Karl Stefanovic takes a dig at Cody Simpson’s Miley split tell-all

‘What were you thinking?’ Karl Stefanovic takes a dig at Cody Simpson’s decision making after he broke his silence on his wrecking ball romance with Miley Cyrus

Cody Simpson Miley Cyrus split in August last year after less than a year of dating.

And Karl Stefanovic didn’t hold back when given the chance to probe Cody, 24, on his decision making during an interview with Australian 60 Minutes on Sunday.

‘What were you thinking!?’ the Channel Nine presenter asked in an apparent reference to Miley’s notoriously hectic lifestyle.

Cody explained that he’d always known Miley, 28, and said her ‘hyper creative’ personality made her almost like a ‘mentor’ throughout his music career.

He explained that he and Miley went from ‘being good friends’ and sharing the same friendship group to becoming involved romantically.  

The Australian singer-turned-swimming sensation went on to describe that time in his life as ‘one of those phases’.  

‘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.’

Later, the singer joked how he ‘tried not to’ date such famous girls in his younger years in Hollywood.

Cody, who was raised on the Gold Coast and moved to America in search of a pop career when he was just 13, went on to date Kylie Jenner and Gigi Hadid. 

Miley confirmed their split in August last year during an Instagram Live clip, telling fans they were taking time apart to ‘work on’ themselves.

‘Right now, two halves can’t make a whole and we’re individually just working on ourselves to become the people that we wanna be, like everybody else at this age.’ 

‘We’ve been friends for 10 years and we’re going to continue to be friends, so just don’t make it something that it is not.’

The public kiss with Cody occurred nearly two months after it was revealed that Miley and Australian actor Liam Hemsworth, 31, were getting divorced.  

Cody has been dating American model Marloes Stevens, 28, since December.
