Despite's public apology, has reportedly packed his bags and moved out of the Los Angeles home the couple shared.
According to reports, 26-year-old Robert Pattinson has left the Los Angeles home he shared with girlfriend Kristen Stewart, 22, after reports of her having an affair with Rupert Sanders hit the headlines Tuesday night. The pair had been together for three years after meeting on the sets of “Twilight.”
Pattinson decided to leave home following Stewart’s admission of guilt over the cheating scandal with married “Snow White and the Huntsmen” director Rupert Sanders. Photos of a cargo van in the driveway of the couple's home surfaced online Thursday.
Earlier this week, US Weekly published photos of Kristen Stewart getting cozy with her 41-year-old British director Rupert Sanders who is married to model-actress Liberty Ross.
On Wednesday, Kristen Stewart admitted she cheated on her boyfriend of three years and apologized to her longtime love for her affair with Sanders, a father of two.
"I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected," she said in a statement to People magazine. "This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized 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."
Rupert Sanders also issued an apology to the magazine. "I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family," the statement read. "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."
Robert Pattinson has yet to speak publicly on the betrayal of Kristen Stewart, but a friend close to the actor says the cheating scandal not just cost him a girlfriend, he has lost the woman he wanted to marry.
According to sources, Robert Pattinson has remained silent but is said to be heartbroken and shocked by the scandal. A new issue of US Weekly reported that the couple’s relationship seemed stronger than ever in recent months. At least from Pattinson’s view, as the young star had began making plans to pop the question to Stewart.
Pattinson wanted to "spend the rest of his life with her," according to a close friend.
