Robert Pattinson suspected something was “off” with Kristen weeks earlier

Yesterday, we covered much of the Twihard Meltdown 2012 news coming out of Us Weekly and People Magazine’s cover stories this week. My take: Us Weekly, the outlet that broke the news, is aiming to get Robert Pattinson’s side of the situation – they’re setting him up to be the Katie Holmes/Jennifer Aniston of the breakup. People Magazine seems to be getting more leaks from Kristen Stewart’s team, thus that ham-fisted attempt by a “source” to make Kristen into a poor, pitiful victim “lured” into a horrible situation by an evil man! Yeah. That version isn’t really flying with me either. Anyway, I got the chance to read Us Weekly’s full cover story, and I thought you might enjoy some more highlights:

*Rob is “talking about Stewart incessantly. Though Pattinson is avoid her, he can’t wrap his mind around her actions.” A source close to Rob says, “He’s very self-aware and he understands that she was acting out. But now he’s wondering if Kristen cheated on him with other guys too.”

*Rob has been reading everything online, “He’s demanding to know the truth. And there’s so much bulls—t coming out, he doesn’t know what to believe.”

*Rob’s suspicions: He had a feeling something was up! “Rob suspected something because Kristen is normally very relaxed about her phone… and she was being really weird lately.” Rob had even confronted her about being secretive, “but she reassured him nothing was going on… [but now Rob] is disgusted because he had a feeling about this director.”

*Rupert Sanders “would stare at Kristen on set” while they were filming SWATH. A source says Rupert was “obsessed with Kristen while filming. She was kind of oblivious to it. But I think Rob saw it.”

*A “security source” on the set of SWATH says: “I remember one time in Pembrokeshire last October. Kristen and Rupert were talking and he tucked her hair behind her ear. Their conversations would always be quiet and personal… [but] when he would talk to Charlize Theron, it be a lot of banter – just like two mates.”

*The SWATH cast and director Rupert Sanders had dinner together in Berlin on May 15, and Rupert and Kristen stuck close together. Charlize left first, and Kristen and Rupert stayed to “talk”. But! A source from the set of SWATH says: “I don’t think they were having an affair on the set of Snow White. It started up after the movie and press tour.”

*A source: “No one can believe how totally self-destructive this was. It’s almost like [Kristen] wanted the public to hate her more.”

*Kristen’s parents are Team Sparkles too. John Stewart and Jules Mann-Stewart “feel Kristen has really embarrassed herself and don’t blame Rob for not calling her back. This is not the Kristen they know.”

*Will Rob forgive her? “Rob doesn’t know if he should forgive her. He doesn’t know what to do. His whole experience of coming into fame was with Kristen. He was dependent on her. I don’t know how he’ll function alone.”

[From Us Weekly, print edition]

There’s more about how Rob’s friends are worried about him and how pretty much everybody who worked on the Twilight movies is now solidly Team Rob. Basically, it sounds like everyone is trying to build him up. You know what I think is weird? Despite all of the talk about Rob being “self-aware” and “trying to understand why Kristen did this”… I have to wonder why we aren’t having a conversation about the always-fragile male ego. I don’t know of ANY dude who would be able to go through this enormously public humiliation, having his girlfriend screw around and there are photos and everyone is talking about it – I just don’t see how Rob or any dude could get past the enormity of it. It’s not just cheating – it’s a catastrophe that involves a billion-dollar franchise, millions of fans, and every single person knowing that your little girlfriend has a wandering biscuit. Do you know of any dude who could get past that?

Meanwhile, if all of this isn’t bad enough, Rob has to get into gear in less than two weeks and begin to promote Cosomoplis. The film is being released on August 17, and Rob already had a bunch of press and red carpet commitments for the days leading up to the release. There were some reports that he had already begun to cancel some stuff, but his rep tells People, “Cosmopolis is a film that Robert is very proud of and looks forward to supporting. No confirmed engagements have been canceled. Any reports to the contrary are inaccurate.” So, he’s due at the NYC premiere on August 13, and a press conference the following day. Poor Rob.

    I’d let him sparkle me all night long.

    Just sayin.

  2. Holl says:

    well its a good thing he didnt cancel previous engagements for work because its unprofessional. You shouldn’t let your private life interfere with your work commitments (hello LEANN *sideeye* ). I think if this is true, Kristen was just weak in character and wanted out of the relationship but didnt know how to do it but now realizes everything she’ll be losing and it scares her. The best thing they both can do is stay away from each other for a while and really evaluate if they can move forward.

    And Rupert, you gross. You are old enough to know better.

  3. sup says:

    somebody care to enlighten me here? wasn’t their romance a pr stunt for those movies anyway? once those movies are over so is their “relationship” that’s the feeling i always got from them.

    • Rice says:

      The only lifeform that I feel sorry for is Bear Stewart-Pattinson. Kristen is an A-class slut and Rob is using this mess for further publicity. Why stay at a ranch that was just publicly featured in a magazine? Plus, he’s started jogging???! Yeah right! Why doesn’t he go back to his family in the UK? How much “hiding” can you possibly accomplish in a publicly photographed ranch?!

      • cupidityrox! says:

        Can we please stop calling her slut? I think that’s really uncalled for. She cheated on Rob not us.

      • ORLY says:

        Getting your biscuit munched by another woman’s husband is a bit slutty, don’t you think?

