After a year-long effort, the tabloid press has finally managed to once again catch Kristen Stewart with Rupert Sanders. And they have the photographic evidence to prove it. You know what they say, the camera never lies. Here is their evidence.
Yeah right, What a farce. July 17th, 2012 was also a farce, and today is a perfect day to take out the trash. Which is exactly what we are going to do. During this series I have examined the provable evidence in the so-called Kristen Stewart cheating scandal and described eleven different scenarios that have put forward to try to explain what happened. Today we will send several of them packing. A review of The Grand Punk series would probably be helpful to new readers of this series, but in particular, a review of Part 10 (http://wp.me/p2JqVX-8O) Part 11 ( http://wp.me/p2JqVX-dk) and Part 12 (http://wp.me/p2JqVX-fp) would be most helpful.
Back in The Grand Punk Part 6, I introduced the concept of what provable evidence means.
In every investigation it’s good to take a pause, stand back, take a look at the provable facts, and examine the scenarios that potentially explain an episode. And in the process distinguish between facts as opposed to background noise, rumors, and unsubstantiated gossip based on unnamed sources. Engaging in that process can weed out unlikely scenarios and focus attention on the path forward. Now is a good time to do this with the Kristen Stewart “cheating scandal.
In doing so, particular care must be exercised when assessing the believability of unidentified and unnamed sources. Such sources, or reports of what they say, can be falsified or exaggerated with impunity and are immune from cross examination. That is the case whether such sources are claimed by the National Enquirer, Us Magazine, Gossip Cop, People Magazine, or the New York Times. But make no mistake, only the last entity has journalistic standards that require multiple sources and confirmation of the details provided by sources before a story runs. The rest are just part of celebrity gossip machine that is in the business of making money off of gossip.
That being the case, for the purposes of this inquiry, unnamed or unidentified sources of information shall not be considered as providing provable facts unless the information provided is substantiated by multiple, independent, non-conflicting sources, or photographs or video, and the information provided is such that a reasonably prudent person would rely on the truth of the information in making an important decision in their own life, in essence the reasonable person standard from tort law.
So lets take a look at the essential provable facts from this story.
Fifteen Facts in the Kristen Stewart Cheating Scandal
1. To most reasonable minds, by the end of 2011 Rob and Kristen were involved in a long-term, highly private, stable relationship for a matter of years.
It’s hard to remember but, prior to the so-called events of July of 2012, the debate over whether Rob and Kristen were a couple was pretty much over. Most of the diehard Nonstens had much thrown in the towel and even shut down their websites. We were well past the hand holding on the Paris tarmac, the Montreal kiss, years of cross continental birthday trips and reciprocal set visits, holidays on the Isle of Wight, shared clothes, knowing looks, and “My boyfriend” is English. And only about a little more than a month past the Cannes Film Festival.
The almost uniform reaction to the so-called scandal underscores this fact. People did not say “Oh my god, Kristen had a fling with Rupert, I guess she was never in a relationship with Rob.” No, the reaction was “Oh my god, how could she cheat on him”, which necessarily presumed that they were in a relationship to begin with.
That is not to say however, that there weren’t some who doubted the scandal’s authenticity almost from the very beginning, such as yours truly and Crushable’s Jeni Maier, although for different reasons. Those doubts accelerated for many with the somewhat flawed and misleading release of the Youtube video “The Camera Never Lies”. But the authenticity of the scandal is a different question from the authenticity of their relationship.
It wasn’t until people began to grasp for straws to explain why Rob would forgive Kristen after a very public, monumental humiliation of him and serious doubts began to be raised about the photographs that all of the “PR” theories sprung back to life. That their reconciliation must have been merely feigned to sell theater tickets or that they were contractually bound to fake a romance from the start. To see the fallacy of that last argument, see Busting Urban Legends About the So-Called Kristen Stewart Cheating Scandal: The PR Relationship Contract Clause Myth at http://wp.me/p2JqVX-Ep.
But like all things in this new digitized 24/7 electronic tabloid era, re-writing history was just a few key strokes away and a hot bed of anti-Kristen sentiment based on long standing Robert Pattenson mania as the world’s sexiest man and every girl’s dream come true, only poured gasoline on to the fire. Setting the stage for a public flogging and conflagration never before seen in terms of its intensity, length, and hysteria. Almost instantly, Kristen became a modern day pariah, the most hated woman in Hollywood.
2. Rob and Kristen’s mutual hatred and disgust for the paparazzi and the celebrity gossip machine has been a well established fact for years.
