October 12 2019: Just a few days later, Cody officially confirmed the pair are dating. "I’m very happy," he shared at a launch in Los Angeles. "We are very, very happy. … We just have a ball, yeah, and that’s the most important part of a relationship, you know?"

October 21 2019: Cody appeared on Sydney’s Nova 96.9’s Fitzy & Wippa radio show and was asked how their friendship turned into a romance. "I told her I used to kiss the TV screen," he shared.

When asked if he had really fallen for her, Cody responded: "I think it’s too early to say that, but she’s definitely one of the most amazing people I’ve had in my life. I’ve always felt that way and for her and I’ve always admired her so much."
October 31 2019: The pair go all out for Halloween and share a ton of snaps of their outfits. The first upload was a shot of the 'Wrecking Ball' singer doing Cody's make-up as he transformed into rock icon Billy Idol. "Makin up my man into baby billy idol!" Miley, who went as dancer and Billy's girlfriend Perri Lister, captioned it.
She followed it up with a video of the pair lip-synching and dancing to Billy Idol's 'White Wedding', which she sweetly captioned: "My Idol."

December 18 2019: Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson have filed legal documents requesting ownership of the name Bandit And Bardot - and fans think it might be for a band.
While there's no clear hints at what Bandit and Bardot could be for - clothing? Music? Fizzy water? - the pair have already set up an Instagram account for the name, and TMZ say, if approved, the trademark would cover everything from live entertainment services to a website focused on live concerts, and recordings.
Previously, Cody opened up about how much he'd like to collaborate on new music with Miley. "Yeah definitely," he told MailOnline. We're looking at it. We are getting all the songs down and then seeing who would make sense for what.
"It's going to be cool. It's going to be pretty much a rock album. A lot of guitar. Working on a project at the moment and recording throughout the holidays and should have an album out next year."
December 23 2019: Cody Simpson's sister Ali denied the singer and Miley have split. ICYMI, rumours were rife the pair had broken up after Cody was spotted with model Jordy Murray in New York. Meanwhile, Miley had shared her song 'My Sad Christmas Song' on social media along with a message about being lonely over the festive period.
"A sad Christmas song I wrote a few years back right before the holidays. Was feeling like sh-t cause I couldn’t be with the one I loved. Even with a house full of family and friends I still felt alone," Miley wrote. "If you feel lonely this season just know YOU ARE COMPLETELY MADE OF MAGIC! You are as special as a snowflake, beautifully unique and I hope inside your soul feels light, hope, peace, and joy knowing how singularly amazing YOU are! Love always wins!"
Well, this all led to fans speculating that the pair had broken up, but Cody's sister later confirmed the couple are still together. "Yes, [they're] together for sure," she told the Daily Mail.
So, yeah, it looks like they're still together (N.B. We haven't actually heard anything from Miley or Cody themselves... yet).
