In yet another disappointing turn of events for Twilight fans, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have ended their two-year relationship. According to Us Weekly, the couple called it quits after months of dating. More details:

The Break Up

The news comes as a shock to fans of the Twilight franchise, who were brimming with hope that the famous on-screen couple might finally end their three-part mystery. After all, the actors’ off-screen chemistry was undeniable, and their dedication to each other was inspiring. That dedication was clear in the way they handled the media spotlight, always keeping their focus on one another and deflecting attention away from themselves. The dedication was also clear in their work: They crafted an incredible body of storytelling in the Twilight films, and that body of work will never be ignored or forgotten.

The unexpected announcement means that the already busy actor’s dating life is about to become even more complicated. Before the split with Stewart, Pattinson was already starring in a new film, Mad Max: Fury Road. That film is due to hit theaters September 15, and it seems inevitable that other notable leading ladies will emerge. Who will be the femme fatale of the series now that Stewart has exited the picture?

Why They Broke Up

It’s still a mystery as to why the on-screen couple called it quits after two years of dating. Perhaps they grew exhausted from the intense public scrutiny that came with being a celebrity couple. Perhaps they drifted apart creatively, with Robert Pattinson moving forward with his career while Kristen Stewart took a step back. Perhaps they simply wanted to be together as a family – which is amazing in and of itself, given their hectic schedules. Whatever the reason, this is deeply disappointing news for Twilight fans, who had hoped that the couple would one day find the happiness that they craved.

For her part, Stewart is already focusing on her health and well-being. Last December, she revealed that she’d been diagnosed with Lupus, an auto-immune disease. In an effort to remain as active as possible and combat the effects of the disease, Stewart has been exploring holistic ways to heal herself. She’s been vegan for quite some time already, and it seems that she’s been practicing a mostly vegan lifestyle since diagnosis. In fact, she’s credited the change in her health and well-being to a plant-based diet and lifestyle.

Next Chapter

For her part, Pattinson has remained relatively quiet throughout the two-year relationship, sharing very few details about his private life. For his part, Stewart has spoken openly about seeking balance in her life, and fans await the couple’s next big move with interest.

Whether the former couple stays together or splits up remains to be seen. Nevertheless, it seems that this chapter of the story is finally coming to an end. For Twilight fans, it’s been an agonizing wait, but it was all worth it in the end. As hard as it is to believe, this was all just a dream come true for the legions of fans who embraced the Twilight franchise and its leading man. More details to come as they become available, I promise. Until then, this has been your faithful messenger.
