Robert Pattinson’s girlfriend Tahliah Barnett, also known as FKA Twigs, performed last night (Oct. 8) for the first time since her relationship went public, stripping down to fishnets and a sexy swimsuit at the Hackney Empire in London.

Twigs, 26, is known as much as a performance artist as she is a singer. A part of her act is visual.

She wore a flowing denim skirt over her stockings and and Agent Provocateur swimsuit as she hit the stage.

Twigs worked as a back-up dancer before her music career gained traction and it showed. She swayed and gyrated provocatively before shedding her skirt. She danced in her stockings and ripped swimsuit.

The exotic singer, who is part Jamaican, English and Spanish. Her mother used to be a dancer and gymnast and Tahliah was attracted to performing at an early age.

She was little known outside of London music circles before her relationship with the 28-year-old actor went public earlier this year.

They spent time together in Los Angeles and were spotted holding hands on the boardwalk at Venice Beach on Sept. 21. She since has returned to London and may be trying to convince Rob to do the same.

He said in a recent interview he’s thinking about leaving LA and making London his permanent address.
