Kaitlynn Carter burst onto the scene not because of her role in reality TV reboot The Hills: New Beginnings, but because of her whirlwind relationship with Miley Cyrus which began shortly after the two announced their respective separations from Brody Jenner and Liam Hemsworth in August and continued on for six weeks until Miley started (very publicly) dating Aussie singer Cody Simpson.
Given that Miley and Kaitlynn's romance was reportedly very full-on - there were rumours the two had moved in together in Los Angeles, they attended both the MTV VMAs and New York Fashion Week as a duo and celebrated Kaitlynn's birthday with sweet PDA-filled photos - it makes sense the reality TV star would be feeling a little miffed at how fast Miley has moved on, something she seemed to hint at overnight on Instagram.
Firstly, Kaitlynn’s best friend, former Bachelor USA contestant Becca Tilley, spoke on her podcast, Scrubbing In, about Miley being disrespectful to Kaitlynn with how publicly she's being with her new relationship (let's also spare a thought for Liam here, people). “Yeah, I don’t know. I’m friends with Kaitlynn, so,” Becca said. “I think when you’re in a relationship or, like, seen with anyone, like, out of respect to that person, it’s maybe, like....”
“Obviously, Miley shouldn’t have to date in her home,” she continued. “But it’s like, you know there’s photos everywhere, you know?”
Shortly after, Kaitlynn took to Instagram to share a cryptic quote by columnist Ann Landers (also known as Eppie Lederer) to her Instagram Story.
"Love is friendship that has caught fire," it reads (Miley and Kaitlynn were friends for years before things became romantic). "It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing, and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.”
There was also a TMZ report last week that stated Kaitlynn was "unbothered" by Miley and Cody's public romance, but that she had "expressed concern over Miley's behaviour to friends" and "she's worried for her well-being."
As for Miley and Cody? They're now officially boyfriend and girlfriend and posting many a cute selfie.
