Star Magazine has reported that Selena Gomez is forced by Disney to keep her romance with Taylor Lautner under the radar in an attempt to prevent her career from decreasing. In a report run on the June 29 edition of the publication, it is claimed that Disney execs have asked Selena to deny reports she is dating the "Twilight" actor over concern that their relationship might ruin her good girl image.
"The network doesn't want parents to get the wrong idea and stop their kids from watching Selena's show," reports Star when referring to Selena's hit TV series "Wizards of Waverly Place". Selena, thus, has been "forced to downplay the relationship even though she's crazy about" Taylor, reveals a Disney turncoat.
"Disney wants all its stars to be wholesome and execs told Selena to deny she's dating Taylor because that might taint her squeaky clean image. She can be 'friends' with him, but nothing more than that," Star quotes its insider.
Despite mounting evidence to the contrary, both Selena Gomez and Taylor Lautner have repeatedly denied they are embarking on a love relationship. They insist they are just friends. Rumors of them dating first emerged in April this year after they were photographed enjoying some quality time together during break from shooting their films in Vancouver, Canada.
