Rob clearly could not get over Kristen’s cheating! Sources close to him now reveal that one of the reasons he’s fallen for Riley is that he feels he can trust her. Plus, we know what else he likes about her!
Kristen Stewart apologized for cheating on Robert Pattinson with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders in July 2012. Sadly, the trust was irrevocably broken and their relationship, post-cheating scandal, was short-lived. Now, after splitting with Kristen in May, Rob’s reportedly dating Riley Keough, an actress and Elvis Presley’s granddaughter — someone who he believes won’t cheat on him.
Robert Pattinson & Riley Keough Relationship — Rob Trusts Her Not To Cheat
Kristen’s affair may have happened in July 2012, but for Rob, the memory was just too much to bare. A source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively:
“Rob is so happy that he can trust someone again because at the end of the day, Kristen’s affair forever haunted him. In the back of his mind, he knew that she could be tempted again. He knows Riley isn’t like that because she has other loves besides acting — acting doesn’t define her and she is a complete package. [Rob] also likes that she is more lady-like, since Kristen is very tomboyish. It’s very early, and they are having fun, but that’s exactly what he needs. Rob is very happy with the way everything is turning out.”
It seems unfair that Rob would hold Kristen’s past mistakes against her. True love is about forgiving and forgetting, right? If Rob can’t move past an unfortunate indiscretion, which only happened once and Kristen has since apologized publicly for, then maybe they’re better off apart. They both deserve to be happy, even if that means with other people.
It also seems odd to us that RPatz may be criticizing Kristen for characteristics that he used to love about her ie her casual tomboyishness and fondess for wearing his guy clothes, plus we’re sure Kristen has other loves and interests besides acting, including her famous cooking. It seems like RPatz may be feeling overly harshly towards his ex- but it probably all boils down to the fact, that he never got over his hurt after the cheating. So Kristen, don’t stress over his thoughts that Riley is more lady-like – we doubt that has anything to do with his decision to break up. You’re plenty, lady-like!
Robert Pattinson & Riley Keough Are Having Fun Together
Nevertheless we’re happy that Rob, 27, is enjoying himself . He and Riley, 24, were first seen hanging out together in Rob’s pickup truck on June 29 and now they’re “they’re inseparable,” a source close to the Twilight actor told the Daily Mail.
Furthermore, the new couple is reportedly planning to spend the Fourth of July together, before Rob starts filming Map to the Stars, in Toronto, on July 8. Hmm, sounds like they’ll be making their own private fireworks over the long weekend.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Kristen would have cheated on Rob again?
