Fans of Breaking Dawn actress Kristen Stewart are heartbroken to hear about her affair with Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders. On Tuesday night, news broke that US Weekly was about to release photos of Stewart and Sanders. Later that night, the rumors turned out to be true with candid photos being released of Stewart and Sanders kissing in her car and shots of them cuddling and holding each other in Los Angeles.

Stewart issued a statement about the affair and finally admitted to dating her co-star of four years, Robert Pattinson. Stewart stated, "I am 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."

Stewart's statement was blunt and straight to the point. She didn't deny or keep quiet, which is usual for the star when approached with celebrity gossip. Sanders, married and father of two young girls released a statement to PEOPLE following Stewart's public apology, "I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family." Sanders commented. It is not known how long Stewart and Sanders have been seeing each other on the side.

Fans have reacted harshly to the news that their favorite couple, Twilight fans are labeling Stewart as a trampire and some fans are wanting to believe that the fifty plus photos are all photoshopped.

One fan posted about how the affair has affected her on Tumblr, kristenstewart-robertpattinson stated, "Why would she (Kristen) cheat/ There must be something behind it. maybe Rob and Kristen were having big fights...Cause the way she looked at the camera in that picture. Oh God." In one of the photos the paparazzi snapped, Stewart is seen looking out of the window of her car and what looks like smiles at the camera. The Twilight fan went on to say, "But I will still continue to support BOTH of them because I feel like I grew up with their relationship and its just crazy that this is happening."

Details about Stewart and Sanders relationship have been breaking all day, Sanders dad even commented saying that he doesn't think the tryst didn't go very far and the gossip has been blown out of porportion. Photos have surfaced of a white van leaving a house that is supposedly Pattinson and his belongings. Websites are reporting that Pattinson has moved out of the home he shares with Stewart.
