Singer, Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson’s lightning-fast romance has been making headlines since October 2019.
The “Slide Away” songstress was first spotted kissing the Australian actor on October 3, 2019, after her split from Liam Hemsworth. Cyrus and Hemsworth, who dated on and off for a decade, called it quits in August 2019 after less than eight months of marriage.
The Hannah Montana alum, who briefly dated Kaitlynn Carter amid her divorce, was forced to defend her relationship with Simpson after receiving backlash from fans.
“I know the public feels invested in my past relationship because they felt like they saw it thru from the beginning. I think that’s why people have always felt so entitled over my life and how I live it because they’ve watched me grow up… but I am grown now,” Cyrus began in a lengthy Twitter post in October 2019. “I would like to share an activity with someone I am dating and not be stuck at home with pretty much nothing to do but ‘Netflix and chill.’”
Cyrus went on to reflect on her 10-year relationship with the Hunger Games actor.
“This ‘dating’ thing is new to me too. I’ve never been an ‘adult’ / grown ass woman experiencing this,” she wrote. “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. … I am trying to make light and like always MAKE FUN of myself / and the public’s perception of me ! Get used to me dating – this is where I am at !”
Simpson, for his part, told Us Weekly that his relationship with Cyrus was not “sudden” because they’ve been friends for “so long.”
“We just have a ball and that’s the most important part of a relationship,” Simpson said in October 2019. “We both met back in the day when we were partying a lot. We had a lot of fun then … but now we’ve found each other in a space where we’re not partying, working real hard and just like [to] keep things healthy.”
Weeks into their relationship, the Australian musician released a song about Cyrus after she encourage him to let the public here it.
“Diamond throne / All on her own / Coffee skin / She let me in,” Simpson sings in “Golden Thing,” released on October 18, 2019. “I’m shot / It’s a golden thing she’s got / It’s a golden thing and I.”

Miley got up and sat on Cody’s lap and started making out with him. His name was called at the counter, and he grabbed his smoothie bowl, and they left together holding hands.”
“22 ✅ Australian (my type) ✅ Abs ✅,” she captioned a photo of Simpson. “Hot Girl Fall ✅.”
Cyrus first called Simpson her boyfriend while she was recovering from tonsillitis in the hospital in October 2019.“BF coming to visit me at the hospy,” she captioned a photo from her hospital bed.“Arrived with roses and his guitar in hand #ImNotCrying #YoureCrying.”
Simpson referred to Cyrus as his “biggest celebrity crush” in a 2012 video that resurfaced in 2019.“I knew all the words to her songs, I’m not gonna lie. I’m not ashamed about it, at all,” the “La De Dee” singer told Fuse when he was 15 years old. “I was a big Miley Cyrus fan. I think she will be, forever, the most dateable Disney star.”
Simpson gushed to Us in October 2019 that he is “very, very happy” with Cyrus. “She’s creative, she’s very passionate about what she does, and I’m very similar in that sense,” he noted. “That’s why we get along so well. … I’m out most of the day [working on my album], and so it’s nice to be able to come home to somebody who gets it and understands you. I try to do the same for her and give her stuff. We always have as friends and now it’s just a little different.
