At first they didn’t recognize the man making out with the Hollywood starlet, but when they got back to the office that’s when all hell broke loose…
When a paparazzo initially set out to follow Kristen Stewart he had no idea what waited for him. All he knew was that she had gone and collected a man in her Mini Cooper and by now were acting conspicuously as they made concerted efforts not to be seen. Knowing he was onto something the paparazzo followed the pair when suddenly they started kissing. It was then that he saw payola and called his agency. FameFlynet Pictures for reinforcement as he knew he had a live one.
It wasn’t until after they returned to the agency to closely look at the photos did they realize that the man she had been kissing was ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ director Rupert Sanders.
“Oh, my God, she’s not just cheating on Rob — this guy is married and has kids,” Scott Cosman, the owner of FameFlyNet, thought upon seeing the photos. “It was pretty scandalous, and it had so many different angles to it.”
According to hollywoodlife, Melanie Bromley, a former West Coast bureau chief for Us Weekly, estimated the photos to be worth $250,000 — an amount the magazine likely spent on the exclusive images!
Dina Sansing, Us Weekly’s entertainment director, added, “There was no question when we saw those pictures that this was going to be one of the biggest stories of the year — if not the biggest. And I’m not sure the ‘Twilight’ fans would have believed the news without the undeniable photographic evidence.”
According to Melanie, US Weekly likely informed Kristen’s and Rupert’s publicists about the photos and impending story on July 23, before it was leaked online the next day.
“Usually, you go to the reps and they’ll say, ‘If you don’t run those pictures, I’ll give you this scoop instead,’” said Melanie. “But in this case, there was nothing the reps could barter.”
It might in the end might be the pictures that damned Kristen Stewart as this was now undeniable evidence something was going on. To date she may have forever lost her boyfriend of 3 years, Robert Pattinson when he bailed out of their relationship and quite possibly her career as fans now begin to question the legitimacy of their demi god Kristen Stewart.
