Is FKA Twigs trying to gold-dig her way into Robert Pattinson’s money?


FKA Twigs and Robert Pattinson have been together since late summer/early fall 2014. They seemed to go from “casually dating” to “very serious” very quickly. I’m pretty sure that when they’re in LA, she lives with him at his place. And maybe when they’re in London, they stay at her place? Perhaps. Mostly, they’re on the road together. He was following her around as she toured, and then they would take little mini-breaks together in Paris and Miami and Toronto, wherever. I’ve always liked them as a couple – she makes Rob seem cooler and together, they’re easily one of my favorite new couples. But what if there’s trouble in paradise? What if… there’s some money problem?

In the hugely popular Twilight series, Robert Pattinson’s character is a blood-sucking vampire, but in real life, friends close to the 28-year-old hunk reveal to exclusively that his girlfriend, FKA Twigs, who recently revealed that she was ‘in love’ with Pattinson, could be sucking him dry – of money that is!

“Robert and FKA twigs are living like A-listers on a C-listers salary,” a close friend of Pattinson says. “He has always lived large and spends money like there is no end, but the truth of the matter is that his fortune is shrinking because he is no longer a franchise star.”

OK! Magazine reported that Pattinson is running low on funds because “his spending habits are the same as when he was earning big bucks, so there’s a real shortfall.”

However, the insider tells Radar that his girlfriend, FKA Twigs, 27, whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett may also be to blame.

“Rob is not working right now because he is so focused on her. He insists on paying for everything because that is the kind of guy that Rob is,” the source says.

According to the insider, “FKA is not a dumb girl and she knows how to work men and has even been called a gold-digger by people who know her. Although they both spoil each other, but she has pennies compared to the kind of money he has.”

[From Radar]

First of all, is Rob running out of money? I doubt it. He tucked away a significant chunk of change during the Twilight years. Granted, I doubt he has a lot of money coming in these days, because he’s been doing so many indie films, although I’m sure the Dior campaign pays handsomely and supplements his indie-film habit. Now, that being said, it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that he’s bad with money. But it’s not like he’s blowing his money on expensive real estate or anything – he’s spending it on clothes and hotels and going out to eat. Which is no big deal when he’s got millions of dollars.

As for the FKA Twigs thing… I just don’t see that for her. Yes, I think he probably spoils her and yes, I bet he is the kind of guy who wants to pay for everything. But that just makes him a good boyfriend! That doesn’t make her a golddigger. Everything that I’ve seen indicates that Twigs genuinely loves Sparkles. Twigs + Sparkles 4 Eva.

    Ugh, this woman is very talented and doing just fine on her own, she doesn’t need his money 😒

    • mimif says:

      Yeah, these kind of narratives are so lame.

    • FLORC says:

      Gisele doesn’t need Tom’s money, but it’s all she spends. She tucks hers away and his is the only money spent.
      Just because she’s wealthy doesn’t mean she would live off of another.

      On this couple though idk.

      • BangersandMash says:

        Miss Gisele Bunchen is probably one of those traditional types. ‘You’re a man… provide damn it!!’

        and while I can say that both Gisele and Twigs are the prizes in their relationships, or in the very least, the more interesting ones in their relationships. I doubt Twigs gets down like that. She most certainly doesn’t have Sparkle money, but I’m sure she’s not stressing about how to get into his wallet.

      • Hudson Girl says:

        FLORC, I think you are right about Gisele and Tom spending his money. I thought it had something to do with his ex Bridget and establishing his cost of living and her going after high amounts for child support payments? He adores his kid, he just didn’t want to pay for an actress’ lifestyle which is where work is inconsistant (even for A listers).
        Although, with her steady work on Bluebloods, rumors are that she has calmed down and is happier now.

      • Bridget says:

        FLORC – for someone who’s such a stickler for sources I’m surprised you keep coming back to that Tom and Giselle story… which originated from Star Magazine.

