Robert Pattinson was crushed when he learned that the love of his life, Kristen Stewart, cheated on him with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders. We suspect that poor Robert learned this heartbreaking news from Kristen when she gave him the heads up during last summer’s Teen Choice Awards. There were reports of fights backstage between the couple and lots of crying and pleading as Kristen learned that Us Weekly had photographic evidence of her gross infidelity and was going to print it. You can see the look on Rob’s face during the award weekend and it’s not hard to tell he was crushed by the news. He looks like he is an another world.
Robert dumped Kristen when the news broke. He refused to talk to, or see, the suddenly aptly titled Trampire and went into hiding, supposedly at his pal Reese Witherspoon’s ranch. Kristen meanwhile, stopped washing (she doesn’t appear to wash regularly even under the best of circumstances), went anorexic, and stonewalled the media – she was photographed giving vent to her abundant nastiness on a surprised Nick Cassavetes in a parking lot – she essentially retreated into a total sulking funk.
Everybody hated her. Kristen was reviled, not only for cheating on her boyfriend, but for cheating on him with a married man with two kids – a man whose wife, Liberty Ross, Kristen had befriended! How low can you go? Kristen’s “momentary indiscretion” was better suited to an episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills than to a person who can ever be trusted or respected by anyone ever again. For Bella had broken Edward’s heart. Unimaginable and unforgivable.
So fast forward a couple of months and we have the approaching release of the final installment (we pray) of the Twilight franchise, Breaking Dawn Part 2, and Summit lowers the boom. Tamp Vamp and Sulk Boy are informed that regardless of their personal crap, they are doing the premier promo tour together OR ELSE! Of course Rob and Kristen are professional entertainers under iron-clad contracts requiring them to do this promo, no matter what! So they do the promo tour – complete with fake photo ops of them kissing – and Kristen refusing to hold Rob’s hand – but they do it. But now reality is sinking in, Kristen is a cheat and Robert knows it.
A source for Radar tells a story: “Rob and Kristen are at a crossroads right now as to whether he finally accepts they are back together or not.”
“Kristen has been trying so hard to win Rob back, she’s been hanging out with his friends and she even went to London to make a good impression with Rob’s family over the Thanksgiving holiday.”
“She knows his sisters were particularly vocal about their disapproval of Rob taking her back after the affair, so Kristin braved the storm and groveled to them.”
“The problem is, Rob is still dithering on what to do. I think Kristen is now at the stage where she feels it is time for him to get over her affair or perhaps move on,” the source reveals.
So these days not only does Rob have a problem – whether to trust Kristen and open his heart to her once more – but Kristen has a problem. Whenever she meets with anyone male the media naturally takes cruel liberties. A consideration of Kristen’s involvement with Ben Affleck in his Focus film project brought on a storm of snide articles warning that her involvement would lead to the ruination of a his marriage with Jennifer Garner. Her meeting with Sean Penn sparked nasty rumors that she might have slept with the pal of brutal dictator, Hugo Chavez, just to get a part. And on and on it goes.
Is Kristen being held to an unfair standard? Shouldn’t a young Hollywood star be able to cheat on her boyfriend, sleep with a married man with two little kids and a wife who is her ‘friend,’ and then expect everyone to love her despite her behavior? I mean what’s so bad about ruining several lives anyway? Come on people, can’t we just entirely forget that we are human and that we have a few minimal requirements and expectations for the behavior of our celebrities?
