Say what you will about Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson, but they really have each other’s backs.
In this case, it sounds like Cody has been a HUGE help in Miley’s sober journey. The popstar recently revealed she was six months sober, which is probably a lot easier when you have a supportive partner by your side!

A source told People:
“She is very happy to be dating Cody. He is very much into clean, healthy living and supports her sobriety. They are a great couple.”
As a matter of fact, sobriety is something that bonded the pair early on in their relationship. In an appearance on The Kyle And Jackie O Show back in October 2019, Simpson said that sobriety was “the best he ever felt.” Regarding mutual clean living with the former Disney starlet, the poet shared:
“We keep each other in a good place. That’s what’s really healthy about it and I think that’s the first time I’ve had that in a relationship. We’re very, very much on the same page.”
Though the Slide Away singer’s newly clean ways began as a necessity because of her vocal surgery, she told Variety that continuing to be “sober sober” has had other benefits, too. It has had a positive impact on her mental health, and also helped her to “polish [her] craft.” Despite the challenges, it sounds like it’s been an overall rewarding experience for the 27-year-old. She explained:
“It’s really hard because especially being young, there’s that stigma of ‘you’re no fun.’ It’s like, ‘honey, you can call me a lot of things, but I know that I’m fun.’ The thing that I love about it is waking up 100%, 100% of the time. I don’t want to wake up feeling groggy. I want to wake up feeling ready.”
The People insider confirmed that Cyrus has been feeling “amazing” sober, saying:
“During her recovery from vocal cord surgery, she gained a whole other mindset. She realized that she loved being sober. She felt more productive and more focused, and she is maturing.”

The insider added:
“[She] is thinking a lot about the future. … She would love a family at some point and plans on staying sober.”
It’s hard to imagine this is the same girl as the partying, 4/20 friendly Miley of the past. But if there’s one thing she’s good at, it’s reinventing herself! And it sounds like Miles and Cody have actually been really good influences for each other. We’re glad these two crazy kids are happy and healthy!
