After 10 months together, Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson called it quits in August 2020. Now, a few months later, the Daily Mail has reported that the former flames unfollowed each other on social media.
“Today, it came out that me and my boyfriend had broken up. It was ‘confirmed by a reliable source,’ although no one is reliable in a relationship, except the two individuals participating in it. But for right now, two halves cannot make a whole and we’re individually just working on ourselves to become the people that we want to be,” she explained during an Instagram Live from August 13, 2020. “Like everyone else at this age, we’re deciding who we want to be and what we want to do with our lives. So don’t make it some drama story if next week we’re spotted hanging out or getting pizza. We’ve been friends for 10 years and will continue to be friends. Don’t make it something that it is not.”
The two stars were first spotted kissing on October 3, 2019. An eyewitness told Us Weekly at the time that they saw the former Disney star and the Australian singer having an intimate lunch date at Backyard Bowls in Los Angeles — and they couldn’t keep their hands (or their lips!) off each other.
“They walked in holding hands and looked around a bit, but then started to get pretty comfortable and were not shy about showing their affection toward each other at all,” the onlooker told the outlet. “They were both standing at first, flirting and kissing. Then they came and sat down. Miley got up and sat on Cody’s lap and started making out with him. His name was called at the counter, and he grabbed his smoothie bowl, and they left together holding hands.”
They’re two of the biggest stars in Hollywood, so seeing them together was pretty epic, right? OK, but how did this pairing even come about?
