Miley Cyrus, Justin Gaston

Before Liam Hemsworth was ever a thought in her mind, Miley Cyrus was head-over-heels for another older guy named … Justin Gaston. In 2008, when the “Hannah Montana” star was only 15, she started dating the 20-year-old model. They met through Miley’s dad – Billy Ray hosted “Nashville Star,” the reality show on which Gaston was a contestant. Despite their daughter’s young age, Miley’s parents were both happy about the relationship with Billy Ray calling it “a good thing." No surprise, what Miley and Gaston had wasn’t an everlasting love. In 2009, she announced their split on Twitter, writing, "Why does saying good-bye hurt so much? Life will go on. You will smile again. ... We will smile again." Well, she certainly smiled when new love Hemsworth, 22, popped the question in May 2012. However, “The Last Song” co-stars aren’t rushing down the aisle. “We want to have a long engagement," Miley recently told Marie Claire.
