Miley Cyrus’ relationship with 22-year-old Australian musician Cody Simpson seems to be heating up. Since 26-year-old Cyrus’ split with Kaitlynn Carter and her separation from Liam Hemsworth earlier this year, she’s been canoodling publicly with Simpson.
The two recently got inked together, donned Joker makeup while touching tongues, and even weathered a stint in the hospital by each other’s side. Simpson
Most recently, Cyrus and Simpson showed off their new tattoos in a series of sexy Instagram snapshots, many with Simpson shirtless.
Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson seem to be getting more intense
Cyrus and Simpson have been friends for a long time, but their romance has only blossomed recently.
They were first seen publicly making out on a date, prompting Cyrus to fire back at critics by telling them, “This is me dating” and pointing out the double standard between men and women when it comes to PDA.
After getting inked recently, Simpson and Cyrus shared a variety of Instagram snaps and videos together. Cyrus captioned hers “Tat Queen/King,” while Simpson wrote simply, “papillon.” Simpson was shirtless in the pics, while Cyrus even slipped her hand down her boyfriend’s pants in one of them.
Their connection and passion were obvious in each of the affectionate pictures. Cyrus gushed by commenting under Simpson’s series of photos, “Need. Oxygen. Can’t. Breathe. I. Stan. For. Ever. Ship.”
Simpson, for his part, wrote “death do us” under a mirror selfie of the pair in his Instagram Stories, possibly as a sly take on wedding vows.
Simpson even recently announced a new single, “Golden Thing,” that he dedicated specifically to Cyrus. The lyrics he’s leaked couldn’t be more romantic, including “smoky eye, pearly white” and “crystal dream cali queen/radiant hand vibrant sand.”
Tattoos and tonsillitis
Simpson’s and Cyrus’ tattoos were inked by celebrity tattoo artist Nico Bassill. His private studio, Among the Willows, is in Los Angeles, where he primarily serves high-profile clients.
Simpson opted for a skull, crossbones, and scythe on his chest, while Cyrus chose a heart with a knife lodged in it, circled by a ribbon and the words “Rock ‘n’ Roll Heart.” While the tattoos don’t match, they do coordinate and complement one another. Cyrus also got a tattoo of her birth year, ’92, on her neck.
Cyrus is no stranger to tattoos. She got several in the aftermath of her breakup with Liam Hemsworth and also opted for some new ink to celebrate her Italian getaway with ex-girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter.
Recently, Simpson also supported Cyrus through their first challenge together as a couple: hospitalization. Cyrus spent time in the hospital for tonsillitis earlier in October, and Simpson stayed faithfully by her side.
Cyrus’ relationship with Simpson and recent breakups
After her separation from longtime love and husband of just seven months, Liam Hemsworth, was announced by her representative in August, Cyrus quickly moved on to a fling with Kaitlynn Carter before they, too, broke up after around two months of dating. Carter also recently separated from ex-husband Brody Jenner.
Liam Hemsworth, for his part, seems to have moved on with new fling Maddison Brown.
