Robert Pattinson did not hint at “relationship trouble” with FKA Twigs in his interview with Howard Stern last week, despite a report that both sensationalizes and mischaracterizes the actor’s remarks. Gossip Cop has the truth.

As we reported on Tuesday, when asked by Stern on his Sirius XM show, “You’re engaged, right?” Pattinson said, “Yeah, kind of.” Celeb Dirty Laundry, however, claims the actor’s reply “only fuels the rumors that there’s something amiss in the relationship, because responding ‘kind of’ invites more questions than a simple ‘yes, we’re engaged’ would have.” The website adds that Pattinson’s response “seems to hint more at trouble in the relationship.”

But it’s not true. Pattinson even clarified in the interview with Stern that as a rule he doesn’t like to talk about his relationships because his fans, particularly those of the Twilight films, overanalyze and sometimes even manufacture false scenarios about his love life. Pattinson, who has been engaged to FKA Twigs since 2015, told Stern, “It’s one of the most frustrating things in the world” that he can’t fully go public with his romance. “You kind of get stuck in this position where you have to make decisions whether you want to let the kind of crazy people in,” he continued, noting that Twilight fans can act like “a crack troop of crazies who think every single decision you’re making is creating some kind of conspiracy.”

“I want to create a big boundary between it. But then it makes it difficult for your actual relationship,” Pattinson admitted. He added that “professional trolls” on the web often make comments that “cause hurt and pain,” and “it might seem fake to them, but it’s definitely real in your life.” That said, contrary to CDL’s phony premise about the actor hinting at “relationship trouble,” during Pattinson’s interview with Stern about FKA Twigs, he called his fiancee “super talented” and “amazing.”

This is hardly the first made-up story CDL has published about Pattinson and FKA Twigs. Among its many inaccurate articles that Gossip Cop has busted was an absurd tale about how Pattinson’s family feared he’d dump FKA Twigs for Kirsten Stewart. That was completely untrue, and so is the claim that he hinted at “relationship trouble” with her during his interview with Stern.
