After enjoying a magical marriage for over a year, it seems that Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz have called it quits. The actor and model confirmed to E! News that they’ve finalized their separation.

While the ending may be amicable, the breakdown of their partnership was anything but. The duo’s romance was front-page news for months, and earned them the title of “It Couple” in 2017.

The press has been busy speculating about the split, with many journalists dubbing it “the great American marriage breakup.”

The Great American Marriage Breakup

It’s been a rocky road for the couple since they first met on the set of the 2016 film, Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Kravitz plays the role of Bella Swan in the final installment of the Twilight series, while Pattinson plays the role of Edward Cullen.

The two actors have been linked together since the premiere of the first Twilight film in 2008, and parlayed their chemistry into a successful Hollywood career.

However, they’ve spent a considerable amount of time apart from each other. Aside from being in two of the biggest films of all time, the actor has had several movie roles while Kravitz has stayed relatively quiet on the modeling front.

The Role of Bella in the Twilight Saga

Over the course of the last decade, Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz have established themselves as one of Hollywood’s most recognizable and loved partnerships. The two have starred in blockbusters such as Twilight and its two follow-ups; the comedy Bad Moms; and the action-adventure Ready Player One.

Kravitz was born in California and raised in Atlanta, while Pattinson was born in Scotland and grew up in England. They met while filming the Twilight sequel in 2011, and quickly became inseparable. After revealing their romance in 2015, fans quickly took to Twitter to shower the actor and model with wedding gifts.

The couple enjoyed all the perks that come with being a Hollywood power couple. They were regularly featured on the covers of several prominent magazines, including Vanity Fair and Rolling Stone. They also became a frequent subject of paparazzi attention. But all that glitters is not gold, and behind the scenes the pair had some very public spats. In 2017, they had to settle numerous lawsuits stemming from Pattinson’s abusive behavior towards Kravitz. The actor was arrested in October 2017 for allegedly assaulting Kravitz, but the charges were later dropped.

Early Origins Of The Great American Marriage Breakup

The roots of the great American marriage breakup go back a long way. Back in 2008, the Twilight franchise was just getting started, and the buzz surrounding it was unprecedented. Edward Cullen was the epitome of the perfect man, and fans clamored to see more of him and Bella. Their chemistry was undeniable, and the media doted on them as if they were royalty. Little did they know that the fairy tale they were living was far from over.

In the years that followed, Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz enjoyed a fairy tale wedding. The two were frequently spotted on romantic dates, and in 2015 they added to their collection of tabloid wedding gifts by tying the knot. At the time, they were both so absorbed by their newfound marital bliss that they said they had no interest in expanding the family anytime soon.

However, even the strongest marriage needs some time apart to decompress, and for Pattinson and Kravitz that time came in 2016. The couple worked together on the sci-fi film, Lost City of Z, and while they enjoyed each other’s company, they soon realized that their professional schedules made it difficult to spend much time together. As a result, they decided to take a break from each other’s company even though they still loved each other. It was a difficult decision, but one that benefited both of them in the long run.

Finalizing Their Breakup

The two finally decided to call it quits in October. While it’s been a tough road for them, it’s been an incredible journey. As of now, Kravitz is taking time to focus on herself and her health, and is refusing to comment on the upcoming breakup. However, it seems that Pattinson has finally found the love of his life with a 20-year-old British woman named Mia Goth. In a bizarre turn of events, the actor is even introducing her to his famous movie friends as “my new girlfriend.” The young woman is an aspiring actress who recently graduated from Oxford University. She also has two sisters named Harley and Holly, who work as fashion assistants. Goth is not a common name, and it’s not often that a 20-year-old woman finds herself married to a 66-year-old actor. There’s also the fact that Pattinson is half-Scottish, which makes him technically semi-eligible to marry a Nordic woman. But, for now, he’ll have to settle for being a husband to the wonderful and talented Mia Goth.
