Miley Cyrus is helping Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez house hunt, according to an untrue report. Gossip Cop can bust the story. While the couple spends a fair amount of time together, they're not looking to buy a home together, nor is Cyrus involved in their relationship.
The seemingly made-up claims appear in the current issue of Life & Style, which alleges that not only have Bieber and Gomez been "searching for a love nest," but they've already set "their eyes on Malibu" as the location. It's specifically claimed they're "looking to spend about $20 million on an oceanfront home." A so-called "insider" is quoted as saying, "Selena and Justin want to start fresh. Justin loves Malibu and Selena finds beach life therapeutic."
How does Cyrus figure into these purported plans? Well, the tabloid contends Bieber and Gomez have looked to an "area expert for guidance," namely the pop star. "Miley's lived in Malibu for years," notes the supposed source, asserting, "She's happy to help Selena and Justin out." The gossip magazine goes on to point out that Gomez and Cyrus, both former child stars who came to fame through the Disney Channel, have "feuded in the past," but maintains they've since "made up." And now "Miley's been telling Selena about her go-to places and secret hideaways," claims the publication's alleged tipster.
Cyrus bought her own place in Malibu in 2016, and her fellow performers have been known to spend time in the coastal area over the years. In fact, Bieber and Gomez even crashed a wedding in Malibu way back in 2011. But Gossip Cop hears from a source, who wasn't authorized to comment on the record, that they have no plans to jointly own a residence in the city. On the contrary, Bieber just started renting a pad in West Hollywood. And while he and Gomez spend time at each other's homes, they are not officially living together.
It's worth noting the tabloid has been wrong on this subject for quite some time. In mid-November, just after the couple reunited, the magazine falsely claimed Bieber and Gomez were "already hunting for a home so they can move in together" before marrying. In that tale, the desired locale was Calabasas, not Malibu. Just a few weeks later, the outlet inaccurately alleged Bieber had "moved into" into Gomez's house and was living with her. That was bogus, too, and given that the stars have been seen coming and going from each other's separate houses in the months since then, it's clear Gossip Cop was right to bust both articles.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
