Kaitlynn Carter and Miley Cyrus split: Why their whirlwind summer romance hit the brakes in just a month
On an Instagram Live interview with Whitney Port this past Thursday, Carter, 31, spilled the beans on her life post-Cyrus romance, revealing a few insider details
Kaitlynn Carter and Miley Cyrus were an exclusive item last year, and now, Carter has decided to speak on her time with the 'Wrecking Ball' singer and how her life had changed after the relationship ended. On an Instagram Live interview with Whitney Port this past Thursday, April 16, Carter, 31, spilled the beans on her life post-Cyrus romance, revealing a few insider details.
The duo that was both newly single at the time that they had begun their romance had eyes on them since they went public in mid-August 2019. Carter revealed that post-breakup with one of the world's most controversial stars, her life did not go back to normal like she thought it would. "What happened to me, basically just after Miley and I went our separate ways, I thought, 'OK, my life's just kinda going back to the way it normally was for me when I'm on my own.' I had no expectations that anyone would give a sh*t about me by myself. I had no plan in place. I didn't think about anything. For example, I was dealing with a lot emotionally at that time, obviously, and I really wasn't going out anywhere. I was just staying home," revealed Carter.
But dating Miley means your name is forever known, as Carter revealed that she was still getting photographed on her own after the duo had separated. "I just didn't anticipate anything like this happening. I'm used to it when I'm, like, with Brody [Jenner] or when I was with her, but never when I'm on my own. My mind is just swirling," said 'The Hills: New Beginnings' star. So, when did Miley and Carter start dating and what went wrong?
Both Carter and Miley had separated from their respective husbands when the women decided to start their relationship with each other. Miley had separated from hunk Liam Hemsworth, a tumultuous relationship of its own and Carter had separated from Brody Jenner whose siblings include the Kar-Jenner clan. In early August 2019, Carter and Brody's split made headlines and in mid-august 2019, Miley and Hemsworth made headlines with their split.
Later in August, Carter and Miley's make out photo took fans by surprise as the duo vacationed with Miley's sister Brandi and their friends. The cute couple was also spotted publicly holding hands. People reported that the pair had moved in together and were "very happy!" Unfortunately, the gorgeous looking couple called it quits only a month later.
"When they first got together, it was just a fun casual thing, but it ended up becoming a lot and there were big emotions attached," the source told E! News. "It went from 0 to 60 and she wanted to put on the brakes. It was unexpected to end things so abruptly, but it had to be done. She just got out of her marriage and Miley felt like she and Kaitlynn got carried away."
ET confirmed that a source had revealed to them that, "Miley and Kaitlynn are no longer together romantically. They have been there for each other through tough times recently but decided it's best to be friends."
Carter had also earlier spoke of her romance and breakup with Miley in an essay she wrote for Elle. She wrote, "This past July, I went on vacation with a female friend; the next thing I knew, I was in love with her. Until that trip, it had never crossed my mind that I was even capable of loving a woman the way I loved her. But after reflecting on my romantic history, I realized that I've never really had a 'type.'"
Since her split with Carter, Miley has moved on to a public relationship with 23-year-old Australian singer Cody Simpson.
