Actor Robert Pattinson, having had his “heart ripped out” by a sex scandal involving his girlfriend of three years, Kristen Stewart, has been hiding out at the ranch of actress Reese Witherspoon, according to media reports.
Pattinson and Witherspoon co-starred in the 2011 feature “Water for Elephants.”
Pattinson “ditched his former love nest in Los Angeles for new digs — a stunning $7 million ranch where he can mend his broken heart,” the New York Daily News reports. The story adds: “The Ojai, Calif., ranch is Witherspoon’s vacation home and where she married talent agent Jim Toth last year.”
People magazine cites a source close to Pattinson who said the actor was devastated by news of Stewart’s affair with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director, Rupert Sanders.
Said the source: "There was no sign that either of them was unhappy. He would have done anything for her."
The source said Pattinson had his "heart ripped out" by the news.
Stewart, too, is reportedly heartbroken. A source close to the actress told People: "Telling Robert was the worst thing she’s ever had to do.”
Media reports indicated Stewart has been calling and sending texts to Pattinson since her public apology last week and is trying to revive their relationship.
Pattinson appears to have landed in a comfortable setting. The Daily News piece gave this description of Witherspoon’s spread: “The ranch was recently featured in Elle Decor magazine, and gives Witherspoon, her husband, and her two kids with ex-hubby Ryan Phillippe a ‘serene setting.’ She’s currently expecting her first child with Toth. The property, meanwhile, is also home to donkeys, goats, pigs and chickens.”
