Kristen Stewart’s team insists that ‘manipulative’ Rupert Sanders pursued her

As I covered a bit yesterday, Kristen Stewart is super, super-sad. Unbelievably sad. Spiraling into a depression. It might even be true. Or it might be some PR positioning to generate sympathy. Or both, really. As we already discussed, Kristen is allegedly “crying herself to sleep” and her friends fear that she is having some kind of “meltdown”. Most of the stories seem to be originating from this week’s “How Kristen Is Doing” story in Us Weekly. Well, I got the chance to read the whole story… and I’m still not able to bring myself to find her sympathetic. Like, at all. Do I think she deserves such far and wide condemnation? Of course not. But I also don’t think she’s particularly sympathetic either. More highlights from Us Weekly’s story:

*Kristen “can’t do anything. She is really so distraught.”

*But! Rob is “finally listening.” An insider says, “They are talking. Rob doesn’t hate her and he’s not mad… he just doesn’t get why she did it.” The question plagues him even as he keeps his cool through awkward interviews. Adds the insider, “He loves her and thinks about her constantly.”

*So what does Kristen tell Rob? “She insists that she and Rupert Sanders never had sex” and that Sanders pursued HER. “Rupert’s manipulative,” says the insider. “She didn’t go after this guy – he sought her out and she stupidly went for it.”

*Still, she’s pragmatic: “The heartache with Rob is so much to bear, but Kristen has always valued her career. She doesn’t want this to jeopardize her future in acting.”

*Rob is selling the Los Feliz home they shared. “He said there are too many memories.”

*Rob and Kristen’s friends think they’ll get back together eventually. “Right now their relationship isn’t defined. Rob’s dealing with a lot of indecision, but their mutual friends think they will get back together. Kristen, after all, has said she wants to have his children.” As for Rob, “He’s a great guy. This truly isn’t the end of them.”

The thing that caught my eye is the now-constant blame-shift onto Rupert Sanders. HE IS THE BAD MAN, Team Kristen has been saying. He manipulated her! He’s older! He’s powerful! She’s an idiot and he took advantage of her! He came on to her! Once again, she’s an idiot! She’s not to blame because she’s just a dumb kid! And of course, the ever important claim: THEY NEVER SLEPT TOGETHER. You know what? Stop it, Team Kristen. I have no problem believing that Rupert Sanders is a bad dude, a sleaze, a dirtbag, a manipulative POS. But Kristen really needs to own her sh-t. It takes two to tango, even if the tango partner is an idiot.

Meanwhile, Radar has a funny little story about how this scandal is making Kristen a more spiritual person. A source told Radar, “Kristen is trying to find some inner peace within herself. And she is reading a lot… Strangely enough, the one author that has really been resonating with her is Gandhi, who she decided to find out more about after watching Eat, Pray Love. She began reading a biography of his life, then turned to Gandhi’s own writing because she was seeking solace. The quote that particularly stands out for her is, ‘The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.’ While she doesn’t know if Rob could forgive her, that statement has tempered her own regret. The remorse she has isn’t completely gone, but Gandhi’s words have certainly helped her find peace with the whole situation. Kristen isn’t beating herself up over it, she’s accepted that everyone makes mistakes and she has to learn from it.” OMG. GIRL, DO NOT INVOKE THE MAHATMA’S GOOD NAME IN YOUR STUPID TWIHARD SCANDAL.

    Gandhi was like, constantly flipping the bird.

    Personal responsibility. What is it?

    Girl needs to own her bad decision and accept everything that is coming at her. Trying to deflect the blame as though she was vulnerable and taken advantage of is insulting to Rob, Liberty, her children, and the general public at large. It is so obviously a ploy, and so obviously not in-line with the image she has been desperately trying to project throughout her entire career. Strong, independent, smart, edgy, hardcore, mature beyond her years… these are not qualities of a wide-eyed ingenue who gets seduced by the big mean forty-something married father (who is not even hot, btw)…. these are the qualities of like, I don’t know, some idiot like Swifty. Although after all these stories coming out, methinks Swifty may not be as much of an idiot as I thought before…

    Anyway, I would have so much more respect for her if she would just own it. *I* made a bad decision. *I* destroyed my relationship. *I* chose to pick him up and hook up in the backseat of a Mini Cooper. These were decisions *I* made, and *I* accept the repurcussions, but I will continue to do my job. Take it or leave it.

    It wouldn’t make me like her any more, but I would respect that stand much more than this one.

    • CTgirl says:

      +1, KStew’s team just needs to be quiet. RS didn’t force her, as is obvious from the photos. This idea that she’s was easily manipulated makes her look less than smart and shows that she and her team think that the public is easily manipulated by their stance that KStew is a victim.

      • CC says:

        This crap that all women are helpless pawns when around men really needs to stop. The big bad Sanders got inside her car…how?

        lol

        She wanted it, the thrill, at least or she wouldn’t have gone through it. The movie was over, there was no reason for her to be dealing with him.

      • Amelia says:

        Well, the girl did want to be ‘f*cked over’ after all. Who was Sanders to deny her a moment of tradegy … -_-
        Go sit in the corner until you’ve matured several years, and preferably, after a few acting courses.

      • blasted1 says:

        You’re 100% right. I know everybody is freaking out because she pretty much killed any future Twilight money and that franchise was a money machine! But, that ship has sailed and the p.r. team needs to STFU and stop issuing all these stupid mea culpas and explanations. If I were KStew, I would get some new handlers, drop out sight for 6 months or so, get a new gig and carry on like nothing happened! This crap will never die down if her team keeps issuing daily bulletins of what a bitch she thinks she is and how Rupert conned her and all that other crap.

    • Rice says:

      Thank you Brown. You echo my sentiments exactly. She CHOSE to put herself in this mess. He may have pursued her but the choice was ultimately hers. Now she has to suffer the consequences of it. If this story is true, she is a pretentious, immature person and she has the worst PR team in history.

    • Diana says:

      I agree with you girls wholeheartedly. Could not have said it better myself. Stewart needs to take responsability for her actions and stop trying to get a free pass out of the mess she created in the first place. Own your damn mistakes and learn from them so you don’t make an asshole out of yourself again.

    • ol cranky says:

      this idiotic insistance on making Stewart out to be a victim is why people will continue to call Stewart out for this.

      Yes the guy is older and a director but she is a huge star and, as such, Stewart was actually the one in the position of power, not Saunders. How do we know she didn’t aggressively pursue, manipulate and seduce him? Sorry, neither of those fools is a victim and Stewart’scamp and her fans need to STFU and accept that

      • Brown says:

        Exactly. I mean, of course I am calling for her to just own this, accept it for what it is, be an adult, be responsible, hold herself accountable for her own actions, whatever. BUT, if she can’t even do that, then she seriously needs to just have everyone she knows (includes herself, her team, her friends, her anonymous sources, Jodie Foster & Co., etc) just back off and sit the F DOWN. Let this die. It would already be mostly dead if they would stop leaking these horrible attempts to try and paint her as a victim in order to garner sympathy from the public. Just shut. The F. UP.

    • sallyreo says:

      Deflect the general public? SHE DOES NOT OWE US AN EXPLANATION!

      We are the ones who have made it our busines and since we are pretty much like saints, not hipocrats, but saints,
      holier than thou, we are all spewing our venom towards her. All we need to do now, when she comes on stage for the
      premier, is to be ready with stones to throw at her!

      I don’t know what else we need to do to
      make sure she dissappears from the face of the earth. She has already been called every derragotory name in the Enlish language, but it still not enough. We blame CB and Hl, but they are only feeding us the crap and we keep on eating it, like candy. Oh, but we are the “perfect ones”.

      • aquarius64 says:

        Sorry she’s the one to make it everyone’s business by cheating in BROAD DAYLIGHT on a PUBLIC STREET, PUBLICLY issue an apology to Rob, and PUBLICLY play the victim card, all in an attempt to save her career. Defenders such as yourself are not helping; you come off as enablers, allowing her to think she can commit any indecent act, or even commit a crime and not answer for it. If she doesn’t take FULL responsibility for her actions here (that self-serving apology she issued on 7/25 doesn’t count) this can end very badly for her.

      • Brown says:

        @sally, you have been here on these boards since day 1 defending your girl, and I’ve got to say I am impressed. You are absolutely, positively, 100% loyal to her. That loyalty is something that you must be aware of, must be proud of. So how can you overlook her lack of loyalty toward “the one person she loves and respects the most”?

        To be so loyal to someone, yet know that they themselves do not have any understanding of what that word means, must be frustrating. So I applaud your ability to look past it.

        As far as not owing the public an explanation, I would agree if it was a non-celebrity. For instance, I’ve done things in my life that I regret, and I don’t owe YOU an explanation.

