Singer Talia Barnett, aka FKA Twigs, talked about how she was bullied by fans of actor Robert Pattinson during their romance.

FKA Twigs, who dated the Twilight star from 2014 to 2017, told BBC Radio 4 that her relationship with Pattinson made her a target of racism and other attacks.

“ People just called me the most offensive, ignorant and terrible names on the planet, – said the singer. “It was really, really very terrible, and at the time I felt like I couldn’t talk about it.”

 FKA Twigs added, “He was their white prince charm and they thought he should be with some kind of white blonde.”

The singer recalled how fans of the actor compared her appearance to a monkey: “Let’s say if I was in a red dress, they would have a monkey in a red dress, or if I was on a bicycle, they would find a monkey on a bicycle.”

“ I just remember that it had a huge impact on me … every time I saw my pictures I thought, ‘Damn it, I look like a monkey, and people will say that I look like a monkey, so I have to really try to hide this monkey that is in me, ”she continued.

FKA now feels “ very confident” in their appearance, but admits, “It was deeply unfair at the time when I was made to feel so shy and so ugly. It went on for a long time. “

We will remind, recently FKA Twigs ( Talia Barnett) filed a lawsuit in the Supreme Court of Los Angeles, in which she accused actor Shia Labeouf of sexual violence and causing emotional suffering.
