Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart pre-cheating scandal [Getty]
Quieten down at the back - Robert Pattinson has FINALLY spoken about his split from Kristen Stewart in 2012. And his comments couldn’t be more timely. Last week Liberty Ross and Rupert Sanders’ divorce settlement was made public, two years after the director was pictured kissing Kristen in a layby, causing the internet to suffer a full-on nervous breakdown from which it is only now beginning to recover. Here’s what we learned when R Patz sat down to chat to Esquire...
1. He’s philosophical about the split:
‘S**t happens, you know?’, said Rob.
2. And he thinks that cheating is normal:
‘It's just young people...it's normal! And honestly, who gives a s**t?, he added.

3. But he didn’t like talking about it:
‘The hardest part was talking about it afterwards. Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can't predict. It's like that scene in Doubt, where he's talking about how to take back gossip? They throw all those feathers from a pillow into the sky and you've got to go and collect all the feathers.’
4. And he doesn’t get why he’s still papped:
‘I don't understand why. I think it goes through periods where you're assigned 'this is the guy to follow'. But whenever I see a bunch of paparazzi hanging out, I always think, 'Oh God, what have they found out!' Oh, that love child! I totally forgot!"
