Robsten fans can breathe a sigh of relief: All may not be lost for Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. The “Twilight” co-stars and former flames were spotted exhibiting some PDA, just weeks after rumors swirled that the couple had split up, yet again.
According to E! News, Stewart and Pattinson were seen holding hands in public at Echo Park in Los Angeles, Calif., on Thursday. Another source reportedly caught a glimpse of the supposedly estranged couple grabbing coffee together at Starbucks, HollywoodLife reported.
Stewart and Pattinson appeared to have reconciled earlier this year after paparazzi snapped photos of Stewart kissing her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders. Up until that point neither Pattinson nor Stewart had ever publicly confirmed that they were dating, but shortly after the scandal broke Stewart issued a statement apologizing for her behavior and affirming her love for Pattinson.
“I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected,” Stewart said shortly after the photographs were leaked. “This momentary indiscretion 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.”
Although concerned fans across the globe including Donald Trump urged Pattinson to move on from the scandal and find love elsewhere, the couple reportedly got back together soon afterward. All seemed well until May, when reports surfaced that the pair had split yet again. But the breakup allegedly took its toll on both parties, with Star reporting weeks later that Pattinson was “still on the rebound from Kristen and is very depressed.”
A source close to Katy Perry, a close friend of Pattinson’s, told HollywoodLife that the pop singer had been helping Pattinson cope with the breakup. “Katy has been really supportive of Rob since he and Kristen split up," the source said. She has been his main support during this whole breakup,” the source said. “Kristen has tons of friends that she can lean on, whereas most of Rob’s closest friends are in England. Rob isn’t going to hang out with Kristen’s friends anymore, so it’s like he doesn’t have Kristen in his life anymore, and that includes all of her friends.”
Despite the turbulence in his love life, Pattinson’s career seems to be doing just fine. He was recently tapped as the new face of Dior, a contract that will reportedly earn him $12 million.
