Miley Cyrus living with 20 yo boyfriend, but has to keep bedroom door open

Yesterday we published photos of Miley Cyrus’ supposedly sober 20 year-old boyfriend, Justin Gaston, partying it up with some guy friends in a half shirt and shirtless. He looked drunk, and you would hope he was to be acting like that, but he was only seen with a glass of Mountain Dew and supposedly doesn’t drink. Maybe he’s just high on all the hormones and stupidity coursing through his young veins.

This week’s National Enquirer says that Justin is over Miley’s house that she shares with her family several nights out of the week and is practically living there. The 15 year-old is allowed to have her older model boyfriend in her room, but the two are supposed to keep the door open. As if they don’t sneak into each other’s rooms in the middle of the night:

The boyfriend of 15 year-old Miley Cyrus has moved in with her, the Enquirer has learned.

Miley’s dad Billy Ray approves of the shocking living arrangement because he thinks Miley’s beau, 20 year-old Justin Gaston, is a great match for his superstar daughter, say sources close to the family.

But don’t worry, Billy Ray hasn’t lost his mind – he keeps a close eye on his daughter, and she’s not allowed to close the door to her bedroom when Justin is with her.

“Justin is the guy Miley’s parents see her settling down with a few years down the line,” an insider told the Enquirer.

“He’s handsome, talented, clean-living, goes to church and knows his Bible – a real catch…”

Justin is also keeping an apartment, but has spent most nights in the Cyrus house.

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, November 3, 2008]

That’s just a recipe for disaster right there. 15 year-old kids know how to sneak around their house so they don’t make noise and you can bet these two are visiting each other in the middle of the night. How stupid can Billy Ray Cyrus be? The Enquirer also says that Billy Ray is the one who met Justin first and that he was so impressed with the kid he introduced him to Miley.

There’s another story in Star, which likes to stretch the truth to the breaking point, that Miley wants her own apartment for her 16th birthday next month. That’s probably not true, and if Miley has her older boyfriend right at home with her she doesn’t have to go through the trouble of convincing her parents to let her move out.

Miley played coy when asked by Ryan Seacrest on his radio show about Justin. She said “He’s been a really great friend. There’s a lot going on, everyone started judging us as soon as we started hanging out. I’ve learned not to judge and just go into our friendship with an open mind and not worry about the age and everything. Our families are like, whatever happens happens, no matter what he’s a great friend.”

Maybe their families are a tad too laid back about it. When a 20 year-old is involved with a 15 year-old some kind of judging can often help avoid future problems.

    And another *shocking* teen celebrity pregnancy announcement commences in 5…4… :roll:

  2. Alecto says:

    This can’t be right. I cannot imagine any parent allowing their 15 year old to have their 20 year old boyfriend practically living with them. Good greif. This is beyond mind blowing. How do they expect her to settle down with him in a few years? Maybe that’s how it was in the appalachian mountains in Billy Ray’s parents time but that ain’t how the world works now. You don’t met somebody at 15 that your going to spend the rest of your life with. Happily at least. This is ridiculas. :roll:

  3. Nova says:

    This is NOT Disney approved…i can tell you that!

  4. Roni says:

    I’m at a loss of words…I can tell you HONESTLY and I don’t care how much money she makes…that won’t be my daughter! I’m saying, THE HELL TO THE NO!” That’s what’s wrong with our world today and you can do A LOT with the door opened depending on what part of the house her parents are in…if they’re home at all! I see a “Disney Baby,” coming along in…I’ll give it 2 years!

  5. Kate says:

    People call Lindsay a fame whore.What do you call this girl and especialy her father?20 year old allowed around a 15 year old?And they are playing cards?Yeah right.

  6. daisyfly says:

    I’d kill my husband dead if he ever said this was appropriate behavior.


  7. Shelly Shellz says:

    How the hell is this even possible??? I have a friend who got in trouble with the law for being with a 16 y/o when he was 18! Knowing that theres a statutory issue going on here, y this 20 y/o in a “relationship” w a 15 y/o and more importantly y is it being overlooked by the “law”? Unf*knbelieveable…

  8. devilgirl says:

    @Alecto- You don’t have to be from the Appalachian Mtns. to let something like that go on. I knew a girl in college who was from (born raised)Beverly Hills. Her parents allowed her 23 yr old boyfriend to move in with them when she was 14. Goes to show, even if you are from high class, ritzy areas, parents can still lose their minds and let stuff like this go on. Regions have nothing to do with it.

