Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Living Together: Report
On September 26, 2012, Us Weekly, the publication that first broke the story regarding the Stewart/Sanders affair that put a swift end to Pattinson’s and Stewart’s relationship, reported that the couple have not only reconciled, but that Pattinson has moved into Stewart’s home.
“They are living together and have reconciled,” an insider stated to the magazine.
Pattinson and Stewart previously lived together but both moved out of their home following the relationship’s demise. It is unclear where the couple is living. At this time, representatives for neither Pattinson nor Stewart have confirmed the report. Pattinson and Stewart have yet to speak publicly about their relationship status, nor have they publicly stated they have reconciled or are living together.
Stewart did say in an earlier interview that she and Pattinson were “totally fine” giving many the indication the couple were on the road to reconciliation.
Conspiracy Theories Surrounding Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s Break-up
It should be pointed out that there have been multiple conspiracy theories surrounding Pattinson and Stewart indicating that the couple’s private lives are just that and what is playing out in the media is nothing more than a promotional play for moviegoers.
There is widespread belief that when a teen or pop idol is publicly linked romantically, he or she may lose their marketability, especially in films where they appear solo. For instance, it is highly marketable for the stars of “The Twilight Saga” to have a relationship off-screen as it promotes the film. If one of those stars, however, attempts to break into another film role, such as one that involves sex-scenes with another actor or actress, or even a nude or topless scene, fans may be dismayed and turn against the film.
Both Stewart and Pattinson have forayed into more adult-themed acting roles that coincide with the timing of the couple’s break-up. A break-up before the premiere of films such as “Cosmopolis” and Stewart’s upcoming “On the Road” fits in nicely for fans that are used to seeing the “Twilight” couple and may think of them as innocent teenagers. Creating a “bad-girl” image for Stewart helps her marketability, especially as she addresses more adult themes in “On the Road” that is set for an October 2012 UK release date and December 21, 2012 US release.
Some are predicting there will be a grand reunion between Pattinson and Stewart accompanied by numerous photos showing the couple kissing, holding hands, and displaying all manner of candy-sweet public displays of affection shortly before the premiere of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn 2” on November 16, 2012.
This isn’t unheard of in Hollywood. One of the most notorious cases of interfering with a celebrity’s personal life in order to promote their career is Rock Hudson. Hudson was a closeted-gay man whom was also one of Hollywood’s leading heartthrobs. People Magazine reported on several incidents involving Hudson, Hollywood and prearranged relationships meant solely for the public’s eye.
Actress Mamie Van Doren spoke about going on dates with Rock Hudson- dates that Universal Studios prearranged to promote Hudson’s image. “Behind the doors of Universal, where he was a contract player, “we all knew Rock was gay, but it never made any difference to us. Universal invested a lot of money in Rock, and it was important for his image to remain that of a lady-killer,” she told People.
If prearranged dates aren’t enough to convince someone that Hollywood “creates” relationships in order to promote a brand…ummm…actor, how about the fact that Hudson married his agent’s secretary in another “arranged” ceremony.
People continued to say in their report, “As Hudson neared 30, a wedding was expected as well. In the mid-’50s the scandal sheet Confidential threatened to expose Hudson’s private life. Instead, the studio cut a deal that traded information on Rock for information about a lesser-known actor who was gay. On Nov. 9, 1955, in a hastily arranged ceremony, Hudson married his agent’s secretary, Phyllis Gates.
“She was not the love of his life. It was an arrangement,” says actress Arlene Dahl, who had also been encouraged to date Hudson after they appeared together in Bengal Brigade. Recalls Hudson’s lifetime friend Jim Matteoni, who was best man at the wedding: “We met Phyllis for the first time when he was going to marry her. Roy called up at two in the morning and said, ‘I’ve made arrangements for you to be on a 6 o’clock flight. Keep it secret.’
“We went to a courthouse two or three minutes before it closed—so that the reporters had already left. Then we went to a hotel where a cottage suite had been taken. After the ceremony, we each had to call one of the columnists to let them all know at the same time.” The small party ended the evening at an appropriately named restaurant, Talk of the Town.”
Is it possible that Pattinson and Stewart have been in an arranged relationship solely to promote “The Twilight Saga?” Anything is possible, and there are many fans who would be devastated to think that Hollywood has pulled the wool over their eyes and that America’s favorite Twi-hard couple aren’t a couple at all.
The idea of participating in a fake relationship or even prearranged marriage to promote a career seems unacceptable to many. Most relationships are built on issues of trust, friendship and love. Pretending to be a couple just to sell movie tickets is a move that many find simply offensive.
Would you be devastated to learn that Pattinson and Stewart were never in a relationship but that Hollywood has arranged it as a promotional tactic?
How can Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson Restore Trust and Move Forward
It might seem strange to discuss the possibility that Stewart and Pattinson were never truly a couple then discuss how they can move forward in their relationship. The truth is, the public will never know exactly what is transpiring on the “Robsten” scene. Well, that’s not entirely accurate. If their relationship has been staged, there is a good chance that decades from now someone will come clean and tell the tale. If, however, the romance truly did blossom between the two, and reports of first love on the set are accurate, then Pattinson and Stewart will need to address their trust issues the same as any other couple struggling to get past infidelity.
The first and simple rule that any couple must follow when restoring trust is to utilize patience. It takes time to restore trust and repair the damage that infidelity can cause in a relationship.
According to a report by Sugar Scape on September 25, 2012, Pattinson is having difficulty trusting Stewart and has reconciled with her for a one month trial period.
Representatives for neither Stewart or Pattinson have verified these reports.
