Remember that time Donald Trump decided to give Robert Pattinson some unsolicited advice on Twitter about dumping Kristen Stewart, well it is coming back to bite him. Some of the things Mr. Trump do are baffling, and there are no reasonable or scientific explanations behind them. In 2012, fans of The “Twilight Saga” and the former power couple Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, known as “Robsten,” were devastated upon learning that they had split. Pattinson and Stewart ended their high-profile romance after she was caught having an affair with “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders.
Stewart was spotted by paparazzi sharing a very romantic moment with Sanders, who was very married at the time. The pictures made headlines, and after weighing the pros and cons, the British heartthrob dumped the actress.
As stated above, many supporters of Bella and Edward were crying and in distress over the breakup. It appears that the New York billionaire was one of those who was not pleased with the split.
Trump, who was the host of the “Celebrity Apprentice” that year, went on a Twitter rant where he told Pattinson to stay away from his former girlfriend. The 70-year-old said that Pattinson could do better. He wrote: “Robert Pattinson should not take back. She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again–just watch. He can do much better!”
Never afraid to praise himself, Trump said one day Pattinson would thank him for his help. He tweeted: “Everyone knows I am right that Robert Pattinson should dump Kristen Stewart. In a couple of years, he will thank me. Be smart, Robert.” Mr. Trump, who was also caught cheating on his first wife, Ivana, added: “Lots of response to my Pattinson/reunion. She will cheat again–100 certain–am I ever wrong?”
The mogul just could not stop and went on to reveal: “Robert Pattinson is putting on a good face for the release of Twilight. He took my advice on…I hope!” Trump shared: “After Friday’s Twilight release, I hope Robert Pattinson will not be seen in public with–she will cheat on him again!”
Trump also took the opportunity to invite Pattinson to the Miss Universe pageant so he could meet other women: “If you saw the Miss Universe girls you would reconsider.”
In an interview Stewart did at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah; she slammed Trump by saying he was obsessed. She explained: “He was mad at me a couple years ago, really obsessed with me a couple years ago, which is f**ing crazy…I can’t even understand it. I literally cannot even understand it. It’s such far-out concept that I don’t want to believe that actually is happening. It’s insane.”
The talented actress added: “At that point, he was just, like, a reality star. I had no reference. It wasn’t like really a thing. But in retrospect, somebody reminded me of that and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, you’re right!”
Pattinson did move on from Stewart and got engaged to British singer Tahliah Debrett Barnett, also known as FKA Twigs.
