Taylor Lautner Breaks Up with Girlfriend Marie Avgeropoulos Amidst Gay Rumors

Good news everyone, Taylor Lautner is single again!

The actor and his costar girlfriend Marie Avgeropoulos have broken up after over a year of dating, Us Weekly has confirmed.

A source tells Us that the split was entirely amicable. The hunky actor is currently dating, but is not in any exclusive relationship at the moment.

Reports of Lautner and Avgeropoulous’ split surfaced just a month after the Twilight hottie was seen hanging out around The Abbey (which is very straight friendly) and Mother Lode, two gay hotspots in West Hollywood, according to Radar Online sources.

This triggered rumors that the actor could be gay, or at least bi-curious, and the rumors were later further fueled by Lautner’s photo with openly gay model Murray Swanby.

Radar reported, that Lautner is a regular visitor to the LA hot spots but left early after the crowd recognised him.

“Taylor was definitely trying to be incognito it looked like, but everyone there was staring at him,” the source said. “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,” the source said.

This is of course all hearsay, but I don’t think the gay community would mind of Taylor came out of the closet. His female fans might be tad disappointed though.
