Kristen Stewart getting into Rupert Sanders car? Are lovers secretly meeting again?
It would appear Kristen Stewart has been spending time with her former lover Rupert Sanders once again, with new photographs showing her getting into a car with a man who bears an uncanny resemblance to the director.
Last year, Kristen Stewart’s secret affair with married director Rupert Sanders came to light in July causing one of the biggest celebrity shocks of 2012.
This time, Kristen Stewart, who first met Rupert Sanders when they worked on Snow White And The Huntsman together in 2011, was seen climbing into the passenger seat of a dark car after a night out with friends at Mexican restaurant Malo Taqueria in Silver Lake, California, on Sunday.
In addition to Kristen Stewart’s mystery male companion looking suspiciously like her former lover, the vehicle in question appeared to be a black Acura – the same model as the one owned by Rupert Sanders.
It would appear the incident took place on the same day Kristen Stewart’s Twilight co-star boyfriend, Robert Pattinson, jetted out of Los Angeles.
Kristen Stewart, 23, had been enjoying an evening out with a group at girlfriends at the Mexican eatery, the same location where Robert Pattinson – who she briefly split from when details of her affair with Rupert Sanders, 42, came to light last year – threw her a romantic birthday party last week.
Details of Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders’s affair came to light when they were pictured cuddling and kissing in July 2012.
The actress immediately issued a groveling public apology to her long-time love, Robert Pattinson, with the pair briefly splitting, before briefly reconciling their romance.
Kristen Stewart said at the time: “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.”
Meanwhile, Rupert Sanders issued an equally gushing apology to his wife, Liberty Ross, 34, and their two children, Skyla, 8, and 6-year-old son Tennyson.
He said: “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.”
While Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson managed to get their relationship back on track, British model Liberty Ross – who played Kristen’s mother in the Snow White film – filed for divorce from Rupert Sanders in January, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason behind the marital split.
Liberty Ross petitioned for joint physical and legal custody of the couple’s two children.
According to reports, Liberty Ross couldn’t move on from Rupert Sanders’s infidelity with Kristen Stewart, although the couple are understood to have attended counseling sessions late last year.
A friend said: “Liberty tried for a reconciliation but it was impossible. The mistrust went too deep. The decision to divorce was hers.”
In her only public comments about the affair – in an interview at the end of last year – Liberty Ross said: “I believe that we’re all on journeys and we are all given lessons at certain times in our lives.
“Sometimes, when things seem really bad, you have to be able to see the good and learn from it and move forward as graciously as possible.”
Kristen Stewart is set to reprise her leading role in the Snow White And The Huntsman sequel later this year, but Rupert Sanders has been dropped from the project.
