Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have split after almost four years together, People magazine is reporting.
The couple – who reportedly broke up briefly in December after Kristen Stewart’s summer fling with married director Rupert Sanders was revealed – are believed to have now called time on their relationship.
However, just like the last time, their split may not be over for good.
Sources insisted to the magazine it may just be a temporary split for the Twilight Saga co-stars.
On Monday, it appeared Kristen Stewart had left her Los Feliz, California, home that she shares with the English actor.
Despite it being Robert Pattinson’s 27th birthday, Kristen Stewart stayed at a friend’s house just down the road from her own home.
The actress was seen driving with a friend around the area – and even appeared to be tearing up at one point.
The pair was expected to attend Cannes Film Festival in France together this week, however neither star has been photographed at the festival.
Speculation over their rocky romance had subsided lately, as they have been putting on a show of solidarity, but now sources claim they have chosen to go their separate ways even though Robert Pattinson had put Kristen Stewart’s affair behind them.
Robert Pattinson initially struggled to cope with Kristen Stewart’s “momentary indiscretion” with friends revealing their relationship was strained for months after the fling.
Following the affair, which was caught on film by a cameraman, 23-year-old Kristen Stewart issued a public apology for the hurt she had caused and finally acknowledged publicly her relationship with her co-star.
Director Rupert Sanders did not fare as well.
His wife model Liberty Ross – with whom he has two children – filed for divorce.
Rupert Sanders was also dumped as director of Snow White And The Huntsman sequel – as during filming of the original the pair begun their affair.