      • Rice says:

        Do you know what makes her a slut? The fact that she was photographed almost spread-eagled in a beetle VW (thank you ORLY). And don’t get confused, Kslut and Ruprick were hot for each other for a while. You don’t wake up one morning with the craving for a good munching by some guy. Momentary indiscretion my ass!

      • Adeli says:

        Well, he has actually been hiding pretty successfully all this time. And he’s probably long gone from the ranch by now. If he was even there to begin with. It could have been a decoy. Do you really think that his team would just divulge his whereabouts and leave him open to be hunted by the paps?

        He hasn’t made any statements through his reps, so I don’t understand why anyone could think that he’s using his heartbreak for publicity. He’s more than likely mortified at how his private life and the very public failure of his relationship is being picked apart by the tabloids.

      • CC says:

        Yea, but too derrogatory, we women aren’t doing ourselves any favors, I mean, c’mon, where the male equivalent for the guy? The married guy? He had no disgustingly and derrogatory equivalent. It’s bad enough guys do it to us, must we do it to other women?

      • Rice says:

        Would it make you feel better if Ruprick was called a man-slut? Then feel better. He is just as disgusting as she is. Just because she is of the female gender, us females must not call her a slut for acting like a slut? I beg to differ. What she did, with the assistance of Ruprick the Manwhore, is slutty. It’s almost hypocritical to hide behind the gender aspect when this girl clearly did a horrible thing. Remember the public outcry against Monica Lewinsky? She was called every name in the book.

      • ORLY says:

        Yeah, see… I don’t give a crap about a women’s lib POV in this instance. I haven’t personally made a habit of calling Kristen names (except for pointing out the reason why Rice said what she did). However, if I (as a woman) put myself in a position of ridicule, then I would just have to suck it up and thicken my skin. I’ll be in no position to call foul.

        As for Rupert Sanders, fell free to call him the equivalent of slut. I feel nothing but apathy as far as he’s concerned. Then again, I haven’t had years of “programming” to hone my disdain for him, as I have with Kristen Stewart.
        A spade is a spade is a spade.

      • MW says:

        I agree with Adeli. He hasn’t publically said ia word and is probably mortified. She probably always had her eyes open for something bigger and better, but meanwhile, he was tolerable and good for business. In other words, I do not think she respected Rob as the “forever man of her dreams”, like he considered her anyway.

    • Liv says:

      I do feel sorry for him, too. He seemed so in love with her. The best thing for his career and self esteem is to break up with her – would any studio want him as lead actor if he’d take her back after this whole mess??

  4. Brown says:

    Yes, you usually do suspect that something is wrong, but you will find every excuse in order to avoid even the blantantly obvious. It’s possible that he confronted Kristen about feeling suspicious of her or maybe even of Sanders, and maybe had his suspicions turned around on him as trust issues and whatnot, which then translates to feelings of guilt for not trusting your partner. Which makes everything so much worse when you find out the truth, because you now feel stupid for feeling guilty because of someone else’s lies.

    Whether the physical affair started during filming or not, it sounds to me like there was an emotional affair going on for a while. For me, that’s almost worse.

    • beyonce's bump says:

      THIS. there are few things worse imo than a wandering partner who makes the suspicious party feel stupid for having trust issues because their intuition is telling them that “something aint right”

      The $hit hits the fan and the parter’s a$$ gets blown wide open and now your tryna ask for forgiveness. I am not saying that cheating should not be a forgivable offence, but if I was the party cheated on, I will find it impossibly hard to trust you and will probably make your life a living hell when i start thinking about your cheating ways. I can NEvEr forget such things.

      • Brown says:

        Yes, it’s a horrible feeling. I know from experience. Suspecting something, confronting your partner, being told that YOU are the crazy one, nothing is going on. I was even told that the only reason he was even speaking with her was because she needed a friend and I wouldn’t give her a chance to get to know her. He guilted me into hanging out with this girl and becoming friends with her. He lied to my face about it right up until the point that I became so suspicious, I looked through his phone (not one of my proudest moments) and found some texts reminding her to take the Plan B pill.

        It wouldn’t have been so horrible if he hadn’t made me feel crazy and guilty for suspecting something all along. After the truth came out, I just felt so stupid for believing him, stupid for feeling guilty about not trusting him, and above all else, stupid for not believing my own instincts and better judgement (they’ve never steered me wrong.)

        Being cheated on is a really shameful feeling. I would hate to have to experience it in the public eye. I think everyone is right to say that the mass pity is probably eating him alive, because so much of that shame comes from anger with yourself for not being enough and trusting a liar over yourself. Hope he can pull it together for the Cosmopolis promo.

      • Liv says:

        Isn’t this a phenomen? My friend’s boyfriend cheated on her and when she confronted him before, he got very angry and accused her of not trusting him, blabla. He was always very afraid she would cheat, though he was the one who did!

      • MW says:

        Gee @ Brown, I can relate. Went thru that with my first husband, my HS “sweetheart”. Only I went thru his wallet. That was the day I lost trust. And it was a physical thing I felt. Horrible. Hope you don’t feel any shame after he guilt-tripped and humiliated you. I finally had had enough and left my ex and now, he is the one who evolved into an even worse, evil human being, not me. Yep, trust your gut.

