UPDATE (9/16/13): Miley Cyrus may now be back on the market (and available to date Mike WiLL Made It) now that she has reportedly split with Liam Hemsworth.

Original story (9/13/13):

As sad as we’d be to see young love fade, we’ve suspected things might be drawing to a close between Miley Cyrus and her fiancé of more than a year, Liam Hemsworth, in the wake of the 20-year-old pop star’s controversial 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.

Why are we so jaded? Word is Liam’s team wants the “mortified” 23-year-old actor to distance himself from Miley’s questionable career choices. Whether or not that’s true, neither young entertainer has confirmed. But now we’re hearing Miley might have a new man in her life. Is Liam out for good?

The rumored new guy, Atlanta-based music producer Mike WiLL Made It, worked with Miley on her single “23” for her forthcoming album Bangerz. Various photos of the two looking cozy have raised questions about if they’re more than just professional buds. Maybe they are but, honestly, Miley posing for pics alongside well-known figures in the music world isn’t exactly news. After all, “23” does also feature Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J.

Now if Mike WiLL Made It had been seen on, say, the clothing optional set of Miley’s other mega hit, “Wrecking Ball,” we’d be a tad more suspicious.

So true or false? Has Miley moved on with Mike or is this just a bad rumor? Share your feels in the comments below.
