The confirmation came after Vulture published an interview with American rapper T-Pain on Tuesday.
When asked whether FKA Twigs will be featured in his new album, he said:
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.
But here comes the juiciest tidbits of his new album. Before he could even think, he let slip that the 27-year-old British musician will not be involved in his album because she is engaged “to ‘ol Patty (Robert Pattinson)”! He then added, “I don’t know if she wanted anybody to know that…”
Although T-Pain’s later tweeted that it was just an April Fool’s prank, sources confirmed to People that they have indeed exchanged the engagement rings.

Sources told US Weekly the couple exchanged promise rings with each other last month, but the rings are actually engagement rings.
The insider said:
I hear they were telling people they were promise rings, but I haven’t seen Pattinson wearing one. They only told a few people about the engagement.
The insider further revealed that “they’ve been inseparable” since the day they started dating:
He’s planning on going to Coachella to support her. They’ve been living together and he’s been calling her his greatest love.
Pattinson previously dated his “Twilight” costar Kristen Stewart for more than 3 years, but they broke up in May 2013. A year after the split, he was photographed together with FKA Twigs last September in the East village in New York City. Sources then confirmed that they were indeed dating.
At that time, a source told US Weekly that they met through mutual friends and Barnett thought Pattinson was “unbelievably handsome”.
The pair was then spotted together again in Miami during Art Basel in December. According to E! News, the couple bonded over their love for music and Pattinson already brought her home to meet his parents last December.
“They absolutely loved her,” the insider told E! News.
The insider further revealed:
It went so well. Rob’s family has always been supportive of him and they thought they were great together.
No further details regarding their engagement were revealed, but this will be the first marriage for both Barnett and himself.
