Robert Pattinson is reportedly engaged to girlfriend of six months FKA Twigs. The actor and the singer began dating last year and talks of marriage have been following the pair for months.
According to Hollywood Life, Pattinson’s former longtime girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, is heartbroken over the engagement news, and can’t believe Rob would get engaged so quickly when he never popped the question to her after dating for years.
“When Kristen first heard that Rob and FKA Twigs are engaged, she felt devastated. She doesn’t want to believe it’s true and was seriously hoping that this was just some sort of April Fool’s joke.”
Unfortunately for KStew, it doesn’t seem to be an April Fool’s Day joke, and it looks like Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs are engaged and will be planning a wedding in the near future.
“After only five months of dating, she can’t believe Rob would propose to FKA. She and Rob dated for years! Hearing this has really taken a blow to Kristen’s confidence. She was holding out major hope that there wasn’t any truth to their engagement.”
It seems that Stewart is hurt by the engagement bombshell because there was a time when she believed she would be Pattinson’s wife.
“Kristen is especially hurt to hear that Rob is engaged to FKA because marriage is something she obviously spoke about with Rob when they were dating. Of course they did, they were together for so long! There was a point where she definitely wanted to marry Rob and she would hate to see him do that with another girl. She knows it’s her fault she never got to marry Rob, but still hearing that he’s engaged still really stings.”
As fans may remember, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart met on the set of Twilight and began dating shortly after, but mostly hid their relationship from the world. However, after going public, the pair were rocked by scandal as Kristen was photographed cheating on Rob with her married director, Rupert Sanders.
Stewart publicly apologized to Pattinson and the two reconciled for a short time. However, they officially called it quits a few months later.
People Magazine reports that Robert Pattinson being engaged to FKA Twigs hasn’t surprised his friends. The couple reportedly live together at Pattinson’s home and have become “inseparable.”
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, this may not be the best time for Pattinson to begin a new married life as rumors have been flying that he’s spent all of his Twilight money and is actually going broke. While there is no evidence to support these claims, fans have noticed a lack of RPattz on the big screen over the past couple of years.
