The latest wave of frenzied Robert PattinsonKristen Stewart speculation claims the pair has entered a custody fight — over Pattinson’s rescue dog Bear.

These rumors come in the wake of Stewart’s indiscretion with Rupert Sanders, after which Pattinson asked her to leave the home they shared in Los Angeles. With the embattled couple no longer living together, bloggers like Perez Hilton are spreading new reports about Stewart and Pattinson bickering over Bear. According to Perez’s “Robsten insider” (whose quotes he steals, word for word, from equally unreliable webloids), “Rob was so hurt by Kristen’s actions he decided that he wants the dog to help him get over what happened.”

“However, Kristen won’t give up Bear in a hurry,” explains the “insider,” adding, “She wants joint custody — and it could get a little messy.” Of course, messiness is exactly what Perez and his ilk want from the Stewart-Pattinson situation, which is how stories like this one take root. It’s why completely off-base rumors are getting mixed in with the actual facts about fallout from Stewart’s actions.

But Perez feels compelled to stir the pot. He screams, “Come on KStew! Let Rob have a LITTLE comfort, for goodness sake! And is joint custody simply a scheme for her to see RPatz again?”

No. There is NO custody battle here. The phony battle over Bear is just more manufactured controversy from outlets hoping to heighten emotions in an already difficult situation. Bear is Pattinson’s dog. Despite the fact that Stewart helped care for Bear while she and Pattinson lived together, the idea that the pooch is being used as a pawn (or that Stewart wants to “steal” him, as Perez suggests) is totally false.

Sources close to both parties tell Gossip Cop the talk about a looming custody fight over Bear is “complete b.s.” It seems like Pattinson will be keeping his beloved pet, regardless of what winds up happening between him and Stewart. As for Perez and the others… well, let’s just say they’re barking up the wrong tree.
