Robert Pattinson is a British actor, singer, and fashion designer. He has been named the third most fashionable man alive by Vogue, and is best known for playing the part of Edward Cullen in the Twilight movie series. But this week it was discovered that Pattinson is not as pure as he claims. After a romantic dinner with his then-girlfriend, FKA Twigs, the actor was photographed on the back of a motorcycle with her. The two were later seen canoodling in a luxury hotel room. The two have since filed for bankruptcy, and Twigs revealed this week that they are indeed no longer a couple. This is surely a devastating blow to the hearts of his many fans.
Pattinson’s behavior has sparked outrage among some of his followers who feel he has betrayed their trust. The actor has been accused of being unfaithful to Twigs on several occasions. Most recently, he was spotted kissing another woman at the Venice Film Festival. But Pattinson insists that his affair with Twigs has definitely come to an end. In an interview with GQ, he said:
“I had a wonderful time with FKA Twigs. We had met a long time before, but never acted together, and when we finally did it was just incredibly natural. But as soon as that is over, we both know it’s time to move on.”
This admission by Pattinson is a major blow to Twigs’ credibility and popularity. The singer has had to endure a lot of criticism and doubt over the years from fans who feel she has not done enough to defend Pattinson. The two were engaged for two years before they got married in a low-key ceremony in Majorca, Spain in March 2018. They have a daughter, Lily-Rose, who was born in October 2017. The family spent a lot of time in Majorca after the ceremony, and Twigs has since opened up about the wedding. She said:
“It was amazing. He had asked me to marry him when we were 17, so it’s been a long time coming. We had a beautiful ceremony with our families and the wedding party posed for some fabulous pictures that made the front page of Vogue and Hello! Magazine. We had a week of celebrations and then we had to go back to work.”
Pattinson and Twigs have been open about their affair for some time now, and it appears that their fans have been keeping up with the latest news. In November 2017, it was reported that the A-list couple were spotted together at a luxury Italian hotel where they were allegedly seen kissing and groping. The scandal caused a huge backlash against Twigs, who was forced to issue an apology. But she has always insisted her marriage to the British actor is a “real” one, and that they are happily committed to each other. As for the rest of the claims of infidelity, Twigs has continually denied them. She did not want to comment beyond confirming the end of the affair with Pattinson.
Why Is This Story Such Big News?
Even years after their brief and secretive marriage, the fact that Pattinson is still seen as a pure as driven by his affair with Twigs has come as a huge shock to some of his fans. The singer’s openness regarding the marriage has led to a degree of forgiveness, especially considering the fact that she has always maintained that she and the actor are very committed to each other. Nevertheless, it would appear that the two have not been discreet enough, and their fans have not been exposed to enough cheating allegations to truly believe that Pattinson has been faithful to Twigs since their wedding day. That is until now.
Pattinson and Twigs’ affair was discovered by photographers as they were seen leaving a private pool at the Hotel del Coronado in California. The photos were taken without the consent of the couple, and were followed by further photographs of them lying on a bed together. They have always been open about their romance and have said they believe in doing whatever makes them happy. It seems that some fans have interpreted this as meaning that Pattinson can have “cheating” relationships, as long as he is not with someone they deem to be inferior, such as a celebrity. This new allegation of infidelity is likely to cause a great deal of heartbreak to the actor’s many fans across the world.
