You may have heard that Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs are an item, and now you may have convinced yourself that this is so. The pair have spent a lot of time together in the press and social media, and even though they have both spoken out and denied the reports, it’s hard to deny that they seem to enjoy each other’s company. Still, is this romance real? Let’s examine the facts.

First Dates And Media Attention

Forbes has ranked the Top 30 celebrity hookups of all time, and Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs are tied for second place. They were together for a whole year, from 2016 to 2017, which makes them tied for second place. They started dating after she appeared on the cover of Vogue, and their romance was thrust into the public eye when they were photographed kissing on a French Riviera terrace in July 2017. Since then, they’ve been inseparable, and their social media accounts are filled with romantic outings and passionate PDA. The pair have also been immortalized in wax, with statues of them in the Hollywood Memorial Walk of Fame. All of this sounds very romantic, but it’s important to keep facts in mind.

Denials And Spinning

The pair’s publicist has repeatedly denied the rumors of a romance, and her denials certainly seem to be convincing. In a 2018 interview with Billboard, she said, “There is no truth to this rumor. Not only has Robert not spoken to or texted any member of the media in years, but he has also been very private since his wife’s tragic passing. This is a complete fabrication and an insult to his memory.” She went on to say that the publicist does not work for them, and they have no idea where this rumor came from. Unfortunately, these sorts of denials only ever serve to raise more questions than they answer. The denials simply confirm all of the suspicions of those who believe there’s something going on between them. Why else would they be so keen to debunk the story?

Gang Signs And Triangles

There are so many signs and symbols that foreshadow a triangle or an alliance, and it would be foolish not to notice them. As we’ve established, the pair are seemingly inseparable and have taken their relationship public. They have also been photographed together with other women, which further fuels the speculation that there’s something going on between them. They also share a very unique hand sign, as evidenced by the photo above. It’s known as a CeeJay sign, named after one of the girls they’re flanked by in the iconic selfie.

Pair Bonding

It would be a shame to deny that these two enjoy each other’s company. They’ve been paired up in a lot of ways – from collaborating on a song for Taylor Swift’s album – to being photographed holding hands. It’s almost as if they’re a couple of high school kids who barely know how to behave in adult society, and it’s charming. We should all strive to be more childish sometimes. It makes us less robotic and more human.

The Rumored Reason For The Breakup

If you ask us, there’s really only one plausible explanation for why Robert and FKA might have broken up. It’s pretty heartbreaking, actually. Let’s examine the facts. In 2017, she released a song called “Make Your Bedroom Your Prison.” It’s a song about self-worth and independence, which is pretty poignant given her life story. The problem is that this song was a goodbye to the world. In it, she sings, “I’m taking back my freedom/ I’m sorry I couldn’t give it to you.” Then, she proceeds to tell the world that she’s sorry, and that they’ll never be what they was, before the song’s dramatic guitar break. This is probably the song that sealed the end of their relationship. If anything, it’s made their relationship all the more compelling. But regardless, the song is a beautiful, emotional expression of grief and regret, which is more than can be said for most breakup songs. It also made her one of the most controversial and talked-about artists in music today. But that’s a topic for another day.

What Now?

So you may have convinced yourself that Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs are an item. But now what? Is this a bad thing? A good thing? A thing you’ll eventually get over? Take a deep breath. Like with any new romance, you’ll have your ups and downs. But ultimately, you’ll learn to love them both the same.
