You’re About to Feel Really Bad for Robert Pattinson’s Fiancee
When Robert Pattinson first went public with his relationship with British singer/songwriter Tahliah Debrett Barnett (better known by her stage name FKA twigs), not all of his fans took it too well, mainly because they still hoped he would rekindle his romance with Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart. They called the “Glass & Patron” crooner extremely hurtful and derogatory terms (which we’re not going to publish due to their explicitly racist nature), to which she responded in September 2014, “I am genuinely shocked and disgusted at the amount of racism that has been infecting my account the past week Racism is unacceptable in the real world and it’s unacceptable online.”
Fortunately, the now-27-year-old did not let it affect her relationship with the now-29-year-old actor. In fact, T-Pain accidentally let it slip that the two got engaged in his interview with Vulture, which was published on April 1. While he tried to play off the slip like an April Fool’s joke, FKA twigs confirmed that she’s tapped to get hitched to RPattz in her Complex magazine interview.
For the publication’s June/July 2015 cover spread, she brushed off T-Pain’s error, “It’s fine, I’m a pretty chill person, do you know what I mean?”
But that doesn’t mean she still wasn’t/isn’t hurt by the hateful remarks, “I wouldn’t say I’m completely numb to it now, but there’s definitely a numbness there… It is pretty horrible. But ultimately, I’m in an amazing relationship. So it doesn’t matter.”
To all involved in the animosity, you should feel really bad right about now.
