Twi-hard fans everywhere have been in a severe state of mourning, as their beloved Robsten are experiencing turmoil in their relationship. It is no secret now that Kristen Stewart was caught in the act cheating on her long-time boyfriend, Robert Pattinson with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders earlier this week, as reported by E! News. The details of the alleged momentary affair have been fuzzy, with rumors flying from various sources close to all three involved.
Below is a timeline of events leading up to and after news of the affair went viral.
July 17: Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders were caught by paparazzi in a public and steamy make-out session. This took place in Los Angeles, in broad daylight. According to a photographer, “it seemed like they couldn’t get enough.”
July 19: Stewart and Pattinson were seen on a date displaying PDA and looking cozy.
June 20: Stewart was seen out with her father in Malibu, sporting one of Pattinson’s shirts,
July 22: Stewart and Pattinson attended the 2012 Teen Choice Awards and walked out on stage holding hands. The duo gave their surf boards to the audience and thanked them for the past five years.
July 23: Rumors began to circulate about various celebrity gossip outlets preparing to publish a story that Stewart was caught cheating.
July 24: Photos of Stewart and Sanders’s rendezvous in Los Angeles went viral. Sanders’ wife tweeted “Wow” during the day, only to later deactivate her Twitter.
July 25: The actress released a statement first, saying, “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.” Sanders later issued his own statement. “I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.”
July 26: Sources close to Pattinson say he’s distraught beyond belief and has gone into hiding, having felt betrayed by Stewart and embarrassed by her public apology. Those close to Stewart say she is hoping they can get through this.
Sanders, 41, has two children aged seven and five and is married to British Vogue model Liberty Ross.
In early July, Ross spoke candidly about troubling times in her relationship with Sanders, and how they are at a good point in both their lives and their marriage. “Everything feels so amazing now. We rode through the really hard times and we stuck it out.”
Sanders was also interviewed in June, and described his relationship with his wife in an interview saying:
“I just knew I was going to marry her. It took a while. I didn’t propose to her for seven years because I felt that she was too young and she’d resent me if she hadn’t lived. But it was good because I was off making commercials and she was modeling, so we had quite a free—not sexually free, we weren’t swinging or having other relationships…I hope!—but we both lived very independent lives, then we’d meet up. It kept the fire burning. She’s been very supportive and she’s been a strong single mother for the last year and a half, because I haven’t been around.”
Sara from Newark says, “It’s such a shame that both parties chose to participate in this. I’m saddened for Rupert and his family and am annoyed that he would allow Kristen and the whole situation to put a crutch in a good marriage.”
Aside from rumors that Pattinson moved out of the home the couple shared, there is still no word as to whether or not Robsten will survive the scandal or if Sanders’ marriage and family will survive these devastating and foolish acts. Stay tuned for updates!
