FKA twigs Details 'Horrific' Racist Abuse from Ex Robert Pattinson's Fans

FKA twigs is sharing some rare insight into her relationship with Robert Pattinson.

During her appearance on Grounded with Louis Theroux podcast, the 33-year-old entertainer revealed the “horrific” treatment she received from the 34-year-old actor’s fans when they were dating.

If you didn’t know, FKA twigs and Rob started dating in 2014 and got engaged in 2015. They split in 2017.

“People just called me the most hurtful and ignorant and horrible names on the planet,” FKA twigs explained. “He was their white Prince Charming, and they considered he should be with someone white and blond.”

She continued, “It’s essentially bullying, and it does affect you psychologically. It was really deeply horrific, and I think it was at a time where I felt like I couldn’t really talk about it. I feel like if I was going through it now, I would be able to talk about it and do some good with it. But I don’t know whether it was to do with my age or because of the social climate or being Black and from Cheltenham and from a low-income family and having to genuinely work twice as hard at everything I do to get a seat at the table.”

FKA twigs went on to say that the comments were just mean-spirited, but they were also deeply racist.

“Say if I was wearing a red dress, they would have a monkey in a red dress, or I was on a bike, they would find a monkey on a bike,” FKA twigs recalled.

At the time, FKA twigs said the comments really affected her confidence, but over time she has learned to ignore the haters and love herself.

“But just for everyone to know, I now love how I look and I’m very confident,” FKA twigs said.

Also in the interview, FKA twigs opened up about the alleged abuse she experienced at the hands of ex Shia LaBeouf.
