Cody Simpson has opened up about his split from Miley Cyrus for the first time ever and we’ve been waiting to hear from the poetic prince.
Speaking to 60 Minutes, the Aussie muso explained that he and Miley felt their relationship had reached a natural end.
“I’d known her for a long time at that point,” Cody said of his relationship with Miley, adding, “not like a mentor but always a very hyper-creative person.”
“We went from being good friends, to just having a lot of the same friends, to being together for a while,” he continued. “Everything ended fairly amicably, and it was just one of those phases, I guess. You go through [it] and you learn a lot from it.”
Cody Simpson and Miley Cyrus dated for almost a year before calling it quits in August 2020.
Back in August, Miley addressed her romantic life, including her split from another Aussie, Liam Hemsworth, who she got a divorce from in 2019.
“A year ago, almost to this exact date, the media tried to tell my story for me and control my narrative, and I’m just not accepting that,” Miley Cyrus said on Instagram Live, in reference to her divorce.
She then discussed her and Cody’s breakup, sharing, “So today, it came out that me and my boyfriend have broken up. It was confirmed by a ‘reliable source’ even though no one is reliable in a relationship except the two individuals that are participating in it.”
“But, for right now, two halves can’t make a whole and we’re individually just working on ourselves to become the people that we wanna be,” Miley Cyrus continued. “Like everybody else at this age, we’re just deciding who we wanna be with our lives, what we wanna do with our lives. And so, don’t make it some drama story if next week we’re out hanging out or getting pizza. We’ve been friends for 10 years and we’re gonna continue to be friends.”
As she put it, “Just don’t make it something that it is not. And with that being said, I’m done with the bullshit.”
Both Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson appear to be thriving post-split, with Miley having released banger after banger while Cody is killing it in his swimming career, so all’s well that ends well, I’d say.
