Miley, god love her, never stays single for long. It’s been maybe a week since she ended her brief fling with Kaitlynn Carter, and yesterday she was filmed by TMZ at a casual Los Angeles eatery with our own Cody Simpson. 

Apparently the pair were deep in conversation, then Miley decided to take things one step further and sidled over to sit in his lap. They then started making out, according to reports, and the footage from TMZ shows Miley sneaking in a few more kisses.

The pair have been friends for years. In late 2014 they were rumoured to be dating and in 2015 they spent a lot of time together although Simpson insisted they were just friends. He told GQ “Miley is one of my best friends and she helps with some of that transitional stuff – trying to escape your childhood. She’s super open-minded and I’m working on becoming more like that.”

Simpson is 22 years old and hails from the Gold Coast. He’s mates with Bieber and they often rib each other on Instagram. He’s a musician, singer, songwriter, dancer and actor, and on his Instagram he describes himself as a “musician, poet, environmentalist”, which sounds kinda Miley-ish. 

But, you know, it’s Miley, so a lil kiss doesn’t necessarily MEAN anything. In her latest Instagram pics she’s getting all autumnal with baby animals and pumpkins, and made jokes about her latest suitors while sitting next to ghoulish Halloween characters. 

Simpson, meanwhile, continues his habit of posting topless pics revealing his toned torso.

So I guess they do kind of have a bit in common. Time will tell if this close friendship blossoms into a full-blown romance.