      • anon33 says:

        Woo, same here. HS sweetheart was constantly jealous, didn’t “allow” me to even have male friends, didn’t “let” me go out with my girlfriends, who were all “whores” in his eyes anyway. He on the other hand acted shady all the time, would say he wasn’t coming over bc he was “hanging with the boys” but would be out all night and not call me until the next day, went to strip clubs and lied about it,etc etc. Typical jealous asshole/emotionally abusive behavior. Made me think I was going crazy all the time.

        Come to find out, as we were winding our relationship down and breaking up, he was involved with someone else to the point where he GOT HER PREGNANT. Never told me any of it-I found this out a year later when a family friend ran into him at the mall with a toddler who he introduced as his son. The kid was old enough to where it was obvious that the child was conceived while we were still together. My mind was blown.

      • gg says:

        @ Liv, it is a thing. Usually the one who is the most accusatory of cheating is the one who IS cheating. I experienced that and it was ludicrous. Good think I wanted to break up anyway because of the “jealousy” (HA!) and it gave me a great exit. :) So, it was bye-bye sucka, hate your life.

  5. Launicaangelina says:

    I was wondering the same thing, how will he get past this? It’s an enormous catastrophe for sure because it mixes business and personal. It will be something the public and media will always remember, no matter how many years go by.

    • Anait says:

      Honestly, it’s an horrible situation because both private feelings and business are involved, but why all these worries about this guy? What if it had happened to a woman? And it often happens to women to be publicly humiliated by a “cheating man/husband”… how do they survived? Liberty Ross, for example, that has the misfortune to be married to that worthy director…

  6. ORLY says:

    “he understands she was acting out”.
    What does that even mean? Is she a five year old having a tantrum? This is such BS.

    • lisa2 says:

      That’s the part I laughed at. Like she is a petulant child and he is the “adult”

      Look he is a professional. I’m sure he will handle the promotion for his film just fine. He doesn’t have to answer personal questions and the studio can control that (He’s just here to talk about the movie and not his personal life) see?? If a reporter goes there then they are cut off. And that happens even when a celebrity is not in the middle of some scandal. I think the time it will be difficult is during the promotion of BD 2. Because the characters are a couple. But they will do separate interviews and arrive at different times, or they will all pose with the cast and not side by side.

      but we have to wait and see. I’m sure they are planning that situation now.

    • Rice says:

      ORLY the more this mess unfolds is the more I feel like the public is being taken for fools. And I’m talking about from all sides of Munchgate. I’ve been trying to ignore the stories but they’re being shoved in my face in such rapid succession that I’m unable to breathe (and it’s not just from the stench of cookie). I am willing to bet it will be dragged out until November.

    • MW says:

      Yeah, “acting out”. Is he actually giving her a break because she has convinced him her “stardom” is so huge that she is entitled take out on him whatever mood she is in, or she can do whatever she feels like to express herself, and he has to put up with it? Why does con artist come to mind?

  7. cmc says:

    Her parents being Team Sparkle…well. I’ve never cheated, but I’d like to think my parents would rally by my side (while quietly telling me to never do that again). That would suck for her if even her parents are like “girl, you f*cked up. Your mom says Rob can cry his sparkle tears all over her if he wants.”

  8. marie says:

    The public apology has got to sting too. I mean dayum, it’s bad enough that it happened and there are pictures, but to confirm it and try and apologise in a magazine, uhh no. It would be over for most people I think, NO ONE likes to be humiliated. I speak from experience. My ex was cheating and A LOT of people knew about it, well I busted him and these “friends” came forward and said “he’s been doing it for months” So not only did I feel betrayed, but I also felt like the worlds biggest fool. That was harder for me to get over because pride is a very tricky thing. And even if this is a PR stunt as many folks have claimed, this still makes him look bad..

    Also, I don’t think Kristen did this to make the public hate her more, she wasn’t thinking about that. All she was thinking about was herself and Rupert, she was too selfish to consider the consequences. And, while her parents might not agree with what Kristen did, there is NO WAY they would publicly say it..

    • Bad Irene says:

      I hear ya, I had an ex cheat on me also, my friend knew all about it and didn’t tell me a thing. I think it hurt more that she said nothing and I just felt like a fool that everyone was gossiping and laughing about, can’t imagine it being played out on this scale though. it has to hurt that its so, so public and dealing with the fans and studio expectations has to be hell.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @bad Irene, I doubt people were laughing at you. I knew my friend’s significant other was cheating on her and told her. She confronted him and he called ME a liar! She wanted so badly to believe him that she ended te friendship with me and kept the cheater. Months later, she caught him in the act, but never approaced me to repair the friendship. I will never again tell a friend about a cheating partner (but I have made it clear to all of my friends that I would want them to tell me if my husband cheated). Perhaps your friend didn’t tell you BECAUSE she cared about you, not because she didn’t care about you. Also, I doubt anyone was laughing at you but I’m certain they were bashing your cheating cad of an ex!

      • Brown says:

        ^^@Mort, I had the same experience. Knew my friend was being cheated on by his girl and didn’t say anything because I didn’t want to jeopardize our friendship. After she broke up with him and he was heartbroken, I thought it was safe to tell him about it, like maybe it would help him get over her. He confronted her about it, she called me a liar, and he ended OUR friendship. I will never tell a friend about a cheating partner again.

