Robert Pattinson’s Girlfriend FKA Twigs Breaks Silence on Relationship Struggles

0

British singer FKA Twigs struggles with the intense public attention her budding romance with star Robert Pattinson has attracted, branding the invasion of privacy “disgusting”.

The “Video Girl” star, real name Tahliah Barnett, began dating the actor over the summer, and quickly became a target for jealous Twilight fans, who were still holding out hope for Pattinson to reunite with his movie co-star and ex-girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, following their split last year.

The former couple’s diehard devotees bombarded Barnett with nasty messages on Twitter.com in the weeks after the news of the new romance broke, and at the time, she responded to the hate mail by tweeting, “I am genuinely shocked and disgusted at the amount of racism that has been infecting my account the past week. Racism is unacceptable in the real world and it’s unacceptable online.”

FKA Twigs has now opened up further about the unwanted attention focused on her private life, but insists the love and support she has received from Pattinson has made it all worth it.

She tells USA Today, “I really enjoy the fun of putting something out and people liking it or hating it or talking about it, but vacuous attention, it feels disgusting. It’s like a hangover.

“It’s weird, I know that’s not really because of me or what I’m doing, (but) the positivity that I get from (my relationship) makes the more challenging aspects… very worth it.”
