Miley Cyrus Confirms She and Cody Simpson Have Broken Up
TMZ first reported the split on Thursday (August 13). Sources told the outlet that the breakup took place a few weeks ago and that it is unclear what caused the pair to drift apart.
The news came just hours after Cyrus released her latest single, "Midnight Sky." Fans believe that some of the lyrics reference her relationship with Simpson.
"I was born to run, I don't belong to anyone, oh no / Don't need to be loved by you (by you) / Fire in my lungs, can't bite the devil on my tongue, oh no," Cyrus sings in the chorus.
The last time Simpson was featured on the pop star's social media was on April 3 when she had him as a guest star on her Instagram Live show, Bright Minded. The last time Cyrus was seen on her former beau's socials was on April 14.
The pair began dating in October 2019. Simpson cared for Cyrus when she underwent her vocal chord surgery and suffered from tonsillitis. The pair were very open about their relationship and regularly posted about each other on social media. They even got tattoos together.
