Kristen and Robert Split
In 2012, A photograph surfaced on the internet where Stewart was seen getting intimate with her Rupert Sanders. Rupert Sanders was the director of the movie Snow White and the Huntsman, in which Stewart played the lead role. Both of them were in separate relationships at that time. Stewart was in a relationship with Pattinson, and Sanders was married to Liberty Ross at that time. It’s quite ironic how most of the outrage was pointed toward Stewart and not towards Sanders. Both the parties were equally at fault in that situation.
Stewart made a public apology stating that she was very sorry for hurting her boyfriend Pattinson and that he was the one she loved the most. Even though Pattinson was furious at first, he couldn’t help but take her back. It seems Pattinson was madly in love with her. Rupert Sander’s wife, however, didn’t feel the same way and filed for divorce. Even though the pair got back together, they fought constantly. Robert’s family was still not over the fact that Kristen cheated on him and believed that she did not deserve him. But the person who was most outraged about this was the former president of The United States, Donald Trump. He tweeted several times that Robert should not have taken Kristen back and that he should dump her. These tweets were hilarious. Kristen also joked about these tweets when she hosted SNL.
