In case you don’t remember, Nikki Reed, 28, dated Robert Pattinson, 30, BEFORE Kristen Stewart, 26, kinda, sorta’ stole him away. It caused a great deal of tension on the Twilight set, but now that Nikki is happily married to Ian Somerhalder, she couldn’t care less about the petty drama. “It took a long time for Nikki to forgive Kristen for meddling in her relationship with Rob,” tells a source EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “But as time went on, she learned how to get over it. Once she married Paul [McDonald], she completely forgot about the whole thing, and now she’s with Ian who’s considered her soulmate. Rob is just a blurb in her life story, so she isn’t really paying or giving much attention to Kristen’s diss.”
Since the American Ultra actress has found true happiness with girlfriend Alicia Cargile, she’s been more open to discussing her past romances. “People wanted me and Rob to be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product,” she admits to T Magazine. “It wasn’t real life anymore. And that was gross to me.” Could this explain why the actress was caught locking lips with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders while she was still with Rob? Was Kristen looking for a way out?
After that HUGE cheating scandal broke out, K-Patz were no longer an item. Instead, they were made into a “product” of pop culture and entertainment. Twi-hard fans were so outraged by their break up, that they protested against seeing the final installment unless Kristen and Rob were back together, which threw producers and publicists into a PANIC. A few months later, like magic, K-Patz were back ON — just in time for the premiere screening of Breaking Dawn Part II. We’re not saying that the former couple’s relationship was all fake, but there was definitely some kind of puppet master pulling the strings towards the end.
HollywoodLifers, isn’t it a nice breath of fresh air to see Kristen so outspoken?
