Robert Pattinson is not being told by his friends that he’s “smothering” FKA Twigs, despite a completely made-up story. Gossip Cop can exclusively report the claim is 100 percent not true.

The story was first floated by RadarOnline, which wrote that pals of Pattinson have urged him to “slow down” with FKA Twigs because he’s “smothering her.” The webloid then has a so-called insider say that Pattinson has a “tendency to go overboard,” and that he ultimately “pushes girls away.” None of that is true. He’s not suffocating FKA Twigs in their relationship nor have his friends implied that.

Remember, RadarOnline is the same site that once inaccurately reported that Pattinson and Kristen Stewart had an “open relationship.” On the subject of Stewart, the webloid goes on to quote its supposed source as saying that even though Pattinson is seeing someone else now, he’s “still broken up over Kristen.” Actually, as difficult as their split was, both stars of the Twilight franchise have maturely moved on with their lives.

RadarOnline’s alleged source further says, as opposed to when he was with Stewart, Pattinson and FKA Twigs would “rather stay inside with just the two of them than go out and have cameras follow their every move.” So much is wrong here. For starters, Pattinson and Stewart actually didn’t go out a lot, and they most assuredly did not seek out the glare of the paparazzi. And now with FKA Twigs, while the two certainly do not want to be hounded by photographers, Pattinson and his gal pal have surprisingly been far more openly affectionate in public than he was with previous girlfriends.

Bottom line: RadarOnline is wrong about Pattinson “smothering” FKA Twigs and just about every other claim concerning her, as well as his past relationship with Kristen Stewart.
