The singer and actor wear matching black outfits during the game and sit next to each other, only to add fuel to rumors of them dating.
Less than 24 hours after Perez Hilton tweeted about seeing Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner at a hockey game in Los Angeles, a photo emerged showing the twosome sitting side by side at the Staples Center. They were enjoying the game between the Columbus Blue Jackets and Los Angeles Kings on Sunday, October 25 when the snap was taken.
Prior to attending the game, Swift and her driver picked up the "Twilight" hunk at Los Angeles airport. After watching the hockey, the rumored lovers were seen in the lobby of a hotel in Beverly Hills, People reports. "Taylor Swift was all dolled up and looked super pretty," an eyewitness tells the weekly publication. "She didn't seem to mind the attention ... Taylor Lautner, on the other hand, was hiding under a hoody."
Calls seeking comment regarding the report have been made to representatives for both stars, but haven't been returned. Swift and Lautner also haven't made a comment just yet.
Speculation that Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner are dating has been brewing for quite some time. The singer and actor, who are partnered in next year's flick "Valentine's Day", ignited dating talks after she was videotaped giving him a long embrace after completing one of her shows in Chicago recently.
Her representative, however, denied they are dating, confirming their relationship is platonic. Contrary to the denial, gossip blogger Perez Hilton tweeted on Sunday, "Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner are at the LA Kings hockey game together right now!!!! Just friends? Love these two together! Team Taylors!"
The photo of Swift and Lautner's hockey date, during when they wore matching black outfits, can be seen on Celebrity Mania.
