Rob Pattinson (pictured with Reese Witherspoon)
showed up ALONE to the Country Music AwardsWord on the street is that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart might be headed toward a breakup. Oh no! After R-Patz showed up to the Country Music Awards solo when he was expected to show with K-Stew, The Mirror reports that the couple is officially "on a break."
The Mirror's studio source reports:
Things have been a bit rocky for a while ... Rob figured they should officially cool things off and have some time to figure out what they each want.
There have been a few tears but the pair remain friendly. Kristen is hopeful of a reconciliation once Rob has finished promotion for his latest movie. But as things stand, they’re on a break and just mates.
Rob has been away from Breaking Dawn filming, promoting his new film with Reese Witherspoon, Water for Elephants, so he and Kristen have had to spend some time apart. But just because a couple spends time on separate professional ventures doesn't mean they're on the rocks. Hasn't the rumor mill ever heard the old saying about absence making the heart grow fonder? Just because a couple isn't connected at the hip every second doesn't mean it's over.
We did find an opposing view on the subject. Celebuzz questioned their own studio sources, who said:
They are still together. This is nothing new -- they have been apart many times before.
What do you think? Is this just another celebrity breakup rumor or do you think things are on the rocks?
