It's been less than three months since Miley Cyrus separated from Liam Hemsworth.
But Miley clearly subscribes to the theory that the best way to get over an old love is with a new love -- or, failing that, a succession of meaningless flings.
About 24 hours after the world learned of her separation, Miley was hooking up with Kaitlynn Carter, the 31-year-old socialite or whatever who was previously best known for her fake marriage to Brody Jenner.
Many jumped to the conclusion that Miley and Kaitlynn had cheated on their husbands, but they say they were both fully single before they dove into the lady pond together.
Anyway, it might've been nothing more than some casual rebound friction for Miley, but apparently, for Kaitlynn, the relationship was much more.
"Although the relationship with my friend was often referenced in the media as merely a 'summer fling' or a 'same-sex affair,' it was so much more than that," Carter wrote in a new essay for Elle.
"While it was short-lived, I'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," she added.
Moving stuff -- but Kaitlynn may have come on a bit too strong for Miley, who responded to the essay by unfollowing Carter on Instagram.
Perhaps to really emphasize the message that she has no room for exes at this point in her life, Miley also unfollowed Liam. Harsh.
But hey, Miley's not just breaking hearts these days -- she's also fixing lives!
As you've probably heard, Cyrus is dating Cody Simpson at the moment.
Cody is a few years younger than Miley, and it sounds like when they met, he was about where she was at that point in her life -- new to mainstream fame, partying non-stop, and just generally enjoying being young and rich and high.
But these days Cody is substance free, and the only thing he's getting f--ked up on his new relationship.
“4 months sober & still stoned," Simpson wrote on Instagram this week.
That may sound like a bit of a mixed message, but as far as we can tell, Simpson is saying he's stoned on his love/like/whatever for Cyrus.
The message comes just days after Miley offered a similar update:
“I’m four months sober,” she wrote in an Instagram Live post. “It’s the best I’ve ever felt. I’m radiating.”
Cody confirmed in a recent interview with Us Weekly that the singers are helping one another stay clean:
“We both met back in the day when we were partying a lot,” he said.
“We had a lot of fun then … but now we’ve found each other in a space where we’re not partying, working real hard and just like [to] keep things healthy.”
Here's hoping Cody's sobriety isn't so fragile that it could be broken by something like being dumped and then promptly ghosted.
Because that seems to be Miley's M.O. these days.
