Rob — I know that you’re madly and passionately in love with FKA Twigs and have put Kristen completely in your past, but it would have been wonderful if you could have given her a heads up that you were engaged.
Robert Pattinson, we want to offer you and your new fiancee, FKA Twigs, the warmest congratulations on your engagement. But there is someone who you once loved, who is hurting right now, according to our HollywoodLife.com sources — and that’s Kristen Stewart.
Robert Pattinson & FKA Twigs Engaged — Should Have Told Kristen Stewart
You have totally moved on with your life since your split from Kristen and have found your true soulmate in Tahliah Debrett Barnett, who you started seeing in August 2014.
And Kristen, 24, has built herself a new and very full life too, full of friends and career success. Nevertheless, you still held a very special place in her heart after your four years together as a couple, and even longer as co-stars in five hugely successful Twilight films.
She knows that it was ultimately her mistake — getting involved with married Snow White producer Rupert Sanders — that broke you two apart, according to our sources, and she deeply regrets that betrayal. But she still had hopes that one day you two might reconnect.
When she found out on April 1 through the media that you were engaged, she was shocked. “When Kristen first heard that Rob and FKA Twigs were engaged, she was devastated,” an insider close to Kristen told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
She didn’t want to believe that it was true and she was desperately hoping that it was an April Fool’s joke, revealed the insider.
Robert Pattinson’s Engagement To FKA Twigs — Rapper T-Pain Spilled The Beans
The rapper T-Pain accidentally revealed the engagement in an interview which he did with Vulture and which was published on April 1. The news of your engagement “really stings for Kristen,” said the source. “After only five months of dating, she can’t believe that Rob, 28, would put a ring on it with FKA…Kristen is really hurt because marriage is something she obviously spoke with Rob about when they were dating because they were together for so long. There was a point where she definitely wanted to marry Rob,” explains the source.
Now, Rob, you may feel that two years have passed since you and Kristen made your final split and that you had no reason or obligation to call her and give her a heads up about your happy news.
“He didn’t reach out to her and tell her. That ship has sailed. He doesn’t talk to her. They have two completely 100% different lives. She is not part of his day at all. FKA is his life now,” another insider close to you, told us exclusively at HollywoodLife.com.
OK, Rob, I get it. Kristen is your past and FKA, 27, is your future. And I sense a little hostility towards Kristen still. That’s understandable. She put you through tremendous heartache and public embarrassment. But she’s been through heartbreak too and deep regret. She only wishes you the very best.
Rob Pattinson Engaged: He Should Have Broke The News To Kristen Himself
For all the many good times you did share together, it would have been an above and beyond gesture. I’m sure she would have deeply appreciated a short phone call from you letting her in on your news.
It wouldn’t have really been what she wanted to hear, but it would have been so much better to hear it from you.
Do you agree, HollywoodLifers? Should Rob have called Kristen to tell her his engagement news himself? Let me know.
