God bless Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Or should I say, bless their breakup. I could eat this rich buffet of Twihard Dramz for weeks. I’ve been wondering why the tabloids hadn’t been issuing multiple stories a day about the Robsten Breakup, and now I know why – they were saving all of the drama for this week’s tabloids. Go here and here to read some previous post-split analysis on the split. And now we have even more information. Bullet points!
*LaineyGossip just did an epic post on what’s happening behind-the-scenes with the Robsten breakup and how they’re both playing it in the media. Go here to read her take. The basic gist is that Rob has been different ever since Kristen cheated on him and that he’s been playing the “less availability” game while Kristen has been trying to “prove” herself to him ever since. There’s also drama about Kristen wanting to party and have fun and be a burned-out child actor and Rob is over it, although he likes to party too. It’s an interesting piece.
*The Sun says that Rupert Sanders is still in the picture enough to text Kristen, and Rob found some of Rupert’s texts on his birthday and that was the final straw. A source claims Rob is “extremely angry and upset. No matter how many times she calls or texts, friends say he’s had enough. After everything that happened and the hurt she caused, he’s furious she’d be back in touch with him, even if she is saying it’s completely innocent… It does look like this time it’s over for good. He simply can’t trust her.”
* Hollywood Life’s insider claims Rob had threatened to move out before and Kristen never took him seriously: “I don’t think Kristen took Rob seriously when he threatened to move out, but apparently he wasn’t kidding… Rob has not moved out of Kristen’s house 100%. He still has some stuff there. They pretty much haven’t seen each other since Saturday… Rob really wants to focus on his next movie project now and needs time to just get away from all of the drama. Right now work is his priority.”
*The Robsten breakup takes the cover of Us Weekly this week and Lainey says that Us Weekly’s sources claim: “Usually they would have a Twilight film to bring them back together,” but now that Twilight is over, it’s really the end: “They both have projects that will take them away from each other for months. If he can’t trust her, it’s impossible.”
Would you like my take on all of this drama? I’ll admit it, I’m more forgiving of Rob and if I have to choose a side, I’m Team Sparkles. I think he’s basically a good guy (bordering on a total doormat) and I think he genuinely loved her. I think he had every right to be angry with her last year and I hoped that he would dump her then because… seriously, what’s the point of working through those issues when you know both of you aren’t in it for the long haul? At some point someone has to step up and say “Let’s be real about this. It isn’t working.” And I think that’s what Rob just did, at long last.
…But I do think there’s more drama to come. Because at the end of the day, I do think there was a tipping point, a straw that broke the Twihard Camel’s back. Did Rob find out that Kristen is still in contact with Rupert Sanders? Or did something else happen? We’ll soon find out.
