Absence makes the heart grow fonder and nothing could be more true for Kristen Stewart. Her on/off beau of three years, Robert Pattinson, has been 8,000 miles away in Australia shooting his movie The Rover and sources tell In Touch he's reflecting on his relationship with Kristen as they spend time apart. “Rob doesn’t want her to visit,” a friend of the troubled couple tells the new issue of In Touch. “He felt like they needed space. He wants a break.”
And though it’s been 50 days and counting since the couple were last united, a source on the set of The Rover tells In Touch, “Rob is really enjoying himself.”
NEWS: Kristen & Rupert in LA While Robert is Overseas
Seeming to have no trouble keeping his mind off his relationship, Rob was spotted at a tavern near his shooting location on Feb. 24, chowing down on garlic bread and chatting up the locals. “He was relaxed and friendly,” the eyewitness recalls to In Touch. “He even complimented one waitress on her hairstyle.”
But stateside, Kristen can’t help but worry that she’s losing Rob for good. Still recovering from her scandalous fling with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, which caused Rob to break up with her last summer, friends of the couple say her insecurities are driving him away once again. “She was calling and texting him constantly — if he didn’t respond she would fly off the handle,” the friend dishes to In Touch. “So he just stopped responding.”
