Cyrus, who parted ways with model Justin Gaston earlier this year (09), has been rumoured to be dating the Aussie and the pair fuelled speculation of a new romance when they were spotted kissing in Paris, France, earlier this month (Dec09).
The 74-year-old actress/singer has now revealed the star was by her side when she fell ill in September (09) and nursed her back to health by giving her a book of Australian phrases - to help familiarise her with the country's slang.
"Liam actually went to Australia and then came back. The first night he came back - I had gotten really sick - he brought me back a book to make me laugh, of all the lingo. He was like, I've never heard half of this stuff but some of it's pretty funny! It's really funny how different yet alike America and Australia are," the Daily Star quoted her as telling Australian radio show Take40.
