Miley Cyrus and Yungblud are not embarking on a romance, a source has told.
The Midnight Sky singer, 28, and 23-year-old Cotton Candy musician – real name Dominic Harrison – were seen partying together in West Hollywood on Thursday.
Snaps obtained by The Daily Mail showed the pair looking very comfortable in one another’s company as they let loose at the Rainbow Bar & Grill.
And despite the two music makers appearing cosy, an insider has told PEOPLE that the duo’s relationship is strictly platonic and that Miley and Yungblud are “just friends.”
The pair and other pals headed out this week to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Hannah Montana – the Disney series that shot Miley to stardom.
Nothing Breaks Like a Heart hitmaker Miley shared a gallery of her own snaps from the night on the town on her Instagram page.
She penned alongside the post: “HANNAHVERSARY X HAPPYBIRTHDAY PARTY! x Hannah’s personal photographer @vijatm.”
In the photos, she could be seen wearing a Hannah Montana T-shirt that had been customised into a daring crop top.
Miley continued her ensemble with denim jeans decorated with a floral motif and gave a nod to early 2000s fashion by wrapping a pale pink studded belt around her hips.
Earlier this week, the American star penned a letter to her old alter-ego Hannah Montana as she reflected on the 15th anniversary of the sitcom.
In an Instagram post, she wrote about how formative this period of her life on the show was for her and how important the character was to her.
In the letter, dated March 23 on Hannah Montana-branded paper, Miley shared her thoughts with the character of Hannah all these years later.
Miley wrote: “Hi Hannah,It’s been a while. 15 years to be exact.”
She added: Since the first time I slid those blonde bangs over my forehead in the best attempt to conceal my identity. Then slipped into a puke pink terry cloth robe with a bedazzled HM over [heart symbol].
“I didn’t know then…that is where you live forever.
“Not just in mine but millions of people around the world. Although you are considered to be an “alter ego” in reality there was a time in my life when you held more of my identity in your glove than I did in my bare hands.
“We had an equal exchange in which you provided a superlative amount of fame in return for the anonymity I could gift to you,” she continued.
“But, a lot has changed since then. You were like a rocket that flew me to the moon + never brought me back down. I couldn’t have imagined when taping myself singing ‘I Love Rock N Roll’ against a white wall in my mum’s friend’s kitchen in Nashville, the name typed in marquee style letters on the front of a first draft script would make my wildest dreams a reality.”
The singer then reflected on how she lost her paternal grandfather while filming the first season of Hannah Montana.
Miley went on: “You and I have been through it all together my friend. We’ve shared many firsts. A lot of lasts. Ups. Downs. Tears + Laughs. I lost my pappy, my Dad’s father while on set filming an early episode of season 1.
“He wanted to hold on long enough to catch the premiere on March 24th. He passed February 28th. He did get to see the commercial that ran during High School Musical which he claimed was one of the proudest moments in his lifetime + he was a badass democratic state legislature.
“My heart was broken but fulfilled to know i could carry his name beside my dad’s through every credit.
“I experienced falling in love for the first time in those years,” she goes on.
“Embarrassingly started my period in a pair of white capris. Of course on the day a ‘cute guy’ was cast + asked to have lunch with me. Instead I spent it in the bathroom with my Mom sobbing + scrambling to find a pair of fresh denim.”
Miley then paid tribute to other faces over the years who played a role in her time on the show, including co-stars and her parents.

“Well besides my dad who I drove to work with everyday until my Mom let me buy a Prius. Which then I was only 15 with a permit so my co-pilot was my grandmother “Mammie” who ran my fan club MileyWorld out of the dressing room kitchen I shared my my Dad until our last day in 2011.”
The pop star then looked back at the end of the show and what it meant for her.
“I will never forget,” she went on. “It was bittersweet to know I would be leaving you (a huge piece of me) behind in Stage 9. Which is where I say I grew up when asked. It was my home.

“The finale episode was appropriately titled ‘Wherever I Go’ after a final song by the teen pop sensation herself. You. Me? Hannah Montana. The first verse sings; Everything is about to change. A chapter ending but the stories only just begun. A page is turning for everyone’.
“And then closes on a soaring chorus belting ‘We might be apart but I hope you always know you’ll be with me wherever I go’.
“Hannah, I hope you hear me + believe those words are true. You have all my love + utmost gratitude.
“Breathing life into you for those 6 years was an honour. I am indebted not only to you Hannah but to Any + everyone who believed in me from the beginning. You all have my loyalty + deepest appreciation until the end. With all sincerity I say Thank You!”
“To Disney’s entire team, all fellow cast members, special guests, crew, agents + managers, Especially my Mommy who took me to every lesson + audition even when it required leaving town or making a cross country move which my siblings so selflessly underwent.”
“Not a day goes by I forget where I came from,” noted the singer. “A building in Burbank, California with a room full of people with the power to fulfill my destiny. And that they did.
“They gave me you. The greatest gift a girl could ask for.”
She ended the note: “I love you Hannah Montana. Forever, Miley”.
