After weeks of ignoring Kristen Stewart’s frantic texts and phone calls, Robert Pattinson has finally broken the silence, reports In Touch.
“He’s been drinking like crazy,” insiders told the magazine. “He’s been drunk dialing Kristen.”
“He had been avoiding her calls, but now they’re talking. Well, they’re barely talking,” the pal added. “There’s a lot of dead silence on the phone.”
Though Kristen has reportedly been in tears and telling friends she’s desperate to get Rob back after the affair with “Snow White” director Rupert Sanders, she’s been unable to come up with the words to win her ex’s forgiveness.
Meanwhile, relationship experts tell HollywoodLife.com that Rob needs to cool down and sort out his feelings on his own before having a heart to heart with the girl who broke his heart.
“He has to sort out his emotions before confronting her. Otherwise, he may become even more hurt and confused by what she may say. In other words, he cannot meet with her until he has built up an emotional reserve and has his own sense of clarity with regards to her cheating,” relationship expert, Diana Falzone, said.
“Optimally, he’ll want to share his feelings in a way Kristen will hear him. When someone is angry, all any listener will hear is anger. When he talks with her again, he should know what he wants and where he wants to go,” Dr. Gilda Carle, Today’s 30-second therapist, added.
But the couple’s fans still have some hope as a close friend of Rob’s recently spoke with Us Weekly, revealing that Rob has no hope of resisting Kristen, no matter how badly she broke his heart by cheating on him with director Rupert Sanders.
“He’s putty in her hands,” Rob’s friend told the mag. “Once they’re on [the Breaking Dawn Part 2] press tour, it will be hard for him to resist getting back together with her.”
Stewart’s mother, meanwhile, is staying out of it. “It’s not my affair,” Jules Stewart, a Hollywood script supervisor, told OK! magazine. She did, however, take issue with all the media attention the affair has received. “My daughter is being hounded,” she is quoted as saying.
Pattinson has stayed off the radar since Stewart released a statement on July 25 admitting an affair with married “Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders and has not spoken about the affair in public so far, MTV writes.
In her statement, Stewart apologized profusely for the affair with the father of two, who is married to actress/model Liberty Ross.
“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.”
For her part, Kristen Stewart is trying hard to remain out of the public eye. It was announced today that she had dropped out of starring in the upcoming film “Cali,” and will be replaced by Amber Heard, according to Gawker.
Meanwhile, Pattinson will be making two televised appearances next week, stopping by The Daily Show on Monday and Good Morning America on Wednesday.
Rob’s first interview is booked for Monday night on Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show.” Pattinson will sit down with the funnyman on the same night as David Cronenberg movie “Cosmopolis” premiere in New York for what will be his first televised interview since the scandal broke.
Cronenberg’s adaptation of a Don DeLillo novel about a Gatsby-esque billionaire (Eric Packer) whose attempt to get a haircut spins wildly out of control. It largely takes place inside Packer’s white stretch limo as it makes its way across Manhattan and he takes stock of his life.
