The hookup with Sanders allegedly occurred on July 17th according to the source.
Us Weekly also revealed Tuesday that it’s set to publish photographs of the two in action.
In a recent red carpet interview Sanders boosted Stewart’s many talents:
Stewart’s “got a great spirit, she’s really quite rebellious…and feisty and kind of wild, and that’s really what I wanted the modern Snow White to have.
“I didn’t want her to be timid and I didn’t want her to be frightened and relying on men, you know,” Sanders continued. “She’s very strong and very driven, and I think that’s true in her personal life…She’s got a big weight of the world on her shoulders and she carries it incredibly well.”
Stewart’s camp is in damage-control mode, with a source telling People magazine that she’s “devastated” by her betrayal of Pattinson, her boyfriend of three years.

A rep for Sanders, who is happily married and has two children, could not be reached for comment.
Stewart’s rep had no comment.
The pair met on the first Twilight set and reports began almost immediately that they were a couple.
