    Jamie Lynn v2.0 🙄

    Tiffany: Tell me you’re joking and you arent in that much denial. Are you 15 too?

    No 20 year old man would date a teenager unless there was something in it for him. And, i’ve seen those photos of her, she isnt as pure as her fans would like to believe. her and that cute Jonas brother did the dirty.

  3. Roni says:

    I would whoop my daughter’s ass and have the “young” man arrested! But that’s just me!

  4. prissa says:

    Tiffany, get real please. Miley is busting out at the seams and it’s just a matter of time before she chunks that Disney image far and wide and goes buck wild. Her daddy is helping her along (the Vanity Fair spread, 20 yr old boyfriend, etc) so it’s really just a matter of time.

  5. CC says:

    is she above the age of consent? nope

    they are over 3 years apart. its illegeal

  6. SeVen says:

    Anyone else notice that site that CC linked has a Link for viagra next to a link for ” cool teen sites” . I pissed myself laughing.

  7. Jackie says:

    Yes, technically she is a child. That’s just asking for trouble if they allow him to stay at their house. I hope her parents don’t get all shocked and surprised when she gets knocked up.

  8. Codzilla says:

    Roni: I agree in full with your course of action.

    Anonymous Realist: If you’re referring to a (barely) 16 year old girl as a “hot little thing”, then your computer probably needs to be seized by the feds.

  9. Syko says:

    Exactly, Karen. And I have a great bridge I’m willing to sell really cheap.

  10. Shannon says:

    Yeah anyone remember Britney Spears and her virginity pledge? DIDN’T WORK OUT.

  11. Gem* says:

    I think this is pretty sick. Im not a huge miley fan but i do think its pretty sad that everyone seems to be taking advantage of her, and she’s loving the attention of it. Of course shes going to want to date a 20 year old, but its up to her PARENTS to put a stop to it! STOP being her friend, and START acting like her parents.

    And with this whole ‘virginity’ thing, i think its pure convience today. It’s sad that people mock it, for those who take it seriously.

  12. RJ says:

    Of course he approves. Look at his track record. He’s becoming the new Simpson’s father (name escapes me).

  13. hello says:

    I’m sorry, but isn’t he a statutory rapist at the minimum and a pedo at the most extreme??? ICK! How on earth can a parent not see that??? Turn on USA and catch any episode of SVU.

    Im SURE sure she’s still a virgin. I know maintaining my purity was high on my list at 15/16. 🙄

  14. Syko says:

    Kari, I hate to break this to you, but even Christians have sex.

  15. stellapurdy says:

    I would venture a guess that even though she’s 15 she probably thinks and acts much older than her age, canceling out any boyfriends in her age group.

    Hopefully she’s full aware of birth control because there’s no turning back now. You can’t unlearn what you’ve experienced or learned already.

  16. JaundiceMachine says:

    A four year age difference isn’t much between adults – my puddin’ pop is nine years my elder. But a four year age difference is HUGE when you’re a teenager. Think of the person you were when you were 16. Now think of the person you were when you were 20. Even the gap between 20 and 24 is substantial. But 16 – 20? Gross.

    Isn’t her “best friend” 20, as well? The Cyrus’ are awesome parents.

  17. hello says:


    Mature for her age? Have you ever heard this girl speak? She’s a cretin. Her parents should be ashamed.

    I am 24 and LOATHE people who are 21 (and oh so mature!) out at the bars on Christmas break.

    edit – I just realized that sounds really mean to you, which I don’t mean at all. This girl just seriously bugs me.

  18. Jinxy says:

    Gummy McCyrus will be preggo by the end of the year so she can bail on her Disney contract and have that huge singing career her talents are unaware of. She seems to not realize that she’s a homely kid who got lucky and her vocal tracks are heavily improved with pro tools, her music is written by hit factory writers.

    She won the kiddy lottery and should sock the money away while she can, so she can pay the space rental for her double wide five years from now. The lot of them are trash.

    Why would a 20 year old underwear model date a homely 15 year old? The sex is illegal, and pervy. I think they are paying him for generating some interest in a kid who’s spoiled and spiteful and looking less likely to cross over.

  19. G. says:

    Kari: If you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you. Trust me, virginity pledge or not, you can still have sex. The promise ring won’t stop sex from happening.

  20. aspen says:

    Not everyone spreads them at 16. It’s sick that her dad is promoting this relationship, but it’s not like he can stop her. By remaining positive, he keeps the ability to stay close enough to catch her when she falls. It’s the closest thing to an excuse I can create for him.

  21. abbizmal says:

    She is still 15. Isn’t her birthday in November? 15 and 20. He is after one thing. Well, maybe several things. He’s been hittin’ it for sure.

  22. aleach says:

    siiiiick! her parents love the attention this relationship is creating just as much as miley, im sure. its sooo creepy! ick.
    and to hello: lol, you HATE 21 year olds at bars? wow you are sooo mature and grown up bc you are 24 lol okayyy…just sounded pretty…funny.

  23. vdantev says:

    Whatever keeps his name in the spotlight and paychecks rolling in.

