After months of tabloid speculation, Kristen Stewart's relationship status with her assistant, Alicia Cargile has been confirmed - by Kirsten's own mother.

I guess no matter how famous you get, your mom will still be excited to tell everyone how proud she is of you. Kristen Stewart's mom, Jules Mann-Stewart, 55, told UK newspaper The Mirror:
"I’ve met Kristen’s new girlfriend, I like her. What’s not to accept? She’s a lovely girl."
Despite the fact that things are getting much better for LGBTQ in the entertainment industry especially after Caitlyn Jenner's transformation, there is still a long way to go. It is great for Kirsten's mom for being one of the good guys and taking her daughter for who she is. Featureflash / Featureflash / Contrary to the massive amount of speculation in the media, the only word from Kristen herself on the nature for her feelings for former assistant Alicia Cargile was during a Conan interview. In the interview Kirsten Stewart revealed that her relationship was "complicated". It is no wonder Kristen is upset with reporters. She is constantly followed by paparazzi. One incident with a paparazzi member hit a climax after a reporter asked her about her sexuality. There have even been engagement rumors after Kristen Stewart was spotted wearing a ring on her ring finger in January. Kristen Stewart's mom, who also works in HOllywood as a script supervisor, elaborated on her support for Kirsten and her girlfriend in the same interview with The Mirror:
"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 accept my daughter loves women and men."
It's great to see Kristen and Alicia happy together, and amazing that Kristen's mom is chill and supportive about their relationship. Let's hope more people can follow Jules Stewart's example.
