Model in photo with Taylor Lautner at gay West Hollywood hotspot tries to defuse rumors

Openly gay model Murray Swanby is now trying to diffuse a new wave of speculation over Taylor Lautner after posting a photo of himself and the Twilight star taken last week at a gay West Hollywood hotspot.

Swanby, an Andrew Christian model, was at The Abbey with Lautner and posted their photo on Instagram with this caption: ‘Ugh @official_taylorlautner #taylorlautner.. I’ve never been more #attracted to someone in my life.. #husbands??! Hahaha half kidding #hotstraightguy #twilight #hotguys #feck #TouchThursdays’

After several websites ran items with such headlines as ‘Did Taylor Lautner Just Come Out On Instagram?’ Swanby went online to quell the growing speculation.

‘If Taylor Lautner was coming out, I would have taken him home Thursday night,’ he wrote on Facebook and Twitter.

While The Abbey is known as a gay hotspot, it is not exclusively gay and has served as host to events featuring such famous straight folks ranging from Hillary Clinton to Jay Leno and was a favorite hangout of the late actress Elizabeth Taylor.
