PHOTOS: Kristen Stewart goes public with new girlfriend for first time


Actress Kristen Stewart has gone public with her rumoured new girlfriend by passionately kissing her on the streets of Paris.

The Twilight star has been avoiding labeling her sexuality since last summer, when she was reported to be dating her personal assistant, Alicia Cargile.

Now Robert Pattinson's ex appears to have a new woman in her life, after openly locking lips with French singer/actress Soko on Tuesday.

Photos of their intimate embrace emerge a day after Kristen and Soko, real name Stephanie Sokolinski, were spotted holding hands during a romantic stroll in the French capital.

Representatives for both women have yet to comment on the relationship speculation, but Kristen alluded to her bisexuality in a candid interview with Nylon magazine last year, when she was questioned about her personal life.

"Google me, I'm not hiding," the 25-year-old actress retorted.

"I live in the f**king ambiguity of this life and I love it," she explained. "I don't feel like it would be true for me to be like, 'I'm coming out!' 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."

Her comments emerged months after her writer/director mother, Jules Stewart, attempted to distance herself from quotes attributed to her in an interview for Britain's The Mirror newspaper, in which she appeared to confirm Kristen's alleged romance with Alicia.

In the June piece, Jules was quoted by reporter Sharon Feinstein as saying, "What's not to be accepting about her (Kristen) now having a girlfriend? She's happy. I've met Kristen's new girlfriend, I like her."

Jules subsequently insisted the quote was made up, stating, "I spoke to Sharon Feinstein about my film K-11 that has been put on display in the Hollywood Museum. It's currently there under the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) banner on the third floor. She also asked me about my views on gay rights, which I was happy to express... Never ever did we discuss Kristen!"

However, the reporter hit back at the accusations, insisting she had Jules' remarks on tape.
