Robert Pattinson ‘splits from fiance FKA twigs’

Robert Pattison and FKA twigs have reportedly split, just three months after the actor claimed they were ‘kind of’ betrothed.

The couple began dating in in September 2014 and are said to have got engaged just seven months later, although the pair refused to explicitly confirm or deny the reports. 

Twilight star Robert, 31, is now said to have called an end to their romance as he ‘grew tired’ by the fact they had been ‘drifting apart’.  


A source close to the couple told The Sun: ‘In recent months they have really started to drift apart and have been spending less and less time together. 

‘Rob is tired of it, has called off their engagement and told friends they have split. With so much ­history between them, though, there are still strong feelings there.

‘It’s a difficult situation but things have become tough between them for some time and they both know they were no longer working as a couple.’

The pair have not been pictured together since May 2017, and last month, FKA twigs – real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett – was seen without her distinctive engagement ring as she sat front row at the Christopher Kane London Fashion Week show.

Fans also spotted that FKA was not wearing the ring on August 1, which immediately prompted questions about a break-up from observers.

At the start of August, the Twilight star was pictured dining at the Sunset Towers Hotel’s rooftop restaurant with his ex Katy Perry.

Robert and Katy have faced rumours of romance since the very beginning of their friendship back in 2012.

Katy’s assured folks the pair are completely platonic more than a few times in the past, telling Elle UK ‘He’s my bud, I’m like his big sister’ while even revealing she ‘farts’ in front of the heartthrob back in 2013.

Just weeks before that, the British actor said that he was ‘kind of engaged’ to girlfriend FKA during an interview with Howard Stern.

You’re engaged, right?” Stern pressed during an interview on his SiriusXM show, to which Robert replied: ‘Yeah, kind of.’
