Taylor Lautner has split from his girlfriend, Marie Avgeropoulos, after dating for more than 18 months. The news spread like wildfire in the press because of Lautner’s recent activities with friends. Sources close to the couple say that the split was indeed amicable and that both parties are moving on. It was just one week ago the couple was spotted holding hands. But while Taylor is now single again, it sounds like Lautner isn’t actually rushing back into a relationship.
There have been rumors about Taylor Lautner’s sexuality swirling, but the actor has not spoken out about his sexuality. And in all fairness, the public should not be concerned about whether Taylor prefers the company of women or men – or both. Sources say that Taylor is back on the dating market, but is in no rush to settle down again.
According to a new Celebuzz report, Taylor Lautne’s newly single status is making people question whether he is indeed gay. Lautner and Marie split just one month after he was caught hanging out at two very straight-friendly gay bars with some friends in West Hollywood. Lautner was spotted at The Abbey and the Mother Lode bars.
Of course, Lautner’s presence there fueled various rumors, including thoughts that he may be gay or at least be bi-curious. It didn’t help his situation when Taylor posted a picture with openly gay model Murray Swanby.
“Ugh @official_taylorlautner #taylorlautner.. Such a #gorgeous boy.. #husbands??! Hahaha kidding #hotstraightguy #twilight #hotguys #feck thanks for checking out #TouchThursdays #abbey #murrayswanby,” read the caption to the picture Swanby took with Taylor.
It makes sense that Taylor Lautner would pose for pictures if someone asked him. He doesn’t seem like the kind of person who would say no to such an opportunity with his fans. In addition, Taylor could just have been accompanying a friend to these bars without having any interest in them himself. These visits to the gay bars were covered by the Inquisitr.
“Taylor was definitely trying to be incognito it looked like, but everyone there was staring at him,” a source has revealed about his visits to the bars, adding, “I think he left because people kept asking him for photos with him and he declined. It was not the first time that he was reportedly seen at gay bars in LA, as I have friends that claimed to have seen him out in the past year on other occasions.”
Do you think Taylor Lautner is gay or do you think he just went with friends who wanted to go to these bars? Do you think his breakup has something to do with his sexuality?
