Hmm, what do we have here? It appears as if Taylor Lautner, 24, might have found love again with a gorgeous blonde model — assumed to be Raina Lawson, 21 — after sharing a beach day with friends in Malibu, California. A series of photos show Taylor and a girl who looks nearly identical to Raina hanging out on the beach with a group of friends, including two other girls and a guy, as well as sharing a boogie board in the ocean. Cute!
In the pictures of Taylor and the blonde boogie boarding together, she is straddling his back and holding on tightly to his neck as they ride the waves. The Raina look-alike is rocking a seriously sexy white bikini, while Taylor covered up in surfing gear to keep from getting a rash on his abdomen. However, HollywoodLife.com can confirm that the girl in the pictures is NOT Raina and instead just a friend of Taylor’s.
Interestingly enough, this is not the first time that Taylor has been linked to Raina. Back in January 2015 rumors swirled that the pair were dating after they were photographed together a few times, though the rumored couple seemed to fall off the radar almost immediately after. Could this hot new blonde be Taylor’s next girlfriend? We’ll just have to wait and see!
Just days before Taylor and the Raina look-alike were spotted on the beach together, the real Raina posted the cutest picture of herself posing with his little sister, Makena Lautner, on Instagram. Sadly, there are zero photos of Taylor on Raina’s account.
