" Robert was exhausted of the situation, he broke their engagement and said to his friends that they had separated (...) It is a hard situation, but their situation has become unbearable between them for some time and they all know the two that their relationship was not working " she explained. "With so much history between them, though, there are still strong feelings there", the source was quoted as saying.
Robert Pattinson has reportedly called it quits with fiancée FKA Twigs, joining a long list of Hollywood celebrity breakups this year.
While there have been reports for a few months that said that this couple was headed in the wrong direction, it seems that a source has finally confirmed to The Sun on October 11 that they have officially broken up.
'It's a hard situation but things have become tough between them for some time, and they both know they were no longer working as a couple, ' the source added.
When the pair's relationship first came to light Twigs was bombarded with bad racism from Pattinson's so-called fans.
Just weeks before that, the British actor said that he was "kind of engaged" to girlfriend FKA during an interview with Howard Stern.
"Kind of?" Stern asked.
FKA Twigs hasn't been wearing her engagement ring...
The "Remember Me" actor also addressed his somewhat secretive relationship with the singer, as he revealed he keeps his love life under wraps because he's anxious about "crazy" fans who believe his romance is a "conspiracy". Since then though a number of things have suggested that they could be heading for a split: for one thing, rumours have been circling about the palpable chemistry between Pattinson and Katy Perry, after they were photographed at a restaurant together earlier this year. "It's one of the most frustrating things in the world", he explained to USA radio host Howard Stern, "because you want to be able to do that (show public displays of affection), but to get kind of stuck in a position where, like, you have to make the decision". The relationship has been fizzling out'.
