Twilight actress Kristen Stewart has reportedly split with her girlfriend, French singer Stephanie ‘Soko’ Sokolinski.
It’s been reported that the 26-year-old actress and the 30-year-old singer have been an item since early this year.
Stewart and Soko were often spotted kissing and holding hands in public.
Although Stewart was linked to her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson for many years, Soko was not her first girlfriend: she dated Alicia Cargile, who worked as her assistant, for eight months in 2015.
The actress has never confirmed or denied her sexuality. In fact she has shown a refreshing indifference to questions about her choice of partners over the years.
“Google me, I’m not hiding,” she told a magazine in a 2015 interview. “I think in three or four years, there are going to be a whole lot more people who don’t think it’s necessary to figure out if you’re gay or straight. It’s like, just do your thing.”
Stewart’s mother Jules was just as unfazed and showed immense support for her daughter.
“I feel like people need to be free to love whoever they want. I accept my daughter loves women and men. It’s OK to be who you are in my world. We all choose our friends so we should be free to choose our lovers,” Jules said.
“People are good to do whatever they like as long as they’re not hurting people or breaking the law.
“I have gay friends, family members, I’m accepting of people, we are all free to choose who we want to love.”
Kristen’s relationship with Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson ended after she was seen kissing married Rupert Sanders, 44, who directed her in Snow White and the Huntsman. Since then she has been intensely private about her love life.
