Kristen Stewart’s ex is reportedly finding her “hard to shake”.
The 23-year-old actress’ long-term relationship with her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson was shattered after she had an affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders in 2012. Although she and Robert tried to get things back on track they eventually split, with Rupert’s wife Liberty Ross filing for divorce.
It’s now been suggested Rupert, 42, still holds a torch for the actress.
“His family is wrecked. Even though he has admitted to everyone in his life that the long-brewing affair was a terrible idea, he still hasn’t been able to get over his feelings for Kristen,” an insider told RadarOnline.
“He fell in love with her a long time before he laid a finger on her, and he’s finding it difficult to shake.”
It has been alleged that the director is still in touch with Kristen. He is reportedly finding it hard to come to terms with the way his life has changed over the last 18 months.
“They are still in contact, and incredibly, Rupert is still hoping for a future together. But Kristen has come to her senses and doesn’t want to damage her image more,” the source claimed.
“Rupert definitely lost more in this whole scandal. He’s devastated they can’t be together.
“Rupert, against all better judgment, still holds out hope that he and Kristen can get things going again, but he’s completely deluded – she would never put her career on the line like that again.”
There have been repeated claims that Kristen wants to rekindle her romance with Robert, although he is said to be happier apart. He has got rid of the home they shared in Los Angeles, said to be one of the hardest of his decisions for his ex-girlfriend to accept.
