What's Really Going On With Miley Cyrus And Yungblud?

Miley Cyrus has been spotted getting cosy with British musician Yungblud, sparking rumors the pair are dating. As the Daily Mail reports, Cyrus was seen knocking back drinks at the iconic Rainbow Room in Los Angeles alongside Yungblud (real name Dominic Richard Harrison), who had previously dated "Closer" singer Halsey

Speaking exclusively to E!, an eyewitness revealed that Cyrus appeared to be having a "fun night" with the musician. "She was very happy and in her element. She was belting out songs at the table and full of life." The witness continued, "There was a vibe between them and they didn't take their eyes off of each other ... It definitely looked like something is going on between them."

Elsewhere, a source close to Miley also revealed the "Can't Be Tamed" singer is "definitely going through a phase right now" (via PopCulture). Speaking to E!, the source explained, "She is all about having fun right now ... She has been writing a lot of music and has been getting inspiration from collaborating with her friends and being her true free-spirited self."

Are Miley and Yungblud really dating?

Although speculation surrounding the pair's relationship status has gone into overdrive, a source close to the "Party in the USA" hitmaker claimed Cyrus and Yungblud "are not dating." Speaking to E!, the insider revealed the pair met through a mutual friend in the music industry and have been friends for a long time. "Miley and Yungblud were definitely flirting with each other, but they are not dating." They continued, "It was just a fun night out with friends, but there is definitely chemistry there."

Yungblud is one of several famous names to be romantically linked to Miley Cyrus in recent years. Per Harper's Bazaar, the singer enjoyed a short-lived fling with Brody Jenner's ex-girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter in 2019, before moving on to date Australian singer-songwriter Cody Simpson. However, the pair called it quits in the summer of 2020. 

Cyrus was also previously married to The Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth. As People reports, the couple tied the knot in December 2018 and sadly parted ways less than a year into their marriage. Announcing their divorce, Miley's rep said in a statement at the time, "Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what's best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy."
