Kristen Stewart Mom Interviewer Stands By Alicia Cargile Girlfriend Quotes, Vows To Release Audio Tapes of Interview
Sharon Feinstein, the journalist who quoted Kristen Stewart’s mom as confirming a supposed relationship with Alicia Cargile, says she stands by the quotes, even as Jules Stewart denies ever calling Cargile her daughter’s “girlfriend.”
As Gossip Cop reported, in an interview published by the Mirror, Jules was quoted as saying, “I’ve met Kristen’s new girlfriend, I like her. What’s not to accept? She’s a lovely girl.” Other quotes included, “What’s not to be accepting about her now having a girlfriend? She’s happy,” and “I accept my daughter loves women and men.”
Unlike a number of outlets, Gossip Cop held off on immediately picking up the story, choosing instead to investigate the veracity of the quotes. On Monday, we were told that while Jules did indeed speak to Feinstein, she never confirmed any romance with Cargile, or said she was Stewart’s “girlfriend.” Jules acknowledges they spoke about LBGT rights, and that she called Cargile a “lovely girl” when asked about her. But she insists there was no discussion of Stewart’s love life.
Feinstein, however, says she accurately reported their conversation, and has audio of the interview to back it up, claiming “every word is on tape.” “I intend to load my tape of the interview I did with Kristen Stewart’s mother Jules in two clips. Watch this space,” she tweeted Monday evening. Feinstein went on, “When someone has spoken to a journalist in good faith it isn’t fair to blatantly deny it and call the journalists integrity into question.”
“I will be uploading the tapes to fly the flag for journalists and their integrity everywhere and stop this ubiquitous hatred and denigration of them and endless taking them to task,” continued the London-based writer. She went on to admit she needed “technical help” to upload the audio, but insisted “all will be revealed.”
Feinstein added, “Thanks to all believers in journalists and their integrity and decency! Let’s turn the tide against the haters!!” Gossip Cop will have updates.
