The Internet has been buzzing all morning about a "leaked" coming out cover featuring Twilight star Taylor Lautner -- but it's a fake!

An obviously photoshopped People magazine cover shows Taylor supposedly announcing that he's "out and proud" and "tired of the rumors." The fake cover story goes on quote Lautner as saying his decision to come out has left him feeling, "more liberated, and happier than I've ever been."

A rep for People magazine confirmed the cover a hoax to Gossip Cop, saying the cover is "absolutely fake."

The fake story has tricked fans and even celebs like Russell Simmons, who tweeted Taylor a congratulatory tweet: "proud of Taylor Lautner for his bravery and his courage." Once realizing the mistake, Simmons tweeted: "disappointed that people would joke about someone coming out about their sexuality. Let Taylor Lautner be whoever he wants to be..."

Back in October when Taylor covered Australian GQ, his sexuality was a topic of conservation after he was spotted around Los Angeles with Oscar winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and director Gus Van Sant, both of whom are gay.

Lautner was asked if either “made a pass” at him over dinner and Taylor responded: “No, definitely not. I think they know I’m straight. But they’re great guys. They’re a lot of fun.”

    That's why I don't read People or any of those other tabloid mags. They suck lies out of thin air. Did they consider what they could do to the poor guys reputation? People mag you suck!!!!!!!

    I agree. I have a couple of guy friends that are what people consider feminine. But one is married with a kid and they both are very straight. I hate it when society tries decide a person's sexulity for them....it's sad and it's pressuring.....just let people live and be what they want to be.

    I don't know I know a few guys who are not gay but sure as hell act like it...I think he is a flamboyant guy that's...not everyone who laughs alot and talk fast is gay. lol

    What in the hell? Why would he be asked if either of them tried to hit on him? Because they're gay they must be trying to plow anything that walks? What an idiotic question. Ugh this whole story is pointless and annoying, why even cover this?