For a number of years, Kristen regularly flipped the paparazzi off, sometimes with two hands, and on at least one occasion in Paris in early 2012, taunted one who was abusing her to “freeze to death.”
Equally impressive were her verbal denouncements of both the paparazzi and the celebrity gossip rags:
I don’t care about the voracious, starving shit eaters who want to turn truth into shit.
What you don’t see are the cameras shoved in my face and the bizarre intrusive questions being asked, or the people falling over themselves, screaming and taunting to get a reaction. The photos are so… I feel like I’m looking at someone being raped. A lot of the time I can’t handle it. It’s f***ed. I never expected that this would be my life.
I’m just going to let people watch whatever little movie they think our lives are and go for it. Keep them guessing. That’s what I always say.
And even most recently her muttering of “Rats, cockroaches, parasites!” while in Paris for fashion week. But perhaps the most telling of them all:
I always say to myself I’m never going to give anything away because there’s never any point or benefit for me. I guarantee, when I have a baby, everyone is going to want to know my kid’s name and I’m not going to say it for ages.
These were only a few of her many famous quotes. What else could a woman who is so fiercely private that she plans on refusing to divulge her child’s name to the celebrity gossip machine be capable of? Just about anything?
Rob, although less physically demonstrative digitally, has been no more respectful of them than Kristen and late in 2012 once famously said that he should make “castrating” paparazzi his favorite past time and “that the tabloid industry does terrible, terrible things to the world. It makes people stupid.” He also has said:
Media culture is a monstrous thing, you can’t win. The annoying thing is that you can’t attack them, but you can’t defend yourself. The best thing you could possibly do is punch a paparazzi and give them their big payday.
You know, when the whole thing dries up and there’s hardly any paparazzi around — I don’t know, in 15 years or something — I like the idea of just one paparazzo coming out and trying to get a picture, and I just beat the shit out of him. I mean — out of nowhere — when my You know, picture’s not even worth…and I’ve spent all my money, so you can’t sue me!
Rob and Kristen’s mutual hatred of the paparazzi and the tabloid press was born and nurtured during a period of time when they rapidly became the most speculated about couple on the face of the planet. Trying to build a relationship out of the public eye as hordes of fans, paparazzi and tabloids tracked their every move from Vancouver to Los Angeles, Budapest to Paris, Montepuchiano, Italy to Montreal, and to the Isle of Wight. And more than any couple in the history of Hollywood, because of the new 24/7 tabloid world, there were always people watching, tweeting, posting, and reading. And make no mistake, no one was more aware of that than Rob and Kristen themselves. Which is what makes Kristen parading before some paparazzi on July 17, 2012 all the more ridiculous.
3. Rob and Kristen had been arguably foreshadowing the coming of this “cheating scandal” for months.
At the Breaking Dawn 1 Premier in November of 2011, Rob first talked of an Edward and Bella divorce in a red carpet interview with Marc Malkam. At the time, Kristen and several other cast members also talked of it. Elizabeth Reaser went so far to say that “I think Bella would stray if anyone was going to. I don’t think either of them will, but she’s so young. I mean, Edward’s got like a hundred years on her.” Billy Burke even joked about the boredom and the possibility of them having an open relationship with Jacob.
And in a spring 2012 Vogue interview, Kristen talked of how perfect and boring her life was and how she “couldn’t wait for someone to fuck” her over and how you can “learn a lot about life from adversity.” Words which were to be poured over and analyzed again and again once the “scandal” broke.
Then at Comic Con in 2012, just two weeks before July 17, Rob again talked of Bella & Edward’s “Mr. & Mrs. Smith thing” while on a panel, offering Stephanie Meyer a suggestion as to where the Saga could proceed if she were to write another sequel.
And mere days before the scandal breaking, Rob’s Breaking Dawn press day interview on July 16 where he purportedly said “No, I’ve never been betrayed by people who are actually in my life, like my friends or even my acquaintances. No one has ever done anything.”
So many people have called all of these things ironic, karma, or tempting the fates. But for me, these “coincidences” suggest a much more explicit strategy.
4. Despite the high profile public nature of this so-called “scandal”, surprisingly little credible evidence of it exists and what does exist contains significant gaps and problematic elements.
