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. After having her car impounded Sunday, Bynes has been using taxis and car services to run errands around town, including a shopping trip in West Hollywood during which witnesses say she locked herself in a store dressing room for two hours and “wouldn’t stop talking to herself.” While rehab might not be in her immediate future, court is: Bynes is expected before a judge Friday for a hearing on her pending DUI cases. She has also been charged separating for two hit-and-run incidents.

One Direction member Niall Horan is putting to rest rumors that he is dating singer and American “X Factor” judge Demi Lovato. “Traveling around the world and all the promo that we do — it doesn’t leave time for a girlfriend. It really doesn’t. Demi is really cool and we’re really good friends,” the 19-year-old Irishman tells the Daily Mirror.

Snowboarder and Olympic gold medalist Shaun White was reportedly arrested for public intoxication in a hotel in Nashville, TN, according to TMZ, though he was briefly hospitalized before heading to jail. White reportedly trashed his hotel room, and when hotel staff confronted him, he set off several fire alarms and attempted to flee on foot, eventually falling and sustaining a head injury. After receiving medical treatment, he was booked on counts of public intoxication and vandalism.
