"It's the real deal between Rob and Tahliah," the source says. "They had been able to keep their relationship secret until recently, but they're already smitten."
The two have reportedly been at it for a month or so. And, despite their efforts to keep things under wraps, stepping out in New York City together is essentially the personification of changing your relationship status on Facebook from "single" to anything but. "The main thing for Tahliah is that the relationship remains low key," the source explains. "She wants to be known for her music, not just as 'Robert Pattinson's girlfriend.'"
Though Barnett's hesitancy is valid, it's pretty safe to assume that that title won't be the case. Her debut album, LP1, is phenomenal. Its woozy, slow-burning hypnotic sound has made it one of the best-reviewed albums this year. Boinking Pattinson at this point is merely an asterisk to Barnett's eventual fame. (MTV)
