London, January 21: Kellan Lutz has denied being romantically involved with Miley Cyrus, saying that he isn't dating the popstar out of respect for her former fiance Liam Hemsworth.
The 28-year-old actor said that he doesn't want to "insult his friend", and that he has cooled things off with the 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker, Metro.co.uk reported.
Sources have revealed that the 'Twilight' star is friends with Hemsworth and doesn't want to insult him by getting serious with Cyrus.
Insiders insisted that Lutz wanted to have a good time, and when they first hooked up the 21-year-old popstar told him that she wanted the same, but Lutz didn't expect her to get obsessed with him, because she acts so cool and independent.
Sources added that Lutz feels bad for Cyrus and he didn't mean to hurt her. (ANI)
