Twilight’s Taylor Lautner dating Taylor Swift again?

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: In all likelihood, this week’s US Weekly piece on Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner is tabloid truth-stretching up to its old shenanigans. The one-page “Taylor & Taylor: Back on?” article predictably spun L.A. lunch and dinner spottings of the duo as “intimate” and “romantic”. That they weren’t seen kissing or doing anything that a bona fide couple would do to confirm a relationship seemed of little consequence to US Weekly. Yet, I have to admit, such blatantly speculative stories give more credence to rumors about Kristen and Rob.

For one, Taylor and Taylor once admitted they were dating, and in December of 2009 said they were no longer a couple, but would remain friends. The fact that they appeared to be dating when they said they were, and not to be dating in the elapsing time since the breakup, found people taking them at their word. Now, consider Rob and Kristen: she has never admitted to them dating and initial reports that Rob did on two occasions could not be definitively confirmed. Yet, tabloid reportage on Rob and Kristen’s signals has been far less of a stretch than this week’s “Taylor & Taylor story”.

A steady stream of credible observations of Rob and Kristen (e.g., photos of them holding hands at Charles de Gaulle, kissing at Kings of Leon, and being spotted together as recently as last month at a romantic five-star resort) combine to tell a rather persuasive tale. Kristen has asserted several times that admitting to a relationship wouldn’t stop intrusive inquiries, but is that really true? Taylor and Taylor seem transparent about their relationship, and for the most part, the press is leaving them alone. So, if Kristen is so adamant that her wish is to find herself less harangued by the paparazzi, why does she continue her refusal to answer the one question that could get them off her back?

    taylor lautner and swift are good couple..they look good together

    Comment Okay one Taylor Lautner should date someone who is not going to be with him 3 months and break up. I mean he went to her b-day party in Nashville, TN where Taylor Swift lives and broke up with him at her b-day party in front of ppl. Now the ppl that say that TL and TS is good for each other is wrong why bc if that was the case TS would have shown a lil more love to TL then she did plus she dated Taylor Lautner and Cory from glee, yeah so much for loving and caring about Taylor Lautner.
