Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are rumored to be in the process of reconciliation after the actress' affair, despite the disapproval of some of their friends and fans. But could forces outside themselves be drawing them back together and saving the relationshipÂ—for now, at least?
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part 2, which premieres in November, has cynically been called the only reason Pattinson and Stewart are back on the same romantic team; it's a business deal for the box office, not a love-fueled one. But a new report claims that while yes the movie saved the couple from splitting up, they're not just putting on a show for the red carpet.
"They are working through their issues and I am positive that if there wasn't another press tour for the film they would have definitely broken up 100%," said a source closed to Summit, the studio behind the movie, as Hollywood Life reports. "The last Twilight may have actually saved their relationship. It's forced them to get together and talk."
Time will only tell if Pattinson and Stewart's Breaking Dawn flick actually prevented them from a final break-up because it made them talk through their issuesÂ—or if their reconciliation is purely temporary and will only last until the Twilight zone finally ends.
Meanwhile, Kristen Stewart's mother, Jules Stewart, is actually getting some credit, too, for restoring the love lost between her daughter and Pattinson after the cheating scandal. "Jules is the glue that's keeping Kristen and Rob together," a source close to the couple told Radar Online. "It ripped her heart in two when she saw those pictures of Kristen in a compromising situation with RupertÂ—and she couldn't believe what her daughter had done."
"As far as Jules was concerned, Kristen's relationship with Robert was a match made in heaven, and she adored him like he was her own son... She has been speaking with Robert, reiterating Kristen's pleas for another chance and is trying to help build up trust between the pair. It is early days, but if this reconciliation can bring Robert and Kristen back together, they'll have Jules to thank," the source also revealed. Sounds like mama Stewart is one of Robert Pattinson's biggest fans! But does mother really know best in this situation?
Regardless of whether Breaking Dawn or Jules or his own strong feelings for Stewart have convinced Pattinson to give Stewart another shot (or a combination of all three!), the couple will definitely need as much help as they can get to reestablish their now-tarnished love story.
