Apparently things aren’t going well–at all.
Sources are saying that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have both pulled out of the upcoming final Twilight fan conventions, and while it’s hardly surprising, there’s other news attached to the announcement as well—Taylor Lautner won’t be there, either.
In a move that will surprise no one, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have opted out of attending the final four official “Twilight” conventions. The conventions are set for the weekends of August 25 (San Antonio), September 29 (Detroit), October 5 (Parsippany, NJ), and November 3 (Los Angeles).
Fans were hoping that at least one of the stars would attend the final convention in November, but Pattinson and Stewart, along with costar Taylor Lautner, have opted out of attending.
“The passion and dedication of Twilight fandom has been amazing and we’re out to throw one last giant convention, a final gathering to see old friends that have made up the Twilight family,” Creation Entertainment says. “Although Rob, Kristen and Taylor will not be with us this time out we will have a super line-up of other Twilight stars and the weekend will be filled with special events, movie prop and costume displays, contests, panels, auctions, parties, exclusive merchandise, music and much more, including some surprises!”
With fans and the media still desperately seeking a conclusive statement from Pattinson about his relationship with Stewart, many are curious as to how the “Breaking Dawn Part 2″ promotional tour will differ from previous years. Normally, in support of the film, the three leads have traveled the globe doing press appearances. This year, things may be dialed back significantly. Luckily, most promotional photoshoots for the film have already been taken care of.
I guess the only really surprising thing about the whole mess is that Taylor Lautner is going to be a no-show, too. I mean, is he, too, really all that broken up over Kristen and Robert? Or is his publicist forcing him to drop out in order to make it seem like the three main characters just aren’t attending, and it’s complete coincidence that it happens right in the middle of the Kristen-Rob drama? Because come on. We’re just not that dumb, I’m sorry.
I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again—the red carpet events and press junkets for Breaking Dawn Part 2 are going to be amazing, guys.
