Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson Have 'No Plans to Start Dating' Following PDA, Source Says

Cyrus also took to social media to share a lengthy statement about her dating life.

There's nothing going on between Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson.

After the two singers were spotted engaging in some PDA this week, a source tells ET that Cyrus and Simpson have "no plans to start dating."

"Miley and Cody have been friends for years. They have hooked up in the past," the source says. "Cody and Miley have no plans to start dating each other exclusively. They both just want to have fun and are open and honest with each other about that."

The source adds that "Miley and Cody talk to each other about everything. They are very close and feel comfortable sharing details with each other about their lives. Cody’s friends would describe him as a 'player.' He adores Miley, but isn’t looking for a lifetime partner or even a girlfriend at the moment."

"Cody and Miley are in the same social circle and both have firsthand knowledge of what it’s like constantly being in the public eye," the source continues. "He is safe to her because they have been friends for years and she feels no pressure at all."

The source also notes that "Miley wants to show people she isn’t willing to change to satisfy others. She wants to be open and honest and hook up with whomever she pleases. Right now, Cody is that person."

On Friday, however, Cyrus poked fun at the recent relationship speculation about her and the 22-year-old singer. 

"22, Australian (my type) abs, hot girl fall," Cyrus wrote alongside check marks on a black-and-white photo of a shirtless Simpson.

She also posted a clip of a TMZ video that shows the pair kissing, captioning it: "Can a girl not get a f**king acai bowl and a morning make out session in peace?"

The "Can't Be Tamed" singer then shared a lengthy statement about being an adult and making her own decisions about relationships, and how women get treated differently than men when it comes to dating after a breakup. 

"I know the public feels invested in my past relationships because they felt like they saw it thru from the beginning," she begins. "I think that's why people have always felt so entitled over my life and how I live because they've watched me grow up."

She continues by expressing that men, "especially successful ones, are "rarely slut shamed" and can move on from one person to the next "most times without consequences."

Cyrus and Simpson have been good friends for many years. Back in 2014, the Australian singer told ET that he didn't understand why people would hate on the former Hannah Montana star.

"She’s definitely, at heart, a very sweet, normal, cool girl,” he said. "We were spending time out at her ranch in Nashville last week and I’m like, ‘Why do people say these things?’ She’s just the coolest chick."

Meanwhile, Cyrus has been in the headlines recently for her split with Kaitlynn Carter, as well as her separation from estranged husband Liam Hemsworth. On Wednesday, she joked about meeting "new potential partners."

"Met a couple new potential partners," she wrote. "Felt like I was on The Bachelorette. ?"
