We’ve heard about staying together for the kids, but staying together for the parents just sounds weird. But that’s what’s happening with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, at least if these reports in RadarOnline are to be believed. According to this story, Kristen’s mother Jules Stewart was even more bummed than the rest of us Twihards when it was revealed that her daughter had an affair with her Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. “It ripped her heart in two when she saw those pictures of Kristen in a compromising situation with Rupert,” an inside source claims. “And she couldn’t believe what her daughter had done.”
The fling spelled the end of Robsten for a time, but the two are rumored to be drifting closer, even going so far as moving back in together. According to the insider, Mrs. Stewart has strongly supported her daughter’s attempts at reconciliation, and is even having words with Rob one-on-one. She apparently had a very close relationship with Rob, and thinks of him like a son. “She has been speaking with Robert, reiterating Kristen’s pleas for another chance and is trying to help build up trust between the pair. It is early days, but if this reconciliation can bring Robert and Kristen back together, they’ll have Jules to thank.” The friend goes on to describe K-Stew’s mom as the “glue” that’s keeping them together. We’ve heard about hands on parenting, but this seems a tad bit extreme.
But not everyone is rooting for Twilight‘s pale golden couple to reunite romantically. For a start, Rob’s family is rumored to be less than enthused at the thought of him going back with a woman who cheated on him. “His family and friends are totally against the idea,” the source confirmed, ” And although he’s his own man and makes his own decisions there are times when he thinks they are right.” Even Rob himself understandably has conflicting emotions. “There are moments when he continually asks her questions about the affair, so it’s all still very tense. They have some really serious trust issues. But they were brought together again by a great friendship so there could be hope.” Whatever the truth, we wish the best for these love lorn young folks. Hang in there!
