Of all the weird things that have happened this past year (30-50 feral hogs, the storming of Area 51, The Masked Singer), Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson’s relationship might be the oddest. Like, it’s cute! They’re sweet! But also, this whole thing came outta nowhere and went from 0 to 100 in five minutes. To the point where we’re literally out here putting together a relationship timeline just to keep track of it all. Honestly, how else are we going to remember when, exactly, Miley photographed herself with her hand down Cody’s pants? Or their brand-new TikTok couples dance debut? Or, also important, when his rhyming alter ego, PRINCE NEPTUNE, wrote a sex poem in her honor?!
Anyway, in honor of their nine-month anniversary and Cody dropping the big L-O-V-E word, please carve out some time in your schedule for a quick deskside nap, because this sh*t is exhausting.
February 21, 2012
Cody does a video interview with Fuse and reveals that Miley is his celebrity crush:
“Miley Cyrus has always been my childhood celebrity crush,” he says. “I knew all the words to her songs, I’m not gonna lie. I’m not ashamed about it at all. I was a big Miley Cyrus fan and I think she will be forever the most dateable Disney star.”
December 7, 2015
Cody tells GQ Australia that he and Miley are BFFs, saying, “Miley is one of my best friends and she helps with some of that transitional stuff—trying to escape your childhood. She’s super open-minded and I’m working on becoming more like that.”
Like, sure. Okay.
September 21, 2019
Miley breaks off her short-lived relationship with The Hills star Kaitlynn Carter, who she dated immediately after splitting from Liam Hemsworth in August. People confirms the news, with a source saying, “Miley and Kaitlyn broke up. They’re still friends. They’ve been friends forever and were there for each other when they were both getting separated, but they’re just not in a romantic relationship anymore.”
October 3, 2019
In news literally not one single person could have seen coming, Miley is spotted kissing Cody Simpson at some random place called Backyard Bowls eatery. Naturally, TMZ gets a video:
October 5, 2019
Miley hits Instagram to confirm she’s dating Cody with THIS:
Then she reposts the video of herself and Cody kissing, writing, “Can a girl not get a f*cking acai bowl and morning make-out session in peace?!?! Lol sneaky ass.”
Clearly, she’s having fun with the whole thing, but then she takes a more serious note in this message to fans:
“1. I know the public feels invested in my past relationship because they felt like they saw it thru from the beginning....I think that’s why people have always felt so entitled over my life and how I live it because they’ve watched me grow up...but I am grown now and make choices as an adult knowing the truth/details/reality. People only ‘know’ what they see on the internet.
“2. Men (especially successful ones) are RARELY slut shamed. They move on from one beautiful young woman to the next MOST times without consequence. They are usually referred to as ‘legends,’ ‘heartthrobs,’ ‘G,’ ‘Ladies’ Man,’ etc….where women are called sluts/whores! I am trying to just THRIVE/survive in a ‘man’s’ world....If we can’t beat ’em, join ’em! If our president can ‘grab ’em by the pussy’...can’t I just have a kiss and an acai bowl?!?!
“3. I refuse to recluse and ‘date’ from home ’cause A. That’s not fun B. Extremely uncomfortable/puts me in a vulnerable position....I would like to share an activity with someone I am dating and not be stuck at home with pretty much nothing to do but ‘Netflix and chill.’
“4. This ‘dating’ thing is new to me too. I’ve never been an ‘adult’/grown-ass woman experiencing this....I was in a committed relationship for almost all my teens and early 20s, with the exception of a few breaks, which usually in those times I was working my ass off with not much R&R...and ‘meeting/trusting’ people in my position is really tuff. Don’t f*cking pity me, that’s not what I’m asking for. I have a great life I wouldn’t trade for ‘privacy’ but PLEASE don’t make this awkward for me! I am trying to make light and like always MAKE FUN of myself/and the public’s perception of me! Get used to me dating—this is where I’m at! #HotGirlFall.”
October 6, 2019
Cody hits Instagram Stories and fully calls Miley his “baby”:
So naturally, she trolls him:
October 7, 2019
Cody takes to his poetry Instagram, Prince Neptune, and writes a sexy love poem that fans assume is about Miley. And yes, the term “making love” is used, so sorry to your eyeballs.
October 12, 2019
Cody’s sister, Alli, loses all her chill and reportedly dishes to the Daily Mail, saying, “It seems like they’re very happy and very in love....It’s very new, but they have history and they’re posting about each other a lot....Miley is posting a lot [on social media] and so is Cody, so it seems serious.”
