UPDATE (October 18, 2013):
Yet another outlet is jumping into the “is she or isn't she?” debate currently circling Miley Cyrus and her potential new boy toy, Theo Wenner. Huffington Post claims to have a source who says Miley and Theo have been an item since the summer, a development that suggests Miley and fiancé Liam Hemsworth called it quits earlier than they claimed. Or, even more scandalous, that Miley wasn't completely disengaged when she took up with Theo. Details to come as we get them.
UPDATE (October 16, 2013, 9:44 a.m. PT):
Okay guys, hold off on sending Miley Cyrus tweets of congratulation about finding herself a new man. A source over at E! News is countering earlier reports that the pop princess is “definitely dating” Theo Wenner and says the two are just friends. If celebs only went Facebook official, think how much easier all of our lives would be.
UPDATE (October 16, 2013):
Miley Cyrus and Theo Wenner are “definitely dating” a source tells RadarOnline.com.
The 20-year-old reportedly communicates with the 26-year-old photographer “several times a day,” says they’re casual dating, and is “completely in lust” with the former beau of Liv Tyler. So much, in fact, she left her own release party early (if you consider leaving at 5 a.m. early) to meet him, says the Radar report.
ORIGINAL STORY (October 7, 2013):
There’s one part of her life Miley Cyrus keeps hidden under wraps: her love life. It’s been only a few weeks since the 20-year-old pop princess and her fiancé Liam Hemsworth broke off their engagement but she’s already been linked to a whole slew of new men (and potential baby daddies).
In the immediate aftermath of her split from Liam, Miley was rumored to be pregnant with either his baby or fellow musician Juicy J’s. She was also tied to Mike WiLL Made It, a rumor that gained momentum the more photos Miley posted of her and the music producer getting cozy while creating Bangerz. Plus, Justin Bieber has supposedly been blowing up Miley’s phone.
Now there’s a new name to add to the list of “potential men for Miley.” Ladies and gentleman, meet Theo Wenner.
Name not familiar? That’s likely because Theo has made his career working behind the scenes as a photographer though that hardly means he’s new to the spotlight. Theo has previously been linked to starlet Liv Tyler and is the son of Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner. Theo currently works for the magazine, which Miley recently graced as the cover girl (the topless cover girl).
“Theo and Miley have stayed in constant contact with each other [since the photoshoot],” a source told E! News but, the source adds, that’s only because they’re “new friends.”
It was reportedly in the spirit of friendship that Miley invited Theo to see her host and perform Saturday Night Live on October 5, where he is said to have sat in the studio’s VIP section right next to Miley’s mom Tish, older sister Brandi, and, believe it or not, Mike WiLL Made It.
Conclusion: Either Miley wanted to do a side-by-side comparison of her potential next boyfriends, or she just makes for a really good friend.
