It seems like just yesterday when Miley Cyrus was married to her longtime on-and-off partner, Liam Hemsworth. However, her relationship with Hemsworth is old news now as the 26-year-old singer is currently dating blogger/reality star Kaitlynn Carter.

While Cyrus has every right to pursue love and happiness for herself, some people think that she and Carter might be moving too fast. So what is their relationship like and should the couple slow it down a little? Here’s what we know.

When did Miley Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter get together?

Cyrus and Carter have never revealed when exactly they began dating. However, they were first seen together in early August around the time that both of them announced they were breaking up with previous partners.

Carter was with Brody Jenner for several years, and the two of them even had a wedding ceremony in Indonesia. They never officially obtained a marriage license, but Carter and Jenner announced that they had decided to “amicably separate” on August 2.

A week later, Carter was spotted kissing Cyrus in Italy. This came just hours before news of Cyrus’ divorce from Liam Hemsworth hit the internet.

While onlookers believe that Cyrus and Carter got together after breaking up with their respective partners, Spencer Pratt — Jenner and Carter’s infamous co-star on The Hills: New Beginnings — believes that the two women “already had something going on” for months beforehand.

Pratt told Cosmopolitan: “It’s tough for me to listen to Kaitlynn complain about people talking about her allegedlyopen relationship with Brody when we know she had a thing going with Miley. She already had something going on with her when these scenes were filming—maybe not physically, but definitely emotionally.”

Did Cyrus and Carter move in together?

Cyrus and Carter have not spoken out much about their relationship, but a source told People in early September that the pair is currently living together.

“They live together and are very happy,” the insider shared. “Miley is doing great. She is moving on. She seems to have no regrets. She loves being with Kaitlynn.”

Another source also told the publication: “Miley is very close with Kaitlynn. It’s romantic, but also a friendship. They are both going through similar stuff right now and are bonding over it.”

Are Cyrus and Carter moving too fast?

It’s clear that Cyrus and Carter are very smitten with one another, but some people believe that the pair is moving at such a quick pace that might not be too healthy for their relationship.

There is a possibility that Cyrus herself might be letting her emotions take control of her, which she was known to do back when she was still with Liam Hemsworth. In fact, she married Hemsworth in December 2018 almost out of nowhere, and some onlookers noted that they might have made the rash decision after being consumed by emotions following the destruction of their house in a California wildfire.

Cyrus and Carter’s romance could also be a rebound relationship controlled by emotions, which actually is not good news for fans who want the couple to last. Rebound relationships that start too quickly after a breakup can often be a way for people to not have to deal with their raw, negative feelings. However, this is not a smart way to handle a breakup, which is why rebounds do not last very long.

Additionally, Cyrus and Carter’s relationship is very physical, which is, again, not a good sign. Gerald Matiri from Panda Gossips shared that rebound relationships with a lot of physical intimacy could be a way for people to get some sort of connections that they are missing from their exes.

Of course, that is not to say that Cyrus and Carter are doomed to breakup soon. There is a lot of work needed to keep a rebound relationship from failing, and only time will tell whether the two of them can make their romance last.
