Is Robert Pattinson already trying to extract himself from Kristen Stewart?

As we discussed yesterday, Robert Pattinson is already in Australia filming his new movie, The Rover. Radar’s sources claimed that Rob wasn’t being a very good boyfriend because he was all “Meh, whatever” about checking in with Kristen Stewart. Allegedly, Kristen is all “pay attention TO MEEEE!!!” and he just doesn’t give a crap. Well, in that same vein, Star Magazine claims that Rob actually told Kristen directly to NOT come to Australia to visit him. Sparkles needs some time alone (“alone” = boning randoms?).

When Robert Pattinson jetted off alone to Australia on January 16th, there was more to his impending split from Kristen Stewart than work. According to insiders, Kristen had asked if she could come visit him on set in Australia and, much to her dismay, he gave her a surprising answer: NO.

“Rob told Kristen not to follow him because he’s going to use the time to think,” the source says. “She’s devastated, but Rob is not budging.”

Sources say Rob is still unable to let go of the betrayal from Kristen’s affair with Rupert Sanders.

“He tried really hard to make it work with Kristen, but in the end it was too hard because he can’t trust her… he said that he needs to figure things out.”

As soon as he arrived in Adelaide, Rob wasted no time getting back into the swing of single life. On Jan. 18, he had drinks at The Grace Emily Hotel, and the next night he was with friends at the Cork Wine Café, followed by an evening at the hot local club Zhivago.

“He kept laughing and flirting with girls,” says one onlooker. “He definitely wasn’t acting like a guy in a relationship!”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

God, I hope this is true. Like, I really, really want to think that Rob is this way. That he only got back with Kristen last year because they had a film to promote and because he’s a professional and because despite it all, he didn’t hate her. And I want to believe that after spending the past few months doubting himself and doubting her, he’s ready to make a somewhat clean break. Please let it be true!

As for the Twihards at Hollywood Life, a “friend close to Kristen” tells the outlet that:

“Kristen is actually in a really good place. Of course she misses Rob, but she knows how important this movie is for him, and she is giving him space. She wants to go visit him, but isn’t sure when. She’s spending a lot of down time, being mellow and catching up on much needed rest. Kristen has been doing a lot of Kundalini yoga, which is helping her to stay balanced and be prepared for her next project. She’s just enjoying living a normal life for the time being… She kind of just trusts that everything between her and Rob will work out for the best,” the insider explains. “She just wants to be happy and at peace, and she wants the same for Rob.”

[From Hollywood Life]

It sounds like Kristen may be making her peace with a slow-motion breakup too? We’ll see. If there are consistent reports of Rob “hanging out” with ladies in Australia or if there are lots of photos and reports of him going to the clubs… we might hear something different from Team Lip-Bite. Then the stories will be “Kristen Betrayed! Kristen In Tears! Kristen Rushes Into Rupert’s Arms For Comfort!”

    So over her..well actually was never under her. Hopefully she drifts off

  2. Sue says:

    Run Rob run!! It would be kinda funny if he revenge mini coopered someone as a way of dumping her.

  3. Eleonor says:

    I can totally buy if at a certain point they had sex. But I don’t buy them as a couple beyond pr reasons.
    There was more chemistry between Kstew and Rupert, than in years of red carpets and photoshoot with Rob.

    • Annie says:

      This is true about Rupert, but the one evidence you should take as how this was real is how much weight they both lost after the scandal. Kristen especially. Her head looked huge, her teeth. Her collarbone stuck out badly. She was alway fit but never skinny where you could see bones. Never.

      That to me is when I got the magnitude of this hot mess.

      • Deb says:

        I seem to recall that one of the best looks Rob ever had was on his NYC Cosmopolis promo tour right after the mini coopering. Sure didn’t look all sad & grief stricken to me. He only looks like a grumpy cat when he’s around little miss sunshine.

      • Eleonor says:

        That could have been the stress, you know she was “risking” her career. and probably there was a lot of pressure from the major, due to the Bkdown movie.

      • Tapioca says:

        I think she might have been more worried about the possible damage a home-wrecky scandal would do to her…

        *OK – straight face, now. Straight. Face.*

        On the Road BSA Oscar chances.

        Bwuahahahahaha!!

      • Annie says:

        What? you wanted him to cry on the red carpet and look hungover to be convinced? He looked extra groomed (which is rare) and wore nice suits, yes, but the smiles never reached his eyes and he lost a ton of weight. Look at pictures before and after and compare yourself. Every fan noticed that immediately. He lost at least 20 lbs. Fan blogs commented on it.

        They both looked fine again in November, Kristen especially, which told me he indeed took her back.

        Just compare pictures.

      • delilah says:

        Cosomopolis promotion was one of his best looks because he lost weight and suddenly he had his 21 year old cheekbones again. That’s not necessarily a good thing though. Most pretty boys who’ve grown into their manhood lose those more sharp angles as they fill out. He brought his A game to promotion, was dressed well, his hair styled better than it has been in ages, he knew he’d be scrutinized. But part of what made him look so striking was the fact he’d lost weight and his face had that 21 year old pretty boy look to it again. Good for fans, not necessarily a sign of good health however.

      I totally agree with this. Why should it be automatically assumed that she lost weight because she lost Rob? There must have been tremendous pressure on her from many sides. She must have been confused as to do what moves she can make to salvage her career. Also her first public appearance in TIFF must have made her nervous. Plus she is so small framed that even a little bit weight lost is going to make her look more frail. Once that was over I think she mentally relaxed and moved on from the scandal and around BD2 release she was her same old confident self. The weight gain was normal and she looked normal.. may have nothing to do with Rob taking her back.

  4. Deb says:

    Never fear the faux couple will keep the prmance going long enough to collect their back end millions from the DVD sales. And the thought of kshrew doing yoga is the funniest joke I’ve heard this week.

