Kristen Stewart's Rumored Girlfriend Stephanie "Soko" Sokolinski Says She Once Went on a Blind Date With Robert Pattinson
How’s this for common ground? Kristen Stewart’s rumored girlfriend, French singer-songwriter Stephanie “Soko” Sokolinski, has revealed that she once went on a blind date with Stewart’s ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson. In an interview with A Music Blog, Yea? from March 2015 that’s recently resurfaced, Soko (now living in Paris) revealed what happened the week she moved to L.A. on a whim. “It was the best thing ever!” she said. “Three nights in, I went out and met a girl who was like, ‘Hey, I like your music. I work for a label, and we would love to sign you. Where are you staying? Do you need a place to stay?’ and I was like, ‘Yeah, I do.’ That same night I had a blind date with Robert Pattinson!”
Do you think that it was an awkward reveal to Stewart or did the two have a good laugh and bonding moment when they discovered that very major coincidence? Well, it clearly isn’t an issue because Soko has been very open about how much in love she is. She recently sat down with W magazine to talk about an X-rated zine she’s creating that uses NSFW images she receives privately via Instagram. When asked how she would respond to a DM asking her out on a date, Soko couldn’t answer because of her current relationship status: “I think if I was in the need of doing that right now, I would totally be able to come up with something,” she explained. “But I’m very, very, very in love and very happy in a relationship, so I don’t have that urge.”
While Stewart has not confirmed (or denied) that she’s in a relationship with Soko, she has not shied away from kissing and holding hands in public. And, natch, Pattinson has not commented on his date with Soko.
