Breakup rumors continue to circle around Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart after news broke earlier this week of Stewart cheating with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
Hiding out since the news broke late Tuesday, Pattinson is “really depressed,” one source close to the actor, 26, told Us Weekly. “He doesn’t know what to do. He doesn’t know if he should forgive her or not.”
Stewart issued an apology statement earlier this week saying that she was “deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment” she caused.
Rupert Sanders’ wife is also having a difficult time coping with the news.
“It’s really shocking,” a Ross insider tells Us Weekly. “She has been with Rupert since she was 18 — they got together when she graduated. He’s the only love she’s known.”
Luckily for the British-born stunner, “Liberty has family and siblings in Los Angeles, so she has a really good support system,” the source says.
Still, Ross — who championed her husband’s fledgling career, even appearing in his first major feature film, Snow White and the Huntsman, as young Snow White’s mother — is having a hard time getting past the bombshell. Says the Ross pal, “They have a really strong family life and Rupert is always so wonderful to her and the kids. It’s really shocking.” (Ross and Sanders have two children together, ages 5 and 7).
During an interview with YOU Magazine conducted just two weeks before news of Sanders’ infidelity broke, Ross opened up about the recent challenges her marriage faced, admitting that her move to Los Angeles to help further Sanders’ career had turned out to be an “isolating” experience.
“I romanticized domesticity for a while and loved having a shopping list of groceries stuck to the fridge for the first time,” she said. “But moving here and starting a life all over again was a lot harder than I had anticipated. I just didn’t think it would be as isolating and daunting as it turned out to be.”
Sanders’ newly hectic schedule proved problematic too. “I would never say out loud that I am raising my children alone,” she confessed. “But a lot of the time it has felt like that.”
As far as for Pattinson and Stewart, They were first romantically linked in 2009, the Twilight costars have slowly begun sharing their real-life romance with the world– with pals recently telling Us Weekly that Pattinson was mulling a marriage proposal and Stewart dreaming of starting a family with her man.
“Rob’s whole experience of coming into fame was experienced with Kristen,” says the first source. “This is going to be really tough. Nobody knows if they’ll stay together at this point.”
We wish the couple the best of luck in moving forward during this.
