Kristen Stewart probably has the most colorful and controversial love life in the industry today. This year alone, the "Twilight" actress has been in a slew of relationships which drew various reactions - some are positive while the rest couldn't help but raise an eyebrow. Let's take a look back at her colorful and controversial love life below.
Kristen Stewart And Robert Pattinson: An Immortal Love Story
Ever since Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson starred in the phenomenal hit franchise "Twilight," avid fans of the film have been rooting for them to get together in real life. The chemistry between the two was so strong that everyone was convinced they would definitely hit it off. In fact, they even have their own couple name - Robsten.
Sure enough, after numerous "lovey-dovey" sightings, Stewart and Pattinson finally announced what every Robsten fans have been dying to hear - they are officially dating! Edward Cullen and Bella Swan's love story was finally brought to reality by the two. Fans rejoiced by the couple's fairytale-like love story.
However, not all fairytales have happy endings. And Robsten is one of them. Much to fans' utter shock and dismay, Stewart and Pattinson were shaken off by a controversy that marks the beginning of their end. In July 2012, scandalous photos of Stewart and "Snow White And The Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders surfaced online. The said photos revealed Stewart's alleged affair with the said director.
Stewart eventually released an apology for what she has done in an attempt to save the relationship. "Kristen is absolutely devastated," says one source. "It was a mistake and a complete lapse in judgment." The source added: "She wasn't having an affair with Rupert. It was just a fleeting moment that shouldn't have happened. She never meant to hurt anyone. She's a good person who just made a bad choice."
The heart-breaking reality hit Pattinson really hard that he decided to pull the plug on their relationship. This is despite rumors that the actor was madly in love with her to the point that he even planned to propose before the controversial admission.
"Robert hoped to marry Kristen and was making preparations to spring a proposal before she admitted cheating. He had bought the house in Los Angeles to be their home and saw them staying there for a long time. Now Rob is angry - he's left the mansion and not spoken to her since. They have exchanged heated text messages only," the source revealed. Talk about the one that got away.
A Change Of Heart: Kristen Stewart Goes For A Girl, Soko
Following the controversial split of Stewart and Pattinson, the actress seems to have a change of preference when it comes to dating. The 26-year-old actress, who fans loved for her typical clingy girl character in "Twilight," is now a certified tomboy.
On March 2016, Stewart was spotted looking romantic with Stephanie "Soko" Sokolinski during a trip to Paris. Since then, the couple has been out and about in PDA-filled moments around Los Angeles. Soko was even caught sucking on the actress' thumb while picking up a takeout at a Los Feliz restaurant.
At one point, Soko admitted being totally in love with the "Café Society" actress, saying, "I'm very, very, very in love and very happy in a relationship." Despite their age gap at that time - Stewart, 25 and Soko, 30 - the two were still able to get along well and work things out. At least for a few months.
Around May 2016, it was confirmed that the two called it quits. Their short-lived romance was the talk of the town that time, considering it was Stewart's first public relationship with a girl. Coincidentally, the sudden rift between the couple happened after Stewart attended the Met Gala where her ex, Robert Pattinson was in attendance, flaunting his fiancée FKA Twigs. It remains unclear if it has something to do with the breakup.
Secret No More: Kristen Stewart And Her Publicized Romance With Alicia Cargile
It was rumored that the real reason behind her split with Soko was her rekindled romance with her former personal assistant, Alicia Cargile. The two was rumored to have a secret relationship prior to Soko.
After months of speculations, Stewart, who is known to be notoriously private with her past relationships, finally confirmed the real score between them. In an interview with Elle UK, the "Personal Shopper" star opened up about her relationship with Cargile and how things have changed since she started dating her.
"Right now I'm just really in love with my girlfriend. We've broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and this time, I was like, 'Finally, I can feel again.'" Stewart even gushed about her girlfriend back in August saying, "Look how cute she is. I love her so much."
And it looks like Cargile has definitely played a huge part in Stewart's coming out. The actress claims that she's now more willing to talk about her relationship because of the positive acceptance it represents. "I would never talk about any of my relationships before, but once I started dating girls it seemed like there was an opportunity to represent something really positive," she explained. "I still want to protect my personal life, but I don't want to seem like I'm protecting the idea, so that does sort of feel like I owe something to people."
Despite the positivity of their budding romance, their love story was also cut short. There were claims that the actress was just too busy to be in a serious relationship and that the split was amicable. "Kristen is just so busy right now that she does not have the time to be in a serious relationship," a source claims.
Hitting It Up: Kristen Stewart And Her Latest Flame, St. Vincent
After yet another controversial split, Stewart appears to be moving on quite fast with Cara Delevingne's ex, St. Vincent. The two were rumored to be an item when they were spotted multiple times looking smitten with each other. The actress even tagged the musician along to the screening of her movie "Certain Women." They were claims that two were inseparable since then. "They spent almost every day together after that," a source claims.
Since then, the couple has been spotted on PDA-filled dates and getaways including an afternoon stroll in the streets of New York, a sushi lunch date at Soba-Ya, a star-studded evening party and recently, at Vogue Fashion Fund show held in Los Angeles.
Although the couple has not officially confirmed their relationship, their actions (and photos) speak louder than words. To date, the two still appears to be crazy in love with each other as they flaunt their romantic side publicly.
Stewart's love life sure is unpredictable. Who would've have thought the girl who captured the heart of a strikingly gorgeous vampire in the movie will transform into a totally different person in real life? Despite the criticisms, it's still good to know that Stewart continues to do what makes her life happy and colorful. Way to go KStew!
