FKA Twigs was not “miserable” with Robert Pattinson at the Cannes Film Festival, despite a poorly-substantiated claim. Gossip Cop is told the story is both “silly” and “wrong.”

As Gossip Cop reported, Pattinson went to Cannes for the world premiere of his latest movie, Good Time. FKA Twigs joined him for the film’s prestige screening on Thursday night. Photos of Twigs not wearing her engagement ring at the event prompted the likes of HollywoodLife to falsely speculate there was “trouble in paradise.”

Now Celeb Dirty Laundry is also using a photos to suggest the couple is having problems. “FKA Twigs Looks Miserable With Robert Pattinson At Cannes Film Festival,” declares the headline. In the article, the site asserts “the couple didn’t look as happy as they are reported to be,” and claims “it’s been months since fans have seen FKA Twigs and Robert Pattinson together.”

That assertion is subjective and that claim is patently untrue. Pattinson and Twigs have been seen out together multiple times just this month. The webloid even acknowledges at the end of its half-baked story that they stepped out for his birthday, noting they were “seen hugging and kissing each other.” If the outlet can’t get its facts straight on whether or not Pattinson and Twigs have been seen together, why should it be trusted with the rest of its concocted story? It shouldn’t be, of course.

And CDL goes on to contradictorily contend Twigs and Pattinson were “glowing,” but she “struggled to smile.” As evidence, the online publication features pictures in which the dancer-singer is indeed not smiling. In the snapshots, though, she is very clearly walking and, understandably, watching to see where’s she going as cameras snap away. Surely if Twigs had a grin plastered on her face, she’d be accused of acting fake for a publicity stunt.

In either case, she can’t win. She’s either miserable, as claimed here, or disingenuous. But there’s an in-between, as reality shows not everyone smiles all the time. Twigs is not “miserable” at Cannes with Pattinson. In fact, she joined him for a big dinner aboard a yacht on Friday night. As intrusive paparazzi used long-lenses to take photos during the meal, Twigs was photographed (gasp!) smiling.

Was she grinning in every single candid shot? Of course not. No one ever is. But Celeb Dirty Laundry made the calculated decision to pick non-smiling photos from Thursday to claim Twigs is “miserable.” Such a move is not only “silly,” but also “wrong,” Gossip Cop is told. Of course, this isn’t’ the first time CDL has tried to stir the spot. Heck, a year and a half ago the webloid wanted readers to believe Pattinson was about to break up with Twigs. All the while, they remain together and the site remains off-base. It’s time to stop living in fantasy land.
