Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders: One Big Publicity Stunt?

The news of KStew and her hunky Snow White and the Huntsmen director Rupert Sanders getting busy shocked the celeb gossip world. But is it true? At CollegeCandy we’re calling BS, and here’s why:

KStew released a public statement. Wait, let’s get this straight. The news came out just yesterday and already oday she released a statement. Keep in mind, she’s not married, doesn’t have children and nothing illegal went down. When have we ever heard of a person with no family ties to their significant other issuing a public apology over a simple cheating claim? Oh, that’s right, never.

Rupert released a statement not long after Kristen. Once again, why so many statements? When has anyone in Hollywood owned up to crap this quickly?

If they were really “just recently” photographed how would Liberty know yet? And if she knew about the affair prior to the photos being released, why wait until now to say something

KStew FINALLY opened up about her relationship with RPatz in her PUBLIC apology. Great timing, girl.

She has been seen in increasingly girly outfits, holding hands with Robert, getting photographed on dates etc. Could this alleged affair be nothing more than another attempt to solidify her as a straight female in Hollywood and dispel pervading rumors that she’s gay?

Why would you let yourself get photographed if you DIDN’T want the world to know about your affair? Guilty parties typically don’t indulge in PDA, keeping their illicit activities reserved for private moments when there is zero chance paparazzi will see.

So what’s my conclusion? Kristen has been keeping her alleged homosexuality under wraps by creating tons of buzz about her heterosexual relationships. We’re saying publicity stunt all the way with all parties involved — money is being exchanged and mega amounts of publicity are up for grabs, everyone’s going to be cashing in. We also speculate that if Rupert and Liberty get divorced, it was probably already going to happen and they probably made bank on this story.

Now we just have to wait to see what RPatz says…

    *Applauds* totally agree.

  2. Alli says:

    Wait really? Because I'm sure a married man with young kids would agree to do this as a publicity stunt…how exactly do you explain THAT to your kids. And it's not like they need more publicity to sell twilight tickets. I actually think this is completely true.

  3. Sandy says:

    Ill start off by saying im not fans of of Kristen and/ or Rob and have never seen any of their movies but as I was looking at some headlines I noticed that it was/ is a publicity stunt right off the bat. These celebs apologizing through twitter or through whatever social media? Right. Thats how adults handle this sort of situation, huh? Bull. Taking advantage of younger fans of these celebs to make bank.

  4. You are blind says:

    Anyone who believes this was a publicity stunt is delusional.

  5. You are blind says:

    And anyone who actually wants to say that what she did was "all right" in any fashion is smacking the face of the kids of the director as well as the wife. The internet is forever, and to explain something like this down the line as an episode of some punkd social experiment would be hard to achieve. Let the girl have her apology and mistake and learn and grow from it. Dont cheapen it by acting like its not out there in the world, tangible and readily available. She admitted to it, maybe the rest of the public should as well.

  6. Lisa says:

    I'm pretty sure their statements were given when the magazine contacted them for comments regarding their photographic evidence and the fact they were going to make an article about it (with or without their statements). Many fans are also speculating that they were "forced" to release these statements (see: wife and/or Robert).
    Also, what kind of publicity stunt is one that has the potential to destroy your career?

  7. Anony says:

    College Candy is really stupid if they're going to argue that THIS was a publicity stunt. I've heard arguments for Rob & Kristen's entire relationship being a publicity stunt, and THAT makes more sense than the garbage in this article. A publicity stunt is supposed to HELP one's career, not damage or altogether ruin it. Durr. "Robsten" helps sell the Twilight films. What the hell does a "faked" cheating incident do to help one's career or reputation?

    And I highly doubt Kristen would hide her homosexuality this way. She certainly didn't feel weird about playing one on film- Joan Jett in The Runaways movie? Ring any bells?

    Honestly, with so many actresses claiming bisexuality, I doubt being a lesbian would hurt her career in Hollywood. Even so, it would hurt less than this cheating scandal likely will.

    Use your heads folks and stop rationalizing this…

  8. Rae says:

    I agree with anony. Cheating is only going to hurt their careers (Kristen and Rupert). If they were trying to have a publicity stunt to boost sales, robsten would be engaged or married. Supposedly the whole relationship is a sham-if it were why not wait until after breaking dawn 2 to have them break up?

    If Kristen was a lesbian, why hide it? There are plenty of homosexual actors that are successful.

    And yes, it is strange that she and Rupert were caught when she and Rob were so secretive, but where else could she go? An Kristen apologized publicly most likely because Rob won’t talk to her.

    Also, children are involved. I don’t believe that Hollywood is even that low to ruin a family. Ultimately this is terrible for the people hurt, and they deserve time to grieve privately without being accused of faking everything.

    I don't know, Liberty Ross seems to be doing okay out of this deal – no one had heard of her before and now the offers are "pouring in" http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/28/liberty-

    Publicity stunt. Period. Just wait and see…
