This week, the British actor Robert Pattinson made headlines for all the wrong reasons. In the early hours of Monday morning (October 1), police were called to his home in London due to a reported domestic incident. Officers arrived on the scene just as the 27-year-old was being taken down the stairs by his wife, Katy Perry. She confirmed in an interview that the couple are currently separated but did not elaborate on the nature of their disagreements. Reports suggest that they have been living at the location for a little over a year and have been married for two months. According to the police report, there were no visible signs of injuries. However, if you ask us, it seems like these two have been struggling with marriage problems for a while.
Why Did They Get Married In The First Place?
Although the details of their wedding remain under wraps, it is known that the Hollywood heartthrob wed the former Miss World Australia, Tom Sturridge, in a low-key ceremony at Kingston Upon Thames Register Office earlier this year. Pattinson and Sturridge have been close friends since the early aughts and reconnected on the set of Water for Woodstock in 2019. Back in 2015, it was rumored that the couple were engaged, but they denied it at the time. The actor also had a previous relationship with Perry, which was famously declared “off-Broadway” in 2013 after they broke up. The story behind their courtship is indeed quite interesting. We will discuss it in more detail below.
Pattinson’s Past Relationship With Katy Perry
You may recognize Katy Perry from her music career, but she has also appeared in films such as One Chance, Charlie’s Angels, and the upcoming Diary of a Teenage Witch. The Grammy-nominated pop singer began her acting career in 2004 and has been featured in multiple collaborations with rapper Eminem. In 2012, she released her first album, Katy Perry’s PRIME, which went on to become her first solo album to top the Billboard 200. In 2018, she recorded a duet with Ed Sheeran for his ÷ (Divide) album. Aside from acting, music, and making songs, Katy Perry is also well-known for her philanthropic work. She is the founder of the Katy Perry Foundation, which focuses on “advocacy for those affected by sexual abuse, bullying, and discrimination”.
Pattinson’s Reason For Getting Married So Soon After His Breakup With Katy Perry
After the divorce proceedings with Katy Perry ended in 2017, Robert Pattinson did not have much time to mourn the loss of his wedding dream girl. The British actor was featured in the 2018 horror film, Dead Letters, and also hosted the 2018 MTV Movie Awards. Furthermore, Pattinson has been linked to several A-list actresses, including Olivia Colman, Kate Winslet, and Sienna Miller. On the contrary, he has been open about his struggles with anxiety and depression, which have led him to consider therapy. In an interview with The Sun, Pattinson admitted that he had always wanted to be married before he turned 30. He eventually tied the knot with his 31-year-old American producer, Vanessa Paradis, on September 24, 2019. The couple met while filming the upcoming flick, The King in October. Even though marriage was a long time coming for Pattinson, he still had to deal with a lot of anxiety before the big day. He confessed that he had to take a cab to the airport to ensure that he was not late for his flight to New York City, where he was set to wed Paradis. Luckily, he made it on time.
What Happened After Their Nuptials?
After tying the knot with his 31-year-old American producer, the couple went on a honeymoon to Venice, Italy. On October 8, 2019, the newlywed pair held a press conference to announce their separation less than three months after their wedding. Even though they have not commented on the status of their marriage, it would seem that their brief union was not happy. In an exclusive interview with The Independent, Pattinson’s representative stated that the actor is “taking a break” from his wife while she focuses on her career. The rep added that the couple are committed to “working through their differences.” In a similar interview with Entertainment Tonight, Paradis stated that she is “open to anything” and would “love to work things out” with her husband. However, if you ask us, it sounds like these two have some professional responsibilities they need to address before they can move forward as a couple.
Marriage Difficulties For Pattinson And Sturridge
According to the police report filed by officers at the scene of the alleged domestic disturbance, there had been an argument between the Hollywood actors before the 911 call was made. The document states that the couple were “locked in the bedroom” and that “a knife was seen on the bedside.” Furthermore, the report continues, “[t]here were visible signs of injuries to the upper body of the male, and the female arrived at the address with minor scratches.” We can only imagine how terrifying this incident must have been for the couple’s two young sons, Riley and Jayden, who were home alone at the time. In a statement, a representative for the children denied that there had been any “injuries resulting from an altercation.” The boys’ lawyer also added that his clients “have been deeply upset and will be harmed by the incident.” While there is no official announcement yet as to whether or not the couple will get back together, their separation is very much an open question. The incident has undoubtedly put a strain on their already difficult relationship. It is fair to say that they have not been the most stable of couples. From what we have gathered, there is a lot of tension between these two and it appears that they may never truly reconcile. If you are a Pattinson or Sturridge fan, then this is certainly a relationship you will not want to miss!
