Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live Friday night that he is now homeless. Pattinson cited that he had allowed his parents to borrow the home that he was living in, and they have since thrown him out of the home. Pattinson also noted that he himself was borrowing the home from someone else. Reports are now surfacing that Pattinson has taken up residence at the home of his former flame Kristen Stewart.
Pattinson and Stewart met on the set of the famed ‘Twilight’ film, and an on-again-off-again romance ensued over the years. Pattinson is reportedly staying at the home of Stewart and has admitted that he and Stewart remain friends. Pattinson is reportedly staying at Kristen’s home between film shoots, but neither of the two actors has reported a rekindling of the relationship.
Pattinson’s relationship with Stewart took a sour turn in October 2012 when photo evidence surfaced of Stewart kissing married director Rupert Sanders. Sanders directed Stewart in the film Snow White and the Huntsman. At the time Stewart was 22-years-old and insisted that she was not in love with, nor having an affair with Sanders. However, the photos sparked a firestorm that ended with a divorce between Sanders and his wife model Liberty Ross. The couple had two children.
Stewart was reportedly distraught over her exposed mingling with Sanders and publicly tweeted that she loved Pattinson. Reports from the Stewart camp noted that Stewart felt awful and that her time with Sanders was nothing more than a fling. Pattinson apparently forgave Stewart, and after a few weeks the twosome were seen together again in public, much to the dismay of many Pattinson fans. Even real estate tycoon Donald Trump publicly advised Pattinson to avoid Stewart.
There has been no indication that Pattinson’s homeless stay with his former love Stewart means they are once again a couple. Pattinson however remains a gainfully employed actor who can certainly afford to rent a new home if he so desires.
Both Pattinson and Stewart rose to fame via their starring roles in the film franchise Twilight. The glare of the spotlight upon the couple has yet to dim.
Pattinson was born in London, England in 1986. He has two sisters and he was the only boy born to parents Robert and Clare Pattinson. His mother worked for a modeling agency, and his father ran a car importing business.
Pattinson appeared in the film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. His leading role as Twilight vampire Edward Cullen is what launched him into the Hollywood spotlight.
Stewart began her career as a child actress. She was born to film industry parents. Her father John was a producer and director, and her mother Jules was a screenwriter. Stewart landed a small part in a 1999 Disney channel film, The Thirteenth Year. It was her 2002 appearance in the Jody Foster thriller Panic Room that provided her with her first big-screen break, and then in 2008, her role in Twilight catapulted her into super-stardom.
While it is not clear if Pattinson’s homeless stay at Stewart’s home means they are once again a couple, it is apparent that the two film stars remain close friends in spite of the spotlight and years of controversy. Pattinson is currently shooting a new film in Ontario, Canada.
