Miley Cyrus and Stella Maxwell are dating, with pals describing the duo as a couple.
A Victoria’s Secret Angel, Stella and Miley have been secretly together for months, but only appeared in public recently, reported MSN. Cyrus and Maxwell’s PDA range from hand-holding to hugging, added a source.
“They hold hands and hug and are very comfortable together. They’re definitely together,” confirmed the insider of the 22-year-old pop singer and 24-year-old supermodel.
Most recently dating Patrick Schwarzenegger after ending her engagement to Liam Hemsworth, Miley got together with Stella in the spring of this year. Cyrus and her new significant other have visited Vegas as well as the South by Southwest festival. Miley’s BFF Cheyne Thomas introduced Cyrus to Maxwell.
Discussing her sexuality, Miley has been candid about her experience in dating women as well as men.
“There are times in my life where I’ve had boyfriends or girlfriends. And there are times where I just love being with myself and don’t want to give part of myself away to someone else… I think that’s a new freedom for women, especially.”
Mom Tish became the recipient of Miley’s first discussions about sexuality. Cyrus was only 14 when they had their exchange.
“I remember telling her I admire women in a different way. And she asked me what that meant. And I said, I love them. I love them like I love boys. And it was so hard for her to understand,” recalls Miley.
Cyrus explained that Tish wasn’t sure initially how to respond, but that her mother emphasized her trust and faith in her daughter.
“She didn’t want me to be judged and she didn’t want me to go to hell. But she believes in me more than she believes in any God. I just asked for her to accept me. And she has,” added Miley.
Cyrus and Maxwell’s relationship progress is evident on social media, reported the New York Daily News.
The singer and Victoria’s Secret model share Instagram photos of each other.
“Friendship at first sight,” summed up Stella of Miley.
Cyrus also got a healing visit from Maxwell when the singer was suffering after wisdom teeth removal surgery.
In a very public display of their relationship, Miley and Stella exited a hotel after staying there together, reported the Daily Mail.
The New York City hotel stay constituted Cyrus’ first public appearance with Maxwell since the singer revealed that she is bisexual.
As the Inquisitr reported, the Happy Hippie Foundation was created to help homeless and LGBT young people by Miley. Cyrus hopes for big possibilities for her organization.
“We started a year ago with Jesse and we were focused on the homeless youth in L.A. and different support groups in San Francisco. Now, we’re going bigger and wanting to take on America. And by the end of it we’re going to be taking on the world,” predicted Miley.
