They added: "Sorry bi people, I am taken".
"The [ex] couples are friends - the four of them have spent time together in Malibu", the source says.
"I think it's very confusing to people that I'm married", she said.

"Relationships and partnerships in a new generation - I don't think they have so much to do with sexuality or gender".
Carter and Cyrus are now on holiday together in Italy and during the trip the reality star shared a photograph of them together on a boat, captioned: "Rock the boat, don't rock the boat baby".

"There were other people sitting by the pool", the eyewitness recalls.
The source continued, "After they reunited, everyone thought they were this "perfect" couple, but they still had a lot of issues".
Miley also opened up about not fitting into the stereotypical wife role.
