Robert Pattinson and his fiancé, singer FKA twigs, are not planning an elaborate, swanky wedding with a legion of celebrity guests. Instead, they reportedly are planning something a little more intimate and chill to tie the knot.
According to People magazine, who confirmed the engagement on April 1, Robert Pattinson’s parents, Richard and Clare Pattinson, “would really like a church wedding.” However twigs “wants something quite informal, like a pub wedding.”
Rapper T-Pain spilled the beans on the engagement in an interview with Vulture magazine, although he later said it was an April Fool’s joke.
“Well, the first time we even met each other, we met in the studio. Her music’s changed a lot since then. But she’s on tour so much, and anytime I call her, she’s in a different place,” he said of twigs. “And she’s engaged now, so that’s about to be a whole other thing.”

He went on to confirm that Robert Pattinson is the groom-to-be.
“Yeah, to ol’ Patty [Robert Pattinson]. I don’t know if she wanted anybody to know that,” he added.
Later, he posted his retraction on Instagram.
Pattinson, 29, and twigs, 27, are reportedly hoping to get married late this summer, though plans are “not definite,” that source told People.
Robert Pattinson split from his longtime girlfriend, Twilight costar Kristen Stewart in 2013. Sources say the actor seems “much more calm and happy” around twigs, the stage name for Tahliah Barnett, whom he has been dating for six months.
