FKA Twigs might have inadvertently dissed new boyfriend Robert Pattinson’s ex-girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, while on-stage.
Twigs is currently on tour across England to promote her album, LP1, which was released back in August. But during her recent concert in Bristol, England, on October 9, it has been alleged that Twigs laughed at some abuse that was thrown Stewart’s way.
According to The Line of Best Fit, during the gig, a fan in the audience emphatically yelled out, “F*** Kristen Stewart,” and when Twiggs heard this remark, she couldn’t help but raise a little smile.
Laurence Day, who covered the concert for the publication, went on to state that Twigs’ reaction wasn’t meant as a diss towards Stewart, and it was in fact just her shock reaction to the comment. In his review he wrote, “[the smile was] not out of anything remotely close to smugness, it must be pointed out, more like the astonishment and disbelief that comes from watching that gung-ho chancer in maths answer back to the dragon of a teacher we all had.”
Hollywood Life also found a Tweet that described the incident too.

However, the individual, who was at the gig heard the abuse directed towards Stewart and then tweeted about it via his @Coupaswaite account, went on to declare that Twigs actually didn’t respond to the declaration.
@marinaloskris she ignored it. Then had a break from singing and told a story about spreading rumours. Girl had class.

Twigs, whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett, is currently doing the rounds to promote her recent album release, and reaction to LP1 has been universally popular. Not only does it possess her two recent singles, “Two Weeks” and “Pendulum,” but she has also started to garner more and more celebrity fans because of her unique sound.
In fact, according to E Online!, Adele made a very rare public appearance at one of FKA Twigs’ concerts last week. The singer, who attended it with her partner, Simon Konecki, went to the show that was being held at London’s Hackney Empire.
However, despite her new beau and tour, things haven’t all been great for Twigs. Since news of her relationship with Pattinson started to emerge, she has in fact received racist tweets, which have even led her to consider moving out of Los Angeles.
