Miley Cyrus Oversharing On Her ‘Relationship’ With Cody Simpson Is Textbook Post-Breakup Behaviour

Don’t try and tell me this is legit.

Miley Cyrus has been on a journey the last couple of months and the whole world has been on it with her.

She’s gone from Liam Hemsworth to Kaitlynn Carter to single life and, now, to Cody Simpson.

She’s been slut shamed, cheat shamed, and just shamed in general – all things she doesn’t deserve. A woman who embraces her sexuality and likes to explore her options should be celebrated as empowered – it’s not 2007 anymore, wake (woke) the hell up.

But there is one thing Miley has started to do that has me…amused.

She’s started oversharing on Instagram. Like, a lot. I’m talking whole essays of text on her Instagram Stories about paparazzi and yoga and full moons.

Like I said, it’s been a journey.

And the journey reached full speed yesterday when Miley shared not one, not two, but EIGHT stories chronicling her “boyfriend” Cody Simpson’s visit to her hospital room.

It’s been a week or so of them ‘dating’ (if kissing over açai bowls is dating) and suddenly Cody’s not only Miley’s boyfriend but he’s serenading her in a hospital room? And she’s sharing non-stop gushy posts about him? Does this feel like a lot to anyone else?

I said I love a woman that embraces her sexuality and I stand by that. But there’s something else at play here that I can’t ignore – Miley is putting on a deliberate show.

I’m not saying whatever Miley has with Cody is fake – I have no idea about the inner workings of their relationship. What I’m saying is that she’s deliberately posting about him. It’s standard post-breakup behaviour. We’ve all done it and we all know how it goes.

Whether we’re the breaker upper or the broken hearted, we post all of our best experiences on our social accounts to make our ex jealous.

Miley, clearly, isn’t immune to the post-breakup game – she’s right there with us on this one. And it’s both relatable and hilarious to watch.

It’s good to see Miley’s smitten with her new beau, but spare a thought for Liam who’s just quietly doing his thing. It always sucks seeing your ex is having a good time without you. Especially when the dude she’s replaced you with is a younger, blonder, version of you.

Spencer Pratt Reckons Kaitlynn Carter And Miley Cyrus Had "A Thing" Way Before The World Knew

Stirring the pot.

Just when I thought the whole Miley Cyrus x Kaitlynn Carter drama had settled down, Spencer Pratt (yes, the dude from The Hills) has gone and stirred the pot. 

How, you ask? By oversharing. According to old mate Spencer, Miley and Kaitlynn have been an item for months. Which means they were together before they split from their respective partners, Liam Hemsworth and Brody Jenner. 

According to Spencer, Kaitlynn and Miley’s were dating during the filming of The Hills: New Beginnings

“It’s tough for me to listen to Kaitlynn complain about people talking about her allegedly open relationship with Brody when we know she had a thing going with Miley,” Spencer wrote in his latest recap of the series.

“She already had something going on with her when these scenes were filming — maybe not physically, but definitely emotionally.”

“No one’s judging you for whatever it is you and Brody do when he’s not sleeping in his car,” he continued, referencing an episode of The Hills when Brody slept in his car after a couple’s tiff. 

“We just don’t want people to lie about their lives.”

“Maybe you shouldn’t have gone on television,” he added. “It’s called a reality show, hon. And the reality is that Brody’s been talking about your sex life on his podcast for years.”

Wow Spencer, tell us what you really think.

In the wake of her break up with Liam, Miley took to Twitter to deny cheating rumours and set the record straight. 

“I can accept that the life I’ve chosen means I must live completely open and transparent with my fans who I love, and the public, 100% of the time,” she tweeted.

This^ combined with the fact that Spencer Pratt is a bit of a notorious sh*t stirrer means I’m taking everything he says with a grain of salt. 

The Reason Liam Hemsworth Filed For Divorce Makes Total Sense

We’ve all been there.

A lot has happened in the last ten years of my life: I’ve gotten braces, removed my braces, gone through heartbreak, made it through puberty, started working out, graduated from high school, graduated from university, and am working a job I used to only dream about. 

All of these things have shaped me as a person and, over time, changed me. We change a lot in one year, let alone ten. Our personalities change, how we view the world changes and, with both of those things, our relationships change. The people who were in my life ten years ago are not all in my life now (props to those who are still around and aren’t sick of me yet). 

When we apply all this^ to Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus’ relationship, suddenly their breakup makes a lot more sense. The couple were together for a decade in total. They worked through teenagehood to adulthood, a breakup, Liam’s rise to superstardom and Miley’s weird twerking phase. 

They grew together but they also changed together – that’s what relationships are, after all. 

But where some relationships can survive change, others cannot. People grow apart – it’s a cliché because it’s true. 

Liam has officially filed for divorce and his reason makes total sense: “irreconcilable differences.” 

According to divorce records obtained by PEOPLE and TMZ, Liam and Miley couldn’t work through their individual changes. They’re two different people who just didn’t work together.

Miley and Liam have always ben a little different – when they split in 2013 they spent three years apart and thrived during that time. Miley launched her Bangerz era and Liam worked on The Hunger Games franchise. They didn’t need each other to be their best selves. 

Still, Liam and Miley found their way back to each other and got married in December 2018. 

I’m skeptical that it was destined to be: I think it was destined not to be. Not because they didn’t make each other happy (I’m sure they did), and not because they ween’t right for each other (I’m sure they were at some point), but because forcing yourself to be perfect for someone isn’t the same as actually being perfect for someone. Sometimes it just takes you a little while – or in Miley and Liam’s case, 10 years, one breakup, a bunch of adopted dogs and one marriage – to realise it.

Celebrities commonly cite “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for divorce. But this isn’t exclusive to Hollywood: it’s a reason lots of people in the world file for divorce. It’s not salacious or sexy or scandalous, it’s totally normal. Growth is part of life and growing a part is also a part of life. 

Liam and Miley’s divorce makes total sense. I’m sad to see them end, I’m sad they couldn’t work it out, and yes, a part of me died along with their relationship. But I get it. I’ve been there. We all have.
