Miley Cyrus‘ ex-girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter has stayed relatively quiet following their whirlwind romance last year –– until now.
In the lead-up to Cyrus’ latest album dropping next month, Carter spoke to Hollywood Life about her relationship with the ‘Midnight Sky’ singer.
“You know, there’s never been any bad blood between us,” the reality star said. “There’s nothing that makes me happier than seeing people I care about realising their dreams and the things that they’re really passionate about. I feel like that’s what’s happening for her now.”
Both Carter and Cyrus split from their husbands –– Liam Hemsworth and Brody Jenner, respectively –– in August last year and then had a month-long fling. The pair had been friends for a while, but say nothing romantic happened until they were both single.
Sources say the couple moved in together, but then broke up after just one month.
Shortly afterward, Cyrus began dating Australian singer Cody Simpson. The pair dated for about 10 months before breaking up in August this year.
When Hollywood Life asked Carter about Cyrus’ relationship with Simpson, she remained tight-lipped: “Oh, I mean I don’t really have any feelings about her and Cody split.”
She did, however, comment on the Hannah Montana actress’ incredible work ethic. “You know, I think everyone knows she’s a force and her work ethic is something that’s really to be admired so I’m just really happy for her that she seems to be accomplishing everything that she wants to right now,” she added.
Cyrus just released her newest single, ‘Midnight Sky’, off her upcoming album Plastic Hearts.
The only other time Carter has spoken about her relationship with Cyrus was in an essay she penned for Elle last year. “Trying to move past our respective break-ups, my first and only romance with a woman was born,” she wrote.
“I fell just as hard for her as I had [ex-husband Brody Jenner] so many years before. It was that same familiar force of nature; I didn’t have to think about a thing or overanalyse. It just happened and it felt exactly right.”
And while the romance was “short-lived,” Carter said she’ll remain “eternally grateful to my most recent relationship for opening my eyes to this unexplored part of myself, and for inspiring a new level of self-discovery and wonder at all the possibilities of life.
“I’ve been forced to get to know myself in a far deeper way than ever before, and not just in terms of my sexual preferences.”