  24. Candy says:

    hmm I don’t know what to say Ms. Bitchy. The age gap is only four years (example a 24 year old dating a 28 year old), but the difference is HUGE when the girl is 16. But this girl is not 16. She’s 16 and RICH!
    So expect your average Veruka Salt-like behavior….

  25. Candy says:

    yes! Christians have sex, too. I know. I am. And I do.

  26. vdantev says:

    Sex outside of marriage is a sin. Read your Bible.

  27. Codzilla says:

    Anonymous Realist: Well, if you can legally get with a 16 year old girl in your state, then I suppose it’s your call 😳 . But since Miley is probably out of your grasp, you’ll have to stake out the local high school for a suitable replacement. One word of caution, though: On your first date, don’t be surprised if her Daddy welcomes you into their home with a baseball bat to the head.

  28. SeVen says:

    Purity Ring = Vaginal Diaphram Ring? Just a thought

  29. Rez says:

    And here, I understand.

    Every person who has any relationship with one of the opposite sex must be having SEX with them.

    Every person who enjoys the company of anyone of another gender has their parts in their parts… NO EXCEPTION!!

  30. DLR says:

    Let’s visit the California Penal Code Section 261.5:

    For the purposes of this section, “minor” is a person under the age of 18 years and an “adult” is a person who is at least 18 years of age.

    (a) Unlawful sexual intercourse is an act of sexual intercourse accomplished with a person who is not the spouse of the perpetrator, if the person is a minor

    (d) Any person over the age of 21 years who engages in an act of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor who is under 16 years of age is guilty of either a misdemeanor or a felony, and shall be punished by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year, or by
    imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or four years.

    Statutory rape is illegal sexual activity between two people when it would otherwise be legal if not for their age. However, dating someone without sexual contact cannot be considered a form of statutory rape, and is almost never illegal. All states have an “age of consent,” or an age at which a person can legally consent to sexual activity and can then no longer be a victim of statutory rape. Therefore Miss Miley needs to be 18 in order to legally consent to sexual activity.

    Are we saying this 20-year old man is not fiddling with Miss Miley and won’t fiddle with her for the next two years? Yeah, pull the other finger. 😛

  31. dumdee says:

    this kinda reminds me of the whole hilary duff joel madden thing. but them pairing together was kinda sweet and genuine. for this case, there seems to be an ulterior motive. i dont know, but thats how i see it

  32. Alecto says:

    Anonymous Realist,
    You sound like a pedo. Your also waaaayyy miss informed. 15 is not the legal age of consent and nor is 16. NO MATTER WHAT STATE YOU LIVE IN. I live in La. 17 is the age of consent AS LONG AS the older person is not a teacher or boss or anybody in a position of authority. The local pedo club is not a place to get law facts.

    Billy Ray Cyrus are gonna be “Poor Pitiful Me” in a few years when this train wreck turns into another Britney and Lindsey. They didn’t see it coming. Had no idea why she turned out like that. However the rest of america are gonna be peeing themselves from laughing.

  33. Jeane says:

    Oh please.
    Have you ever met a 20 year old boy? Most 20 year old boys I’ve known have the maturity level of 16 year old girls.
    If you raised your kids to be smart and confident about themzelves, you can trust them to make the right decision about sex. I know I did and I have always dated older boys/men since I was 16.

    Miley doesn’t seem very smart so there is a good chance she will end up like Jamie Lynn. But 16 year old boys can get you pregnant too, so does it really matter?

  34. Genevieve says:

    Let’s not forget they’re from the south. I think it’s socially acceptable for underage girls to date older men there. And of course it’s totally cool for young girls to get pregnant like J.Spears did, who is also from the south.

  35. Bored with this says:

    From Anon. Realist:

    “Codzilla – seized? why? She’s not only a hot little thing, but she’s also legal in almost every US state (including mine.)

    Most of you are so ignorant of the law. Google “age of consent” please, and stop perpetuating myths. ”

    The dude is FOUR years older. The California law states THREE or more years will get you jail time. It does not matter if the age of consent is 16 in certain states, the point is if the CHILD (yes, still a child until declared adult, check that link again) has sex with someone THREE or more years older than her, it is statutory rape.

    Her boyfriend is four years older, so while you may think she is old enough to consent, he’d still get jail time. Do your own googling, before you speak about things you are not aware of. There are many fine lines in the laws, and I can only think you tweak them for your benefit, seeing how you keep referring to MC as this “hot” thing.

    If she came to your state, since according to you she is of the age of consent, if you had a sexual relationship with her and were three or more years older, you would go to jail. She would be able to consent to having sex, but not with an older perv. Chew on that, and please don’t act all holier than thou because you seem to think you have a (creeeeepy) view of how laws work.

    Google is your friend. 😀

  36. Alecto says:

    News flash everybody SHE’S 15!!! Not 16. Dude is 5 years older than her. Her birthdate is November 23, 1992. That’s a month and a half away. All these sweet 16 bday parties are publicity stunts. AND IN NO STATE IS IT LEGAL FOR A 20 YEAR OLD TO DIDDLE A 15 YEAR OLD!!!

