We’ve all been there. You’re minding your business, taking a stroll down the beach, when you step on a shell. Suddenly, you’re face to face with a creature of great beauty and intelligence, desperately in need of rescue. What would you do? Would you help her? Would you fight for your happiness? Would you compromise and settle for second best? Or, would you simply walk away, leaving her to fend for herself? That’s what happened to Robert Pattinson, and he’s finally answered these questions.

He Found Her

Many of you may remember the sad story of Robert Pattinson dating FKA Twigs. Well, at least you can rekindle those feelings of sadness and loss because the 25-year-old actor finally found the love of his life. While on a walk along the picturesque Japanese coast, the actress, Kaori Iwayo, also known as FKA Twigs, spontaneously approached Pattinson and asked for his help. She needed a place to stay, and he gladly obliged, inviting her to stay at his home. Little did he know that she had ulterior motives. The self-proclaimed ‘queen of darkness’ had disguised herself as a member of the public to get a closeup look at the heart-breaking storybook prince.

He’s Finally Found His Harmony

“For a while, there was this beautiful girl following me around, trying to get a peek at the action,” he told the New York Times about the encounter with Iwayo. “But then she introduced herself, and I realized she was actually a famous musician. So I politely asked her to leave and called the police. The truth is, there were never any complaints from that street before.”

Pattinson’s life had been turned upside down. First, his mother, Debbie, passed away from pancreatic cancer, followed by his father, Chuck, who committed suicide a few months later. Then, his best friend and manager, Adam Levine, left him a message on his phone one night, revealing that he’d been secretly engaged to Iwayo for some time. After that, everything changed. He began working harder, going on tour with Taylor Swift, and eventually, won the hearts of fans around the world with his portrayal of vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise. As if the world didn’t have enough problems, this is yet another example of the heartbreak that comes with liking a movie star.

What Is She Doing About Money?

Pattinson’s generosity wasn’t a one-off. He’s been extraordinarily kind to animals and children, supporting several charities and purchasing a vegan restaurant in London. This is why, when Iwayo told him she had no money and needed something to eat, he bought her an entire steak. She even thanked him for the present, using the opportunity to teach him a little bit about Japanese culture.

However, when it came to the more practical matters of their relationship, things were a little bit more complicated. “She kept asking me for money, and I didn’t have any. She would say she needs to eat and I would give her some rice or pasta. It wasn’t until a couple months into the project that I realized she was essentially asking me for money to buy jewelry and makeup. It was at that point that I decided I couldn’t keep doing this,” he said.

Here Comes The Wedding March

On May 24, 2019, Entertainment Tonight reported that Pattinson would wed Iwayo in a lavish ceremony in Japan. The news was followed by a wave of happy emojis from fans across the globe.

The wedding will take place on May 24 at the Aoi Pavilion in Kyoto. Iwayo will walk down the aisle towards her groom-to-be while singing her wedding song, a duet with John Legend. Guests will help Pattinson in creating a memorable ceremony while also celebrating the beauty and talent of Iwayo.

Pattinson has kept relatively quiet about the wedding, only releasing a few brief Instagram posts from inside the wedding planning process. One of the most touching moments came during an interview with Joe Zee, when he wept openly, revealing how nervous he was about how his friends and family would react to the news. He wanted them to be surprised but also to feel happy for him.

“The thing is, I never thought this was going to happen. I never thought I would meet someone that I would actually want to spend my life with. And now that it has, I just don’t know what to do,” he said.

The wedding will be a celebration of opposites attracting. Pattinson is the romantic lead in the film, while Iwayo plays his dream girl, an independent, feisty musician who doesn’t need a man to complete her. It’s the union of two strong, independent spirits who refuse to be defined by their relationship status.

The wedding will be followed by a honeymoon that includes stops in Italy and France. While there’s no information yet on where or when the wedding cake will be served, it’s safe to assume that it won’t be vegan.