    • delilah says:

      either they are mutual bearding for eachother, or else they are in some kind of relationship. Fauxmances by definition are short term arrangements to promote a project-not a four or five year long franchise. In order to commit to such a charade for that long, bearding is the only explanation. Fauxmances are never meant to take over the personal lives of the participants for such an extended period.

      • Claire says:

        Zac Efron and Vanessa naked-photos??

        If the publicity from being together is better than either would get alone, why not keep it going?

      • mln76 says:

        Personally I think they did hook up/fool around and when the publicity people got a hold of it they pretty much cornered them into a relationship. I remember in the beginning when Kristen was still with her ex boyfriend they would do everything to push the rumors that they were hooking up. Like the first director flat out said they had a thing in interviews while Kristen was claiming that she was happy with her boyfriend. It was like they pushed the boyfriend out of the way.
        I think they wen’t along with it because they were in fact hooking up while they were on set etc but I don’t think they were ever exclusive.
        Just my opinion.

      • delilah says:

        Claire-most think Vanessa was a beard. Both R/K were getting a crazy amount of publicity while not being linked together, it’s not like they were need of any extra attention. All that came with the relationship was overexposure to be honest, along with a low quality franchise association.

        min: I don’t think they had some serious relationship either and most likely like most people in their industry, they probably had some sort open setup that couldn’t be elaborated on without traumatizing 12 year old twihards(and their twimoms who like to imagine Robert as a little lamb in the woods who is constantly victimized).

      • Anname says:

        Delilah, why would it be more likely that they had some “sort of open thing” rather than they were in a regular sort of relationship? What is the evidence that makes you think that?

        I am not saying that they have the epic romance of the century, but why on earth could it not just have been a regular couple, trying to navigate a weird environment?

      • Lauren says:

        +1 I believe he is possibly gay and she’s a lesbian or at least “bicurious”. There’s also rumors that she’s munched on Dakota Fanning and that’s why Dakota’s always defending her “friend”. I dont think this was or is a real relationship. I think she got lazy, got caught and then had to face the fallout and the backlash that comes from breaking the people’s hearts. He was discreet and followed protocol and gets to be the “nice guy” in the public eye.

      • delilah says:

        anname-they may have had/have an exclusive relationship, that’s true. I just think in terms of probability, their rules of a relationship could be different from ours. They are young, they have jobs that seperate them for months at a time. When both film, the other isn’t by their side constantly, for understandable reasons. This can lead to temptations though, and sometimes open setups are arranged for this reason.

      • karmasabiatch! says:

        delilah-Ikr?!

        It kind of cracks me up to see people get so personally involved with a faux-couple. You summed up beautifully what I’ve always thought about these two. Scary to think studio execs, PR flacks, etc., would invest so much into making them the “love story” of the decade, but I’ve never believed it. Who knows what their real story is, but the chemistry between them is waaay off. I just don’t buy it. Hope they go their separate ways and peace be with them.

    • Anname says:

      Look at Rob’s words and actions. He runs from publicity like that. Over and over he has said that tabloid nonsense hurts an actor’s career. Rob wants to be an actor, not a celebrity, in his words.

      The salacious spin on everything – oh they are faking this, oh those are staged pictures… so many theories are generated, but it becomes more and more ridiculous to come up with excuses as time goes on. We are now on 5 yrs+ of faking a relationship? For movies that would sell on their own.

      • c'est la vie says:

        He just presented at the Golden Globes. Yes, that would be the “celebrity” part of the business he’s in. Let’s not be hypocritical here. It’s just something he’ll have to deal with for the money and the “work” that he’s doing.

        And btw here’s hoping that he’s “boning randoms”(LOL at that one) and having a little fun. Even I think he deserves that one, after Kstew and her armpit licking mess of bad publicity that she’s brought down upon him. He’s got such a loving girlfriend there. Great relationship. LMAO. Again. Oh Schadenfreude – I have to stop finding them so entertaining.

      • Anname says:

        Presenting at the Golden Globes and showing up an industry events is a BIT different than being tabloid-photographed on the beach with your girlfriend don’t you think? And note that he and Kristen don’t appear at those types of things together, either.

        His point was that the more you know about an actor’s personal life, the less believable he is on screen.

      • c'est la vie says:

        No – it’s still all part of the celebrity package, always has been, always will be.

        That’s what becoming famous is about. It’s unavoidable.
        It’s bad when you don’t get papped.

        You’ve got to love Hollywood…

    • c'est la vie says:

      Why do I picture her doing yoga with a cigarette hanging out of her mouth, in dirty sweats…

      Will the fauxmance ever end?

  5. Redheadwriter says:

    Now that Liberty filed for divorce, what’s the “appropriate” time frame before KStew and Rupert start back up?

    • Ann says:

      Don’t you people know what a fling is? LOL at how many of you think Kristen and Rupert had some kind of true love deal. He was a typical player, probably starting his midlife crisis, trying to get in the pants of a young thing when he had the opportunity.

      Really, why would she want to go back to a skeevy old dude paying alimony and child support? And deal with all the flak that would come her way. I’d venture to guess he’s about the last person on earth she’d want to be with right now after all the sh*t that c ame her way as a result.

      Also don’t think there’s a chance he’d go back to her. Not if he wants to continue to have full access to the kids and a good relationship with his now ex.

      In addition to personal ramifications for both, there would also be serious career ramifications, especially for her. Not going to happen.

      • LAK says:

        Photo assumptioning pictures from the SWATH press tour, it wasn’t a fling. There are pictures of them off the RC though still on the tour which are so intimate, i doubt a fling would be that hot. With other SWATH people around them.

        Which makes me sad for Rob and Liberty.

        I won’t be surprised if after a suitable moment, we see them come out as a couple.

      • Amelia says:

        @Jameson… the old guy takes a heftier blame because he is older supposedly wiser and married.Shouldn’t have led the young girl astray.

  6. Magritt says:

    He traveled to Oz three weeks ahead of his working schedule and all he was doing there is scoping out bars and taking pics with girls. And K’s pr team still insists “they are stronger than ever”. It sounds ridiculous.

