It’s what friends are for!
The Twilight Saga beauty has been pouring her heart out to her 21-year-old co-star about her absent man – who is currently filming The Rover in Australia.
“Kristen has been spending a lot of time with Taylor of late because she’s been using him as a sounding board for her relationship with Robert,” a source exclusively tells Radar.
“She thinks that he may have some insight in how she should proceed with Robert – and where their relationship is going."
Kristen, 22, isn’t sure if Robert’s heart is in their relationship, and she’s been asking Taylor what she should do next.
“Robert and Taylor are also tight, so she’s been fishing a little to find out if they have been talking about anything," the source continued.
“But Taylor has just told Kristen that she has to give Robert time to heal still. It’s not even been a year since the now infamous cheating scandal, so he can’t be expected to forgive and forget so quickly.
“He also told her that Robert is busy working and trying to stay together long-distance is as tough as it gets. She needs to just be patient until he comes back."
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Robert doesn’t want Kristen to visit him in Australia anytime soon.
“Rob doesn’t want her to visit,” a friend of the troubled couple told In Touch. “He felt like they needed space. He wants a break.”
But while she’s being starved of male attention, Kristen was recently seen flirting up a storm with hunky teen Patrick Schwarzenegger.
Stewart was reportedly spotted making moves on the 19-year-old at Taylor’s birthday party in L.A. on February 9.
“She was creeping on Patrick big time,” a source told Star.
“People were saying they should get a room because the energy between them was so hot.”
