Cody Simpson has slammed rumours that he cheated on his girlfriend, Miley Cyrus.
The musician was reportedly seen kissing another woman at a club in New York over the weekend, leading gossip outlets to assume that Simpson had cheated on Cyrus.
However, on Monday, the 22-year-old's agent released a statement denying the rumours. "There is absolutely no truth to this story," they wrote. "Cody went out with a friend and all the rest is fabricated. Period."Watch as Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson celebrate her birthday:
Simpson then took to Twitter to further clarify the situation. "We are all gossiping our way into ignorance, attempting to relieve ourselves of the concern that we are really swirling into oblivion on a burning planet. If only we gave more thought to how we may possibly save our earth and less to the trivialities of celebrity culture," he asserted.
"Gossip outlets are the plague of journalism. If more people concerned themselves with literature and not the poison of the mind that is most news columns we'd maybe be in a better place as a society."
The singer was also spotted hanging out with Playboy's December 2019 Playmate, Jordy Murray. However, his sister, Alli Simpson, has since explained that the model is in fact dating her brother's friend, Ryan McCarthy.
She then confirmed that Simpson and 27-year-old Cyrus are still currently together.
Cyrus recently split with her husband of eight months, Liam Hemsworth. According to Entertainment Tonight, a representative for the pair said: "Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers."
"They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy."
