That Awkward Moment When Kristen Stewart’s GF Dated Robert Pattinson First
Kristen Stewart and her girlfriend, 30-year-old French singer-songwriter Stéphanie Sokolinski (better known by her stage name, Soko), have been making their rounds, engaging in multiple sessions of PDA everywhere, from Paris to Los Angeles. So, naturally, everyone’s creeping on KStew’s new love, looking up old photos and unearthing past interviews. And guess what they found out: years before dating Kristen, Soko actually dated Robert Pattinson!
That’s right, sometime surrounding Robsten’s 4-year (on-again-off-again) relationship, which spanned 2009-2013, the British Twilight star hit it off — for one night, at least — with his former co-star/ex-girlfriend’s new lady. In a 2015 interview, Soko said that a dream inspired her to move to LA rather than NY, which led to her short-term involvement with RPattz. “Yeah, it was the best thing ever,” she exclaimed. “Three nights in, I went out and met a girl who was like, ‘Hey, I like your music, I work for a label and we would love to sign you. Where are you staying, do you need a place to stay?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah I do.’ That same night, I had a blind date with Robert Pattinson!” Some people have all the luck, we guess.
But don’t worry about this old news ruining the relationship between Soko and the 25-year-old star. In a more recent interview with W magazine, the French musician said, “I’m very, very, very in love and very happy in a relationship, so I don’t have that urge [to stray].”
