The Reported Reason Miley Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter Broke Up Is Not Surprising At All

Well, it was fun while it lasted.

We’re talking about Miley Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter’s zero-to-60 relationship, folks. The stars started spending time together over the summer after splitting from their respective partners, and things got serious — fast.

They reportedly moved in together and allegedly met each other’s parents. But now, they’ve called it quits — and the reason isn’t a shocker.

A recap of Cyrus and Carter’s relationship

These two were first romantically linked on Aug. 10 after they were seen kissing on an Italian getaway. The same day, Cyrus’ representative confirmed that the singer had separated from Liam Hemsworth, whom she married in December of 2018 following a nearly 10-year relationship.

Shortly after, a source told Entertainment Tonight that Cyrus had been looking forward to being on her own. “Miley doesn’t want to answer to anyone,” the insider explained. “She still feels the need to explore herself, her sexuality, and her music. Miley has been working in the studio and wants to blow off steam.”

But Cyrus allegedly went on to start a relationship with Carter, who had just split from Brody Jenner at the time.

It didn’t work out, though

Just over a month after they were first linked, Cyrus and Carter called it quits.

“Miley and Kaitlyn broke up,” a source told People on Sept. 21. “They’re still friends.”

“They’ve been friends forever and were there for each other when they were both getting separated,” the insider added, “but they’re just not in a romantic relationship anymore.”

But why? Well, a source spoke to People the following day and echoed exactly what the aforementioned Entertainment Tonight insider said — that Cyrus wanted to be on her own.

“Miley doesn’t want a serious relationship,” the insider explained. “She and Kaitlynn spent every day together and it just wasn’t anything that Miley wanted to continue doing. She wants to focus on her career.”

As of writing, neither Cyrus or Carter have commented on their reported split. But it seems like there’s no bad blood between them, as Carter left a sweet comment on Cyrus’ Instagram on Sept. 22.

What is Cyrus working on?

The “Wrecking Ball” singer is reportedly gearing up to release new music. The details are pretty limited, but she recently teamed up with Ariana Grande and Lana Del Rey for a song called “Don’t Call Me Angel,” which is from the upcoming Charlie’s Angels reboot.

Fans haven’t been able to stop talking about the track since its release — not just because of how amazing it is, but because it seemingly includes some shade toward Hemsworth.

“Don’t call me angel when I’m a mess / Don’t call me angel when I get undressed / You know I, I don’t like that, boy / Uh, I make my money, and I write the checks / So say my name with a little respect,” Cyrus sings in the song.

Fans believed that she snubbed Hemsworth because he’d repeatedly called Cyrus his “angel” during their relationship.

Again, Cyrus did not comment on the speculation. But if she releases another shady song following her most recent breakup, then we’ll know something’s up.