October 13, 2019
“I’m very happy. We are very, very happy. She’s creative. She’s very passionate about what she does, and I’m very similar in that sense. That’s why we get along so well. We just have a ball, yeah, and that’s the most important part of a relationship, you know? The reason why it hasn’t been a really crazy sudden thing is just because we’ve been friends for so long....[We] found each other again in a space where we’re both not partying, working real hard, and it just keeps things healthy and it’s good.”
He also implies that Miley is, in fact, his girlfriend, saying, “Any girlfriends I’ve had in the past has always been immediate romance and so it’s a different experience having been friends with somebody before and it developing naturally into something more.”
October 14, 2019
Miley gets called out for using the exact same Instagram filter on pics of Cody as she did on pics of Liam and Kaitlynn. And yep, she responds:
October 14, 2019, again
Miley and Cody touch tongues (ew, a thousand apologies for the mental image) while wearing Joker mask filters in a video that will haunt me for the rest of my life. Or at the very least, the rest of this day.
October 16, 2019
Cody implies that he’s already moved in with Miley, taking it to Instagram to tell his followers that it’s “move-in day.” Naturally, people speculate (as a reminder, they’ve been together for, like, 14 days at this point).
October 17, 2019
Miley and Cody get tattoos together. Which, honestly, whatevs, Miley’s constantly getting tatted, so!
October 18, 2019
Between PDA sessions that have forever blinded me, Cody drops an entire freakin’ song about Miley called “Golden Thing.” And yes, the single art is literally a picture of her.
October 21, 2019
Miley posts a ’gram with her hand down Cody’s pants and no one can deal, least of all what remains of my vision:
October 21, 2019, again
Miley and Cody go live on Instagram, and between a total love fest, Miley manages to say some pretty problematic things.
“There are good men out there guys, don’t give up,” she says. “You don’t have to be gay. There are good people with dicks out there, you just gotta find them. You gotta find a dick that’s not a dick, you know what I mean?”
No, no one knows what you mean, Miley! Anyway, she later apologizes, saying, “I was talking shit about sucky guys, but let me be clear: YOU don’t CHOOSE your sexuality. You are born as you are. It has always been my priority to protect the LGBTQ community I am a part of. Happy Monday!”
October 22, 2019
Lindsay Lohan inexplicably weighs in on this whole thing, Instagramming and then deleting a very shady post about Cody’s life choices.
October 22, 2019, again
Miley debuts a new ring with Cody’s initials. If you’re looking for chill, there is none to be found!!!!
October 26, 2019
Miley and Cody spend Halloween doing what they do best: making out smack-dab in the middle of a crowded restaurant. As you do.
TMZ caught them passionately kissing while standing in the middle of Casa Vega. It’s a lot! The eight other people in the restaurant are probably cool with it, though, since TMZ says Cody paid the $1,000 bill for literally everyone.
Before their biweekly restaurant make-out, Miley and Cody went to Universal Studios for a scare. It was a Halloweekend, after all.
October 29, 2019
Blanca Cobb does us a solid by analyzing Cody and Miley’s body language, and it’s verrry revealing.
“Miley’s hand down the front of Cody’s pants is all about shock value to the world and a secret message between the two of them,” Cobb said.
November 4, 2019
Miley brings Cody as her date to her bro Braison’s wedding, which is all very cute (even if there aren’t pics anymore because they were deleted, booooo).
November 17, 2019
Tabloids start reporting that Miley and Cody have split. TBD on whether it’s true.
November 21, 2019
Miley and Cody fans can REJOICE! Those tabloid rumors were fake AF. Cody low-key shows that he and Miley are still going strong with a cute Insta Story featuring bb Miley as his phone background.
See? Nothing to worry about.
November 23, 2019
Cody is a true Insta MVP and avoids posting a million Stories to celebrate Miley’s birthday and opts for this ONE mirror video:
December 21, 2019
Cody was seen walking with Playmate Jordy Murray in New York City, and although there was reportedly no “physical interaction between them,” rumors of a breakup with Miley began to circulate. Around the same time, Miley shared an old Christmas song that she wrote a few years ago and explained the meaning of it. She wrote, “Was feeling like sh*t ’cause I couldn’t be with the one I loved. Even with a house full of family and friends, I still felt alone. In ways, that still feels relevant and someone reading this right now could possibly relate!”
