Taylor Lautner has reportedly found love again. Following his recent split from his “Tracers” co-star, “The 100” actress Marie Avgeropoulos, rumor has it that the former “Twilight” lead has found a new girlfriend. According to E! Online, the 22-year-old film star is dating a woman named Raina Lawson.
“It’s new,” a source said of Lautner’s romance with Lawson, 20. But for those who don’t want to see the “Twilight” hunk off the market just yet, don’t fret! The insider hinted to E! that while the actor is allegedly linked to the blonde hair and blue-eyed beauty, their romance isn’t exactly set in stone. “Taylor is dating and having fun. Nothing serious,” revealed the source.
And in even better news for those who prefer for Lautner to remain off the dating scene, Gossip Cop claims that the actor is not romantically linked to Lawson in any capacity. “They are not a couple,” a source told the site.
While Lawson has yet to make a public appearance alongside Lautner, she is active on social media. Her Instagram and Twitter profiles are filled with personal snaps. Her social media posts make it apparent she is close friends with Disney starlet Bella Thorne, has a love for Sam Smith’s soulful ballads, the Disney animated film “Frozen,” and Coachella. She also appears to have a big heart for animals due to her support for the charity clothing company Arm The Animals.
“Help us teach people to ADOPT, not shop for pets!” reads Lawson’s Jan. 28 Instagram post alongside an image of herself sporting one of the charity company's designs. “Too many pets have to get put to sleep because of overcrowding in shelters.”
After over a year of exclusively dating, Lautner split from Avgeropoulos, 28, earlier this month, according to Us Weekly. The former couple first met in July 2013 on the set of the action film “Tracers.” In the movie Lautner stars as a wanted New York City bike messenger named Cam who falls for stranger (Avgeropoulos) while trying to escape from the Mafia. The film is set for a March 20 release.
Lautner has a pretty extensive dating history. He was previously linked to pop singing sensation Taylor Swift, actress Lily Collins, former Disney star Selena Gomez, and even his longtime “Twilight” co-star, Kristen Stewart.
