Kristen Stewart's affair with Rupert Sanders was not a one-time fling like she claimed, according to the Snow White and the Huntsman director's brother-in-law.

That's just one of many twists and turns in the scandal that has rocked Hollywood: after a four-year relationship with her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson, 22-year-old Stewart was photographed hooking up with Sanders, 41 -- and quickly admitted their indiscretion.

In a heartfelt statement, Stewart said, “I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected."

Sanders — who has two child with model wife Liberty Ross — followed suit. “I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family,” he 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.”

Following in Pattinson's footsteps, the Snow White actress has packed up and moved out of the L.A. love-nest they shared. Not only are they not living together, but the Twilight pair are reportedly not in contact. Despite the current tension, Stewart and Pattinson may have to face each other 0n September 6, when they are expected to appear together at MTV’s Video Music Awards.

Celebuzz has the latest developments on the scandal that rocked the Twi-hard nation.

1. Pattinson was reportedly weeks away from popping the question. According to reports, Pattinson has purchased a $5 million L.A. home and was planning to propose to longtime love Stewart within weeks. “Friends of Robert have told us that this was the woman that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with, and he was actually very close to proposing when he heard about the affair,” said Dina Sansing of Us Weekly.

2. Sanders' brother-in-law claims it was more than a brief affair. Stewart called her fling with her Snow White and the Huntsman director a “momentary indiscretion," but Sanders' brother-in-law begs to differ. Leopold Ross — the brother of Liberty Ross — believes Sanders became involved with his leading lady while filming the fairytale film, according to the UK's PEOPLE. "It was from the last half of filming and all through post-production, clear into last week," Ross said. "[Liberty] made some sacrifices for something she thought was worth it -- now she knows, right? ... It might actually make things better in the long run. She wasn’t that happy for a while. But our family is close. She’ll be all right.”

3. Pattinson has "nobody to talk to" as his relationship unravels. As he struggles to cope with his reeling romance, the Cosmopolis actor is reportedly leaning on strangers for support, according to The Sun. “Robert has resorted to asking strangers out to keep him company," said a source. "He went out for drinks with a woman staying in his hotel and he told her it was 'ridiculous' he had nobody to talk to."

4. Details emerge about the scandalous photos. As a photographer followed Stewart's Mini Cooper to the Pacific View Trail, the actress and her older male companion started to make out in the car, according to the L.A. Times. That's when the photographer called his agency, FameFlyNet, for backup. But it wasn't until all the snaps were uploaded back at the office that the snappers realized the mystery man smooching Stewart was, in fact, Sanders. "That was when we realized, 'Oh, my God, she's not just cheating on Rob — this guy is married and has kids,'" recalled Scott Cosman, the owner of FameFlyNet. "It was pretty scandalous, and it had so many different angles to it."

5. After slamming Stewart last week for her affair, Brandi Glanville takes aim at Sanders. After catching wind of the Stewart-Sanders controversial affair, the Real Housewife of Beverly Hills ranted on Twitter about the Twilight star. "I'm not happy with this K stew Bs," she wrote. "2 close to home. Same story, friends with the wife and kids & f*** the husband when we think no one is looking." The following day, Glanville continued: "Home-wreckers come in pairs #ittakes2." She then wrote — but then later deleted — "'F**k people I have always said it takes two and a man can’t be stolen he has to want to leave."

6. How will Stewart's cheating affect her career? "This could be her Angelina moment," pop culture expert Jo Piazza tells Celebuzz. For some celebrities, infidelity scandals spoil their career. For others, it only boosts their stardom. For Stewart, it could mean a moment of re-invention. “This could be her Angelina moment,” Piazza told Celebuzz. “Angelina was always edgy, but after she stole Brad she was going to be the bad girl forever more. We already have started to see Kristen go toward darker role. This could be Kristen’s rebranding of herself as that edgier actress, as that bad girl.”

7. After her video went viral, Twilight superfan Emma Clark tells Celebuzz she's still rooting for Robsten. Twihard Emma Clark emerged a star from the Stewart cheating scandal last week, when the YouTube video she posted pledging her undying support for Pattinson went viral. "I just want to tell them to keep going, to keep trying,” Clark told Celebuzz. “They have all their fans behind them that support and love them.”

