Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are not reconciling, despite inaccurate speculation. The theory is only being tossed around because the two were recently spotted at the same party. Gossip Cop can debunk any rumors of a romantic reunion.
Last weekend, the Twilight co-stars both attended Lily-Rose Depp's birthday party at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. The exes were reportedly cordial with one another and stopped for a quick chat in the valet area outside the hotel. E! News reported that Pattinson and Stewart "exchanged a few words," but that was the extent of their interaction. The actor then left the party, while the actress and her friends went back inside.
According to the Mercury News, the impromptu run-in between the exes has "sparked reconciliation rumors." The outlet goes on to say "rumors have been swirling that the two are considering [getting back together]." But as opposed to "rumors swirling," there's really only been a few Twilight fans on social media fantasizing about the former couple reuniting, which isn't happening.
For starters, Stewart has been dating Stella Maxwell for a year and a half, and the two seem very happy together. They're frequently spotted going on date nights and day outings in Los Angeles. Also, Maxwell supported Stewart at the Cannes Film Festival last month while the actress served on the jury. The supermodel was with her girlfriend the entire time she was in France for the festival, and the two even shared a kiss while celebrating Maxwell's 28th birthday during the trip. If anything, that should extinguish any "sparked relationship rumors."
The online version of the California newspaper Mercury News then fills out its story by including false rumors that Gossip Cop already debunked. For instance, the blog suggests there's a chance Stewart could reunite with Pattinson because OK! said in April that she and Maxwell are "on the rocks." As noted above, there's plenty of evidence proving their relationship is going strong.
The outlet also recycles a false rumor about Stewart and Pattinson having met up for secret dates back in April. The bogus premise was based on another OK! article claiming the actress was secretly seeing her ex-boyfriend, and planning to dump Maxwell. A source close to Pattinson told us at the time that he never secretly met with his ex. As time has shown, the actress is still with her girlfriend.
The newspaper should have relied more on other outlets before publishing its collection of untruths. The fact of the matter is Pattinson and Stewart had a brief run-in at Depp's birthday party. That's all there is to the story. The theory that the two might romantically reconcile because they crossed paths at an event isn't based in reality. The publication's premise is so inaccurate that their camps wouldn't even address the speculation when posed with it by Gossip Cop.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
