While neither Miley Cyrus nor Justin Gaston has publicly revealed they are dating, her singer father Billy Ray Cyrus has given him a seal of approval to date his famous daughter, praising him as a good guy. "He actually reminds me a lot of myself when I was 20 years old and I was living and searching for the dream," Access Hollywood cited Billy as saying.

Above all, Billy considers the male model as a man who "got a great heart and soul, and a lot of determination" adding "I think that's the true measure of a man, is when you measure his heart." Recalling the day when he met Justin for the first time, the country music singer revealed, "Justin's a good friend. A good friend of the family. I met Justin as I was hosting Nashville Star and I introduced the two of them. He's a good kid. Great heart. Lives for the light and he's very talented" and continued saying Miley and Justin's love relationship is "a good thing".

Justin joined Miley on Sunday, October 5 for her early 16th birthday celebration. Avoiding the purple carpet rush on the so-called "Sweet 16 - Share the Celebration" held at California's Disneyland, he joined Billy on stage on a rendition of "Achy Breaky Heart." He and Miley were spotted cuddling later that evening while watching fireworks.

Miley and Justin were spotted stepping out together for the first time in September 2008, walking hand-in-hand, heading for Sunday service at a church in Pasadena, California. Despite a denial from her representative, the rumored lovers continued adding fuel to romance talk as they were photographed together on some occasions.

If these were black people, that child molesting man, and maybe the father, would be locked up. Miley is a whore. Her boyfriend a child molester, and her dad a shame. What respectable man let's his child date grown men? NONE. Isn't that illegal? Where are the laws that protect children? Mileys 16 and a worn out hooker. Imagine her list when she hits 25. Its already too long for a 16 year old girl. Y'all get mad if you want, its all true.

Why in the world would he go out with a 16 year old girl? That is rather disgusting considering he is 20(or older?). I think it is pretty obvious he just wants the attention from everyone because I am more than positive he could have a woman who is more suitable for his age and still good looking. Oh yea... and the whole argument "they really like each other so why does it matter?" really doesn't fly.

I think most of you call Miley a whore becouse you fell bad about yourself and all you can do is put down another human just so you can fill good about yourself and if all you can say is bad thaings about her than I think you should not put a comment up at all.

I have to say that 4 years is not that bad as long as you love each other. My grandmother and grandfather had 8 years betwen them and thay love eachother more then most cuples do.

i m now just doubting on miley cyrus.... she is a big slut...... is she alright ......justin is 8 year older than miley......oh gosh. this can lead to anyting... plzz miley's fans don't try to copy it...

Now, I dont see 4 yrs age difference a big deal. But the fact that the guys a full adult, and miley is still in highschool is just weird for me to think about. As long as she gets over the tattoo phase, i see the relationship clean and a good start. If theyre having sexual relationships, theres a red flag. Shes a little young and I think its illegal. Im not saying they are, but why else would miley want a tattoo? Lets hope shes careful, and lets see if she can makeup for the immature sexual/seductive internet pics..

i think miley you should go out with him he's so hot ,and he's so older than you,but anyway age don,t matter and you guys are perfect for each other
posted by kristina12345 on Nov 10, 2008
oh please, leave the girl alone! if she likes this guy and he likes her then there is no reason they should not date. yeah - there is a big age gap but he is apparently a good guy so why not go for it? STOP JUDGING AND LET MILEY LIVE HER LIFE. if he makes her happy then that's great:]

i normaly stay out of subjects like this... BUT this is really rediculus. NO girls father should have enough common sence to let this happen... and no gy should be stupid enough to date a gurl under 18 when he is over.

doubt if miley will get pregnant she wears a purity ring
posted by antisecretadmirer on Oct 09, 2008
what are you, seven? so not all of miley's choices have been right, and yeah, the age difference is a big deal to a teenager. but seriously, you talk like you're in elementary school. can you really not spell fifteen? and who are you to judge anyway? what a stupid post, "secretadmireer".
posted by secretadmireer on Oct 09, 2008
Miley is out of control she dated a twenty-two year old the little girl is only fifth-teen by the time she's six-teen she's gonna be pregnant.
