Tuesday gossip roundup: Royal couple wins court battle over Kate Middleton topless pics
Not even a cheating scandal can keep Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson apart, as sources tell the Sun that the “Twilight” co-stars are back together. “They pretty much decided they couldn’t live without each other. Kristen poured her heart out to Robert and told him it was a one-off and a mistake,” a source says of Stewart’s being caught cheating with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director, Rupert Sanders. “Rob sees it as Kristen made a really stupid mistake. After a lot of long tearful talks, they’ve worked it out.” The couple, who will be making the publicity rounds for the final “Twilight” movie starting next month, are laying low while they can, though: “For now they are focusing on themselves,” the source says.
Kate Middleton and her husband, Prince William, have won their first court victory in the wake of Closer magazine publishing topless photos of Middleton, according to the Guardian. A French court has ordered an injunction preventing any further use of the images by the publication. The photos must be handed over within 24 hours, and the magazine’s publishing company will be fined $13,000 a day if it publishes more of them or sends them to a third party. A separate criminal investigation has been launched to see if the magazine violated William and Kate’s privacy by publishing the photos. A guilty verdict could lead to jail time for Closer’s editor.
As stories of her erratic behavior mount, Amanda Bynes apparently she has no plans to enter rehab despite reports earlier this week that she would, according to E! News.

She has also been charged separating for two hit-and-run incidents.
