Miley CyrusÂ is no stranger to provoking strong reactions, and she did just that when she posed for a photo with her hand down new boyfriend Cody Simpsonâ€™s trousers on social media recently.
In a selfie shared by Simpson on his Instagram account, the Donâ€™t Call Me Angel singer looked as loved-up as ever as she nuzzled into the Australian musicianâ€™s shoulder with her hand tucked into his trouser front. Later, Cyrus commented on the snap: â€œNeed. Oxygen. Canâ€™t. Breathe. I. Stan. For. Ever. Ship.â€
â€œDeath do us,â€ Simpson wrote back.
The pair were seemingly showing off their new â€˜matchingâ€™ ink, with Simpson sporting a skull and crossbones tattoo and Cyrus getting a realistic-looking heart, with a bleeding dagger passing through it and a banner that reads, â€˜Rock N Roll heart.â€™
The formerâ€™s was a nod to 1973 crime drama Papillon, while celebrity tattoo artist Nico Bassill took inspiration from Billy Idol for Cyrusâ€™s design.
Fans were shocked to see the couple in such an intimate setting and took to the comments section to share their surprise.
“MILEY WTF UR HAND,â€ a particularly stunned follower replied. â€œItâ€™s not even 9AM!!!,â€ one more exclaimed.
â€œExcuse me what,â€ another wrote, as a fourth said: â€œYou Hollywood folk sure get through s*** partners quickly.â€
â€œCody your mother follows you,â€ a fifth lectured. Elsewhere, another joked: “Your girlfriend’s got her hands full ðŸ˜ðŸ”¥.”
â€œHoly chill out. We get it you donâ€™t have to pee on him to claim your turf girl,â€ another added.
Simpson and Cyrus have been romantically linked since they were spotted eating sushi together earlier this month. Their relationship comes afterÂ the latterâ€™s six-week fling with Kaitlynn CarterÂ following her separation from former husband Liam Hemsworth.
Simpson, 22, seemed to confirm toÂ PeopleÂ that heâ€™s dating the Wrecking Ball hitmaker at the Tiffany & Co. Mens Launch in Los Angeles last week, saying: â€œIâ€™m very happy. We are very, very happy. Sheâ€™s creative. Sheâ€™s very passionate about what she does, and Iâ€™m very similar in that sense. Thatâ€™s why we get along so well.â€
