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.”
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.”
Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson, who recently rekindled his romance with Kristen Steward after she cheated on him with director Rupert Sanders, says shooting the intimate moments between their respective characters Edward Cullen and Bella Swan in the final Twilight films was not easy.
On trying to to look sexy while still making the movie suitable for a younger audience in Breaking Dawn Part 2, Pattinson said “The sex scene in this one is pretty ridiculous as well, you’re shooting stuff to be PG, you’re trying to think of things to make it sexy, it’s supposed to be about the greatest vampire sex you’ve ever had. You try and give a face of ecstasy; guy’s faces I don’t think are really designed to do that.”
The film is the final installment of the ‘Twilight Saga’ franchise and Robert admits he’ll miss all of his castmates once the promotional tour is over, but he will try to stay in touch with everyone. Speaking on ‘The Kyle and Jackie O Show’ on Australian station 2Day FM, Pattinson said “I used to be really close with Kellan (Lutz) … Jackson (Rathbone) has had a baby now … Kellan is always in Korea and shooting movies in bizarre places. But I mean once you’ve had this sort of life altering experience with people it kind of stays with you for a long time.”

Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson overcame his nerves to present a prize to hi Bel Ami co-star Uma Thurman glamorous Elle Women in Hollywood even in Beverly Hills this week. During his speech, Pattinson gushed how much he enjoyed working with her on the hit film, saying “I’m learning how to read tonight. I find this terrifying. (Working with Uma was) a pretty crazy experience. Her role was someone more intelligent, more charming, wittier and better in bed than me. Which, was obviously very difficult to cast.”
Recalling when Uma first walked on set, Robert said “The co-directors s**t their pants and I did a little bit, as well”, to which Uma replied “Rob, you’re a real gentleman on and off the screen.”
Robert’s appearance was not publicized beforehand, and he skipped the red carpet and entered the event through a side entrance at the Four Seasons hotel. It was his first public appearance since confirmation that Pattinson and his estranged girlfriend Kristen Stewart had rekindled their romance after she cheated on Pattinson with director Rupert Sanders.
Other stars who were also honoured at the annual event included Cate Blanchett, Elle Fanning, Emma Watson, Kristen Wiig, Octavia Spencer, Sarah Jessica Parker, Shirley MacLaine and Susan Sarandon.
