OK, before you slump over and drown your sorrows in a tub of ice cream, hear us out!

According to emerging reports, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson did break up on Saturday after being together for nearly three years, but apparently this is not a permanent breakup.

What does that mean? Good question! While we normies are accustomed to the durability of an ended relationship (not all of us, mind you), celebrities are not. The Twilight co-stars have allegedly split due to differing "priorities" but are hoping to sort things out later down the road.

Per E! News, the couple will even continue living in the same house! So, come on. This is clearly temporary.

"They are going to stay living at Kristen's house because of the dogs," a source told E!. "It's not fully over, or he would have moved out."

Was Kristen Stewart dropped from the Snow White sequel? >>

Stewart and Pattinson previously broke up when the former was caught cheating with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, but they'd since reunited.

They can do it! These two lovebirds just need some time, that's all! What do you think? Is this the real thing or only temporary?
