It’s (almost) official: Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs are an item.
The Twilight heartthrob has been dating critical darling FKA Twigs (real name Tahliah Barnett) for weeks now, sources tell Us Weekly.
The British pair was recently snapped in the East village in New York City. According to Us, the twosome bonded over their love for music, with one unnamed source telling the publication, “It’s early [on] but they’re having fun.”
FKA Twigs, an R&B experimentalist who emerged as one of the year’s most strikingly original artists, released her debut album “LP1” Aug. 12 via Young Turks. In an interview with Billboard, she describes her sound in terms like “wizardy synth” or “hi-hat that sounds like you’re running into a wall and as you smash into it, it turns into leaves.”
Pattinson has more than just a fleeting obsession with music. Earlier this year he stopped by “Late Night” to tell Seth Meyers he’d always dreamt of being a rapper and even has a name for the project…Big Tub. Though nothing has seen the light of day, the actor did contribute vocals to “Never Think” and “Let Me Sign,” two songs that appeared on the original Twilight soundtrack. Pattinson was previously linked to actress Dylan Penn and model Imogen Kerr following his well-publicized breakup with Kristen Stewart, who played Joan Jett in the 2010 rock n roll biopic The Runaways.
