DAILY POP EXCLUSIVE: Brandon Thomas Lee Calls Miley Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter's PDA 'So Fake'

by ELYSE DUPRE

Brandon Thomas Leehas a few thoughts on those PDA-packed photos of Miley Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter. The Hills: New Beginningsstar shared them all on Monday's episode of E! News' Daily Pop.

Over the weekend, fans learned that Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth havecalled it quits. Paparazzi then photographed the 26-year-old singer kissing Carter during an Italian getaway. After the photos started to spread online, Brody Jenner, who announced his split from Carter about a week before, took to Instagram to post a picture of himself in Malibu, Calif.

'Don't let yesterday take up too much of today,' he captioned the photo.

Lee then commented on the post and joked they should 'round this scandal out and post a pic of us making out.'

'Watch out!' Jenner replied. 'Pics of Liam and I holding hands on the beach coming soon.'

During his DailyPop interview, Lee insisted he didn't care about the drama and was just kidding.

'I was like, 'This is getting out of hand,'' he said. 'This whole thing is just so, like-I don't know. I didn't even want to get involved with it. It just seems so fake to me.'

Host Carissa Culiner then asked the celeb to clarify his comments.

'It's just like-why?' he said. 'They're just obviously messing with their two ex-husbands. And they're all friends. So, it's like, they were all friends. So, why-it just seems so ridiculous to me.'

When fellow host Justin Sylvester asked Lee if he thinks 'something went down' between Cyrus and Carter before, Lee said he didn't know.

'I don't know. They're all so crazy,' he said. 'I would almost probably assume that....I have no interest in this situation at all. Like, zero percent. I was just curious as of why this blew up so much, and I forgot Miley has so many fans.'

A source told E! News Cyrus and Carter are friends and that they recently bonded over their public breakups.
