It was Kristen Stewart‘s 23rd birthday last week, and to celebrate, on-again boyfriend Robert Pattinson apparently decided it was a good opportunity to hand over a precious family heirloom: his grandmother’s pearl ring. Apparently he didn’t bother to put it in a box or leave a card or anything, he just wrapped some tissue around it and slipped it through her mailbox, which is a surefire way to get something thrown in the trash, in my books.
Anyway, here’s the scoop from OK Magazine:
“Rob gave Kristen his grandmother’s treasured pearl ring,” a source said.
“He just casually wrapped it in tissue, put it in an envelope and slipped it into her mailbox. No note, no words, just the ring. It was a huge statement on Rob’s part symbolising his full forgiveness of Kristen and his renewed trust in her future.”
Pattinson also bought Stewart a number of other gifts, including a pen worth $53,000 to add to her collection.
The insider added: “There was the latest chain and bracelet set from Versace, and a Hermès silk scarf.
“He also managed to get hold of an original vinyl copy of her favorite Van Morrison song, ‘Madame George’.”
There are so many things to “LOL” and “WTF?” about here. First of all, a $53,000 pen? I begrudge spending $1.99 on a pack of Bics. Second of all, ‘Madame George’ is KStew’s favourite Van Morrison song? ‘Beside You’ is a way better track on Astral Weeks, but to each her own, I guess.
This story is probably total bullshit anyway, and KStew doesn’t really seem like the diamonds and pearls type (?D to the I to the A to the M…?), but whatever.
