Lil Xan and Noah Cyrus had a very public and confusing breakup over Labor Day weekend. Both parties accused the other of cheating and Lil Xan ultimately claimed the whole relationship was a PR stunt setup by his record label and he just didn’t want to do it anymore because it “added work to my schedule.” Noah has a different story.
In one of his many, many Instagram stories about the situation, Lil Xan claimed the whole thing was fake and although he found Noah “very attractive” maintaining this “fake” relationship was too much work for him.
“Shout out to Columbia Records for setting up that fake relationship. I didn’t want to do it to be completely honest. Noah’s very attractive, she’s very attractive, very attractive. I just didn’t want to do it because it was added work to my schedule. That’s the truth, so don’t believe all this fake shit that’s about to come out.”

Both Noah and Colobumbia Records have denied Lil Xan’s claims that the whole thing was PR stunt. Noah says Lil Xan (real name Diego Leanos) slipped into her DMs and everything happened naturally from there.
“This relationship was not set up by Columbia Records. To say that is a joke,” Noah said on her Instagram story. “It started when I got a DM from Diego and he asked me to hang out.”
Lil Xan’s response (via Instagram stories): “she’s using me to get more popping in the music industry.” He says he has screenshots that “prove” the relationship was fake all along.
The fact that all of this is playing out on social media sort of does back up Xan’s claim of a PR stunt, but at the same time if it’s not the only way for Noah to combat a narrative she sees as false is to get her story out there. What do you think?
