The Summer of 2012: A Glorious Mess of Drama and Twihard Meltdowns

The summer of 2012 was the gold standard for gossip headlines, culminating in Kristen Stewart cheating on Robert Pattinson with her married director. Us Weekly obtained the photos, and all hell broke loose for a month straight. Even back then, some people claimed that the entire relationship was a showmance or that the scandal was timed for promotion. However, Stewart recently revealed to Howard Stern that they were together.

Stewart on Pattinson and Their Love

Stewart talked about Pattinson and their love during her interview with Howard Stern. When asked about Pattinson,

Stewart stated that it’s “weird” being honest about their relationship and that she’s never really been allowed to “say what happened…Because I was so self-conscious about seeming like an attention-seeker. We were together for years, that was my first [love]. He’s the best.”

When asked whether their relationship was a fauxmance,

Stewart responded, “You really think at this point, after all these years, that’s how I live my life?”

She also spoke about how her dislike of the paparazzi ruined some of their loved-up moments as they struggled to decide whether to share their romance openly or “put it on lock.”

Stewart on Marriage and Love

Stewart revealed that she wanted to marry Pattinson, saying, “I wanted to … yeah…I don’t know, I’m not a super-duper traditionalist, but at the same time … every relationship I’ve ever been in, I thought that was it. I’ve never really been the most casual person.”

When asked whether she’s in love right now,

Stewart confirmed, “Yeah…the answer is yes,” and added that she’ll “absolutely” propose.

She is currently dating Dylan Meyer, but as someone who cycles through girlfriends every six to nine months, Meyer shouldn’t expect a ring anytime soon.

Fondness and Nostalgia

Stewart and Pattinson have both moved on from their relationship, but it’s clear that they were once deeply in love. Despite the scandal leading to their breakup, Stewart hopes they both think back on that time with fondness and nostalgia.
