And with the pair just wrapping up promotion of their new movie, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II – Robert's close inner circle want him to end his newly rekindled romance with Kristen.
"It's been awful for his family and friends to watch him, under the glare of the world, next to this woman who cheated on him and broke his heart," a source told British newspaper The Sun.
"Many held back while he was promoting the movie. But now they are making their feelings known.''
"He has to ditch her. She is making him look like a total idiot,'' they added.

Robert has made no secret of finding his life in the spotlight a challenge, so we couldn't imagine how it must feel for the scandal to be unravelled in front of everyone's eyes.
"Robert has really struggled with the immense fame thrust upon him by starring in the Twilight movies," the insider said.
"So the sensible thing to do would surely be to dump the woman who has turned his life into a sop opera.''
"But the bottom line is that she has a firm hold over him and he's struggling to make a clean break,'' they added.
