James Franco is the first to officially congratulate his brother Dave and hunky heartthrob Zac Efron on their newly-public relationship, posting a screenshot of an article confirming the new Hollywood power couple on Instagram.
“Effron [sic] and My brother, dating!!!!!!”, he writes. “Congrats, boys! I’m so happy for you!!!”
We knew it. We called it the day they admitted giving each other blowjobs on the set of this film.
The news of Efron’s brand new relationship with his Neighbors costar comes less than a month after reports linked him to openly bisexual actress Michelle Rodriguez. It is also, unfortunately, totally fake.
The screenshot, described as “pretty convincing” by someone at E! who is obviously blind, was reposted by Franco from the fan account @davefrancock. It was apparently Photoshopped by the 17-year-old girl who runs the account using tabloid headlines and photos pulled from this April Hollywood Life article linking Zac to someone named Halston Sage.
If you look closely, the doctored article includes the byline “davefrancock” and an author photo of James Franco.
It was fun while it lasted, boys. And sorry for the false alarm; you can go back to looking at pictures of Tom Daley now.
