That was fast. Miley Cyrus' brief liaison with Kellan Lutz is kaput, says E! News. The rumored dalliance lasted approximately the same amount of time as the tongue-waggling chart-topper's last hairstyle.

Seems their "quick fling" just "kind of burned out," with "hectic schedules" cited as the reason they're "not really hanging out anymore."

Miley, 21, and Kellan, 28, were first linked in December, when they were spotted exiting a private jet together in Miami following a trip to the Bahamas. Days later came reports of a make-out session at a Las Vegas hotspot, capped off with a dance floor interlude to Major Lazer's "Bubble Butt."

The timing of the ostensible romance was particularly good for the "Twilight" second banana, who's been busy promoting his titular (and shirtless) role in "The Legend of Hercules." The dating rumors provided a nice talking point for his interviews, although he was quick to brush them off.

"It's comical for me. I'm a public figure, she's a public figure. I've been friends with her for six years, and we're in the same circle," he told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, adding to Ryan Seacrest, "I'm happily single. … I'm not [looking for a relationship] right now. I'm enjoying life. I'm traveling quite a bit. … There's no real time to find the one."

Meanwhile, Life & Style claims that the actor "dumped" her, and despite his denials, "friends say the two were definitely an item and had hooked up for months. So Miley was hurt and humiliated to learn that once again, a man she cared about wants nothing to do with her."

An insider assured Gossip Cop that the story is "100 perfect false."

A source adds to E! that although "there definitely was a fling there," Miley and Kellan were "never serious" about dating.

Besides, they'll always have that the precious memory of dancing together to "Bubble Butt" …