        BUT that is not the case, is it? She IS a celebrity. A very, very, VERY famous one at that. And not only that, she came forward and issued a statement TO the general public that invited skepticism and questioning based off of it’s shady substance. If she had kept her mouth shut about the whole thing, then yes, you would be correct. But she didn’t and whether that was intentional or a PR mistake or what, it’s done.

        The bottom line is: people are not upset because she is a cheater. Many people in Hollywood have cheated and been forgiven. People are upset because she is a hypocrite. Proclaiming you are one thing and then acting the opposite is hypocritical. And then on top of that, after you’ve been caught, to come out and once again act in direct conflict with everything you’ve proclaimed to be in order to deflect the blame and paint yourself in a positive light, is even MORE hypocritical.

        Good for you, sticking by your girl. Loyal, you are. But remember: she’s not.

      • Rory says:

        @sallyreo
        I have never seen anyone on Celebitchy claiming that they were perfect. To ask someone to own their mistakes is to ask that the person be self aware and mature. Obviously Stewart is not able to comply with this request. Blaming others or deflecting is not the behavior of an adult, and neither is pointing the finger at other people because they aren’t perfect either. Everyone makes stupid choices in life.
        Choosing to take responsibility for our choices makes us mature adults.

      • pafakell says:

        sallyreo – I agree that KS does not owe us an explanation. I believe the public apology was for RP and nobody else. If this crap that tries to make her out to be the victim is actually coming from her then I honestly believe it is aimed at RP and only RP, too. However, because there are so many with hate and spite out for her I wouldn’t be surprised if this latest victim scenario is actually coming from some of those quarters. Her team tried to see how “victim Kristen” would play (after a week of utter insanity from the public) with that one comment to People Magazine I saw here on CB the 2nd week after this scandal broke and needless to say it didn’t go over too well, so I can’t imagine they would continue on with it. Unless, of course, it’s aimed at Rob.

        I think there are far too many people who think that KS’s public apology (where, ironically, she DID take responsibility 1 second after the sh*t hit the fan, lol) gives them the right to (constantly and profoundly) judge her. If it’s not that then it’s her inability to take responsibility (yes, we the public are a fickle bunch, especially if we couldn’t stand her before, lol. But the big question remains: WHY does she have to take responsibility for this debacle with us?), or her celebrity status, or her hypocrisy (all of those saying “yes, I have made mistakes too but at least I’m not a hypocrite so I get to judge her!” need to do a little bit of soul searching because that’s the biggest lol yet). She didn’t commit a crime (lol aquarius) or even an indecent act. She was kissing with a man in her car in the middle of an empty parking lot and being somewhat affectionate with him in a park. Obviously neither one knew someone was watching them through a telephoto lens.

        The bottom line is that nobody should be worrying about Kristen’s disloyalty except the one person she was disloyal to, and that’s RP (and if this victim stuff is a load of crap then RS, too, actually). She wasn’t disloyal to the fans who put her on such an impossible pedestal because she is not owned by them, and she certainly wasn’t disloyal to any of her non fans.

      • bb says:

        well Ksrew has no problem getting paid the big bucks, so it should be our business how she presents herself , we , the fans pay her bills after all. To open your legs to a married man with children is quiet cruel

  3. Eleonor says:

    her team should be fired. The statement sucked (momentary indiscrection??WTF?), this one is even worse.

    • Liv says:

      It’s embarrassing. Seriously.

      She literally asked for all this, because she

      1. cheated in public and
      2. stated in an interview that she wants to be fucked up by life,

      because her own life would be too easy and smooth….how stupid is that!!

      Plus she told everyone what an old soul she is and how mature and far above over her peers – and now he persuaded her, like a little girl?!!

      Doesn’t she have friends who call her out for all this bullshit??

      • Aussie girl says:

        Hit the nail on the head @ liv. But you forgot about how fame feels like she is been raped. Does “like” Gandhi ” like” feel really deep to ” like” you Kirsten ??

      • Aussie girl says:

        Sorry I just read the headline to this blog again. I have an image of bad evil rupert face like PAC man chasing after her biscut. Run Kirsten, run! Oh that’s right your so bad ass you don’t run.

      • stinky says:

        who goes to Griffith Park & the Hollywood sign for privacy!?? Gimme a break, its full of people cycling, coming & going, etc. Its hardly a private place. Thats the thing i keep coming back to. Who thought THAT was a good idea?-?

      • Liv says:

        @ Aussie girl
        The rape-argument is always a sign for stupidity, isn’t it? Every celeb who’s using it just seems so ignorant and dumb!

        @ stinky
        There are two options I can imagine, besides they faked the scandal, but I just can’t believe that.

        - They met in public several times before and no one noticed them, so they thought they would be safe there

        - She wanted to get caught (to get out of her relationship?)

  4. KWM says:

    Ugh. Her PR people need to let this die. Constantly reminding people of it is a mistake.

    Her using the Ghandhi quote, ticks me off. It is another example of her not taking responsibility.

    Rob is “weak” if he cant forgive her? Puhlease.

  5. serena says:

    “Kristen, after all, has said she wants to have his children.” As for Rob, “

    LOL this is surely bs or Team Kristen. So she wants his children and that’s why they should be together again? Bulls-t.

    Oh and this: “‘The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.’ While she doesn’t know if Rob could forgive her, that statement has tempered her own regret. Kristen isn’t beating herself up over it, she’s accepted that everyone makes mistakes and she has to learn from it.”

    First: The forgiveness statement is just YOUR excuse, and second do not mix up Gandhi in you f-king mess. Third, don’t temper your regrets. You were conscious of the situation, that he had wife and kids, so the ‘naive’ act is just dumb. It’s not like he did it while you were sleeping, Kris, and you seemed pretty happily cuddling with him -never seen her smile like that by the way- LOL.

    Everyone makes mistakes so it’s fine if I cheated and admitted it (because I was papd) -> That’s how I read it.

    She is pissing me off more and more. Better to shut it if you don’t want anymore haters.

  6. ClaireB says:

    Eat, pray, love huh? This movie about a selfish wealthy woman blaming others for her mistakes? …dadadada…….that was easy i know.

  7. Blupp says:

    Tiger Woods was also pursued by those women, they only wanted his money. he fell for his emotions :( poor guy. (sounds so strange when you give guys this excuse)

    people will have to accept that women also have lust for sex. it annoys me that this is brought up when women are only looking for sex, then its cheered “a true, independent woman who knows what she wants” but when it comes to something bad like cheating women are again only victims to our emotions, no sex drive, no rational thinking.
    kristen knew what she wanted and she got it. being caught and having to face the consequences must suck but he and she deserve it. kristen might just lose her career but he lost his family.

  8. embertine says:

    While I agree that a much older man screwing around on his wife with a young woman who IS HIS EMPLOYEE is seriously dodgy in the ‘informed consent’ stakes, I don’t really believe that poor little Kristen is the powerless victim in all of this.

    Ridiculously played, PR team. No cookie for you.

    • Eleonor says:

      even Tom Cruise has a better PR team!

    • carrie says:

      She wasn’t his employee though. The film wrapped back in December. So even the abuse of power excuses hold no water when you’re meeting up with your ex-director 7 months after you stopped filming.

      • Blupp says:

        this. if she had been a complete new starlet and he was as powerful as steven spielberg (meaning he could practically end her whole career with one bad word)i would understand it. but come on kristen had about 100 times his power. she isnt starving, she isnt desperate for roles, no excuses.

      • geekychick says:

        …who should be your future director, too. He was set for SWATH 2.
        She cheated, period.
        But the director-actor/artist relationship is more of a psychological thing, not exactly contract-based. My point is, there are number of times I’ve seen or heard (from my best friend, an actress) about artsy (aka sleazy), emotionally manipulative directors (in theater!) who make you feel cornered (or dazzled)…and often you’ll hear “eh, he’s got friends/he’ll go places and remember those who were good to him wink, wink” from “good-natured” friends in the business.
        I’m not saying she was cornered, I’m just trying to explain that director-actor relationship isn’t based exclusively on who makes more money, it can be (and usually is) pretty complicated. And, knowing about that world, I think he should get thrown to the dogs.
        But she did the cheating also, and her personal life will suffer because of it, no one is denying that. IMO, only her personal life should suffer.

      • jamie says:

        He wasn’t set for Snow White 2. There IS no Snow White 2. There was no script, no greenlight, no decisions made, and Kristen’s smart enough to realize it wasn’t going to happen even before this scandal. It simply wasn’t successful enough to warrant a sequel. Everything involving it has been PR, first to make the film seem like a bigger success than it was (see also: “sequels” to Tron, Green Lantern) and then as a tool to paint Kristen as a victim.

