Kristen Stewart Cheats on Robert Pattinson & Issues a Public Apology

Could it be true? Us Weekly and People Magazine are both reporting that Twilight star Kristen Stewart had a fleeting affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders.

Yep, it is true. Both Stewart and Sanders have issued public apologies. See them at the bottom of this article.

The magazines claimed sources close to Stewart said she was devastated and made a bad judgement call. The real question is, will Pattinson forgive her indiscretion and be willing to move on from it?

Fans of the Twilight saga are certainly hoping so!

Stewart and Pattinson have been going strong since the filming of the first Twilight movie back in 2008. Their relationship was one of the worst kept secrets in Hollywood, and Stewart herself only recently confirmed the relationship last month in an interview with Elle magazine.

The alleged indiscretion with Sanders (a 41-year-old married man with two young children) apparently took place as recently as July 17, according to the photographer who snapped pictures of their “marathon makeout session.” The photographer is also quoted by Us Weekly as saying “the two couldn’t get enough of each other.”

The story is even more shocking considering Pattinson and Stewart appeared happy and content with each other Sunday night at the Teen Choice Awards.

US Weekly’s new issue with the exclusive photos hit stands this Friday.

The final installment in the “Twilight” series will hit theaters November 16 of this year.