    • Erinn says:

      Yeah that sounded weird to me. When I moved to my college dorm, I would not go a single day earlier than I had to because I didn’t want to leave my now fiance. And we weren’t living together. I can’t imagine WANTING to be rid of him for a few weeks, even though I had to be for weeks at a time. And we were only 2.5 hours apart… not continents.

    • FreeSpiritedGirl says:

      We haven’t seen any pics of him hanging out with random girls in Aus.

    • Ann says:

      Actors show up when they’re told to show up. Honestly, do you think the studio is paying him to hang out for no reason?

      There’s a little thing called preproduction that often takes a few weeks before the cameras roll. Hair and makeup testing, wardrobe fittings, working with stunt doubles, rehearsals and more all take place in this time. The times he’s been photographed out he was with the director, producer, or crew. He wouldn’t be hanging with them if he was there on his own.

      • Magritt says:

        Other cast members (at least, Guy and Scoot) showed up in Oz much later. Looks like only Pattinson was needed for pre-production. I bet it was his choice. Kristen arrived in LA one day before the Golden Globes, didn’t accompany him for whatever reasons and then he fled to Aus right after the GG ceremony. For me it looks like they don’t need each other’s company anymore.

      • Ann says:

        LOL, Magritt. “Much later”? It was only about a week. Different actors have different schedules on a set. Guy and Scoot had other obligations, which may be exactly why Rob had to go a week early, to get some of his stuff out of the way.

        Over the course of a movie, actors come and go. They’re not all there day one, and don’t all stay for the duration. But since the studio is paying their way, rest assured that they’re not there unless they are needed to be.

        If Rob was looking to get away from Kristen, there are certainly easier and more enjoyable ways to achieve that. Go on vacation with friends, visit family in the UK, whatever. He’d have a lot more enjoyable options than hanging out in a hotel with paps covering it

      • Magritt says:

        My point is – they are not keen on keeping each other’s company considering their separate activities in the last months after BD promo. You can create a thousand excuses for them being apart, still they don’t act like a normal couple under these circumstances. Robert obviously had enough time to hang out on a daily basis down under, then why she didn’t go with him? We know she’s not working and “focused on her relationship with Rob” according to her pr team’s statements. What is the reason for her not being there when he’s not that busy during pre-production?

      • nina2 says:

        but they aren’t a normal couple if they are a couple indeed. They’re actors, and famous ones at that. I’ve been around artistic types with varying degrees of success due to my sister. She was a normal girl who fell in love with a rocker dude who was in a famous band at the time. That made for abnormal circumstances for their relationship to grow. As a result of him touring a lot, they ended up having a relationship that was monogamous when they were at “home” but open when he toured or when she toured as a back up singer. It worked for them for their unusual circumstances, and hollywood folks are known for deviating from the norm as well. Maybe Rob and Kristen have a relationship of some sort, but it very well may not be similar to what we call normal.

      • LAK says:

        Magritt – Kirsten met up with Rob at a GG after party.

      • Freya says:

        Give us a pic – or it didn’t happen. There were tons of pics from GG and KStew was nowhere to be found. Robsten fanfic.

    • Pauly says:

      Guy Pierce, the star of the movie, wasn’t there. He was still in the States. Rob didn’t have to go as early as he did.

    • LAK says:

      Pauly – Depending on the shooting schedule, not all actors of a film shoot at the same time. Especially if they don’t have scenes together. And their other commitments.

      This is an indie, it would be a foolish producer who wastes money on non essential crew at any given stage of the production.

  7. allons-y alonso says:

    Thank you Rob for doing us all a favour! I really don’t want that thing in the country.

  8. mln76 says:

    It seems really obvious to me relationship was probably not that serious and hyped for publicity. Rob was just smarter about keeping his pants zipped in public.
    I really think the pressure of not being able to have a real boyfriend made the Rupert relationship more appealing to her. (not excusing her just saying)
    Now it seems like they just have to get over the embarrassment.
    Studio arranged relationships are so common and they go back since the very beginning of the industry heck they made Elizabeth Taylor marry Conrad Hilton to coordinate publicty with Father of the Bride.

  9. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    I wish it’s true. :D I do think he’s trying for a clean break-up, but I don’t believe that he’s up b0ning other girls. I have seen those pics of him spending time in random Australian Hotels/Club. In most of them, he’s with his guy friends.

  10. Annie says:

    Yasssss! Do it Robert! Seriously, it’s time to move on. And you look much cleaner and hotter without you.

    The way he’s been treated, especially the last year with her flipping him off, telling him to STFU in public, just look for the comic con press conference video. Nothing but passive aggressiveness and some hostility there. All the lies. How she loved being extra affectionate with Taylor right in his face. She just demeaned him for so long “my f***ing boyfriend” and then cheating too? And then she plays victim and releases an embarrassing statement. I’ve said this before but it looks like an abusive relationship. Nothing but inflicting pain and humiliation on the person you supposedly love and respect. At what point do you say to yourself “stop hurting him.”

    Walk away Rob. You get rid of the negativity, you get rid of the lies, you stop worrying, you will drop a weight off your shoulders and very importantly: you will lose the obsessive twihard portion who won’t leave you two alone until you break up.

    As for Kristen, hope she takes this time to think, regroup, really absorb her lessons and maybe take some acting lessons, some PR lessons. Read a few non-hipster books. Learn to speak without using f^ck or sh*t as crotches. And grow up. Use this break, which is involuntary, to grow up Kristen. You can’t go through life hurting the boys who love you. Rob is not the first.

    • Tessa says:

      You are so right. She blatantly flirted with Rob, I mean BLATANTLY, while she was dating Michael. That went on for what, a year? That had to be hurtful, and yet she still did it. She’s not a nice person. She’s down right cruel it seems.

