The Twilight movie series not only gave us Edward and Bella’s amazing love story on the big screen but also introduced us to the amazingly talented actors, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. The main stars of the movies have gone on to do many more interesting projects but to this day Robert and Kristen are still recognized for playing Edward Cullen and Bella Swan respectively.
Well, along with their on-screen chemistry, Robert and Kristen’s real-life romance was also the talk of the town for many years. The duo’s chemistry carried over the screen and they dated for several years. However, their relationship was faced with scandals which sadly, resulted in their breakup.
So, what was the reason behind their split? Let’s find out below.
Robert And Kristen Started Dating After Meeting On Set
Like many Hollywood co-stars, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart met on set and the sparks flew soon after. They started dating in 2009, after meeting on the set of the first Twilight movie, and were very much in love. While neither of them was open about their relationship, there was no question about their chemistry off-screen.
Well, their relationship carried over to the filming of all five Twilight movie series. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were enjoying their relationship while also filming The Twilight Saga: New Moon, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Part 2. They not only tasted success from these movies but Kristen and Robert also found epic love all thanks to the Twilight Series.
Why Did Kristen Stewart And Robert Pattinson Break Up?
Fans had dubbed their favorite real-life couple, Kristen and Robert, Robsten, and were following their relationship trajectory. However, to everyone’s surprise, photographs of Stewart kissing the director of Snow White and the Huntsman, Rupert Sanders found their place on the internet.
Rumors about Stewart and Pattinson’s breakup reached new heights after Kristen was accused of cheating on Robert. Well, to no one’s surprise, the couple ended their relationship in 2012. Reports about Robert being depressed after knowing about the infidelity were rampant in the media.
Moreover, Kristen Stewart put out a statement regarding the pictures and apologized for hurting the person who was the most important in her life, Pattinson. On the other hand, Rupert who was married to Liberty Ross at that time also shared his own statement where he hoped that he and his wife could get through the issue together, Sanders also shares two kids with Ross.
Well, the Kristen and Robert Sanders scandal definitely affected both parties’ respective romantic lives. While Stewart and her then-boyfriend, Pattinson broke up, Sanders and Ross’s marriage also did not survive. The married couple divorced in 2014.
As for the fan-favorite “Robsten,” a few months after the photos were published, the Twilight stars chose to give their relationship another go. Reports about them making up circulated in September of the same year and sources revealed that Robert was hurt but also still in love with Kristen.
But Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s second try at their relationship did not work out. They broke up for good in May 2013 and there were reports that the former couple had had a difficult time at the end of their relationship. They were reportedly fighting a lot and had many problems which then led to their breakup.
After this, both Robert and Kristen moved on with their respective lives and found love again. Stewart is currently engaged to Dylan Meyer, a screenwriter, and identifies herself as bisexual. Robert, on the other hand, is in a relationship with fellow actor, Suki Waterhouse.

Whatever their relationship might be like in private, both Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have only had positive things to say about their others.
