Robert Pattinson was spotted flying solo in London over Christmas, but his separation from his girlfriend wasn't necessarily out of choice and apparently had more to do with Kristen Stewart being too scared to face his big sisters over the holidays.
They might be all loved up and back together, but apparently Rob's big sisters haven't been so forgiving of Kristen's car snogging antics with director Rupert Sanders last summer.
In fact, they've reportedly been trying to persuade him to kick her to the curb once and for all.
"The rows kicked off on Christmas Eve when protective Lizzy had some words with Robert about getting back with a cheat," an insider apparently told The Sun.
"They were out drinking in Barnes, where Rob grew up. Lizzy was giving him grief about taking Kristen back and said she's always hated the way he's been treated by her.
"He and Kristen spent the festive season apart partly because she's terrified of facing Rob's family," the source added.
Argh, we don't fancy facing a big sister scorned either. Especially as in our heads this Lizzy character is actually Rosalie from Twilight and we all know what she's like when someone gives her a wedding dress to play with.
What do you think about all this - reckon Rob's sisters have the right idea or is it a step too far?
