Robert Pattinson and Katy Perry are not "heating up" as his relationship with FKA Twigs supposedly "cools off," despite an inaccurate report. Gossip Cop can exclusively clear up the situation.
A new article posted on E! is questioning the status of the actor's relationship with his fiancee after he was spotted dining with Perry and a group of other friends at the Sunset Tower in Los Angeles on Saturday. A source tells the site that Pattinson and FKA Twigs are "basically over" and "Rob already feels single." The alleged insider continues, "It's not long until the split will be public," adding, "No one really understood what he saw in FKA." As Gossip Cop reported, Pattinson said on the "Howard Stern Show" last month that he's "kind of" engaged to FKA Twigs, which the outlet's tipster claims was the actor's way of saying "the relationship has been fizzling out.
As for Pattinson's relationship with Perry, the outlet's source states, "They aren't serious as of now, but Rob has always had an interest in Katy." Additionally, a seemingly unreliable "onlooker" at the Sunset Tower also claims the pair was "flirting" and "extremely affectionate" throughout the meal, adding, "They looked like they were dating... He definitely wasn't acting engaged, and there was no mention of FKA Twigs the entire dinner. Everyone assumed Katy and Robert were together."
A few things need to be mentioned. First, no one who's close Pattinson or FKA Twigs, who's real name is Tahliah Barnett, would refer to her as just "FKA." Also, it's a little odd that someone, who was an "onlooker" at the restaurant, would know "there was no mention of FKA Twigs the entire dinner" unless he or she was hiding on the table behind a salt or pepper shaker. As a result of those red flags and other factual inaccuracies, Gossip Cop looked into the website's claims, and we're exclusively told the story is almost entirely incorrect.
A source close to the situation assures us Pattinson and FKA Twigs are still together. While our insider was not at liberty to comment on the intensity of their relationship, and certainly can't predict the future, we're told the couple is not secretly broken up, as hinted by E!. We're also assured that the actor is still "just good friends" with Perry and the two weren't "flirting" and acting "extremely affectionate" or like a couple at dinner. In fact, Gossip Cop already clarified over the weekend that Pattinson and Perry are not dating after TMZ wrongly speculated the two longtime pals are hooking up. Once again, the actor's relationship with Perry remains platonic, and he's still engaged to FKA Twigs.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
