Though Cyrus has not publicly addressed her romance with Carter, she was spotted lunching with the reality star and mother Tish Cyrus days after their Italian getaway.

A source told that Tish, 52, is confused by how fast the two ladies are moving, and doesn't know what to think about the seemingly fame-hungry Carter.

After her split from Hemsworth, Cyrus released an emotional song about their downfall, titled "Slide Away," in which she speaks about wanting to grow up and let go of her past.

It also includes a cryptic line about "whiskey and pills" which seems to reference rumors of Hemsworth's excessive partying.
