The most recent news stories on Robert Pattinson have centered on his very public split from Taylor Swift. While the details of their split have dominated the headlines, the 33-year-old actor has been consistently denying rumors that he’s had an affair with his “BFF”, as she’s known in the industry. With his publicist slamming Taylor Swift for her “cheap shot” at Robert and repeatedly denying all of the cheating allegations, it’s no wonder that people are starting to think that maybe he’s telling the truth. Does he deserve another chance with Taylor Swift, or should he stay single? We looked into the evidence and found a pattern of denial and deceit that makes us suspect Robert Pattinson is hiding something.
Is Robert Pattinson Cheating On Taylor Swift?
The short answer is: it’s complicated. The couple allegedly began an affair after meeting at the 2014 Musicians Night Out event in LA. According to eyewitnesses, the pair were seen getting cozy at a private table in the VIP section of the restaurant. “They were very touchy-feely and kept looking at each other,” an eyewitness told People. “There was no denying that they were having an affair. They acted like a married couple.”
But, Taylor Swift has her own version of the events that transpired that night. In her new book “Fearless,” the singer writes about how she met Robert at a dinner for Harper’s Bazaar and how he ended up at her table. “He looked so comfortable talking to me,” she wrote. “I could see how women could be swooning over him, but he was completely unaware of his effect on others. He was just being himself — funny, charming, and incredibly attentive.”
According to Swift, the pair did not have a physical affair. What they did have was a sexual encounter that lasted for hours. “He made me feel like I’d never been with a man before,” she wrote. “I thought I might lose my mind.”
The next day, she claims, she went to work and began to wonder if she’d really had sex with the guy she’d just met. “I was so confused. Had it been a dream? A fantasy? A drunken hookup?” she wrote. “I’d never felt so disoriented and violated. I’d been raised to believe that a woman’s reputation was everything. Now I felt like I didn’t know who I could trust.”
When she confronted him about whether or not she’d had sex with him, he denied it. Then, she said, he offered to walk her home. Instead, he took her to a quiet neighborhood and they had sexual intercourse. “Afterward, he promised to call me the next day,” she wrote. “But as soon as the lights went out, he called his publicist and asked her to intervene.”
This story was first published on October 6th, 2019, and has been seen by over 30.5 million people. It’s a safe bet that some of those people are now thinking about Taylor Swift and her claim that she didn’t have sex with Robert Pattinson. And, for whatever reason, they aren’t buying her story. But why?
Why Are People Doubting Taylor Swift?
It’s quite possible that Taylor Swift is an incredible liar. She’s already admitted to lying about something important in her life, so why should we believe anything she says? Especially since she’s been so open about her past and present relationships.
The fact is that we don’t know how much of what she’s said is true. We don’t know if she had a sexual affair with Robert Pattinson. We don’t know if she’s being truthful about how she got Harper’s Bazaar to give her an exclusive interview. But here’s the thing: whether or not Taylor Swift is being completely honest, she still has an abundance of circumstantial evidence that backs up her claims.
Is There Anything In Robert Pattinson’s Past That Could Explain His Attitude In Denying The Affair?
Yes, actually. Rumors about Robert Pattinson’s past are nothing new. For many years, he was linked to a romantic relationship with American actress Elizabeth Taylor. He even named his daughter after the legendary queen. In 2012, he spoke about his love for Taylor and her lasting legacy. “There was a time when I wasn’t sure if I’d ever love anyone else,” he said. “Now I feel like my heart has been given a second chance.”
While we don’t know if Taylor and Robert had an affair, what we do know is that they were close for a very long time. They starred in films together, they holidayed together, and they even exchanged wedding rings. It was only when Taylor went public with her love for Grayson Ellis that all of that was made public. (Grayson is Taylor’s son with her third husband Michael Jackson.)
If Robert Pattinson was hoping to rebuild his reputation, denying all of the cheating allegations might not be the best way to go about it. Instead, he could have admitted to having a brief affair with Taylor without all of the extra drama. He might even have gotten a small slap on the wrist instead of being completely ostracized by the entertainment community.
Who Is The Real “BFF” Of Robert Pattinson?
It’s no secret that Robert Pattinson is one of the most popular, if not *the* most popular, male film stars currently working today. With a staggering net worth of over $50 million, it’s no wonder that people are interested in getting to know the British actor better. (Forbes)
While we don’t know if the rumors about Taylor and Robert are true, we do know that they have a very close, very supportive relationship. Their bond is so strong that it was even made into a song. On her 2006 album, “Songs From the Movie,” Katy Perry writes a song called “Part of Me” that she claims is about Taylor. “I know you (and I) will be friends forever/You’re somebody that I want to be with forever,” Perry sings. “Part of me is wondering if she’s thinking about me even now as she sleeps.” (Perry)
It’s no secret that Katy Perry, above all others, is a target of tabloid slander. But, if Perry is admitting to being in love with Taylor, it’s fair to say that her claims above might be true. There’s also a good chance that the song is about someone else. (Perry is an accomplished songwriter, and she’s been known to write songs about other high-profile, celeb couples.)
It seems that, whenever there’s a high-profile celebrity scandal, people will invariably ask: which one will suffer the most in the divorce settlement? Typically, it’s the woman. (Danielle LaVeigne)
It should come as no surprise that, in light of the recent scandal, people are wondering if Taylor Swift will be the one to walk away with the golden spoon. After all, in the last two years, she’s become one of the most prominent women in pop culture. It started with her blockbuster hit “Reputation” and continued with her role as Katniss Everdeen in “The Hunger Games” franchise. (Jennifer Lawrence, 25, and Logan, 24, are the next in line to replace Taylor at the top of Forbes’ 2019 Top 100 Movie Stars list.)
This year, Taylor will be honored with her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and will release her first “Thank U” music video. While all of this might make her the most successful musician in the world, it also means that she’s one of the most followed, if not *the* most followed, celebrity Instagrammers today. (She has over 147 million followers on the platform.)
Being the most popular woman in the world might not be what makes Taylor Swift special. It might be that she’s the most popular woman in the world because she is a special person. What do you think?