Despite claims that this “cheating scandal” occurred on July 17th (a date that has never been factually confirmed though FFN claimed it) and started with Kristen leaving a gym in Santa Monica, no other photos from the day in question have ever been disclosed despite a multi-hour surveillance involving up to purportedly four paparazzi. Only 55 photographs were ever produced from it and video evidence is completely lacking. This from one of the largest and most active paparazzi agencies in Los Angeles. Claims by some that there were more photos that were withheld or that Kristen bought them to preclude them from being made public is nothing more than bald speculation. A year later we are still dealing with the same old 55 photos. That’s it, that is all there is. The case is made or not made on this evidence.
The FameFlynet/US Magazine account of what happened is also rife with errors from where it happened, to when it happened, and as to how it happened. The photos fail to match up to the account. For a more detailed examination, See “It’s Time to Put Something to Rest: US Magazine’s Account of the Kristen Stewart Cheating Scandal Was Fabricated” at http://wp.me/p2JqVX-vD. An online poll associated with that blog found that 85% of those responding did not believe the FFN/USMagazine’s account of the events of that day. And yet that account forms one of the four key prongs of the argument supporting this so-called scandal.
5. Despite claims of a version of events, FameFlyNet, US Magazine, and PopSugar, the purveyors of the “scandal” don’t have a clue as to how, where, and under what circumstances the so-called “cheating” photographs were actually taken.
The epic mismatch between their claimed series of events and reality is legendary. Their version of a deserted downtown warehouse district ends up being a parking lot at 2272 S. Centinela Avenue in Santa Monica, right in the heart of the Santa Monica movie making industry and right around the corner from Rupert Sander’s production offices. A scenic overlook, complete with hikers, dogwalkers, and tourists, with a view of downtown LA and the Hollywood Sign, ends up being a quiet dead-end residential street, Pacific View Drive, with a non-descript guard rail looking north over Universal City with no view of downtown LA or the Hollywood Sign. Their version of Kristen sitting in her car turns out being taken right in front of the corporate offices of Summit Entertainment in Santa Monica at Stewart Street & Colorado Avenue. And multiple photos of Rupert walking turn out to be taken within three hundred yards of his house in the Hollywood Hills just minutes away from the guard rail site.
Yet, not one photo shows him being picked up, dropped off, or getting into or out of her car; Kristen’s car driving off; or their purported final good bye kiss. And not one shows Kristen being tailed from a gym to Los Feliz and back or anywhere else for that matter.
Hours of surveillance ends with only 55 photos, many of which are highly duplicative with minor variations. Suggesting more questions than they do answers.
6. Despite being perhaps one of the more noteworthy news events of the year, not a single paparazzi of the alleged four has ever been identified or ever stepped forward to claim that they were the ones who took the pictures. They remain “ethereal photographers”, faceless and nameless, never to be cross examined or even questioned as to what they claimed happened.
Despite some claims the contrary, the paparazzi account of what they saw that day is only available through second hand hearsay, primarily from the authors at US Magazine and through FameFlyNet President Scott Cosman who provided a version of their account to the LA Times. Other than his claim, there is absolutely nothing to show that FameFlyNet photographers were even involved in taking these pictures or that his four “paparazzi” existed at all. They could have just as easily been staged by Rob and Kristen with Rupert’s assistance and simply dropped into FFN’s lap. Which also explains why FFN was so clueless as to their origins and so reticent about identifying or producing the paparazzi for questioning. And Cosman’s claim that the photographers didn’t even know who the guy with Kristen was with until they “examined the pictures back at the office” stretches credulity to the breaking point.
Imagine for one moment a trial where the prosecution is never required to even call a witness to a crime. Where a person can be convicted and imprisoned based on what someone claims another witness saw or heard. And that person doesn’t even have to appear at the trial, they can just write about what they claim happened. Is that the kind of American justice you believe in?
7. Many of the “cheating photos” show evidence of staging and photo digital manipulation to throw people off the track of where they were taken or to signal to careful observers that the pictures are not what they purport to be . Despite that fact, the defects in those photos are readily detectable and eventually discovered, and the location of their shooting mysteriously comes to light.
Most of the South Centinela Avenue parking lot photos show evidence digital alteration of the side view mirror image, the rear view mirror image, and rear hatch back window reflections that cannot be matched to the actual scene. See the “Grand Punk Part 10” and “The Smoking Gun: Conclusive Evidence that the Kristen Stewart Cheating Scandal Was Staged” at http://wp.me/p2JqVX-rU.
Most of the Pacific View Drive guard rail photos show evidence of digital manipulation of Kristen’s height in relation to Rupert and the guardrail or both, or show evidence of distortions in the size and/or length of their hands and arms, show lighting errors and evidence of the use of artificial fill lighting, and obvious continuity errors involving rings, hats, and the condition of cars. See just one example below. An exhaustive analysis of the guardrail photos is contained in The Grand Punk Parts 11 and 12.
