Kevin opened the VMAs by addressing the ‘elephant in the room’ — Kristen’s affair! Luckily for Rob, he wasn’t in the building at the time and didn’t hear it! Kevin was not so lucky — MTV was left a little upset by Kevin’s remarks about Kristen, an MTV source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY!
Kevin Hart didn’t holding anything back while he hosted the Sept. 6 MTV Video Music Awards! The funny guy opened up the star-studded event by saying he was going to talk about people making mistakes, and clearly he was referring to Kristen Stewart. But opening up the show by addressing the “elephant in the room” left MTV a bit unhappy.
MTV sources told HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “MTV producers were at first mad that [Kevin] brought up Kristen Stewart and the incident, but it wasn’t a major issue with them because he didn’t harp on it and make it his material for the entire night. They were OK with things mostly because Kristen wasn’t there and the ‘Twilight’ gang hadn’t fully shown up by the time he mentioned things.”
Could you imagine if Robert Pattinson was there during the joke? That would have definitely been a bit awkward!
“Rob was oblivious to the situation and he didn’t even hear the joke at the time it was said, so it didn’t have an effect on him when he came out later in the telecast. He was in bright spirits for the limited time he was at the show and backstage,” our source adds.
When Rob did arrive, him and the cast of Breaking Dawn — Part 2 introduced the official, final trailer!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you happy Kevin defended Kristen?
