Everyone was obsessed with Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson‘s magical romance. That is, until news hit the web on November 18, 2019, that the couple had reportedly called it quits. That’s right, according to Radar Online, the two stars have decided to go their separate ways, after only a month together.
“They are taking a break, but want to remain friends,” a source told the outlet. “She said she just needs to focus on herself.”
As fans know, the new romance came only weeks after the Hannah Montana actress split from her husband, Liam Hemsworth, after being on and off for more than 10 years. But according to an insider, her relationship was all a ploy to make her ex jealous.
“This romance with Cody… and constant ‘look at me’ behavior is all designed to push Liam’s buttons — and to be fair it’s always worked in the past because he’s a good guy who ultimately loves her,” the source said. “But now he’s just rolling his eyes and washing his hands of her, even as a friend, which of course is driving Miley nuts.”
For those who forgot, Miley and Cody were first spotted kissing on October 3, 2019. An eyewitness told Us Weekly that they saw the 26-year-old 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?
