Kristen Stewart has revealed that she’s dating her former personal assistant Alicia Cargile, admitting that they’ve been on-and-off for a while!

Kristen was first rumoured to be linked to Alicia back in 2015 after being snapped out in public together.

And Kristen’s mum was the one who confirmed the relationship last year when she told the The Sunday Mirror: “I’ve met Kristen’s new girlfriend, I like her,” she said. “What’s not to accept? She’s a lovely girl.”

More recently, Kristen dated French singer Soko, but is now back-on with Alicia. Yikes!

“Right now I’m just really in love with my girlfriend. We’ve broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and this time I was like, ‘Finally, I can feel again,'” Kristen gushed in an interview with Elle UK.

She also admits that she’s more open about her personal life now that she’s in a same-sex relationship and feels much happier because of it.

“When I was dating a guy I was hiding everything that I did because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialised, so I didn’t like it.

“We were turned into these characters and placed into this ridiculous comic book, and I was like, ‘That’s mine. You’re making my relationship something that it’s not.’ I didn’t like that. But then it changed when I started dating a girl.

“I was like, ‘Actually, to hide this provides the implication that I’m not down with it or I’m ashamed of it, so I had to alter how I approached being in public. It opened my life up and I’m so much happier.'”

In an interview earlier in the year, Kristen insisted she didn’t want to ‘define her sexuality.’

“Me not defining it right now is the whole basis of what I’m about. If you don’t get it, I don’t have time for you. There’s acceptance that’s become really rampant and cool. You don’t have to immediately know how to define yourself,” told Variety in May.

“I had to have some answer about who I was. I felt this weird responsibility, because I didn’t want to seem fearful. But nothing seemed appropriate. So I was like, ‘F**k, how do I define that?’ I’m not going to. Plus, I didn’t want to f**k with other people.

“I didn’t want to be this example: It’s so easy. I don’t want it to seem like it was stupid for them to have a hard time. I find the movement that’s occurring to be so important, that I want to be part of it.”

Glad you’re happy, K!