    • PunkyMomma says:

      I’m not buying it. He’s got millions of Twilight dollars, and so what? It’s his money, spend away, ✨Sparkles✨

  2. MBP says:

    If he’s spending cash he doesn’t have then that’s pretty much his problem… She’s hardly taking his money and doing a Lohan-esque round of parties and drugs and god knows what (well, at least not that I’ve seen).

  3. Skins says:

    Twigs must make some pretty good money on her own. Not sure what he made from the Twilight thing, but I doubt he is going broke any time soon

  4. Fibonacci says:

    This story originally from OK mag is utter bullsh*t. It was sent to them by a Butthurt Stewart fan who bragged about it on Twitter. Then it was picked up by the drone outlets like Extra, Radar, etc. Hollywood Reporter (THR) did an article about the richest performers in the UK recently and Rob was listed as no:3 only behind One direction and Daniel Radcliffe. And b4 u ask, Yes! I’m a Rob fan and I can’t wait for his 2 films in Berlinale ;D

    • Anname says:

      Yes, Hollywood Reporter said he was worth $82 million in October 2014. OK Magazine seems to think he blew it all in 3 months if he is broke now. It must have been all those trips to American Apparel, to support his white t-shirt habit.

      And here is what the screenshot from twitter said, which explains how this story started, if anyone is interested, it’s all sorts of crazy-

      …”I’m glad OK ran the story but I’m PO’ed that they ran that one instead of the many others we sent. They coulda went with the drug story for him, or even better, the affair with the married producer for his trash girlfriend. “…..”We just gotta keep sending them in. Those b_tches will regret the day they started messing with kristen mark”.

      • Gina says:

        Stewart’s fans are on a mission to trash Sparkles as a revenge for her downfall after that affair with a married director. Somehow they found a way to put the blame on him and they hate him with passion now.

      • Diana B says:

        That’s just so digusting. These people are nutjubs. Also, isn’t he famous for being pretty much a bum in terms of anything in his life? He has said he only spends money on guitars so I doubt he’s going broke anytime soon.

      • Anname says:

        Gina, I agree.
        Of course not every Twilight and/or Kristen fan is going to like him, or choose to follow his career – fine, move on then and just follow Kristen. But this kind of stuff is just bizarre.

      • Leona says:

        I must live a very insulated life, I never see these things that people say are rampant on the internet. Am I to believe that Kristen has a significant fanbase. Or that they still care about these two. She looks so ridiculously cute with her girlfriend plus her career is doing so much better than her co-stars on Twilight. Her career is exactly where she wanted it, now that she is doing indies with awards cred. And Rob is positively besotted with Twigs. I imagine them sitting on a rag on the floor, incense burning in the background, while Rob just strokes her face, occasionally leaning in to lick it. I want the damn sex tape.

        I would think this worked out perfectly for all concerned. In fact every site I have been on reflects that. Where are these love haters lurking at?

      • Janet says:

        Stewart’s fans are batsh*t crazy. They will never forgive Pattinson for dumping her, especially for a black woman. The racist comments some of them make about FKA Twigs are absolutely nauseating.

      • Gina says:

        To Leona: if you’re on twitter and you’re following a bunch of KStew’s fans, no way you don’t see pure hatred spewing toward Rob and, mostly, Twigs. All these “gold-digging” stories come from her fans first and foremost. They paint Robert as some lost soul seduced by a voluptuous woman with the help of drugs and voodoo (!). They claim she’s doing it for his money and career boost and they literally send these stories to mags. And Kristen’s career is not what it used to be and what she wants it to be, there was a time she was in consideration for every studio movie, but now she’s not, she’s trying to get it back on track with the help of her PR team planting articles with praise from her co-stars and seeking fashion deals for her for some positive association with respectable brands, there’s nothing bad in it, but there’s not what an indie girl would do, imo

      • lamamu says:

        Gina, Stewart needs to hire whoever rehabbed Sienna Miller’s career. That person is a genius.

