The pair, who split last month following Kristen’s affair with Rupert Sanders, are both set to present awards at the MTV Video Awards in LA next month. Awkward, much?
An MTV source told The Mirror: “This event could be a real embarrassment. The idea was for them to jointly present awards but that is looking unlikely now. If they go up on stage at the same time fans will believe they are united again. If Kristen goes up alone the crowd reaction will be astonishing. Fans have bought into the romance on and off screen so she could be in for a horrible night.”
Robert and Kristen have previously won the Best Kiss award for their steamy smooches in the Twilight films, and played up to the audience by having a sneaky rendezvous when they collected their gong on stage.
Kristen has been lying low since the news of her affair broke, while Robert returned to the red carpet this week for the premiere of Cosmopolis, an interview with Jon Stewart, an interview with Showbiz Tonight, and an appearance at the New York Stock Exchange – looking mouth-watering hot at every event. Will Kristen pull out? We’ll keep you posted! RM
