Have Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart split up?

Rumours suggest British star dumped his girlfriend at weekend and wants to be 'just good friends'

TWILIGHT star Robert Pattinson may not have managed to forgive his errant girlfriend Kristen Stewart for her fling with director Rupert Sanders after all. There are rumours Hollywood's young ‘it' couple have split up for the second time.

The Sun says 26-year-old Pattinson "dumped" 22-year-old Stewart over the weekend following a series of arguments between the pair during their Christmas holiday in London.

Sources close to Pattinson told the paper the actor was still struggling to forgive Stewart for her affair with Sanders, the married 42-year-old director of her movie, Snow White and the Huntsman.

"She [Stewart] flew to LA and was supposed to be Rob's date for the Golden Globes, but he told her he wants to cool it off," the source said. "He loves her, but would rather go back to being good friends so they can rebuild their trust and focus on work after Twilight."

Stewart is "upset", naturally, but hopes Pattinson will eventually change his mind. Given their history, that seems entirely possible.

Pattinson is going to continue to live in LA, while Stewart says she's moving to New York where "people leave her alone".

But just when it seems to be all over for R-Patz and K-Stew, US Weekly offers a glimmer of hope. It says Pattinson did fly solo at the Golden Globes, where he handed out the award for best screenplay, but that he met up with Stewart after the awards ceremony at a party at Soho House in West Hollywood.

The shindig was organised by Globes hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and Pattinson and Stewart "hung out and stayed close for over an hour," onlookers said.

Stewart was "dressed down" in jeans and a sweatshirt, says Glamour, while Pattinson wore a Gucci dinner suit. So maybe it's their fashion sense that's incompatible. ·

Has someone of no real importance been reconciled with someone else of no real importance after the latter's fling with someone of no real importance ? Oddly enough, I neither know or care - nor, I suspect, do many others, either. A complete waste of electrons.

Unless you can quote someone other than "sources" I'm not believing a word of this "article." This same tired rumor has been circulating for several days and there is literally no truth to it that I can find. Every rag on the internet is reprinting the "sources tell us" rubbish. Let it go and move on ... just because there isn't any real news about them doesn't mean you can just make it up, does it????

Yet, you are commenting on this post. Doesn't it suggest you care even if just a little bit?

OMG I'm so over this story-line. As for Kristen being upset as you say in your reporting! I doubt that very much, she is such a self absorbed dont give a sh*t little madam, the only one she has ever cared about is herself. I used to like her tons in the early stage but now I cant stand her long chinned witchy looking dile, gracing every mag or website......please hollywood bring on some new talent, to push her aside. shes such a dick!!!!!! in fact If I were Liberty Ross I would have smacked that smug look right off her face.