  9. dee says:

    Boo-hoo K-stew. Let me bath in your tears and your PR team overworked sweat. Rupert is still an f-ing douche though

  10. tripmom says:

    I always thought there was something slightly off about her face, but I couldn’t put my finger on what it was. It finally hit me with that middle finger photo. She has a HUGE chin. Like, Leno-style.

  11. hugo says:

    Enough of blaming others and playing victim Trampire.
    Who is dumb enough to believe she didn’t fk him?

    And once again Pattinson is portryed as her lovsick doormat worshipping to her feet. Just like Edward to his Bella.

    Her PR team wants to make her some desirable woman who can do anything and men would still want her but she is just a narcissist, egomaniac, immature spoiled HW actress.

  12. Liv says:

    “…even if the tango partner is an idiot.”

    Haha, so true ;-)

  13. ava says:

    Love this part… “She doesn’t want this to jeopardize her future in acting”. Um actually her ACTING will jeopardize her future in acting. She can’t act.

  14. Jennifer12 says:

    Whatever glimmer of sympathy I had for a dumb mistake- and it was just a glimmer- is gone. Look at that sneaky quote: forgiveness is an attribute of the strong. So now it’s Rob’s fault if they don’t get back together? Poor Kristen is the message: seduced by a big mean old director and abandoned by her boyfriend who won’t even listen to her when she says sorry which should make it all better. But that’s okay because he just isn’t strong enough to forgive and get back together. Right, fanbase that she flips off and refuses to give interviews for and claims she’s this weird Valley girl who doesn’t give a s–t about anything? Woman, would you please STOP already? “I loved him, and I messed up and I’m in pain but relationships are like that. I got together with a douchebag director and should have respected his wife and kids but I didn’t. I will not get into that situation again.” See how easy? Own it already. You’re not anyone’s victim, you manipulate the men around you, and what you don’t want to say is that you really, really care about being a Hollywood star with big films to your name. You’re as fake as the people you claim to disdain. You don’t want to be an indie actress, you’re not hardcore, you CHOOSE big films. You CHOSE to sleep with Rupert, even though you’re pretending to be Bill Clinton: “I didn’t have relations with that director!” She deserves the hole she’s digging for herself. As for that idiot Rupert, he gave up a gorgeous wife and two kids to get served by a 22 year old. Nice play, tool.

    • tripmom says:

      Everything in this post is completely true, exactly right, and perfectly stated.

      • Jennifer12 says:

        Aw, thank you! :) Just call it like I see it. She’s such a hypocrite and I know she is young, but she is an adult. You have to take responsibility for what you’ve done, whether they’re mistakes or not. She’s pointing a finger at everything and everyone.

    • Veruca says:

      Preach it, Jen!

      I did lots of dumbass stuff at her age, too.

      All my choice. And my fault.

      And I really hate it when people quote brilliance to justify their stupidity. She needs to just go away for a bit.

      • Jennifer12 says:

        :) I’m too old to be a Twihard and not invested in their relationship, so it’s easier for me to observe, maybe. I did a lot of dumb stuff, too, but I can’t stand how she blames everything and everyone for errors she’s made. I don’t like how she tries to pretend she’s this badass tough girl who scorns the press and Hollywood when she’s as standard as they come. Cares about her career, cares about being cast in big films, cares what the public/press think (cares about herself mainly)….. she’s a Tryhard. She’s always manipulated the men around her and now she’s trying to pretend she’s a victim of a (douchebag) director who “seduced” her and a mean old boyfriend who isn’t strong enough to forgive her? Rupert must be kicking himself and I hope he’s aiming where he should.

    • Izzy says:

      Aha! @Jennifer12, I wondered if I was reading too much into that quote, I’m glad someone else thought it sounded like a dig too.

  15. Sue says:

    These stories are getting as old as her flipping the finger……. Grow up, own your mistake, and move on! Will never see the attraction to this woman, she is just yuck…. from the messy hair to the finger flipping……

  16. Mel says:

    I feel bad for her. She is getting all the blame. I feel she has taken ownership of what happened but that’s not enough for people. Let’s call her names – trampire? Seriously? Rip her apart and gleefully enjoy her downfall.

    • bns says:

      Maybe if her PR team would shut up people would stop talking about it and it would die down. She’s just making herself look worse by trying to play the victim and setting up meetings with the paps.

    • MarenGermany says:

      you are right, mel!
      this is really the first time gossiping left me with a bitter taste in my mouth.
      what this young woman has to endure right now is in no way okay, no matter what. woody allen and o.j. simpson didnt have to go through this kind of cruelty. I really feel for her, just because everyone slams her.
      girl is on the floor, why does everybody feel the need to keep kickin?

      • Ducky La Rue says:

        “what this young woman has to endure right now is in no way okay, no matter what. woody allen and o.j. simpson didnt have to go through this kind of cruelty.”

        Are you serious??? I can only presume that you’re too young to remember the fallout from those scandals. Also, all of them brought that sh*t down upon their own heads, so still not feeling the sympathy.

        This is a tempest in a Twihard teapot – it’ll be forgotten and replaced with a new scandal soon enough. Kristen just needs to shut up and wait out the storm.

  17. dorothy says:

    If she and her PR team would stop constantly talking about it, it would die down.

  18. Hécate says:

    Go way KStew!! Please, her Pr team thinks that everyone has the IQ of Ryan Dumb Lochte!! The victim card doesn’t suit you.

  19. Aud says:

    Her PR people need to realise that the more they shove her emotionless face in our faces, that the outcome will more likely be more negative.
    So tired of seeing her and her middle finger.
    If I was a film studio head, I’d make sure she never had a leading role again. She is a waste of space. The only reason her star rose was due to the Twilight rubbish. Now that this is ending, I doubt she’ll make an impact. She’ll fade…thankfully.

  20. Po says:

    Ok, so Im no PR genius but wouldn’t it have made more sense to just say nothing, let the breakup with Rob happen, and just never see the director again? She could have leaked stories about it all being a huge mistake and continued on with her pretense of being this hardcore girl. This would have worked for her. Instead she’s trying to make people pity her. You can’t go from giving the finger and being too cool for the room to trying to make people feel bad for you. Bad move.

  21. Aria says:

    Bull sh*t!

    KS PR team needs to stop these stories. They don’t help her in anyway. They are just stupid.

  22. carrie says:

    Her pr team needs to stop. They’re just dragging this out. And the back and forth between the “she’s just a young girl who was taken advantage of” media and the “stop making excuses for her” public is what’s fueling this now.

    And I really hope “we never had sex and he manipulated me” isn’t the story she’s trying to sell RPattz. Because I’d be insulted as hell if I were him.

  23. marie says:

    she (& her PR) make it hard to like her. Her PR team has got to be a bunch of twi-hards, because the crap they’re spewing is what fan-fics are made of..I can see a bunch of 12 yr old girls hunched over Ghandi’s book just looking for a quote to latch on to, and they need to quit. As Kaiser said, don’t bring Ghandi’s name into your cheating scandal.

    IMO, the best thing for her PR team to do would be to STFU and stop trying to garner sympathy, cause it’s not working.

    • Maria says:

      Her Pr team probably has checked out what her fans are writing about her and what kinds of desperate explanations they are giving to this whole cheating scandal to save the idolized picture about her. And now they are just using directly those pathetic explanations one by one to save whatever fandom she still has left. The problem is, that she just seems more and more pathetic and sleazy for the rest of the public outside the crazy fandom with this whole “pity me, I was just manipulated, being mad at me is just being weak, I’m the victim here” -shenanigans.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Definitely. The PR team is making things much, much worse. Although many have argued that they’re genius in the fact that they are targeting her teen fanbase. I don’t know-I don’t think that this would go over well with smart teens but maybe *smart teens* and *Twi-hards* are mutually exclusive?

        Regardless, I think most of us are pretty offended by her playing the innocent victim card. An apology is an acknowledgement that she did something wrong. She originally apologized, admitted guilt so why back-track now???

  24. Ellen says:

    This whole “Rupert seduced me” story isn’t working at all. But I’m not 100% convinced it’s coming from Stewart’s camp, because why would anyone on her side give anything to US Weekly? US Weekly’s the magazine that “ruined her life” in the first place.

    If this were in People, I’d believe that someone from Stewart’s camp was talking — because People didn’t break the story in the first place, and because it was to People that Kristen gave that really stupid sobbing apology.

    I guess my real question is, how do we know when the tabloids are making it up and when they’re getting real info from a person’s PR person, etc?

    • hugo says:

      Because the entire article is written with the purpose to make her a poor naive young victim. It wants you to pity her and say “give her a break”. Problem is it contradicts the image and everything she has said and done in the past.