      • Michele says:

        “You are so right. She blatantly flirted with Rob, I mean BLATANTLY, while she was dating Michael. That went on for what, a year? That had to be hurtful, and yet she still did it. She’s not a nice person. She’s down right cruel it seems.”

        Rob blatantly flirted with her from the very beginning knowing full well she had a serious boyfriend. Some might say that Rob was responsible for her breakup. Some might say that he’s cruel and not such a nice person for doing that. See how that works, Tessa?

      • Tessa says:

        Michele, you crack me up. Gold star for you. No, I didn’t think at all about how Rob was single and flirting with someone he had a crush on. Of course I didn’t, because that’s pretty normal behavior for single people. Kristen flirted back, stuck her finger in his mouth, etc. She was the one with someone at home whose feelings could be hurt, not Rob.

      • Michele says:

        Tessa, so you think Rob gets a pass from openly flirting and pursuing Kristen during the first Twilight movie when he knew she had a serious boyfriend because he was single at the time???

        You think Rob’s behavior was “normal for a single person”? Are you serious?

      • terra says:

        meh, they both openly flirted with that first film like horny teenagers. I still remember there were behind the scenes clips and there was one where Rob was staring at her and stuck out his tongue suggestively and she got all flustered. I think they both acted inappropriately.

    • sarah says:

      Completely Agree!!!
      I truly think her mom is to blame for raising such a spoiled person. I keep forgetting that she is 22 years old because she acts like a 15 year old. 22 is very young but she is WAY TOO IMMATURE for her age. Kristen seems very aware of the camera & the hype around her. Maybe she subconsciously does things to draw in more attention to herself, I don’t know. Robert seems to want a “normal” life & an acting career. I really think for the sake of his sanity, he should leave her. Kristen might be a nice person but she definitely changed for the worse.

  11. supervisor says:

    this is nothing but a showmance. as soon as all the promotional crap is done including dvd stuff- they will go their separate ways.

    • nina says:

      that’s possible, but the main problem with that theory is that this theory’s champions have been predicting this for years now. “After Twilight 3 promotion, Rob’s planning an exit strategy” said fans five years ago….lol

      • Erinn says:

        However, 5 years ago, I don’t think anyone really expected 5 movies. They’ve drug the god awful books out as much as possible. I think most people expected them to be done when the promotions were all complete; not a specific year.

      • nina says:

        I meant it more as a joke that the same predictions are consistently disproven. Every premiere, it’s declared he has an exit strategy. And then the premiere comes and goes and everything seems the same, and so then dvd sales promotion explains the lack of exiting. Same for the other side too-they predict all the time that they are going to get married or be together forever, and they get disappointed when they seem to be more casual than they hoped.

        Neither side is ever proven right or wrong, but the predictions continue, regardless of whatever is really happening with them.

    • Annie says:

      The dvd doesn’t even really matter. There’s never interviews, appearances or an event. It just comes out.

      And fans are pissed off as it is because there’s no R/K commentary again, and Summit announced some special BD1 DVD with 8 extra minutes which is lame because the dvd came out only one year ago and people spent money on expensive alleged special editions.

    • Nicole says:

      The other problem with the showmance theory is that most of the time this doesn’t look like a romance at all. They’ve barely spent any time together over the past two months even though they knew he was going to be away in Australia until April. They’re never seen out together except with a troupe of friends. Does that sound like any kind of real or faux romance to you? If it was the latter, surely they’d make more effort to make it look real? Same for the bearding suggestion. If you want camouflage for some embarrassing activity you want to conceal, you’d put the effort in to make your false front believable, no? Not these two. At the moment I think there are very few non-shippers who seriously think they’re together romantically. Yet, curiously, as soon as the media, quite understandably, claims it’s over, one of their publicists rushes out a denial on Gossip-cop! Go figure!

      • Michele says:

        You do realize we only see a tiny fraction of their lives IF there is someone nearby to witness it. I’m sure they do lots of stuff together that we don’t know about. Rob took her to a friend’s wedding 2 summers ago. If that wedding guest had not put the pictures up on Facebook, we would’ve never known Rob and Kristen were at the wedding together, looking all loved up and affectionate.

      • Anname says:

        Well isn’t it obvious that blurry wedding photos coming out 6 months later from a random facebook MUST be part of their grand PR showmance to sell DVDs….. :)

      • Michele says:

        Anname, I always said if Rob and Kristen were truly faking their romance to fool the public and their fans, they were going about it backwards! LOL Instead of running away from the paps and sneaking in secret entrances and back doors to restaurants and bars, they should be throwing themselves at those paps! They should have those paps on speed dial and should go to public access places where they are easily recognized instead of super private Soho House with its private underground parking lot and no pic taking policy.

        Yeah, they need some PR coaching and proper instruction in Famewhoring your Relationship 101.

  12. Steph says:

    I hope it’s true, I will get a strangle pleasure from twiihards everywhere weeping sparkly tears. Other than that, I really don’t care either way, lol.

  13. nina says:

    This always happens when one of them films. The gossip sites and mags create daily or weekly “oh noes!” drama that seemed to just be pulled from their asses in terms of “sources.”

    I still think their whatevership they have is probably much less intense and more casual than the fans and media attempt to make it as either the love story of the century or some pr-driven fauxmance that has rob in shackles and at the mercy of kristen’s pr team.

    • Ann says:

      I think you’re on the money, Nina. It’s comical to see all the stories about them, all different. There’s about 20 different magazines and websites, all with exclusive “sources” (sure) telling wildly different stories. They’re not speaking, oh wait they’re sexting. They broke up, oh wait the wedding is on. I don’t think either them, their teams, or their friends are saying anything to anyone right now. It’s all fan fiction.

      I also think their relationship is somewhere between the epic love of the shippers, and the showmance of the conspiracy theorists. Whatever it is, it is amusing to see how vehemently each “side” fights to make their case. Why do they care so much? Especially when they insist they don’t.

