Addressing the break-up rumours, the 27 year old said: “It was confirmed by a 'reliable source' even though no one is reliable in a relationship except the individuals who are participating in it, but right now, two halves can’t make a whole and we’re individually just working on ourselves to become the people that we wanna be, like everybody else at this age.

“We are just deciding who we wanna be in our lives, what we wanna do, and so, don’t make it some drama story if next week we’re hanging out, getting pizza.

“We’ve been friends for 10 years and we’re going to continue to be friends, so just don’t make it something that it is not."

And to confirm they’re on good terms, Cody jumped on Instagram to help promote Miley’s new single Midnight Sky.
