Hollywood script supervisor Jules Stewart was devastated when her daughter was caught cheating on the handsome British star with married movie director Rupert Sanders – because she thinks of Robert, 26, as a son.
“Jules is the glue that’s keeping Kristen and Rob together,” a source close to the couple told RadarOnline.com “It ripped her heart in two when she saw those pictures of Kristen in a compromising situation with Rupert – and she couldn’t believe what her daughter had done.
“As far as Jules was concerned, Kristen’s relationship with Robert was a match made in heaven and she adored him like he was her own son. At first, she struggled to understand why Kristen wanted to cheat on him.
“But Kristen’s young and Jules knows mistakes will happen – so she supported her daughter’s efforts to win Robert back.
“She has been speaking with Robert, re-iterating Kristen’s pleas for another chance and is trying to help build up trust between the pair. It is early days – but if this reconciliation can bring Robert and Kristen back together, they’ll have Jules to thank,” the source revealed.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Robert and Kristen are in a “weird relationship” that could go either way, as the couple still has some “serious trust issues.”
“The love story between Robert and Kristen is still a bit of a conundrum, it’s a weird relationship” a source revealed. “Despite claims that all is rosy – he’s still not completely convinced that giving their relationship another chance is the right thing to do.
“For one, his family and friends are totally against the idea – and although he’s his own man and makes his own decisions there are times when he thinks they are right.
“And there are moments when he continually asks her questions about the affair – so it’s all still very tense — they have some really serious trust issues. But they were brought together again by a great friendship so there could be hope. Robert thought Kristen was the girl he was going to marry.
“However, that’s all on hold for the moment until they try and work things out. This could go either way.” the source concluded.
