Miley Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter are planning to wed? That’s what one of this week’s tabloids is claiming. Gossip Cop investigated the story and we’ve learned it’s totally false.
A new headline in NW reads “Miley & Kaitlynn’s Shotgun Wedding!” The article alleges that Cyrus and Carter intend to get married once their respective divorces from Liam Hemsworth and Brody Jenner are finalized. The outlet even insists there are “whispers” that the two “had a secret commitment ceremony” during their recent time in Europe. “They’re deadly serious about this and have already told Miley’s parents,” says an unnamed source.
The so-called “insider” goes on to say that Cyrus and Carter “are literally planning their wedding alongside their divorces.” Even Tish, Cyrus’ mother, supposedly approves of the quick timeline. “You’d think she’d have told Miley to hold her horses, but she didn’t,” says the anonymous tipster, adding that they’re putting together plans for a Las Vegas ceremony.
“They’ll say ‘I do’ in one of the little chapels and then go crazy with everyone at a nightclub,” adds the unidentified tipster. “They’ve even talked about renting a couple of floors in one of the hotels. It won’t be quiet or sophisticated, that’s for sure.”
According to the mysterious source, Cyrus “doesn’t want to make the divorce easy for Liam” but is willing to do what it takes to speed up her marriage to The Hills: New Beginnings star. “If anyone stands in their way, they’ll elope if they have to,” adds the insider.
The only thing that “stands in the way” of this marriage is the truth. We reached out to Cyrus’ rep, who tells us on the record that the story is “completely false.” The story as a whole is also remarkably similar to one published this week by NW’s sister outlet, Heat.
Both publications include similar quotes, which would indicate they’re getting their information from the same “source.” The problem is that this “insider” tells Heat that the two are most likely going to wed on a private island, not in Vegas. Either the source is lying to one of the magazines, or, more likely, the source is entirely fake and the tabloids are just trying to hedge their bets on a possible location if the two ever do wed.
Gossip Cop already busted NW for publishing a piece in August claiming that Cyrus’ family was pushing for her to spend a few weeks in a psych ward to save her marriage to Hemsworth. We also debunked the tabloid’s story about Hemsworth and Cyrus’ “open marriage” in May. The outlet simply doesn’t know anything about Cyrus’ personal life, including her relationship with Carter.
