Rob Pattinson reportedly played a prank on his girlfriend Kristen Stewart after rumors surfaced claiming the actress was spotted with film director Rupert Sanders.
Stewart, 23, was photographed entering a waiting vehicle April 22 and while the driver resembled Sanders, 41, he was later identified to be someone else. Pattinson, who Stewart cheated on with Sanders in 2012, was able to find humor in the situation.
The "Twilight" star reportedly "faked a message about an appointment with a local lie detector specialist, and urged Kristen to go to the appointment to prove she wasn't lying about meeting up with Rupert," HollywoodLife.com reports.
Various media outlets initially assumed the photos showed Stewart with Sanders, who is her former "Snow White & The Huntsman" director. However, Pattinson allegedly knew the man is a valet driver and proceeded with the joke.
"He just laughed when someone showed him those pictures– he knows the valet well and thought he would have some fun by setting up a lie detector test then asking Kristen to take part," a source told The Sun U.K.
"Luckily she saw the funny side of it," the source said. "Kristen and Rob have been getting along brilliantly recently."
New reports claim Stewart, who has been dating Pattinson for four years, has been been talking about marriage to close friends in recent weeks.
"Rob and I will get married," a source quoted Stewart as telling friends recently according to publication Grazia.
Pattinson, who was eventually able to forgive Stewart for cheating with Sanders in July, reportedly gave the actress a "commitment ring" for her birthday. The ring allegedly marks their love for one another.
"They were so cute together, they weren't glued to each other's side. Kristen was being a good hostess and working the room. But whenever they were standing near each other, they were touching," an eyewitness said about Stewart's birthday celebration.
"Rob had his arm draped around her a lot and every once in a while they'd sneak a kiss. They both looked so in love!" the source went on.
