The home that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson shared in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Los Feliz now stands empty. K-Stew packed her bags over the weekend after Rob did the same late last week. The move-out follows news that the two are no longer on speaking terms in the wake of Kristen’s affair with her Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. Allegedly the two have only exchanged terse texts in recent days.
The story of their once golden romance seems to be going from bad to worse, as rumors are surfacing that Kristen’s “momentary indescrision” with Sanders has actually been going on for quite some time. Photos of the pair having what appears to be a romantic dinner back in May are coming to night, and even Rupert’s own friends and family suspect that this was no one-night-stand. His wife Liberty Ross believes that it has been going on since filming began, while her brother Leopold tells the British People.Co.UK that “It was from the last half of filming and all through post-production, clear into last week.”
Perhaps the biggest question on the Twi-Hard community’s mind is: Why would Kristen do this to Rob? Of course there are so many shades of gray (at least 50), but sources close to Stewart are saying that it was done as a result of jealousy over Rob’s friendship with his Remember Me co-star Emilie de Ravin. The Lost actress was going through a divorce during filming in 2009, and Rob apparently provided a sympathetic ear and made her laugh during the rough time.
The source says that “she [Kristen] found it difficult to cope with Robert being close friends with another woman. As their friendship grew, she became more envious to the point that she would be very upset.” It didn’t help that K-Stew was on the other end of the country in LA while Rob and Emilie were filming the New York-based production. “Nothing romantic ever happened between them but it didn’t make Kristen feel any better about them being so close.”
Of course so far this is all total speculation. But perhaps the most bizarre rumor is that Rob was about to ask Kristen to marry him! This tall tale comes from the less-than-completely reliable Mirror so be sure to have a salt shaker handy. But then again, the couple were reportedly seen trying on engagement rings earlier this month. “Robert hoped to marry Kristen and was making preparations to spring a proposal before she admitted cheating,” their unnamed source reports. “He had bought the house in Los Angeles to be their home and saw them staying there for a long time.”
Regardless of whether or not Rob was really about to pop the question, at this point it seems agreed that Rob can’t even been in the same room as Kristen, and movie honchos are doing what they do best: Freaking out about what this means from a marketing perspective. The promotional tour for the Breaking Dawn Part 2 is set to begin in a month, and the likelihood of the two agreeing to go on the road together is certainly thrown into question. “Fans look forward to seeing them together during interviews. It’s great publicity for the film,” an insider said. “Robert even used to be happy to go to events with Kristen that he wasn’t contractually obligated to go to, like the Teen Choice Awards last Sunday. But now he won’t want to do that.” Factor in stuff like co-presenting at the VMAs on September 6th, and things could get awkward.
And now, as promised, a massive frowny face:
