Miley Cyrus and Stella Maxwell have confirmed their relationship.

The 22-year-old singer was first rumoured to be dating the 24-year-old Victoria's Secret model last month, after they met through mutual friends on Instagram, and Stella has now acknowledged the romance, referring to Miley as her partner on Instagram.

Along with a photo of herself and the 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker riding dinosaur statues, Stella shared: ''Chillen W my lady @mileycyrus (sic)''.

Miley posted the same picture of her and her girlfriend, calling Stella a ''bad a$$ chick''.

She shared: ''Bad a$$ day with a bad a$$ chick @stellamaxwell (sic).''

Rumours the pair had started dating first began circulating last month when Miley - who recently came out as bisexual - was seen locking lips with the blonde beauty in a car park close to the set of her new music video in Hollywood.

And although it was claimed that their make-out session was just a way to drum up publicity for the new video, friends have said that Miley is completely ''in lust'' with the model.

They said: ''People who have been around them recently say the relationship is highly charged, not so much romantic as full-on lust.''

These pictures follow a dinner date to Cocina Condesa in Studio City, California, on Monday (06.07.15), during which Miley and Stella ''could not keep their hands off of one another''.
