Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson have moved on from their COVID-19-era romance, but there are certainly no hard feelings between the exes.
Cody Simpson offered new insight into his 2020 breakup with Miley Cyrus during an appearance on The Kyle & Jackie O Show and said it was mainly due to “circumstance.”
“It was kind of a mutual decision between us, knowing that we were sort of going in different directions in our life,” he said Monday. “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. 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.”
Cody Simpson is a competitive swimmer training to compete for Australia in the Olympics. Though he did not qualify for Tokyo, Simpson is currently training for the 2024 Games in Paris. Meanwhile, in November 2020, Cyrus released her Plastic album Hearts in November 2020.
In October 2019, The pair were first linked and split in August 2020.
“[It’s] a no hard feelings kind of thing,” Simpson said. “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.”