    • notlistening says:

      I don´t doubt one little bit, that this were it is comming from. Stewart fans are just downright insane.

  5. Miran says:

    Agreed. What he’s spending versus what he probably put away during Twilight, he’s not hurting. If he wants to pay, exactly, that makes him a good boyfriend, doesn’t mean shes a gold digger.

  6. kri says:

    Oh, god. Yes, let’s trot out the “she’s taking all of his money” crap. I would hope that he has tons after all the twilight business. If he is bad at money, that’s his fault-she’s got nothing to do with that. Stupid.

  7. jinni says:

    Wait, so he was spending money like crazy before her according to this source, so how is it her fault he is wasting his money? Is it because now he’s spending money on her that he would have originally spent on his friends and now they have a problem with his spending habits? Because I’m not seeing how she’s scheming to take or use him for his money.

    Also, those hotels and dinners, especially if they are at high end restaurants and if he usually picks up the tab for everyone, can get pretty pricey so I don’t think it’s that hard to see how he could be burning through that money quickly with that sort of lifestyle and without a large steady income coming in.

    • Anname says:

      Let’s think about the interest alone, if he has (conservatively) say $50 million banked. I think he can afford some pricey dinners and hotel bills.

  8. SpookySpooks says:

    There is something about her that rubs me the wrong way, I really really dislike her, but I doubt she’s with him his money.

    • Susiecue says:

      Yeah she seems really pretentious and arrogant

    • Moffa says:

      Agreed. I can’t get on board with her, but this narrative is a stretch. She isn’t making crazy, franchise money, but she’s not hurting in the tiniest bit either.

    • charlie says:

      Me too. I find her so pretentious, plus, I usually dislike singers whose music is overpowered by the performance itself.

    • **sighs** says:

      Me too. I don’t think she’s with him for the money. I think she’s with him for the fame and the boost in her name.
      Edit: I think she probably really is into him, but I do think she enjoys the limelight, too. She talks about him way too much.

      • Anname says:

        That’s actually not true – she has been asked about him many times, but has only given a comment twice. Both times she has basically said he is worth the hassle. She hasn’t made any other comments at all. Almost all of the Rob mentions in twigs articles are coming from the journalist, not twigs. She isn’t in control of that.

      • Mi says:

        Like @Anname says,Twigs is asked by journalists about Rob,she doesn’t control the media.I hope the journalists will stop asking her about him because she’s getting so much hate from robsten stans that’s disgustins.The journalists just want the drama.

    • Lola says:

      Absolutely. She has the whole “I’m so talented that I dislike fame” attitude.

  9. Deidra says:

    She’s been working like crazy on her tour, directing and releasing videos in between tour stops. Even if he pays for something (because he wants to do it for her and he can afford it!), I don’t see her reveling in luxury at his expense, she’s a hard worker with her own career.

    • Mi says:

      This.Tabloids as always want to make women look like etheir greedy persons or sl#ts who are nobodies without their men.She’s working on her position for years and she is the one responsible for her success.

  10. Gill says:

    This strikes me as total rubbish. He has piles of cash, is still earning from Dior and the indie movies he is making with good directors (in particular, he won’t starve working for David Cronenburg), and she is going to be a megastar.

  11. Gina says:

    If he wants to spend all his money on a woman he loves, it’s his right, who are we to judge… I don’t believe the story anyway

  12. OhDear says:


    I’m now waiting for the “fka Twigs and Kristin Stewart” are feuding stories, though some tabloid has probably run with that narrative already.

  13. I Choose Me says:

    Got an eye ache now from rolling my eyes so hard. I really like FKA and Rob together and hope they go the distance.

    • Angela says:


    • Angela says:

      Sparkles seems to be trying to live more mature life, buying designer clothes, decorating his house and going on vacations with his girlfriend. Good for him, what’s the point in having millions when all you do is hanging out in hipster bars, wearing old dirty clothes and playing guitar with your drinking buddies. You go, Rob!

