Since his appearance in the movie, he has secured a permanent spot as "Celebrity Crush List." And along the way of his movie star career, he's dated plenty of Hollywood beauties. 

The 28-year-old actor was born to his mother Deborah, and a pilot father, Daniel Lautner. Also, he was the highest-paid teenage actor in Hollywood and has amassed a net worth of $40 million.

He has been linked to some of the most popular starlets he has worked with. However, he got engaged in the gay rumors.

Taylor Lautner Dating History

Starting his dating history, he had a high school sweetheart named Sara, and also, they were together until he was rinsed with the Twilight fame. Shortly after he started gaining popularity, he appeared to have broken the heart of his high school girlfriend.

Taylor, who took the California High School Proficiency Exam to graduate from high school, has dated most of the brunette who starred opposite to him in the movie. 

Hitting the list of his girlfriend, he was romantically linked with Justin Bieber's ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez after they filmed for the 2009's: New Moon and Ramona and Beezus in Vancouver. The rumors aired after they were spotted hanging out together, including movie dates, shopping trips, dinner dates, and bowling.

Well, moving on to the next list, he dated the Love Story singer Taylor Swift after they co-starred on the movie Valentine's Day. But their relationship fizzled out as soon as it began. Also, the songstress wrote the song Back to December about their romance.

Also, the mixed ethnicity actor found the new love with his Abduction co-star Lily Collins in 2011. The couple seemed to have dated just for the publicity stunt as the couple split right before the movie premiered.

Eventually, Lily moved on and started dating an actor and singer, Jamie Campbell Bower, after the couple starred in the movie Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.

As a teenager, his heart seemed to ache for the actress with who he worked alongside.

Then, the former Twilight heartthrob found love in actress Marie Avgeropoulos after co-starring in the movie, Tracers in 2013. The couple dated for two long years keeping their relationship extremely low until they split in 2015.

Here, he added another co-star in his love history after starring in the Scream Queens and the beautiful actress Billie Lourd in 2016. He was by the side of his Scream Queens co-star as she dealt with the sudden death of her mother, Carrie Fisher, and grandmother Debbie Reynolds at the end of 2016. And the couple dated for less than a year and decided to split in July 2017.

Well, the teen werewolf of Twilight Saga seemed to have won another heart of singer and actress Olivia Holt. The rumor started to fizzle up after the pair were spotted together at the church service in Los Angeles in November 2017.

Is Taylor Lautner Gay?

The word 'Gay' has revolved around Taylor Lautner for a long time now. His sexuality hit the headlines when a fake People magazine cover announced  'Taylor Lautner is out and proud gay.' The magazine, which got published on 7 Jan 2012, featured Lautner with texts announcing he is gay and tired of rumors. Moreover, the fake magazine quoted him, saying his decision to come out as gay has made him feel more liberated and happier than before. 

The fake news swirled like wildfire all over the internet and reached to celebrities like Def Jam’s co-founder Russell Simmons.

Responding to the unknown fake news, the co-founder congratulated Lautner via Twitter, saying;

Proud of Taylor Lautner for his bravery and his courage

However, People magazine (the legit one) cleared the smokes after it announced that the cover featuring the 'Twilight' actor coming out as gay was 100 percent fake. Julie Farin, the spokesperson of People magazine, said;

The cover in question is 100 percent fake. This began as a ridiculous Twitter joke that went viral

Russel Simmons, correcting his mistake, once again tweeted for Lautner and said he was disappointed that people make fun of someone's sexuality. He tweeted;

disappointed that people would joke about someone coming out about their sexuality. Let Taylor Lautner be whoever he wants to be....

The rumors again hit back after Lautner was photographed with the gay underwear model Murray Swanby at the gay bar in December 2014.

Aside from this, a gossip Hollywood site Defamer also claimed that Taylor had hooked up with twink-loving director Bryan Singer to further his acting career.

Siding all the rumors, when he was asked if any of his male fellas as a hit on him, Taylor condemned him to be a straight guy. He said:

"No, definitely not. I think they know I'm straight. But they're great guys. They're a lot of fun."  

It is all clear now, Taylor Lautner is definitely not gay.

Is Taylor Lautner Single?

In 2019, Taylor took the opportunity of Halloween to confirm his relationship with girlfriend Taylor Dome. He made the big reveal by posting a picture on 29th October on Halloween, where he could be spotted kissing her cheeks.

Moreover, the pair were dressed in a basketball outfit, referencing their costume choice referencing the 1996 sci-fi movie Space Jam.

Although there are very scant details about his lover, it is known that she is a nursing student. She also happens to be a good friend of his sister Makena. 

Well, this hints that Lautner's sister might have been the matchmaker.
