Miley Cyrus is now living with her homeless friend Jesse Held

'Wrecking Ball' Miley Cyrus singer shocked onlookers at the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday by turning up with a homeless friend.

She also let him accept her award for best music video - but Miley, being Miley, has now gone a step further by inviting Jesse Helt to move into her home.

"This is all part of Miley's reinvention. Her mum Tish brought in a new team of advisors to give her a makeover after she lost a lot of support with her extreme antics and sexy performances,” a source told the Daily Star newspaper.

"Taking him as her date to the VMAs worked really well for her and she wanted to help Jesse in other ways.

"He's being given top treatment at Miley's home by a team of staff doing his laundry and cooking for him. She now wants to be seen making a difference."

The 21-year-old pop star shot to Jesse's defence on Tuesday after it was revealed there was a warrant out for his arrest.

She tweeted:

One big happy family; Miley, Jesse, her four dogs and her pet pig Bubba Sue.

Are we liking this new, more mature side of Miley?
