For years, people have been obsessed with Kristen Stewart’s love life, and for months people have been speculating that it’s taken a turn for the sapphic. In an interview with The Mirror, Kristen’s mom Jules Stewart confirms that it has—Jules says Kristen is dating her assistant, Alicia Cargile. Ah yes, the old “personal assistant” trick. Classic.

Here’s the tea, as only a mum could steep it:

Jules, 55, told the Sunday Mirror she has met personal assistant Alicia Cargile and that the couple are very happy together.

She added: “What’s not to be accepting about her now having a girlfriend? She’s happy.

“She’s my daughter, I’m just her mom so she knows I would accept her choices.

“I’ve met Kristen’s new girlfriend, I like her. What’s not to accept? She’s a lovely girl.”

Jules, who also has a Hollywood career as a script supervisor, added: “I feel like people need to be free to love whoever they want. 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.”

Kristen Stewart “loves women and men” according to her mother, but calling this an “outing” doesn’t quite seem right. I’m willing to bet that Kristen Stewart is way too complicated to just be a lesbian, or a bisexual, even. She’s fluid, she’s queer, she doesn’t believe in labels, etc. Maybe one day she’ll tell us, maybe she won’t. Whatever, it’s a free country.
