Soko, whose real name is Stéphanie Sokolinski, has seemingly confirmed that she’s in a relationship with the former Twilight star in her latest interview with W magazine. Speaking to the publication about sex and salacious private messages she’s received through Instagram, the 30-year-old singer reveals she met Stewart, 25, the traditional way despite the fact that they are currently in a long-distance relationship.
When asked about how to direct message someone on Instagram for a date, she replies, “Oh man, I have no idea. I think if I was in the need of doing that right now, I would totally be able to come up with something. But I’m very, very, very in love and very happy in a relationship, so I don’t have that urge.”
“It was very OG,” she adds, after the interviewer questioned if she met her current girlfriend that way.
Soko, who was recently seen kissing Stewart in Paris, also opens up about sex and her own sexuality. According to her, she has no preference when it comes to gender.
“I’ve always been open with my sexuality, meaning I don’t really care about gender,” she says. “Sex for so long was such a taboo thing. You couldn’t be free with your sexuality and say that you like it. But it’s one of the biggest joys of life. If you find one partner who you love having sex with, it’s the best! This new generation is a lot more liquid with sexuality and it’s really refreshing.”
Similarly, Stewart has remained opened about not being defined by her own sexuality. In a 2015 interview with Nylon magazine, the actress insisted she’s “not hiding” her sexual preference.
“I think in three or four years, there are going to be a whole lot more people who don’t think it’s necessary to figure out if you’re gay or straight. It’s like, just do your thing,” she said at the time. “If you feel like you really want to define yourself, and you have the ability to articulate those parameters and that in itself defines you, then do it.”
