Miley Cyrus Just Stepped Out With Boyfriend Maxx Morando — Here's Who Else She's Dated
Miley Cyrus is well on her way to icon status, especially with the release of her latest album, "Endless Summer Vacation," on March 10. In addition to her many years of success on screen and in music, she's also occasionally made headlines for her relationships, which she sometimes uses as inspiration for her art. For example, her single "Midnight Sky," which dropped in 2020, seemed to reference her various romances since splitting from ex-husband Liam Hemsworth in October 2019 — and Hemsworth has long been speculated to have inspired "Wrecking Ball" and some of Cyrus's other greatest hits. Most recently, her self-love anthem "Flowers" had the internet speculating which lyrics were pointed at misbehavior from Hemsworth.
While Cyrus and Hemsworth dated on and off for almost 10 years, Hemsworth certainly isn't the only person who has stolen Cyrus's heart or inspired her music. She was linked to longtime friend Cody Simpson in 2020, but fans may also remember her tween romance with Nick Jonas. (Bet you didn't know she dated a Sprouse twin, either.) Meanwhile, she's been linked to a musician named Maxx Morando since 2021. Still, rumor has it that Morando inspired Cyrus's single "You."
See all the people the former "Hannah Montana" star has been linked to over the years.
The Disney Channel stars dated for a day when they were 11 or 12. "We met on her set, I believe, and we dated," "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody" star (pictured on the left) explained to Jimmy Kimmel. "And then Nick Jonas walked by and it was over!"
During their two-year relationship from 2004 until 2006, Jonas and Cyrus were one of the biggest Disney Channel couples, cementing their superstar couple status while traveling during the singer's Best of Both Worlds Tour. There were rumors that they reconciled in 2009 when they were spotted on jet skis together in Georgia, but Cyrus eventually began dating her "The Last Song" costar Hemsworth, and Jonas has since married Priyanka Chopra.
When Cyrus was 15, she struck up a relationship with Justin Gaston, who was 20 at the time, after he competed on her dad Billy Ray Cyrus's reality show "Nashville Star." While it's unclear what led to their split, some say her rekindled friendship with Jonas was to blame, per MTV. Regardless, they called it quits nine months later in 2009 when Cyrus left to film "The Last Song" in Savannah, GA.
After calling off her engagement to Hemsworth, Cyrus began romancing Arnold Schwarzenegger's son. Per People, in April 2015, the two ended their five-month relationship shortly after Schwarzenegger was spotted getting cozy with his ex during a vacation in Mexico.
Cyrus and Hemsworth met and fell in love on the set of their Nicholas Sparks movie, "The Last Song." They got engaged in June 2012 but parted ways over a year later. Even though they dated other people during their time apart, they eventually found their way back to each other in January 2016. After tying the knot in December 2018, the couple announced they were splitting in August 2019.
In August 2019, Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter, who'd recently split from husband Brody Jenner, were spotted kissing and cuddling during a vacation in Italy. The two dated for a month before eventually calling it quits in September 2019.
Cyrus has been linked to drummer Morando since December 2021. They rang in 2022 together, and the pair were spotted kissing in Los Angeles in April of last year, per People. In November 2022, they attended Gucci's "Love Parade" fashion show, and while Cyrus has not publicly confirmed the relationship, she did share a photo of the pair on Instagram.
"Miley and Maxx are still going strong and their relationship is very serious," a source told E! News in October of last year. "They have been together for about a year now and Miley is really happy. Everyone in her family loves them together and thinks they mesh really well."
And in March 2023, Morando joined Cyrus at two events in Los Angeles. First, they stepped out holding hands at the Versace fall/winter fashion show. Later, they were photographed walking into Cyrus's album release party for her "Endless Summer Vacation."
