Robert Pattinson says Donald Trump’s tweets about him five years ago were “bizarre.” He discussed those and a few tall tales he’s told in a new interview.

Pattinson was recently asked about the 11 tweets Trump posted in 2012, following the revelation that Kristen Stewart had cheated on him and that they two broke up. The actor called it “weird,” but then said the President seemingly just deleted a number of Twitter messages, including the ones about him. Pattinson told The Daily Beast, “I did notice… I think today or yesterday… in one of his Twitter cleanups that he deleted all those tweets! I was like, ‘Hey, are you trying to sweep me under the rug, man? What happened? I’m a part of your life!’” He added, “I just saw the thing and thought, ‘Why did I get cleaned up?’ It’s such a bizarre curiosity.”

In reality, however, Trump has not deleted his tweets about Pattinson. Between October and November 2012, the now-president repeatedly expressed his very pro-Pattinson stance and anti-Stewart view. He wrote, for example, “Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart. She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again–just watch. He can do much better!” That was followed up by another missive that read, “Everyone knows I am right that Robert Pattinson should dump Kristen Stewart. In a couple of years, he will thank me. Be smart, Robert.” And almost five years to the date before winning the White House, Trump shared on Twitter, “After Friday’s Twilight release, I hope Robert Pattinson will not be seen in public with Kristen–she will cheat on him again!”

As Gossip Cop reported, when Kristen Stewart hosted “SNL” last February, she said she was “nervous” because she knew the president was watching and expressed, “I don’t think he likes me very much.” She then mocked Trump’s apparent obsession on Twitter with Pattinson. Stewart told the audience that she was under the impression, at first, that the real estate mogul “hated me” for straying, but then she came to realize the president’s actually just “in love” with Pattinson.

As noted above, Trump’s 2012 tweets about Pattinson are still on his Twitter feed. The actor was just bending the truth. He admitted that he tends to do that a bit, especially while being interviewed on TV. As Gossip Cop exclusively reported in August, Pattinson told us his masturbating a dog story on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” was untrue and simply a joke. He also has confessed that a tale he uttered on the “Today” show about seeing a circus car explode and kill a clown when he was a kid was similarly a fib. Pattinson explained his odd habit by saying stars generally only have 10 minutes on a talk show and feel compelled “to say something funny.”
