“After Rob moved his things out of their Los Angeles home, he then told Kristen he wanted Bear,” the gossip site cites a source as saying.
Stewart, 22, and Pattinson, 26, adopted the rescue from a Louisiana animal shelter last year while filming “Breaking Dawn.”
"I'm one of those guys who'd adopt a whole animal shelter . . . Thank God that Kristen was with me,” Pattinson reportedly told a German newspaper at the time. “So we just adopted one dog. A mutt. We called him Bear.”
For the couple, who were rumored to be on the road to marriage, adopting the dog proved a chance to play at parenting.
