Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson will reportedly spend time with Kristen Stewart for Christmas.

"He's supposed to go home to London for Christmas, but Stewart wants him to stay with her here. He's torn," a source close to the couple told Life and Style magazine.

His family, however, is terrified that this could seal their reunion.

"They can't stand Kristen; his family is terrified that he will never get away from her. They think she's bad news, but there's something about Kristen that he just can't resist," the source added.

Of late, there has been a lot of speculation about Pattinson and Stewart's relationship status. The pair were spotted together on several occasions and much has been said about their reunion.

Reports suggest that the two of them are causally hooking up and it is just a fling. That might also explain why Pattinson is keeping it away from the spotlight. According to sources close to the couple, they are not interested in a long-term relationship. It was also reported that Stewart was getting insecure as Pattinson was keeping their relationship under wraps.

"Kristen doesn't want to keep her relationship with Rob a secret anymore. She doesn't want to have to sneak around whenever she sees Rob - it makes her feel like she's doing something wrong and she's not," sources said.

"Kristen wants to go public with her relationship with Rob. She wants to go to concerts and other places with him, like they used to," the source added.

Reports suggest that the couple checked into a hotel in Palm Springs, California, for a few nights in order to spend some quality time together.

''They snuck away to one of their favourite hide-outs for a couple of nights. Both left their houses in LA under cover of darkness and Rob brought their two dogs as well. They're not back together yet but they desperately miss each other," a source told The Sun.

''Kristen still loves him and the ball is in his court. She drives him crazy but at the same time he can't seem to break things off,'' the source added.
