Kristen Stewart Publicly Apologizes for Cheating
Posted 07.25.12 by Mandy
In a very surprising move, Twilight star Kristen Stewart made a public apology about a recent "indiscretion," and it is assumed to be referring to her rumored dalliance with Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders. As all twi-hards know, Stewart has been in a relationship with her costar Robert Pattinson for years.
Usually, making a public apology for a mistake in one's private life is an action reserved for philandering politicians. An unmarried actress may have reason to apologize privately to someone she's hurt, but a public apology is an atypical choice. In the statement she released, Stewart expressed great regret for her actions.
I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry.
Rupert Sanders is married to actress Liberty Ross and the couple have two children together. He also released a statement, which is slightly less surprising, considering there is a family involved.
I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.
For years, Kristen Stewart has been extremely tight lipped about her relationship with Pattinson. She would rarely say anything about it one way or the other, though the occasional pic of the couple canoodling would be released every now and again. For her to release a public statement about such a private issue seems rather out of character. Many people have long been suspicious of the "Robsten" relationship, thinking the whole thing was a publicity stunt intended to promote the Twilight franchise. It isn't terribly surprising for two attractive, single, young actors fall for each other. It also isn't strange for a young celebrity to not want to talk publicly about their private lives, or for a 22-year-old woman to step out on a boyfriend that she doesn't see for weeks on end due to conflicting work schedules. But this turn of events with the starlet going public with her cheating is certainly odd.
Hopefully, the conspiracy theorists are right this time, and this is all just a show and not a family falling a part due to an older man cheating with a younger woman. On the other hand, if this is just a show, our favorite NuttyMadam, Emma Clark, is very upset over nothing.
