Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson met on the set of the Twilight series, fell in love, and became reluctant tabloid fodder. Now that the couple has broken up in a very public scandal, their reunion conveniently comes just as buzz for the final Twilight film is building.
Coincidence? TMZ thinks not. The online celebrity magazine is casting doubt on the timing of their split, saying that it seemed fishy that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were at an L.A. restaurant last night exactly one month before The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 premieres.
“It’s feeling like a total set-up,” the magazine noted.
TMZ didn’t have any hard evidence that the Kristen Stewart-Robert Pattinson reunion — and possibly break-up, too — was staged, but simply raised the questions. Readers seemed to agree, with a snap poll at the end of the short article finding that 52 percent believe they are not together and another 27 percent believe they never split up. The remaining 21 percent believed they genuinely reconciled.
This is not the first suggestion that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson faked their break-up. They split after pictures emerged of Stewart having an affair with Rupert Sanders, the married director of her movie Snow White and the Hunstman.
After spending a few weeks apart, the pair got back together in September, but even then there were rumors that it was all staged. An online video took a closer look at the alleged cheating photos, claiming that they had been manipulated. The theory gained traction on the internet, being reported by Crushable writer Jenni Maier and repeated by The Huffington Post, claims that the players in the cheating scandal came together to orchestrate the plot, complete with fake pictures of the affair.
Do you think Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have genuinely reconciled, or is it all being staged?
