After 10 months together, Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson called it quits in August 2020. Then in November 2020, the Daily Mail reported that the former flames unfollowed each other on social media, and it appears that they’ve both since moved on.
“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 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.”
Following the breakup, Cody spoke out about why they split.
“It was kind of a mutual decision between us knowing that we were going in different directions in our life,” he shared on the Kyle and Jackie O radio show in April 2022. “I had just started training at that point. So, my life was changing, and I knew I was going to have to move back to Australia to do it properly and professionally, and she was just going into her whole new album was gonna be going out on tour. It was a fork in the road kind of scenario really.”
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.”
As fans know, the new romance came only weeks after the Hannah Montana actress split from her then-husband, Liam Hemsworth, after being on and off for more than 10 years. Scroll through our gallery for a complete guide to Cody and Miley’s relationship.