    • jamie says:

      People doesn’t really continually cover these stories after a certain point. They’re not strictly a tabloid. So they’ll focus on human interest stories and actual celebrity spreads. US Weekly is the top tabloid. And I doubt they’re spreading the “they never had sex” part out of the goodness of their heart. If this wasn’t coming from Stewart’s team, this wouldn’t be working so hard to garner sympathy for her or excuse her actions. There’s also the very obvious name dropping of her C-list friend in there, which makes me think she’s probably one of the sources.

    • Rs says:

      Her camp prob did an exchange with US weekly: some exclusive inside info for the more scandalous pics from that day. There were rumors of bj pics

  25. TXCinderella says:

    I doubt Kristen is spiraling into depression, she’s much too edgy and cool for that. **eye roll** This chick has no class, and that is evident by the bird flipping picture.

  26. Mourning the Death of Music says:

    Why must she hash this out in public?

  27. Rory says:

    “Kristen isn’t beating herself up over it”
    Wow. Unbelievable.

  28. Nan209 says:

    Oh somebody change her diaper, she’s starting to stink.

    She is only a victim of herself and her own decisions. What to zen this out – accept that the choice to lose the things you hold dear were already made, gravel darling and then gravel some more to the people who matter (that is not the twihard fans) and then tell your PR people to STFU.

  29. Jade says:

    It takes two to tango but damn Kstew has taken 99.9% of the heat.
    She apologized and it sucks that people still have so much of hate on.
    Plus I feel bad simply bc of those horrible Trampire shirts.

    • SpunkyPR says:

      I would agree with you except, you only keep hearing about Kristen’s side of the story. Why is her team still talking about this? I agree with other posters who’ve said her team should just not comment and let it die down because it’s Hollywood and this stuff does go away. Rob is looking classy because he’s not commenting, not that he is, it just looks that way and that’s what she should do.

    • PleaseICU says:

      I think a lot of people at this point are shading her because of how horribly her PR people and her friends/family are handling this on her behalf. They’re just flat out insulting the public’s collective intelligence on an almost daily basis lately.

      Maybe not fair to KStew but they’re acting as KStew’s mouthpiece/POV right now and every word from their side has been about painting her as some frail, weak, easily manipulated victim of EVERYONE, including Rob, and enabling every shifty, sh-tty thing she’s done or said. Just own what she did, stop trying to toss even Rob under the bus to save her career/fanbase and let it die down. Maybe she’d actually learn something from this and grow up a bit if everyone around her would stop trying to explain and blame away her own conscious decisions and actions.

      She’s the one who was begging for life to “f*ck her over”–her words. Well, it did because of her own dumb entitled actions and now she’s whining about it because gosh darnit, it kinda sucks when life’s tough and people aren’t up your rear end 24/7.

      If her friends, family, and PR team would just STFU and let this story die maybe, just maybe, the shade against her would die down. The more they try and whitewash her and paint her as a victim of everyone involved, including those she screwed over, the more backlash she’s likely going to get because contrary to what her PR team assume the non-Twithard public aren’t mindless idiots who believe whatever her team spins today to keep the BellaEdward fantasy alive.

  30. Mia 4S says:

    This whole thing is ridiculous. There was an article on Lainey’s site that put it really well; to paraphrase, a few months ago if someone had been patting her on the head saying “poor silly little girl, of course you don’t know any better!”, she would have punched them in the face! She told us she’s an adult, she’s mature, so take your adult consequences and stop trying to sell the story of the poor, innocent little thing who was so easily manipulated! No one with half a brain is buying it!

  31. Brad says:

    I, too, am so sick of the heavy-handed PR Kristen Stewart’s team is serving the public.

    This is not a sexist issue, this is about actions having consequences. Stewart is not a child and she was not “lured” by Sanders into doing anything she didn’t want to do.

  32. Dana says:

    Im sorry but how do you have the balls to cheat on your boyfriend of (3?) years with a married father and not have the balls to stomach the consequences? She prob realized she got caught, apologized and begged for the rest of the day, cried that night, then smoked a fatty and was fine.

  33. Julia _S says:

    Kristen Stewart was clearly in an ongoing, on-set, sexual relationship with her director and for months she lied to her boyfriend and basically treated him like an idiot.

    Now her camp are wheeling out damage limitation in the shape of flunkies like Gossip Cop, Sweeney, Giovanni Agnelli, a misguided Foster, while making deals with paps and outlets as they attempt to tell everyone they’re the bad guys for not finding anything remotely cute about Stewart’s actions.

    I don’t plan on buying a T-shirt and never would but I don’t see anything to admire or pity Stewart for.

    For someone who preaches to the masses about being yourself, I have seen precious little integrity from her. Do Universal really think the public will stand for a Snow White and The Huntsman sequel with this tainted actress in it?

    My advice to Robert Pattinson,consider yourself lucky you saw Stewart for what she is now. Marriage material she is not. Anyone who tells you to to “shut the “f*– up” on camera or off is not “the one.” Go on with your life, make great movies and remember your own words.

    “Things fall apart when they’re meant to fall apart.”

    • geekychick says:

      I’m embarrassed to know this, and I’m sorry for being so petty, but he said “shut up” in front of cameras to her, too. I think it was some New Moon interview.

    • Janet says:

      My God, have you seen what a joke GossipCop has turned into? Hordes of insane Twihards have taken over that web site. Any post about either Stewart or Pattinson is guaranteed to generate 900 comments by KStew fans who insist on believing they never broke up. I realize they probably have nothing else to live for, but still…

  34. evyn says:

    …and next week she will be in rehab for her sex addiction.

  35. bammer says:

    She better be careful with this. At some point Rupurt might come out swinging. He might be trying to downplay what happened to save his marriage to Liberty but TeamStewart is practically calling him a rapist. I’m sure he’s got texts and lots of info to spill if he wanted to. If his wife has left him anyway he might not have anything left to lose.

    • aquarius64 says:

      I was thinking the same thing. If Liberty files for divorce Rupert has nothing to lose (besides money to pay child support). He’s being painted by Stewart’s team as a sexual predator; and if that portrayal sticks it could impact him professionally. What’s to stop Rupert to produce text messages, cellphone pictures of a nude Stewart that SHE sent to him, or geez, a sex tape? All showing she was a willing participant? And I don’t recall Rupert saying there was no sex, just Kristen’s team. It will be the final nail in Stewart’s coffin if that kind of evidence surfaces.

    • meg says:

      I’m also wondering when and how the Sanders camp will respond. I’m seeing charges of sexual harassment thrown about, which is ridiculous of course, yet I’m surprised he hasn’t yet shot back. Sparing his wife and children further public humiliation? hmm Nice thought but a bit hard to believe Rupert would suddenly have an urge to take the high road.

    • pafakell says:

      I agree. I know there are some – no, MANY – skeezy people with power in HW but RS just doesn’t strike me as one of them YET. He’s new to the whole scene and to me that whole parking lot/park situation seemed almost high schoolish. I think what he did to his family was terrible, and I don’t believe that meet-up was the first time they were affectionate with each other – but damn! they were like a couple of amateurs.

      Then again there is also the possibility that all of this is not coming from Stewart’s camp. It might just be the tabloids making stuff up or even people who want to sabotage her. That Ghandi quote is a bit much, don’t you think? If the victim stuff is coming from Stewart then it must be meant for Pattinson because it’s not working anywhere else (except maybe her fans? I don’t know), and if that’s the case then that quote just killed whatever she may have been trying to do. Anyway, it’s ridiculous to me that she would even talk to anyone about how some quote relieved her of some guilt, let alone confide in a “friend” who would then tell Radar Online all about it. I mean, did Radar ask, “Well, what’s she reading?” Give me a break.

  36. carly says:

    why is this being blamed on her, why everything is PR, give me a break, tabloids have running with crazy stories for over a month, with sources they never mention, not everything is coming from her.

    She apologized, she confessed and apologized, she hasn’t said anything else, wy dont you people wait until she ACTUALLY says something HERSELF, and then hate on her, she is not playing the victim, other people are, wait for an interview where she cries for pity to rip her apart.

    • Vivian says:

      I agree. With so much fabrication by crazed fans, haters and to perpetuate the scandle, I can’t keep up any more. I hated Twilight books and movies. Fan of Sparkles more than her but I didn’t hate her. She did apologize and claimed responsibility. But ppl are saying her apology isn’t sincere or that she’s sorry for getting caught etc. Yes, she’s ungrateful, smug, spoilt, immature woman but right now nothing she does will be acceptable.. There’s too much hate. The truth of it all can be a mixture of everything – this immature woman made a terrible choice by having the affair (she’s not the brightest to think of consequences) but I also can believe that he chased her. Truth is never black and white.

