Kristen Stewart's mom is speaking out against a Mirror reporter who claimed she outed her daughter's alleged same-sex relationship during an interview.

On Saturday, the Mirror's Sharon Feinstein published a story with quotes attributed to Jules Stewart about the "Twilight" star's purported romance with her personal assistant, Alicia Cargile. Rumors sparked earlier this year when paparazzi captured photos of the two vacationing together in Hawaii.

“What’s not to be accepting about her now having a girlfriend? She’s happy," she was quoted as saying. “She’s my daughter, I’m just her mom so she knows I would accept her choices. I’ve met Kristen’s new girlfriend, I like her. What’s not to accept? She’s a lovely girl.”

However, Jules Stewart denied that she ever even mentioned her daughter during her conversation with Feinstein.

“I spoke to Sharon Feinstein about my film K-11 that has been put on display in the Hollywood Museum,” she told Us Weekly. “It’s currently there under the LGBT banner on the third floor. She also asked me about my views on gay rights, which I was happy to express. Then we talked briefly about the fundraiser I am hosting for TheWolfConnection.org. Never ever did we discuss Kristen!

Feinstein took to Twitter to defend herself.

Then she had some technical difficulties.

She ultimately published a statement on her blog:

I am aware that Ms Jules Stewart has stated that her interview with me has been used out of context, that she never discussed her daughter or her daughter’s relationship. That is simply incorrect.I have reported the story as discussed and memorialized during our lengthly and cordial formal interview, which took place on Thursday 11th June. I am disappointed and saddened by her statements to the contrary This was a very positive story and one told by a loving parent. Any statements to the contrary are simply not supported and not true.

Jules Stewart has not responded to a Huffington Post request for comment. A rep for Kristen Stewart was not immediately available to comment either.
