While Kristen Stewart is no longer able to rely on Robert Pattinson for friendship, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that her pal, Taylor Lautner, was the first to reach out and offer his shoulder to cry on when Rob’s engagement news broke.
Kristen Stewart, 24, doesn’t have to suffer through this heartbreak alone. While Robert Pattinson, 28, is busy romancing his fiancee, FKA twigs, 27, the former Twilight star found that she can rely on the one person who has been there for her the whole time — Taylor Lautner, 23.
Kristen Stewart: Taylor Lautner Supporting Her After Robert Pattinson Engagement
Life is really imitating art when it comes to the Twilight trio these days. Now that Rob has completely removed himself from Kristen’s life, she is finding comfort in the arms of her longtime friend, Taylor.
“[Taylor] already reached out to her to offer support and to remind her that it’s out of her control and not to beat herself up about the past,” a source close to the friends told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He found out about Rob’s engagement just like everybody else, on the Internet, and as soon as he heard about it he reached out to Kristen.”
It’s really sweet to hear that Taylor and Kristen are still so close, especially now when she needs him the most. After all, the three of them really have a history together.
“He’s been there with her throughout all the ups and downs with Rob and totally understands how the news is playing with her head,” the source explained. “He’s always been like her rock and visa versa.”
So… Taylor being Kristen’s rock is totally equivalent to Jacob being Bella’s sun, right? Too soon?
Kristen Found Out About Rob’s Engagement On The Internet
Unfortunately, Taylor wasn’t the only one to find out that Rob and FKA had made a very special promise to each other via the internet — it’s the same way Kristen heard the news.
“Kristen was not told — he didn’t reach out to her and tell her,” another source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Ouch. That must have really hurt Kristen, especially since her and Rob were together so much longer than he has been with FKA twigs.
However, the source defended Rob’s decision not to tell Kristen by sharing, “That ship has sailed. He doesn’t talk to her — they have two completely different lives. She is not a part of his day at all. FKA is his life now.”
