Kristen Stewart NOT Dating Alicia Cargile

Kristen Stewart is not dating Alicia Cargile. The old, debunked rumor was resuscitated by paparazzi site X17Online, an outlet that has repeatedly gotten stories about Stewart wrong.
“Is Kristen Stewart Dating A Girl?” asks the webloid, along with a picture of the two women… walking with coffees. Oooh! Scandalous!
Because X17Online has absolutely nothing to go on besides a picture of two friends carrying coffee, it refers to a quote attributed to Stewart in the recent Vanity Fair France:
“[My] true personal life, as much as people think they know about it, they don’t know d*ck sh*t… Who could? By the way nobody knows. Nobody knows what the f*ck is going on. You’re going to die. You’re going to lay next to the people that you know the most in life, the people that you’re going to grow old with. But you’re going to lay next to them in the middle of the night deeply curious about them and who they are, because nobody f*cking knows anything.”
“We’re not sure what that means, but some folks have this theory that the Twilight babe is dating Alicia and that’s what she’s referencing in the quote,” explains X17Online.
Um, X17Online could have stopped at “we’re not sure what that means.” Given its track record, X17Online could stop lots of stories at “we’re not sure what it means.”
X17Online then proves it has no clue what’s going on by asking readers whether Stewart is “dating” Cargile, or whether the Vanity Fair quote is about something else entirely. Attention X17Online: You’re supposed to do the work — not your readers.
A ton of our readers sent Gossip Cop the X17Online story, asking whether it’s valid. It’s not.
Stewart was not dating Cargile, and she’s still not dating Cargile. A source close to the situation tells us the recurring rumor is “totally untrue.”
