No bad blood here! Robert Pattinson wasn’t caught off guard when Kristen Stewart went public with her love for Alicia Cargile — because she warned him about the interview…and the actor was adorably supportive of his ex, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned!
“Kristen gave Rob a heads up about the interview and he was very supportive,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He told her he was proud of her.”
As we previously reported, K.Stew admitted — for the first time — in an interview with Elle UK that she has a “girlfriend” who she’s “in love” with. Although the actress didn’t name Alicia Cargile by name, it’s no secret that this is the woman in question: They were just spotted passionately making out in public earlier this month.
Obviously, it’s never easy to see an ex move on, so it’s so great that Rob has Kristen’s back on this one. As we all know, the 30-year-old himself is also in a good place romantically — he’s happily engaged to FKA Twigs! We’ll always love Robsten, but with their relationship more than three years old at this point, we’re just glad to see them both so happy.
Kristen and Alicia started out as best friends, but in early 2015, speculation that they’d become something more began when they were seen holding hands in public on multiple occasions. Their PDA continued throughout the year, but then, Kristen started dating French singer Soko. However, they split in spring 2016, and just days later, Kristen was photographed with Alicia at the Cannes Film Festival.
Since then, the ladies have practically been inseparable, and based on Kristen’s new interview, it’s clear that things are going better than ever. “We’ve broken up a couple of times and gotten back together,” she explained. “And this time, I was like, ‘Finally, I can feel again.'” AWWW!
HollywoodLifers, are you surprised that Rob is so supportive of Kristen’s new relationship?
