During his appearance on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on April 19th, Cody Simpson, who dated Miley Cyrus for 10 months and decided to call it quits in August 2020, is now explaining why things did not work out for them.
Cody Simpson said that it was a mutual decision that he and Miley Cyrus took after discussing how they were going in different directions in their lives and explained that he had just started training at the point, but he knew that he had to move back to Australia at some point to start training properly and professionally. Miley Cyrus was also gearing up for her album and was ready to go on tour, so it was a fork in the road kind of scenario for them.
Cody Simpson, who is a singer-turned-athlete, mentioned during the podcast that they enjoyed their time together to the fullest and that they lived together during the pandemic, which helped them to enjoy and have fun together. The singer mentioned that there are no hard feelings between him and Miley Cyrus as there was nothing "wrong" that was done by either of them. It was just the fact that they were not in the same place.
After the breakup, Cody Simpson moved to Australia to train to become an Olympic swimmer for the 2020 Olympics, but unfortunately, he was not able to qualify for the finals. He is now training hard for the Paris Games in 2024. The singer also returned to music as he released his self-titled album on April 8th, which he describes as an optimistic outlook on life and a new phase in his music.
The couple that had been friends for a long time were first linked in October 2019, which was shortly after Miley Cyrus announced her separation from ex-husband Liam Hemsworth, and their divorce was finalized in January 2020.
During the interview, when asked why Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth split in August 2019, Cody Simpson mentioned that the two of them did not discuss that relationship and focused on their lives at the moment. Cody Simpson, who also dated Marloes Stevens, also revealed that he’s single right now and his days are filled with training and full-time swimming. In a recent interview with The Sunday Telegraph, Cody Simpson also mentioned that there were sacrifices that he had to make to make his dream of being an Olympic swimmer come true, which included ending his past two relationships.
Miley Cyrus also went live on her Instagram after the split and shared that two halves can’t make a whole and that Cody Simpson and her were just two individuals who were working on themselves to become the people that they wanted to be, just like everybody of their age is trying to do. She also added that they are deciding on who they want to be in their lives and what they want to do. Miley also added that people should treat it as a drama if they are seen hanging out or getting a pizza because they have been friends for almost ten years and are going to be friends.
Miley Cyrus has been linked to musician Maxx Morando, whom she was spotted kissing recently in West Hollywood, and a source close to them shared that Miley and Maxx had a great time while they were on vacation and, since they are both artistic and creative, they bonded together.
