Robert Pattinson Joins Girlfriend on Tour
Robert Pattinson is accompanying his singer-song writer girlfriend FKA Twigs on her European tour. Rumors that the two were dating first emerged in September of this year, when the pair was spotted heading to the Bowery Hotel in New York City. However, reports suggest that they had already been together for a month before rumors began to circulate.
“He’s been taking her on dates for the last month or so, and has even flown her out to stay with him in New York. He also loves going to her gigs,” the source told The Sun newspaper, as published on Mirror.
The two are currently in Paris, where they have been photographed walking around the city and shopping at the Marais district.
Their relationship recently came under fire, when “Twilight” fans directed racist tweets at the singer. FKA Twigs, whose real name is Tahlia Barnett, is of Spanish and Jamaican descent.
Twigs hit back by tweeting: “Racism is unacceptable in the real world and it's unacceptable online.”

“Half of my life, I've had people staring at me because they think I'm funny-looking and ugly. The other half of my life, I've had people staring at me because they think I'm fascinating. Everything neutralizes,” added Twigs, as published on People.
The singer has just released her debut album, “LP1,” which was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize.
Pattinson, 28, is best known for playing teenage vampire Edward Cullen in the “Twilight” series and for his off-screen romance with co-star Kristen Stewart. The pair dated for almost four years before they called it quits in 2012, when photos of Stewart kissing film director Rupert Sanders emerged in the media. The actress issued a public apology to Pattinson, calling her fling with Sanders “a lapse in judgment.” Pattinson has since been linked to a number of starlets.
The actor will make an appearance at the New York Film Festival to promote “Maps to the Stars.”
