July 27, 2012 — -- Robert Pattinson has reportedly moved out of the home he shares with Kristen Stewart following her announcement that she cheated on him with film director Rupert Sanders.

Pattinson, 26, packed up and left the California home that he shares with his "Twilight" co-star 22-year-old Stewart, his girlfriend of three years, on Thursday, according to People magazine.

Photos of a cargo van in the driveway of the couple's L.A. home were published online Thursday. Earlier this week, US Weekly published photos of Stewart fooling around behind Pattinson's back with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders.

Stewart apologized Wednesday to Pattinson for her affair with 41-year-old Sanders, a married father of two.

"I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected," she said in a statement to People. "This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry."

Sanders also issued an apology to People.

"I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family," he said. "My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together."

A somber-looking Stewart was photographed in Los Angeles just two days after the paparazzi captured her kissing Sanders on July 17.

Pattinson, 26, and Stewart, 22, fueled the frenzy over the "Twilight" movie series with their real-life romance. The two never publicly confirmed that they're a couple, but they've become increasingly open about their relationship, kissing in public and being photographed while on dates.

Fans of the mega franchise are taking new news hard, releasing sobbing YouTube videos and even death threats over Twitter. One die-hard fan tweeted, "If it's true that Kristen Stewart has cheated on Robert Pattinson I will personally kill her..."

"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," the final film in the "Twilight" franchise is scheduled to be released in the U.S. on November 16.