    Yes! Kristen is free of both of these douchebags, Robert and Rupert. They both took advantage of her immaturity and kind heart. They are both older than her and used her and ditched her. Now don’t worry, because Robert is his own worst enemy. He portrays himself as alittle innocent lamb around his parents, London friends and in interviews. Whereas, in reality he is the polar opposite. He is a sexual addict, hard partier and cocaine addict. He is a bottom feeder, that’s why he picks up skanks and one night stands. He thinks that he is being clever and vengeful with Kristen, but he will be the loser in no time. Just wait and see. He lost the best cover/beard that he will ever have. Kristen gave and gave and never received any quality time or affection from this creep. No wonder she strayed. She will survive, bounce back and strive. I only see happiness for Kristen after the BD2 promos. She just has to make it through that mes, and the producers will probably drop her from it all together anyway because of the death threats from Robsessed hags. She lost a lousy unloving boyfriend but will someday meet a good man who truly loves and adores her. Rob will only destroy himself.

    I'm not a superfan, but I totally agree. This poor guy must be devastated. I've always thought he was a genuine, good person.

  • I'm just saying.
    I'm just saying.

    How convenient that of all the people to have seen in the world, you just happened to see Rob who has been absent from any press for a week. Interesting.........and rather unbelievable. I love how people who can't support their claims always say "I would NEVER take a picture". Kind of a Sassquatch moment isn't it? Try again.

  • here it is..
    here it is..

    and this comes from a fan of Kristen too. I’m still a fan but I will never quite look at her in the same way. I don’t it’s right that Rob’s cheating has never been called into question, but I will never entirely forgive Kristen for sleeping with a married father of 2 either. There are some things that there is just no excuse for…EVER.

  • here it is..
    here it is..

    Kristen cheated with a married man who had children. Even if they had an open relationship and even if Rob had been seeing other women in the past while he was with Kristen that doesn’t somehow excuse what she did. She had no excuse hooking up with a married guy like EVER under any circumstances…even if her boyfriend was cheating too. She had ample opportunity to end it with Rob and that’s what she should’ve done…despite pressure from the fanbase, the studio, their teams, whatever. Rob should’ve ended it too with her instead of cheating or whatever they had going with their ‘open’ thing. The point I’m trying to make is that even if Rob slept with 100 or more other women over the last 3 1/2 years, that STILL is not as bad a sleeping with her married director who had children. That is the ultimate low and she will never be entirely forgiven for it either.

    @AlyHazlewood Just seen Robert Pattinson on Brick Lane. Amusingly he was being ignored by all the hipsters. 29 Jul @AlyHazlewood To all the people asking me for a photo of Robert Pattinson, I don’t make a habit of taking pictures of celebrities in the street, sorry. 3h @AlyHazlewood Jeez, can’t believe the crazy interest in Robert Pattinson. He had a bit of a beard, was with a couple of friends & looked perfectly cheery 1hr @AlyHazlewood And that’s all I have to say about it. He probably looked cheerful because he was being left alone to enjoy a wander down Brick Lane. 1h

    Jenn Hoffman ‏@JennHoffmanFACT: The real reason I was banned from Chateau Marmont is b/c I tweeted about Robert Pattinson being there & getting cozy w another woman. 26 Jul – This happened back in January 2012. Strange. Wasn’t she ‘with’ Kristen then and they were living together? But he was out with another women getting cozy at the Chateau Marmont even back then? Now only Kristen is being blamed for cheating and breaking them up? Looks like Rob dodged a bullet back then…and many times before. Funny how these things work out, isn’t it?

    Kristen is not even close to Jolie's acting talent. Bitch please, she's nothing to Jolie.

    This is crazy. Rob has friends to speak with. I hope this will not be an "Angelina" moment for Kristen, I don' t think it can be, as she is successful because of her fans, and right now millions are disgusted with her. I don't think these fans will be replaced by other, older, "edgier" women. If Rob was going to propose, think about how he feels, just think about it. Kristen doesn't deservce any concern, right now. Rupert Sanders is an a***hole.

    Let's be fair here. Older, more experienced women have been taken advantage of by film directors on set just as Kristen was taken advantage of. This director is a predator who set his sights on the most vulnerable member of the cast — while HIS WIFE WAS WORKING ON THE SAME MOVIE. Sure, she made a mistake, but she's ONLY 22. I'm sure she loves Robert Pattinson, but when a mentor-type sets out to seduce you, it's hard to resist. I know from experience. Now she probably feels like a complete fool, and everyone's blaming her. NOBODY'S BLAMING THE PREDATOR. Get real, folks. And give Kristen Stewart a break.
