8 Twilight Cast Scandals That Broke the Hearts of Twihards Everywhere
Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder‘s whirlwind romance was pretty much all anyone could talk about last year. At the beginning of 2015, they announced that they were engaged — the same month her divorce from American Idol alum Paul McDonald was finalized. That means that they started dating when she was still a married woman. Whoa. And, three months later, quicker than you could say Nina Dobrev, they got married.
But, considering the Twilight alum and her then-husband were estranged when she and the Vampire Diaries hunk first hooked up, we guess there’s not really a scandal there; the McDonalds were estranged, never to get back together again, so there may not have been much harm done. In these other instances, however, Twilight stars either caused or fell victim to scandals that weren’t only heartbreaking to them, but to Twihards everywhere:
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.
