It's been just a week since Miley Cyrus broke up with her boyfriend of nine months, Justin Gaston, and after spending several days in sad Twitter hell, she’s moving on with her life. First the Hannah Montana star hit that classic teen rebellion milestone of piercing her nose, then she "reconnected" with ex-boyfriend Nick Jonas. 5 Tips to Move On From a Painful Breakup
But Nick might not be Miley’s rebound—LimeLife reports that Miley has been spending a lot of time with Steve Rushton, a 21-year-old Brit who plays guitar in her backing band. A source says, "Steve relocated to the US after signing his deal with Disney. Miley couldn't wait for him to move. They hit it off straight away. When they have been apart they have been spending hours instant messaging each other. She is still young but she is smitten with him. They are very much in love."

Miley seems to be following a pattern of hanging with older guys; Justin was 20 and she 15 when they began dating, and Rushton will be 22 this year. And it doesn't look like distance will be an obstacle to this May-December (er, May-September?) relationship: Steve will be traveling with Miley during her US tour this fall, and on her first tour of the UK, which she announced last week. The dates in London begin in December. Her contract with Disney also includes a fourth season of the Hannah Montana TV show, which is expected to shoot next year. Sounds like the little mini-mogul won't have much time to be heartbroken.