        It’s probably not that they were all laughing at you behind your back. There’s nothing funny about watching a friend be played. They probably just didn’t want to approach you about it if they thought there was a possibility that you might not believe them.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @brown, I think a lot of people can become irrationally blinded by love, to the point where they’re willing to risk friendships with the people who truly care about them. Personally, I’d be more embarrassed to stay with a cheater than to remain friends with someone who cared enough about me to spare me exposure to STI’s.

      • Janet says:

        @bad irene: Sweetie, nobody was laughing at you. Put yourself in your friends’ place. You find out your friend’s husband is cheating on her. How in the world do you tell her? What do you say to her and how do you say it? Believe me, nobody wants to be in that situation.

      • gg says:

        @BadIrene – it is common to feel that way, like they were making fun of you, but it was probably the opposite. They probably felt bad for you.

      • flan says:

        I heard pretty strong rumors about a friend being cheated on one time, but did not say a word, because I heard too many stories like the one you two mentioned.

        I’m glad I didn’t, because I’m quite sure they would have thought I would have been an evil bitch if I had said something.

  9. GiGi says:

    I’ve been thinking about the male ego aspect of this as well. Men, generally, want to feel respected and needed in relationships. In one blow, he was publicly defrauded of both. The male ego does not like humiliation (I mean, who does?).

    You just get the feeling this is going to mess with him for awhile. I’d hate to be his next girlfriend. Hopefully not. Hopefully he picks himself up and moves on well.

  10. Esmom says:

    “They’re setting him up to be the Katie Holmes/Jennifer Aniston of the breakup,” lol.

    In any case, I could almost see him being more traumatized by all this media coverage/scrutiny than by the breakup itself. The guy is already uncomfortable enough with his stardom, so this scandal stuff must be excruciating to him.

  11. Naye in VA says:

    I wish we could assume the same about women, that after being publicly humiliated by wandering dong, we would would just know a woman would not go back. Sometimes I think we try to hard to fix things that aren’t worth it. Its one thing to work out infidelity privately, but to have literally the whole world know…I could never. And i cant speak for Liberty Ross, but if the whole world knew, and i worked with the girl, and the chick was hanging around my kids, I could NEVER get that trust back.
    You have to know it would be the talk of the family barbecue for the next ten years at least. sheesh

    • diana says:

      Ikr. Imagine Liberty Ross or her children going out with that dog. She will be constantly thinking what the people they meet or her own family is thinking about her husband and about her for staying on with him after such a public affair. Sometimes women who stay together with their cheating husbands are totally dependent, but Liberty does nt throw that vibe.
      If I were Liberty I ‘d wait till KS team finishes all its pr moves, and then quietly announce the seperation.
      But really double stds do exist. The public has so much sympathy still for the perceived victimhood of JA but hardly anyone feels sympathy for guys like Timberlake who were cheated upon.
      Anyway I dont believe this will affect the careers of anyone involved including Sanders. Because people have a short memory and Hollywood thrives on scandal with any publicity being good publicity. As long as the film is good noone in the audience cares about the personal lives of the stars.

  12. Hanna says:

    Oh, poor little Sparklie! :’(((

  13. Adeli says:

    I don’t know how any dude could get past such a monumental humiliation and betrayal.

    Rob should really just cut his losses. Clearly she’s far too immature to be in a committed relationship. The thing about their relationship is that Kristen always seemed to have the upper hand and he was like the adoring puppy panting after her.

    She took major advantage of that. She was often snarky to him in public and acted aloof toward him, rebuffing any attempt at even the mildest PDA. Frankly, it was embarassing to watch at times. I’m pretty sure she got off on it too. So what’s a girl to do when she already has a man’s balls in her back pocket? Why, put it in a blender of course for the whole world to see!

    She knew that he abhorred cheating and valued honesty in his relationships. If she hadn’t been caught, she would never have told him about her “momentary indiscretion”, thus continuing to lie to the man she “loves and respects” the most.

    All this tearful begging him to take her back is just her narcissistic way of trying to regain control of the situation. This girl is toxic.

    I know it hurts like a mofo now, but you’re much better off without her in the long run Rob. FREE SPARKLES!

  14. Gwen says:

    I don’t see how it’s a gender thing to have a hurt and frail ego when your partner cheats on you. I think it’s a human thing. Especially if he suspected it and she lied to him.

    • Disbelieving says:

      We do spend too much time thinking in gender terms, don’t we?

      • CC says:

        Well, when a guy cheats everyone goes “awww, give him a second chance, I’m sure he’s sorry” to the girl.

        When girls cheats is more like “dude! the b*tch made a fool out of you, dump her fast” from everyone around the guy.

      • kingkayski says:

        I cannot understand why is it well and good for a guy to pick up a girl to have his dong polished,but oh it’s such a sin for a girl to pick up a guy ho to have her biscuit munched,so what, she’s not married to a guy yet.Don’t think that Ruptrick hasn’t been doing these for a while now ,not necessarily with Kstew ,he seems to be good at whipering shit in a girls ears to get her going.He wants to be Kristens bitch ,why should we care.Better let all this stuff now out of her system than after they’re married,now it’s up to Rob if he will let her off the hook easily.They always say the worst rake makes a good husband ,why should’t that be applied to women as well.If we don’t stop these women to women bashing ,especially when they’re down,we’ll never get equal pay with men,they’ll always think we’re just a bunched of hens clucking all the time.

  15. Jacq says:

    What’s up with the radio silence from the Twilight cast?

