The latest romantic link up for Miley Cyrus: Singer Cody Simpson.
The pair have been spotted together in recent days, kissing and cuddling and generally enjoying each other's company in a more-than-friends capacity. On Saturday, Simpson shared a picture of him and Miley on his Instagram story, captioned, "pre swim breakfast courtesy of baby."

Well played, Miley. Well played.
