Sources tell People magazine and several other news outlets that “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson and British singer FKA Twigs are engaged.
Sigh. Seems like just yesterday that he was dating his “Twilight” co-star Kristen Stewart.
Pattinson and FKA have only dated for about six months.
Rapper T-Pain seemed to let the cat out of the bag in an interview with Vulture.

“She’s one of my favorite artists right now,” the rapper said. “The first time we even met each other, we met in the studio. 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. And she’s engaged now, so that’s about to be a whole other thing.”
He said she might not be part of his new album because “she’s engaged now ... to ol’ Patty (Pattinson). I don’t know if she wanted anybody to know that.”
After the slip, sources confirmed the news to People, though reps for the couple are not commenting.
The New York Post’s Page Six also confirmed the news, reporting that the two secretly got engaged in January. Said one friend: “They are very much in love. She helped him stop drinking and partying. He is really happy and they are inseparable.”
T-Pain rushed to do damage control, calling his alleged slip of the lip an April Fool’s joke.
Nudge nudge, wink wink?