    • I Choose Me says:

      The initial apology sanctioned by her PR people wasn’t too savvy if you ask me (I think the wording could have been better) but I agree that we haven’t had anything official from her camp since then and I agree that most of these poor Kristen stories are coming from the tabs. Always got to work the angle that’ll generate the most clicks you know. People already hated her and this is just more fuel for the fire.

      If these quotes from various sources etc., are in fact coming from her PR then they’re even more inept and clueless than I originally thought.

    • pafakell says:

      You are so right when you say there is no proof she is playing the victim but there is plenty of proof that other people are. They are the ones who never liked her to begin with and they are acting as if she did this to them. Gleefully I might add. Talk about hypocrisy.

  37. TheOriginalKitten says:

    ‘The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.’

    This is a great quote, but just because Rob may forgive her, it doesn’t mean he forgets what she did and personally, I don’t think he SHOULD forget. I know I wouldn’t if I were him.

    • geekychick says:

      THAT is one great quote. Although, I’ll always admit I’m too weak. Even worse, I can forgive, but I can never, ever forget. Cross me once, and I’ll always remember it.

      Yeah, forgiving is great, but you can’t MAKE people forgive you. Especially not by quoting Gandhi on Radar. But then again, I think Radar and the others are running BS stories bc clicks matter the most! ;)

  38. Gretchen says:

    Yeah, I’m not sure this was the situation Gandhi had in mind….
    He was talking about uniting and bringing peace to a country torn apart by almost 100 years of oppressive foreign occupation and nationalist unity divided by religious and political factions through non-violent actions….

    not boning your director in the back seat of your car.

    Maybe a more useful Gandhi quote for her is “my life is my message”, ie if you want to be a serious actress, BE A SERIOUS ACTRESS, don’t screw around with your married director and do your job-like no more shirking promotional tour duties. Oh and get a decent PR team.

  39. LadyBird83 says:

    Here’s the deal. When I was 23 I had an affair with a man who was in a serious relationship, I was single at the time.( They are now married) He flirted, came onto me all the time, complained about his girlfriend and led me to believe he was so unhappy and wanted out. Yes I made the decision to kiss him first. After 2 years of flirtation I was curious. In the end we had sex twice, then I moved out of state. I was crazy about him, even loved him in that weird “I want what I can’t have way” I got over it but I took a year of crying, guilt & depression.

    3 year later I moved back, he was married and guess what he still tried to get with me! By that time I had met my husband and was in love. And there is no way in hell I would ever cheat on my man. I’m sure Mr. Married went on to cheat with others, all the while his wife lives in denial and thinks her hot husband is great.

    The moral is happy people don’t cheat. If you are in love and all your needs are being met then you don’t go elsewhere! If they aren’t get in couple therapy and try to work it out. If it’s bad or your bored GET OUT. Don’t hurt anyone. Trust me if you dump someone and tell them you met someone else they won’t be as mad as if you dump them and tell them you fucked someone else.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      The other moral of the story. You had sex twice. You stopped. You left. You didn’t go out and make out with him publicly where you knew you would be photographed and the whole world would know. You didn’t publicly humiliate the other woman and you were not cheating on your own relationship and thus publicly humiliating your man.

      Kristen did more than have sex with a guy once or twice. She flaunted it.

  40. geekychick says:

    That Radar story was there in the morning, but I couldn’t find it an hour ago. But then, I don’t believe absolutely anything if it ain’t from an interview, rep or People.
    I stil stand by my opinion: she is guilty for cheating on Sparkles, but were it anything else than movie industry, it’d be his head on the line. He was her boss, period.

  41. trish says:

    Geeky, Im with you, all the people here believing this story just to hate on Kristen even more, she hasn’t said anything since the apology, wait for TIFF and maybe she’ll do an interview, even then I doubt she would play the victim card.

    • meg says:

      Whether Kristen said these things (the Gandhi quote, the manipulation claim etc) or not is almost beside the point. At best, she has allowed her PR team to orchestrate a “it’s not my fault, Rob and Rup are the bad guys” campaign. That alone is revolting and worthy of condemnation. If she had any self respect, not to mention intelligence, she’d order them to back off. Really, has she not done enough damage already?

    • mia girl says:

      trish – I can appreciate what you are saying, but here is proof to me that Kristen and those around her believe she is a victim/and are pushing that angle.

      When Jodie Foster wrote that sympathy / child actor Stewart piece, Jules Stewart, Kristen’s mother tweeted: “Bravo To Jody Foster. A woman we can all look up to”.

      • geekychick says:

        IDK, if my child was suffering so hard, I could see how Foster’s article would resonate with me as finally, someone trying to stop the vilification. The article HAS some good points re:celebrity culture, and what I got from that article was that celebrities are people and that tabloid BS can hurt them significantly and that it can totally disrupt their creative talent.I didn’t read it as an excuse for her actions, rather as a plea as not to vilify people we don’t actually know. BUT, if I was her mom, I’d put her under my watch, cancel all of the PR team and planning and encourage her to focus on herself, damn all those movies and tabloids and such.

  42. RuddyZooKeeper says:

    There’s a cutesie little Girl Next Door, a bossy sort who plays with my two boys. One day the house too quiet. A quick survey of the cul-de-sac and I see they’re out with Girl. No sooner am I comfortable at home than they return sobbing. They’d been in a fist fight (??!!) and sent home by Girl’s father. I’m mortified. And freaking mad.

    Their feeble attempt to escape my wrath and punishment: “She MADE us do it!” She “forced” them to sneak out of the house. She “made” them punch each other while she watched. Indeed!

    While I actually have no doubt Girl takes twisted pleasure in manipulating (she’s quite the puppet master), there’s no way I could let them scapegoat her for THEIR stupid decisions. So what if she’s rotten? That makes it all the more shameful–that they know what’s right, have strength and tools to do it, and still choose otherwise. Is Girl’s attention more important than your own brother? Than anything or anyone else? Than yourself? My answer to them: “You know better!”

    I guess the comparison is a stretch. But I still lecture my kids about what they tried to pull that day because of what I see in KStew and adult idiots like her. I think blamers, buck passers, and excuse makers are disgusting liars. Peer pressure? Manipulation? Blackmail? Put any fancy name on it you like. What it comes down to is that you made a choice that goes against what you know to be right and true and good. It’s a lie to say someone else made that decision for you.

    Kristen’s blame-game tactics and excuses make her look about as mature as my kids, and just as believable.

  43. eb says:

    Ha ha. Everything that US Weekly writes is the truth.

    Ditto for Radaronline.

    And while this is just another example of some Hollywood famous person experiencing a real human life, loss and all, I remember the shitstorm that engulfed my 22nd year of life and I find myself feeling for this actress.

    Granted it was something different, but suffice to say I took a really big bite out of life and choked on it. And I’m not a stupid person, or even an arrogant one. Just trying to maximize my potential without understanding the frailties of being human. I understand better now.

    So, how can I square up my choices with hers. Well. As much as people can know better, or think they do, nothing teaches knowing better than experience.

    People speculate on how the two cheaters ended up together. She pursued him. He pursued her. No one knows. But people lie to themselves all the time. When they see something they like or they want, they can turn a blind eye to the other part of that same picture. Parts that scare them or that they don’t understand.

    Pursuit from a charming but unsuitable corner can be easily renamed “friendship” and allowed to prowl closer. At her age, one is still learning the world. Not yet cynical. In her head she could be saying, I’m sick for thinking he likes me. He’s just being nice. This is what true adult friendship looks like. I just have only been friends with kids.

    Also, if it was the other way around. She could also think in her head. I just really like him and find him intellectual and creative. I’m not sexually attracted to him. It must be some silly crush. I can learn a lot from him. I just need to be there to do it. I just need to focus.

    In these examples one person is overestimating the intellectual side of themselves and not looking at or even understanding the animal instincts part of them.

    Committed women who understand the animal side, the power of sexual attraction, remove themselves from these kinds of situations. They know sexual attraction can blow up with people they would not want being the father of their children. They know that it is fleeting mostly. That a relationship is a bond they formed with another that is rooted in more than sex and has to be protected sometimes even from the animal side of themselves.

    Kristen Stewart may not fully understand the animal side of herself. It is possible she slipped her way into this inappropriate relationship and was trying to figure out what she was doing there.

    Does it mean that she didn’t love Robert Pattinson. I don’t know. I don’t see it, because it is something I can’t fathom doing. But another thing I know well is that people are built differently. People come to understand things differently. Some are more sensitive than others. Some more daring etc. Some more absolute. Some more tolerant. And these kinds of differences lead to marked different behavior. Different ways of learning. However she is built it was a way that led her into this situation. Now she knows more about herself and can make better decisions in the future.

