Embarrassed by her behavior, Kristen Stewart can’t bear to face her ex-boyfriend Rob Pattinson.
Only last month, the idea of “happily ever after” seemed completely plausible for on-and-off screen couple, Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. But everything changed on July 17 after Kristen was caught in an illicit embrace with Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders.
Despite her pleas and public apologies, the 26-year-old Twilight actor has been unwilling to forgive Kristen’s infidelity. “She knows she screwed up everything,” a friend tells Star.
As the impact of her devious behavior continues to set in, Kristen has started pulling away from her promotional obligations because she’s terrified of facing Rob. “I don’t think Kristen had the stomach to be anywhere near Robert so soon after she tore his heart out,” reveals a friend. “She really hasn’t recovered from the shame she brought on herself and the realization of the pain she inflicted on the guy who was the love of her life.”
Fans had hoped the pair would be presenters at the 2012 Video Music Awards on Sept. 6, especially since Breaking Dawn Part 2 comes out this November, but Kristen claims she has a scheduling conflict. She’s also skipping upcoming Twilight fan conventions that she’s willingly attended in the past.
“I can’t really say I’m shocked that she would turn her back on appearing at the VMAs, even though it’s one of the biggest events for her main fan base,” echoes the friend. “I just can’t see any way she could face Robert — even if he was willing to put on a brave face and go on.”
As the U.S. premiere date of Breaking Dawn Part 2 approaches, Kristen may need to toughen up and learn how to face Rob. “The studio has invested million of dollars in this film, and there’s absolutely no way Kristen is going to get any leeway with promoting it alongside Robert,” explains an insider. “She’ll have to face the music — and him — sooner or later.”
