Miley Cyrus was spotted with a mystery man after Liam Hemsworth denied reports that he is engaged to the "Wrecking Ball" singer, according to reports Sunday. The news comes just days after Cyrus and Hemsworth made their first public appearance since they rekindled their romance after calling off their engagement in 2012.
According to Daily Mail, Hemsworth's statement to Australian media about their engagement did not seem to have affected Cyrus. The 23-year-old was reportedly seen driving through Malibu with a mystery male friend. On Saturday, Cyrus had a ladies' lunch at Soho House in West Hollywood, California, with Hemsworth's sister-in-law Elsa Pataky, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Amid rumors that Cyrus and Hemsworth are engaged and may soon get married, "The Hunger Games" star told Australia’s TV Week on March 31: "I am not engaged, no."
Engagement rumors made the rounds in December 2015, after Cyrus was spotted sporting her old 3.5-carat engagement ring. Several reports also claimed that Cyrus was forcing Hemsworth to get married, but the latter was angry with his on-again, off-again girlfriend over her addiction.
Over the last few weeks, rumors surfaced that Hemsworth was unhappy with Cyrus' bad habits and also warned her of ending their relationship if she did not give up her addiction. According to reports, their relationship also reportedly got strained after she sent Hemsworth a sext meant for her former rumored girlfriend Victoria's Secret model Stella Maxwell.
Earlier this month, InTouch Weekly reported that Cyrus was concerned that Hemsworth will “dump her at the altar.” A friend of Cyrus told the magazine that Hemsworth might take the decision of splitting with Cyrus “because of the massive influence his family has over him.”
Despite the claim, Cyrus has recently been spotted on several occasions with Hemsworth's family. So far, the two have not responded to rumors of their troubled relationship.
