(Newser) Twilight fans are already devastated by the dissolution of Kristen Stewart's relationship with Robert Pattinson, but the latest will surely cause renewed sobbing: Pattinson was weeks away from proposing when he learned of Stewart's betrayal, the Mirror reports. "He had bought the house in Los Angeles to be their home and saw them staying there for a long time," says a source, adding that Pattinson was going to pop the question by the end of the summer. More developments:

  • The LA Times takes a look at how the incriminating photos of Stewart and her Snow White director Rupert Sanders came about. It wasn't until the pictures were developed that "we realized, 'Oh, my God, she's not just cheating on Rob—this guy is married and has kids,'" says the owner of FameFlyNet, the agency that took the pictures. No official word, but a former bureau chief for Us Weekly says the magazine probably spent about $250,000 on the photos.

  • Meanwhile, the Sun has what may be the most depressing story so far, reporting that Pattinson has started "asking strangers out to keep him company," according to a source. "He went out for drinks with a woman staying in his hotel and he told her it was 'ridiculous' he had nobody to talk to. He’s been spending most of his days off playing computer games."
  • Sources initially claimed Stewart's indiscretion with Sanders was just a brief fling, but the director's brother-in-law claims the affair lasted for months. "It was from the last half of filming and all through post-production, clear into last week," he says. The People adds that pictures of Stewart and Sanders "looking cozy" at a Berlin restaurant on May 15 have also been uncovered.

I think it's sad that we have divided views of others when their relationships don't work out..U never hear anyone say "I hope they try to fix it",after all we are all humans n we all make mistakes no matter what the situation was..But all u do hear is what disgusting behavior it was or that he's this or she's that..Whether u walk in their shoes now or before,it's their choices n I think for a married man to be cheating on his wife for someone he lusted after,knowing Stewart was in relationship was selfish..Don't believe she just willing went to him as much as she loved Pattinson.Hopefully Stewart/Pattinson try to mend the fences between them n look toward continuing their life together,true love knows no biases..And so many have built yrs together over worse..
