Noah Cyrus is single no more. So who's the lucky guy? The 18-year-old singer is officially dating 21-year-old Soundcloud rapper Lil Xan. It's no secret that Noah's big sister Miley Cyrus had her controversial phase back in the day, and it appears her new bae is on the edgier side as well. The California native – whose real name is Diego Leanos – is best known for his breakout song "Betrayed," which peaked at number 64 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The artist dropped out of high school during his freshman year, and surprisingly didn't even know he was going to pursue rapping at the time.
"I failed every class up until I dropped out freshman year," Xan said in an interview. "I just could not sit down for seven hours a day and listen."
Once he was out of school, he started taking photos – until his camera was stolen. So what did he do? He rapped to make the money to buy a new one.
The rapper continued, "My camera got stolen, so I started rapping. And you know, it started off real slow but six months later, it's like an overnight sensation."
The rapper received major backlash a few months back though when he rated Tupac's music a 2 out of 9 in an interview where he was asked his opinion of the late rapper. Fans all over Twitter basically jumped down his throat for the comment, including Waka Flocka.

Diplo is a big fan of Xan and Noah's relationship though since he took to the comments section of one of their pictures saying, "I wanna DJ the wedding." So yeah, safe to say they have his stamp of approval. As for what the Cyrus squad thinks? Still no word from her famous family members, but it's all still super new.
"It is still very new and only became official within the last week," a source told Us Weekly. "Noah has told her close friends about him and seems excited."
They sure do look like they're in love!
