Why did Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart break up? Stewart & Pattinson split in May 2013 after four years of on-again, off-again dating. The breakup came a year after Stewart was accused of cheating on Pattinson with her Snow White & the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. The accusations came after Stewart was photographed kissing Sanders—who was married to model Liberty Ross at the time, with whom he shares two children—in Los Angeles. “It seemed lượt thích they couldn’t get enough,” a photographer told Us Weekly at the time. Two days later, Stewart was seen with Pattinson on a date in Los Angeles. “They were really mellow,” a source told Us Weekly at the time. “They’re a đáng yêu couple.” The insider continued, “She leaned against him.” That same week, Pattinson và Stewart also attended the 2012 Teen Choice Awards together, where they were filmed holding hands.

The Teen Choice Awards came two days before Us Weekly published photos of Sanders & Stewart’s PDA from earlier that week. Soon after the photos were published, Sanders’ wife at the time tweeted “Wow” before deactivating her Twitter account. A day later, Stewart issued a public statement, in which she apologized to Pattinson and called the photos with Sanders a “momentary indiscretion.” “I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close khổng lồ me and everyone this has affected,” the statement read. “This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love & respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.” Sanders, for his part, also issued his own statement in which he apologized lớn his wife and children for the “pain” he caused. “I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family,” he said. “My beautiful wife và heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.”

A source told Us Weekly at the time that Pattinson was “really depressed” after learning of the infidelity. “He doesn’t know what khổng lồ do. He doesn’t know if he should forgive her or not,” the insider said. The source continued, “Rob’s whole experience of coming into fame was experienced with Kristen. This is going khổng lồ be really tough. Nobody knows if they’ll stay together at this point.” Another source added, “Rob is beyond devastated. He’s so heartbroken. He’s shocked she could hurt him & humiliate him this way.” A third source also reported that Stewart was “devastated” by the situation. “She’s very angry at herself. She’s really not blaming anyone but herself,” the source said.

Two months later, in September 2012, a source told Us Weekly that Stewart và Pattinson “had a dramatic makeup” & were back together. “They’re working it out,” the insider said. “He’s still in love with her.” The couple went on to lớn walk the red carpet together at the premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 in November 2012.

Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can’t predict. It’s like that scene in Doubt, where he’s talking about how khổng lồ take back gossip? They throw all those feathers from a pillow into the sky và you’ve got to lớn go và collect all the feathers.” In an interview on The Howard Stern Show in 2019, Stewart called Pattinson her “first love.” We were together for years, that was my first ,” she said. When asked if she would’ve married Pattinson if he proposed, Stewart responded, “I don’t know. I wanted to… Yeah, no, I’ve never been in…I don’t know. I’m not a super duper traditionalist, but at the same time… every relationship I’ve ever been in, I thought that was it. I’ve never really been the most casual person.” She also told Stern that it was “weird” lớn talk about her relationship with Pattinson because she’s never had full permission khổng lồ “say what happened.” “Because I was so self-conscious about seeming lượt thích an attention-seeker,” Stewart said before adding. “He’s the best.”

In an interview with thành phố new york Times Magazine in 2016, Stewart opened up about how pressure from the truyền thông media and fans affected her và Pattinson’s relationship. “People wanted me and Rob khổng lồ be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product,” she said. “It wasn’t real life anymore and that was gross lớn me. It’s not that I want khổng lồ hide who I am or hide anything I’m doing in my life. It’s that I don’t want to become a part of a story for entertainment value.” Stewart echoed the same thoughts in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK in 2019. “When me and Rob were together, we did not have an example to go by,” she said. “So much was taken from us that, in trying lớn control one aspect, we were just like, ‘No, we will never talk about it. Never. Because it’s ours.’” Stewart also addressed rumors about her sexuality at the time after her relationships Stella Maxwell, St. Vincent & other women. “I think I just wanted to enjoy my life. And that took precedence over protecting my life, because in protecting it, I was ruining it,” she said. “I just think we’re all kind of getting lớn a place where – I don’t know, evolution’s a weird thing – we’re all becoming incredibly ambiguous. And it’s this really gorgeous thing.” Stewart also told

I hated it that details of my life were being turned into a commodity and peddled around the world. But considering I had so many eyes on me, I suddenly realized affects a greater number of people than just me. It was an opportunity khổng lồ surrender a bit of what was mine, to make even one other person feel good about themselves.” She continued, “When I was dating Rob, the public were the enemy — and that is no way to lớn live. It wasn’t this grand statement, ‘I was so confused!
