Twilight actress had a fling last summer

Friends of Kristen Stewart say the man she was pictured getting into a car with on Tuesday was not her old fling Rupert Sanders as some had speculated.

The Twilight actress was snapped getting into the vehicle – with a mystery man at the wheel – outside Mexican restaurant Malo Taqueria in Silver Lake, sparking speculation that it was film director Rupert, 42.

But it appears that K-Stew’s boyfriend Robert Pattinson, 26, can breathe a sigh of relief after both friends and onlookers denied it was Kristen’s former flame.

That man is a driver, a valet driver,’ a source at the restaurant tells Metro.

After he drove the car to the front of the parking area, he got out and the two young women in the photo got into the car.

That young girl wearing glasses, Kristen Stewart, got into the passenger’s side. She is a regular here and very friendly.’

Whilst Kristen found herself at the centre of speculation again, Rob was snapped arriving at LAX Airport after flying in from New York.

Kristen, 23, confessed to cheating on Rob with married Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders last summer after photos emerged of them kissing.

Rupert’s British model wife Liberty Ross, who he has two kids with, has since filed for divorce.