  14. Micki says:

    At this point who cares much? I think it was a strong prediction they’re going to break some time this year.

    What I honestly find funny is the assumption that any given man in a relationship/marriage will stay glued at his hotel bed/trailer and never ever will go out for a drink or won’t chat up a strange woman when he’s away from home.

    • Michele says:

      “What I honestly find funny is the assumption that any given man in a relationship/marriage will stay glued at his hotel bed/trailer and never ever will go out for a drink or won’t chat up a strange woman when he’s away from home”

      I couldn’t agree with you more, Micki! The even funnier part is when Rob is seen out in a bar or restaurant posing for a pic with an attractive fan or seen talking to a female who is not Kristen, then he’s either flirting, attracted to, hooking up with, is secretly seeing this person aka “the secret girlfriend nobody knows about” you name it! It’s never because he’s just being his usual friendly self in a social situation. But when Kristen is seen with him, it’s strictly for PR purposes to maintain the showmance.

      It’s so crazy what some people convince themselves to believe just because they don’t want Rob in a romantic relationship with Kristen!

    Wish this was true but it’s probably not. He is whipped and will not leave Kstew. He usually goes to bars with friends all the time in the U.S. and UK right? so that’s nothing new. She has to break up with him cause he worships her like a god. Too bad.

  16. normades says:

    I think they have been done for a while and just aren’t making any official announcements about it. That is if they ever really were.

    • Magritt says:

      There will be no official announcement at all. They’ve never acknowledged they’re a couple – why would they announce break-up? They’ll quietly go their separate ways, maybe they already do, showing up together occasionally ’cause they have mutual friends and work in the same industry.

    • honeybee says:

      I think there will be a statement given to Gossipcop or People mag to state that they are done officially. Why? Because they made a spectacle of themselves reconciling prior to the BD2 release and made it so obvious that they are together.
      The best way for both, especially for Rob is to make the break up news official. So he can move on without a question mark hanging over his head. He doesn’t need to play the “are they/ aren’t they” game with her to stay relevant.

      • Magritt says:

        I would LOVE to see the official announcement in GC or People mag and the inevitable Twihard meltdown afterwards, but I doubt it’s gonna happen. Sometimes I hate Rob for keeping silence – if he provided us with some comment on what’s happening in his life as other celebrities do, there would be less drama and conspiracy theories all around. Looks like he doesn’t mind being a tabloid fodder though he stated otherwise repeatedly.

      • Anname says:

        Made a spectacle of themselves? Yes, how dare they go to a dive bar in their neighborhood with friends, sneak out the back door of a Prince concert, and hang out in their backyard.

        Should they have remained in the house until Breaking Dawn promo?

      • Jen says:

        Why do you think Rob whould give the public a statement about his private life? It has nothing to do with his movies. He doesn’t owe the public an explanation regarding his love life. I can’t understand why people are so rabid about him explaining his personal life to the world. Would you?

      • Magritt says:

        I don’t mean he should comment on his personal life on a regular basis. But it’s always preferable to openly address the situation when something extraordinary takes place, facts are distorted and things are being blown out of proportion. After the very public summer scandal it would have been more mature of him (and of her as well) to handle the situation more openly – maybe to give a kind of exclusive interview or, at least, commentary. “Ignoring the elephant in the room” didn’t serve them well – they keep on being the object of speculation, gossip and joking. Rob’s image wouldn’t have taken such a big blow if he hadn’t given up at tabloids’ mercy. IMO, of course.

      • honeybee says:

        @Anname
        Yes IMO they did make a spectacle of themselves trying to convince the Twihards that Robsten ie Edward/Bella was unbroken. For a couple who had a very shaky summer and with a big movie release impending they must have been under tremendous pressure to show a united front. For a movie with the main plot of Forever EPIC love, suddenly having the main leads being broken up would have been horrifying for the studios. If they had never been a couple it would have been diff from the beginning. But Robsten made the whole Twicrap more alluring. I think Rob had to make up with that skank real quick. Just the various reconciliation stories from the media outlets were not convincing enough. So their photos started to appear. It was all staged imo. Of course you will disagree. IDGAF.
        Rob himself mentioned in an interview how he doesn’t like the Halloween scene but there he was with a cheap mask on, rubbing shoulders with other celebs, holding her hand in a heavy pap infested place. How convenient. I do think their backyard pics were staged too. The pics were conveniently up on Popsugar for 24 hours before they took them down. I am not buying Rob’s face saving superficial put-down saying how illegal some of the papz behavior is. What else is he going to say?

        You may think you are the voice of reason here but I think you are naive if you really believe they were unaware of the paps on their various outings.

        How come there were no pictures once BD2 release came and went? If they can be this stealthy now how come they couldn’t be that way before BD2 release? They were totally selling the ‘fact’ they had reconciled before they went on their tour. Simple.

        You can always argue that these crappy movies sell by themselves but the studio with 100s of millions riding on this crap had no way of knowing for sure how the whole thing will play out. They had to have their bases covered. I believe Rob and that skank had to show us that everything was fine with them. That’s why there was a deluge of pics floating around for a whole week prior to the promos.

      • Anname says:

        Yeah, I hear that naive thing a lot here. To quote you, iDGAF. Sorry I don’t put a negative spin on everything. I disagree with your basic premise that the twilight series would have started to lose money if they were not a real life couple. By the 3rd movie the audience was well established and hasn’t wavered.

      • nina says:

        The only people who give a shit about “robsten” or “prsten” are overinvested fans—–who are the first people to buy tickets for the midnight showings! they are the choir that don’t need to be preached to, and if “robsten” had broken up before premiere? robsten fans would have picked as side with the couple–and then proceed to buy FIVE premiere tickets to the midnight showings to “support Rob/Kristen/Robsten’s legacy/their broken homed dog.” Prsten fans would have bought TEN tickets—to smile smugly at the showing.

