The Twilight Saga is one of the most famous movie series of all time. The series made Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart household names as millions of fans shipped them together. The fans got what they wanted in 2009 as it was confirmed that the two are dating. They kept their relationship out of the public’s eye.
However, things soon took a turn as Kristen Stewart reportedly cheated on Robert Pattinson when she was spotted kissing director Rupert Sanders in 2012. They ultimately broke up in 2013 and Stewart publicly apologized to the actor. They are still reportedly in touch and are on good terms.

Their relationship came to an end in 2013
After the photos went viral, Stewart publicly apologized to Pattinson and they continued dating. However, one year later, it was revealed that they ended their relationship for good. In 2021, Stewart called their relationship “young and stupid” in an interview with The New Yorker,
“[We both had an] intellectual approach that was combined with ‘I don’t give a f**k about this, but I’m going to make this sing,’ I was, like, ‘Ugh, same,’ and, whatever, we were young and stupid and, not to say that we made it so much better, but that’s what it needed, and that’s what anybody playing those parts needed to feel.”
The actress has always been apologetic and has always regretted mistreating Pattinson. She also once explained that she was going through a “chaotic period” when the two were together.

“Yes, Rob really does consider Kristen a friend even though they don’t see each other much at all, the last time being at a mutual friend’s home for a party a while ago.”
The source further added that they text each other occasionally and still keep their conversations out of the public’s eye.
