Having Difficult Dad, Taylor Lautner Dumped by Publicist

1 June 2011 8:02 PM, PDT | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Daddy issue may have cost "Twilight Saga" star Taylor Lautner his high-profile publicist. According to The Hollywood Life, the Jacob Black in the vampire drama series has been dropped by Robin Baum of Slate PR. The two worked together for only three months, and the teen's father is allegedly to blame.

In its report, THR suggested that the early departure of Robin, who also represents Johnny Depp and Daniel Craig, happened because Taylor's father Daniel Lautner isn't the easiest guy to work with. Words are, the older Lautner was too demanding. Neither Robin nor Taylor's management has stepped out to comment on the speculations.

Taylor isn't the first high-profile actor Robin walked out from. Back in 2006, the publicist reportedly parted ways with Russell Crowe. Nonetheless, the "Valentine's Day" actor will have to look for Robin's replacement fast considering that his upcoming movie "Abduction" is due to come out in theaters in September. »

Taylor Lautner publicist quits; Difficult dad to blame?

1 June 2011 4:49 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Could our favorite teenage werewolf be a diva? We hope not, but rumor has it his dad might be.

  According to The Hollywood Reporter, Taylor Lautner has been dropped by his publicist after only three months on the job. Slate PR's Robin Baum, who also reps Johnny Depp and Daniel Craig, has resigned from the "Twilight" star's account.

The news comes a few short months before Lautner makes his action debut in "Abduction" this September. So what gives?

THR dishes that Papa Lautner hasn't been easy to work with, describing him as "demanding." No comment from the 19-year old's management, so we reserve judgment, but here's hoping the pretty boy can get a super publicity team behind him on the Asap! »

Taylor Lautner Dropped by Publicist Over Daddy Issues

1 June 2011 1:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Celebrity Gossip

From Popeater:

Taylor Lautner is making the leap from teenybopper science-fiction to full blown action star, but one person who won't be making that leap with him is his publicist, Robin Baum, of Slate PR. The 'Twilight' actor was in megastar company at the PR firm -- Slate also represents action and drama heavyweights like Johnny Depp and Daniel Craig -- before they told him to hit the road.

But according to The Hollywood Reporter, it wasn't his performance as a client that landed Lautner in the doghouse, it was his daddy. The 'Abduction' star's father, Daniel Lautner, is reportedly one difficult stage dad for whom Baum had absolutely no tolerance.

Hoping to market Lautner as more than the 19-year-old kid that he is, Slate dropped the talent after only three months serving as his agency -- Lautner's dad proved to be too involved »

Taylor Lautner Dropped By Publicist, Father to Blame?

1 June 2011 11:23 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

"Twilight" star Taylor Lautner has been dropped by his publicist, The Hollywood Reporter reports. The ex-publicist, Robin Baum of Slate PR, represents some of Hollywood's top leading men, including Johnny Depp and Daniel Craig . Baum resigned after only working with the 19-year-old for three months. It's not unusual for publicists to part ways with stars with image issues. "Jersey Shore's" Angelina Pivarnick was reportedly dropped by hers over her hard partying. Chris Brown was dropped by his after he broke a window after a "Good Morning America" interview. Nadya "Octomom" Suleman was called "greedy" and "nuts" by her former publicist. But for someone like Lautner, who has a squeaky-clean public image, the split raises eyebrows. Reports are that Lautner's burly father Daniel is difficult to work with, and that sealed the deal. Baum would not comment on the split, nor did Lautner's camp. Lautner isn't the first high-profile actor she's dropped. »
