Miley Cyrus has been speaking publicly about her gender identity and fluid sexual orientation in recent weeks, and well, now we know why.
It seems that her increasingly candid comments about her sexuality may have been paving the way for going public with her new relationship!
Last week, Miley came out as bisexual in an interview with Time.
Yesterday, in newly-released excerpts from the interview, Miley spoke about the difficulty of "connecting" with another person of either gender.
The "Wrecking Ball" singer stressed to the magazine that she has not and will not allow gender to prevent her from forming a romantic bond.
Many suspected that Miley was hinting that she's in a relationship with a woman, and now the New York Daily News is all but confirming it.
Cyrus has been seeing Victoria's Secret model Stella Maxwell for a few months, according to the publication, and they are legitimately dating.
Sources say Miley began hooking up with Stella shortly after her breakup with Patrick Schwarzenegger, and things got serious very quickly.
“They hold hands and hug and are very comfortable together," says one insider, clearing up any gray area: "They’re definitely together."
Miley's Instagram followers have noticed that the New Zealand-born stunner has been popping up in a lot of Miley's pictures lately.
It seems she and Stella are making no effort to conceal their feelings for each other, though she has yet to confirm that this is a thing.
There's no telling if or when Miley will formally announce her new romance, but given how badly her last public relationship ended?
We imagine she may keep her fans guessing in the near future.