        All this concern about how their relationship would have affected box office was overblown–in the end, all these dedicated twilight fans would have still made it to the theater. Their motivations would have shifted slightly, but as all the box office receipts show from movies 2-5, they still would have gone. Cause twilight’s profits have been that consistent for years now, showing these fans come out to support each movie loyally.

      • Freya says:

        Summit wanted moviegoers to watch the last movie REPEATEDLY. The Twilight fanbase isn’t that big but a lot of teenage girls used to go to theaters up to 10 times in the name of neverending supernatural love. If the real Bella and Edward wouldn’t have reconciled there was a chance that box office gross wouldn’t have reached its usual success due to overall Twihards’ disappointment, so Summit had to cover their asses. And another moment – they need to clean up Kristen’s image before the premieres, if she had been booed on red carpets, it would have dramatically tainted the whole thing.

      • LAK says:

        @Magritt – why is it the mature thing for him to explain himself? When has he ever? Is it by permission of the public that he has a love life?

        All the Robsten twihards are insisting their fanfic be true or else. That is just ridiculous and crazy. Why should he be held hostage to a made up world simply because the crazy people who believe in it want it to be true and are willing to spin their own version of events no matter the reality? Best to ignore it completely until these people get a life.

        As for handling their traumatic summer events behind closed doors, have you completely missed the very good examples of why it is better to keep it behind closed doors in the spectacle of Jen Aniston/Brangelina or LeAnn Rhimes and her shenanigans??

        Julia Roberts went after and got a married man. Some minor public skirmishes with his wife, but then put it all behind closed doors and now happily talks about HER husband without a blush and no one brings up the fact that she broke up his family, paid off the wife and married him.

        My point is keeping quiet is a very good strategy. There might be some heat in the short term, but people get over it alot quicker than going on a public heartbreak tour.

    • Michele says:

      Is it just me or does anyone else find it extremely rude, obnoxious and creepy that devoted Kristen hating Rob fans are anxiously planning his breakup with Kristen in such detailed descriptions and enthusiasm???

      Wow.

  17. Elizabeth says:

    The guy is totally whipped. She is the one who will dump him eventually. It would be awesome if he did the dumping but he is a doormat so I don’ expect this to happen anytime soon. Only if Kristen and Rupert go official lol

  18. MAP says:

    CDAN (I think) had a blind item revealed about Sparkles that he was hitting everything in sight while dating Grumperina (models, randoms, Paris Hilton. ewwwwwwww).

    • Annie says:

      I don’t buy that. Everytime he’s out there’s a stalker tweeting pics and writing a detailed report. Every single time. Paris wanted him bad in early 2009 before Kristen but got turned down. Lainey Gossip was watching the whole thing. It happened in Cannes.

    • Ann says:

      CDAN is a joke. They were exposed last year in a pretty wild write up. They even have disclaimers on their site that their stories are often fictional. Read it for entertainment value, fine, but don’t believe what you read there.

  19. elceibeno08 says:

    I hope this story is true. Kristen must be very ticked off she has lost her ‘America’s sweetheart” title when she cheated on Rob. The twilight franchise is over, and so is their relationship. Let everyone get on with their lives: Liberty, Rob, Kristen, and Rupert. I am sure some of the haters here would love to see Rupert tarred and feathered on national television, but he is already paying for his betrayal. He lost his wife and marriage. And now he can only see his kids during the weekends. Divorce sucks.!

  20. janie says:

    Gosh i hope so! Can’t stand the tart! Her old fling is available? Not so much fun if u can’t do it behind ur honeys back? Right Kristen?

  21. Crystal says:

    I don’t like Kristen and don’t like Rob’s face but I think they’re a real couple. *shrugs*
    I guess I’m the only one here who does. twihards will buy their DVD’s whether they’re together or not so why don’t you guys reach a little harder for another theory.

    I just don’t buy that Rob is playing hard to get and that Kristen gives even a quarter of f*ck about anything other than getting high.

    And I’ve never taken a cheater back but what’s the point in taking one back and then playing games and sh*t ? Just break up if you’re so unhappy. It’s not fair on either of them IMO.

    I can just imagine Kristen coming home from church and Rob screaming ‘WHO YOU BEEN F*CKING??’

    Like, seriously if he needs to ‘figure things out’ then let the plank of wood go. There are a bunch of mouth breathing weirdo’s living in their mum’s basement on Dlisted that would happily take your place Rob.

    • omg says:

      LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      “mouth breathing weirdos”
      Jesus, I can’t stop laughing hahahahaha!
      I bet they stand in front of the mirror, wearing dirty t shirts, not showering, not combing their hair, practicing their lip bite & “bad a$$” idgf look. LOL!

  22. Tig says:

    To those who believe it was a shomance- then Rob is the greatest actor ever, bec there were so many pics where he is looking at her like she is the greatest thing in the world. Pretty hard to keep up that level of fakery for 4 yrs.

    I think KS will be learning that old truth- you don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone.

    • ORLY says:

      I don’t know what their relationship is/was, but using pictures of him looking at her as proof is poppycock. There are lots of pics of Robert looking at other women intensely, is he boning them all?
      Dude has some sort of weird intensity to his stares, it seems.

  23. lylaooooo says:

    i love kristen makeup….thats the only thing i like abouut her…

  24. Jocelyn says:

    Does anyone actually believe these headlines?

    He is not going to break up with her. It is not happening. The day they break up is when she decides it is over, and she decides to be hard core, real, and miserable looking with someone else.

  25. Dawn says:

    Oh I hope this is true. Once a cheater always a cheater in my book.Besides he is such a good actor and she is so bla.

  26. Ravensdaughter says:

    Whatever. I bet that’s how Rob feels, too.

  27. Gabby says:

    If I was Rob, I would feel like the whole cheating mess betrayal would feel like a fresh wound after hearing about liberty’s divorce filing. I could not date someone who was a big cause in ruining a family. Rob needs to grow some balls and figure out that dating Kristen or whatever it is, is doing him no favors. And I believe he is trying to shed that twilight image… What better way to do it than dump Kristen? But we are all preaching to the choir. And anyways, I guess it’s safe to say we don’t know what their relationship is truly like.

