The 'Twilight Saga' heartthrob has a home in Los Feliz in Los Angeles but decided to move to a gated mansion nine miles away as he doesn't want to run into his former girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, who lives in the same area.
A source told HollywoodLife.com: “Rob has moved out of the Los Feliz area to get away from Kristen and her friends,” the source says. “There were too many memories there for him.
“Rob’s new home is in a gated community in Beverly Hills, where Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera also live. Britney Spears also used to live there.
“It’s very beautiful, but it does not have a lot of furniture. You can tell he has not lived there for very long. It is very sparse right now.”
Robert, 27, is determined to move on from Kristen, 23, after she cheated on him with director Rupert Sanders and while he was recently linked to Riley Keough, he has been getting close to his 'Maps To The Stars' co-star Sarah Gadon.
The pair have been close since meeting on the set of 'Cosmopolis' in 2011 and they have been spending even more time together after reuniting while working on their latest movie.
A source said: "There's a real spark between them. And they've already been spending time together when filming ends for the day.
"They have become very close. When there's a break in filming, they'll often sit on their own and chat.
Sarah's really into the arts and literature, which Rob loves. And they even talk about English soccer together because she watches games on TV. They have a lot in common."
