Taylor Lautner is NOT “dating” Raina Lawson, despite a newly-published report. Gossip Cop has exclusively learned that the claim is untrue, and the actor is NOT in a relationship with the model.

The pair was first linked Wednesday by E! News, which tellingly had no details whatsoever about the supposed new romance, except for a so-called source simply saying, “It’s new.” The outlet even acknowledged that Lawson is “active on both Twitter and Instagram,” but “hasn’t posted anything about the relationship on her social media.”

There also haven’t been any paparazzi photos of Lautner and Lawson together in public, and there’s a good reason for that. An insider close to Lautner exclusively tells Gossip Cop that the story alleging they are “dating” is wrong, and says flatly, “They are not a couple.” Should the star’s status change, Gossip Cop will update.

As we previously confirmed earlier this month, Lautner and now ex-girlfriend Marie Avgeropoulos secretly broke up last year. Gossip Cop was told that while the movie star had moved on since then, he was not in a new relationship, which still appears to be the case. He and Avgeropoulos met in 2013 on the set of the movie Tracers, which is slated to hit theaters in March. Prior to Avgeropoulos, the Twilight star dated two other co-stars, Lily Collins and Taylor Swift.
