That right there is the cover of Us Weekly, featuring supposed proof that Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson, her boyfriend of three years and Twilight costar. Apparently, the paparazzi struck gold and caught Stewart in the middle of a “steamy rendezvous” with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders. We promise that–even though this is the one time it might be justified–we will not use the word “canoodling.”
No one from Stewart’s, Pattinson’s, or Sanders’ camp has come out and confirmed/denied anything, but the photo evidence is… surprisingly damning. Indeed, it looks like Stewart and Sanders are doing some kind of identifiably romantic thing together. Us Weekly also pointlessly quoted one photographer as saying, “it seemed like they couldn’t get enough.”
Sanders has two kids with wife (and awesome ’00s model) Liberty Ross. So, if the photos are to be believed and Sanders isn’t, say, checking Stewart for ticks, then that’s awful shitty of both of them. If we give Stewart the benefit of the doubt, then… well, it’s been a rough few weeks through the rumor meatgrinder for her.
Either wat, we wait breathlessly to see how Pattinson’s legion of fangirls will react.
UPDATE: Stewart has released a statement…
“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. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”
UPDATE II: Now the Sanders has apologized.
“I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. My beautiful wife and 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.”