With one exception, none of these changes make the photos more salacious but rather simply alert careful viewers that the photos are not what they purport to be. The one photo that becomes more salacious defies the laws of physics and gravity. See that photo below.
Although some of these defects are subtle, nearly all of them are easily detected by just looking at them critically.
And then there is the little matter of how the shoot locations came to light. They didn’t become known because of the work of the tabloids. FameFlyNet even had to send photographers to the scenes after they were identified to photograph the sites. Something that is readily apparent on their own website where they list those pictures as being created on 7/26/2012 and how images of these “two together at these locations have just surfaced in the past two days”. FFN was obviously trying to cover their tracks and figure out what the hell had just happened. Some tabloids even thought the Pacific View Trail overlooked the Pacific Ocean and included pictures of the Pacific Ocean in their accounts! See for example, Hollywood Lies regurgitated version of the story from July 25, 2012:
Complete with a picture showing the Pacific Ocean and a view of where “they were allegedly caught kissing by photographers”. All the details? No, TOTALLY CLUELESS!
These shoot locations came to light because of the observations of people on blogs and in comments or more likely because the people actually responsible for them being taken leaked them onto the internet. Otherwise, we would have never known where they were taken.
Despite the problems inherent in the photos, these photos constitute the second of the four key prongs of the argument supporting this so-called scandal.
8. In spite of being successful, with a few notable exceptions, at keeping her relationship with Rob away from the paparazzi, Kristen was purportedly discovered in a so-called cinch with a married director in broad daylight, in public, showing little attempt to hide her identity. And in a car she had not been pictured in for months and that she had self-described as being a paparazzi magnet.
This from a woman who has managed to hide a relationship in plain sight for more than four years. A couple who was photographed holding hands only a few times, and in what one would term as intimate embraces in public only a few fleeting times more (the Montreal kiss; leaving the WFE premier; at the Cannes Film Festival and after party; and at Kristen’s Los Feliz house in October of 2013).
There was no surreptitious encounter, secret hotel rendezvous, no attempt at disguise or subterfuge. And at times during the so-called cinch, it appeared that either Kristen or Rupert stared dead at the photographers.
Despite unsupported claims by some of spy cameras, secret surveillance, and long range telephotos lens, evidence establishes that all of the photos were taken at relatively close range under 65 feet and under circumstances making it impossible for the photographers to secret themselves from view. See “The Grand Punk Part 10 and 11.” Notions that they were photographed without their knowledge, consent, or cooperation are baseless and contrary to the physical evidence. Just as are claims that they were contractually forced to cooperate in them being taken. See Busting Urban Legends About the So-Called Kristen Stewart Cheating Scandal: The PR Relationship Contract Clause Myth at http://wp.me/p2JqVX-Ep.
9. Despite high profile claims by People Magazine of both Kristen and Rupert’s “statements of apology”, People Magazine failed to disclose the source of, form of, or circumstances of how they obtained such statements and failed to establish how they link each of them to those purported statements.
People Magazine tried to leave people with the impression that Kristen and Rupert provided them with official press release statements which was anything but the truth. One of their own employees at the time tweeted that the so-called apologies were provided by sources not from the parties themselves, sources that were never identified. Neither Rupert nor Kristen have ever publicly acknowledged the existence or accuracy of these statements. And if it had come from through their reps and they wanted it out their, the reps would have freely invited People to identify the reps as providing them, providing further authenticity to the release. Yet People has been noticeably silent about exactly who they purportedly got these statements from. Yeah right, I can talk tabloid lingo with the best of them.
Already reeling from being scooped by US Magazine on the original account of the so-called “scandal”, People wasn’t about to get scooped again while they awaited some confirmation of the statements authenticity. We saw them do much the same recently when they admitted they ran the Rob and Kristen breakup story without confirmation from the actor’s agents. Checking with reps is a myth that they try to promote just to shore up their credibility, something many people mistakenly believe. But one that is obviously untrue.
Striped of all the fanfare, the only basis for believing the apologies at all comes from the fact that neither Kristen nor Rupert failed to deny making them. Yet even if it is believed that they in fact made the statements, nothing establishes that the statements contained within them are the truth. And the truth of the matter remains, we have know idea where these “apologies” came from. These tainted apologies are the final two prongs of the four key prongs of the argument supporting this so-called scandal.
