Robert Pattinson is said to have forgiven Kristen for cheating on him
Robert Pattinson reconciled with Kristen Stewart because she is the only person who can understand his life.
The British actor is said to have forgiven Kristen for cheating on him with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, despite initially breaking off their relationship, as they found fame on the Twilight Saga franchise together and have a deep connection because of it.
A source told Us Weekly: "He started thinking nobody else would understand his life. His rational voice told him not to toss a three-year relationship for one infidelity.
"Rob weighed his options. He wouldn't even know where to start if he wand Kristen were to break up for good. They have a very deep connection. Plus, they're young. All relationships at that age have drama."
However, the couple are keeping their reconciliation from their fans as they are worried about the backlash, especially as Robert's own friends are unsupportive.
The source added: "They don't want to see him get hurt again. But Rob has hope in their romance.
"They're afraid of backlash, so they're keeping things on the down-low. They'll wait a few months, then announce they're getting back together."
