Robert Pattinson is reportedly not taking his split from Kristen Stewart lightly, despite recent reports claiming otherwise.
The British actor, 27, initiated the breakup in May almost one-year after Stewart's infamous affair, and the "Twilight" co-stars are both said to be devastated. Although Pattinson appears to be moving forward with his life after ending the pair's four-year relationship, sources claim it has not been easy for the actor.
"Contrary to what Kristen believes, Rob is not taking their breakup lightly. He just doesn't show his emotions openly. He's an introverted guy, especially when it comes to relationships," a friend of Pattinson told HollywoodLife.com. "He's not one to open up and blab about what's going on."
Since the split, the pair, who first began dating in 2008, have been focused on work. Pattinson, who recently moved out of Stewart's Los Feliz neighborhood, is currently busy filming his new film "Maps To The Stars," while Stewart is working on "Camp X Ray."
"Rob is missing Kristen like crazy. He thought by moving to Beverly Hills and hanging out with his new friends it would take his mind off Kristen, but it has done the complete opposite," a source said "His distractions are only making him miss Kristen more."
It is still unclear why exactly the pair split after dating on-and-off for four-years, however critics believe Stewart's cheating scandal may have led to trust issues on Pattinson's part. The actress, 23, admittedly cheated with a married man in 2012 and while the British actor was left crushed, sources say there is still a chance of a future reconciliation.
"They will probably pick up where they left off," a source told Us magazine in relation to the pair's recent reunion.
On Aug. 4 Pattinson reportedly visited Stewart at her L.A. Home where they had "a very intense conversation."
"Rob initially reached out to Kristen because he wanted to stop by and pick up the rest of his stuff, but apparently he also wanted to see her," a friend of Stewart's said.
"He stopped by on [August 3] and they both spent some time together, catching up. Kristen was really happy to see him, but I think in the end they were both sad because they still have feelings for each other," the source explained.
