When the news broke that Robert Pattinson had asked Zoe Kravitz to marry him, social media users hailed the heart-shaped diamond as the “perfect proposal.” However, while the celebrity couple are enjoying their newly minted marriage, their close circle of friends are struggling to comprehend the sudden and dramatic turn of events. Could this be because we’re actually not seeing the whole story?

Since dating in 2010, Pattinson and Kravitz have enjoyed a close and passionate relationship marked by lots of public displays of affection. The actor reportedly proposed while on a ski holiday in Italy, and she said “yes” without batting an eyelash. Needless to say, his famous brand of chaotic good-nature served as the perfect backdrop to his romantic gesture.

While the engagement was met with glee on social media, the same cannot be said of their friendship. Kravitz has spoken openly about how much she values their bond, and in an article for Hello! magazine, she described their relationship as “special” but admitted that it was a “huge change” to become his wife. Since news of the engagement spread, fans have been curious about how Zoe has reacted to the proposal and whether or not she shares the same feelings as her friends.

The ‘Perfect Proposal’

Pattinson reportedly enlisted the help of a friend named Michael Salerno to orchestrate the “perfect proposal.” According to an article published on Page Six, the actor and the planner went to great lengths to ensure that the moment was perfect. They locked themselves away in a hotel room for a week and splurged on lavish meals and bottles of champagne to get the proposal over with. On the evening of February 23, Salerno got down on one knee in the middle of a cobbled street in Portofino. The surprise proposal was completely improvised and captured on video, which has since gone viral.

“It was a very romantic gesture,” an onlooker told People. “You see Robert getting down on one knee, and then all of a sudden, you see Zoe coming down the stairs. Michael got down on one knee and proposed, and she said yes. It was a very sweet scene. You could see how much they love each other. They looked happy and in love.”

That “very sweet scene” was met with joy on social media, but the same can’t be said for the rest of the story. After the ceremony in a hotel in Florence, Italy, Kravitz posted a photo of herself in a wedding dress on Instagram, along with the caption, “Happy Valentine’s Day! Robert Pattinson and I got hitched today. We couldn’t be happier.”

However, shortly after the photo was posted, some of Kravitz’s friends began to notice a marked difference in her attitude. “I don’t know if you’ve heard but @robertpattinson and I are getting a divorce,” one of her friends wrote on Twitter. “Zoe, if you’re reading this let’s talk. Email me.”

“I’m not getting a divorce,” Kravitz replied. “Too much work. Just an amicable split. I love you guys. Everything is going to be okay.”

But the response from fans was swift and harsh. “You have to get the divorce! You’re not married anymore,” one Twitter user wrote. “You betrayed the fandom.” Another added, “You’re no longer part of the #RobertPattinsonArmy. I hope you’re happy.” A third tweeted, “All of a sudden, you’re not a wife anymore. I love you as a friend, but this is so unexpected. I thought you were happy being married to the actor. It’s okay, though. You deserve to be with someone who treats you right.”

The ‘Work-related Stress’ That Arranged The Divorce

While many fans reacted with shock and disappointment, others jumped to Kravitz’s defense and blamed Salerno for the split. “Zoe isn’t cheating on Robert,” one user wrote. “She’s simply dealing with some work-related stress. It’s not a bad thing.”

According to Page Six, the dispute over the “perfect proposal” is just one of a string of problems that led to the end of their marriage. An insider told the publication that Kravitz was “petrified” about going public with their problems, and even considered holding off on divorcing Pattinson until later. But after a series of stressful months, she decided it was time to walk down the aisle. The source added that Kravitz felt “betrayed and insecure” about the way she was portrayed in the press and on social media, and didn’t want to be associated with someone she perceived to be a failure.

The pair reportedly began feuding over creative differences and money issues. They also struggled to find the right time to have children, with Pattinson wanting to wait until later in life and Kravitz wanting to have kids as soon as possible. But above all else, they fought over the press, constantly comparing notes on which reporter was harassing them and which one was trying to be helpful.

They Love Each Other… But Can They Work?

After 13 years together, it’s clear that Pattinson and Kravitz have a lot to discuss. But even after the proposal, the two friends remain at odds. In an interview with Hello! magazine, Kravitz was asked if she and Pattinson will ever work together again and replied, “I don’t know. I have so much going on in my life right now, which is really great. He’s supportive of that, but we’re still friends.”

Similarly, in an interview with Today, she said that while they love each other “very much,” it’s a “complicated” relationship. “It’s not like we were going to be together for the rest of our lives,” she said. “I didn’t want to live in a fishbowl. He gets that. But it is what it is.”

The comment section of both articles is now awash with hateful comments from fans who feel betrayed and lied to. One commenter wrote, “I think you guys should just make a pact to never talk to each other ever again.” Another tweeted, “I’m starting to think Robert Pattinson is the most heartless, disgusting person I’ve ever met.” A third posted, “I hope you’re happy. I hope you had a wonderful honeymoon and that this is what you truly want. Congratulations.”

Whether or not Pattinson and Kravitz will ever be able to repair their friendship remains to be seen. For now, they’ve both moved on with their lives and are happy to share their love for each other with the world. But, perhaps, not everything that gets tweeted is as it seems. Could their friends’ reactions have been any more revealing?
