“Rob Risks It All For Kristen,” blares OK! magazine’s cover story about Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, adding “How his engagement to Kristen is putting Rob’s career and the future of Twilight in jeopardy.” (Engagement? Really?? Uh, no.)
Moving on: The tabloid claims that his reported romance with Stewart is progressing so quickly, “it’s not only his legions of female fans who might be disappointed to see Rob taken off the bachelor block by Kristen — there’s also the folks behind the Twilight films.” According to the weak weekly, “A real-life romance between the two would subvert New Moon’s entire story line, in which Bella [Stewart] falls for hunky werewolf Jacob Black, played by 17-year-old Taylor Lautner, and the studio brass want the Bella-Jacob spark to appear equally as plausible as the Bella-Edward [Pattinson] relationship.”
OK, OK! - one is a movie; the other is real life.
Not surprisingly, OK! has a “source” to support this claim of studio pressure. Says the so-called insider: “The producers took Rob and Kris aside and told them to keep their relationship under wraps for a few more months . . . [But] they’re crazy about each other, and they want to shout it from the rooftops.” (You would think this supposed “source” could come up with something less cliché than shouting from rooftops.) Anyway, the reason there are no rooftop rants, alleges the “insider,” is that Pattinson and Stewart are “part of this massive machine called Twilight and producers have this thing timed with scientific precision. They don’t want Rob and Kristen to tell the world about their relationship until the time is right.”
Well, the time is right for us to debunk this junk. Our production sources say no restrictions have been placed on Pattinson and Stewart, other than those needed to protect them from the paparazzi.
Still, the story gets even more ridiculous. That same source claims, “Rob’s whole world is Kristen. I’m surprised he even knows his lines because he’s so absorbed with her . . . He’s all about his woman.” Yeah, he’s really in danger of not learning his lines. Not OK!
“Regardless of whether he’s jeopardizing his career by moving toward marriage with Kristen, Rob is clearly ready and willing to take the risk,” writes OK!
Gossip Cop thinks the tabs sometimes come up with even more creative fantasies than the movies and stars they write about.