10. From July 22nd to September 5th, Kristen was completely out of the public eye despite rampant speculation and misreporting as to her whereabouts. Rob was completely MIA from July 22nd to August 13th. And when they reappeared, Rob was sporting a suntan and Kristen was trying her hardest at the TIFF to convince people that she was malnourished from the stress.
Rob and Kristen’s complete disappearance from the public eye between July 22nd to August 13th is a mystery that remains to this day. As does Kristen’s continued disappearance until September 5th. And unlocking that mystery is the key to understanding what really happened in the so-called Kristen Stewart Cheating Scandal. Various unsubstantiated tabloid accounts tried to place them in various places but always apart. Most accounts tried to claim they were licking their wounds and trying to recover from a explosive breakup.
But right on cue, Rob appeared for his promotional duties for Cosmopolis in NY and eventually at the VMA’s in Los Angeles. And Kristen appeared for her promotional obligations in Toronto for On the Road. Despite tabloid tales of starvation and depression and breakup trauma, neither looked worse for the wear. For a discussion of the Kristen myth of Living on Redbulls & Nicotine see the later portion of “The Grand Punk Part 12.”
11. Despite a monumental public humiliation and betrayal, and the first public proclamation of her love for him while apologizing for an indiscretion with another man, Rob “forgives” Kristen in a matter of a couple months and the two are seen together again both publicly and privately in ways that are entirely contrary to tabloid claims that they have parted company.
Rumors of their “reconciliation” began to surface almost immediately after the so-called scandal broke, but solid evidence of them being together is evidenced in photos of the them taken on October 14th and 15th in Los Feliz, and at a home purchased by Kristen in Los Feliz sometimes referred to as Los Feliz 2 on October 17th. These last photos are most telling as the tabloid responsible for taking them was forced to take the photos down due to a criminal trespass that occurred in order to get them taken and the intimate behavior shown between the two of them in the photos. And though that tabloid and several others were forced to take them down, the photographs have remained on a number of Rob and Kristen fansites indefinitely for all to see.
12. Despite a virtual torrent of subsequent stories about them from the celebrity gossip machine, nearly all of these stories are baseless fabrications made up for the purposes of getting webhits and virtually all are made on the basis of unnamed and unidentified sources which are incapable of verification or testing for their credibility and truthfulness.
I endeavor to say that never has so much baseless bullshit been written about two people in Hollywood history. Following the “cheating scandal, the celebrity gossip machine rained nonsense onto the internet in endless quantities for months on end, and continued to do so well afterward. Something that has continued to this very day. To review a multitude of such nonsense stories, read my blogs at justiceforkristen.wordpress.com. There is not enough time in the day to debunk this endless BS. I venture to say that the vast majority of things written about Rob and Kristen’s personal life on the internet is patently untrue. Something which Rob himself has affirmed in an interview. And particularly where it is based on unnamed sources and it appears in a tabloid.
13. That despite claims after the so-called scandal that Rob refused to talk to her, couldn’t stand to be in the same room with her, refused to promote Breaking Dawn 2 with her, and would cease any involvement with her following the promotions, Rob and Kristen appeared together in multiple promotions for the film on MTV and in LA, Paris, Berlin, and Madrid; they vacationed together in England over the Thanksgiving holiday; and returned from England and remained together into the New Year.
Though some claimed they did so only to get through the promotions period, they continued together into the new year and even after a several week hiatus while Rob was filming The Rover in Australia. This entire period was marked by several unsubstantiated accounts of problems within their relationship and Rob stepping out. It got so ridiculous that I was predicting the stories before the tabloids were even writing them. See “Predicting Tabloid Garbage: Assessing Five Rob Kristen Stories Waiting to Happen at http://wp.me/p2JqVX-xU. Which were all obliterated when Rob returned straight to Kristen. That continued through and up to Kristen’s birthday which was marked by a major gathering of their friends at a restaurant in Los Feliz and them looking very much together.
Following that event, both Rob and Kristen were virtually chased through Coachella by a pack of paparazzi while they were trying to enjoy a weekend of music and fun. It was not long after that that Eleanore “the serial liar” Hutch of Hollywood Lies (Life) fabricated the Rupert Sanders As a Valet story. See “Oh the Tabloid BS Rob & Kristen Stories Just Keep Coming- Part 2” at http://wp.me/p2JqVX-z9. And the stage was set for even more tabloid nonsense.
14. Despite periodic claims of “breaking up”, “taking a break”, and “trial separations”, all available evidence suggests that they remained together up until May 12, 2013.
