Their budding relationship has been the focus of a media storm, and now Miley’s manager has let slip about why they work so well together.
Following Miley’s split from former flame Kaitlynn Carter, and before that husband Liam Hemsworth , her love life’s been put under the microscope.
Now Matt Zeidman, the Wrecking Ball singer’s manager, has said: “It is early, but their friendship is longstanding and deeper than people realise.
“Though they originally met during their own wilder phases, they’re both sober now and are focused on health, work and spending time together. Seems pretty ideal to me.”
Miley, 26, struck up a romance with 22 year-old Cody soon after her split from Kaitlynn.
She’s been very open about the “wild days” Matt referred to, especially when addressing her fans about the breakdown of her marriage to Hollywood megahunk Liam Hemsworth.
Miley, having been accused of cheating on Liam with Kaitlynn, defiantly wrote: “What I cannot accept is being told I’m lying t cover up a crime I haven’t committed. I have nothing to hide.
“It is no secret that I was into partying in my teens and my early 20s. I have not only smoked, but advocated for weed, I’ve experimented with drugs, my biggest song to date is about dancing on molly and snorting lines in the bathroom.”
Later, the pop star added: “I am proud to say, I am simply in a different place from where I was when I was younger.”
Liam meanwhile has found solace with fellow Aussie, Maddison Brown.
The pair were snapped holding hands in New York, and appeared to not have a care in the world.
Shortly after his split from Kaitlynn, Liam retired to brother Chris’ Byron Bay home in Australia.
