And…… the secret is out!

Has Miley Cyrus had a man this whole time?

The 21-year-old pop star has reportedly been dating her album producer, Mike Will Made It, for the past nine months, according to US Weekly.

“Everybody in her circle knows they’ve been together this whole time,” a source close to Cyrus said. Another source says the couple has become “pretty serious,” even to the point where Tish Cyrus, Cyrus’ mother, calls the 25-year-old producer a “part of the family.”

The duo was apparently quick to connect after Cyrus’ split with ex-fiancé Liam Hemsworth last September. However, although they both operate in busy schedules that prevent them from eachother often, a source says they “talk and text all day, every day.”

Ironically, Cyrus’ latest album “Bangerz,” produced by her new beau, mainly draws from her relationship with Hemsworth.

“The whole album is a story of that,” Cyrus told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres in October 2013. “I think it says that with starting with ‘Adore You’ and ending with ‘Someone Else,’ I feel like you can really find this arch of growth and I didn’t even know as much until I really listened to it now that it’s done.”

Wow, there’s a plot twist! What do you think of the not-so-new couple? Tell us in the comments below!
