The plot thickens! Miley Cyrus has hung out with the girl — who has been identified by TMZ as Natalie — who got way too close with the singer’s boyfriend Patrick Schwarzenegger in Cabo San Lucas during spring break. Back in November 2014, shortly after Us Weekly exclusively revealed the pair were dating, Cyrus attended a University of Southern California football game with Schwarzenegger — and Natalie was part of their crew.
Which makes sense, because the USC student, who did body shots off of Natalie in those talked-about photos, explained she was just a friend in his Twitter defense. "Omg. It's one of my best friends girlfriend...” Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son, 21, tweeted. "Would NEVER do anything against my GF....." he continued, denying that he had cheated on the “Wrecking Ball” singer. "Girls have guy friends and guys have friends that are girls..."
What’s still unclear is whether Cyrus is down with her beau’s “best friend’s girlfriend.” After the wild pictures surfaced, Cyrus, 22, spent time with her mom Tish Cyrus and posted a cryptic message on Instagram. "Monday margaritaZzzz with my mama," the star wrote on Instagram, along with a quote that read: “Surround yourself with people that reflect who you want to be and how you want to feel, energies are contagious.”
But the songstress didn’t seem too stressed. Later that night she donned a skintight backless jumpsuit for a night out at The Laugh Factory in West Hollywood, where she was photographed smiling from ear to ear. A source also tells Us that the snaps might not be a big deal. “Patrick’s not worried about Miley making assumptions about the photos,” an insider says.
