Following her high profile split from ex-husband Liam Hemsworth last summer, Miley Cyrus struck up a romantic relationship with singer Cody Simpson.
Cyrus, who called time on her brief romance with influencer Kaitlyn Carter last September, has been spotted on regular outings with her long-time friend Simpson, from coffee catch-ups and film nights to tattoo parlour visits and visits home to Nashville with her family.
Cyrus and Simpson – who is an Australian musician, singer, actor and University of Southern California’s Trojan Swim Elite team competitor – have been close friends for years, with Simpson admitting that the singer is one of his ‘best friends’ in an interview with GQ in 2015.
‘Miley is one of my best friends and she helps with some of that transitional stuff – trying to escape your childhood,’ he told the publication. ‘She’s super open-minded and I’m working on becoming more like that.’
Over the years, the pair and their friends have enjoyed holidays to Miami and celebrated Simpson’s 18th birthday together with his ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid.
Here’s everything that’s happened in Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson’s relationship so far:
April 2020: Cody Simpson discusses romantic relationships
The singer-turned-poet has opened up about his relationship with ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid and new romance with Miley Cyrus.
In a new interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, the singer spoke about the women in his life.
‘I owe a lot of my humility to these women,’ he told the publication.
‘My ability to make good decisions comes from the way I was raised: I don’t want to disappoint Mum or my grandmothers. They’ve shown me that being close to your mum and grandmothers makes you a better human.’
Speaking about his relationship with Hadid, with whom he was in a relationship from 2012 to 2014, he spoke fondly of the runway star.
‘I dated Gigi Hadid for two years and have always enjoyed being with independent women who are strong individuals,’ Simpson explained. ‘I have never really been heartbroken in the deepest sense, but I have been disappointed in relationships.’
Discussing his relationship with Cyrus, who he began dating in October last year following her divorce from Liam Hemsworth, the Californian-based star added: ‘Being with Miley is a wonderful thing in my life.’
‘She is creative and inspiring, fiercely independent and encourages me to be my own person, too. We are both creative individuals who support one another with our work.
‘Miley also inspires my art. There’s some romance in the poems I have written and yeah, they might be about her. It’s inevitable that what happens in my private life comes out in my work.’
On the subject of marriage, however, he said that he is ‘far too young to consider it’.
‘I just continue to surround myself with positive women who inspire me and teach me new things every day,’ he concluded.

I’ve never been an “adult” / grown ass woman experiencing this…I was in a committed relationship for almost all my teens and early 20s; with the exception of a few breaks, which usually in those times I was working my ass off with not much R&R…and “meeting / trusting” people in my position is really tuff. Don’t f**king pity me, not what I’m asking for.’
