Cody Simpson and Miley Cyrus have moved on from their COVID-era romance, but there are no hard feelings between the ex-lovers. During an appearance on The Kyle & Jackie O Show, Simpson got candid on his 2020 breakup with Cyrus and revealed that it was largely due to “circumstance.” The singer said, “It was kind of a mutual decision between us, knowing that we were sort of going in different directions in our life.”
The singer went on to say, “I had just started training at that point, so my life was changing a lot and I knew I was going to have to eventually move back to Australia to do it properly and professionally.” Cody went on to say, “She was just going into her whole new album and was going to be going out on tour and doing all that stuff, so it was kind of a fork in the road kind of scenario, really.” Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson were first linked in October 2019 and reportedly split in August 2020.
Talking about the breakup, Simpson said, “[It’s] a no hard feelings kind of thing. We were in different places. We had a great, amazing year together and everything. We lived together during all the COVID lockdowns and stuff. We had a lot of fun.” When asked if the singer ever told him why Miley and her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth split in August 2019, Simpson said they didn’t discuss that relationship. “We’d moved on from all the past at that point. But yeah, it just was what it was,” he said.
