UPDATE: Kristen Stewart has just released the statement below:
'I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardised the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry.'
Moments after, Rupert Sanders released this statement:
'I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.'
Kristen and Rupert with the Snow White and the Huntsman cast
Grazia Daily is aghast. Wicked whispers are whirling that Kristen Stewart, one half of the real life Twilight dream couple, may have cheated on Robert Pattinson with the director of Snow White and the Huntsman. Say it isn't so!
Kristen became Rupert Sanders' new muse when he cast her as the lead role in Snow White and the Huntsman before the pair were spotted filming the swashbuckling film in Wales. Kristen and Robert Rupert then spent many a-week promoting the film together around the world, gracing red carpets from London to LA.
Now, American magazine Us Weekly claims to have photographic evidence of the incident, which they say happened in July. 'Kristen is absolutely devastated,' one source supposedly told People.com. 'It was a mistake and a complete lapse in judgment. She wasn't having an affair with Rupert. It was just a fleeting moment that shouldn't have happened.' Kristen and Rupert have not confirmed the story.
As well as a heartbroken R-Pattz, Rupert has a wife, Liberty Ross, as well as two children. You'll remember the stunning model looked oh-so-glam wearing a sparkling Tom Ford gown at the film's London premiere in May, which she attended in support of her hubby. To add to the messy situation, Liberty starred in SWATH as Kristen's mother and we have to admit: there is a striking similarity between the two. See the super-slim face, the dark hair, the pale skin, those sharp brows framing cat-like eyes…uh oh.
After the red carpet rounds at the premiere, Grazia Daily saw the trio up-close when we attended the swanky SWATH party at the Royal Courts of Justice. As our snap above shows, Kristen and Rupert spent much of the evening together, watching the band while Rob sat at a nearby table talking to his sister, Lizzie.
As for us fash fans, we can't help but think that if Kristen did fall into the arms of an older (tres dapper) man, it might explain her sudden style shift. We've seen the tomboyish star stalking the red carpet looking hotter than ever in recent months, dressed in everything from Balenciaga to Balmain, which has won her the top spot in Grazia's Best Dressed list.
Most noticeably, the 22-year-old rocked up to the Cannes Film Festival in May looking faboosh swathed in a striking scarlet Reem Acra gown that had our jaws dropping. Then she slipped into that studded Balmain ensemble for the film's Australian premiere before opting for that rather revealing Marchesa gown in London. C'mon, hasn't your style changed a little when you meet a new love interest? Exactly.
But why not make up your own minds. Take a look through the gallery above to see Kristen's sexed-up style and let us know if her wardrobe really does speak a thousand words.