December 25, 2019
Uhh, here’s an interesting video of Cody going in for a kiss from Miley and then leaning back into his chair.
January 9, 2020
Cody got the prints for his Prince Neptune poetry book, so Miley helped him film a teaser for Instagram in which he revealed that he’s never seen anything he’s ever liked more in his life...except for Miley.
January 11, 2020
Miley gave Cody a vintage doctor’s bag with his Prince Neptune poetry name inscribed on it for his 23rd birthday. She wasn’t able to spend his actual b-day with him, but she posted about it on social media and wrote, “Happy birthday to my best friend in the entire world @CodySimpson. I love you and our pirate life!” along with, “Happy birthday to my favorite human to get weird with on the entire earth.”
January 15, 2020
Miley is all of us when she laid across an exercise bench and took selfies as Cody worked out in the background. And later, she posted on her Stories that Cody effed up but still wanted her to listen to his song. She did end up listening, but she also just laughed and walked away.
January 22, 2020
Cody spoke with The Kyle & Jackie O Show and talked about a wide range of topics including his penis size, whether or not he uses protection, and how he has “banished” straws from his life. They also asked him about his and Miley’s relationship, which he addressed by saying, “Yeah, it’s great. We’re amazing. No complaints.” And when the hosts asked if Cody had any plans to start a family, he said, “None yet, mate.”
March 2, 2020
Cody’s out here answering Qs about babies again, but this time, he told the Sunday Telegraph he “absolutely” plans to raise a family in Australia versus the U.S.
“I miss Australia a lot. I would like to come back more. I will always have a home base in L.A., but Australia will always be number one,” he said. “L.A. makes a lot of sense for me for work, but I will always be an Aussie.”
March 4, 2020
Miley and Cody officially enter the point of no return. God, no—they’re not engaged, but they might as well be because they have matching couples tattoos now.
Not quite sure what caused them to take the plunge, but it’s likely to honor Cody’s upcoming poetry book, Prince Neptune.
If I had to guess, a bunch of poems in the book are probs about Miley, which is why she got the ink with him. This couple moves faster than the speed of light, and I am out of breath trying to keep TF up!
April 1, 2020
In a move completely unrelated to April Fools’ Day, Miley and Cody celebrated six months together. Can you believe it’s been that long? I genuinely can’t tell if it feels too long or too short.
Anyway, Cody marked the occasion with an Instagram Story of Miley, sandwiched between a slurry of Prince Neptune book regrams. (Gotta respect him for hustling with his book promo.) “6 months with you is worth a lifetime with anybody else,” he wrote. “I love you.”
WOW, dropping the L word. You love to see it.
April 13, 2020
It looks like quarantine was finally getting to these two, because Miley officially makes Cody her model for testing out her MUA skills. And according to Miley, her placing makeup on Cody’s face is equivalent to ending toxic masculinity. A win-win!
Apparently, the inspiration for this look is Brad Pitt circa his 1991 Rolling Stone cover shoot, in which he dressed in women’s clothes. We love to see it.
April 19, 2020
Yet another point of no return: Speaking with the Sydney Morning Herald, Cody admits that a bunch of his horny Prince Neptune poems are about Miley and gave a little insight as to what his relationship with her is like. He says:
“Being with Miley is a wonderful thing in my life. She is creative and inspiring, fiercely independent, and encourages me to be my own person too. We are both creative individuals who support one another with our work. Miley also inspires my art. There’s some romance in the poems I have written, and yeah, they might be about her. It’s inevitable that what happens in my private life comes out in my work.”
July 1, 2020
Crazy to think we went two whole months without a single Miley and Cody update, but here we are! Miley and Cody are still going strong, and a People source reveals that Cody’s been really good for Miley’s new sober lifestyle.
“She is very happy to be dating Cody. He is very much into clean, healthy living and supports her sobriety,” the source says. “They are a great couple.”
July 6, 2020
PSA: Cody and Miley are now that couple on TikTok. Check out their moves:
August 3, 2020
Cody posts a super-cute pic of himself and Miley cuddling up in the back seat of a car to his Insta Story and says he’s “in love with my best friend.” Awwww. Dare I say…they’re finally growing on me???
That’s all for now, but considering this less-than-a-year-long relationship timeline is longer than that of couples who have been together for 10 years, expect us to be updating things regularly.
