Kristen Stewart pulls out of MTV Awards

2012-08-17 09:49

Los Angeles – Kristen Stewart has pulled out of a TV awards ceremony she was due to host with her estranged boyfriend Robert Pattinson.

The Twilight duo was lined up to appear as presenters at the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles next month.

But Kristen (22), is now heading to the Toronto International Film Festival to promote her movie On The Road instead.

Their appearance would have been the first time they have been seen together in public since her fling with married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders (41), was revealed.

Surprise guests
Insiders say 26-year-old Pattinson will now attend the show alone.

An awards source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “Bosses were hoping that Kristen and Robert would be surprise guests before this scandal blew up. The idea was for them to jointly present awards ... but that has been changed.”

Robert was mobbed by fans as he promoted his latest movie Cosmopolis in New York.

He ducked questions about the scandal, adding: “I have never been interested in selling my personal life. That is the reason you go on TV.”
