There are reports this morning that Miley Cyrus is single once again following claims that she has split from Aussie boy Cody Simpson.
The reports suggest that Miley initiated the split, with the 26-year-old reportedly wanting to “focus on herself” amid the fallout from her recent divorce from Liam Hemsworth.
“They are taking a break, but want to remain friends,” an insider reportedly told Radar Online about Miley and Cody.
“She said she just needs to focus on herself.”
A conflicting report in E! News however claims that Miley and Cody are still together, with a source claiming that they are “very happy together”.
Miley’s dating life has made a lot of press this year as she was spotted kissing Brody Jenner’s ex Kaitlynn Carter on their trip in Italy back in August, promoting news of her divorce from Hemsworth to be made public.
Following a short fling with Carter, Miley quickly moved on with Cody Simpson. The pair quickly made things Instagram official and were not shy about showing off their PDA.
But recently their social media posts together have become fewer and far between, adding fuel to the rumours that they have called it quits.
Cyrus hasn’t mentioned Cody since November 3 while Cody hasn’t posted a pic with Miley since November 1.
The insider also told Radar Online that Miley’s displays of affection online were a way to try and make her ex Liam jealous. Liam also recently unfollowed Miley on Instagram.
“This romance with Cody… and constant ‘look at me’ behaviour is all designed to push Liam’s buttons – and to be fair it’s always working in the past because he’s a good guy who ultimately loves her,” she inside told Radar.
“But now he’s just rolling his eyes and washing his hands of her, even as a friend, which of course is driving Miley nuts.”
Recently Liam was linked to Australian actress Maddison Brown, with the pair spotted packing on the PDA in New York City last month.
News of Miley and Cody’s alleged split comes as a bit of a shock, as when he joined the Mike E and Emma just a few weeks ago he did nothing but gush about their romance, even calling Miley his “girlfriend”.
“I think we were interested in each other ever since we first met, even when I was like 18 but it was like not the right time,” he told us at the time.
“We’ve just been close ever since we met. It’s like the first time I’ve been with someone that it wasn’t necessarily an immediate romance. It was a friendship and it was fun and it just developed over like five years.”
“I’d like to be the best boyfriend I can possibly be. Especially for her. She deserves that much,” he added.
