Miley Cyrus, who recently said that it’s her “job to be a role model,” has proven yet again that she’s a piss poor one. Cyrus’ 19 year-old boyfriend and co-star, Liam Hemsworth, is living with Miley after she told her parents she’d move out if they didn’t allow it. This is the second of Miley’s boyfriends to move in with her and her family. Miley’s then 20-year-old boyfriend, Justin Gaston, was staying with the Cyrus family in 2008. Billy Ray and Laticia weren’t entirely permissive of their then 16 year-old daughter’s relationship with an older guy – she had to keep the door to her bedroom open at all times. I’m sure that worked!
Now that Miley is 17 and living with her next boyfriend her parents have told her that they can’t share the same bedroom. Sounds like they really put their foot down.
The 17-year-old Hannah Montana star recently moved hunky Australian actor Liam Hemsworth into her family’s Toluca Lake, Calif., home – after informing her parent’s she’d move out if she didn’t get her way!
“In the end, Billy Ray and Miley’s mom, Tish, decided they’d rather have Miley under their roof with Liam than not knowing where she is at night,” a family friend told The Enquirer.
But they did insist on separate bedrooms!

Miley is 17 years old. How can she threaten to move out if she’s not legally able to? I remember how well the “keep the bedroom door open” request worked when I was 17. It doesn’t take long to get up to something if you’re motivated. I guess we can’t expect much more from Miley’s family. They let their 10 year-old daughter dress like a tart and get videotaped doing sexy dances. Miley is just getting away with what she can.
Billy Ray has said that he’s Miley’s friend first, then her dad. Most dads would be more protective of their daughter. If Miley ends up like Jamie Lynn Spears will her dad still consider her his buddy first, or will he rethink his “teenagers will be teenagers” parenting strategy?
