The Sun: Robert Pattinson dumped Kristen Stewart this past weekend

Go to the Twihard closest to you and give them a big hug today. It’s going to be a rough day for them. The Sun (the UK tabloid which is often outright wrong) claims today that Robert Pattinson has dumped Kristen Stewart. I’m sure the Twihards want their #TwihardProof and #receipts but even if this comes from The Sun, it’s being picked up by more legit outlets, so Twihards are probably going to be on their laptops all day, putting out Twihard Fires. Just FYI: if this report has any truth, I want to give Rob a big hug because he finally grew a set. Mazel tov!

ROBERT Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have split up for the second time — just months after getting back together, The Sun can reveal.

The Twilight couple’s four-year relationship first hit a rocky patch in July when Kristen, 22, had an affair with married 42-year-old film director Rupert Sanders.

They reunited in September and attended November’s premieres of final vampire film Breaking Dawn, Part 2. But R-Patz called it off again after a difficult festive period together.

The heartbroken Brit, 26, broke the news to his ex at the weekend, telling her they would be better off as friends.

A source said: “She flew to LA and was supposed to be Rob’s date for the Golden Globes, but he told her he wants to cool it off. He loves her but would rather go back to being good friends so they can rebuild their trust and focus on work after Twilight. Kristen’s upset but understands. She shouldn’t have pushed him to reconcile after her infidelity. She’s hoping he’ll come round and time will be a great healer.”

Rob’s friends and family in London had given him a hard time about taking back the stunning actress — who is one of Hollywood’s biggest earners.

The source added: “He was getting so much pressure to ditch her. His friends told him to focus on his career and said she was wrecking his chances.”

R-Patz is planning to stay in his LA home while Kristen is moving to New York to make a fresh start. An insider said: “She feels people leave her alone there and she has a bit more peace.”

[From The Sun]

As we discussed yesterday, Kristen did come out on Golden Globe night – she went to an after-party at the Soho House and met up with Robert. But I really was surprised that she didn’t join him at the actual Globes, so perhaps this is a “Make a Tabloid Story” out of the fact that they weren’t joined at the hip. Or maybe he really is in the process of dumping her – he’s due to start work in Australia soon, isn’t he? And there’s been a lot of rumors that he’s told Kristen not to visit him on set. So we could be witnessing a slow-motion breakup, or “cooling off” where Rob is like “let’s spend more time apart, see how we feel about that.”

    Urgh, ‘single’, ‘dating’, can this pair just please go away already?
    (Sorry, they really grate on me)

  2. serena says:

    I hope this is true and he grew a was time he did it.

  3. Amelia says:

    Firstly – this is from The Sun. Whose articles are more like short stories than they are products of journalism.
    Secondly – the Daily Fail were reporting this also, and I’m beginning to wonder if their articles are written by the work experience kid.
    Thirdly – . . . I sort of called this yesterday :P But they’ve ommitted Kristen eloping to Bali with Jodie Foster and the Lutzy fireworks.

    So as much as I would love to sit back and watch the Twi-pocalypse from my bunker, I don’t think it’s happened.

    • Kim says:

      ITA As a fan of Brad and Angelina I know 99% of the stories in The Sun about them are false example AJ bought Brad a waterfall,helicopter,Brad bought a house in UK,Angie doing movie with Danny Boyle,Brad and Angie hosting Olympics party…I don’tbelieve anything printed in that rag about any celebrity.

    • Ann says:

      Totally agree.

      Not sure why anyone expected her to accompany him to the GGs. First, presenters do not normally get plus ones, due to space limitations. And they’ve never attended these kinds of events together anyway.

      The other red flag to me is the part about her moving to New York. I call BS right there. Her family and all her friends are in LA, the movie business is based in LA – what on earth would she move to New York for?

      AS everyone noted, the Sun is notoriously unreliable. Since he’s off to do a movie and there won’t be any sightings of them for awhile, it’s easy to print a breakup story and not worry about getting bagged if they show up together somewhere.

    • Viv says:

      Agree. I think she is just trying to fly under the radar.
      Unless she is forced to by a studio I don’t see her do any red carpet for a while. I bet Sparkles and his team welcome the undercover activities – better not to attract any more attention to his being whipped by a sullen philandering SnowWhite.

