Hollywood actress Kristen Stewart was caught by paparazzi in Paris with her rumoured new girlfriend, both of them engaging in a passionate kiss out on the streets of the city.
She was photographed locking lips with French singer and actress Stephanie Sokolinski – known better as Soko – yesterday. Photos of this intimate embrace emerged a day after they were seen taking a stroll together and holding hands in the French capital.
The Twilight actress who split from fellow Twilight star and long-term love Robert Pattinson in 2013, is notoriously private about her love life. However, speculation about her previous relationship with personal assistant Alicia Cargile had been rife since they were photographed cosying up together at Coachella music festival in April 2015.
In June 2015, Stewart’s mum, Jules Stewart, confirmed her daughter’s bisexuality and the alleged relationship with Cargile. Even though Jules subsequently denied outing her daughter in a separate interview, Stewart has been seen taking up a more active role in voicing out for the LGBTI community – in an interview with NYLON magazine in August last year, Stewart expressed that ‘in three to four years’ time, 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’. A month later, she also spoke up against infamous Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, saying that she felt ‘really bad’ for the clerk who she perceives as being ‘closed off to things’ and fearful of the unknown.
Neither Kristen nor Soko has commented on their relationship as of press time.
