Last year, Miley Cyrus kicked off her Hot Girl Summer of 2019 by splitting from her husband, Liam Hemsworth, and getting with Kaitlynn Carter, formerly Brody Jenner’s pretend wife. And we know this because we saw multiple pictures of Miley and Kaitlynn on Instagram, kissing on a boat, and out shopping while dressed the same. I believe if you looked up in a PR guide how to rebound in the most public way, Miley and Kaitlynn had checked off nearly every box. But if you ask Kaitlynn, she and Miley worked really hard to get as little attention as possible.
Kaitlynn, clearly not done talking about her month-long relationship with Miley, spoke about her old girlfriend to former Bachelor Nick Viall on a recent episode of his podcast, The Viall Files. E! News says that Kaitlynn swore that all her post-Miley relationships would be much quieter, because she learned she didn’t really like being known as, “Miley Cyrus’s girlfriend” on about six hundred websites.
“What I’ve really realized is now with dating, I’m super private about it. Since last fall, once that whole situation [with Miley] came to a wrap, I was like, ‘That’s the last time I’m doing a public thing.'”
As for Kaitlynn’s feelings about how public her relationship with Miley got, she claims that they really did try to keep it quiet.
“We actually did work pretty hard to keep it as private as we could, but it is what it is. It’s so hard to go through a breakup in the public eye, too…It’s so rough. But there’s also a lot to be gained and learned from that.”
Kaitlyn says she’s currently dating someone, but wouldn’t say who they are, because she’s private about that kind of stuff now.
I’m sure a lot of people are scoffing at how hard Kaitlynn claims she and Miley tried to keep their relationship to themselves, but I feel like I need to defend Kaitlynn here. The two were together for about a month, and in that time, they were seen or heard about, what – maybe two handfuls of times? And sure, maybe they could have done more to throw off the press. After all, Miley was able to successfully trick people with a secret identity for four seasons. But I think they did do a pretty good job, especially considering Kaitlynn is a reality television person. For example, we only heard that Miley and Kaitlynn had been caught making out at the Soho House. A true reality TV fame whore would have made out on the curb outside of a Soho House while shouting, “So, ho – you want to go back to my house to have sex?” while making sure at least a dozen photographers got a clear shot of both of their faces.
