Thursday gossip roundup: Robert Pattinson doesn’t understand cheating

There’s been no word yet of how Robert Pattinson is reacting to girlfriend Kristen Stewart‘s admission of an affair with “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders, but an interview Pattinson gave to the Italian edition of Vanity Fair in April offers some hints. “There’s a thing I’ve never got. That is, why do people cheat?” Pattinson said when asked if he could ever date a married woman. “I can understand the impulse. But not how you can keep two relationships doing at the same time for long.” Pattinson made clear he couldn’t see himself dividing his affections. “I’m not the causal-affair kind of guy,” he said. “If I choose to be with someone, it’s because I really want it. When I have a relationship, I’m 100 percent into it.”

Lindsay Lohan has reportedly been involved in another car accident, according to TMZ. During a shopping trip in West Hollywood, the troubled starlet reportedly rear-ended a silver Mustang that wasn’t moving, causing “minor and cosmetic” damage to the Mustang and Lohan’s Porsche. “We were sitting at a light and somebody hit us,” the driver of the other car tells the Web site, adding that a male companion of Lohan’s left his number with them before they took off to avoid paparazzi.

The Jackson family’s recent dispute seems to be at least partially resolved, as Katherine Jackson has been reunited with her grandchildren. “Grandma’s here!” Paris Jackson, her 14-year-old granddaughter, posted to Twitter. Katherine, who is legal guardian for Paris and her two brothers — children of the late Michael Jackson — was reported missing after she was spirited away to Arizona to rest without her grandchildren being notified. The kids’ cousin, TJ Jackson, was granted temporary custody this week, but now that Katherine is back she intends to regain custody, according to Hollyscoop. “This is creating some havoc that we need to nip in the bud,” her lawyer, Perry Sanders, says. “I intend to get her immediately reinstated as the guardian.”

Christina Aguilera prompted pregnancy rumors after she was spotted leaving a doctor’s office this week with boyfriend Matthew Rutler, but insiders insist to Hollyscoop that the singer and reality show judge is not expecting. Instead, Aguilera was reportedly at the Sherman Oaks Medical Center for a routine checkup relating to an old back injury.

Jeremy Renner doesn’t have the best luck with flights, he tells Jimmy Kimmel during an interview. “A lot of times when I’m on the plane, I have to sleep. And I’m not a good sleeper on the plane,” the “Bourne Legacy” star explains. “I had to fly from London to Los Angeles for dinner, and then get right back on a plane to London. That’s 10 to 12 hours. I had to get off the plane go to work, so I had to sleep on the plane. Somebody gave me some pills, like Ambien. So I took a little sleeping pill, popped it and realized nothing’s happening — but something else was happening!” Renner soon realized he had accidentally taken a Viagra pill instead. “Not only did I not sleep the entire flight, but there was … ‘camping’ … happening,” he says. “The flight attendants were sort of in on the joke. They were like, ‘Can we get you anything, Mr. Renner?’”