  9. vdantev says:

    Like an open door can keep two horny kids at bay. It didn’t stop me :D

  10. Murmur says:

    Slutty, bratty Miley gets what slutty, bratty Miley wants.

    But in the end, what she will probably end up getting is an STD.

  11. Alecto says:

    I was only referring how in the time of Loretta Lynn when she was 13 she married her much older husband. It was just common in the rural areas for that to happen. Didn’t mean to single out the Appalachion but I guess I did. Here’s another from small town Louisiana. Jerry Lee Lewis married his 13 year old 2nd cousin.

    I’m begining to think that he’s a gay decoy. They’re only doing this for publicity. Keep themselves in the gossip spotlight. They know the disney money trian is at an end cuase she can only play a no talent teenage actress for so long and she can’t fall back on a talent she doesn’t posses. So as long as they can keep her name on our tongues with this outragenesses then mabye she can get some endorssment deals out of it.

    I went to my son’s fall carnival at his elementary school and saw a little girl wearing a Hannah Montana halloween costume. That disturbed me.

  12. Kaiser says:

    Well, yeah, I think Miley is a smug, ignorant little bitch, etc. And she has no business dating a 20-year-old, I don’t care if he reads the Bible or whatever.

    But I’m going to go out on a limb and say that there are worse things than parent-approved sleep-overs. Hey, at least she’s not out on the street or staying out all night, etc.

    At some point, most 15 and 16 year olds are going to experiment. Would you rather it be in some ratty borrowed apartment that could pass for a crack den, or her dad’s house?

  13. Alecto says:

    I would rather it not be condoned and helped along with the what appears to be permission from her parents.

  14. daisyfly says:

    “At some point, most 15 and 16 year olds are going to experiment. Would you rather it be in some ratty borrowed apartment that could pass for a crack den, or her dad’s house?”

    Why does it have to be in the extremes? Most 15 and 16 year old experiment. That’s a given, and it’s usually done in one of their homes. That doesn’t mean that the parent has to condone it and encourage it by allowing sleepovers. Parental neglect comes in all forms. This is just one of them.

  15. Syko says:

    This is so wrong on so many levels. I don’t even want to go into it.

  16. Codzilla says:

    Wouldn’t happen under my roof. No way in hell.

  17. Kaiser says:

    @Daisy – Oh, I’m in no way defending the utterly inappropriate relationship Miley has with her father – it makes me sick, honestly.

    But I will defend the *idea* of parents saying “I’d rather you do it under my roof than God-knows-where.”

  18. gg says:

    Off topic, but, good gravy – how stupid does he look with the 15-year-old dropout hairdo with the part down the middle? Billy. You are not a kid anymore. Not fooling anybody.


  19. Codzilla says:

    gg: Pretty damn stupid. Monumentally so. 8O

  20. Syko says:

    I suppose it’s better than his mullet. I’m not real fond of the flavor saver, either.

  21. what is ever. says:

    I’m sorry, but taking the stance that you’d rather have them do it under your roof than “God knows where” is just as irresponsible as the rest of his behavior. He needs to stop acting like her friend and be a freakin parent.

    You can discuss things openly with your children without condoning the action (while it is still age inappropriate). People who constantly need justification for their actions seem to think in such extremes (IMHO).

  22. JW says:

    When she was on the Barbara Walters special a few months back, they said she had a whole separate wing of the house to herself. That doesn’t jive with the “leave the door open” rule.

  24. Allie says:

    Why is a 20 year old guy, even interested in a 15 year old to begin with? When you’re that young, that’s a HUGE age difference. That would be like Miley interested in a 10 year old!
    Miley’s parents are being way too naive and trusting (or just plain stupid), if they allow him to sleep over in her room. That’s just asking for trouble.

  25. emma says:

    so how is an open door gonna help when she has one wing of the house all to herself?

  26. Carrie says:

    This is just wrong!!! How could parents do this. Well maybe Billy Ray and his wife are allowing her to do this because they are afraid they will lose their meal ticket. But honestly there is no good reason to allow this. There are other minor children in that home. Think of the example this is setting for Miley’s younger siblings. Why doesn’t social services step in? Isn’t this statutory rape??!!

