Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s new battle
ARTICLE BY miami PUBLISHED Aug 1, 2012
In following after the messy split between Twilight stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, a new battle had recently engaged between the two, taking shape in who gets to keep a dog which had been adopted by the couple.
Adopted by the stars from a New Orleans-based shelter, Bear, a mixed-breed dog is now in the middle of an ongoing dispute between the two feuding celebrities, who each have their own reasons and say over who deserves to gain rightful custody of Bear.
Based on unverified insider reports, the couple had planned on adopting another dog before Rupert Sanders, Stewart’s “fling”, said what he had to say about his relationship with Stewart.
Both Stewart and Pattinson were adamant in finding a playmate for Bear, and were reported to have frequented shelters based in the Los Angeles area, as well as searched for potential prospects in www.petfinder.com.
Given the recent split, it appears that those plans are no longer going to come into fruition.
Both Stewart and Pattinson have become quite attached with Bear, and the custody of the dog is one which Pattinson isn’t going to back down from easily. Stewart, on the other hand, is more inclined to a joint custody settlement, and is also not willing to easily give Bear up given the fact that she did do her part in saving Bear from Parvo as a puppy.
Though reports reveal that both celebrities are no longer on speaking terms, the same unverified insider report notes that Pattinson, after moving out from the couple’s Los Angeles apartment, did tell Stewart that he had wanted Bear.
Trouble in paradise for the celebrity couple began after a photo of Stewart and Rupert Sanders (who directed Snow and the Huntsman) was published. Spending time together as couples, with Stuart and Pattinson with Sanders and his wife, actress Liberty Ross, the split between Stuart and Pattinson has not only affected the marriage of the two, but has also done a number between Sanders and his wife.
Stewart won’t have any problems in keeping her cat named Max, given that Pattinson hasn’t given any indication of him wanting Max by his side.