  28. Mouse says:

    These two have zero chemistry. Even when she’s draping herself over him for the cameras, he looks like he can’t wait to get away. I’ll bet Rob’s feeling relieved as hell that Twilight shit is over and done with.

  29. LeeLoo says:

    I never believed it was a showmance until after Coopergate. I just think Rob has a little more respect for himself than to give into Hollywood in that way. I could be wrong. Money talks and all.

    I’m not sure why Rob chose to reconcile but he just seems as if he’s mentally checked out from Kristen. So I hope he figures it out whether he actually wants to stay with her or whether he will leaves. It isn’t fair to be apart of something if you know in your heart it isn’t what you want.

  30. ctkat1 says:

    So…Kristen and Rob are conveniently “cooling off” right at the same time that Liberty Ross filed for divorce, leaving Rupert single? That’s some convenient timing…

  31. G says:

    All I see is Jennifer Lawrence smiling, waiving and holding her awards.

    SUCK IT KSTEW! LOL!

  32. aquarius64 says:

    I wrote most of this on another thread but I think it applies here:

    I hope Rob will kick her to the curb. This girl was not worth the global humiliation he received at her and Rupert’s hands. His own image took a hit for taking her back, for he now looks whipped. No amount of money was worth it.

    As for making the decision for reconciling the PR strategy from both camps was bad. Twilight is over now, so there’s no franchise profits to protect (nor a sleazy girlfriend). Rob & Kristen should have taken a page out of Beyonce’s book how to deal with a scandal: head on and decisively. Beyonce held a presser for the Super Bowl where she sang the national anthem live and took questions from the press to explain what happened at the inauguration. I wasn’t happy with what she did that day, but I was satisfied with the answer. She’ll still have critics for this, but I think after the press conference and the half-time show the matter will be closed. “Robsten” will continued be dogged by the media with her “momentary indiscretion” because of their duck-and-cover approach when dealing with the press regarding their relationship. That’s why the paps feel they have license to get in their faces like they did at LAX last Thanksgiving. Their fans fighting with detractors online will not make the scandal go away. Tidbits of stolen moments and Skype sex will not shut it down. The Ross/Sanders divorce has brought Mini-Cooper-gate back front and center in the news. If these two don’t want to continue to be considered jokes they need to deal with it publicly once and for all. Sometimes silence and statements from publicists are not enough.

    • Anname says:

      “No amount of money was worth it”.
      I think everyone agress with this sentiment, so why do people still think they are faking, or profiting in some great way? They are choosing to be together, and don’t choose to talk about it, simple as that. It certainly doesn’t benefit their careers, as you have pointed out.

      “If these two don’t want to continue to be considered jokes they need to deal with it publicly once and for all.”
      If they keep showing up places together, it pretty much tells people what they want to know anyway. I think it is odd that you are demanding they release some sort of statement. If they did that, half the comments here would call them attention-seeking famewh_res anyway.

      Rob does not discuss his personal life, period. If he didn’t start opening up after this summer, I don’t see him doing it now.

      • aquarius64 says:

        No it doesn’t tell people what their status is. As Kristen said in an interview she likes to keep em guessing. That may work for teenage fans but most adults have less tolerance. YOU MESS, YOU OWN UP, yourself not with statements from publicists. Beyonce nipped her mess in the bud in a week. If “Robsten” had the courage to deal with it upfront this would have died down sooner. They have no one but themselves to blame for forever being beaten up in the press. They brought it on themselves for playing games with the media and public. Now with the cheating-cum-divorce it’s biting them in the butts. There is a way to handle the press; they did it badly and they’re paying for it.

      • Anname says:

        They aren’t playing games, you may disagree with their strategy but it isn’t game playing. Rob’s answer was way better by the way, he said it only becomes personal if you let it. Kristen’s answer made me cringe, I don’t really think that is what she was trying to say. She isn’t exactly articulate.

        I think you overestimate how much your average person cares about this. If you can’t “tolerate” him not talking about his girlfriend or his relationship status, you are over invested.

  33. aquarius64 says:

    @anname – Rob’s answer was to take the girl back. When he did and stays silent he co-signs on her stunts. So he gets the brickbats too but that’s his fault. And you proved my point that fans like you think taking a personal shot at a critic like me would make me shut up and in turn make the scandal go away. You simply have to accept it that it will stay out there as long as they keep up the games. And you have to accept a lot of people think your idol are low. As for no interest – a “Robsten” story gets a lot of traffic (most trainwrecks do) otherwise no one would write them.

    • Anname says:

      What personal shot?
      I don’t care if you go away or not, I am saying the amount of people who are as invested as those of us posting is minimal. Yes, Robsten stories are huge, of course, but the person reading OK in line at the grocery store isn’t mulling over their status once it’s their turn at the cashier.
      And I do not have an idol, I am a fan, and am quite aware of the difference. I will defend him here because I think he gets a lot more sh_t than he deserves. Opposing views are interesting.

  34. BizziLizzi says:

    Wooo my little Adelaide is on Celebitchy! Rob was here for a couple of weeks, and apparently he is now up in the middle of nowhere in the Flinders Ranges in South Australia for filming.
    For the record I never really believed these two were that serious, maybe they have casual thing going but it all seemed like a very convenient/publicity type thing.

  35. Sarah says:

    Kristen cheated on Michael Angarano, & now she cheated on Robert Pattinson. She seems to want something when she cannot have it. Robert will find someone amazing someday & realize how manipulative she really was. He seems like a nice guy & I don’t believe that he fooled around in the relationship. A jerk doesn’t give the kind of time & attention he used to give her. It’s funny how cocky Kstew got & believed her own hype. Even before the scandal, people really seem to dislike her. I do not think she will be the A list star she secretly wanted to be. Without “Robsten Epic Love” she will fade away.

