kristen stewart robert pattinson twilightAre Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart back together or totally broken up? The answer to that question seems to depend on which tabloid you ask and the day. Today, for instance, HollywoodLife.com says they've been dunzo for a while now ... But they're not planning on making their split public until they fulfill at least one more responsibility: Hawking the Breaking Dawn: Part 2 DVD, due out March 2.

According to an "insider," Robsten "were asked to not announce a break-up or any relationship trouble until the DVD has been out for a few weeks and everything has sold. Since the first couple weeks are the times when the DVD will sell like wildfire. The more DVDs sold, the more money for them. So they are abiding by the request.” Wow ... completely crazy or makes total sense?! Gotta say, I'm thinkin' the latter.

Yeah, call me a Robsten conspiracy theorist if you must, but all along, there have been reasons to believe that their entire relationship or at least various publicity "opportunities" have been as scripted as their films. The cheating scandal had us all raising a skeptical eyebrow. The reunion? Way too well-timed. And now ... of course producers are going to want them to keep up the ruse until all of their pockets are sufficiently lined. So annoying!

Not to mention, can you imagine being in Rob and Kristen's shoes? Whoa, to have your love life micromanaged so closely by executives who are profiting off of it? It's certainly a twisted, steep price to pay for fame. But I guess ... they're richer and more famous as a result?

More from The Stir: Kristen Stewart May Be Sabotaging Her Future With Robert Pattinson

It really makes you think, just how many Hollywood relationships are actually legit? Man, it's hard enough to have a conversation with someone in that town without thinking the other person's just making it up as they go along! The cutthroat, opportunistic, and greedy culture drives tons of phony-baloney romances. So let's not be too scandalized or surprised if Rob and Kristen's happened to be one of them all along ...

Do you believe there may be some truth to this gossip? Do you think the relationship has been "managed" from the get-go, since the scandal, or just in the wake of a split?