  14. Jess says:

    This sounds pretty ridiculous, there’s just no way to blow that kind of money in just a few months! Does he even own a house?! Plus I saw him on a late night talk show talking about how he buys a lot of stuff from Craigslist, even an old beat up truck, doesn’t seem like a lavish lifestyle at all. Without a doubt this was some mentally unstable Kristen fan who put this out there, FKA works her as* off, not like she’s just living off him. It’s just crazy that people have the time to dream this crap up, it’s kinda scary actually.

  15. Susiecue says:

    Aww just cause she lets him pay doesn’t make her a gold digger, especially if he “insists”.

  16. MoeC23 says:

    I just don’t get her appeal or his for that matter!

    • Maggi says:

      She’s very talented. I love ‘two weeks’. She looks like Matt Damon’s wife in the face (before his wife changed her face).

  17. Div says:

    Meh. All the Twilight actors are insanely wealthy, so I doubt it. Plus, they seem like the real deal. Plus, everything from Radar tends to be sexist BS and this is just another fake story in line with their m.o.

    That said, every time there is a negative RPattz or KStew story blaming it on some insane fans on Twitter is ridic—they aren’t the only stars who have some nut job Stans. I sort of like both (although I never even thought they were together and both clearly have separate lives & KStew seems to have a girlfriend herself IMO). and this generalizations that all their fans or people who like them are crazy is annoying. I’m sure the tabs know it’s BS but they create it because they see an audience for this crap IMO…not because of some moronic Twitter rumors but because of the amount of their notorious dumb Stan wars between a select group of Stans. The tabloids pander to the insane twihards for hits, hence the “KStew pining for Sparkles/feuding with FKA Twigs” narrative or the FKA Twigs is a villain thing. All this people live their own lives and have clearly moved on, so it’s weird that a lot of the Twi hards can’t accept that.

  18. Veronica says:

    There is no reality in which I think FKA Twigs needs to be a gold digger. He is the beige in that pairing, not her. If anything, he’s made more interesting by that partnership, not her.

  19. Dana says:

    I’m always astounded by fans who are convinced they just “know” what a celebrity is doing. This goes both ways.

    How do you “know” whether or not this woman has pure intentions? Her music? Her style? Her interviews? She is just as much a part of pop culture as any other celebrity. Pop culture is manufactured. Her image is calculated.

    Believe what you will but claiming to know anything as certainty in regards to a celebs private life is just ridiculous.

    She may or may not be using him. Who cares? We’ll never really know but as they say, time will tell.

    • D. says:

      If she had an intention to use him she could/would do so much more for attention. She has instagram and twitter account, she could post a lot of intimate things his fans crave for (like Selena Gomez does with her bfs), but she keeps it strictly professional. They haven’t been papped together for over month, just a few fan pics, compare this couple to Nikki Reed/Ian Sommerhalder and you get the idea which one is famewhoring and which one is low-key.

  20. Iheartgossip says:

    She is very unfortunate looking.

  21. Camille (The Original) says:

    She seems cool and is much more talented than him. I don’t care for them as a couple at all. They don’t seem like a good fit to me.

  22. Corrie says:

    I never would’ve guessed i see the day when Kristen fans are DMing fake stories to trash Twigs and Rob but that’s whats being sent all over twitter. The Radar story that started at OK and all the other trash narratives. Sad really.

    Also, Twigs has not worn or shown a stitch of new bling, clothes etc that we haven’t seen her in the day she met Rob. They are desperate.

  23. Source says:

    The K fans feel they have some kind of right to say how Rob spends his money, because it’s THEIR Twilight money. Because he hasn’t made another film since. Or had any lucrative contracts or anything.

    It’s like your employer handing you your paycheck and telling you how to spend it.

  24. dree says:

    I love this couple, they seem genuinely madly in love I don’t believe this for a minute, she seems hard working and ambitious yes, but i don’t think even if she tried she could spend all his money in the short time they been together. He is worth close to 100 million dollars.