  27. Alecto says:

    It’s only statutory rape if they’re having sex. Although it is most probable if he’s not a gay decoy. But not very provable unless she ends up preggers or the Cyrus clan decide to press charges. Which happens very often after a break up. U know it’s ok now that they’re in love and all but he took advantage of her and broke her heart after the break up. Happens all the time.

  28. Codzilla says:

    Alecto: I love your Gravatar. Are they yours?

  29. tigerlille says:

    Billy Ray isn’t stupid…, this is just some crap line he is giving the press. Look, Miley’s parents are the same idiots who let her pal around with that trashy twenty-something backup singer, her best friend, you know… I forget her name.

    I wonder if Billy Ray is trying to provoke Disney into breaking their contract with them? I think that they, that is, her parents, have the delusionary belief that Miley can make it even bigger than Disney as an independent singer/songwriter. The kid is not untalented, but she is not and never will be a major rock ‘n roll talent.

    Anyway, bottom line, Billy Ray is laughing all the way to the bank.

  31. David - the nudist says:

    Lay off of this family. It’s called trust. Maybe he trusts this 20 year old. If…and only if the young man betrays the trust, then your comments would prove valid. Until then, who are you to judge Billy Ray or this man? Do you know them personally? Do you live near them that you see everything that goes on in their lives? Like I said, lay off.

  32. Mix Well says:

    “He’s handsome, talented, clean-living, goes to church and knows his Bible – a real catch…”

    He is also more likely to sleep with Billy Ray than Miley.

  33. Because I say So says:

    David the Nudist– Is your last name Cyrus perchance? :roll:

    The whole family is ridiculous IMO. I can’t wait for the fifteen minutes to finally pass

  34. Bodhi says:

    LL IS a famewhore. And so is Miley. And Britney, for that matter. And all products of the Disney machine… Hhmmm

  35. Whitney says:

    Who cares it’s not our business its there own business really people are you bored with your own life’s that you have to get into everyone else business

  36. cara says:

    Isn’t a 20 yr old and a 15yr old illegal?

  37. Tanille says:

    Wow, does she ever look like a baby next to him in this pic. I know she is young, but she looks really young in that pic.

  38. Pipps66 says:

    Britney Spears……Chapter 2…….

  39. Pipps66 says:

    At 20 years of age this guy is already a smart man…..hitchin’ himself to the gravy train!!!!

  40. Goddess711 says:

    He’s a good catch because he “knows his bible?”
    Oh yeah, that’s right – open dooredness is next to Godliness. It’s like the 13th commandment or something, isn’t it?
    Thou shalt make thy daughter keep her door open while you allow her boyfriend to *sleep over*.
    16 = Jail Bait where I come from, but I suppose it’s in the bible somewhere that it’s somehow ok. Maybe daddy doesn’t want his spotlight/mealticket to leave home so he condones it all, of course, with the Christian Stamp of Approval. LMAO! These losers make the Beverly Hillbillies look like Aristocracy!

  41. aleach says:

    wh wh WHAT!? how creep-tastic of billy ray!
    ew im so grossed out by this…but look whats happening, were all talking about her, so theyre loving it yknow!

  42. spoonman says:

    What’s the issue??

    A 15 year old is being screwed by a 20 year old in her parents home-That is the issue!!!

    Isn’t that illegal? I hope Billy Ray files statutory rape charges and wakes up. He better start being the father he needs to be to keep his daughter from following in the Spears girls footsteps-young and knocked up…

    I hope she is smart enough to use a condom or Birth control-no need to see another unnecessary teenage pregnancy drama!!!

  43. Alecto says:

    Thank you. Yes these are my darlings. The white one is the Momma and the brown one is her 5 year old son. Sorry I didn’t responed all that timely but I’m at work. Hmm I think I’ll go for a ride after work… :D

  44. Ter says:

    And pretty soon Miley will be telling us she didn’t think she could get pregnant again so soon if she was breastfeeding, a la Jamie Lynn. Wow, it’s just so many OMG’s rolled into one: The parents acceptance or apparent naivete or lack of discipline, the age difference between the kids and the overall fame whoring on steroids. Are they all on crack??!!!

