In the definition of “click bait,” a fake news article was posted online claiming that Robert Pattinsion had come out of the closet as gay.
The article, which appeared on a site that seems to exclusively run fake stories to lure users in, claimed to have an exclusive interview with Pattinson.
In an exclusive interview with Now88News Twilight star Robert Pattinson has admitted to a secret holiday romance with 31-year-old male model Brad Owens.
“I completely fell for this guy and at first I thought I was confused with my emotions and I did not want to let my female fans down … But after careful consideration I felt it was best to come out to the public and confirm that I am gay” Says Robert.
Superstar Robert Pattison who shot to fame in 2008 with the movie Twilight has been in many relationships with stunning women and no one would have guessed he would end up coming out as a gay man.
With his good looks and charm any woman would envy the news of him romancing in the Bahamas with his new man Brad.
The Gay Times magazine have since contacted Twilight star Robert with a multi million dollar modeling contract but Robert says he is yet to take up the offer as he is concentrating on his acting career.
Just to be clear: None of the facts in the story are true. Robert Pattinson did not come out as gay. He was not offered a modeling contract by Gay Times. Gay Times simply replied to the blatant falsehood with a resounding “WTF” to PinkNews.
Even though things seem to have calmed down a bit, with everyone realizing the article was a fake, a brief moment of hysteria hit earlier today after Twitter users became aware of the article.
Is it true that Robert Pattinson is gay? But Kristen Stewart is lesbian. Can they get back together? 😂 #twilight

There has been no word from Pattinson on the story. But we expect to hear more when/if he decides to take legal action.
