Robert Pattinson 'wants amicable love split'

Robert Pattinson apparently wants to remain "amicable" with Kristen Stewart following their supposed split.
The stars met on the set of the first Twilight movie and have a famously on/off relationship.
Things hit rock bottom when Kristen admitted having an affair with married director Rupert Sanders last year and now Robert has reportedly decided he wants nothing more than friendship from the actress.
"Rob really wanted it to work but he just felt like the trust was gone," a source explained to British magazine Star.
"Neither of them seemed really happy and he just thought it was easier to end it for good. He was honest with her and said they had been through so much he hoped they could remain amicable."
The pair seemed to rekindle their relationship in time to promote the final Twilight film Breaking Dawn - Part 2 at the end of last year.
However, cracks started to show when Robert attended the Golden Globe Awards alone earlier this month.
Despite meeting Kristen at an after-party, the couple looked strained and the 22-year-old actress is apparently finding the situation difficult.
"It's come as a massive blow as they had been making big plans to start afresh this year," an insider said.
"Rob is really keen to keep everything civil and work on being friends. It would be too much to be completely without her because she is such a massive part of his life."
