Miley Cyrus' Bangerz tour stop at the Wells Fargo Center this past weekend ended with a bang—or, rather, a grope. Eat your heart out, Billy Joel.

For a mere $995, fans were offered the chance to purchase a meet-and-greet package for a post-show photo session with Cyrus. A superfan identified only as David from New York took that offer, telling Cyrus that he'd like her to be his "first and last kiss with a girl." Miley being Miley, of course, responded by telling him that he could be her "first and last kiss with a boy." And then, they were off. 

The rest, as they say, is history. The resulting photos have since gone viral, showing Cyrus and David groping, mock kissing, and posing for what appears to be the most flamboyant prom photo ever—complete with blowup sex doll. A more befitting place for this than the Wells Fargo Center (note the Flyers logo on the frame's right side!), there is not. 

But, hey, that won't stop New York from taking credit. From Perez Hilton to Daily Mail, popular internet lore says that the now-infamous groping photo was taken at Nassau Coliseum in New York. The confusion comes from a couple of photos of David and Miley taken after the Wells Fargo photos at her date at Nassau on August 2, which superfan David also attended. In the New York photos, Cyrus can be seen wearing tattered jean shorts and not being groped by a fan

A rep from Splash News, the organization that originally obtained the photos, has informed us that Cyrus had the room mostly cleared out before the grope photo was taken, and that David is an almost constant presence at her concerts. After all, that "superfan" designation doesn't come easily. 

So, with that, Philadelphia has made it as the destination city for people that just have to grab Miley Cyrus' chest. No one can ever take that away.
