The above photo is of a People magazine cover for the January 7, 2012 issue of the tabloid, claiming that Twilight actor Taylor Lautner is coming out as gay. It would have been a total bombshell of a story — if it were true.
A photo of Taylor is covered with the text, “Exclusive”, along with the subtitle, “Out & Proud”. Underneath that, it says, “Tired of rumors, the Twilight star opens up about his decision to finally come out. ‘I’m more liberated, and happier than I’ve ever been.”
A representative for the magazine told Gossip Cop that the cover is a fake!
It’s a good fake, though, isn’t it? This is how rumors get started. Still, the Photoshopper who made this did a pretty good job, as compared to their real magazine covers.
Taylor Lautner himself has yet to comment on the gay rumors. Did you buy into the hype?
Something like this starts off on Twitter and just spreads like wildfire on the internet. Did you see the cover and think that Taylor was really coming out as gay? Let us know in the comments!
