This is one Hollywood reconciliation we did not see coming! After Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart‘s relationship crumbled following her cheating scandal in 2012, Twilight fans assumed they’d never see the co-stars as an item again.
But an insider tells Life & Style exclusively that the duo, who dated for four years, have “started talking all the time” since Rob ended his engagement with singer FKA twigs. “Robert and Kristen have become very close again,” the source shares. “Rob’s pals would love to see them back together.”
Even though K-Stew is currently dating model Stella Maxwell, she previously told Harper’s Bazaar UK that she could “definitely” see herself dating men again. She added in an interview with The Guardian, “You’re not confused if you’re bisexual. It’s not confusing at all. For me, it’s quite the opposite.”
The 27-year-old, who came out during an episode of Saturday Night Live earlier this year, continued, “But considering I had so many eyes on me, I suddenly realized [my private life] affects a greater number of people than just me. It was an opportunity to surrender a bit of what was mine, to make even one other person feel good about themselves… When I was dating Rob, the public were the enemy — and that is no way to live. It wasn’t this grand statement, ‘I was so confused! Now I’ve realized who I am!’ I have not been struggling. It just seemed important, and topical.”
Even though photos of Kristen kissing her married Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, ruined things with Rob five years ago, she did issue a pretty heartfelt apology at the time. “I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob,” she said. “I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.” It looks like he’s been able to forgive.