  4. LadyMTL says:

    Well, it would make sense if for no other reason than they have no more Twilight movies to promote.

  5. cecizahn says:

    I love Rob and I really hope that this is true. There are second chances that are not to be made, and Kstew was one of those.

  6. Bowers says:

    But their “relationship” is all made up.

  7. Melymori says:

    BS story….but I do hope he dumps her soon. Since he took her back, he no longer appeals to me and not because I want/dream something with him, but more like he gave his manhood away to kristen…

  8. poppy says:

    finally! they haven’t been getting enough pr lately.

  9. deb says:

    The day he grows a set is the day Hell freezes over.

  10. marie says:

    oh, I get it. she showed up all slobby to the afterparty to try and win him back? she lifted her armpit and thought he’d come running? well, that’s the first time she’s ever lost at the epic game of Smell My Sweat..

  11. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    I wish it was true.
    Ah the Sun is lying. If they had really broken up, Kristen wouldn’t have joined Rob at GG’s after-party. I read somewhere she came late around 1:30am in the morning/night and ran over to meet him. According to someone who was present at that party, Rob and Kristen stayed together for hours laughing and chatting.

    • mia girl says:

      You are probably right. But the report also said they left with a group of friends. These sightings are typically full of PDA info – and none this time… just something about “staying close” Hmmmm.

      I joked yesterday that KStew showing up so late at 1:30a to the second or third party that Pattinson was partying solo at reminded me so much of a “clinger” who used to do that to a friend of mine when he was out alone. Maybe I was not so far off… Maybe KStew is clinging to that last bit of hope…

      • Jess says:

        If their relationship was in any way healthy or grown up, they would have cut the BS and started showing up places together, as a couple, and not maybe according to “reports” meeting up at 2am with a massive group around them. It’s just getting so old how immature they are. I really am trying to be a fan of Rob, because I think he’s adorable and I loved Cosmopolis and want to see more, but he’s in such a juvenile silly relationship that has done some serious havoc on his image. It’s starting to really grate on my nerves.

  12. Nina W says:

    If this is true it makes me wonder if RP took her back just to try to protect her from all the backlash she got post-Mini-Cooper. If so, he must be a pretty nice guy and good friend.

    • Bored suburbanhousewife says:

      This! Way back in Kate July I and others speculated Rob would be too kind hearted to throw her under the bus but the “reconciliation” would quietly fizzle out after the BD hoopla right around this winter. Even if this particular Y
      Sun report is untrue, it’s inevitable.

  13. Perplexed says:

    The Sun was correct on Sept 16 when they announced Rob had taken her back and hardly anyone believed it.
    If true, I didn’t think it would happen quite so soon.
    And apparently HE called it off.
    Timing makes sense also as he has to leave for Australia.
    I guess we wait for something in People now?

  14. MsGoblin says:

    “Stunning actress”? Where?

  15. mln76 says:

    I have my doubts they were ever really a couple more likely friends who hookup on occasion who are together due to the publicity machine surrounding them. I think Pattison was pretty much trapped by the studio into taking her back as long as there were obligations for Twilight. Its easy to believe that they will part with no bad feelings because they are probably good friends.

  16. Annie says:

    Dvd comes out on March 2nd, just saying. No promo for it and they didn’t record commentary for it. They don’t have to wait ’til then unless they were asked to wait so it doesn’t affect sales.

    Sounds like it could be true. Him focusing on his career. I’d believe it. But it sounds too good for our little push over. Part of me thinks they forced them together for promo but with all the hugging with each others relatives…

  17. cynicalsmirk says:

    What a shocker :) Hadn’t everyone already figured this would be the way it played out?

  18. Kloops says:

    The contract is up. No surprises here.

  19. Jess says:

    According to twitter, Rob’s on the plane to Aus right now. He’ll be in the outback for 2 months, far far away from Hollywood and even Australian media. Kristen isn’t on the plane with him. If they were going to roll out a breakup to the presses, now would be the perfect time. They’re far far away from each other, and by the time Rob gets back, or goes straight to England or Morocco to film is next project, people will have moved on. If I’m their PR person, and they were staying together out of convenience and for ease in the BD promo, NOW would be the perfect time to start rolling out the split.

