A celeb-sighting controversy has engulfed Defamer HQ, where our careful vetting of your PrivacyWatch tips has yielded an international hunky-vampire crisis. After the jump, help us settle Robert Pattinson's whereabouts once and for all.

One of you claims to have seen Pattinson carousing yesterday in Los Feliz, where "EVERYBODY within 100 feet recognized him." But a London-based reader (whose e-mail at 11 p.m. local time, it should be noted, represents a bracing wake-up call for her clock-watching L.A. counterparts — you know who you are) now sends this rebuke:

I saw someone said they saw Rob in LA on the 8th. I believe they were mistaking [sic] because My friends and I saw Rob in London a couple of hours ago. He was in Covent Garden with his buddies, wearing his normal plaid shirt and black beanie. No one bothered him, to be honest, I don't think most people even realized it WAS him.

Logic might suggest an explanation as simple as, say, overnight air travel. Too convenient! In lieu of easy answers we send this Dueling PrivacyWatch Trial of the Century to you, the jury. Find Robert Pattinson.
