Just when this breakup between pop princess Miley Cyrus and movie hunk Liam Hemsworth couldn’t get weirder, Us Weekly is reporting that the Bangerz singer is hooking up with Twilight star Kellan Lutz — who just happens to be a good friend of Liam’s. Awkward alert!

A source tells the mag that Kellan, 28, reached out to Miley, 21, in early December. “The next day, they hung out. And they’ve been hooking up ever since,” the source revealed, contradicting Miley’s claim that she was “happily single” just a few days ago.

Kellan, who has been beefing up for The Legend of Hercules, is “nice eye candy” for Miley, the source continues. Um, we have to agree! “It doesn’t hurt that he’s Liam’s pal,” the source added. “But they really enjoy each other’s company.” Uh huh, we bet they are!

These two sparked rumors on December 17 when they stepped off the same private jet, separately, after returning to Miami after an overnight trip to the Bahamas.

Our hearts were broken when the “Adore You” singer and the Hunger Games hunk broke up back in September after their three-year relationship. Soon after the breakup, Miley went on Ellen and proved that she is extremely mature for her age.

“I just believe that when a chapter is done, you have to close it and start that new one,” Miley revealed on the talk show. “That's kind of where I am right now. I felt like I have so much to be thankful for at this time that my energy hasn't really been focused on that.”

If you ask us, Miley’s so-called next chapter is looking pretty sexy.
