It is on record that Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas got together during the early years of their respective showbiz careers. While Cyrus was known for playing the title character in the Hannah Montana musical, Jonas equally became a prominent figure on the Disney channel. As perfect as this teen couple seemed at the time, they kept their relationship totally private.
Unfortunately, their romance was not well-chronicled by the media, no thanks to their high-level of secrecy. But as they say, nothing stays hidden under the sun. Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas eventually opened up about their relationship years after it had ended. As revealed in her 2009 memoir Miles to Go, the duo met in June 2006 at a charity event which had several Disney stars in attendance. The talented singer made further revelations about their romance during an interview in which she stated that they remained an item for a little over a year before eventually parting ways on December 19, 2007.
Apparently, Nick Jonas is not the only Disney star who had an eye for Miley Cyrus.

However, Nick Jonas came into the picture even before they could start things off.
Miley Cyrus reportedly met Thomas Sturges sometime in 2007 when the latter’s mother penned a song for the singer’s Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus album. It remains unclear when they officially hit it off, however, they gained a lot of publicity after some suggestive pictures of the duo surfaced in media circle. These photos were supposedly not favorable for the squeaky-clean image which the Hannah Montana star represented at that time and as a result, Cyrus was pressured to end her relationship with Sturges. The duo eventually parted ways in mid-2008.
Among the Hannah Montana star’s famous ex-lovers is the handsome model, singer-songwriter and actor Justin Gatson. The pair started dating sometime in 2008, however, their relationship stirred up a little controversy owing to the fact that Cyrus was only 16 at the time and there was also a 4-year age gap between them.
After dating for 9 months, the couple allegedly split in mid-2009 as Cyrus prepared to leave town to go film The Last Song. Though their breakup was mainly due to the distance, it was further complicated by the fact that Cyrus was spending a great amount of time with her ex-boyfriend Nick Jonas.
