Miley Cyrus and Jared Followill were spotted getting cozy at MTV’s EMAs in November and now she’s trying to keep his attention with a series of flirty text messages.

Jared Followill of Kings of Leon is one lucky guy! Not only is he a rock star, but he is Miley Cyrus‘s latest crush. The 18-year-old Disney star has been sending Jared text messages non-stop since hanging out with the rocker at MTV’s Europe Music Awards on November 7 according to a source close to the Kings of Leon.

“Miley wants to keep Jared interested,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com. “She often sends him coy text messages. So far, he is a big fan of what she has been sending.”

He’s such a fan, in fact, he’s been bragging to his friends about her texts! “Jared loves showing off his texts from Miley,” laughs our insider. “He thinks she’s very pretty and is excited she’s still flirting with him.”

Miley and the 24-year-old bassist have known each other for a while and are connected by their hometown, Nashville. With a six-year age gap between them, could they be Hollywood’s next cougar couple?
