Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson have been friends for years, but last year turned their friendship into a relationship. Here's everything you need to know about the couple...
Miley Cyrus, 27, and singer-songwriter, Cody Simpson, have been friends with each other years, but turned their relationship romantic last year.
After breaking up with ex-husband, Liam Hemsworth, and ending her short-lived relationship with Kaitlynn Carter within the space of a few months, Miley seemed to have her spirits lifted by the 23-year-old.
So when did Miley and Cody start dating, and what have they said about their relationship? Here's what we know...
During an interview with Fuse in 2012, 15-year-old Cody was asked who his celeb crush at the time was, before mentioning the Hannah Montana star.
He said: “I knew all the words to her songs, I’m not gonna lie, I’m not ashamed at all. I think she will be forever the most datable Disney star.”
In the midst of her ‘Bangerz’ era in 2014, there was a lot of controversy around the former Disney star’s newly-provocative image.
The Aussie singer defended her in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, saying: “She’s definitely at heart a very sweet, normal, cool girl.
“We were spending time out at her ranch in Nashville last week and I’m like ‘Why do people say these things?’ She’s just the coolest chick.”
In 2015, they both ran in the same circles and became more familiar with each other, leading Cody to tell GQ Australia: “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.”
A fan, @milliebac, posted a video of them sat around a table, with the caption: “TMZ you want the tea? Miley on a whole date with the one and only Cody Simpson.”
According to E!, the 26-year-old had also grabbed sushi with Cody, where they shared a ‘quick kiss’ on a different day.
Miley took to Instagram after the news broke to defend her new romance, saying: “I am grown now and make choices as an adult knowing the truth/details/reality. People only ‘know what they see on the internet.
“Can’t I just have a kiss and acai bowl?!?!”
A series of pictures were posted by the stars, including one of Cody kissing Miley on the cheek, calling her his ‘baby’, followed by Miley referring to the singer as her ‘type’.
Shortly after, a source revealed to Entertainment Tonight that they were just having fun together, saying: “Miley and Cody have been friends for years. They have hooked up in the past.
“Cody and Miley have no plans to start dating each other exclusively. They both just want to have fun and are open and honest with each other about that.”
On October 8th, Miley ended up hospitalised due to tonsillitis, and she seemed to be on her way to recovery when she posted that her ‘bf’ was coming to visit.
He arrived with a flowers for the singer, and serenaded her with his guitar.
Days later, during an appearance at the Tiffany & Co. men’s collections launch, Cody shut down claims that Miley could be ‘the one’, saying: “Oh, I don’t know. It’s too early to say.”
According to an Us Weekly report, he stated that he wasn’t single, and was in a ‘very, very happy’ relationship.
He said: “We just have a ball and that’s the most important part of a relationship. The reason why it hasn’t been a really crazy sudden thing is we’ve been friends for so long that when we sort of found each other again in a space where we both met back in the day where we were partying a lot.
"But now we’ve found each other in a space where we’re not partying, working real hard and just like [to] keep things healthy.”
The hit was penned in an attempt to cheer his beau up when he serenaded her in hospital, but the pop star loved it so much she’s now keen for him to release it.
Cody explained: “She was like, ‘If you don’t put this s**t out, I’m putting it out on your behalf for you. I’m getting your Spotify login and doing this s**t myself.”
The smitten couple posted a story on IG where they can be seen licking each other’s tongues, with a Joker-esque clown filter on their faces.
They were both topless in the video, with Miley just seen wearing a Calvin Klein bralette.
Miley shared a snap of the besotted couple kissing over a bowl of soup, with Miley captioning it: “Soup is an aphrodisiac.”
Cody posted an IG story with the caption, 'move in day', hinting at him moving in with his beau.
Miley had previously shared the house with her ex-husband, Liam Hemsworth, whom she split from 10 weeks ago.
Taking part in an Instagram Live video, they answered fan questions together, with one being, "When was your first kiss?" before Miley racked her brain and said it was 'three frigging years ago'.
There was some back and forth between them as Cody guessed it was four or five years ago at an exclusive LA club, 1 Oak.
The pair finally decided it was sometime in 2015, with Cody saying: "It was probably at your house," and Miley agreed.
In the same clip, Miley seemed to take a dig at her ex husband as she said to her fans: "Don’t give up, you don’t have to be gay, there are good d**ks out there, you just have to find them. You've got to find a d**k that's not a d**k, you know? I always thought I had to be gay because all guys are evil but that’s not true."
Miley's admission shocked fans, leaving many wondering whether she was taking a swipe at Liam or if she was just speaking in general terms.
Miley has been sharing more and more intimate moments with Cody on Instagram and it seems Liam has had enough of being an onlooker since he decided to unfollow his ex.
It wasn't long before she unfollowed him back, and went on a spree to remove Kaitlynn from her following list also.

Fans weren't surprised at the gesture from Liam, after all, she did post a video of her and Cody dancing around in the house she married the Aussie actor in.
It's safe to say she's smitten with her new beau and we couldn't be happier for her!
Proving they're still going strong after months of social media silence, Miley took to TikTok to share a video of herself and Cody dancing together amid weeks of isolation.
"If we can’t get back to work..... let’s get back to WERK," she captioned it.
The couple then performed a perfectly in-time routine to 'Everybody Dance Now'.
