Kristen Stewart and Alicia Cargile have broken up, according to a new report saying that the actress and her assistant girlfriend hit a rough patch.
Reports of Kristen Stewart dating Alicia Cargile emerged earlier this year, despite the Twilight star's carefully cultivated persona of wanting privacy.
It certainly felt like Kristen was slightly open about the fact - or at least not denying - that she was in a lesbian relationship with her close confidant.
They were often seen very cozy with one another, holding hands, cuddling, etc., and Kristen even spoke - gasp! - about how close they'd gotten.
One tabloid even went so far as to report that the couple secretly married, citing a quote from Stewart (allegedly overheard proclaiming as much).
That was clearly absurd, but still, the two seemed like they were involved in a legitimate romance ... until reports surfaced this week that it's over.
Media reports claim that Kristen put the brakes on her relationship with Alicia and they split; the couple hasn’t been seen together in weeks now.
These split rumors have not been independently verified. Then again, neither have reports tying the couple together in the first place. So ...
Can a possible, unconfirmed, non-couple even "break up"?
