VIDEO: Justin Gaston Lends Miley Cyrus a Hand

Miley Cyrus has played coy about her relationship with Justin Gaston in the past. At times, she’s rather disingenuously characterized the 20-year-old underwear model as a “family friend.”

But the 16-year-old Hannah Montana star appears to be opening up about her intentions with the hunky skivvies-shiller.

Last night the two enjoyed a date at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills, and weren’t shy about displaying their affection for each other.

The two even held hands as they exited their car and headed into the restaurant.

Which either means they’re ready to admit that they’re boyfriend and girlfriend, or Justin doesn’t think Miley’s old enough to walk in the road by herself yet.

Nice to see young love blossom so openly. But Miley might want to back off on the hand-holding. After all, we’ve all seen where Justin’s hands have been.
