If you forgot that Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs were engaged, we don't blame you. Although the former Twilight star and the British artist announced their engagement in April of 2015, there's been little news in terms of the two actually tying the knot or even planning their wedding. There has however been a plethora of breakup rumors surrounding the pair. And now, unfortunately, it sounds like the gossip is true. The news just broke that Pattinson and FKA Twigs's upcoming nuptials have allegedly been canceled by the groom. (For real this time, apparently.)
Rumors that the couple was splitting have been swirling since the summer of 2015 when a source first told In Touch Weekly that the nearly-weds were calling it quits. "They were fighting all the time," said the source, stating that the wedding planning process was a "major drag" for Pattinson. (Cue us playing him the world's smallest violin.)
While that story proved to be false, speculation over the future of the couple's relationship didn't stop there. Things definitely sounded shaky back in August of this year when, during an interview with Howard Stern, Pattinson danced around his answer when asked if he and FKA Twigs were still engaged. "Yeah, kind of," he said. Well, that certainly doesn't sound promising…
And alas, it sounds like Pattinson has allegedly ended his engagement to the singer/songwriter.
A source close to the couple divulged the news to Page Six, stating, "They were almost inseparable for their first two years together. But in recent months they have really started to drift apart and have been spending less and less time together."
"Rob is tired of it, has called off their engagement and told friends they have split," continued the insider. "With so much history between them, though, there are still strong feelings there. It’s a difficult situation but things have become tough between them for some time and they both know they were no longer working as a couple."
And there you have it, folks. R.I.P. the Engagement of FKA Twigs and That Vampire From Twilight, 2015-2017.
