CLAIM: Kristen Stewart Fears Australia Will Ruin Robert Pattinson Relationship

Truth rating: 0

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s love is being “put to the test,” declares Life & Style. The tabloid claims the actress “fears distance will destroy” their romance, as Pattinson goes to Australia to film The Rover.

“He’ll be gone a long time, and Kristen is upset,” a so-called “friend” of the Twilight heartthrob tells the magazine. “She’s worried they won’t be able to make their relationship work with the distance.”

According to Life & Style, Stewart is “driving herself crazy worrying Rob will use their time apart to have a revenge fling.” “She can’t stand the thought of some woman getting her claws into him,” explains the tab’s source, while a different Life & Style “insider” alleges, “Rob wants her to stop being so needy and jealous. She’s pushing him away more and more.”

Enough. What this all really comes down to, is that Robert Pattinson is working in Australia and the tabloids are desperate to turn this straightforward professional reality into some kind of sensational personal drama. The serial fabricators at HollywoodLife in particular have been worked up into a lather about Pattinson having the audacity to do a job outside Los Angeles, falsely claiming he and Stewart are on a “trial separation.” Now the print rags are taking their shots, and coming up with nothing any more fact-based.

Of course, Life & Style has a dreadful track record when it comes to reporting on the couple, swinging wildly from bogus stories about a “secret wedding” to equally phony reports of Pattinson playing mind games with Stewart. In November, the magazine declared the couple were “ready to be parents” — and now, all of a sudden, they’re supposedly being driven apart by geography. The appearance of controversy or hurt feelings is what sells magazines, which is why Life & Style is happy to publish unsubstantiated stories about Stewart and Pattinson’s relationship being imperiled.

This latest one is 100 percent untrue. A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop the reports about long-distance trouble are “totally made up.”
