In an interview with Larry King, Joe Jonas confirmed that his brother, Nick, is dating Miley Cyrus again. Here’s how it went down: Larry asked how the boys’ love life was going, and Joe replied (for the first of many times in the interview) “we date, and we’ve always said we do.” But when Larry King asked if Joe’s girlfriend (Camilla Belle) was as famous as Nick’s, Joe replied offhandedly, “I don’t think anyone is as famous as Miley Cyrus.”
The interview came after Miley broke up with her 20-year-old boyfriend Justin Gaston last week. Miley has dated Nick before, and after both said in separate interviews that they had “reconnected,” there was speculation that they were back together. You can be sure that Disney execs are pleased about the news. Miley and the Jonas Brothers are vocal about their choice to remain virgins until marriage, but it is easier to believe when they are dating each other.
You can’t help but feel a little sorry for Justin Gaston. Although there might have been some part of him that was in the relationship with Miley for the money and the fame, he clearly cared about her. He also dealt with a lot of flack due to their age difference, and many people thought he was skeevy for it. But he was willing to put up with that to be with her. I’m sure Justin is no saint, but Miley just publicly broke up with him for her (younger) ex-boyfriend. That’s got to hurt.
There is also speculation that Miley was getting cozy off-screen with her co-star Liam Hemsworth in the movie version of the Nicholas Sparks novel The Last Song. But the “photo evidence” of them is just the two of them jetskiing. I don’t see how that means they’re hooking up, but you never know. Maybe Miley is keeping her options open.
Note by Celebitchy: Nick Jonas and Miley Cyrus had a surprise duet on stage over the weekend in an encore during the kickoff concert for the Jonas Brothers tour in Arlington, TX. The Jonas Brothers are touring with Jordin Sparks and Miley was not expected at all. Nick and Miley looked a flirty on stage and Nick even gave Miley a little kiss on the cheek afterwards.
