While Rob is away filming in Australia,he and Kristen are taking a break from their relationship. HollywoodLife.com Editor-in-Chief Bonnie Fuller thinks he’s leading poor Kristen on, while Managing Editor Bill Earl thinks it’s time Kristen takes the hint and walks away! What do you think?

When Robert Pattinson left the U.S. for Australia to shoot his new film, The Rover, he proposed a trial separation to girlfriend Kristen Stewart. As we’ve reported, Kristen, 22, agreed, begrudgingly, because she’s hopeful it will bring the two closer together — possibly even to the altar! Sadly, another source tells us that Rob, 26, views this as the start of his exit strategy. HollywoodLife.com‘s Editor-in-Chief Bonnie Fuller and Managing Editor Bill Earl debate whether this separation spells the end for our favorite couple.

Kristen Stewart Will Do Whatever It Takes To Keep Robert Pattinson

As a friend of Kristen’s told HollywoodLife.com, the actress is “bummed” that her beau asked for the separation, but she understands that there are still issues in the relationship, largely because of her! “But she also knows she messed up with the whole Rupert [Sanders] thing — she just wishes Rob would move forward with the relationship instead of dwelling in the past,” the friend said.

The Snow White and the Huntsman star is going along with Rob’s request in effort to please him. “She definitely didn’t want a trial separation,” the insider continued. “But she’s willing to do whatever makes Rob happy. She’s determined to make it work no matter it takes!”

Rob’s Not Feeling It

A source close to Rob revealed to us that the hunky Brit already has one foot out the door and hopes this separation will make the inevitable break-up easier! “Rob and Kristen are on a trial separation right now,” the friend said. ”For Kristen, it’s all or nothing. She’s ready for marriage, but Rob is over the relationship. They’re not going to see each other in Australia. When Rob returns, they’ll assess their relationship, but he doesn’t want to get back together. Rob’s been shaky ever since the cheating scandal.”

Watch Bonnie and Bill debate the separation in the video below and let us know: What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Should Rob just end things now if he wants out?
