Miley Cyrus separated from Liam Hemsworth and, shortly after that new broke, was spotted making out with Brody Jenner's ex, Kaitlynn Carter.
Now, Kaitlynn's ex's castmate, Brandon, is taking cheap shots at Miley and Kaitlynn for their apparent tryst.
He now explains that he's only giving them a hard time because he thinks that they're fake.
"Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today," Brody advised his fans and followers in a thoughtful Instagram post.
But his castmate, Brandon Thomas Lee, isn't so eager to let go of the past.
Naturally, he's approaching the situation with humor in a very public comment.
"Let’s round this scandal out and post a pic of us making out," Brandon suggests.
"Watch out!" Brody then warns. "Pics of Liam and I holding hands on the beach coming soon."
Miley saw this and had some advice for Brody, with whose ex she has been gal pal-ing around.
"Go take a nap in your truck," Miley advises. "And cool off."
She then captions: "#HotGirlSummer."
Hot Girl Summer has been a catchphrase this year for women yearning to enjoy their best lives, from having adventures to just plain getting laid.
Miley has clearly been having quite the hot girl summer herself.
On Daily Pop, Brandon explains exactly why he decided that Miley and Kaitlynn's quality time with each other is so entertaining.
"I was just like, ‘This is getting out of hand,'" Brandon expresses.
He continues: "This whole thing is just so, like -- I don’t know."
"I didn’t even want to get involved with it," Brandon confesses.
He then shares his own theory: "It just seems so fake to me."
"It’s just like -- why?" Brandon continues, expressing his bewilderment at everyone's behavior.
He believes that it can all be explained: "They’re just obviously messing with their two ex-husbands."
"And they’re all friends," Brandon points out. "So, it’s like, they were all friends. So, why -- it just seems so ridiculous to me."
He then found a little shade to throw in Miley's direction.
"I was just curious as of why this blew up so much," Brandon confesses. "And I forgot Miley has so many fans."
Way harsh, dude.
Now, Brandon isn't claiming to have any special inside knowledge here.
He's just pointing out that, well, it looks like Miley and Kaitlynn are boosting each other in the news, not boffing each other.
That would certainly pull one over on their exes and possibly help their brands.
Some have accused Brandon's suspicions of being inherently homophobic or biphobic.
I'm going to have to disagree, there -- he could 100% be saying the same thing if it were Liam and Kaitlynn making out.
Miley and Liam first became an item way back in 2008 when they worked together.
Several years later, they became engaged ... only to drop the engagement.
Miley went through a dramatic rebirth and rebranding (maybe a couple of them).
Longtime fans were overjoyed when they reunited and resumed their engagement, and were over the moon when the two finally got married.
But now, Miley and Liam have separated after about eight months of marriage.
It may be some time before the dust settled enough for the world to know exactly what broke them up.