    • another nina says:

      They are prohibited from discussing Robsten. At least, a Canadian from the wolf-pack mentioned it in a interview. He continued by saying that he did not care, and said that he noticed no chemistry between them, and that he thought they were really good friends…

      • Anname says:

        I never heard of that interview. Do you remember who/when it was?

      • another nina says:

        I had it bookmarked at my old computer but it no longer works. It was a Canadian website, and it dealt with movies, not just interviews. I read it around last February, early March the latest but the interview itself was from an earlier period. I guess you can search it by finding out who was Canadian in a wolf-pack.
        Anyway, he was asked a specific question about a supposedly incredible chemistry of Robsten.

      • ORLY says:

        ooooh. Okay. I thought it was a new interview. I didn’t know there were Canadian in the Wolf pack.
        Some girl who is credited as “wedding guest” or something, spoke to the tabs recently. Lainey had it on her site.

      • another nina says:

        Now that I thought of it, he could have been vampire, not a wolf. Anyway, it was a dark haired guy and he said that the studio specifically told them not to discuss Robsten, and that he found it weird, and that he tended to care about his own affairs rather than someone else. And then he said that he saw no particular chemistry and that he thought they were really good friends. I thought he was sort of condescending, and I remember that we discussed with my colleague that at least apparently they didn’t make them signing non-disclosure.

    • Adeli says:

      I’m sure the Twi cast is just fed up with all the robsten drama over the past 4 years. They are constantly asked about Rob and Kristen in interviews. And now that they’ve come to the end and it’s supposed to be this big celebration, it’s marred by f–king robsten drama…again. I can imagine that they are all kinds of pissed off and not at all looking forward to the bullsh-t questions coming their way. And I totally believe that most of them would be Team Rob.

  16. GiGi says:

    I actually think his best PR move is to lay low until his Cosmopolis junket and then be seen out in NYC in the company of a mystery woman. It puts almost a month between the scandal and would put an end to the “poor Rob, crying into his bong” rumors.

  17. Monkey Jim says:

    Finally saw US Weekly – and apart from fact he’s ‘reading all about it’ though Reese says of her place you ‘can’t access email’ – he should come back to London, as the story is getting so much less play over here. Think this is because he’s been canonized/she’s more hated by US press anyway, but our moral compass is v different, and in ‘scandal’ terms, this is pretty lame. It’s nothing compared to some of the stuff other high profile celebs have got up to & away with (hiiiiii David Beckham!!). So I def think its more about the public humiliation than what actually did/not happen (and only she knows). I’d imagine his team want him to dump her ASAP for sake of his image – regardless, it’s time to fish or cut bait, Sparkles!!

    • another nina says:

      MJ, I refuse to understand why he is not in London already. It seems so illogical that he keeps hovering in LA… Unless, he has developed obsession over Reese’s goats, of course…

      • Anname says:

        His professional life is centered here, and LA is his home now. He said himself most of his London friends aren’t in London anymore (Tom Sturridge is there, but has the new baby). I don’t think he is going to run home to his parents… I am not surprised he stayed local.

      • Monkey Jim says:

        Well I doubt he’s at Reese’s place anymore anyway. If he’s still in LA could be work commits/dog/wanting to talk to Kristen. If he did go to London and the Reese thing was BS no one would prob know as most Londoners are either on hols or ‘working’ from home while Games are on and the press is at Olympic venues.

        I did (as you know!) think they were legit, but this whole will/he won’t he dump her in the tabs is like a cheesy soap opera.

      • Ann says:

        It would be tough to slip in and out of London unnoticed. Paps are everywhere to capture celebs and athletes coming and going from London right now. He has business here next week, and is preparing to shoot a new film next month. I wouldn’t be surprised if he goes to London after New York. I’ll bet he’s looking forward to getting on set, it’s going to be remote and likely unaccessible to media.

  18. serena says:

    On a positive note (guess it’s the only one) Rob will get tons of attention, so maybe this movie won’t bomb and he’d be offered others things too.

    • Ann says:

      Cosmopolis is a limited release, arthouse film. It’s never been intended as a mainstream movie. He did it for the experience of working with Cronenberg, the chance to stretch himself artistically, and expand his image with the critics. Which it has, his critical reviews have been quite good, even among those who don’t care for the film.

      No worries about him lining up new stuff. He’s got 2 films in preproduction that were recently announced, and supposedly a couple more in development.

  19. Pers says:

    Not dismissing Kristen’s actions and choices, but that director Rupert Sanders is a predator for young female flesh. He’s gross. I hope his wife doesn’t take him back (sigh…but she will…for the children…ugh), but I hope he’s finished directing anything short than pizza delivery commercials.

  20. John Thing says:

    So, why do we call him Sparkles?

  21. Liv says:

    “I just don’t see how Rob or any dude could get past the enormity of it. It’s not just cheating – it’s a catastrophe that involves a billion-dollar franchise.”

    This so much. I really hope he breaks up with her, cause that’s the only way for him to get out of it remaining relatively sane. But I can imagine he’s taking her back, cause he thinks she’s his only love. We will see.

