Is R-Patz engaged or not? Friend says announcement was a fake


The Twilight fandom went into meltdown earlier this week with the news that Robert Pattinson had gotten engaged to his musician girlfriend FKA Twigs.

The pair have been dating since last autumn, and just last week rapper T-Pain seemed to spill the news that Robert had indeed popped the question. 

Speaking about FKA during an interview with Vulture, T-Pain said: "She's engaged now… Yeah, to ol' Patty."

Hours later, he denied the news was true, taking to his personal Twitter account to say, "Added a little #AprilFools to my interview with @vulture today! #CheckMeOut." To make things as clear as possible and really cover his tracks, he even added a picture of a wedding and engagement ring.

However with multiple anonymous sources now confirming to both E! and People that the news is in fact true, it seems R-Patz really is off the market. Hold us.

Neither Robert or FKA's reps have confirmed the news, but it does seem likely that they are engaged given that they exchanged "promise rings" back in December, with Robert telling friends at the time that he wanted to marry his new lady.

As for Robert's ex Kristen Stewart, we doubt she'll be happy that she had to find out the news through T-Pain's slip-up. According to Hollywood Life, Robert did have plans to break the news to her in person but he didn't get there in time.

"Rob had planned to tell Kristen when he got back to the states, where he is now,” an insider reportedly said. “He wanted to meet up with her in LA and tell her the news about his engagement first hand, but as we all know that never happened because Faheem [T-Pain] blabbed. He wasn’t happy that Kristen had to find out in such an impersonal way.”

We're sure she'll survive!