    • Annie says:

      Agreed and you know SHE is the one more desperate to make things seem like they’re perfect, so if she’s not on the plane it was not her decision. If it were up to her there would be pics of them boarding together like always.

      Funny how that works, huh? Always paps when they’re together but nobody saw her leave alone to NY.

      • A says:

        Actually disagree. Now makes it look like it was all some major PR thing, in my opinion…It would have been way smarter to not release something until he had been away filming for a few months…Then people could make their own assumptions if she had not visited him, and they could release something to People how he and she could not get over the cheating.
        That said, I’m not sure I buy this. A) It’s The Sun. B) I know most people on here despise KStew, but I don’t see him releasing it to The Sun & letting them publish all these details like he think’s she’ll ruin his career blah blah….RPattz seems too classy for that, I could just seem him only saying the trust was too badly destroyed and he wants to focus on his career. c). Lastly, a lot of tabloids reported that they were together early Monday morning at some GG party…and The Sun says that they broke up this weekend. I think
        it is 50/50, but I usually wait until People or Gossip Cop says something.

      • Get a clue says:

        @A: People online had a little blurb about RPatz being a new bachelor. That even though KS showed up at the after after party, they really didn’t hang much and were pretty much doing their own thing. Who knows if it is true,

      • A says:

        @Getaclue. I read that blurb, and it was about him giving Tina Fey a rose and joking around. Also said they were together at the party…So it certainly didn’t seem to be implying they split. Shrug. Like I said, it is The Sun and the story seems to be to be very gossipy instead of a normal break-up PR release. Plus, the timing is bad…so they hooked up 2 months before BD2 released and broke up 2 months after. That screams PR, and while their PR teams are inept I doubt they are that inept. I’m thinking it will be a blurb in People in May.

        IMO, they are good friends and had an open relationship that would have long ago faded if it wasn’t for Twilight. So I won’t be surprised if they remain friends after they “break up”.

  20. Erandyn says:

    If by “grew a pair”, you mean “reached the end of their contractual obligation”…

  21. s says:

    they were never really back together in the first place. it was 100% publicity. It may even have been 100% publicity all along.

  22. Geekychic says:

    I know everyone will jump on me, but ain’t it modus operandi for her to join him at The afterparty of his events( premiere, presenting…So on). It’s not The first time. Kinda ashamed to know that, though.
    IDK, it seems to me that those who are all for PR-relationship kinda started reaching similar to Twihards lately. First it was: Wait after BD2 premiere, he’ll dump her! Then it was: no Xmas together, of course, his family hates her! But Then it turned out that they spent NYE together, and Twihards chimed in with The info that they Always spend time after Xmas together, Last few years. So nothing new Or out of ordinary. Just like the GG situation.
    Now both sides (I’m talking ’bout extremes) come off kinda… To invested

  23. Val5 says:

    this shitty soap-opera really needs to end..

  24. Melly Bee says:

    I will probably get crucified for this, but here goes. Robert and Kristen have NEVER dated. This was all just a way to sell tickets. Period. End of story. I also believe that Rob is gay, which, if true, the producers would want to make a fake relationship to sell tickets. It was just a ploy to get people into the seats. It has never been, nor will it ever be, a true relationship.

  25. Mirella says:

    I really hope this is true.

  26. Melissa says:

    Rob’s going to Australia it’s convenient for the tabs to say they have broken up. I would not be surprised to hear that Rob will evaluating his relationship with her. This year is critical to them. They will either stay together or break up.

    I bet Kristen will go to Australia, let’s say 2wks before filming ends. On twitter fans are already speculating she will fly down for Valentine’s Day. I don’t think so. Valentine’s Day is not a big deal. Only people who want it to be make it.

    • Annie says:

      There’s no reason for her to not tag along. She’s not working.

      • A says:

        But they never tagged along in the past, even when the other wasn’t filming, so who knows. Just think they would both realize hooking up 2 months before the film released and breaking up two months after would scream PR stunt. Plus, The Sun, not People or US…50/50 until its confirmed by People or Gossip Cop IMO.

