Stewart, 22, has packed up her things from the couple’s Los Feliz, Calif. love-nest and is currently living away from Pattinson, PEOPLE reports.
After photos of Stewart and Sanders canoodling surfaced in an issue of Us Weekly, Pattinson has severed all contact with his Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 costar. The British actor is reportedly “heartbroken and humiliated” by Stewart’s tryst with Sanders, a married man who’s 19 years her senior.
Though the word’s still out if the couple will reconcile, Stewart and Pattinson won’t be able to avoid each other much longer.
Both actors are scheduled to appear as co-presenters MTV’s Video Music Awards on Sept. 9, and will continue to promotion the final Twilight film — due out Nov. 16 — this fall.
On Wednesday, Stewart publicly issued an apology to her boyfriend.
“I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected,” the statement read. “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.”
Likewise, Sanders — who’s currently married with two children — apologized for the affair.
“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.”
As Celebuzz previously reported, Stewart also plans to write a private letter to Sanders’ wife, actress Liberty Ross, to apologize for her actions.
