Kristen Stewart May Have Cheated Because Life Wasn't 'Crazy' Enough for Her

Eye Roll 23

kristen stewart elle june 2012It's been several days since the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal broke, and we're still having trouble wrapping our heads around it. It just doesn't add up or logically make sense. Twi-Hards aren't the only ones astounded by the fact that Kristen would stray from Robert Pattinson -- especially with a married, 41-year-old man. But experts are now saying that the big question Rob was thisclose to popping might have something to do with it ...

Although I've only found myself really wanting my guy to propose, I can imagine that really wishing he wouldn't is an equally harrowing emotion ... in a completely different way. So harrowing, in fact, that it might have been THE reason Kristen Stewart cheated on Rob.

If this affair really did happen and isn't just some wacky stunt to sell more Breaking Dawn: Part 2 tickets, it's not so crazy to think Kristen may have pursued it as an escape route from her grown-up relationship. As Carole Leiberman, M.D. tells Hollywood Life:

One of the explanations for Kristen's cheating – though not the only one – is that she was afraid of commitment. She was scared that Rob was going to propose and felt that, at 22, it would be too soon to become tied down to one man. Kristen was ambivalent. She did it in a public way to make sure that Rob found out about it. Yet, she also believed that she could get him back.

I could see there being a lot of truth to that, and if so, it's really sad. But 22 is really young to "settle down" with one person. Can we really blame her for being freaked out?

Then again ...  Let's just rewind a moment, shall we, back to this priceless quote 22-year-old Kristen gave Elle for their June issue:

I feel boring. I feel like, 'Why is everything so easy for me?' I can’t wait for something crazy to f**king happen to me. Just life. I want someone to f**k me over.

Wow, hello, spoiled brat-dom. What a completely crazy, ridiculous thing to say. Guess some people -- especially actors and actresses, go figure -- are drama junkies who will go to extremes, even sabotaging one of the best things in their life to experience "something crazy." I wouldn't be surprised if she cheated as a way to "f**k herself over!"

So, on a second thought, this could prove she simply wasn't mature enough to handle a real relationship. Maybe she did exactly what she need to in order to make her childish heart's desire come true.

Do you think Kristen Stewart self-sabotaged her relationship with Rob?

It always irritates me when people say that any particular age is too young to settle down with one person. The concept of adolescence is fairly new; before the last century people went from child to adult, and they all did fine. My husband and I have been together since we were sixteen, and married since we were twenty; I wouldn't do it any differently if I had the choice. Most of our friends have similar stories.

As a person who settled down later in life, I am able to recognize and appreciate the things that I was able to experience prior to marriage and children. When you get married at 22, you don't have that perspective.

I think you've hit the nail on the head. Finally a sensible answer to a mind boggling question. Since she cheated but then is devastated cos she loves him SO much... Poor Rob

I don't agree with the comment about being too young to settle down at 22. I got married at 19, had my 1st son 5 days before my 21st birthday and had my 2nd  3 months after my 23rd birthday...however I don't believe Kristen is mature enough to handle serious, committed, adult relationship yet. I've been thinking sabotage from the beginning because of that magazine interview. She's a spoiled brat who hurt the one she loved because she was bored. I hope Rob can finally find someone who will be able to reciprocate the feelings he's able to have for another. I also hope that Kristen grows up sometime very soon!!

i don't think being 22 is an excuse but I do think that in a recent interview she was alluding to her life not being crazy enough so that could have had something to do with it. It's also likely that she knew she and Rob Pattinson were getting serious, and crazy as this sound, she may have done it to try to determine how she felt about Rob Pattinson and the idea of a permanent long-term committment.

Gee.  Sounds like I was right.  Hmm.  Imagine that.

Still a monumentally stupid move on her part, but the motive makes sense.

I got married at 23 so I don't think being too young is an excuse....I can see that her personality sucks! Many of us wish we have what she has....ugh....

Age is NEVER an excuse. I was engaged at 19 married my husband at the age of 20 just 4 days after our first child was born and we now have 3 children together and I am only 27 and still as happy as can be :) Rob and Kristen are my most fave celebs just don't know what to even think about this...Still wondering why there is hardly any focus on Rupert who was seem still wearing his wedding band and still with his wife and children A LOT is not adding up

I am so sad that this happen to them, but at the same time I'm so disappointed in Kristen b/c she ruined a perfectly good relationship. The US Weekly pictures obviously weren't set up b/c if they were, why would both parties issue apologies? What's worse in the case of Rob & Kristen is how badly he's taking it. Here's a guy who was HEAD OVER HEELS in love with his girl and she did him in the worse way possible. He even was quoted in a magazine just a few months ago as to question cheating and how if he's in a relationship with someone he's giving it 110%! (Swoon! Sigh!) No one knows the extent of Rob's pain, but from him cancelling his red carpet premiere of Cosmopolis later this month, that says A LOT!! We're here for you Rob! I'm married with a 4 month old and I have a extra room that I can very easily let Rob stay in!!! Wink Wink!!! ;)


I truly hope he can get over this and move on with his life... with or without Kristen! :S
