The Twilight Star Breakup You Didn’t See Coming Actually Happened
All seemed well in the love department for the cast of Twilight. Kristen Stewart‘s been quite vocal about her on-again-off-again (but currently on-again) relationship with Alicia Cargile, Robert Pattinson‘s engaged to FKA Twigs, Nikki Reed married Ian Somerhalder… It’s like love is in the air! Sadly, it doesn’t appear that that’s the case for everyone.
Dakota Fanning & boyfriend Jamie Strachan called it quits, according to the October 2016 issue of Town & Country. The 22-year-old actress, who played feared female Volturi member Jane throughout The Twilight Saga, and 35-year-old model reportedly started dating back in May 2013, but, apparently, couldn’t make the romance last.
While it’s unclear as to the reason why the couple, that had a 13-year age gap, broke it off, Dakota still managed to talk about dating in her cover spread, saying, “The way I prefer to meet someone is through a friend… [They’re] most likely not a freak. I find dates, in general, horrific. We have to sit there and ask these questions and pretend to eat a meal, and it just feels so stiff.”
The Twilight cast is far from innocent. Just look at all the scandals the stars were caught in:
The Cheating Scandal Heard 'round the World
In 2012, much to the dismay of dedicated Twilight fans, Kristen Stewart was caught, on camera, getting cozy with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, while she was still dating Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson.
After the pictures were released, she issued a public statement, saying, "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."
The kicker: The director was married, too — to KStew's SWATH mother, Liberty Ross! Fortunately, she found love again and just got remarried on Valentine's Day 2016.
