Can't a girl just hang out with her male best friend, in a bikini, in Miami?

Not if you're the recently engaged Miley Cyrus, apparently.

The 19-year-old star was spotted poolside in Miami with a man other than her fiance, 22-year-old Liam Hemsworth. Photographers snapped photos of Miley and the mystery man, who turned out to be Cheyne Thomas --a close friend and part-time assistant -- lounging at their hotel pool and smoking cigarettes on the balcony.

The two looked awfully close, but there is no need to raise eyebrows -- the friendship is totally platonic. Miley's mom, Tish Cyrus, defended her daughter and her friendship with Thomas, writing on Twitter:

"So sad that the nasty tabloids have to make up stories to sell their trashy mags. Cant they just leave these 2 alone and let them be happy?

Miley also defended herself, responding to her mother's tweet,:

Miley Ray Cyrus
I love my fiancé & he loves me. All the rest is bull shit. We get to live a life of happiness no one can take that away from us!

Cheyne also fought back against allegations that there was something going on between him and Miley, writing:

"Not sure if u guys realize it or not but you can hang out with ur friend and look happy and be having fun..there's nothing wrong with that.."

A few hours later, Miley returned to Twitter to further express how stupid she thought the rumors were, writing:

"so now because I am engaged I can't have a friend of the opposite sex? can't have a friend help me out while I'm working alllll day? #dumb." She added, "maybe YOU would have friends too if you'd get your face out the tabloids & start living your own life :) unfortunate."

All we can say is the girl makes a good point.
