T-Pain says that his “musical inspiration”, FKA Twigs, is engaged to Robert Pattinson.
T-Pain suggests that this is an open secret, but FKA may not want anyone else to know.
Vulture (via Page Six) asked T-Pain who he is listening to for inspiration. Perhaps surprisingly, considering how different the style of music is to his own, he said “FKA Twigs, she’s one of my favorite artists right now.” He added, “I’m also super into James Blake right now, and Sampha. A lot of international artists.”
Vulture asked whether FKA might make an appearance on T-Pain’s new album. He recalls their meeting, “Well, the first time we even met each other, we met in the studio.” He explains, “Her music’s changed a lot since then. But she’s on tour so much, and anytime I call her, she’s in a different place.” There are other changes in FKA’s life, since they first met, adds T-Pain. “And she’s engaged now, so that’s about to be a whole other thing. [Laughs.]”
Asked whether he was serious, he insisted, “Yeah, to ol’ Patty [Robert Pattinson]. I don’t know if she wanted anybody to know that ….”
UPDATE 1 April: T-Pain announced on Instagram that it was a joke.
UPDATE 2 April: PEOPLE Magazine insists that the couple really IS engaged. They say, T-Pain is pulling a double-bluff. “Joking”, except that multiple sources tell the magazine FKA and Robert are engaged for real.
Sorry, Twihards: Robert Pattinson is officially off the market. The actor and FKA twigs are engaged after just six months of dating, two sources tell PEOPLE. The couple’s reps are not commenting. PEOPLE confirms the engagement, despite T-Pain’s later Tweet that the slip of tongue was an April Fool’s prank. [PEOPLE]
