Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart “Split” Story Has Familiar Ring

Truth rating: 0

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart grace the pages of Famous magazine again, which must mean it’s time for Famous to “grace” readers with yet another bogus story about the couple.

According to the tab, “sources on the set” of Breaking Dawn and “several international news outlets” are reporting that Pattinson and Stewart are finished. And what, exactly, is the centerpiece of this breathless exposé about the couple (supposedly) splitting? Why, it’s the same phony claim about Stewart skipping the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas that Gossip Cop debunked when the Daily Mirror floated it last week. Again: Pattinson attended the ceremony in order to present with his Water for Elephants costar Reese Witherspoon. Stewart was never supposed to go.

In any case, Famous insists these latest developments cap “an already tumultuous year” for Pattinson and Stewart. The tabloid brings up the couple “secretly getting engaged” over Christmas (which Famous made up) and Stewart’s alleged jealousy over Pattinson potentially “getting cosy” with Cosmopolis costar Keira Knightley – even though Knightley is no longer attached to the movie.

“It’s beginning to look as if the pressure has got too much,” a so-called “friend” tells Famous. “They’ve learnt to cope with the spotlight that fame puts on their relationship but they’re struggling with the everyday issues. Right. And how much faith does Famous have in its own argument? Um, not a whole lot.

The magazine pulls a classic “cover its behind” move by squeezing into the very end of the article the statement, “While things are looking bleak at the moment, nothing is set in stone and those close to the on-again/off-again couple remain quietly confident they’ll reconcile.” Gossip Cop is “quietly confident” that Famous will continue to have no idea what’s actually going on with Pattinson and Stewart.
