At the age of 17, Twilight star Robert Pattinson was in love with The Girl Next Door (same neighborhood). Her name was Nina Schubert, and she was 20. The pair ended up being together for 3 years before deciding to go their separate ways to pursue their own careers. While Robert was working to make it as an actor, Nina was was working as a model. A source told the American tabloid the National Enquirer that Nina was Rob's first love, and she hasn't been able to get over him.
Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson is sharing his new-found fortune with his former school pal, commissioning her to create art for him to display in his dream home. The Brit has yet to find his Hollywood estate, but he knows how to decorate it when he does - with paintings by New Zealand-based artist Nina Schubert. The pair grew up together in Barnes, England, attended the same school and briefly dated, and Pattinson kept in touch with the 26-year-old artist when she moved away. At one time, Robert even stayed at her apartment when in London.
