Taylor Lautner isn’t leaving Billie Lourd’s side following the shocking death of her mother, Carrie Fisher, and her grandmother, Debbie Reynolds, the very next day. The pair was laid to rest in a dual ceremony last week, which Taylor attended in support of Billie. Taylor and his “Scream Queens” co-star are continuing to spend time together and, according to a PEOPLE source, he’s been an incredible shoulder to cry on.
“He’s a great guy and has really been there for Billie,” the source alleges. Taylor is also said to have been at the hospital with Billie following her mother’s cardiac arrest. His kind social media shoutout to Billie fell in line with the rest of the “Scream Queens” cast, but it had an extra layer of affection. “This girl is one of the strongest, most fearless individuals I’ve ever met. Absolutely beautiful inside and out. I’m lucky to you know,” he wrote.
Taylor and Billie spent part of Monday afternoon together, which could read as nothing more than support given the circumstances. Though, fellow cast member Keke Palmer did capture a kiss shared between Taylor and Billie earlier in December. Perhaps Taylor is more than just a supportive friend.
Regardless, Billie is surrounded with love.
