Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart speaking to Stephanie Meyer

Los Angeles: Actor Robert Pattinson and ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart have been leaning on Twilight author Stephanie Meyer following their split.

The scribe called the former couple to check on them when news broke about the end of Pattinson and Stewart`s relationship.

"Stephenie Meyer has reached out to both Rob and K-Stew to make sure they`re good after the breakup. She`s kind of like a big sister to them and they love her, so she`s been a perfect person to talk with," a source said.

Pattinson recently reached out to Stewart and was spotted leaving her house in LA.

"He stopped by on the weekend and they both spent some time together, catching up. Kristen was really happy to see him but I think in the end they were both sad because they still have feelings for each other.

"It`s not as simple as just getting back together. Seeing each other brought up a lot stuff for both of them. For now, work, not rebuilding a relationship comes first. It`s sad," the source added.
