Are Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs engaged? There is some understandable confusion after T-Pain said they were at the end of a long, unrelated conversation with Vulture on Wednesday. It turned out to be an April Fools’ Day joke… at least according to T-Pain. But it’s not clear whether it was an actual joke or if he just played it off as a joke because he didn’t realize he was breaking news.

The performer and producer seemingly (and casually) dropped a bombshell at the end of his interview, saying Pattinson and Twigs were set to marry, but he later took it back with a tweet: “Added a little #AprilFools to my interview with @vulture today!” He included a picture of two rings to indicate which part of his interview had been intended as a joke. So what did T-Pain originally say to set the Internet on fire?

When he was asked about his current musical inspirations, T-Pain replied, “FKA Twigs, she’s one of my favorite artists right now. I’m also super into James Blake right now, and Sampha. A lot of international artists.”

When the interviewer asked whether Twigs will be on T-Pain’s new album, he responded, “Well, the first time we even met each other, we met in the studio. Her music’s changed a lot since then. But she’s on tour so much, and anytime I call her, she’s in a different place. And she’s engaged now, so that’s about to be a whole other thing.” The interviewer pressed, “Wait, she’s engaged?” to which T-Pain claimed, “Yeah, to ol’ Patty [Robert Pattinson]. I don’t know if she wanted anybody to know that.”

Because the outlet noted T-Pain had laughed when he revealed the “engagement,” and especially given the April 1 publication date, some people thought there could be some April Fools’ Day-related mischief here. And that could be the case. But People later reported that it had been “confirmed” Twigs and Pattinson were engaged, and that it was NOT a joke. Gossip Cop will have updates.
