This is such a sweet image in such a tough time for the entire family.
Ever since those fishy photos of the USC student getting touchy feely with a female "friend" in Cabo San Lucas surfaced, things haven't been the same.
"Patrick is devastated."
What we don't understand though, is if this girl is just a friend, and Miley understands that — why is he so upset over it?
Especially when Miley isn't??
The 22-year-old was spotted out in West Hollywood on Monday evening having a laugh at The Laugh Factory!
Club owner Jamie Masada said Miley looked like she didn't have a care in the world:
"I thought she had the time of her life. She was having a great time and she really enjoyed it. If she did have something going on with Patrick, you could not tell because she was laughing so hard."
Could it be that Patrick is feeling guilty for the recent photos? Or is he just upset that everyone is blowing this whole thing out of proportion??
Who knows. But Miley still has yet to say anything about it!
Maybe she just trusts him. Maybe.
