Robert Pattinson Addresses Racism Against FKA Twigs — Says Commenters Are 'Demons Who Live In Basements'
The singer has openly mentioned she is not a fan of fame, and she and her fiancé have faced their fair share of relationship rumors — having to shut down stories that their upcoming nuptials are no longer happening.
But far and away the worst of all the constant scrutiny comes from those who still harbor racist resentment towards the Twilight star's lovely lady, and he's had enough.
Robert was talking to NME magazine about the hateful messages twigs has received in the past, and it's clear it makes him furious. He said:
"I was talking to my dad about this and I bet him that if he looked up Nelson Mandela's funeral on YouTube, the first comment would be a racist one. And it was, with like a million upvotes. What I don't get is why. I think it's because most normal people are not commenters – I've never met anyone who's left a comment on anything. It's just demons who live in basements. You have this weird thing where you end up trying to fight against this faceless blob, where the more you hate it, the bigger it gets, because it's all in your head."
While he tries to stay off the internet himself — and avoid all the haters and trolls — the 29-year-old says sometimes the curiosity gets the best of him:

In an interview with The Times published on Monday, the 29-year-old reveals that the six-pack he had in the hit franchise is incredibly difficult to maintain.
Surprisingly, the British babe is glad that Hollywood is such a vain industry. Without an emphasis on looks, he'd completely let himself go!
The Map To The Stars actor confessed:
"I'm so glad about the vanity required in this job because if I didn't have to stay in shape, I'd be such a fat ass."
When Pattinson was younger, he could get away with exercising just weeks before a role.
Unfortunately, that's not the case anymore:

So it shouldn't be shocking that it took the Twilight actress quite a while to get over her breakup to the British cutie.
Earlier this week, the starlet opened up about her past relationship and how she used the heartache as inspiration for her new film Equals with Nicholas Hoult. The film is about a futuristic world where emotions are outlawed. Whoa!
In case you forgot, the brunette beauty was caught cheating on her on-screen (and former off-screen) love with Rupert Sanders back in 2012. Whomp, whomp.
In regards to the scandal, she shared:
Robert Pattinson & FKA Twigs 'Excited To Be Married' — Looks Like They Aren't On The Rocks After All!
Well that's a relief!
The insider says the cute couple is "excited to be married," and that just because they might have pushed back their wedding date, that doesn't mean they don't want it to happen:
"Twigs is still enormously happy with Rob and they aren't rushing to have the wedding. Things couldn't be better."
Rumors have been swirling that their relationship had been crumbling because RPatz is overseas filming a movie. But, the source says distance drama doesn't exist between them:
"They text and talk nonstop when she's on the road and they are away for work. They are always talking when they can't be together."

Say it ain't so!
However, last month a source said the cute couple was pushing back their wedding plans, and now an insider says the two are totally drifting apart!
Noooooo! We really REALLY hope this isn't true!
While the source says they haven't officially pulled the plug on their pending nuptials quite yet, it's not looking good. In fact, the insider added that the wedding is "off the agenda."
Yikes! But whyyyyyyy?!?
Turns out, with RPatz being overseas filming The Lost City Of Z, the distance is draining their relationship. The source says:
