Patrick Schwarzenegger, son of action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger, is set to star in the new comedy drama 'Moxie', releasing on March 3 via Netflix. While he has had an impressive filmography since a young age, acting in movies like 'Grown Ups 2', 'Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse', 'Midnight Sun', and more, Patrick is also known as a famous ex of pop star, singer and actress Miley Cyrus. His dating life hasn't been quite as publicized as Miley's, but the couple were once reportedly the talk of the town.

According to reports, Patrick was interested in Miley Cyrus for several years before they actually started dating. Meanwhile, some of the pop star's famous ex-boyfriends have included Jared Leto, Liam Hemsworth, Justin Bieber, Nick Jonas, among others.

Patrick's dating life

Patrick shared with Details Magazine in 2011 that his “eye though is set on Miley” and had a crush on the singer, and the couple started dating over three years later. One of the stories that made headlines around their relationship was that the pair had a brief fling while Miley was on a break from Hemsworth, but they reconnected in 2014 and linked up for real.

Although their relationship was short-lived, Patrick and Miley were in love and Patrick's famous parents had good things to say about their son's romantic interest. Arnold Schwarzeneggar approved of Miley and was happy for his son. Us magazine stated that he was thrilled that Patrick introduced him to Miley. Even Patrick's mother Maria Shriver reportedly considered the pop star to be a very nice girl. Additionally, Maria's brother Anthony Shriver met the couple and also had a positive stance to their relationship. A source reportedly said, "Anthony had a great time hanging out with his nephew and Miley during Art Basel (a major art event held at Miami beach). He said Miley was a lot of fun. As far as he's concerned, the family has no problem with her."

Between beaches and fancy restaurants, Miley and Patrick were seen hanging out together regularly, holding hands, blushing and kissing.

Several reports claim that the major reason for their split is when Patrick was caught getting too cozy with one of his friends on holiday. Patrick was photographed doing body shots off of a mystery girl in March 2015. Apparently, this incident brought on the ire of Miley, and they did attempt to reconcile, but it ultimately led to their breakup in April 2015 after five months together. Some also say that Miley may have been having second thoughts as she was still in love with Liam during the time, as she appeared less happy with Patrick in later photos. Patrick seemed to feel guilt over his bad behavior and realized that he had made a mistake, however, he later called Miley a hypocrite.

What was another reason for the split?

According to HollywoodLife.com, Miley Cyrus' friends were positive that another contributing factor to their split is that Patrick just didn't put enough effort into winning her heart back. "Miley wasn’t convinced Patrick was trying hard enough to win her heart back after the spring break scandal, so she got pissed," a source said. "She wanted to prove to herself that she could have fun on her own without him. She decided a break would be best with the full intention for it to be a break only, not a breakup. Her friends are thinking this is just another test for Patrick to see what he will do. If he really wants her in his life, he will convince her to take him back and not be on a break."

Meanwhile, Patrick and Miley have long since moved on. Patrick has been dating actress and model Abby Champion since 2016, while Miley took to Twitter on February 10 to announce that she is officially "single". She tweeted, "Man. Being single sucks. All I ever do is WHATEVER THE F*CK I WANT," followed by a burst of roaring laughter.