    As for the relationship she betrayed. That too is governed by animal instincts. Namely the aversion to pain. Robert Pattinson would have to be built a certain way to even contemplate allowing her around him. If he is then she has a shot at trying to make him understand. But the longer things go split the less likely they will heal. At this point in time. The bond looks tortured and near death. I feel for them. This story of theirs is so common. I see it all the time. People still learning about life and themselves and limits making mistakes and hurting the ones they love. Sometimes irreparably.

    Here’s wishing well to all the learning humans out there. May we not screw up too badly that which makes life worth living.

  46. mel says:

    Viciously attacking a 22 year old – who yes…deserves some of what she is getting – but its really hypocritical of a lot of people on here who support in spades other celebs who have played a part in splitting apart plenty of marriages. Who are cheaters – who are old enough to know better. Does it somehow make you feel better about your own life – do you feel “better” than her – you can judge her even though you do not even know her or even what exactly happened. US magazine in not the bible of all what happens to celebs. Taking every word they say so seriously speaks volumes about your judgement on what you read.

    • evyn says:

      I think that with some of the other celebs it was more or less heresay. Since none of us were there, we can’t say for certain what the truth is. She was photographed in the act of cheating, just like Sienna Miller, who saw similar backlash.
      This reminds me of Hugh Grant. Sure a lot of celebs hire hookers, but they were never busted so publicly.

    • anon33 says:

      At what age, then, should someone take responsibility for their actions???? 30? 40? Never??

      In that regard, do you think that people should wait to have kids until after age 22? Seeing as how a 22 year old apparently shouldn’t be held responsible for any of their own actions???

      Seriously, you say “attacking a 22-year old” as if she were 10 or 12.

      Also, I don’t know how many times this has to be said-this is a FUN GOSSIP blog. We all know that this stuff may or may not be true but we have fun discussing the possibilities. OF COURSE I don’t believe everything I read in USweekly, or even Cnn.com for that matter. It’s really not that serious.

  49. Feebee says:

    To be clear I’m not team anyone here… but as an idea (discounting any spin that’s being put on it) is it really unbelieveable that a 40-something married director ‘pursued’ his 22 year old leading lady? For all the wailing about her age and her previously documented attitude, is it really a stetch to believe it may be true in some form? And yet Mr Director’s public backlash is minimal while the actress is wondering where the bonfire and stake is being set up.

  50. CamColty says:

    Yes, he pursued her, but she stopped and allowed him into her pants. Not once. Not twice. But repeatedly until their tryst was exposed. So, please stop with the nonsense that she is not responsible for her actions. She’s not a victim. She’s a whiny, entitled brat who is going through a rough spot because of her lack in judgment. Because she thought she could do whatever she wanted, regardless of who it might hurt.

  54. TriedTru says:

    Oh this twit! I swear, she is the worst thing to happen to women in a long time. Just own it! Stop playing the helpless weak female victim because you got caught. KStew, you are setting women back decades! Yes, people can be victims but this was not a savage attack or violation – she was a willing participant. When someone plays this card undeservingly, it makes all the other times when women truly have been victimized become trivial and fall into question. I can’t believe that her team (or her for that matter) think this is ok.

    • Crystal says:

      ‘she is the worst thing to happen to women in a long time.’

      ‘KStew, you are setting women back decades!’

      Of all the ratchet broads in Hollywood, Kristen is the worst thing to happen to us and is setting us back decades?

      Well, you tried.
      Go sell crazy somewhere else please, unfortunately we’re all stocked up here.

      • TriedTru says:

        Hmmm, so you don’t think this is highly detrimental to her adoring fans (many of whom are young impressionable girls)? Look, I get that you may not think she’s harmful – I think she is. Either way, I don’t really see that as “selling crazy”.

        In the end, she teriible for a lot of reasons but the one that irks me the most is playing the weak defenseless victm when she clearly is not. What message does that send to other girls and the twi-hard fans who embrace her?

      • Crystal says:

        @Triedtru

        ‘so you don’t think this is highly detrimental to her adoring fans (many of whom are young impressionable girls)?’

        She did a shitty thing, is annoying as f*ck and can’t act her way out of a wet paper bag but she doesn’t owe her fans anything imo (if your taste is bad enough for you to stan for her in the first place then you already have problems tbh). I think that celebs have to take responsibility for their actions but I don’t expect them to be role models because no one is perfect. I also don’t have young kids so maybe I don’t get it and my opinion doesn’t really matter. I would be fine the whole ‘role model’ thing if the pressure wasn’t on the K-Stew’s and Vanessa Hudgens’ of the business to set a good example whilst Shia La Douche and John Mayer get no flack even though they are walking definitions of the word asshole. If young girls need good role models then so do the boys and so far both sides are lacking ANY role models these days.
        How is this detrimental to her fans ??? Serious question. I’m interested in how that works. Will they all cheat on their boyfriends with married men now that their idol did it??? I don’t get it.

        ‘…playing the weak defenseless victm when she clearly is not. What message does that send to other girls and the twi-hard fans who embrace her? ‘

        I agree tbh. Her playing the victim is not a good look and drag this scandal on for longer. As for the young girls who embrace her?? Well they are the same girls who embrace the misogynistic tripe that is the Twilight books and the same girls who look up to Bella ‘Mary-Sue’ Swan even though she is a doormat who is emotionally, literally and figuratively dependent on her vampire boyfriend. Looking up to a cheater isn’t that far off from looking up to one of the most pathetic female characters in literature and tbh, most of her fans see Kristen and Bella as interchangeable anyway.

        Btw what about the influence this scandal will have on boys/men? If this scandal shows girls that they can play the ‘depressed victim’ card then isn’t it also showing boys that it’s not a big deal if they cheat because the women gets all the flack anyway ??? Just wondering…

      Agree, Stewart is a terrible role model. She’s almost at bad as those horrible Twilight books. What a pile of crap to feed our daughters.

  55. Diana says:

    So it’s everyone’s fault except hers. It’s The scumbag’s fault, AKA Sanders, for “relentlessly persuing” her and “manipulating” her, it’s Rob’s fault because if he doesn’t forgive her, than he’s weak. Come on! grow up! and also don’t treat the public like mindless morons; so now she pretends she hasn’t sold herself as a badass with a mind of her own all this years, no, that magically desapears due to the evil powers of big bad director. Puh-lease!

  56. Chatcat says:

    Oh KLewd … please STOP!

    You need to embrace that you are a total home wrecking, finger flipping, lip chewing, untalented Bitch. Own it and market what comes so naturally to you to the world. It can’t be any worst on you then it is now AND you can fire your sorry ass PR team that spews such ridiculousness that not even your prepuesent fanbase buys into anyway. The money you then save you can buy a car that actually can accomodate you and the next philanderer more comfortably and spring for tinted windows!

  57. Dani says:

    All I’m getting out of all of her stories is ‘pity party pity party pity party!’At this point it’s just classless of her and her people to keep blabbing.

    Gandhi is probably rolling around in his grave right now.

  58. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    OH MY GOD! Poor Kristen! Such an innocent little girl! Rupert was being manipulative and pursuing her! She fell into his trap! *baaaaarf* Team Kristen, just shut it! She is a freakin’ 22 years old and you say Rupert manipulated her? I totally agree with Kaiser. It takes two to tango. Kristen should just stop blaming others and own it and move on. Have some guts and face the music.

  59. Janet says:

    So here we go with another chapter in the neverending saga of The Infantilization of Kristen Stewart.

    Pooooor Kristen. Innocent child who never knew what she was getting into. Pursued and taken advantage of by a married scumbag, and driven into a decline by her heartless ex-boyfriend who refuses to man up and forgive her.

    God, this bitch makes me want to backhand her across the face. Every damn thing is somebody else’s fault. Sanders is to blame because he got her into this mess. Pattinson is to blame because he won’t get her out of it. What’s she going to blame Liberty Ross for? Tune in tomorrow to find out.

    • Jennifer12 says:

      Not just yes to this- HELL, YES. Throughout the piece, after she blames Rupert for stalking her and practically sexually assaulting her, it was Rob’s fault for not being understanding and forgiving and after that it was the concern over her career (the one that she’s too badass to care about, ostensibly) and how it would affect her-her-her. She’s not Bella Swan; as she always says, she is playing a part. She is Kristen Stewart: selfish, entitled, spoiled and blaming everyone else for her errors. Perhaps she will call out Rupert’s kids next? The ones she was taking out for ice cream before the scandal? Rupert must have his mouth hanging open- the girl he lusted after and did in a Mini-Cooper is branding him a filthy old man who coerced her into a sexual affair. That’s what he gave up his family for; karma’s a bitch, huh, Rupert? Almost as big a bitch as Kristen is in real life.

