So you’ve fallen in love with Rob Pattinson, and now you want to know everything there is to know about him. That’s what led you here, right? You’re new to the whole celebrity thing, and you want to find out as much as you can about one of the biggest break-ups in recent pop culture history. Good plan! Let’s get into it.
The Demise of the Relationship
Let’s start from the beginning, shall we? Rob Pattinson and his companions were out on a low-key dinner date in Paris when Kristen Stewart called off their engagement. It was a shock to the public and the couple’s legion of fans, as they’d been showing off their happy, healthy union to fans everywhere for more than two years. The split revealed a lot about the couple, and the world was better for it. Most notably, it revealed everything there is to know about Rob’s dark side and Kristen’s courage in facing what they’d become.
The Dark Side
So what is Rob’s dark side? There are the usual tabloid sensationalism tropes that you’d expect from any celebrity couple’s breakup: heavy makeup use, crazy parties, and all that that entails. There were also darker elements to the story that didn’t get as much play in the media. For example, what happened to Stewart’s pet bunny Bo Peep while she was dealing with the fallout from the break-up? Did Rob physically or mentally abuse her? Those are questions that the general public were asking, yet the media decided to avoid revealing too much information about. That, in a nutshell, is why Rob’s dark side is so fascinating to everyone who knows or is in the vicinity of Hollywood – because he is the living embodiment of the culture that created him. Here’s an individual who came from nothing and rose to fame and fortune beyond his wildest dreams. Now that he’s found happiness, what will Rob do with the excess wealth and fame that he’s accumulated?
Let’s talk about the excesses for a moment. The first few months after the split from Stewart were pretty tame. Rob took a step back from the limelight and focused on being a father. Then, in early 2018, he seemed to have gotten back into the crazy habit that helped make him famous in the first place. He began throwing crazy parties at his Los Angeles home, inviting A-list celebrities and inviting them to play games and get drunk with him. This was around the same time that he began seeing an unnamed woman. That same week, he held a party at the Hollywood Bowl where he introduced the world to his new girlfriend, who was seated front and center on the main stage. It was the start of something wonderful for Rob.
What the Future Holds
What’s amazing about the situation is that we’re not quite sure what’s going to happen next. The media have decided to stay away from giving too much away, so we don’t know if Rob and Kristen will get back together again. We also don’t know if Rob will continue to see the other woman, or whether he’ll find a new partner. There is, however, one thing that we do know for sure: it’s going to be a wild ride. And that’s what makes it so fascinating.
So there you have it. Two people who were as in love as anyone could be and an entire industry trying to keep them apart. It seems like everyone involved is just waiting to see what happens next. Who’s going to blink first?
