It took a surprising amount of time for Miley Cyrus to find herself a new man, but this one is lasting longer than some may have expected.
Her last relationship was with Liam Hemsworth, who for a time was her fiancé, and this courtship lasted four years, though much of it was on-again, off-again.
But now she has herself a new man: Patrick Schwarzenegger.
And so far this relationship has some staying power.
While rumors hit recently that Cyrus and Schwarzenegger were dating, the pictures paparazzi caught of them kissing and canoodling at a University of Southern California Trojans football game does more to confirm the relationship.
The two seem like an odd couple – the pairing of a Cyrus with a Kennedy, yet from the pictures, they don't seem to be letting that bother them. Miley Cyrus is of course the almost-22-year-old daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish Cyrus. Patrick Schwarzenegger is the 21-year-old offspring of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. He's an actor and model and is studying at USC.
E! reports that the two actually tried dating a few years back during one of her off-again times with Hemsworth. When they reconciled, Schwarzenegger was left out. He's always had eyes for her, though, as even in 2011 he was quoted as saying, "My eye, though, is set on Miley."
A friend of the couple notes, "They might seem like an odd pairing, but they are quite good for each other. They've been friends forever." Another insider speaks of how close they are. "They are having so much fun together that friends don't know at certain times if they are a couple or best friends."
If even their close friends are unsure whether they're just best friends or a couple, it's impossible for fans to know, but the pictures seem to be clearly saying, "Couple."Comments
