Rob Pattinson & Kristen Stewart: Is it really over?


It’s looking permanent this time. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are on a break again. Apparently, the Twilight costars couldn’t get past Stewart’s affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders last summer.That fling may be ongoing. In April, the Web was aflutter with pictures of her and the soon to be divorced Sanders in a car together.

“All this stuff came up,” a source close to Pattinson tells Us Weekly.

Life & Style is reporting that the Brit has moved his stuff out of Kristen’s home in L.A. and into his own home that he kept up a few miles away.

“He showed up early in the morning in a big red pickup truck and was in the house for maybe 30 minutes,” an eyewitness tells the magazine. “When he came out, the back of the truck was loaded with stuff.” Including his two dogs.

The onlooker added Rob “looked miserable.”

Money problems

Can someone spot Sinbad a few million or so? The comedian filed for bankruptcy for the second time, TMZ reports. Sinbad filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy last month, claiming that he has $10,991,715 in debt, but only $131,000 in assets. A lot of his problems stems from too much retail therapy, but the IRS is also to blame: Sinbad (who cops to an income of $16,000 a month) says he owes $8 million to Uncle Sam.

Back to school

Barbra Streisand will be presented with an honorary Ph.D. when she visits Israel next month.

The university’s school of Jewish studies is named after her father, Emanuel.

    Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley no longer speak: Is it because of Scientology?

    Que paso? Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley used to be so close. They met as partners on Dancing with the Stars and stayed in touch but these days they no longer speak. “She stopped getting along with me,” Chmerkovskiy told Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. “I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can't be associated with, I am no longer to be spoken with, and sorry, but it is what it is.” Jennifer Lopez, rumored to be dating the dancer, is besties with Leah Remini, who recently left the Church of Scientology, and that perhaps doesn’t sit well with Alley, who remains loyal to Tom Cruise’s church.
