They may have been overshadowed by the suspicious death of Jeffrey Epstein, but Miley Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter were easily the second biggest story on social media over the weekend.
In case you somehow missed the drama, it all unfolded like this:
Miley and Liam Hemsworth announced that they had separated after less than a year of marriage.
Shortly thereafter, photos of Miley making out with Kaitlynn Carter began to make their way around social media.
Kaitlynn recently broke up with Brody Jenner of The Hills/"being a Jenner" fame.
We later learned that the pic of Carter and Cyrus locking lips was actually taken before Miley and Liam announced their split.
It's a lot to take in, but basically, the upshot of all this is that last week, Kaitlynn was a Z-list reality star who had recently parted ways with a D-list reality star, and now she's one of the most googled people on the internet.
It seems the millions who are currently searching Kaitlynn's name mainly have two questions -- who the hell is she? And is she actually dating Miley?
We'll do our best to answer them here and spare you any further confusion over Kait-gate.
For starters, Carter is a 30-year-old fashion blogger, because of course she is.
Kaitlynn kicked off her "digital diary" entitled Hey, Ms. Carter in 2014, but she hasn't updated since July of this year, when she posted about designing her own wedding dress.
Ending your half-assed business venture within weeks of marrying a wealthy pseudo-celeb is some of the most shameless clout-chasing we've ever seen, and we commend Kaitlynn for it.
Unfortunately, she messed up in one crucial respect, as it seems that she and Brody were never legally married.
That means Kait will never get a piece of that sweet Jenner fortune -- but as a consolation prize, she did get a piece of Miley.
Prior to this weekend, Carter's biggest claim to fame was a few scenes on The Hills reboot.
Now, the whole internet knows her name (or at least the portions of the internet who didn't spend all weekend wondering how an inmate on suicide watch could possibly commit suicide without the guards knowing!).
As for what the future holds for Kaitlynn and Miley, for now, at least, it looks like their hookup was nothing more than that.
Both are fresh from very serious relationships, and we would be very surprised if anything serious developed there.
But you never know -- after all, Miley is unpredictable and Kaitlynn has nothing to lose!
