Are Miley Cyrus and Yungblud dating?! That seems to be the question on everyone’s minds, after the two stars were caught getting super cozy at a bar over the weekend. Yep, the Hannah Montana alum and the musician were spotted cuddling and kissing while out with friends on March 25, 2021, and we have all the details on their rumored new relationship.
In a series of photos obtained by Daily Mail, Yungblud — whose real name is Dominic Richard Harrison — could be seen sitting with his legs draped over Cyrus’ lap while they were out together at the Rainbow Room in West Hollywood. He could also be seen playing with her hair and touching her face throughout their steamy date, and get this — at one point during the night, the “Wrecking Ball” songstress even appeared to nibble on his finger.
“They went back and forth, giggling and touching before appearing to steal a kiss,” the outlet reported.
Are Miley Cyrus And Yungblud Dating?
So are they Hollywood’s hottest new couple? Well, according to People Magazine, nothing romantic is going on between the two stars — for now, at least. Sources told them that despite the PDA-filled pics, the pair is “just friends” at the moment. Plus, it’s been speculated online that the singer is currently dating Jesse Jo Stark, but it’s still unclear whether or not there’s any truth to that rumor.
“Miley and Yungblud are not an item. He is dating Jesse Jo Stark,” an insider insisted to Instagram account Deuxmoi.
As for Cyrus, she’s been single ever since she split from Cody Simpson in August 2020, and she’s definitely enjoying it. Back in February, she opened up about the plus sides of not being in a relationship.
“Man. Being single sucks. All I ever do is WHATEVER THE F**K I WANT,” she wrote on Instagram.

Who Even Is Yungblud?
For those who don’t know, Yungblud is a 23 year old singer and songwriter who grew up in Doncaster, England. He stepped onto the scene in 2018 when he dropped his debut EP, Yungblud. Shortly after, his first full-length album came out, which was called 21st Century Liability. The following year, Yungblud released another EP, called The Underrated Youth. Then, his sophomore album, Weird!, came out in late 2020, and it was full of bops.
As for his love life, he was previously linked to Halsey, but they kept their relationship pretty secret. Rumors first started to swirl that they were dating in January 2019, but because they were so secretive about it, it’s unclear how long they were together or when they officially broke up. But by September 2019 it was clear that they were over, since she was caught holding hands with American Horror Story actor Evan Peters.
Has Miley Cyrus Been Linked To Anyone Else Lately?
Back in December 2020, Cyrus admitted that she totally wanted to date Harry Styles — wow, how iconic would that be?! Yep, during an interview with the UK-based radio station Heart FM, the blonde beauty played a game of “Would You Rather. And when she was asked if she’d rather kiss Justin Bieber or Styles, she chose the One Direction member.
“Harry,” she quickly replied, adding that she’s known the Biebs for so long that he’s “like family” to her.
“[Styles] is looking really good. Really good,” the pop star continued. “And we have very similar taste. Sharing a closet, sharing a life together, it just makes sense.”
OK, we are so here for this pairing! And when the radio host offered to get them in touch, Cyrus was all for it. She responded with a laugh, “Everyone is always playing cupid for me these days!”
Then, in March 2021, the former Disney star made another move towards Styles when she posted a pic of herself holding a magazine called “The Ultimate Guide To Harry Styles.”
“CONSIDER THIS BOUGHT. Adding to my HS collection immediately,” she wrote.

And days later, Cyrus shared a few black and white snaps of herself to Instagram, which she captioned, “Harry Styles took these photos.”

However, he’s currently dating Olivia Wilde, so we don’t think Cyrus has a chance at the moment. Sorry!
What Happened Between Her And Cody Simpson?
Cyrus’ last public relationship was with Simpson, whom she dated for almost a year. They were first spotted kissing in October 2019, and after that, they quickly became inseparable. They definitely weren’t afraid to show off their love — constantly sharing adorable pics together, packing on the PDA in public and gushing over each other in interviews. But in August 2020, they shocked the world when they announced that they had split.
“Today, it came out that me and my boyfriend had broken up. It was ‘confirmed by a reliable source,’ although no one is reliable in a relationship, except the two individuals participating in it. But for right now, two halves cannot make a whole and we’re individually just working on ourselves to become the people that we want to be,” Cyrus explained during an Instagram Live at the time. “Like everyone else at this age, we’re deciding who we want to be and what we want to do with our lives. So don’t make it some drama story if next week we’re spotted hanging out or getting pizza. We’ve been friends for 10 years and will continue to be friends. Don’t make it something that it is not.”
Before that, she dated Liam Hemsworth on and off for 10 years. She’s also been linked to Kaitlynn Carter, Stella Maxwell, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Jared Leto, Kellan Lutz, Avan Jogia, Justin Gaston, Nick Jonas, Dylan Sprouse and Tyler Posey over the years.
