A story about Robert Pattinson‘s reaction to FKA Twigs‘s romance with Shia LaBeouf is made-up. The article was clearly manufactured to capitalize on the latest news of LaBeouf’s divorce from Mia Goth and subsequent relationship with Pattinson’s ex-fiancee. But the quotations in the report from a so-called “source” are so provably false, it’s obvious the entire tale is fabricated.
The claim comes from HollywoodLife, a site so well known for concocting phony articles that it’s often referred to as HollywoodLies. In its latest highly suspect story, the blog quotes an alleged “insider” as saying Pattinson isn’t the jealous type, and “if FKA is with anyone he only hopes that she is happy.” “Rob is a 32-year-old man who has his priorities and emotions in check,” adds the same seemingly fake “source,” who inexplicably brings up the actor’s age in the middle of the quotation.
While the outlet’s first “source” knows Pattinson as “Rob,” the second one tells HollywoodLies that “Robert moved on quite some time ago” from FKA Twigs. Then exposing how completely bogus its article is, the second supposed insider claims, following his split from his fiancee, Pattinson was “hooking up” with Katy Perry earlier this year. It notes in bizarrely unnatural language that he took her to “several local spots in Echo Park where he lives and loves to hangout.” But as Gossip Cop has previously reported, Pattinson and Perry have never even been seen kissing, and they most assuredly have never dated. Not only did her rep tell us on the record they’ve never had a romantic relationship, but Perry herself has said she’s like a “big sister” to Pattinson and that they “just hang out.”
Here is what’s going on. On Monday, the Daily Mail reported that LaBeouf is dating FKA Twigs. That’s when HollywoodLies used it’s tried-and-(un)true formula of taking news broken by other outlets and manufacturing a new angle to add to it. In this case, the repeatedly discredited blog threw Pattinson’s supposed reaction into the mix because of the news about FKA Twigs.
But it’s clear the site’s supposed insiders know nothing about the British actor because it didn’t mention one word about how Pattinson and Goth star together in the movie High Life. And last year, Gossip Cop busted HollywoodLies when it manufactured an article that absurdly alleged Pattinson and Goth had gotten “cozy” and were possibly dating because they were photographed hanging out off the set. Interestingly, much like how the current report makes no mention of Goth and Pattinson’s professional connection, its 2017 story about them getting “cozy” neglected to note she was married then to LaBeouf. Unlike Gossip Cop, which sticks to the facts, HollywoodLife often publishes fiction about Pattinson.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