  22. Gia says:

    I met my husband when I was 21. Now we’re married with a new baby (I’m 34 now). I understand that Rob thought this was forever…but maybe not in Hollywood. Full of predators. I agree K was acting out just as a lot of women her age do. She’s growing up and, I think, is doing things she thinks grown ups do…screw around. I agree with what someone else said above, that she maybe wanted to get caught but now that the curtain has fallen, she is intensely regretful of the choices she has made. I’ve had to forgive my husband for many things and he has had to forgive me. if you’re going to stay with someone for life forgiveness is part of the deal especially if they stay in showbiz. Life throws a lot of shit at you in ‘normal’ life and I can’t imagine the pressure fame brings. Only Rob really knows K…but I do think it is worth another chance.

    • Mel says:

      I’ve been married 22 years and is that because we are perfect?? Lol. No. It’s because we have forgiven each other over a lot of things. Part of being an adult is dealing with real life issues.

      • Sunnee says:

        Been married 19yrs. I’ve forgiven him for shit I never thought I’d look past when we got hitched. The only thing I’d never forgive is him hitting me or abusing kids. You make a commitment, you work through s!!t, for better or worse should mean something or why get married? My dad is tops, he cheated, my mom kicked him out and threw his clothes in the yard. I was 5 and we all missed him. They’re married 50yrs, he’s mellowed. Maybe Liberty’s not a fool if she forgives, she’s in it for life.

    • Anname says:

      I agree that she is probably intensely regretful, and is starting to realize just how unbelievably bad it was (both personally and professionally). Good, frankly, she needs to face those consequences. But for Rob, I think he is capable of mentally separating his career and his personal life. If he wants her back, he’ll take her back, career implications be d_mned.

      But if he does take her back, I don’t think it would be any time soon. He is filming 2 movies starting in the fall, so he will be on location for 6+ months It is a good time for a break. See how he feels after that time? Is he over her, or if loves her enough to reconcile.

    • Dani says:

      Who acts out at 22????? Someone who has EVERYTHING definitely has no reason to.

    • autumndaze says:

      Forgiveness in marriage is a requirement; however, there are boundaries drawn for each individual in a committed relationship that are deal-breakers.

      Infidelity and/or abuse are mine. Trust, once broken, is nearly impossible to reclaim.

  23. Francesca says:

    She should have kept her mouth shut and saved everyone all this grief and embrassment.

  24. Aussie girl says:

    Looking @ photo’s of them they never really suited each other. He looks like a classic james dean & she just looks like a wanna be bad ass. She’ll date some rocker in a band, cause she just soooo hard core & he”ll date some classy young actress, like Emma Watson ?

  25. aquarius64 says:

    I think male ego is going to win out here. Bye-bye K-Stew. You are now the most hated other woman in America since Rielle Hunter.

  26. Sam says:

    I have never particularly cared about these two and the Twilight movies are horrible IMO, but i just can’t stop reading about this story. I feel so horrible for him. What a horrible thing to have to go through and in such a public way when they were really quite a private couple.
    Her apology statement seemed so bizarre to me, again because they are so private. I mean she might have thought that it would stop people guessing if it had happened, but it exploded anyway (predictably).
    So sad and strange.
    And Poor Rob to have to put on a strong front and promote Cosmopolis in the middle of all of this. Good for him for still doing it though. David Cronenberg is an amazing director and i am sure it will be a great movie that Rob should be very proud to be involved with.

  27. Mary says:

    I don’t think this girl has really loved Robert in the true sense of the word. She is always calling him on a lot of things. I guess, in the beginning she was so infatuated with him He is English, well-mannered and very self-effacing. And he introduced her into this exciting group of the West London set. She get to interact with young up and coming actors, musicians, who by the way did not ever sell Robert out. I think when Norman Mailer once said that sometimes, you just want to be the pretty one. She’s got fame and money, but Robert has always the influence and the bigger star. Just watch the Oprah show. It was all about Robert. Her reaction by cheating on him is not strange at all. It is by the book.She will learn from this. As for Robert, he will cut his losses and move on. It is better for things to end in horror than for a horror which has no end, i.e. staying with her. This is a cerebral guy. He was never ruled by emotions. As he said in that Eclipse commentary, you are gonna be judged by your actions, and that is what he is gonna to her.

  28. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    Even though I am not Rob Pattinson (lol), but I can feel how embarrassing it is going to be when he will have to attend the premier of Cosmopolis and then the press conference. Oh God! How is gonna face the world? *cries*

  29. DeltaJuliet says:

    Good Lord. I’ve ben cheated on before and yes it sucks. No, it wasn’t public like this (obviously)
    But COME ON! Is Sparkles that much of a pu$$y that we need to keep weeping for his broken heart? They aren’t married, they didn’t have kids, she barely looked like she wanted to stand next to him for the longest time. It’s not the biggest tragedy in the world folks. He’ll move on and be fine.

  30. Nan209 says:

    “Rob suspected something because Kristen is normally very relaxed about her phone… and she was being really weird lately.” – Classic *modern* sign of cheating. When the phone is under the pillow instead of the night stand or makes a trip to the potty with them then worry. I’ve had it happen and it is a gut reaction that something isn’t right in the matrix. Poor guy. I really feel for him and Liberty especially since I’ve been there. There is life after an affair but if you stay married the damage is very, very difficult to recover from and it stays always in the back of your mind. We are doing very well now but it’s been nearly 10 years. If I were to give Rob advice I’d say run for the hills. You’re young, she has a lot of maturing to do, you don’t need a sh!tty start to any potential marriage. She is showing who she is, believe her.

