Robert Pattinson really can't win out of the situation with Kristen Stewart- either he's left heartbroken and alone, or when getting back together with K-Stew since her infidelity (which he has done), he gets abuse from all angles for his misguided choices. And this Christmas sees his family attacking, according to a source for The Sun.

"The rows kicked off on Christmas Eve when protective Lizzy had some words with Robert about getting back with a cheat." The source told the paper, "They were out drinking in Barnes, where Rob grew up. Lizzy was giving him grief about taking Kristen back and said she's always hated the way he's been treated by her. He and Kristen spent the festive season apart partly because she's terrified of facing Rob's family."

It's only natural for his family to be a little protective, given that the American siren cheated on Rob with the married director of Snow White and the Huntsman, Rupert Sanders, in which she starred. She and Rupert have both apologised since and both partners are giving them another chance- rightly or wrongly. Sanders had a lot more to lose given that he's married with kids. Other reports say that Rob has put Kristen on probation until Valentines day, at which point he'll decide whether it's all or nothing.
