Why Kristen Stewart Cheated on Robert Pattinson With Rupert Sanders
For one of Hollywood's most sullen, secretive celebrities, 22-year-old Kristen Stewart's bombshell apology for cheating on Robert Pattinson was shockingly emotional — and public: “This momentary indiscretion,” she said, “has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”
How ironic that Kristen’s most blatant acknowledgment of her relationship with Rob, 26, came while she was admitting to a summer tryst (in a parked car, apparently) with Rupert Sanders, 41, her Snow White and the Huntsman director, a father of two wed to a British Vogue model, Liberty Ross, 33 — who played K-Stew’s mom in Snow White.
Now Rob has moved out of their L.A. home, and Kristen seeks refuge with her family in Woodland Hills, Calif. “Rob is going through hell right now,” a friend tells OK!. “He was caught completely off-guard — he’s not sure he can ever trust her again.”
The Twilight Saga’s Edward and Bella have been young Hollywood's Golden Couple. Long intensely private, they'd started to hint at marriage and children, and in mid-July at Comic-Con, they were more affectionate than ever.
Why did Kristen stray? A recent interview offers hints: "I feel boring," she said. "I can't wait for something crazy to f****ing happy to me." Maybe Kristen was looking for trouble — but it's complicated.
