Kristen Stewart has reportedly "reached out" to Rupert Sanders.
The actress and film director Rupert hit the headlines last year when news of their affair went public. Rupert's wife Liberty Ross has since filed for divorce and while Kristen and Robert Pattinson seemed to be back on track for a while, they have also now called time on their romance.
The Twilight stars' relationship ended last month and the actress is reportedly struggling to cope - especially now Robert has jetted to Australia to work on his new movie The Rover.
"Kristen was feeling low - the lowest she's ever felt - when Rob flew to Australia. She doesn't have a huge circle of friends. Rob was the closest person to her. So, when he left, she reached out to Rupert to see if he was OK and suggested meeting for a coffee," an insider told Heat magazine.
"It seemed like Kristen was just blindly trying to do something to ease her pain. When Rob found out she'd contacted Rupert through a mutual friend, he was upset that Kristen would even go there. He wasn't jealous, he was just incredulous. It seems like Kristen has no chance with him now."
Rupert was also said to be amazed by Kristen's actions, and did not meet up with her.
It's not thought that Kristen, 22, was looking to reignite her romance with 42-year-old Rupert. Instead, she is believed to have been looking for someone to discuss her ongoing problems with.
"Kristen feels helpless without Rob. The fact he has upped and left her has devastated her. She had thought she might be able to go to Australia for visits and keep their relationship going, but Rob found it difficult to trust her again and knew long distance would be too difficult. Things had become irreparable. Kristen knew things were over between Rupert and Liberty too and it seemed like she just wanted to talk to someone who was going through the same thing as her," the source added.© Cover Media
