CLAIM: Kristen Stewart and Nikki Reed Feud Over Robert Pattinson and Fame

Truth rating: 1

By Daniel Gates


A new Star magazine piece fans the flames of an alleged “feud” between Kristen Stewart and Nikki Reed, mostly as a way of making Stewart look bad. The two actresses “can’t stand each other,” a so-called “insider” tells the tabloid. “They don’t even talk anymore.” What went down?

Well, even though Reed is now happily married to Paul McDonald, “Kristen has never forgiven Nikki for the fling” she supposedly had with Robert Pattinson, claims Star‘s source, adding, “Kristen never confronted Rob about the affair; she just put the blame on Nikki and accused her of pursuing him.” So, in the magazine’s version of history, an “affair” blew up Stewart and Reed’s friendship, even though both stars are currently in happy relationships and have seemed perfectly fine with each other in recent years.

Star also says Reed has a problem with Stewart’s “hypocritical attitude toward stardom.” “Nikki’s the most down-to-earth actress you’ll ever meet,” explains the “source.” “Kristen acts like she can’t be bothered by fame, yet she lives for all the press about her and Rob.” In other words, Stewart is supposedly desperate for tabloid chatter, and this alleged obsession with fame bothers Reed.

Pattinson, meanwhile, “has been trying to play mediator,” but Star suspects Stewart is going to ruin his friendship with Reed, too. “It won’t last – not if Kristen has anything to say about it,” says the mag’s insider. Wait, so Stewart and Reed have allegedly been warring forever, but all of a sudden Stewart wants to torpedo Reed’s friendship with Pattinson? None of this makes any sense.

If Stewart really thought there was something between Reed and Pattinson, why would she be so upset only now, with Reed already married to someone else and her own romance with Pattinson going well? And why would Stewart be faking her disdain for tabloid attention on her private life? A source close to the actress laughed off the Star report, telling Gossip Cop there’s no truth to overheated talk about a feud between her and Reed.
