Robert Pattinson’s “Extremely Awkward” Moment at Coachella

Robert Pattinson’s Awkward Moment at CoachellaActor Robert Pat­tin­son, 27, and model Lib­erty Ross, 35, have prob­a­bly never even shared a con­ver­sa­tion, but the two celebri­ties have a lot in common—they were both left heart­bro­ken when their sig­nif­i­cant oth­ers were caught hav­ing an illicit affair.

As you’ll prob­a­bly recall, Robert Pattinson’s long­time ex-girlfriend, 24-year-old Kris­ten Stew­art, had an affair with her much older Snow White and the Hunts­man direc­tor, 43-year-old Rupert Sanders, who was mar­ried to Lib­erty Ross at the time. Pat­tin­son and Stew­art even­tu­ally ended their rela­tion­ship, and Lib­erty Ross pulled the plug on her mar­riage to Rupert Sanders.

Lib­erty Ross and Robert Pat­tin­son have both since moved on, but it didn’t make it any less uncom­fort­able when the two scorned celebri­ties ran into each other at a party dur­ing the 2014 Coachella Music Fes­ti­val. Accord­ing to insid­ers, they “didn’t speak to each other,” but they “def­i­nitely saw each other” and the run-in was still “extremely awk­ward.” It’s a good thing Kris­ten Stew­art and Rupert Sanders weren’t there, too.

Speak­ing of those two, Sanders report­edly tried to restart his affair with Kris­ten Stew­art after his mar­riage to Lib­erty Ross ended, because he “fell in love with [Stew­art] a long time before he laid a fin­ger on her.” But Stew­art was sup­pos­edly more con­cerned about fix­ing her tar­nished rep­u­ta­tion than she was about dat­ing the direc­tor again.

Mean­while, Sanders’ ex-wife has found a new older man to spend her days with—Liberty Ross is now report­edly dat­ing Inter­scope Records co-founder, Jimmy Iovine, 60, who’s esti­mated to be worth around $700 million.

What do you think: If you ran into the ex of the per­son your ex cheated with, would you talk to them or just avoid them altogether?
