 Who Is Riley Keough? 17 Things You Need To Know About R-Pattz's (Maybe) New Girlfriend

So you know those pictures that surfaced this week of Robert Pattinson driving around LA with a 'mystery red head'? Turns out the mystery redhead is none other than Riley Keough. Rumour has it the pair have started dating since the actor ditched Kristen Stewart last month (sob). So who is this girl who has possibly stolen the much-coveted R-Pattz heart?

Well, Riley graced the cover of US Vogue aged only 15, dontcha know, and made her runway debut for Dolce & Gabbana in Milan. She's since been the face of Dior, modeled for Victoria's Secret and shared the silver screen with Kristen Stewart as well as smooching Kylie Minogue. Yep, Detective Grazia Daily has done a little investigating so you don't have to. Read on for the full fact rundown...

1. She's the granddaughter of actual Elvis Presley

Riley's mum is Lisa Marie Presley. Lisa Marie is the daughter of The King. How cool is that? No wonder R-Pattz is reportedly enthralled by her, especially considering his penchant for crooning. Is a duet on the cards?

Twenty days after Lisa Marie divorced Riley's dad, Benjamin Keough, she married the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Then filed for divorce two years later. What fun she must have had in Neverland, eh?

3. She graced the cover of US Vogue aged 15

We're not entiiirely sure how these two know each other but we have come across several images of Riley and Agy hanging out in true super-cool, hipster style. Sigh.
