Donald Trump Gave Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson Dating Advice in 2012

Imagine the U.S. president tweeting about your breakup.

It happened to Kristen Stewart. The actress, who will host Saturday Night Live on Feb. 4, says President Donald Trump was pretty vocal about her public breakup from then-boyfriend and Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson. Trump was, of course, just a TV celebrity and business person at the time.

“He was really obsessed with me, which was f***ing crazy. Like what? I can’t even understand it,” Stewart told Variety in Park City, Utah, during the 2017 Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 20. “It’s such far-out concept that I don’t want to believe that actually is happening. It’s insane.”

She wasn’t kidding. In 2012, the 45th president sent out a series of five tweets claiming Stewart cheated “like a dog” and advising Pattinson to “be smart.”

He followed up a few weeks later with tweets to reiterate his stance on the celebrity relationship, adding Stewart “will cheat on him again.”

Though Trump has become known for his inflammatory tweets, it’s odd he felt so strongly about Stewart’s relationship status. Perhaps he was just a really big Twilight fan, too?