      • honeybee says:

        I agree with you. With these break up stories it would make the reconciliation seem that much more PR motivated and I don’t think it will happen like that. The split will happen without them being seen around each other for a few months and then a statement to People or Gossipcop will be released. If she still has Focus as her next film, it is to be filmed in Buenos Aires for 3 months (as per Ben Afleck). Rob will be busy too that time. So very good chances of ‘splitting up’ around then.

        Here’s to an interesting Summer 2013.

  28. Tig says:

    As long as she’s not papped wearing his underwear on her head-LOL!

    On a serious note- hope he finds a nice pool and a big can of Foster’s soon in Aussie-land-if there has ever been anyone who needed a mental health break, it’s him!

  29. Dawn says:

    Oh who cares really? These two are young and in their 20′s and I bet he cheated on her too. I hope they remain friends and move on.

  30. ClassyKitten007 says:

    I couldn’t care less.. Why are these two even in the news? They are nobodys without Twilight and uh, err, Twilight is gone.

  31. TXCinderella says:

    Fox News is also stating this as fact.

  32. megsie says:

    I suspect the romance, or what’s left of it, with burn out slowly. Still, I can’t help but wonder if the tabs are taking advantage of Rob’s trip to Australia.

  33. Patrice says:

    Are we still sticking with the idea that this relationship wasn’t entirely studio manufactured? (I never personally bought it but, who knows.) Kaiser, your timeline of things post Breaking Dawn publicity tour was spot on!

  34. aston martin says:

    I dunno. I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist, so I can’t agree with that possibility. I’m thinking maybe the whirlwind-iness of the press tour, all the togetherness and travel and seeing each other all hotted up then bitching to each other behind the scenes about it all while chain-smoking probably made them more sexified to each other than when they were back in LA with all the drama, and nothing BUT the drama. But then the bubble burst, and Rob realized he really did feel like a pu$$y and that he deserves better, and that it’s summer in Australia right now, and he’s gonna have some well-earned FUN.

    Good for him.

    As for her, I only want to see her in a how-to video with her makeup artist showing us all how to do our makeup to look like Kristen’s. I love her makeup. I can’t even help it.

  35. Janet says:

    Please, please, please, please, please let it be true.

  36. StaCat1 says:

    Now that the final Twilight has been released and promoted– can we not have to hear about these two anymore.

    If true, I second the Mazel Tov on Rob’s entry into manhood.

    • A says:

      Gossip Cop says it is not true, and People and Gossip Cop tend to be more reliable. Plus, there are a bunch of factors like it’s the Sun, the timeline doesn’t match up considering they were spotted out late Sunday, early Monday, and the sloppiness of the PR (hooking up and breaking up 2 months before and after the film released is very PR)…I’m calling a mid May break-up.

  37. Cecada says:

    Stay together, break up… I don’t care. WHATEVER, man.

    I’m just glad that whole Twat-light series is DONE. I couldn’t even sit through one of those movies, they were so bad. UGH.

  38. 5 pictures and she doesn’t look at him once. It’s obvious, she’s just not that into him. As a matter of fact, she looks and acts a little gay. Good luck to them both, they should just be who they are, and they will find true happiness.

  39. elceibeno08 says:

    Okay I see the pattern here. First Liberty and Rupert broke up. And now Rob and Kristen broke up. It looks like Kaiser guessed it right again. She said these two disfunctional couples would break up in January and now it has happened.

    I am so happy for Rob. Who wants a two-timing trampire around. She stopped loving him a long time ago anyway. Enjoy your freedom Kristen. Go and sow your girlie wild oats.

  40. faithful says:

    What really amazes me is all you teenagers and housewifes who are taken in by this supposed heartbroken brit. He will be in the arms of another in no time at all. Drinking pints down under and making damn sure no one takes a picture of him kissing a woman in public. If he even likes women?

  41. Jean says:

    Glad to see that Rob and Kristen are still the hot topic of the day. Wow, look at all of these comments. This is what keeps the stories going.

  42. Bobby the K says:

    Maybe he’ll find someone with class.

