Robert Pattinson and rapper FKA Twigs only began dating six short months ago. Six months ago people! But those lovers of teen vampire fan fiction who were hoping it was a flash in the pan before a sparkly reunion with Kristen Stewart just got their dreams crushed. A million hearts have snapped in two because Rob and Twigs are reportedly engaged.
Sorry, Twihards, but this isn’t some tabloid concoction. Rapper T-Pain gave an interview to Vulture and when asked if Twigs would be on his new album, he claimed she’s too busy.
“She’s on tour so much, and anytime I call her, she’s in a different place. And she’s engaged now, so that’s about to be a whole other thing… Yeah, to ol’ Patty [Robert Pattinson]. I don’t know if she wanted anybody to know that…”
Yeah, probably not as T-Pain later claimed his slip was actually an April Fools’ joke. But really, what’s more shocking here — the engagement news or the fact that some people call Rob “Patty?”

Sorry, T, but the damage is done. People not only picked up the story but also confirmed the engagement. That sound you hear is heavy, heartbroken teardrops from every Twihard ever.

In the time it took Robert Pattinson and FKA Twig to meet and get engaged you could have read about half a Twilight book

FKA Twigs and Robert Pattinson are the perfect example of keeping your relationship private without keeping your partner a secret.
