Remember when Miley Cyrus split up with now-ex husband Liam Hemsworth and immediately began an epic relationship? No, no, I’m not referring to Aussie Cody Simpson, I’m referring to Kaitlynn Carter, who she started dating shortly after the big breakup.
Well punters are convinced that one of the tracks on Miley’s freshly released album Plastic Hearts is directed at the reality star.
Peep the lyrics to the song ‘Angels Like You’ below:
“I know that you’re wrong for me / Gonna wish we never met on the day I leave I brought you down to your knees / ‘Cause they say that misery loves company / It’s not your fault I ruin everything / And it’s not your fault I can’t be what you need / Baby, angels like you can’t fly down here with me / I’ll put you down slow, love you goodbye / Before you let go, just one more time / Take off your clothes, pretend that it’s fine / A little more hurt won’t kill you / Tonight mama says you don’t look happy / Close your eyes.”
The lyrics refer to a complicated relationship, which is certainly one way to describe her fling with Kaitlynn. The pair got together shortly after their breakups with Hemsworth and Kardashian-Jenner fam member, Brody Jenner.
Just as Miley and Liam announced that their marriage was ending, Miley was spotted on vacay with Kaitlynn and the couple spent six weeks together on a loved-up trip.
I refuse to think angel like you is about Liam because she can’t drag him in every other song than turn around and say he’s an angel. I feel like that song is about kaitlynn carter. Maybe Cody but def not Liam.

“Miley doesn’t want a serious relationship,” a source told People at the time of the breakup. “She and Kaitlynn spent every day together, and it just wasn’t anything that Miley wanted to continue doing. She wants to focus on her career. It wasn’t an easy decision, but this is ultimately what she wants.”
They soon called it quits, which is when Miley Cyrus got with Cody and so began their love story.
The Hills: New Beginnings star later penned a candid essay for Elle where she discusses how it went down.
“This past July, I went on vacation with a female friend; the next thing I knew, I was in love with her,” the blogger began.
“It wasn’t quite that simple, of course. But it also wasn’t very complicated, either. Until that trip, it had never crossed my mind that I was even capable of loving a woman the way I loved her. But after reflecting on my romantic history, I realised that I’ve never really had a ‘type.’”

Carter added that her relationship with Cyrus, which ended in September, wasn’t just a “summer fling” or a “same-sex affair.”
“While it was short-lived, I’ll remain eternally grateful to my most recent relationship for opening my eyes to this unexplored part of myself, and for inspiring a new level of self-discovery and wonder at all the possibilities of life,” she wrote.
“I’ve been forced to get to know myself in a far deeper way than ever before, and not just in terms of my sexual preferences. I’ve also been forced to reckon with who I am as a person.”
