Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson are done. A source close to the “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart” singer and the Australian crooner told ET the couple have broken up. Though the breakup happened weeks ago, the reason for the split is not known.
Cyrus confirmed the split during an Instagram Live, telling fans she wanted to “get something that is obvious out of the way,” E! News reported.
Referencing her breakup from Liam Hemsworth in August 2019, Cyrus said, “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.
“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,” 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.
“Just don’t make it something that it is not. And with that being said, I’m done with the bulls**t.”
Fans believe Cyrus alluded to their breakup in an Instagram post earlier this week, which she captioned, “Forever and ever no more. 🖤 The #MidnightSky is the road I’m taking…. head high up in the clouds.” Page Six was first to report the breakup.
A source told ET earlier this month that Cyrus’ “divorce from Liam and her new relationship with Cody was a whirlwind of change for her, but in true Miley fashion she has come out on top,” before describing Simpson as “lots of fun and a good friend to Miley.”
“What began as close friends supporting one another during a rough time blossomed into more,” the source said. “Their relationship was unexpected and became meaningful very quickly, and she couldn’t be happier. They are both very passionate about their music, and it’s something that has bonded them.”
Simpson and Cyrus had been quarantining together and would regularly share videos and photos of the them together.
Cyrus’ last Instagram post with Simpson was April 3, when she had him as a guest on her IG talk show, “Bright Minded”. Simpson’s last post with the former “Hannah Montana” star was April 14.
