Not only has Robert Pattinson moved out of the Los Angeles home he shared with Kristen Stewart, but the “Twilight” actress has left the house as well.
“It’s all about being on neutral territory while she tries to win Rob back” said a Stewart intimate Saturday.
Other B.Z. sources confirm the very private couple — currently estranged due to Stewart’s fling with her married “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders — are talking. Stewart reportedly is doing everything she can to convince Pattinson that her publicly admitted cheating will never happen again, and is begging him to give her a second chance.
