Eyebrows are raising throughout Hollywood as rumors allege that “Twilight” franchise star Kristen Stewart had a dalliance outside of her reported relationship with "Twilight" co-star Robert Pattinson.
People magazine as well as Us Weekly are citing anonymous sources who claim that the 22-year-old had a recent fling with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders. Sanders is said to be married with two kids.
While source closes to the situation told People the two were not involved romantically, one reportedly said that "Kristen is absolutely devastated. ... It was a mistake and a complete lapse in judgment."
This source went on to say that Stewart "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."
Pattinson and Stewart met on the set of 2008's "Twilight" and have been linked since, although neither actor has been blatantly overt about any presumed relationship. Stewart herself has not responded to the allegations, and neither has a rep for Sanders.
If there was trouble in paradise, it certainly wasn’t evident on Sunday when Stewart, Pattinson and Taylor Lautner accepted the lifetime achievement award for the “Twilight” films at the Teen Choice Awards.
