“What’s not to be accepting about her now having a girlfriend? She’s happy,” Jules is quoted telling Mirror. “She’s my daughter, I’m just her mom so she knows I would accept her choices.”
According to the report, the 25-year-old Twilight star’s mom said: “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 Stewart, an artist and filmmaker, told Us Weekly she spoke to freelance journalist Sharon Feinstein about gay rights and called Cargile “a lovely girl” when asked if she knew her —; but she denied speaking about her daughter or her personal life.
Feinstein fired back on 广州蒲友, promising to post a recording of her interview with Jules. “When someone has spoken to a journalist in good faith it isn’t fair to blatantly deny it and call the journalists (sic) integrity into question,” she tweeted.
Thanks to all believers in journalists and their integrity and decency ! Let’s turn the tide against the haters !!

In a statement on her blog, Feinstein said she is “disappointed and saddened” by Jules’ statements. “This was a very positive story and one told by a loving parent,” she wrote. “Any statements to the contrary are simply not supported and not true.”
Kristen Stewart’s relationship with her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson ended in 2012 after it was revealed she had a fling with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
Pattinson is now rumoured to be engaged to British singer FKA twigs.
In April, Kristen appeared on Conan and described Cargile, her personal assistant, as her “buddy” and “confidante.”
The pair have been the subject of speculation since being snapped out together last summer.
