Is Taylor Lautner gay???

A People Magazine cover reading “Taylor Lautner: Out & Proud” got tongues wagging when it surfaced on the web this evening … but it turns out the cover is a fake!

According to the mag, Taylor is out and proud and will soon be dancing under a rainbow flag. 

STORY: Taylor Lautner Has Something For The Ladies!

For over an hour the jaw dropping news was trending on Twitter. 

But Gossip Cop got the real story: 

The image of the supposed January 7, 2012 issue shows Lautner above the phrase “Out & Proud,” and allegedly offers the “Exclusive” that the actor is going public with a bombshell about his sexuality.

“Tired of rumors, the Twilight star opens up about his decision to finally come out,” promises the “People” cover, which quotes Lautner as saying, “I’m more liberated, and happier than I’ve ever been.”

We suspect this is all from a Twilight hater, who didn’t get what they wanted for Christmas.

Gossip Cop spoke to a rep at People and this was their response:

A rep for the magazine confirms to Gossip Cop exclusively that it’s “absolutely fake.”

Nevertheless, the Photoshopped fake is being circulated everywhere via Twitter and other social media on Monday.

We thought April Fools wasn’t for a few months … we wonder what Taylor thinks about all of this?
