Since the beginning of the Twilight franchise, rumors have followed the actors.  Well leaked photos of People Magazine's January 7th issue leaked with a huge rumor-Taylor Lautner coming out and proud.

This just goes to show you that Photoshop can twist the truth to millions.  A leaked photo of People magazine's January 7, 2012 issue was leaked and on the cover none other than Twilight hunk, Taylor Lautner.  The cover reads 'Out and Proud.'  The photoshoped cover also has Lautner saying that he is 'more liberated, and happier than he's ever been', since announcing his homosexuality.  "Tired of rumors, the 'Twilight' star opens up about his decision to finally come out," the cover states.

The cover also has pics of Brad Pitt with his baby.  Now if you know your celebrities then you know that Brad Pitt hasn't had a baby in years.  His youngest are already like four.  But the cover did fool a few people.

When the cover hit the internet, hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons tweeted that he was "proud of Taylor Lautner for his bravery and his courage."  Of course when he realized it was a hoax he recanted his tweet saying that he was  "disappointed that people would joke about someone coming out about their sexuality. Let Taylor Lautner be whoever he wants to be..."

This isn't the first time rumors about Lautner's sexuality have surfaced.  Like Simmons says, let him be who he is and let him live his life.  Now let's be honest, were you fooled?
