Miley Cyrus and BFF Mandy Jiroux kept it casual and grabbed a bite to eat at Sushi Dan in Studio City the other night, and it looks like the girls had a blast.
Just who is Mandy Jiroux, you ask? Well, she's a 21-year-old backup dancer for Miley (that's how the ladies met), and she's even got her own group, the Beach Girlz. HOWEVER, there have also been some rumors floating around lately that Mandy is a "paid babysitter" and that she was hired by the Cyrus family to watch Miley. So what's the real story? Well, we just spoke to Mandy's rep, and she tells us those reports are totally false.
When asked about the "babysitter" allegations, Mandy told X17online exclusively: "Thats ridiculous, but kinda funny. It's amazing what kinds of rumors people come up with - it makes me laugh." Glad we cleared that up!
The girls' relationship has raised some eyebrows (after all, Mandy is 5 years older than Miley), but consider this: Miley isn't your average teenager, so do you really expect her to have the same kind of life and friends as a normal 16-year-old high school sophomore? Miley has traveled all over the world, she's made millions of dollars, and she's basically the most famous teen on the planet. Plus, Miley's also been spotted with Ashley Tisdale, who is 23, so it sounds to us like a big deal is being made out of nothing!
Maybe Miley's just super mature?
