Did K-Stew stray because she was afraid of a life-long commitment with Rob? Experts say that just might be the reason why she cheated. Read on for more details!
So why when everything seemed to be picture perfect did she go behind Robert Pattinson‘s back and cheat on him with Rupert Sanders, a 41-year-old married man?
Well, with reports surfacing that Rob was preparing to get down on one knee and ask for her hand in marriage — experts say that just might have been the trigger that made her run away.
“This is a likely possibility. She was terrified of a marriage and she ran like a deer in headlights without thought of consequences,” Dr. Gilda Carle, the 30-Second Therapist on Today.com tells HollywoodLife.com.
And Dr. Carole Lieberman, M.D. celebrity psychiatrist and author of Bad Girls: Why Men Love Them & How Good Girls Can Learn Their Secrets agrees, noting that subconsciously Kristen may have wanted Rob to eventually find out about it.
“One of the explanations for Kristen’s cheating – though not the only one – is that she was afraid of commitment. She was scared that Rob was going to propose and felt that, at 22, it would be too soon to become tied down to one man,” she tells us. ”Kristen was ambivalent. She did it in a public way to make sure that Rob found out about it. Yet, she also believed that she could get him back.”
Dr. Lieberman also says that Kristen may have been attracted to the thrill of hooking up with a married man.
“If her cheating with Rupert lasted longer than a momentary slip, she would fit into the Husband Stealer category of bad girls. These women are not content with just having any guy, they want the thrill of stealing another woman’s husband. They feel as though their mom got more love and attention from their dad when they were growing up, so each time they steal a man away from his wife, they are getting revenge on their mom,” she says.
And that’s definitely a possibility considering what Kristen, 22, said in the June issue of Elle magazine: “ I feel boring. I feel like, ‘Why is everything so easy for me?’ I can’t wait for something crazy to f**king happen to me. Just life. I want someone to f**k me over.”
Well, now she got her wish.
