It has been reported that Robert Pattinson had plans to ask his cheating girlfriend Kristen Pattinson to marry him before it was revealed she had been unfaithful.

Pattinson was set to get on one knee at the end of summer and had hoped that their £5 million (Dh28.9 million) love nest would become their martial home.

Speaking to the Mirror, a source said: “Robert hoped to marry Kristen and was making preparations to spring a proposal before she admitted cheating.”

The source continued: “He had bought the house in Los Angeles to be their home and saw them staying there for a long time.”

But those plans came to a halt last week, when the actor’s world was rocked as pictures of his girlfriend, 22, kissing 41-year-old Snow White And The Huntsman director and married father-of-two Rupert Sanders surfaced.

Telling of how things are now between Pattinson and Pattinson, the source claims the two have not spoken and only communicated via text message.

“Now Rob is angry — he’s left the mansion and not spoken to her since. They have exchanged heated text messages only.”

In an interview with Black Book, Pattinson revealed he was busy writing love songs for his beloved prior to her affair scandal emerging.

He also gave insight into what those songs might sound like, speaking of his pre-fame gigging days, when he would perform at open mic nights to “about three other performers and the bar’s waitress”.

Speaking to the US publication, Pattinson said when he first moved to Los Angeles he would sing at quirky venues like The Rainbow Room on Sunset Boulevard.

He said: “[The songs] sounded a bit like Astral Weeks. I was just trying to rip off Van Morrison... the audiences were tiny — about three other performers and the bar’s waitress.”

People are also reporting that one day after he abandoned their shared Loz Feliz mansion, she followed suit and is no longer there either.

They are also said to not be on speaking terms.

However, despite not being ready to talk to Stewart, Pattinson instead wants to have a “man to man” chat with Sanders.

The devastated British actor moved out of the California home he shared with her after incriminating photographs showing Stewart and Sanders together were released last Tuesday.

“Rob wants to have a man to man chat with Rupert to find out exactly what happened between him and Kristen,” a source told Radar.

“Kristen has already betrayed his trust by cheating, so he can’t be sure that she will tell him exactly what went on between her and Rupert. Rupert has a wife and a family to save, so Rob feels like he has nothing left to lose and would be honest with him.”

Sanders, 41, is married to model and actress Liberty Ross and they have two children together.

The inside source told the website Pattinson feels “doubly betrayed” because he “trusted” Sanders as the director of Stewart’s film Snow White.

“Rob really was blindsided by this and he’s going through the typical stages of being cheated on.

“He was hurt and heartbroken, then angry and p****d off, and now he just wants answers. He feels like he needs to know exactly what happened, how far it went and how many times, so he can figure out if this is something he can move past.

“He’s not ready to talk with Kristen, it’s too painful, so he’s going to Rupert.”

Even if Pattinson doesn’t want to see or hear from Stewart, the pair will be reunited at the premiere of the final instalment of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, in November.

Stewart released a statement saying: “I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused.

“This momentary indiscretion has jeopardised the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”

However, Radar’s insider said that recent events had Pattinson “questioning Kristen’s apology”.

They said: “Rob just doesn’t know who or what to believe right now. And he’ll do whatever it takes to find out the truth.”

It was reported yesterday by The UK Mirror that the 26-year-old British actor “couldn’t believe what he was hearing” when Stewart told him the fling was just a “one-off”.

The newspaper’s source added: “Rob is devastated and deeply hurt. They spoke on the phone and he said, ‘You’ve completely humiliated me. All the trust has gone.’

“He still can’t fathom why she cheated. Kristen is begging for another chance. Robert is undecided.”

The couple were last seen in public at the Teen Choice Awards together on July 22 looking like a decidedly happy couple.

The actor made his feelings regarding infidelity clear in April, telling Vanity Fair: “There’s a thing I’ve never got: That is, why do people cheat?”

Pattinson explained that while he “can understand the impulse”, he doesn’t comprehend “how you can keep two relationships going at the same time”.

“I’m not the casual-affair kind of guy,” he said. “If I choose to be with someone, it’s because I really want it. When I have a relationship, I’m 100 per cent into it.”
