Today in great internet rumors, multiple fans claim they spotted Twilight costars and real-life exes Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson hanging out together IRL on February 11, at Edendale, a bar in Los Angeles’ Silver Lake neighborhood. "Was just at bar enjoying my friends birthday and in comes Robert Pattinson which blew my Twilight mind up, and then Kristen Stewart walked in and now I’m reliving my high school Twilight fantasies," one wrote (opens in new tab). "It wouldn’t have been cool to take a picture of them, they just seemed like two friends hanging out," she added later (opens in new tab).
Wow! Did not expect this response! It wouldn’t have been cool to take a picture of them, they just seemed like two friends hanging out.February 12, 2018

Of course, no photos surfaced to confirm this hangout actually happened, and some fans think this Robsten hang is just great internet fiction. Stewart and Pattinson haven't been photographed together since November 2012.
Pattinson is officially single after ending things with his fiancée FKA Twigs (opens in new tab) in October. Stewart has been most recently romantically linked to Stella Maxwell; they were last spotted out together earlier this month. (opens in new tab)
Stewart and Pattinson dated for nearly four years between 2008 and 2012. The relationship ended with a scandal (opens in new tab): Stewart was photographed kissing Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, then issued a public apology to Pattinson in July 2012 (opens in new tab). The two reconciled but officially broke up for good in May 2013 (opens in new tab). Stewart, over the last two years, has opened up about what it was like dating Pattinson.
"People wanted me and Rob to be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product," Stewart explained to T Magazine (opens in new tab) in an August 2016 interview. "It wasn't real life anymore. And that was gross to me." She was closed publicly because "it's not that I want to hide who I am or hide anything I'm doing in my life. It's that I don't want to become a part of a story for entertainment value."
"When I was dating Rob, the public were the enemy—and that is no way to live," Stewart told the Sunday Times (opens in new tab) later in a March 2017 interview."I didn't talk about my first relationships that went public [like with Rob] because I wanted things that are mine to be mine. I hated it—that details of my life were being turned into a commodity and peddled around the world."
