Tyler Posey Talks Pre-Teen Romance With Miley Cyrus & Advocating for Gay Friends
No one forgets his or her first kiss. But not many can say it was Miley Cyrus -- unless, that is, you’re Tyler Posey.
While talking to ETonline, the 23-year-old star of MTV’s Teen Wolf recalled the time he locked lips with the pre-Hannah Montana starlet. The moment came at 9-years-old when he was working on the PAX medical drama, Doc, with Billy Ray Cyrus.
Posey and his daughter Miley bonded after moving to Toronto where the show was filmed. “I was basically the only kid on set. She would come on set every now and then and we became really good friends,” Posey recalled. “We were both goofy and she was really loud, sweet, and funny -- just a really cool kid.”
The two eventually became a couple, spending two years as “boyfriend and girlfriend” during which time he had his first kiss. “We were so damn young… I would get excited when we would hold hands,” Posey said.
While they never evolved into a serious relationship, Posey could tell, even then, that Cyrus was a special, self-assured person. “She was herself at seven years old. She knew who she was,” he said. “I never met anyone like that at my age.”
In the years since their pre-teen romance, Posey was in 12-year relationship with Seana Gorlick. The two separated in October 2014. And Cyrus, now 22, revealed that she came out to her mother when she was 14 years old.
Jason Fitz is joined by Yahoo Sports Senior NFL Reporter Jori Epstein to discuss the latest news around the league as the NFL world prepares for the NFL Combine before diving into their favorite landing spots for the top 2024 free agents. Fitz and Jori start off with Justin Fields' comments on a podcast about why he unfollowed the Chicago Bears on social media, and the duo discuss whether his explanation is valid or if he was intentionally sending a message. Next, the two hosts prep for the NFL Combine next week by going back and forth on the news that Athletes First will have its clients abstain from cognitive testing and how NFL evaluators might be putting too much stock in what happens in Indianapolis instead of the years of football experience the prospects have put on tape.
Later, Fitz and Jori run down the list of the top available free agents in 2024 and give their ideal landing spots for Kirk Cousins, Chris Jones, L'Jarius Sneed, Baker Mayfield, Josh Allen, Tee Higgins, Brian Burns, Christian Wilkins, Antoine Winfield Jr, Tyron Smith and soon-to-be free agent Russell Wilson.
