They play vampire lovers on screen – but it looks like the sun may have set on their real-life affair. Yep, the odd couple – Robert Pattinson and girlfriend Kristen Stewart – are believed to have split.
Or, in showbiz speak, they’re “on a break”. Right.
Apparently all the life’s been sucked out of the Twilight stars’ relationship, and they’ve been on the rocks since February at least.
At the weekend, K-Stew had been expected to attend the Country Music Awards in Las Vegas with her lover. They both had time off but, as with January’s Golden Globe Awards, R-Patz turned up on his own.
The pair are currently filming the final instalment of the Twilight saga, Breaking Dawn, in Vancouver. But Robert has been away from the set on a busy promotional tour for his flick with Reese Witherspoon, Water for Elephants.
Last night a studio source said: “Things have been a bit rocky for a while. They both have hectic work schedules, Rob in particular at the moment, and their phone calls were getting fewer and further between. They started to only see each other on set and began to drift apart until a general apathy developed. “The excuses why they couldn’t meet up basically got weaker and weaker, and Rob figured they should officially cool things off and have some time to figure out what they each want.
“There have been a few tears but the pair remain friendly. Kristen is hopeful of a reconciliation once Rob has finished promotion for his latest movie. But as things stand, they’re on a break and just mates.”
Last night, a spokesperson for teen heartthrob actor Robert declined to comment on the split.
The couple first separated back in October 2009, and again last year, and even when they were together on the red carpet, they always looked seriously glum.
Hopefully now they’ll both start to Twilighten up for a change
