Kristen Stewart has reportedly turned to Buddhism following her May split from Robert Pattinson.
The "Twilight" actress, 23, was reportedly left heartbroken after her split from Pattinson, 27, but she is now focused on obtaining happiness again. The on-and-off couple split after four years shortly after Pattinson's May 13 birthday, according to HollywoodLife.com.
"Kristen has been studying Nichiren Buddhism. It's a type of Buddhism, where you chant Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo. Chanting is suppose to help you through tough times and bring you inner peace and ultimate happiness," a source HL. "Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr also practice the same type of Buddhism. She has a couple of friends who practice and they encouraged her to get involved."
In addition to studying Buddhism, Stewart, who began dating Pattinson in 2008, reportedly turned to her close friends, including singer Taylor Swift, after the breakup. They have reportedly been a great source of support for the actress.
"Kristen is super sad over the whole thing," another source said previously. "She's depressed and rightly so."
On Saturday a source revealed why exactly Pattinson and Stewart recently ended their on-and-off relationship for good. The British actor was reportedly "haunted" by Stewart's 2012 cheating scandal, which involved her married "Snow White and The Huntsman" film Director, Rupert Sanders.
"It all comes down to when she cheated on him, he couldn't let it go and would always make remarks to her saying things like, 'How do I know you are there?' ... 'How do I know you are telling the truth?' ... 'What else have you lied about?'" a source said.
"Her cheating basically opened other doors in their relationship of what they didn't like of each other," the source continued. "There conversations where more bickering than loving, and in front of friends Kristen made jokes of the incident making it look like they were above it ... She got a little cocky with it and he decided to end it after it all built up to one final argument."
