Miley Cyrus has fuelled rumours she is dating fellow teen star Cody Linley, after the pair was spotted leaving the actor's Los Angeles apartment late at night.
In the past Cyrus has confessed her crush on the 18 year old, who plays her love interest in TV show Hannah Montana.
She once said, "He is so much fun to look at. He's really fun and down to earth. And he's hot!"
Linley was dating Camp Rock actress Demi Lovato until their recent split - and gossips claims 15-year-old Cyrus has pounced on the newly-single hunk.
They were snapped as Linley drove the pair away from his L.A. pad on 2 September (08). An onlooker says, "Cody opened the door of his Mustang for Miley, who had a huge smile on her face. She couldn't keep her eyes off him."
But Linley insists he and Cyrus are just good friends: "She came over, and Miley, my roommate and I all painted. We splatter-painted. Right now, we're just very close friends."
