Is Rob Pattinson and FKA Twigs back together? Well, almost. The pair is yet to confirm their romantic status, but they are already making it clear that their alleged split is not permanent. As fans of both celebs may know, they spent nearly a year apart after Pattinson split from Bella Thorne. Now that the 27-year-old actor is dating A-list beauty Amala Harris, they’re determined to make it work, and that’s what their fans want to hear. Here’s a breakdown of the latest rumours.
They’re Still Together.
While numerous media outlets reported that Pattinson and Twigs had split for good, the actor has continued to tweet and instagram about her, sometimes even passionately kissing the camera emoji. Last month, he even dedicated a song to her, ‘Goodbye My Lover’, which he performed solo. The song was added to his YouTube channel after his manager Eric Basset removed it upon discovering that the track was about Twigs. “I truly, deeply love @fkatwigs and would not let this video go down,” Basset later tweeted.
Pattinson Is Not Dating Other Women.
Pattinson’s manager once again stepped in to protect his client’s reputation, tweeting: “It’s great to see @fkatwigs happy and healthy. She’s a special person and a great friend to me. However, it’s important to note that Rob isn’t dating other women. He cherishes his time with @Amala_Harris and wants to continue to focus on her.”
Pattinson Is Bringing Amala To London.
While many people associate a trip to London with luxury and fame, for Pattinson, it’s a chance to spend some quality one-on-one time with his amour au lion. Amala is currently in London working on the thriller She-Devil. The film, which also stars Nicole Kidman, documents the true crime story of con artist Sarah Roberts. Following the premiere of She-Devil on February 2, Pattinson and Kidman were spotted exiting a London hotel holding hands and looking very affectionate. It’s the latest in a series of public displays of PDA since his split from Thorne.
They’re Trying To Maintain Their Professional Relationship.
Even though their on-screen romance has been cancelled, the duo has reportedly decided to continue working together professionally. “They’re still friends, they love each other and they want to make it work. They’ve both been hurt and they know how to protect each other now,” an insider told Hollywood Life on February 6.
Unfortunately for Twigs, Pattinson is not the only A-list celebrity she’s had to compete for attention with. On January 17, just a day after the premiere of Dark Water, another film in which she starred, the singer/songwriter released her latest album GIRL, an album that features several collaborations with prominent artists. The record was greeted with positivity from fans and media alike, but it’s clear that Pattinson’s success may have turned some heads.
Pattinson Isn’t The Only Man She’s Dating.
If you thought that Pattinson’s dating history was limited to Bella Thorne and Twigs, think again. The 27-year-old actor has actually been seeing a revolving door of beautiful women since dating his current co-star from Twilight, Amala Harris. As we’ve mentioned, he’s dedicated a song to Twigs, and he’s also opened up about his relationships with Harris and Thorne. During an interview with the New York Times in 2016, the Hollywood Reporter wrote: “He has also been dating [Harris] for a while. The two met while working on Gangster Squad and have since collaborated on several projects, including the title song for Harris’ latest film, Beautiful People, which she also produced.”
Pattinson’s Dating History
Pattinson first came to prominence as the boy next door in the Twilight series. He played Edward Cullen, Bella’s loving and caring ex-fiancé who becomes her vampire husband. While the movies were a global phenomenon, they weren’t exactly a runaway success in North America. In 2016, Deadline reported that the Twilight films had a cumulative box office gross of $15.8 billion, which makes it the fifth highest-grossing series of all time. In total, the films have earned more than $30 billion worldwide.
However, since the Twilight films, Pattinson has had a steady stream of high-profile roles. He’s currently on the TV series The Deuce and recurring on the Netflix series, Dancer.
Is Twigs Going To Be In Trouble?
It’s not often that we see a celebrity tabloid scandalised by a break-up. However, that’s exactly what happened when Bella Thorne’s split from Pattinson was made public in 2016. Several publications wrote about the scandal, with the Daily Mail dubbing it “The Edward and Bella Breakdown”. In tabloid speak, a “scandalised” publication can expect to see a big boost in circulation and a noticeable uptick in web traffic. While Thorne’s reputation may have been damaged by the media frenzy, her career actually benefited.
Now that Pattinson is no longer “Bella’s Edward”, will Twigs be in trouble? Unlikely. The actress has maintained a relatively low profile since the breakup, so she hasn’t had to worry about her personal life being publicised. While she did make cameos in several of Netflix’s other awards-winning series – including The Kominsky Method and Dark – she’s largely stayed out of the limelight. It’s not like she hasn’t kept busy, though. She released her second album, Illmatic, in September 2018 and has since embarked on a cross-country tour in support of the release. She’s also become a fashion icon, gracing the covers of several of Vogue’s biggest issues and walking the runway for some of the biggest designers. In August 2019, Twigs was also named to the Time 100, an annual list of the most influential people in the world. She was one of three fashion designers featured on the list (the other two were Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs).
With the exception of a few minor comebacks (her 2017 song “Slow”), Twigs has largely stayed off-screen since the breakup. While her career hasn’t been affected, it’s clear that the spotlight has shifted to Pattinson, whose profile has notably risen. In 2019, Forbes listed him at number seven on their list of the world’s most powerful celebrities, with an estimated net worth of $250 million. In 2020, he was ranked number sixty-three on the list of the world’s most influential individuals, according to Forbes.
In order to maintain his star status, Pattinson may have to continue courting controversy. While he did make headlines for coming out as gay in 2019, his sexuality has rarely been discussed in the media since the scandalous split from Thorne. It’s not like he hasn’t courted controversy – he was arrested in Paris in 2014 for urinating in public and faced domestic violence allegations in 2018. Still, Twigs is the one who got away, and it appears that they’re both learning to live with their new status quo.
