Miley Cyrus was all over the news this past summer. The singer released new music, announced her split from Liam Hemsworth, and reportedly started a new relationship with Kaitlynn Carter, who herself is fresh off a breakup with Brody Jenner. (Neither Cyrus nor Carter has commented publicly about the status of their relationship.)
The two were first spotted on a vacation in Italy, and now they’re reportedly living together, according to People. “They live together and are very happy,” their source said. “Miley is doing great. She is moving on. She seems to have no regrets. She loves being with Kaitlynn.”
Let’s break down exactly how we got here.
August 2: Carter and Jenner, who both star on The Hills: New Beginnings, announce they are splitting up. Anyone who watches the MTV reboot knows their relationship wasn’t the smoothest: The two were in different places about when to have children, among other issues. “Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter have decided to amicably separate,” their reps said in a statement. “They love and respect one another, and know that this is the best decision for their relationship moving forward.” The couple had a wedding ceremony in June 2018, but it’s unclear if the marriage was actually legal.
August 9: Carter posts vacation photos with Cyrus from Italy, but at this point there is no reason to think they are anything more than friends. Jenner even commented, “Hot girl summer,” on one of the images.
August 10: Cyrus and Hemsworth announce they are separating after 10 years together and seven months of marriage. “Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” a rep for Cyrus told People. “Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.”
