Just yesterday it has been revealed that Kristen Stewart had an affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. American magazine U.S Weekly broke the story with a front cover picture of the pair looking extremely cosy indeed. The picture has since been removed following allegations it was photo-shopped, however new pictures have emerged which show the pair embracing in her car.
Sanders is married to British Vogue model Liberty Ross, 33 and has two children, ages 5 and 7, while Kristen has been with on/off boyfriend and Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson since around 2010. A source close to the star told People magazine: “Kristen is absolutely devastated. It was a mistake and a complete lapse in judgment.”
Although no statements have been released from Sanders’ side, his wife tweeted in the aftermath of the allegations saying “Wow” and followed U.S Weekly on the site before deleting her account altogether.
Kristen Stewart has since released a statement making DIRECT REFERENCE to her relationship with Rob , something which she NEVER does and confirming the rumours are true:
“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.”
Oh dear. I wonder how R-Patz will take this. He has always counted Kristen as the only person in the industry he can trust having found himself in a difficult transition from nobody to superstar following the success of the Twilight series.
We await a statement from Rupert Sanders on the issue.
