Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson aren’t being warned by friends that they’re moving too quickly in their relationship. It’s just more nonsense about the pop star from one tabloid. Gossip Cop found it false.

OK! alleges “friends are begging” Cyrus to “pump the brakes” on her new relationship with Simpson. A week after Cyrus was initially photographed kissing the fellow musician, she confirmed his status as her boyfriend in a social media post. This, says the tabloid, frustrated her friends and family.

“Miley’s had a crazy few months,” an anonymous source tells the magazine. “She announced her divorce from Liam [Hemsworth] in August, then jumped right into a serious romance with Kaitlynn [Carter]. After they broke up, she immediately hooked up with Cody.”

“Miley should be focusing on healing right now — everyone’s begging her to slow things down with Cody,” the supposed insider adds. “She seems obsessed with Cody. When they’re together, their chemistry is like a live wire — it’s hot. They can’t keep their hands off each other!”

According to the outlet, those close to Cyrus aren’t confident in her latest relationship. “This has become a pattern. Miley jumps in and out of serious relationships to avoid dealing with her real feelings,” the tipster says. “It seems as though she can’t be alone and single. It’s like she wants someone in her life to help her forget her troubles, when what she really needs is therapy to help her process her emotions in a healthy way.”

That being said, the generous source adds that it’s Simpson, not Cyrus, who’s in danger of getting hurt. “Miley’s all over him now, but friends don’t believe she’s truly in love with him,” adds the tipster. “Cody may think they have something special, but it’s just a matter of time until she gets bored and winds up in the arms of someone else.”

Gossip Cop ran the claims by our source in Cyrus’ camp, who dismisses it as fiction. It’s merely a series of incorrect assumptions from the tabloid based on what’s been posted online and under the disguise of “insider” information. Cyrus even addressed the gossip media’s obsession with her relationship status in a series of tweets earlier this month after the initial photos of her and Simpson were published.

“I know the public feels invested in my past relationship because they felt like they saw it through from the beginning,” Cyrus wrote. “I am grown now and make choices as an adult knowing the truth/details/reality. People only ‘know’ what they see on the internet.” Cyrus then pointed out the hypocrisy of those who shame her for dating multiple people in a certain span of time but remain silent when male celebrities do the exact same thing.

The singer also emphasized that she refuses to hide any of her dates to avoid the rumors that may surface from any romantic outing.  “I refuse to recluse and ‘date’ from home,” she added. “I would like to share an activity with someone I am dating and not be stuck at home with pretty much nothing to do but ‘Netflix and chill.'” The pop star acknowledged that her fame comes with the privacy tradeoff and that she’d never trade her life for anyone else’s, but that doesn’t stop her from feeling frustrated with the nonstop gossip. “Get used to me dating,” she concluded, “this is where I am at!”

The tabloid’s latest claims about having insight from those closest to Cyrus is highly reminiscent of its piece from September 2017, when it was falsely reported that Cyrus’ family was worried that Hemsworth was after her money. Additionally, Gossip Cop called out OK!‘s Australian edition for a bogus story about Cyrus being pregnant at the 2018 Grammys. The magazine’s “sources” seem to be capable of only providing falsehoods and incorrect “insights.”
