Twilight star who used to date with his colleague Kristen Steward (who belongs to LGBT community being in relationships with a woman but asks not to label her sexuality) has become a center of media attention again – a few tabloids reported about his coming out as gay.
The report has been shared more than 7,000 times on Facebook alone, attracting hundreds of thousands of comments and interactions. It claims Pattinson “admitted to a secret holiday romance with 31-year-old male model Brad Owens”, falsely claiming he said: “I completely fell for this guy and at first I thought I was confused with my emotions and I did not want to let my female fans down … “But after careful consideration I felt it was best to come out to the public and confirm that I am gay.” Vastly overestimating the finance available to gay media outlets, it continues to claim: “The Gay Times magazine have since contacted Twilight star Robert with a multi million dollar modeling contract but Robert says he is yet to take up the offer as he is concentrating on his acting career.”
It is not the first fake report of the hoax website where the ‘news’ appeared for the first time before being spread through the Internet. The actor denied the information, saying that he had never given such interviews and he is not gay.
