Who Is Stella Maxwell, Miley Cyrus’ Rumored Girlfriend?
Stella Maxwell, a Victoria’s Secret Angel, is rumored to be the new girlfriend of pop singer Miley Cyrus, who recently talked about her bisexuality.
Who Is Stella Maxwell?
After Cyrus opened up about her sexuality in a number of interviews, it was reported that since splitting from Patrick Schwarzenegger, she’s been seeing model Maxwell. “They hold hands and hug and are very comfortable together. They’re definitely together,” a source told the New York Daily News, adding that friends of the two refer to them as “a couple.”
The pair first connected back in March. When Maxwell was asked how they met, she quipped that it was through same-sex dating app Grindr.
“We met through Grindr,” Maxwell told V Magazine, before explaining, “We met through mutual friends via Instagram, which is where Cheyne contacted me about taking some photos. It’s been a trip to hang out and see a little of their world. Felt very organic and right.”
Since then, Maxwell and Cyrus have been nearly inseparable – from SXSW in Austin, to trips to Vegas and getting spotted in L.A. and New York City. Over the last few months, they’ve been prominently featured on each other’s Instagram pages.
Maxwell, 24, was born in Belgium to Irish parents, and moved to New Zealand in her teenage years. She went on to study at the University of Otago but dropped out after she was discovered to launch her modeling career. She made her debut as a Victoria’s Secret model at the 2014 show, and officially became an Angel in 2015.
Maxwell has since modeled for Alexander McQueen, Urban Outfitters, Marc Jacobs, Moschino, H&M, Puma and more. She’s appeared in the pages of Elle, Glamour, Interview and Vogue UK.
Neither Cyrus nor Maxwell, who were last spotted out together in New York over the weekend, have commented on the rumors regarding their relationship.