  45. Yoyoy says:

    wooooooooooow i am shock at this poor thing miley parents or should i say DADDY! is doing. wow again. it doesnt matter whether he knows the bible and goes to church. HElllo do they not read articles about britney lynn spears her and her fiance met at church and wow what came out of it was maddy.

    there is no doubt that keeping the door open is gonna stop them from doing anything. to be honest miley is a selfish hoeeeeeeee and wants her dad to worship her feet because she does hannah montana. Her dad is also using miley for his ownm selfish antics, so that he can create his own type of fame. Isnt it funny how they are trying to get “fired” of the set because music has more money than acting. there is your answer. Mr Cyrus wants to become a songwriter and to top up his career as a song writer and an artist and it is working. Well i dnt believe in them they are big hypcrites because if they were good “christians” they would not be getting tatoos on their bodies, which does not make sense. And quite frankly if miley does get pregnant it will surely mess up her career like jls (jamie lynn spear) so let her do what ever with or without the door open, we all know what is going to come out of it, a little Maisy or Scott

  46. Ana' says says:

    Uhmmm, isn’t this the same living arrangement that Jamie Lynn had with her boyfriend. I guess the prospect of being a grandpa appeals to Billy.

  47. Codzilla says:

    Alecto: Cool. I have three, myself. Hope you had a great ride. :D

  48. sweetzy says:

    Damn he’s so cute!! hehe.. do u think they can’t do anything with door wide open? Never trust kids now a days hahhaa.. she might end up like Brits lil sis. :)

  49. Maritza says:

    Her parents most likely have Miley on the pill so there won’t be any unwanted pregnancy.

  50. Elle says:


    That’s the first word that popped into my head after I read the headline. Don’t these people watch Judge Judy? This is only going to end poorly, either with him breaking her heart cheating on her or selling intimate pictures of her (because you know she’s taking them the proof is in the pudding)!

    Ugh! My mom would have punched me clear through my throat if I even suggested that my boyfriend move in! Are you kidding?! This is just outrageous and I can’t even comment any futher.

  51. trvlbug529 says:

    Guess that’s normal in Kentucky!!!!

  52. czarina says:

    I still remember thinking what an idiot Billy Ray Cyrus was when he said in an interview that he wanted to be his daughters “friend”, her “buddy” who wouldn’t judge her.
    16-year-olds don’t NEED adult friends…they need parents who will say “No, this is not appropriate”. Yes, kids will experiment, and some parents think that if they make home a place where they are allowed to have boyfriends sleep over that they won’t be sneaking off to do it.
    And there may be some truth in that, but a parent still has to take a stand, and it’s about morals and principles as well.
    Besides, it didn’t work for Lynn Spears, did it?
    As far as I’m concerned, dealing with your child honestly about the dangers of casual sex–both physical and emotional–letting them know you DON’T approve of it, while still being realistic enough to talk to them about protection is the smartest thing to do.
    Sure, they may sneak around, etc. but why make it easy for them?

  53. Elle says:

    Tanille, I thought the same thing when I saw the pic. Miley looks like a little girl, and how funny is it that Mom is banished to the back seat. Did you see her peaking around the edge, trying to be included?

  54. some1 says:

    so whattt!
    yes its stupid
    but if they think he is a ”good” boy its fine…..and if billy ray introduced them appearently the boy is okay. miley also has a purity ring so i dont think she is to anything horrible and billy ray already knows miley kisses people!!!

  55. Julia says:

    I saw his “drunk” pics and he is a model. Anyone thing he’s gay and that’s why it’s ok by the parents? :)

    Maybe that’s why Miley says not to judge and has said things about them being “really great friends”. I dunno, but my gadar is beeping loudly.

  56. Julia says:

    And to “Some1″, purity ring? Hahahahahahahaha. Unless by “purity” you mean “chastity” and “ring” you mean “belt”, I’m lol-ing.

  57. AJ says:

    :? Whats wrong with American parents

  58. Kyle says:

    oh shes def. not a virgin anymore that cherry is probably long popped :lol:

  59. DLR says:

    lol, this is tff. there is no way in heck this is a 20-year old guy practicing abstinance with a 15-year old, open door or not. miley’s parents are either totally whacked out and delusional or the guy is gay and this is all truly a platonic buddy-buddy thing with miley is his beard.

  60. Helena says:

    The boyfriend living with them. That is a very bad idea. I was also 15 years old and just my boyfriend coming over to watch a movie made me nervous (Didn’t do anything irresponcible until I was 18 and got married. Legal age in SA). Please protect your daughter.

  61. Al says:

    We know you read this page. You spend so much time on the internet making movies with your way too much older friends so we know you see this. WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS TOTALLY INAPPROPRIATE. It makes you both look like trash.
    Please stop.
    You are really sending the wrong message to teenagers and you will probably get fired.

