Taylor Lautner fan sites and gay websites were in Heaven when they thought the Twilight hunk tweeted an underwear picture for his fans.
A Twitter account called “OfficialTL”had a lot of people fooled — 132, 349 to be exact — when it sent out this tweet.
When our RumorFix crack team saw the black and white picture on a few sites, we were immediately suspicious for the following reasons:
- The Taylor Lautner account isn’t verified
- Taylor doesn’t like the kind of guy who would a). pose in underwear b). tweet out the picture
And, we were right. We contacted Taylor’s rep, who told us exclusively, “We can assure you that is not Taylor’s Twitter account and he didn’t tweet any photograph.”
Our investigation continued and we found more proof that the Taylor Lautner photo was a fake. We found the original photo (the color photo)– it’s of model Renato Ferreira.
Someone with remarkable Photoshop skills took the color out of the picture and replaced Renato’s head with Taylor’s facing in the exact same direction — thus making a very convincing phony!
Another rumor fixed!
