Robert Pattinson 'falls hard' for new love

ROBERT Pattinson has "fallen hard" for FKA Twigs.

The 'Twilight Saga' star became "instant friends" with the singer - whose real name is Tahliah Barnett - and romance quickly blossomed, with friends saying he is as serious about her as he was former girlfriend Kristen Stewart, who he dated for five years until last summer.

A source told HollywoodLife.com: "Rob is falling hard for Tahliah. He's just enamoured with her beauty, creativity and confidence. He hasn't felt this way about someone since Kristen.

"This is his girl and Rob is beyond proud to show her off. They became instant friends at first and it blossomed into a romance. He's really taken with her and not afraid to show it."

The 28-year-old actor has already introduced the 26-year-old musician to his friends in Los Angeles and is enjoying showing her the sights of the city.

The source added: "He's helping her get adjusted to LA life and has been really supportive of her - showing her around, introducing her to his friends. I wouldn't be surprised if he showed up on the set of her music video, which she is filming in town this week."
