The love story of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart – take two! Several sources have confirmed to People that the Twilight on-and-off-screen couple is back together at last. To recap, the two broke up back in July when Stewart, 22, admitted to having a short affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, who himself was a very married man. Soon after, Pattinson, 26, put their L.A. home up for sale and moved out. After much time separated, the two decided to meet up in L.A. around September 15 and have been practically inseparable since then. The newly reunited couple has yet to make their formal public debut on the red carpet, which is scheduled to happen while promoting The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 movie at the end of this month.
