Despite going their separate ways, the musician says their time together was ‘amazing.’
The 25-year-old confirmed on KIIS FM’s The Kylie and Jackie O Show on Tuesday that the relationship ended because they were “going in different directions.”
Between 2019 and 2020, the couple dated for nearly a year.
“It was a mutual decision between us, knowing we were going in different directions,” he said.
“I had just started swimming (training) at that point so my life was changing a lot and I knew I was going to have to move back to Australia and she was going on tour.”
He did, however, say that he and Miley had an “amazing year together” and that they remained friends.
According to 7 News, Cody later dated model Marloes Stevens, but he recently revealed that he is currently single.
He admitted that his dedication to his swimming career made relationships difficult.
“I’m single here. It’s a lot of training, full-time swimming, so it’s hard to juggle,” he explained.
Miley and Cody started dating after Miley’s divorce from Liam Hemsworth in 2019 after only a year of marriage.
Following the news of Miley and Liam’s split, the singer spoke out, claiming that they remained friends.
“We are just deciding who we wanna be in our lives, what we wanna do, and so, don’t make it some drama if next week we’re hanging out, getting pizza,” she said.
“We’ve been friends for 10 years and we’re going to continue to be friends, so just don’t make it something it’s not.”
Miley, 29, is now dating Maxx Morando, a drummer with the Los Angeles-based rock band Lilly, who is 23 years old.
The couple was recently photographed kissing in the middle of a West Hollywood street and have appeared on the red carpet together, including at a Gucci fashion show in Los Angeles.
