The fast-moving dissolution of “Twilight” stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s long relationship — seldom discussed by the couple — took an important step Thursday as we learned Pattinson had thrown in the towel.
After spending a couple of miserable days “digesting it all,” according to one of his best friends, the 26-year-old actor moved his personal belongings out of the Los Angeles home he had shared with Stewart.
A photographer caught the actress in a compromising position with Rupert Sanders, director of her film “Snow White and the Huntsman,” leading Stewart to apologize publicly to Pattinson.
“He is still in total shock,” said the source, “but Rob is a very, very proud man — and Kristen knew how he feels about remaining faithful, loyalty and commitment. … He also was horrified that she issued a public apology to him.
“It was even more surprising because the two of them had this very specific personal agreement about not ‘going public’ with their relationship, until they both agreed it was the right time. To do it this way — apologizing for cheating on him — ended up being totally unacceptable.
“As Rob told me [after Stewart released her statement], “She only had to call two people: me and Liberty [Ross, Sanders’ wife].”
In her statement, Stewart said she regretted “this momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love the most, Rob. I love him, I love, I’m so sorry.”
The source — who also claims to be very fond of Stewart — expressed doubts that Pattinson would be able to take her back. “I’m sure he will be able to forgive her — eventually. But he will never forget, and that could be a big stumbling block to him letting her back into his personal life.”
There are rumors of even more embarrassing photos that could be lurking out there, perhaps proving her “indiscretion” was not merely “momentary.”
