Robert Pattinson stayed at Reese Witherspoon's Ojai estate following scandal, report says
Robert Pattinson reportedly stayed at the home of his "Water for Elephants" co-star Reese Witherspoon, following Kristen Stewart's admission of cheating.
A source told E! Online that the 26-year-old "Twilight Saga" actor turned to Witherspoon for support following the scandal and stayed at her Ojai, California estate last week.
The source claims that the actor is "gone now" from the picturesque home, which was recently featured in a spread in Elle Decor magazine. The Ojai home was also the site of Witherspoon's March 2011 wedding to talent agent Jim Toth.
Pattinson and Witherspoon's reps had no immediate comment on the reports, which People magazine also confirmed.
While promoting their 2011 film "Water for Elephants," Witherspoon said that Pattinson was "extraordinarily attractive" and a "great guy from a great family."
On July 25, Kristen Stewart admitted to a "momentary indiscretion" with "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders. The 22-year-old actress released an apology to the media, in which she apologized profusely to Pattinson.
"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.
Following the cheating scandal, People magazine reported that Pattinson had left the Los Angeles home that he shared with his "Twilight" co-star and longtime girlfriend. It was reported that Stewart also moved out of the home.
Sanders, 41, is married to model Liberty Ross, 33, who portrayed Stewart's mother, Queen Eleanor in "Snow White and the Huntsman." The couple has two young children. Sanders is English and started out directing commercials. "Snow White and the Huntsman" is his first feature film.
Us Weekly claimed to have photos of Stewart and Sanders together and the story is the cover of the magazine's latest issue. The photos were taken in Los Angeles on July 17.
A source told People magazine that Stewart and Sanders were not having an on-going affair, "It was just a fleeting moment that shouldn't have happened. She never meant to hurt anyone. She's a good person who just made a bad choice."
Both Stewart and Pattinson recently appeared together at Comic-Con in San Diego in mid-July for a "Twilight Saga" event. The couple have been seen getting cozy at red carpet premieres and have been rumored to be dating since the first film in the series.
