Could Kristen Stewart And Robert Pattinson Be Pulling Off The Most Tragically Romantic PR Stunt Ever?

Ugh, I don’t know what to believe anymore about this entire Kristen Stewart cheating on Robert Pattinson with Rupert Sanders scandal. Is it an attempt for Kristen Stewart to get out of acting as well as her staged relationship with Robert Pattinson?

Or is it something even more unbelievable. Something so crazy and so scripted that it’s almost impossible to believe. Yet, hard to ignore. Could it be possible that this entire “cheating scandal” is setting up the most romantic reunion ever between the two star-crossed co-stars — right before the fourth and final installment of Twilight, Breaking Dawn: Part 2 hits theaters in November.

When these cheating photos leaked on Tuesday night, I would have said no. But now everything’s wrapping up so neatly and so movie-like, that I can’t help but be suspect.

Here’s what we know.

Kristen Stewart got caught publicly cheating, Kristen Stewart issued a heartfelt apology to Robert Pattinson within 24 hours of being caught publicly cheating and now stories about Robert Pattinson being heartbroken and undecided about what to do started to leak out. Like this one from Us Weekly.

Hiding out since the news broke late Tuesday, Pattinson is “really depressed,” one source close to the actor, 26, tells Us Weekly. “He doesn’t know what to do. He doesn’t know if he should forgive her or not.” Stewart released an emotional, contrite apology to the world Wednesday afternoon, and behind closed doors is “devastated,” another source close to both stars says. “She’s very angry at herself. She’s really not blaming anyone but herself.”

So many anonymous sources are just speaking out, on behalf of two stars who carried on an incredibly private affair for several years. It’s certainly odd and it’s certainly setting up quite the plot twist for this couple.

Let’s just recap here for a second.

A woman looks for public forgiveness from her heartbroken lover after cheating on him with an older, married (and therefore forbidden) man. Sounds like the plot of a movie. A movie you don’t really care about, but have to watch to see what happens. Will he forgive her? Or will he leave her? We’ll find out after the commercial break.

Wouldn’t it be just great for tabloid headlines if he does decide to take her back, right before the movie comes out. And they can triumphantly walk down the red carpet together, holding hands and making loving faces at each other. All the fans can cheer, because just like in the story of Bella and Edward, true love does exist! Sure there are obstacles, but if you prevail, you can find love. The movie may by fantasy, but the tale they’re telling is true to life. Kristen and Robert are proof of that!

In a franchise that’s slowly losing steam to trilogies like The Hunger Games, this could be just the PR boost it needs to win big in the theaters this November. Or it could just be another celebrity scandal unfolding in front of our eyes. But as someone who follows these scandals for a living, something’s just not right here.
