Blake Edwards Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart—once collectively known as "Robsten"—had an intense, dramatic relationship that may have been more insane offscreen than onscreen…which says a lot, considering they played supernatural, melodramatic characters in The Twilight Saga.
Their romance included cohabitation, conspicuous cheating, and covert dates. Why couldn't they make it work? Well, it turns out, there are a lot of reasons these two couldn't last forever outside of the world of vampires and werewolves. Some reports suggested an overlap, with Stewart and Pattinson being spotted holding hands just a week before Angarano came to visit Stewart on the Twilight set.
Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke told Vulture that she actually felt guilty for enabling Stewart to step out on her romance with Angarano. Jezebel reported in that Pattinson was hooking up with fellow Twilight star Nikki Reed throughout the beginning of the franchise's filming and promotional schedules, only ditching her when Stewart finally came around.
Us Weekly published photos taken of Stewart and Sanders making out all over Los Angeles and in a car on July 17, The cheating photos surfaced on July 24, , and the next day, Stewart finally confirmed she was in a relationship with Pattinson for the first time in her anguished apology statement. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry. My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart.
I am praying that we can get through this together. Stewart, sources said, was angry at herself and reportedly took full responsibility for the drama. He couldn't trust her anymore Getty Images Even though Pattinson took Stewart back about the Sanders snafu, the damage was too severe to be undone.
By May , the pair were done for good. Sources told Us Weekly that the pair would often fight about Stewart's infidelity and alleged selfishness, with one insider noting, "He really put her through the wringer.
Ultimately, it was like, 'Either we move past this or we don't. During their time together, Pattinson was accused of hooking up with director David Cronenberg's daughter, Caitlin, as well as a pastry chef and even Megan Fox. After the split, he was linked to Riley Keough, who was actually friendly with Stewart after they co-starred in The Runaways His inner circle including Katy Perry couldn't stand her Getty Images Pattinson's friends and family weren't too keen on K-Stew after the cheating scandal.
Insiders claimed Pattinson's sisters "are disgusted by Kristen. They saw how hurt Rob was after the affair, and that anger hasn't washed away yet.
They feel Kristen embarrassed the entire family by cheating on Rob so publicly. She promised him everything, and they feel she manipulated him, promising things that she just won't deliver. Kristen has reached out to the sisters to make peace, but they have not opened their arms to her. Rob had to tell the girls over and over to forgive Kristen and move on. A source revealed, "Katy has told Rob that she thinks it's a really, really bad idea for him to reunite with Kristen.
Katy warned him that Kristen will end up hurting him again. Kristen only wanted media attention on her own terms Getty Images Since the breakup, Stewart has been vocal about how much she hated fans' attention on her relationship with Pattinson—despite telling the Today show via Us Weekly how much she loves to "keep 'em guessing. I hated it that details of my life were being turned into a commodity and peddled around the world. She told Elle UK in March that she kept the romance quiet "because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialized…We were turned into these characters and placed into this ridiculous comic book, and I was like, 'That's mine.
You're making my relationship something that it's not. He hates fame Getty Images Pattinson didn't like the infamy attached to the romance either, telling The Washington Post his relationship with Stewart wasn't a publicity stunt.
People will say anything. I'm still amazed that people even believe anything [that's said about us]," he said. There's a story line. You have a set character and your storyline is written for you. And it doesn't matter what you do…I mean, I've literally tried to do things to throw people off, and it just doesn't get printed. I'm sure all the hell he went through with Kristen was the final straw for him as far as fame is concerned.
Robert is often starting his working day when Kristen is busy, and vice versa. And he's not the best at sending texts, or keeping in touch in the first place.
Kristen is angry with him because she thinks he's not giving her enough attention—it's absolutely killing her. She's told him off and said she wants more messages, updates…. Online that part of what made Pattinson and Stewart stick was that the actor felt Stewart was the only person who could comprehend his life.
It mattered to so many people…Something personal became not the most personal thing…I was 17 or 18 when it all kind of went down and that's the most uncomfortable, terrible, weird [time].
You're years-old and like, 'Ahhh!
