From Twitter user, @LAustin_:
I just ran into them at a karaoke bar by my house… mellow night. They were just there hanging out with a few friends.
They were just minding their own business hanging out in a booth with friends.
It was them and 2 other friends. One male, one female.
From Radcollector (L. Austin):
I feel weird having caused such a huge uproar in celebrity gossip, so to set the record straight this is exactly what I saw that night. My friend Lany spotted Robert & Kristen with two other friends (one guy one girl) while we were standing outside our small, local karaoke dive bar, Ye Rustic Inn. Lany is a fan so she told me she thought it would be cool to get a photo with them. Being a photographer and used to approaching people for photos, so I walked up to them and asked if I could take a photo of them with Lany using my iPhone. Kristen was enthusiastic about it, putting her arm around Lany and cracking a smile… however Robert wasn’t keen on the idea… jokingly trying to get me to take the photo with his back to the camera. Kristen told him to stop being an asshole and the result is the photo that spread like wildfire. After I shot the photo everyone headed into the bar and their group went straight into a booth in the back so they could have at least some privacy. From then on I mostly minded my own business. Occasionally I would glace over and their crew would be laughing or joking around with the bartender that was bringing drinks to their table… and their guy friend that was with them sang one karaoke song but “Robsten” never got on the mic. Once the bar closed around 2 everyone shuffled out and as I was biking home I saw their crew hanging around a truck talking, ready to leave to wherever they were going next. Yes they seemed to be enjoying eachother’s company, yes Kristen Stewart is capable of smiling, yes they were sitting next to eachother in a booth… but none of which is clear evidence that Robert and Kristen are “officially back together”… even if my friend Lany told press that she had her hand on his back.

Finally, order has returned to Los Feliz.
Robert Pattinson is back in the States after two months of filming in Australia and, last night, he and Kristen Stewart enjoyed a group date night at one of their favorite L.A. haunts, Ye Rustic Inn.
“They seemed really happy to be with each other,” an eyewitness to the reunion exclusively tells E! News.
“Rob and Kristen were having so much fun together,” the insider said. “They sat in the back of the bar in a booth and were laughing. At one point, they were standing at the bar and were just being normal, as any boyfriend and girlfriend would be with each other.
“They were touchy-feely. She was holding on to his jacket and had her hand on his back. They were just cute.”
And, thanks to Stewart, Pattinson didn’t end up being an a–hole.
“My friend is a photographer so she is not shy about going up to people and asking for photos, so she just asked them for one,” another fellow Ye Rustic Inn patron told us.
“Kristen was super nice,” she said. “She was like ‘You know how many times I get asked that, no problem’. Rob was a little bit more shy. [Stewart] was like, ‘Come over here, Rob, don’t be an a–hole.’ She was laughing and put her arm around me. He smiled and took the pic. She was super friendly.”
Later in the night, the lucky bargoer saw Robsten again outside. “At one point I was outside and they were playing around in the street,” she said. Stewart “and her friend were, like, racing. They were having a lot of fun.”
Reunited, and it feels so good.
