Truth or Tabloid?: RPattz and Kristen Stewart “Back On”

By: Celebuzz / March 19, 2009

Whoa, did your head take a quick spin as you passed the news-stand? Life & Style‘s cover features the sexy term “Back On” and “Twilight‘s Hot Hookups.” A sure eye-catcher, especially under a photo of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson (arms around each other).

OMG!

Well hold on, the story is a giant tease.

THE CLAIM: After a breathy cover, the story totally backs off the “Hot Hookup” claim. In fact the “Back On” and “Kristen and Rob reunite” cover language apparently only refers to the fact that shooting has begun in Vancouver for the Twilight sequel. 

The closest they come to a Pattinson/Stewart relationship claim is a line “it also seems like more than mere friendship.” Then there is discussion of a blushing Kristen, talking about Robert’s kiss in Tokyo, and the “gigglefest” on the newly released Twilight DVD behind-the-scenes footage. 

Their relationship is also referred to as “flirty.”

Not much meat on them bones.

BEST BIT: As previously reported, the duo apparently performed a duet of Elton John‘s “Your Song” at a late-night karaoke session in Tokyo. (That song has the lyrics “I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words. How wonderful life is while you’re in the world.”)

ANYTHING ELSE?: There is a claim that “Rob and Nikki are still flirting too.” Here an insider tells the mag: “Rob and Nikki got close on the set of Twilight.” Indeed, Nikki is pictured sitting “close” to Rob with a microphone in her hand.

SO WHERE’S THE HOT HOOK-UPS?: In the movie apparently.
