She recently admitted she’s bisexual and now Miley Cyrus is fuelling rumours of a romance with model Stella Maxwell.
The pop star, 22, and the Victoria’s Secret Angel, 25, have become inseparable in recent days.
On Saturday they were seen checking out of a New York City hotel, in their first outing together since the reports surfaced.
The Wrecking Ball singer flashed her toned midriff in a pair of grey sweatpants slung low on her hips and wore a cropped strip top and denim jacket as she followed the blonde model out of the hotel.
Stella had her long hair tied back in a ponytail and wore a white tank top tucked into her denim jeans.
Both the young women wore sunglasses and bright red lipstick.
On Wednesday, the pair were spotted sharing an embrace in the Big Apple just days after Miley admitted to being bisexual in an interview.
Then on Friday, the New York Daily News’ Confidenti@l column claimed that a source close to Miley and Stella confirmed they have been dating for ‘months’ and are known in their circle of friends as ‘a couple’.
‘They hold hands and hug and are very comfortable together. They’re definitely together,’ the insider said.
It’s believed that Miley and Stella were introduced through the singer’s assistant and close friend Cheyne Thomas.
Stella, though, joked during an interview with V Magazine earlier this year that the two ‘met through Grindr’, the gay and bisexual dating app.
The New Zealand stunner, who was born in Belgium to Northern Irish parents, has been jet-setting around the world with Miley over the past few months, enjoying trips to Las Vegas and the South by Southwest festival in Texas.
They both feature heavily on each other’s Instagram pages, cozying up for selfies.
Miley was previously engaged to Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth and dated Patrick Schwarzenegger for five months until their split in April.
At last Tuesday’s amfAR Inspiration Gala in New York, she showed up with 24-year-old poet and photographer Tyler Ford, who identifies as agender.
Ford told ET that ‘agender is genderless or having no gender.’
‘It’s pretty simple. I don’t identify with a gender. I think I am who I am. I’m a person and that’s enough, Ford went on. ‘It’s not an uncommon thing, it’s just something that hasn’t been addressed in the media until as of late, but I’m definitely not the only one.’
The pop star has never named a female lover but has been open about her bisexuality, telling Paper Magazine last week: ‘I am literally open to every single thing that is consenting and doesn’t involve an animal and everyone is of age. Everything that’s legal, I’m down with.’
The Tennessee native is also the founder of the nonprofit Happy Hippie Foundation that’s dedicated to helping homeless and LGBT youth.
In publicizing her nonprofit, she has spoken about having had both boyfriends and girlfriends at different times in her life.