  62. lin says:

    Has anyone ever read Priscilla Presley’s autobiography? She verifies what we known at the time she met Elvis, she was 14 and went to live with him at 15. Of course he reassured her father and mother that he would take care of her, educate her, and marry her.That was good enough for them. He probably waited 1 hour after she arrived at Graceland, Umm Cilla this my master bedroom. click, lock. I’m sure at 15 she didn’t protest too much. Besides it was Elvis.

  63. Momof2 says:

    I am so upset about this. What a great example she is setting for all the little girls who want to be like her.
    How much longer will it be before she is pregnant? like Jamie Spears. I will no longer support her nor alway my girls to have anything miley.
    What happen to the little girl that played Hannah MOntana ?

  64. Flaky says:

    hahahah, ditto to that, vdantev

  65. Vanessa Sirup says:

    Oh My God Oh My Heaven…. how could you do that Miley!!! I am your number 1 fan and you did some kind of BITCH things….I can’t believe it!!!!!!! If i am a boy ang my girlfriend is like you I will throw her away like a dustbin!!! but sadly I am a girl!!!! I HATE YOU MILEY!!!! I will not surppot u any longer/more. I will surppot Selina Gomez… I love her more than you!!!!:evil: Girl Miley!!!!! Can’t believe at all. no longer your 1 fan.. I am Selina Gomez’s no.1 fan!!!!! Sorry I hate you soooooooooo much!!!!!!

  66. Rae says:

    I am disgusted. First, Miley’s father practically signs her life away to Playboy once she hits 18, and now this?

    What a twisted and disgusting example for our children to follow!

    I don’t know about you all, but my children will NEVER watch the disney channel after all of this non-sense!

  67. samraa says:

    i love miley i wish i with her & i loe the 7 thing to the miley

  68. Alice says:

    and people wonder why there is so much teen pregnancy and other teen drama out there….apparently to these people teen is the new adult. wouldn’t suprise me if a sex tape was in the works.

  69. Rick Parsnip says:

    Oh what a lucky guy he is to have her she is a babe. Rat up a drain pipe ring a bell? Quiet sex is possible you know lol

  70. Umm, hellloo... says:

    wow, this just spells trouble.
    i can guarantee [like most people] that she’ll be pregnant soon. goodness gracious, what is wrong with the parents? really, come on. just plain stupid, everybody knows it’s not a good idea even for the teens who would never even think of doing something. you never now what happens, door open? psh.
    she’s said that she isn’t going to turn into the wacky child stars, but it looks like it’ll happen anyways. only she might even be wackier.

    & sorry to hannah-fannahs, just expressing my opinion.

  71. Kelsey says:

    Guess good ol Billy Ray’s gotta let someone else get in on the fun, eh?
    (ugh. that was so inappropriate..but I can’t help it. :P )

  72. ashlyn says:

    so what i don’t think she will be having sex with the guy if robby ray cyrus thinks its alright then its alright youse should shove your comments up your FAT ASSES and KAISER YOU ARE A SLUTTY BITCH NOT MILEY CYRUS.

  73. alex says:


  74. Why do you care says:

    I think(in my opinion) is really changed and acting like a slut. But honestly i used to like her series movie and also others plus i liked most of her songs but now “I HATE HER”.

  75. Marie says:

    you are all unbelieveable and narrow minded give them a bit of trust not all 20 years old are sex starved i’m 16 andi went out with a 21 year old and he wasn’t sex starved personally i think your all a little narrow minded how do you all not know that he hasn’t gone to her ‘we’ll go at your pace we don’t have to rush’ or ‘i would rather we wait till your 18 as i don’t want to get in trouble with the law’ none of you know so why don’t you all just back off

  76. jacky says:

    People need to grow up seriously! always bitching about myiley and her boyfriend! gosh age does not matter!! can’t you understand that..why wont you take (age does not matter) and put it on your brain! and it is not illegal to date older people or younger is illegal if you have sex! but you can still date or have a relationship..but not sex..don’t you know the legal or illegal things??? you people need to learn not a big fan of miley myself..but if she is dating a older guy..its fine..i have freinds that have older boyfriends and know one bitches them or are all over them like the people are with people need a life and if she lives or wants to live with her boyfriend its fine. just behaving good and not doing anything stupid buth other than need to stop treating miley like if she was not a person because she is and its her life not your’s so why would you care if she did wrong or right??