Despite claims of PR contracts and relationship strife, all of the available evidence up to May 12, 2013 suggests that Rob and Kristen remained together throughout without incident. But almost over night a series of developments exploded across the internet in May and the tabloids were selling a breakup big time although they were all over the map on why they claimed that it happened. For a review of some of this nonsense, see Examining the Case for a Rob & Kristen Breakup at http://wp.me/p2JqVX-EL ; and 2+2=5 WTF? at http://wp.me/p2JqVX-H6 . We will examine this nonsense more closely in Part 14 of the Grand Punk later.
15. Despite a year long obsession with the notion that a Kristen/Rupert hookup actually happened on July 17, 2012, there is insufficient provable evidence that such an event ever happened.
And I am stating it as a fact. I am sure that this conclusion is going to stir some controversy, so let me start out by saying that I am not some starry eyed teenage Robsten fan or a true believer in the Robsten dream. I will leave that to others. As I have stated before, I could care less about whether Rob and Kristen are together or not, whether they have found the “perfect love”, or whether they “hate each others guts”. This story is not about that for me.
What this story is about for me is the truth, and how multi-million dollar tabloid corporations manufacture “news” and millions of people blindly accept it without a second thought. How the traditional news media is being quickly overwhelmed by a 24/7 tabloid entertainment notion of what constitutes the truth and news. And what people are driven to when they are trying to navigate life in the fishbowl that Hollywood has become.
I’ll put it simply, the notion that a Kristen and Rupert hookup actually happened is a four legged stool that is only as strong and believable as the legs it stands on. Those legs in this case are, the FFN/US Magazine account of how the so-called hookup occurred; the photographic “evidence” that they offered of it; People Magazine’s claimed “statement of apology” by Kristen; and People Magazine’s and US Magazine’s claimed “statement of apology” by Rupert.
The Grand Punk Part 10, 11, and 12 collectively obliterate the notion that the FFN/Us Magazine account of the hookup is credible, something that a reasonable prudent person should rely on in making an important decision in their own lives. Similarly, they demonstrate that the “photographic evidence” is equally tainted and are patently insufficient to prove that the event actually occurred. And as for the final two legs, the apologies, relying on an unnamed, unidentified source to “sell” the notion of a “statement of apology” is a travesty of justice that should not be tolerated. People should not have to deny rubbish, the purveyors of news should have to prove their claims. This stool is little more than a pile of rubbish than can’t begin to support the claim of a Kristen & Rupert hookup.
And don’t even try to get started on the divorce. People get divorced every day for many different reasons. The Rupert and Liberty divorce can’t revive a notion that was already dead in the water. It is at best circumstantial evidence of a problem in the marriage that cannot be linked to the existence of an actual Kristen and Rupert hookup. And there was already plenty of evidence prior to the so-called cheating scandal to suggest that that marriage was troubled. Right out of Liberty’s mouth.
That is not to say however, that there are not going to be people who continue to believe this b ull. Rob said it best, “Tabloids make people stupid.” And some people find comfort in the stupidity. But for those of you who are really interested in understanding what actually happened, continuing to pretend that the hookup occurred is a waste of time. It’s old tripe that hasn’t really changed in over the past year. And it’s time to throw out the trash.
Where Do We Go From Here?
Let’s bury some scenarios. Back in The Grand Punk Parts 6, 7, and 8, I presented eleven scenarios that have been offered to attempt to explain what happened in the so-called Kristen Stewart cheating scandal. Five of them are immediately dead on arrival. Any scenario that is based on the notion that a Kristen/Rupert actually happen should be rejected. Given this conclusion all of the Kristen and Rupert Were Having an Affair and Got Caught Scenarios of The Grand Punk Part 7 can be discarded, including the prevailing FFN/US Magazine account Scenario 1 “The Lucky Paparazzi”, Scenario 2 The Lucky Paparazzi Un-embellished, Scenario 3 The Paparazzi on a Mission; Scenario 4 The Private Eye, and Scenario 5 The Kristen & Rupert Didn’t Care if They Got Caught. May they rest in peace. You may review them for historical purposes and to do combat with online babblers but they will not further your understanding of what actually happened in this case.
Given the discussion here about the reality of the Rob & Kristen relationship, I think can also safely bury Scenario 11, The Faux Romance.
In Part 13 of The Grand Punk we will take a look at what’s left focusing particularly on the staged scenarios and chart a course for our further examinations. In the meantime, try to weather the tabloid shit storm that this day is sure to bring. And take a very serious look at what happened at Coachella this year. It may provide the clues for why the last two months have been a wild ride.
