Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are no longer dating. The couple’s representatives announced the breakup on Feb. 24, 2019. Several months earlier, they had called off their engagement.
The split comes at a time when Robert Pattinson’s personal life is in the spotlight, thanks to his new relationship with Stormy Daniels. This is the American adult film star who has had multiple sexual relationships with Donald Trump and is battling his ex-wife, the actress, over a child custody case. The couple have been dating for nearly two years, although they had been photographed together as early as April 2017.
Pattinson and Stewart’s representatives said in a statement: “After two years of loving each other deeply, trust, and partnership, they have come to the mutual conclusion that they should go their separate ways. The breakup is very amicable and lovingly done. They wish each other happiness and success in future.”

In other news, Robert Pattinson has partnered with Stormy Daniels’ lawyer on a campaign to legalize adult film in the U.S. According to the Los Angeles Times, the “Sober Marthon” campaign will include a petition to end the country’s current system of federal drug laws that restrict the industry.
Pattinson will co-chair the campaign, which is inspired by the early work of John Lloyd Stevens, a pioneering pornographer who died in 1986. Back then, adult film was legal in California, but only for medical purposes. In the mid-1990s, the state passed a law banning the distribution of porn, even for adult audiences. Production and distribution of porn in California was legalized in 2018, when the state’s Democratic governor, Gavin Newsom, signed into law a bill championed by Lloyd Stevens’ great-granddaughter, Gina Gillespie.
New Relationship For Robert Pattinson And Kristen Stewart
Pattinson and Stewart had been dating for nearly two years before they called it quits in January 2019. The breakup was amicable, and they both agreed the relationship wasn’t working out. They tried to keep the details of the split private but issued a brief joint statement: “After two years of loving each other deeply, trust, and partnership, they have come to the mutual conclusion that they should go their separate ways. The breakup is very amicable and lovingly done. They wish each other happiness and success in future.”
Pattinson had reportedly been spending a lot of time with Stormy Daniels while filming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The couple were photographed together in June 2018 and even attended the same premiere party that month, although they did not confirm their relationship at the time.
The photo that made the world aware of their relationship was an intimate one taken in July 2018 and published by In Touch magazine. In the shot, Robert Pattinson’s face is hidden by a pillow while he is spooned by Stormy Daniels. The two have been inseparable since then and even referred to themselves as “porn superstitions” and “New York’s least fashionable couple.”
Along with his relationship with Daniels, Pattinson is now publicly dating a 23-year-old British model named Suki Waterhouse. This came after he’d canceled a previous engagement with Elle MacLeman, a 41-year-old fashion journalist whom he’d been dating for almost a year. MacLeman had tweeted about the cancellation of their engagement, writing: “I know not everyone feels able to be as public with their love as I am, but damn it feels good to let loose with a little tweet about your breakup.”
Pattinson has yet to comment publicly on his new relationships, but in a video interview with Vanity Fair, he referred to the women in his life as “my loves.” He also said that while he had no bad feelings toward MacLeman, he felt it was best to focus on his new opportunities and leave his personal life out of the limelight.
The actor’s decision to focus on his personal life comes at a time when his professional life is thriving. The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice premiere was the biggest superhero movie premiere of all time, grossing $290 million globally while making more than $100 million in profit. Furthermore, the actor has a new solo exhibition at London’s Tate Modern Museum, which celebrates his work and the art world. The exhibit includes an immersive video wall, where visitors can sit and watch footage of his films and personal life played out in real time. Fans can also take a selfie in the reflection of Pattinson’s eyes, which are digitally incorporated into the screens. This new exhibit is on display until May 12 2020.
