FKA twigs says Robert Pattinson is worth fan abuse

FKA twigs is willing to put up with online abuse for dating Robert Pattinson because he's "very worth it."  

The 'Two Weeks' hitmaker, who started dating the 'Twilight Saga' star in September, admits the constant attention surrounding their relationship is difficult, but tries not to get upset about the racist messages she has gotten from some of his young fans.  

She said: "I really enjoy the fun of putting something out and people liking it or hating it or talking about it, but vacuous attention, it feels disgusting. It's like a hangover.  

"It's weird, I know that's not really because of me or what I'm doing, [but] the positivity that I get from (my relationship) makes the more challenging aspects ... very worth it."  

She told USA Today newspaper that most of the abuse is from "14-year-old kids that should be in bed."   

The British singer - real name Tahliah Barnett - previously confessed she was "shocked" and "disgusted" after she was inundated with horrific comments on Twitter shortly after confirming her relationship with the 28-year-old hunk.  

The 26-year-old singer tweeted: "I am genuinely shocked and disgusted at the amount of racism that has been infecting my account the past week.  

"Racism is unacceptable in the real world and it's unacceptable online."