  43. Amelia says:

    He can’t find someone with any less class.

  44. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Please let this story be true, just so that the Twihard crap can finally end! Please!!

  45. Chickie Baby says:

    Said it before and I’ll say it again: they NEED to be apart for a while, and live their own lives outside of the dreamy-misty Twilight universe, and date other people! Yes, Rob…Mazel! (Bout dang time.)

  46. Jaxx says:

    I’ve never believed for a minute they had an actual romantic relationship. I think that was crafted to make the Twihards sigh and the two of them laugh all the way to the bank.

    Besides, he’s gay and she’s insufferable.

    • Val5 says:

      I also am convinced that he is gay since some time. I always felt gay vibrations from KStew and I could not understand why we never saw Rob trying to make out with other girls, or just flirting, or at least have serious rumors of him with other girls. How could he be satisfied with a relationship with visibly so little passion? why we never saw them together for a holiday on the beach, on the terrace of a hotel or whatever? why stew always seemed very unhappy with him? The answer was in front of my eyes but I did not want to see it. Frankly I prefer a thousand times to know that he is gay to continue to think that he is just a pathetic loser.

  47. tick says:


    This relationship is fake and always has been. And if it wasn’t fake before they only “got back together” for the sake of the (horrible) teen vampire movies.

    neither one of these people are losing any sleep over the end of their “relationship”.

  48. aquarius64 says:

    It would make sense for Rob to dump her now. The franchise is over. Kristen has become a personal and professional albatross around his neck: personal because of the constant reminders of the scandals, and professional because the two together will always remind people of Twilight.

  49. Francesca says:


  50. MmeRain says:

    I think they could have children together that I still won’t believe that they ever were together…. Just can’t.

  51. Kosmos says:

    Yep, I kind of hope this is true…

  52. Asdfg says:

    God, lets hope so! I’ve always thought he could do better than her! -.-

  53. Jill says:

    If it werent for the producers of that movie forcing them back together, I am sure he would have never gotten back with her.
    They were shoved together and nothing was fixed. It can only end one way.

  54. Val5 says:

    Rob had never be man enough to claim her as his girlfriend, he won’t have the courage to say that she no longer is neither. Theirs teams will keep their fans marinate in this policy of “keep ‘em guessing”shit for some time, in my opinion. What is significant is that KStew is behaving more and more clearly as a lesbian, I think her coming out will happen one day not far away, and Rob will look even more stupid, if it’s even possible … ^

  55. Mew says:

    I hope it’s true and that he finally left her. I also hope it was all true when there was that thing about them having sex 7 times a day. I already back then said “go on then, get all you can get” and so it seems he did. Well done, now Pat, finally move on. He still has a chance of becoming more serious kind of actor.

  56. WendyNerd says:

    I love it when Twihards lose their shit, so I’m going to pretend this is true.

    Also, the best part of this article was when they referred to Kristen Stewart as “stunning.” The only thing “stunning” about her is how average looking she is.

  57. AustinMJ says:

    Look, he LOVED her and was completely blindsided and publicly humiliated by her mini coopering. Shock, wanting to believe this person loves you – even when you don’t understand how they could do that – wanting to have what you thought you had. plus i do think he depended on her – Hollywood is weird and filled with sharks. I think it took him some time to find himself again and see her for what she is. A selfish emotionally immature person who will never be what he thought she was in his head.

  58. Get a clue says:

    Lainey says they are fine. Should have known he doesn’t have enough balls to dump her.

  59. Tig says:

    Sorry a sentence fragment- “they’re fine”- from a source closely allied with KS’ PR folks won’t kill the dream- free Sparkles in 2013!

  60. MJsinAustin says:

    its a pity too, because he’s a doll. funny, kind, handsome, artistic, sweet nature…
    and the way he looked at her… she is a complete dumbass.

  61. AustinMJ says:

    I’ve got no sympathy for the girl. She had life handed to her on a silver platter – highest paid actress (ha!), movies, money, a sweet handsome man that adored her and she takes it for granted.
    AND she jumped into the middle of a marriage.
    NO love for women who sleep with married men.
    Karma will catch up to little miss thing. and Im sure the media will be right there to document it.
