Kristen StewartThough reports initially said that Kristen Stewart said no to Robert Pattinson's invite to spend Christmas with him to avoid family awkwardness, there may be a new reason for her hesitation now. Rumors are heating up that Kristen's involved in a secret relationship with Lane Garrison, her co-star in Camp X-Ray. Of course, any time Kristen is seen touching, talking to, or even standing next to a good-looking man, especially a co-star, romance gossip is inevitably bound to follow.

But still, you'd think with all the talk about a reconciliation with RPattz, then she turns him down to spend the holidays together, there could be something else brewing and adding fuel to the fire of a budding relationship between her and Lane. I mean, why else would you turn down the chance to spend Christmas in London with Robert Pattinson?!

Even the fact that Lane said of his co-star that she is a good athlete made headlines and had eyebrows raised about what that really means. Clearly good athlete = we have been secretly dating and I'm desperately in love with her.

“Kristen Stewart is an amazing athlete and an amazing golfer. We built a driving range on the set of Camp X-Ray and she can hit the ball perfectly straight like 220 yards. She’s awesome,” he told Hollywood Life. “Great golfer, she can throw a football pretty well, and she’s really good at basketball. We had a blast -- she was having a great time!”

It's nice to hear that KStew can get away from the prying paparazzi and have fun on set with a co-star. But still, you can't help but wonder if there's anything behind what Garrison is saying (probably not, but just go with it). What started all of this were reports that, in August, Garrison moved into Kristen's Los Feliz mansion.

"Kristen was enjoying Lane's company and he was spending a lot of time with her at her home," a source revealed. "He doesn't live in LA so he moved out of his hotel when they became close and moved into the guest wing of her house in Los Feliz."

Add to this her decline of RPattz's holiday invite, and, well ... who knows whether or not any of this is true, but all signs are pointing to the fact that Kristen's finally moving on from her once tumultuous relationship. If it turns out that Kristen ends up spending the holidays with Lane instead, oh boy, let the insane, obsessive gossip begin!

Do you think part of the reason Kristen turned down Robert's invite was because of her new relationship with Lane?
