The actress was keen to spend time with Rob

It seems Kristen Stewart was a little upset about not getting to see Robert Pattinson over the festive period.

The actress, 23, had hoped that Rob, 27, would fly to see her in LA after spending New Year’s Eve in New York but instead the Brit hunk chose to return to London.

It’s believed that Robert wanted to spend time with his family before heading to Morocco to shoot his new flick Queen Of The Desert.

The couple were believed to have split last spring but it was rumoured that they’d patched things up when Kristen was spotted at Rob‘s home in October.

It was later said that they’d enjoyed an ‘intimate and sweet’ Thanksgiving together, where Kristen rustled up a traditional meal for her Twilight co-star.

But it appears Rob is happy to take their relationship slowly for now.

‘Of course Kristen was disappointed with his decision, but she’s been nothing but supportive and understanding,’ a source tells Hollywood Life.

‘She realises how important his family is to him.’
