As noted by People, a 2012 interview with Fuse shows Cody admitting that Miley has always been his “childhood celebrity crush.” "I knew all the words to her songs, I'm not gonna lie — I'm not ashamed about it at all,” the Australian musician revealed.
Apart from confirming his “big fan” status — which, understandable — Cody also concurred he thought Miley “will be, forever, the most dateable Disney star.” Flashforward seven years and that short statement might have acquired new meaning.
Following her divorce from Liam Hemsworth and reported split from Kaitlynn Carter, Miley was spotted kissing Cody at a café earlier in this week. Since, Cody himself has further fueled relationship rumours.
Over the weekend, he posted an adorable snapshot kissing Miley’s forehead to his IG Stories. “Pre swim breakfast courtesy of baby,” he wrote when sharing the pic. Shortly after, Miley also uploaded a sweet selfie (sans Cody) with the words “BABY” — seemingly referring to Cody’s original post. She had previously made a post to dub Cody her "type."
It’s no secret Miley and Cody have been friends for years and though lately, the pair continues to pop up on each other’s social media, Entertainment Weekly reports they have “no plans to start dating each other exclusively.”
Ultimately, and as Miley herself has already made abundantly clear, their relationship is private and whether they decide to label or address it publicly, it’s up to them — but we only have one thing to add: cute.
