As the promotional tour for the final instalment of the Stephanie Meyer's Twilight Saga, Robert Pattinson begins in Australia, while Kristen Stewart has been flown a few thousand miles away to Japan. 

This geographical split comes as a surprise and disappointment to fans and media alike who were hoping to see the couple together, after they temporarily broke up during the summer. Stewart cheated on Pattinson with a married man, Rupert Sanders, who directed Snow White and the Huntsman in which Stewart starred. 

In photos neither member of the fractured couple, seen in cities across the planet from one another, looked particularly happy. The Mirror reported a source telling them that "It's too early for [Pattinson] to fully accept that they're an item again, but Kristen is pushing for them to go back to how they were... the truth is, she's going to have to take it slowly with Robert because he's still having trouble trusting her again." Understandably so. 

Although the couple are currently forced into spending time apart, it wont be long before they're reunited. Kristen reportedly bought a house just down the road from Pattinson so they'll have their own space, yet never be too far away from each other. The final instalment of Twilight will be released on November 16th.
