AceShowbiz - Cody Simpson has broken his silence on his breakup with Miley Cyrus. After calling it quits in August 2020, the winner of "The Masked Singer Australia" finally opened up that he has learned "a lot" from it.
When speaking to Australia's "60 Minutes" on Sunday, May 30, the "Flower" hitmaker revealed that his past relationship with the former "Hannah Montana" star ended without any drama. "Everything ended fairly amicably. It was just one of those phases I guess you go through [it] and you learn a lot from it," he admitted.
Offering more details, Cody said, "I'd known her for a long time at that point." Proving that there is no bad blood between him and the "Party in the U.S.A." singer after their split, the Olympic swimmer went on gushing over his ex-girlfriend, "She'd kind of acted almost as, like - not as a mentor, but she was always a heightened creative person." He added further, "We went from kind of being good friends and just having a lot of the same friends to being together for a while."
Cody was first linked to Miley in October 2019 following the "We Can't Stop" singer's split from Kaitlynn Carter. It was only two months after the 28-year-old singer separated from her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth.
A year after, Miley herself confirmed in an Instagram Live session that she called off her relationship with Cody. At the time, she announced, "So today, it came out that me and my boyfriend have broken up." She declared, "But 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, like everybody else at this age."
"We are just deciding who we wanna be in our lives, what we wanna do, and so, don't make it some drama story if next week we're hanging out, getting pizza," Miley continued. "We've been friends for 10 years and we're going to continue to be friends, so just don't make it something that it is not."
