Miley Cyrus’ cheating drama just got a LOT more interesting!

Miley Cyrus and her boyfriend Patrick Schwarzenegger were at the centre of some scandal this week when pictures where published of Patrick getting cosy with another woman.

After travelling to Cabo San Lucas for spring break, Patrick was snapped dancing and holding hands with a mystery brunette. Onlookers also claimed he took a body shot off her stomach – very cheeky indeed!

Now the drama has intensified as it has emerged that the mystery girl is not such a mystery after all – in fact she is even someone that Miley has hung out with on previous occasions.

The pair were pictured together as recently as November, when Miley attended a college football game with Patrick and his friends.

Whether that is going to make the controversial pictures harder or easier to deal with for Miley we can't be sure.

As for Patrick, he has been making every effort to make it clear he was not cheating on Miley. He took to Twitter the day after the pictures were published to state that the woman in question was a friend's girlfriend, writing, "Would NEVER do anything against my GF":

The plot thickens!
