Relationship is under siege after reports of Kristen's fling. Read More »

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson's years-long relationship has been rocked by reports that the actress hooked up with her much-older, married Snow White helmer, Rupert Sanders.

The actress, 22, has now issued an official statement about the fling.

"I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized 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," Stewart said in a statement to People.

After news of the tryst spread like wildfire on the web, Us Weekly printed incriminating photos of Stewart, 22, and Sanders, 41, cozying up in a car in what looks to be a romantic moment.

“Kristen is absolutely devastated,” a source told Us. “It was a mistake and a complete lapse in judgment.”

According to Us Weekly, which splashed its cover with the blazing headline "Kristen Cheats on Rob!", it was a photographer who caught Stewart in Sander’s car on July 17.

“Kristen was sitting with her back against the driver’s-side window and this guy was kissing her entire body,” the unnamed paparazzo said.

After the news broke on Wednesday, Sanders also issued an apology.

“I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family,” Sanders told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. “My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.”

The 41-year-old British director is married to actress-model Liberty Ross, with whom he has two young children, Skyla, 7, and Sonny 5. The couple have been together since Liberty was 18 but married recently.

Come ON now!!!!

  • whydoibother

    He goes first to shield her from the paps you idiot. Ladies first is a whole other deal when you're sending your date out into a hoard of paparazzi. Nice one though. You tried.

    People are all too quick to judge when if you read all the stuff you will find out its a load of bullshit the papers magazines will make any crap up to get a story and be paid for it do if you believe everything you read see and hear then you are all stupid now stop judging unless there is evidence

    YOU'RE SO STUPID JENNA! she DID NOT cheat!! US Weekly made up this junk to sell their magazines! dont believe me? ok, heres why you should: * the photo is photoshopped, ive seen the ORGINAL photos and its of Rupert and his wife NOT Kristen! *literally a few hours after the story dropped, these apparent apology statements were released at the EXACT SAME TIME! more like the magazine made up them up to try and 'prove' that they were the ones they founded the story and they were right. if Kristen OFFICALLY goes on tv or radio and admits herself itstrue thats when i'll believe it, but as i can see its pretty effing fake.

    I would love to see nothing more then for Robert to move on, get happily married someday, have children, the works... and once Liberty copes she focuses on raising her children alone after getting divorced, all the while Kristen becomes the next Lindsey Lohan (not much of a stretch!) and Rupert feels like an idiot everyday for the rest of his life. I'm not a Twilight fan or a fan of any of these people, just disgusted with insensitive, dishonest sluts of both genders.

  • Jorgie

    I have to agree with you. We all were young and stupid. His mature and preying on young girls. Sure it is not the first time he cheated on his wife. He even looks dirty. Nevertheless, people have to be responsible for their own actions. I feel bad for Rob, wife and kids. It is a shame that something this private is so public. I'm not going to judge anybody. Let it be, and there is a lesson here or everyone. Tomorow is just that. Paps will never let them alone now. Shame

  • dumas1000

    While the affair itself may be true, and I don't care, because I am an adult, not some fricken twi-hard tweener, I do not trust that these statements published from People are legit.

  • Jenna

    Yes cheat your bf have sex with a married man and then apologize for it cuz actually your fans are dumb enough to forgive you.... and I'm not even being sarcastic or anything... just remember she would mantain this relationship with this married man if paparazzi didn't caught her. Poor Rob

  • fishyone

    Its still a private matter. People on here need to get a life.

  • Lara


  • trish22

    Sorry she got caught, absolutely.

  • Jody

    So thats why she's apologizing? The radio station confirmed that Rupert's wife didnt call them. An in denial robsten fan made it up. Oops ur an in denial robsten fan

    people here are acting like they personally know these people. u know absolutely NOTHING about them except what they want you to see. stop defending people you dont even know as if they were your relatives. they're human like the rest of us and make choices that sometimes are not the best, LIKE THE REST OF US!!

    IDK I don't think Kristen would do that and even if she did the last thing she'd do is handle it PUBLICLY.

  • pearlysmed

    is she sorry for cheating or sorry she got caught?

    It's not like Kristen Stewart would be the first actress to have afling with the director of the movie she was doing and I doubt that she will be the last.

    If this is true and they are dating ( I know some peple have their doubts) and he forgives her for what she called a lapse in judgement then that is between the two of them and not really any of the rest of the world's business. Even if they ae celebritiesthey are still just people and this kind of thg DOES happen, especially when you are only 22 years old.

  • Heartbroken

    I was holding out hope that this wasn't true, but it saddens be to finally admit that it is. There is no way for Kristen or her management team to ignore allegations of an affair with a married man. A man your directed her in a recent project. This story has legs and has blown up everywhere. The cover photo on US Weekly did look like it could be Photoshopped. However, the inside magazine photos tell the story and that is Kristen. This statement is being run everywhere and it breaks my heart.

    would never said anything about her love life to a magazine. If she did say that we need proof but i don't think she said anything.

  • Tamara McKoy

    So no true that she said that because Kristen

  • Al

    She is only 22. People at 22 are dumb. He was an older married man, shame on him for taking advance of a girl who could be his daughter.

    sigh... so shocked....everybody makes mistakes just have to learn from it.... but seriously celebrities really think they can get away with cheating and not expect to get caught?...

  • Lauren Shockley

    Seriously? Okay first of all, we all know that Kristen is a private person, she would never issue a statement about her relationship let alone she denied having. What makes you guys think she would be so public like that? That's not Kristen at all. People magazine makes no sense. So stupid. Second of all, the picture was a fake. It was clearly photoshopped. I don't believe any story that comes out of their damn mouths.

  • Joana

    What i meant was that, they never admitted to be each others partners, they were always very coy about it, and now she is admitting to be his girlfriend. Yes they have hinted to be together, but never publicly admitted it, you'd never see them holding hands and stuff.

  • Aya

    There are two sides to every story, sometimes more, but this whole thing is still sounding fishy to me and I'm not even a Robsten/RobKris stan. Kristen doesn't talk about her personal life and I think now more than ever, if any of this is true, she would do her best to keep a concerted distance between herself and the media so all of these sources and supposed reports of a statement, etc, especially to the people who blew the door on the supposed affair, are very uncharacteristic of the kind of person she's shown herself to be.

    Get over it!!!!! Rupert Sanders´s wife explained she was the one kissing him not Kristen, clearly People Magazine need to sell such a lame story

  • Aya

    Actually, she's called him her boyfriend before. HE's never referred to her as his girlfriend publicly though, to my knowledge anyway.

  • Joana

    i'm shocked. i'm shocked that she even did this to him, i'm sure he doesn't deserve all this suffering :( .. and it took her to cheat on him, for her to publicly admit to being Rob's girlfriend and admit that she loves him... if i was in his shoes, not sure if i'd forgive her.

  • jannie

    Nope I still don't believe any of it... And Kristen would never make a statement to People Magazine about her love life. Everyone who respects her and knows just a little bit about what she's about knows this too!

  • adfm

    im so sad.......... hope they get over this.... so sad