  37. pinky says:

    It’s not just about sex guys. Even if they never have sex, there is something to be said about a young girl getting mixed up in a more mature relationship with someone who is, well, a man. Teenagers don’t need to have the drama of adult relationships. The difference in relationship experience and life experience is probably huge at this point, and the opportunity for manipulation is also there. Despite how much maturity and sophistication you may gain as a child star, and despite how immature 20-yr. old guys tend to be, there is still life experience that only age will bring.

  38. Scott says:

    Given the way Daddy posed with daughter, it doesn’t surprise me that he would let his 15 year old daughter date a 20 year old. What is with these parents flirting with statutory rape? Deplorable!

  39. Mick says:

    Shit, I wish Miley would temporarily dump the dude and send him to me! If he’s “man” enough for Billy Ray, I wanna have at him! Just for a coupla hours – then I’d send him back to Miley. Heh.

  40. stax says:

    Of course Billy Ray would say “he’s got a lot of determination”…there’s only 1 thing Justin is determined to do….if he hasn’t already.

    Where oh where is Chris Hansen from Dateline when you need him?

  41. goodwolf says:

    Although I can understand everyone’s concern over a typical 20 year old man and an almost 16 year old girl, as long as these two are being monitored most the time, not much should happen. How much time do you think super-star Miley is actually alone (for security reasons if nothing else)? I think Miley has real talent and will be one of the few tween stars that make the leap to adult success (Hilary Duff among others have not found that transition so easy), and this relationship could be as much for show and publicity as anything else. Miley is a huge star for Disney, but is anxious to start being accepted as more of a young adult and by dating a 20 year old man helps build that image. In truth, I actually doubt it’s a real relationship.

  42. Alecto says:

    Uhhh…She’s alone enough to take pics of herself in underwear and post them on myspace. That’s how alone she is.

  43. bella says:

    genevieve, why do you feel the need to perpetuate such ridiculous (although popular) stereotypes of southern people?

    please, please don’t judge those of us who ARE southern and ARE NOT trailer trash by those few famous trashy girls who hail from the south.

    they’re nothing more than hillbilly f*ing trailer trash who got seriously lucky.

    and no, the southern people that aren’t trailer trash do NOT allow their young daughters to date much older men, and it is NOT popular nor is it socially acceptable for young girls to get knocked up a la J.L. Spears, thank you very much.

  44. G. says:

    No Kari, she’s not. When you post pics of yourself half naked in a shower for your boyfrined, virgin or not, you are DEFINATELY not innocent.

  45. Hollz says:

    when I was 15, my best friend was a 21-year old male. Mere months after I turned 16 we started dating…and go figure, it was COMPLETELY legal…why? The age of consent here in Canada is 16 federally. (In my province it’s actually 14 for a few more months- I’m pretty sure it’s going up to 16 in 2009) Frankly, I think that it’s ridiculous that people think that there is so much of a difference in 16 year old girl and a 20-something male- because maturity-wise, they are about the same. I had something else to write…but grey’s came on 😀

  46. j says:

    your all dumb. shes 15. she has to be 18 or its ILLEGAL!!!!!! statutory rape!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hes over 18 shes not. illegal and in my opinion werid no matter how hot shes just to young still

  47. j says:

    there doing it in disney land. california is 18

  48. Jeanne says:

    Billy Ray would approve of anything that generates money or publicity for his little horse-toothed cash cow. So what if Miley has sex or an older boyfriend. Miley needn’t worry. We now know Britney engaged in sex at a young age. And with Jamie Lynn laying the groundwork for teen pregnancy, if Disney’s not worried, why should Mullet Daddy be?

  49. That One Chick says:

    WTF this is soo messed up in so many ways!! Altho i have absolutly no room to talk im 15 and im goin out with a 19 year-old…most guys are perverted and only want one thing…but some are genuine….Yall never kno mileys guy mite not be that bad…dont get me wrong tho i hate all of her music and absolutly cring at the thot of watching Disney channel

  50. joanne says:

    Um i would like to say something in favor of miss cyrus and the young man in question. first off down south age of consent is 16, remember she lives there too. also just because he is 20 does not mean he wants just sex from her, i was 17 when i met my kids’ father he was 33 we were together almost 2 years before we became sexual and trust me i tried lol. But you all need to realize there really are good wholesome young men out there who don’t think about sex all the time and can be respectful of a young lady. Miley is a teenager and yes he is 20 but in most states with parental consent statutory laws are over looked. Give it a rest he could be as wholesome as the POPE or not who knows it is Miley and her family’s business. If she wasn;t in the celebrity spot light none of you would even know about her relationship nor would you give a rats ass about who she is with or how old. Teenagers like Miley make mistakes all the time so before you judge her over a bf or leaked pics i would concern your self with what your own so called pure and wholesome lil girl is doing behind your back, atleast miley isnt keeping her relationship a secret from her parents and he had the dignity to get her folks consent.
