Kristen Stewart was spotted this week in Los Angeles wearing former boyfriend Robert Pattinson's shirt while Pattinson was en route to the MTV VMAs. Stewart was photographed at Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday with a white T-shirt that read "IRIE" in large black font. Pattinson was first seen wearing the same shirt in July 2011, according to the Daily Mail.
Stewart has been in the news lately because all signs point toward her making her first public appearance since news broke of the cheating scandal that broke up the "Twilight" stars' relationship. Stewart was photographed cuddling up with "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders while still living with Pattinson. She's set to appear at the Toronto Film Festival this month to help promote her film version of the Jack Kerouac novel "On the Road."
The Daily Mail reports that Stewart has been a wreck in the time leading up to her appearance at the "On the Road" premiere. She's reportedly suffered sleepless nights and is still upset over her affair with Sanders.
"She really hopes that the critics are kind to her when it comes to the reviews and they don't judge her on her personal life," a source told Radar Online. "Kristen's worried that because [the movie] opens the festival, a lot is expected of it and just prays that it's well received."
The source also said that Stewart has taken up an interest in spirituality and philosophy, specifically the teachings of Gandhi. The decision to wear Pattinson's shirt seems to confirm that theory as Urban Dictionary defines "Irie" as "to be at total peace with your current state of being, the way you feel when you gave no worries."
Nor is it the first time Stewart was photographed wearing Pattinson's clothing post-breakup. In the past she was busted wearing Pattinson's Baltimore Orioles hat and even was brazen enough to wear his Los Angeles Dodgers hat while driving around Los Angeles with Sanders in the passenger seat.
As the reports and clothing coincidences add up, some fans are starting to wonder if Stewart is dressing in her former beau's clothes for attention. With the firestorm of media coverage that's discussed the young star, the questions remains why she'd keep wearing his clothes while knowing the paparazzi will take pictures of her everywhere she goes.
People close to Stewart have reported to multiple media outlets that she's still upset over cheating on Pattinson, leading her fans to wonder if wearing his hat and shirt in one of her few public appearances could be a plea to woo Pattinson back.