  60. Booboocita says:

    The weirdest aspect of this mess is the contrast her falling-apart-victim persona makes with the article about her in June’s Vanity Fair, which was all about her “insane confidence,” her almost preternatural poise and maturity, her high intelligence and energy, blah blah blah. Granted, VF’s profiles are nothing if not fawning, but the article was so over-the-top gushing, so insistent about her fearlessness and brilliance, that this more recent news about her being close to nervous collapse and attempts to connect with her spirituality make no sense. No-one turns on a dime like that, not even after a major emotional upset. I’m not likely to believe anything that comes out of that young woman’s mouth or from her representatives ever again.

  61. Chrissie says:

    So…I’m pretty sure they had sex. If she was comfortable enough to let him go down on her in a car after she went to the gym, I’m sure she had been sleeping with him for awhile.

  62. Bored suburbanhousewife says:

    No one is talking about the most hilariously implausible part of the story. You see, she is not crying, eating raw cookie dough, slugging vodka from the bottle & lip syncing to “All by Myself” like Renee Zellweger in Bridget Jones Diary.

    Nope, KStew, taking Hermione Grainger as her role model, has been studiously spending her exile reading A BIOGRAPHY AND THE WRITINGS Of GANDHI!

    Bwwwaaaaaahaaaaahaha!

    Has she ever said or done ANYTHING that would suggest she is a well read or well educated person? A serious intellectual woman of letters?

    Please, this is more of her pre-scandal poseur twaddle.

    Similarly the whole only weak people can’t forgive bs seems not so much directed at Rob but more toward the public, again consistent with her pre scandal bird flipping, f off attitude.

    Notice also the tenor of piece is not broken hearted over Rob, it is worried about her career.

  63. renata says:

    This spin is so lame I’m not certain I believe it’s actually coming from Stewart’s own team. ‘Blame him not me’, is so NOT the way to go. It translates into a month ago her being willing to throw everything away just to fiddle with Rupdong, now she’s content with totally throwing him under the bus. It’s just too bizarre and makes Stew come off even worse as it depicts her as someone who shows no faith to anyone in this story, other than herself! Liberty must be laughing her head off at Stewart beating up Rupert for her — if it’s not Liberty’s team that are floating these stories to being with, which could definitely be a possibility.

    Plus now MAHATMA STEWART???? — It sounds like a department at Kmart. Are they kidding? I can see it now — the Hollywood film of the Story Of Stew, starring Ben Kingsley as her Stew-ness :)

    Sounds to me like they’re already trying to set-up the get back together of Stew and RPatz for the Breaking Dawn promo. These people are goofy enough to try it, but it will never last past the day that promo ends. I think Pattinson has shown himself to be way too slick at handling all of this to get back together with her, which would definitely make him look a lot weaker than he’s coming off right now. It’s funny, but I didn’t expect Patz to be sitting so pretty out of all of this, but so much has worked in his favor.

  64. Isa says:

    How did she never get their names mixed up?!? Rupert – Robert. I get confused.
    Also I’m sick of her or her team blaming him. Quit trying to throw him under the bus. You’re to blame too! It’s pretty easy to not cheat and turn a guy down. For instance you don’t go pick him up for a make out session.
    And I highly doubt they didn’t sleep together. Especially of he really go down on her in a public place (I saw the picture but I’m not sure of that’s what he’s really doing) Im just assuming of course.

  65. Em12 says:

    Referencing that Gandhi quote is disgusting. Riiiight, Kristen because Rob’s obviously a jerk and weak-minded if he doesn’t forgive you. That just, once again, reinforces the idea that she’s a victim as opposed to in any way responsible for this situation. I really hope I wasn’t that dumb and narcissistic at 22… or ever.

  66. skuddles says:

    I have to say I tend to believe the part about Rupert pursuing her initially. I was on the receiving end of many older men’s advances when I was her age – it was like some sort of freaky Lolita affliction. I sincerely doubt she was entirely blameless though – sure she flirted and gave off signals and was flattered by the attention.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      I think this happens to most young women. I used to tell older (30+) men, “my mom is single”. That totally turned them off. I was younger than Kristen (18-20ish) when this constant unwanted attention happened but I knew right from wrong. I also wasn’t interested in anyone over 30. Let alone someone MARRIED.

  67. ViloDeMenus says:

    At any other place of employment Rupert Sanders would have been fired for putting the company at risk. A much older more worldly man, in a position of authority would have opened up a reasonable cause for a lawsuit.

    Here’s the deal, he should never have done what he did, he knew better, he was married and had children. He was much older, he knew better. He was her boss no matter how you cut it, that creates an unfair situation, he knew better. She could have said no, but he created an atmosphere where he had more power than she did, he knew better.

    He’s a scumbag and doesn’t deserve to have another job where he can take advantage of younger women, he certainly doesn’t deserve his wife, who he shamed by his actions. I believe it’s rather unfair to judge the younger person with far less experience in life for something like this. He knew better.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      In a NORMAL situation this would be sexual harassment. In a NORMAL situation the older man (person) has the most power. This would be huge HR incident. The studio I worked for was big on HR incidents. They had HR people on sets. I’m sure it was all taken care of quietly.

      This is NOT a NORMAL situation. This is not even a NORMAL “Hollywood” situation. This is not Michael Bay asking an unknown young woman to wash his Ferrari in Daisy Dukes. This is a lot more serious and egregious were she unknown and pressured. Mr. Bay is former employee of my former employer – wonder why? Rupert was not a name. He is no Michael Bay for better or worse.

      If Kristen objected to his behavior she could have had him fired. She had the power in this situation, not him. She was the established name (well she, Charlize and Chris). If she could not work with him due to this constant pursuit and manipulation – they would have gotten rid of him. I’ll be crude… she is going to put butt$ in the $eats. Not Rupert.

      Not to mention that she claims this did not happen while she was on the set but afterward. There was no pressure there. If he wouldn’t leave her alone she could have gotten her people to talk to the studio about getting rid of him for any sequels. If he did not show up to the premiere would we have noticed? Did we notice if he did?

      Yes, Rupert is a pig. Yes, his behavior is reprehensible. Yes, Liberty and her children deserve better as did Robert to a lesser degree; but Kristen could have said no. She chose not to and now she is playing the victim. She is an immoral idiot and crying like a little girl. She is a grown woman. Act like one.

      • pafakell says:

        I agree. I don’t think RS sexually harassed KS, but I do think the hate and vitriol and constant gleeful self-righteous judgement against her, all totally out of proportion to what she actually did, hit her like a brick wall. Under those circumstances she certainly may have come to feel like a victim. Assuming this gossip is true (which I don’t), she may have come to think that Rubert, being the much older and more experienced person, should have known this could happen. She may feel especially regretful of her losses if to her this “relationship” was just a test of her attractiveness to a man she admired for his creativity, directing style, and/or his personality. Maybe they felt a bond during the filming of SWATH. Who knows? They both probably compartmentalized their “other, real” life and neither of them thought they would lose what they did.

      • bb says:

        Rupert didn’t harass her, she has her hands lovingly entwined with his hands, his leg is between hers , no resistance there and her hand in his hair and looking happy and content, doesn’t show any wrong doing from Rupert. The pics in the car where she willingly let him roam her body , I can’t see anything than her eager participation. She knew what she is doing, while kissing and holding his head in her hands. Maybe she will hang with the old guy after he gets divorced and she can be the kids stepmom

    • Jennifer12 says:

      The thing is? The movie was long over. They were no longer working together. And she met up with him and drove around with him and looked for spots to make out and hang out. She is not a victim, as much as she tries to make herself one. BOTH of them cheated, and while it’s worse when you have kids, you still don’t cheat on a partner you’re committed to and living with. Kristen is younger, but she’s an adult who did what she wanted when she wanted to, and got caught. And since she’s famous (though she pretends not to care) and in big films and posing for fashion houses, she’s more visible. She’s not a child and she wasn’t taken advantage of. She was even taking his kids out for ice cream before the story broke. Rob has been gracious and kind and not taken the zillion hints to insult her. And she thanks him by throwing HIM under the bus and saying how he just isn’t strong enough to forgive? My GOD, this pretentious, spoiled brat.

  68. InNycAndInLove says:

    Listen, I usually dont care about stuff like this but she did something bad, so do the other guy. Should she be treated less than him? no. it takes two. but maybe now she will appreciate her fame and the fans who go out to see her movies instead of acting like a pissed off brat.

  69. Kosmos says:

    To Amelia (above)….WELL said !! My exact feelings….

  70. Little Red says:

    I wonder if her team is consulting Dina Lohan.