  31. LittleDeadGirl says:

    I honestly feel sorry for him not from the point he got cheated on, that sucks but he’ll get over it, but how public it has been and the fact he has to promote a movie right in the midst of this fiasco. I mean you know everyone at premier will be asking him about the affair. I think we are going to see him having a public breakdown where he punches some interviewer. He seems like a tightly wound guy when it comes to this kind of personal stuff.

  32. Hmm says:

    I think it is kind of funny that everybody is so so upset about her apology. If she had not everbody would by all: She should issue an apology! Theres no win for her. Still poor Rob!

  33. The Original MJ says:

    So, let me get this straight: the director “would stare at Kristen on set” during filming? Oh, the humanity!

  34. Paloma says:

    Most all of us have gotten through hellacious times in our lives by putting one foot in front of the other. I believe Rob will be able to do this and come out stronger on the other end.

  35. Chickie Baby says:

    Hopefully he will throw himself into work for a while and get some breathing room while the publicity dies down a bit. I still say he’s going to come out this better than ever, but right now the enormous pain is going to supercede everything else.

    And the comments about both her parents and the male ego are so true. If my parents had ANY chance of knowing anything about my private life, I wouldn’t risk it. But then again, if I had Rob Pattinson, I wouldn’t do anything that could possibly damage our relationship, and especially in a public forum.

  36. yani says:

    I’m sure Rob’s handlers will be advising the media that he won’t be commenting on his private life. What is expected will be the hordes of paparazzi and fans who will turn up to support his Cosmopolis premiere.

  37. Reece says:

    *puts giggles aside*
    It’s one thing to cheat. It adds a whole new level when one or both of the Cheaters is married. Another new level of low when you actually know and have been involved with the family. Then a whole new chapter of WTF when it’s in broad daylight, in pictures, everywhere and you can’t escape them. I don’t anybody male or female who could get past the enormity of the public humiliation of it. I certainly couldn’t.

    Also, “Rob doesn’t know if he should forgive her. He doesn’t know what to do. His whole experience of coming into fame was with Kristen. He was dependent on her. I don’t know how he’ll function alone.” <<<THIS is exactly what I've always thought their relationship is/was. Not actually based on friendship or love but holding on to each other to survive in the midst of a storm. Now that they both know how to navigate the weather, BOOM, implosion.
    That story sounds like he's in the "I want to know every detail" phase. He's going to sooner or later have to suck it up & talk to her. Hopefully she'll be honest. He might forgive her eventually but I don't think they should get back together.

    Everybody thinking her career will be hurt, pfffbbt…Nah! She'll have to lay low for a while. Absolutely. Now that EVERYBODY knows she's "that chick" she'll be getting a call from Harvey Weinstein soon enough. lol
    *giggles back on*

  38. why says:

    I am surprised at how quick people can be in making judgments. How many of us can truly say that we have not made worse mistakes than those made by Kristen Stewart. Some of us can honestly admit that we should deserve worse punishments for the secret things we do if only they were exposed for the whole world to see.
    I hope they can work it out, it s a big decision to throwing away four years of happiness.. I respect Rob very much. He’s a real man unlike Rupert (cheating) Sanders. Some middle aged married men are lecherous when it comes to young women. Especially the ones who think they are unrisistable

    • Minime says:

      if it were 4 years of hapiness why did she cheated on him? Oh, maybe she was just feeling blue on that day…
      And well, I think that we are all humans and we all do a lot of sh*t in our lifes but I seriously doubt that a LOT of us did a “worse mistake” than this one. And she is not really being punished…She was not really happy, she cheated, relationship’s over. Everything’s fine, both can move on, they are young and free and if she and her PR keep their mouth shut for some time everyone will forget about it. Unfortunately the wife and children of the guy with whom she publicly “got her freak on” can’t say that it will be that easy for them, isn’t it? Talk about punishment!

    • mls8662 says:

      I agree. I mean she’s not a child molester and she didn’t murder anyone! She’s a young talented woman who did a very stupid thing. Quick,lets tie her down and brand a scarlet A in the middle of her forehead!You do know I was kidding with that last sentence, right?This is in reply to why says:

    • LittleDeadGirl says:

      She is hardly being sentenced to death. None of us are doing anything to her. She’s a supremely rich young woman who is being punished by her work place (aka the paps and Hollywood). I’m gonna save my remorce for people who deserve it.

      Second, I don’t see why you are calling out Rupert on cheating but saying we should forgive Kristen for doing the same thing? I’m confused on your stance.

    • Bex says:

      I can. I can totally, honestly say that I’ve never done something worse (or even as bad) as what she did.

      I DO think it’s very interesting that while I can’t think of a man who could forgive and forget for something like this, women (in Hollywood and elsewhere) do it all. the. damn. time.

      Who’s being stupid? Men or women? And why is there such a big divide in behavior?

  39. rtms says:

    I’ve always believed that the “relationship” was nothing more than a PR stunt and that they were at best friends with benefits. I’m thinking Stewart wanted out of the whole thing but couldn’t stay on script for a few more months and as is her usual thing decided to break it off her own way, not realizing there is a reason for PR people etc. It’s backfired on her big time.

    And then there is the fact that the weeks preceding the breakup, Rob was getting beaten down in the press as a has been who had let a real film career pass him by in doing Twilight. You had Andrew Garfield mocking him, critics savaging his performance in Cosmo…Now suddenly everyone is on his side, his career can only go up etc. Nice turn around don’t you think?

