Interviewer Karl Stefanovic jokingly asked Cody ‘what he was thinking’ in dating someone as high-profile as Miley, 28.   

‘I’d known her for a long time at that point,’ Cody said, going on to describe the Wrecking Ball star as ‘not like a mentor’ but ‘always a very hyper creative person’.  

‘We went from being good friends, to just having a lot of the same friends, to being together for a while,’ he continued.

Fairly amicable: 'Everything ended fairly amicably, and it was just one of those phases I guess. You go through [it] and you learn a lot from it,' the Australian singer-turned-swimming sensation said of their break-up. Pictured with Miley, 28