  71. Madison says:

    When a man you know is married with a family pursues you, you do the right thing and say no, that’s if you have any morals.

  72. HME says:

    I can’t believe what a mess Kstew’s people are making of this whole thing!! And to imply that Rob is being weak for not forgiving her? How low is that? Especially after how gracious he’s been during his promo tour thus far. He could have EASILY thrown Kristen under the bus but he didn’t.
    I wonder if her genius PR has even thought how dumb this insistance that it wasn’t really an affair (just a ‘momentary indiscretion’ and that they never actually had sex) is going to look if Liberty files for divorce, which is looking more and more likely at this point. Marriages don’t tend to end over a ‘momentary indiscretion’.

  73. Mouse says:

    HOW much more pretentious and immature can this brat get? A couple of months ago, she was complaining about nothing bad happening to her and how confident she is, and now she’s wallowing in self-pity eating ice cream and reading Gandhi?!

    Whether or not he pursued you, you still could have chosen to tell the married man to eff off. But you didn’t, so stop whining and take what’s coming to you-you earned the skank label. This is why kids should have to go through high school, for the socialization. You get this petty cheating crap out of your system before you’re supposed to be a functioning adult.

  74. storyteller says:

    She made her bed, now she has to lie in it. Sorry. I’m not a fan of excuse-making, especially when relationships, marriages and children are involved. Trampire t-shirt? Oh well. If that sounds cold, remember this is the same girl who was desperate for something to f*ck her over, who had a care-a-damn attitude about everything and apparently everyone. Be careful what you wish for Kristen, you might just get it.

  75. Faye says:

    Sorry my comment is below, my computer stopped me from commenting lol!

  76. Faye says:

    Completely agree storyteller!

    At first I got to be honest I felt a little sorry for her, until I heard she said the below:

    ‘I want someone to f**k me over…’
    Be careful what you wish for! Pompous b**ch.
    I believe she wanted this to happen, why say this otherwise? I don’t know anyone as smug as this to say ‘my life’s perfect so someone do something bad to me to make me feel alive!’.
    Messed up! No sympathy from me…

  77. Francesca says:

    I believe her in the bird pic; she is that girl: privileged, angry, closed off. She is only interested in herself because she is totally insecure and knows KNOWS she fading fast, 15 mins ago, however you want to say it. She is melting…and we don’t care.

    Rob’s not mad? This I doubt. I bet he is furious. She humiliated him. There is no coming back from that for a guy.

    And she totally did the deed, over and over with the old guy.

  78. ZenB!tch says:

    *Kristen Stewart’s team insists that ‘manipulative’ Rupert Sanders pursued her*

    And he was soooooo irresistible she couldn’t say no? Hello? This is why I am slut-shaming her now. She is taking ZERO responsibility. Half of the responsibility is hers. It takes two to tango as they say and she is taking none. This did not happen once in a back room. They met publicly. Sorry but she is a responsible as Rupert. Twenty-two is not sixteen.

  79. erika says:

    . GIRL, DO NOT INVOKE THE MAHATMA’S GOOD NAME IN YOUR STUPID TWIHARD SCANDAL.

    thank YOU! my God, the suffering of indians in british ruled india far surpasses your kitty cat making friends w/ rupert.

    and, here’s my FINGER right back at ya’ biotch! so sick of her dead eyes, look of disgust at the very people who love her and from where she makes HER money!

  80. hmmmm says:

    wow has the world gone crazy? I just don’t understand the complete hatred for this girl. Yeah, she did a stupid, stupid mistake but it’s hard to see people sitting on a mighty throne judging her and throwing insults and stones even after she has apologized. It’s gotten to the point where all these nonstop horrible comments make Kristen look more human and thus a better person than the actual person posting such venom. Guess what? People are human and make mistakes. ALL. THE. TIME. We forgive if someone is remorseful and we give them a chance to better themselves. Why can’t she get the same chance? Forget about Robert Pattinson for a minute … I don’t care what he does because it’s not my relationship but I really hate everybody casting stone after stone and not letting up. I am not a Kristen fan, and I detest cheating but for crying out loud all she has endured has me pulling for her. So, she’s not perfect, who is?

    I feel sorry for Rupert’s wife, especially the kids, but everybody makes it seem like she just shot a baby in cold blood. She was caught kissing and hugging a married man who seems like a pervert (he’s almost twice her age!). They were caught kissing …. they weren’t naked nor did they make a sex tape. She cheated on her boyfriend which is wrong but hey she wasn’t engaged, married, or with kids. God help her if she had.

    It’s time to move on and get a grip! She’s 22 years old and I hope she learned from this and she comes out to be a better person and I really hope she stops with her middle finger antics because that just doesn’t look cool.

    JMO

    • bb says:

      People don’t like her anymore because she pretended to be a total different person , meanwhile all whats left over, from that cool rebellious chick is a horny uneducated Hollywood product. From her apology to her appearance all screams victim, give me a break, keep your legs close be happy with the life you have , if it’s not good enough, go back to school or start some charity, You wanted life to fack you over? well you helped out yourself

  81. stinky says:

    shouldnt she just be a model instead of acting?? she gives great face! but really doesnt bring it on screen, does she? im looking forward to OnThe Road…. for sure. im not a hater. just sayin. YAWNS for her. OTR better be kickass, or there will be trouble……….

  82. d says:

    Dear Kristen: fire your PR now and hire some better people. Because this sounds like crap from a bunch of clueless 20-year olds. Suck it up, own up to your mistakes, be short and sweet about it, and then move the F** on. This Ghandi stuff is embarrassing. I am embarrassed for you. Just stop already.

  83. lower-case deb says:

    amazing. that gandhi quote is an amazing feat by whoever thought it up. seriously, please consider getting a new pr team.

    i thought i’ve read it all when they started blaming liberty with the “two to tango in a breakup of a marriage”

    now they’re blaming rpatz (or whoever) for not forgiving her quick enough?

    NOW i’ve read it all.

  84. wonderlust says:

    you know what? I think if I ever got close enough I would just smack the crap out of her. Just backhand one good time to wipe the smirk off her face. I wouldn’t mind going to jail. lol I am not even a fan of all that twilight stuff but this girl doesn’t know suffering she is just some self righteous brat. Alas, I just know that her people would spin the story and I would be murdered by some Twihard.

  85. aquarius64 says:

    @pafakell – another Stewart apologist, making excuses for her bad behavior. She’s hurt a lot of people (personally and professionally) and she has to answer for it, if she still wants a career.

  86. LittleDeadGirl says:

    For someone who claims to be so anti Hollywood she is going to every popular PR move. This is the ever classical move to suddenly go spiritual or philosophical. Don’t become religious, that’s too controversial, but everyone agrees Gandhi is good so every star and their grandmother reads Gandhi at bedtime.

  87. Tonia says:

    It’s all “Hollywood”….it’s a money making publicity stunt. Really, Kristen and Rob are followed everywhere by the Pappz…Kristen supposedly cheated in the wide open not thinking that she was being followed and pics wouldn’t surface. Listen…The Studio and Big Wigs know exactly what they are doing to get the max amount of money out of the last movie and the stars. Hey, it doesn’t matter if it’s good or bad as long as the attention is there! They had to do a big renegotiating of contract’s after the first movie with taylor, rob and Kristen.

    You know what? Maybe they really are not a couple, but they can’t be with anyone else in the public until it’s all over with. Seriously, that could have been apart of the new contracts to be exclusive until…It just seems a little odd that Kristen had a boyfriend before Rob that she didn’t mind showing PDA, but then Rob and her being a couple and she doesn’t like PDA!?! Previous boyfriend pic’s with hand holding, piggy back rides, hugging, kissing, laying on blankets at concerts and even smoking weed together. POOF!!! One night Rob and Kristen was a couple…Oh….we never really knew if they were or weren’t, did we? Rob keeps telling everyone that he doesn’t want to sell his relationships or private life, well that’s alot of stress when high profile people hide when they can’t. Remember, it was all on the Twi-hard’s speculation or need for them to be a couple like Edward and Bella. The Exec’s jumped at Bella/Edward couple transfer to the Rob/Kristen couple by the Twi-hards. They even helped that along with placing Rob’s Remember Me co-star as a girlfriend. Oh please…Then supposedly the jealous issue between Kristen and Nikki because of Rob seeing Nikki before he started to see Kristen, even though, Kristen had a boyfriend before too. Stir the drama…Does anyone else see this?

    Really, all this is a publicity hype and I believe it has become an unhappy one for several of them. I’m sure that everyone will be happy when it’s all over with. I just wish that the horrible comments that have been would have been thought out before said. It’s all ACTING and BUSINESS…
