CLAIM: Kristen Stewart “Banished” from Robert Pattinson’s Cosmopolis Premiere

Truth rating: 0

It’s clear that RadarOnline is anxious to add drama to the Robert PattinsonKristen Stewart saga, but the site’s reporting is rooted in sensationalism rather than facts. The site now claims “exclusively” that Stewart has been “banished” from the New York premiere of Pattinson’s movie Cosmopolis on August 13.

According to the webloid, “Security staff have been told to keep [Stewart] away from the red carpet and after party… in fear she may use it as an excuse to speak with R-Pattz in person.”

“The film’s movie bosses are also wary of the media storm it would cause and don’t want her appearance distracting the public from the movie,” explains RadarOnline. Then, because RadarOnline has no actual information, it fills out the story by repeating itself two or three times, insisting to have a “source” who claims “security was briefed and they were told that Kristen is not allowed anywhere near the red carpet or after party.”

None of this is true. Here’s what’s actually behind this non-“story.” RadarOnline knows full well that Stewart never had any intention of being at the Cosmopolis premiere. There is absolutely nothing for her to gain by subjecting herself to what would become the biggest tabloid circus in recent memory. Stewart is not connected to the film, and to suggest that she’d crash the event to stage some kind of emotional reunion with Pattinson in front of reporters is too bizarre and illogical a premise for even RadarOnline to believe. Regardless, sources close to the Cosmopolis premiere were baffled by the story, telling Gossip Cop there had been absolutely no discussion about Stewart whatsoever, since, again, SHE WAS NEVER GOING.
