"Twilight" fans were heartbroken by Kristen Stewart's public admission that she cheated on her boyfriend and co-star Robert Pattinson. But the scandal is unlikely to affect box-office returns for the final installment in the vampire-romance juggernaut due this fall, or even harm the image of the 22-year-old actress, some analysts said. "It could make her actually more alluring," said Ian Drew, a senior editor at Us Weekly magazine, which features compromising photos of Stewart and her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders, 41, in its latest issue out Friday. Stewart, whom Forbes named Hollywood's highest-paid actress last month, issued an apology to People magazine Wednesday, saying she is "deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected." "This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob," she said. "I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry." Stewart and Pattinson, 26, have been in a relationship for several years after meeting on the set of "Twilight." Sanders, who is married to actress Liberty Ross, 33 -- who portrayed the mother of Stewart's Snow White in the "Huntsman" -- and has two children, followed with his own apology. "I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family," he said. Box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian of Hollywood.com said reports of infidelity could even draw more viewers to theaters for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2," out Nov. 16. He said, "I think it only serves to raise awareness of the movie."New guardian named for Jackson children
A judge stepped into the turmoil roiling the Jackson family, appointing the son of Tito Jackson to serve as temporary guardian of Michael Jackson's children in the absence of the family matriarch and in the midst a feud over the pop superstar's estate. Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff temporarily suspended Katherine Jackson as guardian because she is in Arizona and hadn't spoken with them in several days. He appointed Tito Joe "TJ" Jackson to serve as temporary guardian. Beckloff said there was no evidence that Katherine Jackson had done anything wrong but instead it appeared she was being prevented from fulfilling her role through the "intentional acts of third parties." He also said the children -- Prince, Paris and Blanket -- cannot be taken outside California without court approval.
CHARGED: A paparazzo who allegedly pursued teen pop star Justin Bieber earlier this month will face criminal charges, the L.A. city attorney's office said. The charges against Paul Raef, 30, marked the first case filed under the state's harsher anti-paparazzi law. Raef faces up to one year in county jail and fines totaling $3,500.
