FKA Twigs stepping out without her engagement ring from Robert Pattinson is NOT cause for alarm, despite a speculative report. Gossip Cop can set the record straight.
As Gossip Cop reported, Pattinson was at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday for the world premiere of his new movie, Good Time. He participated in the traditional photo call and press conference with his colleagues during the day. And at night, he donned a tuxedo to walk the red carpet before the big screening.
FKA Twigs accompanied Pattinson to the event, but because she wasn't wearing her engagement, HollywoodLife is now asking, "Trouble in paradise?" The webloid dramatically calls the photos of a ring-less Twigs "shocking," and alleges she caused a "major splash" by going to the premiere without it.
"FKA's bold move to leave her ring at home caused quite the stir," claims the site, which further contends "fans questioned if the pair were on the rocks." After willfully fueling that speculation, however, HollywoodLies starts to back away from that possibility, and instead theorizes the singer-dancer "accidentally forgot" to put the ring on before heading out.
The outlet goes on, "FKA's bare ring finger had to have been a mistake. We mean, just look at the them — Rob had a pleasant grin on his face, and FKA was a vision in a multi-colored gown. We don't think they'd step out for a date night, in Cannes of all places, to cause split speculation. So, we're calling BS on the breakup rumors!"
Uh, then why did you build your story around the possibility of "trouble in paradise"? The publication even flip-flops again at the end of its piece, asking readers, "Do you think FKA's ringless finger is a bad sign?" No, it's a bad sign when HollywoodLies starts running wild with speculation instead of doing actual reporting.
Gossip Cop investigated, however, and we're told Pattison and Twigs' status remains "unchanged." They've been seen together quite a bit lately, and she would not have attended something as significant as the Cannes premiere if their relationship wasn't still on track. Truth be told, Twigs has gone without the ring before, and may do so again. She doesn't always wear it, as is her prerogative. Case closed.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
