Washington: Katy Perry has reportedly encouraged Robert Pattinson to break-up with Kristen Stewart as the singer believes that he deserves a better girlfriend than her.

The handsome hunk recently split with his former `Twilight Saga` co-star after a four year relationship, as his pals, including the `Wide Awake` hit maker, supposedly told him that he deserves better, Contactmusic reported.

A source revealed to Life `n` Style magazine that Perry never really supported the Brit actor`s decision to get back with Stewart, who had a brief affair with married director Rupert Sanders in 2012, and she always said they wouldn`t last.

The insider asserted that Perry told Pattinson that she didn`t think their relationship could withstand the cheating scandal.
