Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson Hit Relationship Milestone Amid Cheating Allegations

Miley Cyrus has gone through a lot of milestones in the past several years, including marriage, divorce, and a very public bounce back. She’s now seemingly in a stable relationship with Cody Simpson, although rumors have begun to circulate in the past few weeks that the pair might be experiencing some issues.

Cyrus and Simpson’s friendship goes back years — at least back to 2014 when they were pictured having an impromptu jam session. Although Simpson admitted that Cyrus was his “celebrity crush,” it seems as though nothing romantic happened until after Cyrus’s split from Liam Hemsworth in the summer of 2019. 

Cyrus certainly had a busy summer. Following her breakup from Hemsworth, her husband of just under one year, she enjoyed a whirlwind romance with reality television star Kaitlynn Carter, who was fresh from her marriage to fellow reality star Brody Jenner.

Cyrus and Carter were together for only a matter of weeks before rumors spread that they had broken up and Cyrus was spotted making out with Cody Simpson in early October. They were hot and heavy early on and shared a boatload of selfies to social media, confirming their relationship on October 11th.

Since then, they have had tattoo dates together, dolled up in outrageous Halloween costumes, and spent Thanksgiving together, along with their families.

Cody Simpson and Miley Cyrus weathered cheating rumors

In spite of the numerous gushy social media posts, there have been hints that all is not well in Simpson and Cyrus’ world. In early December, Simpson was spotted out and about in New York City with a Playboy model named Jordy Murray.

Although neither Simpson nor Cyrus spoke directly to the cheating rumors — and he hasn’t been seen with the model since — many fans have been speculating that Simpson and Cyrus might have gotten together too quickly for any real relationship to last longer than a few months. After all, Cyrus and Simpson are both in their early twenties, which is young to settle down for good.

Cyrus, in particular, is known for her wild behavior. Still, there are those who side with Cyrus, pointing out that she has been in the spotlight since she was a child and understands how to navigate the pitfalls of fame better than anyone.

Cody Simpson and Miley Cyrus are better than ever

Over the holidays, Simpson and Cyrus found a way to silence the haters: by posting more gushy social media content. The couple also celebrated a relationship milestone by spending the holidays together.

Simpson and Cyrus celebrated their first Christmas together as a couple — first by joining Cyrus’s whole family for a gathering and then by exchanging sweet gifts with each other. Simpson gifted Cyrus with a gold skull necklace, captioning the photo of the necklace, “museum quality for my queen.”

He also posted a video of Cyrus twerking, calling the video “wholesome Christmas content.” If their goal was to shut the critics down, they definitely accomplished it. While there’s no telling what the year 2020 will hold for Cyrus and her current boyfriend, it is quite possible that the new couple is in it for the long haul.
