This makes me so sad, but to be fair, I’m sure it makes poor Robert Pattinson even sadder. I bet he’s just sitting quietly at home, sipping tea and possibly writing heartbroken poetry because the love of his whole life cheated on him with some director. And of course, this whole thing hasn’t been confirmed or denied yet (and you know it won’t be, this is the couple who didn’t even publicly acknowledge their relationship for years, they’re not going to comment on every rumor, true or not), but it is in People.
The relationship between Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson has been rocked by the revelation that the actress had a brief fling with a married director, sources tell PEOPLE.
“Kristen is absolutely devastated,” says one source. “It was a mistake and a complete lapse in judgment.”
The hookup with Stewart’s Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders occurred recently, the source says.
“She wasn’t having an affair with Rupert. It was just a fleeting moment that shouldn’t have happened,” says the source. “She never meant to hurt anyone. She’s a good person who just made a bad choice.”
A rep for Sanders, who is married and has two children, could not be reached for comment. A rep for Stewart had no comment.
The fact that this is in People along with the fact that Kristen’s rep wouldn’t comment makes me believe that it could be true, and I just think that’s so sad. Robert Pattinson always seems like such a sweetheart, and to think that he could possibly be hurting right now is just pitiful. Oh god, I sound like a crazy Twihard, don’t I? But it’s true! I mean, remember this quote?
“I’m not interested in casual relationships, I need to know people, I’m not making an existential statement here, simply, I want a family with two or three kids.”
And this one?
“There is the idea of the saving love, I believe it. I’m not mushy but I have a romantic soul.”
And it’s not even that I think Kristen Stewart is the most awful, heinous bitch that ever happened for this, because I really don’t. I have absolutely zero experience with cheating or being cheated on, and I have no idea what happened or even how Robert Pattinson actually feels about it. But bless his poor little heart, I bet he just needs a big hug.
What do you guys think of all this?
