After a few days ofinvasive Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart coverage, it’s nice to see outlets getting back to good old-fashionedwrong reporting.
According to a British magazine Showbiz Spycites, Pattinson’s recent visit to Montreal was meant to help Stewart get through a “breakdown.”
An anonymous “source” for the tabloid claims Stewart “can’t handle” her fame and “refused to go to this year’sTeen Choice Awards.”
“She’s filming On The Road in Montreal and could have gone,” continues the mag, “but didn’t want to have to face the media spotlight yet again.” Supposedly, Pattinson “knew that she was going through a hard time,” and flew immediately to Canada to “boost her spirits.”
Oh, but the magazine insists this “crisis” has been going for a long time. Its source alleges Stewart “has been at the breaking point ever since they finished filming Eclipse.”
Let’s all take some deep breaths and return to reality.
Kristen Stewart did not have a “breakdown.”
While it’s true that Stewart didn’t attend the Teen Choice Awards because of On The Roadobligations, it’s just as true that she’s routinely made appearances in the months sinceEclipse closed production. In fact, she presented a preview of that very film at the MTV Movie Awards.
Stewart has been in the public eye for years. Her discomfort with some aspects of celebrity is well documented, but that’s all it is: discomfort. There was no sudden panic while shooting On The Road. There was no cross-continent rescue mission for Pattinson.
But tabs feel the need to drum up drama instead of reporting what the Montreal trip actuallywas — a perfectly happy visit. It’s too bad that crisis sells.