    • Michele says:

      Sarah, Rob pursued and flirted with Kristen very openly for all to see during the first Twilight movie. He admitted his crush on her during Twilight promo to the press while Kristen was still with her boyfriend Michael. He knew Kristen had a serious, long term boyfriend but that didn’t stop him. Some might say, Rob was very manipulative and caused Kristen’s break up.

      I keep hearing the blame being placed on Kristen for cheating on Michael with Rob. But shouldn’t Rob share in that blame if he started up something with Kristen knowing she was involved with someone else? Michael even accompanied Kristen on some of the Twilight promo where Rob was also present. I’m sure Rob met Michael during those times when their paths crossed during Twilight promo.

      I guess the attraction both Rob and Kristen felt for eachother was just too strong to deny. They’re still together even after Kristen’s hurtful cheating scandal. They obviously have a very strong bond that even a cheating scandal couldn’t break.

      • Sarah says:

        I understand what you are saying Michele. At 1st when the Mini Cooper scandal started I was furious that they kept blaming Liberty & Kristen as the main reason for Rupert’s wandering eyes. It’s always the women’s fault. But honestly, Kristen isn’t a victim though. I will defend Kstew against Ruperv any day. But someone who cannot say no to a man, doesn’t really have any self respect either. I don’t really think young girls should look up to someone who can’t say NO when they are in a relationship with another guy. I completely get that you are frustrated because everyone says horrible things against Kristen but she isn’t a very nice person to other people either, esp. women. Unless it’s a man or a famous well loved actress, I never see Kristen being nice to anyone.

      • Janet says:

        No, Michele, Rob did not cause Kristen’s breakup. You cannot make anyone break up with someone if they don’t want to.

        Stop infantilizing this woman. She is an adult and is responsible for her own choices and actions.

      • Michele says:

        Sarah, Kristen was 17 when she met Rob. She met Michael when she was 14. It’s not unheard of for teenagers to fall in and out of love at that age. She met Rob who is ridiculously handsome and charming as hell…tell me, who could resist Rob’s charms and how long could Kristen go on ignoring his obvious interest in her? I know I probably wouldn’t have been able to at Kristen’s age! Yes, there was very little overlap between her break up with Michael and Rob but it happens at that young age.

        I met my high school boyfriend at 15 and we broke up at 18. We outgrew eachother. It happens to alot of teens at that age. Kristen was no different from most girls her age with her break up from Micheal, her first and only boyfriend until she met Rob.

      • Lilly says:

        Michele Kristen was a teenager when she met rob as well you really think they are going to stay together like edward and bella especially in Hollywood? She cheated on him after only being together 3 years im sure another 3 years from now they may both be single or in a relationship with another person even another 10 or 15 years from now. Dont be shocked if they break up and date or have multiple relationships throughout their lives…..thats how life works….especially in Hollywood it’s not a fairytale

      • Michele says:

        Lily, I never said they would be together forever. Rob has a very romantic notion about love and likes to bring up the fact that his mom was only 17 when his parents met and they’re still together after all these years.

        The odds are against them for sure but who knows what their future holds.

      • Mi says:

        How do you know it was Robert that first fell in love with Kristen?Because he was joking about proposal during Twilight promotion?Maybe it was Kristen that felt something more to him and broke up with Michael as soon as she figured out that Rob is a single and it is better to be with him than with Michael?Maybe she cheated on Michael with Robert and then broke up.We don’t know anything how R@K’s relationship has started.We can judge her with her actions,and she proved with her affair that she is able to be in sexual(without love)relationship with a married man.

  36. Dana says:

    But it is nice to know that the classic love letter is not dead as Kristen penned one for Rob – according to Hollywood Life ;-)

  37. yup says:

    I could just see Kstew writing that letter. As someone had mentioned the following:

    “Dear Rob, I didn’t mini cooper anyone today. I promise. Hugs n Kisses. Your Trampire, Kristen”. PS: “momentary indiscretions” are allowed right?

  38. M says:

    Kristen made the first move on Rob on the Twilight set. She knew that he liked her and she was very smitten.

  39. Saddie says:

    The mini cooper event sure was worth tons of free PR for 7 months. I found it strange that all online media pushed her affair hard during BD 2 junket but by then who cared? Whatever happens on film sets stays on set primarily because everyone is always bed hopping. Affairs get started while filming to fill in for the actors partner – why go without daily sex just because your steady isn’t around. I think RS/LR marriage was long over before shooting snow white, so the plan was setup to milk whatever press could be created for all parties. The affair went public in July now it’s Feb. 7 months later, people are still talking. I think Kristen would have a hard time finding another man in Rob who will provide her as much media attention as Rob. It will be interesting to see what happens over the next year bwt KS & RP. KS could never permanently hook up with RS because he’s not going to promote her career which is all important.

    • Dana says:

      Why on earth do people think the affair could have been PR???
      I just don’t get it. Kristen and Rob lost a lot of weight, Kristen lost projects, she is hated, called the trampire, doesn’t she want to be seen as serious actress instead of the trampire who had this Mini Cooper affair? Would any woman agree to be humiliated like Liberty even if more people know her name now? She already had been a successful model and it had been her choice to work less.

      • KS says:

        The only way Kstew will drop Robert now if he stops enhancing her image & promoting her career. Just by being with him she gets a lot of press which she loves. It probably pisses her off that he doesn’t constantly talk about her during interviews, or stare at her at events like he used to. Robert is actively not giving her good press. Poor Ruth now has to actually earn her pay.

      • rock says:

        it’s all staged, from beginning to end.they specially lose weight.this divorce between Sanders and Liberty specially issued only now, even though they no longer live together, but in order for everything to be very believable, she filed for divorce.truth about all of this carefully hidden, but there are people who know the whole truth about this trick.Rob is afraid that the truth will come out , because he knew everything from the beginning, so he will continue to play in caring boyfriend.
