Robert Pattinson wants to meet Liberty Ross, the wife of the man who had an affair with girlfriend Kristen Stewart, in order to “find answers”, it has been reported.British actor Robert Pattinson is reported to be seeking a meeting with Liberty Ross, the wife of director Rupert Sanders, in order to find “peace of mind” following revelations of the fling.
Stewart, who has issued a public apology after photographs of an intimate moment with Sanders were published, has claimed the affair was just a “momentary indiscretion”.
It has now been claimed Pattinson is seeking reassurance from Ross that the relationship did not go any deeper.
An unnamed source told the Daily Mirror: “He needs to know for his peace of mind if theirs was just a fleeting moment.
“He hopes Liberty can help him find the answers he so desperately craves.”
The insider speculated that a meeting with Ross, who has been married to 41-year-old Sanders for a decade, “would lend some clarity to the situation”.
Pattinson, 26, is said to be “heartbroken and angry” at the revelations about Stewart’s relationship with Rupert Sanders, the father-of-two who directed her in Snow White and the Huntsman.
Earlier this week, it emerged he had been planning to propose to Stewart, 22, after being in a relationship for three years.
Dina Sansing of US Weekly, the magazine which broke the story of the affair, said: “Friends of Robert have told us that this was the woman that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with and he was actually very close to proposing when he heard about the affair.”
The pair have both left the home they shared in Los Angeles, with removal vans spotted leaving the grounds on Saturday.
Sources told People magazine that Pattinson has severed communication with Stewart, 22.
The pair are scheduled to appear on stage together at MTV’s Video Music Awards on September 6, where they are due to co-present.
Their final film together, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 is due out on November 16.
Paparazzi shots of Stewart and Sanders together appeared last week. They were photographed in public displays of affection in a parked car and at a lookout spot with a view over Hollywood.
Shortly afterwards, Stewart issued an emotional public statement pleading for forgiveness.
“I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected,” she said.
“This momentary indiscretion has jeopardised 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.”
