Is Stella Maxwell A Lesbian, Who is The Partner – Kristen Stewart?
Stella Maxwell is one of the celebrities who are not afraid to share their romantic life with the general public. She is openly a lesbian and her partner is none other than the award-winning Twilight star and model Kristen Stewart.
Before Kristen came along, Stella was romantically linked to pop superstar cum actress Miley Cyrus in 2015. The pansexual singer rebuffed the claims but they appear to be very close friends.
In 2016, Stella Maxwell and Kristen Stewart became an item and have been together ever since. They kind of confirmed the speculations about their relationship when they shared a kiss during a romantic getaway in Milan. Kristen on her own part has been known to swing both ways when it comes to sexuality.
The Los Angeles-based actress has dated some of her co-stars including Michael Angarano, her co-star in Speak as well as Robert Pattinson, her love interest in the Twilight film series. Her relationship with Pattinson was much publicized but it hit the rocks in July 2012. The breakup was linked to a photograph that showed the actress in an intimate position with Rupert Sanders – the director of Snow White and the Huntsman who was not just a married man at the time but is also 19 years ahead of Kristen in age. When their illicit affair became public knowledge, both Stewart and Kristen issued a publicized apology to all affected parties.
Exploring the other side of her bi-sexuality, Kristen later dated visual effects producer Alicia Cargile, Soko, popular French singer-songwriter and another musician Anne Erin Clark who is better known as St. Vincent professionally. Before the end of 2016, Kristen and Stella Maxwell hooked up and have been enjoying a drama-free relationship.
In July 2017, the couple surprised another lesbian couple – Kirsten and Kayleigh Jennings at their wedding in Canada. From 10 pm to 1 am, they danced and mingled with other guests at the wedding reception which took place at Pizzeria Gusto in Winnipeg.
