The Twilight actress admitted this week she has cheated on boyfriend Robert Pattinson.

Lady Gaga has sent a message of support to troubled couple Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson while hitting out at the media for targeting them about their private life.

The Twilight couple hit the headlines this week after Kristen Stewart and her Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders were rumoured to be having an affair.

The allegations forced Kristen to release a statement confirming the rumours were true, while expressing "hurt and disappointment" at her actions, and 'Born This Way' singer Lady Gaga posed a message saying the press treatment of her had been "brutal".

"Geez this kirstew rob stuff is brutal," Gaga tweeted yesterday (25th July. "Makes me sad the way press acts."

She added: "Hope they're ok."

The 'You & I' star's Twitter message to celebrity couple Kristen and Robert has so far been tweeted well over 10,000 times since it was posted.

In her statement Breaking Dawn star Kristen said she felt "deeply sorry" for hurting the people she loved over her brief fling with the married director.

"I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've cause to those close to me and everyone this has affected," Kristen's statement reads. "This momentary indiscretion has jeopardised 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."

Last week Lady Gaga treated several of her Little Monsters by playing them a brand new song from her car, following which footage was later posted online. 

She is currently in New York City where she was recently pictured out for dinner with oft-rumoured boyfriend Taylor Kinney, best known for starring on The Vampire Diaries.

Lady Gaga will kick off the next leg of her 'Born This Way Ball' world tour on 14th August in Sofia, Bulgaria in Europe.
