Two of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors have rekindled their romance and are reportedly set to wed in the coming months. The couple, who were last seen together at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, have spent the past three months strengthening their bond and are determined to make their relationship work. Here are the key facts about their new romance.
It Was Complicated Before
Their romance was complicated before it even began. In 2009, while Twilight was dominating the box office, Stewart began dating actor Rupert Sanders, who appears in the movie alongside Stewart’s character Bella. Shortly after, they decided to wed, but the romance was doomed from the start. The couple had very different personal and professional lives, and their hectic schedules didn’t help the scenario either.
According to reports, they remained civil toward one another during their brief marriage in 2010, but they continued to have a complicated relationship. They were only together for three months before they decided to call it quits.
It’s Been Three Months Since Their Last Spat
Since their breakup, things have remained relatively quiet between the actress and the director. In fact, Stewart went a full year without publicly criticizing Pattinson, choosing instead to focus on her work. In March 2014, Stewart made her first post-pregnancy appearance in four years at the premiere of the film Soderbergh Is Dead. Since then, she’s kept a low profile, rarely appearing in public and shunning interviews.
Pattinson, on the other hand, hasn’t been idle. In addition to spending time with his son, he has made several high-profile appearances, participating in interviews, attending premieres, and supporting Stewart on the red carpet. In an attempt to mend fences and patch up their differences, they made a joint appearance at the 2015 Golden Globes in January. Aside from that, not much is known about their relationship since then.
No Rumors Of Divorce
Although they were never legally married, Stewart and Pattinson sometimes found themselves in court, as both have been the subject of divorce rumors throughout their relationship. These rumors surfaced in 2013, as the couple were accused of having an affair and using performance-enhancing drugs. The accusations stemmed from a May 2012 paparazzi photo that appeared to show the duo kissing.
They were first met through friend of a friend when Rob was 20 years old and Stewart was 18. They began dating in 2005 and went public with their relationship in 2009, one year after the Twilight films were first released. However, despite these rumors, they have denied having an affair and have spoken out against the use of performance-enhancing drugs in sports.
They Want To Make It Work
Even before the recent reconciliation, Stewart and Pattinson were determined to make their relationship work. After ending their marriage in 2010, they began living together and remained committed to each other even when pursuing other relationships. They decided to take their time going through the dating process, ensuring that they made the right decision for their relationship and committed to spending the rest of their lives together.
In an attempt to stay committed to each other, Stewart and Pattinson have been circumspect about what has been shared about their relationship in the press. Although they have never hidden their affection for one another, they have chosen to be slow to engage with the media. The couple have said that they want to enjoy their relationship without distractions, choosing to wait until they are comfortable enough in their new relationship to disclose its details.
