The tumultuous breakup of Twilight stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson after Stewart was snapped canoodling with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sands has been one of the biggest gossip stories of the summer, and now it is being reported that the on-the-outs pair are battling over who gets to keep custody of Pattinson’s puppy.
In happier times, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were co-parents to dog Bear, but now that the couple aren’t speaking, Bear’s future has become a point of contention. Gossip site RadarOnline explains that the famous couple adopted Bear together, but that Pattinson feels the companionship of his canine is necessary to mend his broken heart.
The site spoke to a Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson insider, who reveals that the doggie drama is serious business:
“After Rob moved his things out of their Los Angeles home, he then told Kristen he wanted Bear… She was heartbroken – they adopted Bear together and she always felt that he was their little baby.”
The spy continues:
“But Rob was so hurt by Kristen’s actions he decided that he wants the dog to help him get over what happened. After all, a dog is a man’s best friend and Bear is such a good companion… However, Kristen won’t give up Bear in a hurry. She helped Rob save Bear from Parvo disease, which nearly took its life when it was a puppy.”
The insider explains that the couple can’t come to an agreement over Bear:
“She wants joint custody – and it could get a little messy.”
Should Robert Pattinson get custody of the dog instead of Kristen Stewart after her apparent betrayal?