    • giddy says:

      Ummmm… bingo! You nailed it. Everyone walks away with something they wanted… And ticket sales soar… so they believe… And we’ll see if — won’t we…

      Pity those children to be involved in all this. Can’t imagine a mother putting her kids through it. Still trying to wrap my head around that one.

    • Anname says:

      If you follow Rob and/or Kristen closely, it is obvious they were in a real relationship. Private doesn’t mean fake.
      Nobody benefits from this. Tickets sales will not soar, BD will probably take a hit. A family is shattered. Universal may have lost the SWATH sequel. Summit is scrambling to figure out what to do with BD promo. There is nothing but harm from this. I hardly think this is Kristen “not staying on script”. It’s nuts.

    • Carolyn says:

      Wow. Kristen being torn between two men…doesn’t that sound awfully like the plot of Twilight? If Summit handles this right…there’s going to be far more interest in BD2 that there would have otherwise be. They will all come out of this unscathed. Many real couples work out their issues when infidelity happens. Hollywood and the public have short memories.

    Somes world from SOCRATE

    The fall is not a failure
    The failure is to stay there we fell

  41. mls8662 says:

    Do you really believe Rob would appreciate you trashing this young woman?Did you ever stop to think maybe he really loves Kristen?If he forgives her or not is not up to us, his family,his friends or advisers. It’s up to him. I will not think any less of him if he takes her back. I think if he had been caught in this type of situation she would forgive him.

  42. blondie10101 says:

    I’d be more surprised if he took her back. It was such a betrayal and I think he really did care about her. I feel so bad for him, to be humiliated like that on a global scale is incomprehensible.

  43. why says:

    talking about his ego male who as humiliated Rob the more kristen by cheating on him or us weekly by publishing 49 pics of the makeout session yes she cheat now we all thanks us weekly people mafg pop sugar……
    i m not talking about her mistakes or poor choice i m talking about the publication of 49 pics one or two was enought to understand the situation.

  44. ooowl says:

    the most interesting thing about this whole scandel is it’s reflection on our society on women and sexuality.

    • PleaseICU says:

      If by women and sexuality you mean sideeying a woman who used her sexuality to phuck a married man after befriending the man’s wife and children and stepping out on her boyfriend of 4 years? Yep. Cheating is never cool.

      I’m not judging KStew for daring to have the sex. I’m sideeying her for sex with a married man while in a committed relationship herself. There is a HUGE difference there. And to conflate the two, that being down on Kristen for screwing a married man and cheating on her boyfriend is the same as being down on Kristen for having sex at all, isn’t cool either IMO.

  45. Adeli says:

    I’m kinda disturbed by how the article in Us Weekly portrays Rob as this co-dependent mess who’s unable to navigate fame and stardom without Kristen. As if… *insert mega kstew-style eye-roll* He’s been charming the socks off Hollywood since he got out of the starting gates. I think he’ll be perfectly fine. Maybe even better. And bonus, he won’t have to defend Miss Stank Attitude’s ass when she inevitably puts her foot in it.

  46. opinion says:

    Maybe it sounds foolish to say this but I feel really badly for Kristen Stewart. I know that cheating is “never okay” because 99% of the time, it does destroy even the greatest, most loving relationships. But sometimes temptation does overpower love (temporarily) because the forbidden fruit tastes the sweetest, we always want what we can’t have, blah blah blah. People think those aren’t excuses, but when you actually experience being put into the situation of wanting someone other than the person you’re with, I think you understand more why people cheat and why maybe they should be forgiven. Kristen was with Rob for 3 years, which is a good amount of time when you’re young. I’m sure he’s a great boyfriend and all that, but sometimes I think people take advantage of the fact that they already found someone so great and so loving/caring/good for them that they lose sight of why that person is so valuable. I don’t know how to word any of this sdkjnsjkdgn but point blank, I think that in every case, both sides should be heard. Even if someone does something that we think (at first) is unforgivable, sometimes hearing it all and being able to judge the sincerity of an apology can change how we feel. This isn’t really a for or against cheating post, or at least I’m not intending for it to be. It’s not right to hurt the ones we love, but sometimes we do accidentally even when we know what our actions mean/could potentially do. I wouldn’t advise anyone to ever cheat on their boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife, but I don’t think it’s an unforgivable act. A lot of people that do it, do it because they don’t really love/care about their partner and they feel torn between multiple people. But there are some people that never mean to hurt the ones they care the most about. I’m not saying I wouldn’t be completely devastated if the person I was with had some kind of indiscretion. I probably would end things and feel too betrayed to associate with them for a long period of time but how long can you really stay angry for? Sometimes it feels better to just speak openly and honestly with the people that hurt you/you hurt because you never know how their words can heal the wounds they caused you/you’ve caused them.

    • Pia says:

      You are allowed to change your mind about a person, to become attracted to someone else, but overlapping two people is inexcusable. You owe your current partner the decency of breaking it off with them FIRST if you are so interested in somebody else. So yes, those reasons for cheating are still just “excuses”. Lame ones.

  47. RHONYC says:

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

  48. IzzyB says:

    I don’t understand the attraction and I hate Twilight, but Rob has always seemed like a nice guy and I think he will pull it together for promotion and act admirably.

    As for KStews parents being “Team Rob”, I don’t think they printed out banners or anything, I think they’re just disappointed in her choices.
