Robert Pattinson is reportedly staying in touch with Kristen Stewart via social networking site Skype as he continues to work overseas.

The "Queen Of The Desert" star, 27, is reportedly filming scenes for the upcoming movie in Morocco and Stewart, 23, is currently based in Los Angeles. The "Twilight" stars split in May 2013 however they reunited for a Dog date in October which fueled reconciliation rumors.

While they are not back together, insiders claim they are committed to rebuilding their friendship and that a rekindled romance has not been ruled out.

"Being away from each other has actually made them closer," an insider told

"Kristen and Rob have been keeping in touch by Skyping," the source revealed. "They make sure to Skype at least once a week and text in between, and send each other funny photos."

On Jan. 2 Pattinson was photographed enjoying brunch with friends including actress Dakota Fanning in Brooklyn, New York. The actor has been in London since November however he briefly returned to the US in January before flying out of the country again.

Stewart was reportedly disappointed that the British actor did not visit her upon his recent return to the US however the actress is doing her best to be supportive of his work commitments abroad. It is unclear when the pair will physically reunite again so for now they are committed to regular Skype sessions.

"Kristen has no solid plans to see Rob. … She knows when they finally do see each other it will be some much-needed quality time," the source said.

The pair, who began dating in 2008, split last year over trust issues stemming from Stewart's 2012 affair with her married "Snow White and the Huntsman" film director Rupert Sanders. The Hollywood actress is said to be determined to win back Pattinson's trust with the hope that they can one day be together again.

"He hasn't fully forgiven her but he has processed what she did," a source previously told Us magazine. "They are in constant contact. He misses his quiet times with her."
