Kristen Stewart’s mom, Jules, is denying a story in which she is quoted as confirming her famous daughter's bisexuality and romance with Alicia Cargile.
The Mirror (UK) steadfastly stands by the interview, however.
In the interview, conducted by Sharon Feinstein, Jules reportedly confirmed Kristen Stewart bisexual rumors that had been surfacing online.
Supposed, she said, What’s not to be accepting about her now having a girlfriend? She’s happy. I’ve met Kristen’s new girlfriend, I like her.”
The only problem? Jules claims that she never said any of this.
“I spoke to Sharon Feinstein about my film K-11 that has been put on display in the Hollywood Museum,” she told Us Weekly in a statement.
“It’s currently there under the LGBT banner on the third floor."
"She also asked me about my views on gay rights, which I was happy to express. Then we talked briefly about [a] fundraiser I am hosting."
"Never ever did we discuss Kristen!”
Noting that she is a “huge supporter of gay rights,” Jules admits she briefly discussed Alicia Cargile, Stewart’s assistant and rumored girlfriend.
“I said, ‘Yes, she’s a lovely girl,’” Jules said, when asked if she knew Cargile, but denies speaking about her lesbian relationship with Stewart.
Feinstein begs to differ. She tweeted on Monday, June 15, that she stands by her story and plans on sharing audio from the interview.
"I intend to load my tape of the interview I did with Kristen Stewart's mother Jules in two clips. Watch this space," she wrote.
She also wrote on her blog. "I am aware that Ms. Jules Stewart has stated that her interview with me has been used out of context."
"That she never discussed her daughter or her daughter’s relationship. That is simply incorrect. I have reported the story as discussed."
"I am disappointed and saddened by her statements to the contrary. This was a very positive story and one told by a loving parent."
"Any statements to the contrary are simply not true."
She added that the release of the audio is "not entirely up to her," so we'll see if she actually produces the interview that can prove this.
