This Is What REALLY Happened Between Miley Cyrus and Kellan Lutz

Kellan Lutz Denies Dating Miley Cyrus
The actor responds to dating rumors.

Remember when Miley Cyrus supposedly dated Kellan Lutz for a hot minute after ending her engagement with Liam Hemsworth in 2014? Apparently, there’s more to that story.

According to Lutz, his relationship with Cyrus has been nothing but platonic. Though they were photographed stepping off a private plane after vacationing together in the Bahamas, the Twilight actor insists that they were not a romantic item at the time.

“We never dated,” Lutz tells Entertainment Tonight. “It was hearsay, that was all gossip stuff.”

In fact, the 30-year-old star is happy that Cyrus and Hemsworth are now back together after more than two years apart. Talking about the relationship, Lutz explains that he understands why the Last Song co-stars needed to be away from one another.

“It’s something that I’ve even gone through in relationships,” Lutz says. “You can date someone and it’s not necessarily healthy because both people are growing. Then you kind of reconnect years later.”I’m so happy for her and Liam,” he adds. “I hope they’re very happy and it lasts forever, ’cause they’re both beautiful people.”

Cyrus and Hemsworth reconciled early this year after spending time together over the holidays. The two have since moved in together and reportedly gotten re-engaged.
