Kristen Stewart's mum confirms what the world's media refused to.

Now perhaps the world’s media can start treating this relationship for what it is: a relationship.

Twilight and Still Alice actor Kristen Stewart is dating a woman.

What’s the big deal? Apparently a lot if the world’s media are anything to go by.

The 25-year-old has been dating her girlfriend (who is also her former personal assistant) for months now, but mainstream media tended to try and cover this up by labelling the couple as friends.

Kristen’s mum has now confirmed the relationship between her daughter and Alicia Cargile.

And you know what? Good on her. Because now Stewart and Cargile can actually be seen for what they are – a couple.

Kristen Stewart is dating a woman. Finally, the world’s media is catching up.

“I feel like people need to be free to love whoever they want,” she told The Sunday Mirror.

“I accept my daughter loves women and men. It’s OK to be who you are in my world. We all choose our friends so we should be free to choose our lovers.”

Jules said she has met Alicia and the couple are very happy, apparently.

“I’ve met Kristen’s new girlfriend, I like her,” she said.

“What’s not to accept? She’s a lovely girl… She’s happy. She’s my daughter, I’m just her mum so she knows I would accept her choices.”

And the best part about it is that the world’s media is finally catching up and calling this relationship what it is: a relationship.
