No, there is no illicit romance between Rob and the married, pregnant actress -- but Peoplemagazine claims she's letting Rob stay at her "tranquil" estate in Ojai, California until the scandal dies down.
Pattinson and Witherspoon have been close since they starred together in Water for Elephants and Rob apparently felt comfortable enough to ask his friend for help during his time of need.
Meanwhile, GossipCop.com has cleared up some of the biggest rumors that have surfaced in the wake of Kristen's affair:
1. Stewart and Sanders' hookups did not take place during the filming of Snow White, as was claimed in a supposed interview with Sanders' brother-in-law, Leopold Ross. Gossip Cop claims that Ross never gave an interview.
2. Stewart's Snow White co-star Charlize Theron has not inserted herself into the drama. She's off in Africa doing a film, and "this has nothing to do with her."
3. Katy Perry, though friends with Pattinson, is NOT "considering a romantic relationship" with the actor now that his relationship status is unclear.
4. Pattinson was NOT "weeks away" from proposing to Stewart when he found out she was unfaithful.
5. Stewart and Pattinson are NOT fighting over custody of their dog Bear, nor is the actress plotting to "steal" the canine from him.
6. Pattinson has not backed out of confirmed press appearances for Cosmopolis, as was reported by the media.
