I hate to be the bearer of Twihard tragedy, but Robert Pattinson is officially off the market after getting engaged to his musician belle, FKA twigs.

FKA twigs (real name Tahliah Barnett) and Robert Pattinson have been an item for around six months and the pair were first snapped cozying up together at the tail end of August 2014.

T-Pain first broke the news to Vulture magazine after letting it slip that it might be hard to work with FKA twigs on his new album due to the singer's busy touring schedule and the fact that:

"She’s engaged now, so that’s about to be a whole other thing."

When Vulture told the 29-year old singer and rapper that was news to them, he went on to say:

"Yeah, to ol’ Patty [Robert Pattinson]. I don’t know if she wanted anybody to know that …"

After his gaffe, T-Pain went on to claim that his slip of the tongue was an April fools joke, but nobody seemed convinced by the star's valiant attempt at backtracking.

People magazine has since gone on to confirm the engagement and claim that a British source told them that the pair have "exchanged promise rings" and that:

"He wants to marry her. They are inseparable when they are together. They live at his house."

While all of this might sound quite dubious, the photos we have seen of FKA twigs and Pattinson make it hard to deny that this couple are deeply in love.

Also, as unlikely as it may seem, the November interview with twigs below confirms that this London hipster angel is indeed close friends with "Uncle T-Pain" of 'I'm On A Boat' fame.

Neither of the happy couple has made a public comment on the alleged engagement, and considering their desire for privacy within their relationship, I wouldn't expect one anytime soon.

All I can say is that I hope this is true, because I love these guys together!


Do you think Robert Pattinson is really engaged to FKA twigs?
