Showbiz round-up: Kristen Stewart’s gross love life

Kristin Stewart and Robert Pattinson: their relationship was a product.

KRISTEN STEWART says her relationship with Twilight co-star ROBERT PATTINSON became “a product” which she called “gross”.

The Hollywood actress said her high-profile romance with Pattinson “wasn’t real life any more” after the pair shot to international fame while starring in the vampire movie series.

The couple split after she had an affair with Snow White And The Huntsman director RUPERT SANDERS in 2012.

Stewart, 26, told the New York Times’ T magazine: “People wanted me and Rob to be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product.

“It wasn’t real life any more. And that was gross to me. It’s not that I want to hide who I am or hide anything I’m doing in my life. It’s that I don’t want to become a part of a story for entertainment value.”

  • ADELE has cancelled a concert in America after revealing she is suffering from a bad cold.

The music superstar apologised as she told fans she was too unwell to perform at the gig in Phoenix, Arizona, on Wednesday.

She was due to appear for a second night at the 18,000-seat Talking Stick Resort Arena as part of her sell-out 2016 world tour.

In a video posted on her Twitter account, a visibly emotional Adele said: “I’m really, really sorry. I’ve had a cold for a couple of days and I’ve been pushing through it.

“I did my show last night and I loved it but I pushed too hard and my cold has gotten the better of me.”

The Hello singer added: “I’ve enjoyed my tour so much and cancelling shows has not been something I want to do.

“I’m so sorry to let you down. I know lots of people will be flying in from all over. It’s the last thing I want to do but I have to look after myself because I’ve got so many more shows to do.

“I will reschedule this show, I promise you. And I will come back and I’ll smash it for you.”

  • TV presenter CHARLIE WEBSTER has miraculously come out of a coma in a Rio de Janeiro hospital.

The 33-year-old Team GB ambassador was on life support after contracting a rare strain of malaria while watching the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games.

Her mother, brother and manager flew from the UK to be by her bedside. Advice was also been provided by the London School of Tropical Medicine.

The former Sky and ITV sports presenter fell seriously ill on August 6 following a 3,000-mile (4,828km) charity cycle ride, having arrived in Rio a few days earlier.

Webster was admitted to hospital, where doctors initially thought she was dehydrated following the gruelling six-week Ride To Rio challenge. However, her condition deteriorated after she developed a severe complication from a bacterial infection. On Thursday, a message posted on her Twitter page read: “Thank you very much for all your messages of support, it means so much. #TeamCharlie.”

Webster had cycled 1,600 miles (2,575km) from Recife in the north-east of the country to Rio in 39 days with the widower of breast cancer fundraiser Jane Tomlinson.
