So much for Bella and Edward spending eternity together. Robert Pattinson has reportedly broken up with his long time girlfriend Kristen Stewart. The 26-year-old British actor, who forgave and reconciled with the 22-year-old actress following her “momentary indiscretion” with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders last summer, is said to have ended their four-year relationship over the weekend after a difficult few weeks together.
A source told The Sun newspaper “She flew to LA and was supposed to be Rob’s date for the Golden Globes, but he told her he wants to cool it off. He loves her but would rather go back to being good friends so they can rebuild their trust and focus on work after Twilight. Kristen’s upset, but understands. She shouldn’t have pushed him to reconcile after her infidelity. She’s hoping he’ll come round and time will be a great healer. He was getting so much pressure to ditch her. His friends told him to focus on his career and said she was wrecking his chances.”
The insider also revealed that Kristen is now planning to move to New York and Robert will continue to live in Los Angeles. The friend said “She feels people leave her alone there and she has a bit more peace.”
News of the couple’s split comes just days after they were spotted at a Golden Globes after party together. The Twilight Saga couple put on a united front at award hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s private celebration held at Soho House in West Hollywood after the prestigious ceremony on Sunday night.
Meanwhile, Kristen avoided the Golden Globes altogether and arrived at the VIP after-party in altogether more casual attire at 1 am. She teamed jeans and a baggy sweatshirt with trainers and a backwards cap, hiding her eyes behind shades as she snuck into the star-studded event.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s relationship is under strain. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 stars reportedly can’t stop fighting and friends fear they could be heading for a break-up. A source told Life & Style, “Things with them aren’t good. They’ve been fighting a lot.” The source continued, “Rob isn’t happy. It’s just a matter of time before he ends this.” Robert and Kristen briefly split up last year when she cheated on him with married director Rupert Sanders and Robert has struggled to forgive her despite reconciling.
A source previously said, “Rob is at a point where he sometimes ignores her. He’ll go out and won’t respond to her calls or texts right away. Things will be strained for a while. “She knows she has to go along with it. She is working hard at the relationship.” Friends believe their relationship will be truly tested when they are forced to spend long periods apart on different film sets in the near future. One pal said: “If they are able to work out being apart while Kristen is filming then they have a shot.”
Kristen Stewart has decided not to spend Christmas with her boyfriend Robert Pattinson. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 co-stars, who recently rekindled their relationship, are planning to spend the festive season apart after she spent a “nerve-wracking” Thanksgiving with his family in London last month.
An insider told Heat magazine “The family were smiling at Kristen and looking totally at ease on the red carpet, (during the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere), but back at the family home over the following weekend things were more difficult. They had a meal on Thanksgiving and it was nerve-wracking for Kristen. She felt very uncomfortable and Rob’s sisters couldn’t be completely welcoming. It won’t go back to normal straight away, even if Rob has decided to try again. Rob’s mum wanted him to spend Christmas with them in London and, before their trip to the UK, that had been his and Kristen’s plan. From London, they were going to fly to Mexico for New Year. Rob’s family made it clear that they really want to see him over Christmas and, after the intense promotional tour for Twilight, Rob liked the idea of spending time alone with his family.”
A source previously revealed that the couple were still in the process of rebuilding their relationship following her affair but Kristen is making a huge effort to win back his trust. The source said “She is working hard at the relationship.”
The ‘Twilight Saga’ co-stars, who rekindled their four-year romance after Kristen had an affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders last August, are reportedly spending every night they can together and are more in love than ever.
Sources told HollywoodLife.com “They are not living with each other but they are spending plenty of time with each other and they do sleep over often. Rob usually sleeps over at Kristen’s new home in Los Feliz, rather than the other way around. They are in a really magical place right now despite some lingering trust issues on Rob’s side.”
Kristen apparently won back Robert with a video montage of their happiest moments together. The touching video comprised of photos and footage of their life together made Robert realise he didn’t want to throw their relationship away. A friend of Kristen’s said “She sent Robert the film after bombarding him with hundreds of texts, emails and answer phone messages. It was a last-ditch attempt at getting him back and she spent ages making the video montage using hundreds of photos and hours of home film footage of nights out and holidays.”
The pair have been spotted out several times since they got back together, most recently at a Prince concert in Los Angeles last week, and Kristen recently spoke about how she has learned from her mistake saying “You have to be OK with your own fears. If you’re an honest person you’ll make mistakes, but it’ll be OK. The most interesting things happen after making mistakes.”
