    Singer/actress Miley Cyrus was caught "making out" with her The Last Song,/i> co-star Liam Hemsworth at the Nashville airport, People magazine reported. While the Disney princess claims she's still single, her tweets show she's been hanging out with the young actor a lot. "I kinda want to go see 'The Time Traveler's Wife' but I think I'll just sit around and eat sushi and watch "Liar Liar" with Liam :)" she posted Aug. 14.

    A Georgia judge has transferred the misdemeanor case of a 53-year-old man accused of trying to stalk Miley Cyrus to a court that handles felony cases, indicating prosecutors are looking at stiffer charges.

    Mark McLeod's attorney, James Byrne, said Friday prosecutors are trying to keep his client in jail without evidence that he's dangerous.

    Police say McLeod, who lives about three hours from Georgia's Tybee Island, traveled there in June and August looking for 16-year-old Cyrus as she filmed a movie. He faces misdemeanor charges including attempted stalking.

    A state court judge transferred the case Wednesday to Superior Court. No new charges have been filed.

    A spokeswoman for Chatham County District Attorney Larry Chisolm declined to comment.
