Miley Cyrus has been spotted everywhere recently with model and aspiring singer Justin Gaston, but the 20-year-old former “Nashville Star” contestant denies having a relationship with the 15-year-old Disney star.

“Oh, just family friend, you know,” Gaston said at the CMA Awards on Wednesday night.

“I met Billy Ray on the show and just became friends with the whole family. And they’re such a great family,” Gaston continued. “I moved (to LA) two years ago and started a modeling career and that’s kind of just to break into the music business and everything.”

Justin may have an affinity for older women. The model/singer commented on fellow CMA attendee Nicole Kidman, telling Access, “She’s beautiful, especially in person.”

“Maybe I’ll meet her,” he added.
