Cody Simpson reflects on dating 'first girlfriend' Kylie Jenner at age 15 and meeting Kanye West


Cody Simpson has been linked to a string of high-profile women over the years, including Miley Cyrus, Gigi Hadid, Bella Thorne and Stella Hudgens.

And the Gold Coast-raised singer, 25, has now revealed his first-ever girlfriend was in fact Kylie Jenner, whom he dated when he was just 15.

Speaking to Fitzy & Wippa on Friday, Cody explained he was chasing a pop career in LA when they first got together, and also recalled sitting next to a surprisingly ‘friendly’ and ‘normal’ Kanye West at dinner in New York City at about the same time.

Cody told radio host Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli he met Kanye when he first moved to the States. The La Da Dee singer dated Kylie in 2011 and they split sometime before 2013.

‘My very first girlfriend was Kylie. And so at the time he was with Kim [Kardashian, Kylie’s older half-sister], you know,’ he began. 

‘So I ended up going to a dinner in New York and sitting next to him. I was,  you know, 15 at that time. I’m sitting next to Kanye at this dinner. You know, he’s really nice.’

Cody revealed Kanye can be ‘quite intimidating when he’s not smiling’ but then ‘smiles really quick’ in a way that’s quite disarming.

Life in the fast lane: 'He was friendly as and I was quite surprised at how normal it all was but yeah, I mean, as a young kid, then it was nuts,' Cody said. (Pictured in January 2020)

‘So he’s doing that and then he had those grills and he was telling me how he got his grills and that I should get grills,’ he continued.

‘He was friendly as and I was quite surprised at how normal it all was but yeah, I mean, as a young kid, then it was nuts.’ 

Elsewhere during the interview, Cody hinted he was single and focused solely on his swimming career and Olympic aspirations.

‘It’s been a little bit more mellow since coming home [to Australia]. And it’s hard with training to do too, you know, to deal with that. You know, especially if you’re trying to see someone that doesn’t do or doesn’t understand,’ he said.

It was revealed in January he had split from Belgian-American model Marloes Stevens, 28. 

Sources revealed Cody’s dedication to his swimming career ultimately took priority over his personal life, with Marloes also said to be homesick and missing LA. 

However, Marloes, who returned to the U.S. in mid-November, alluded to a not-so-amicable break-up in a series of cryptic messages on Instagram.

One note, posted on Cody’s birthday, read: ‘Fall in love with someone who will take care of you – not in a materialistic way, but rather, fall in love with someone who will take care of your soul.’

Cody and Marloes rocketed to glamour-couple status back in 2020 when they hooked up in the wake of his high-profile split from Miley Cyrus, 29. 

Miley’s friendship with Cody turned into a romance in October 2019, when the pair were spotted locking lips at Backyard Bowls in Los Angeles, as reported by TMZ. 

The public kiss with Cody occurred nearly two months after it was revealed that Miley and Australian actor Liam Hemsworth, 32, were getting divorced.

Meanwhile, eagle-eyed fans had noted in the weeks following his split from Marloes that Cody was spending a lot of time with good friend and former Australian national team swimmer Georgia Bohl.

Georgia, who is the daughter of Cody’s swim coach Michael Bohl, made special mention of Cody in January, posting a birthday tribute to her own Instagram: ‘Happy quarter cent. Thank you for being in my life’ coupled with a love heart emoji.

However, Michael Bohl shot down the rumours in January telling Daily Mail Australia that his daughter and Cody were just ‘very close friends’.

‘They have known each other a very long time but no, they’re not dating,’ he said.

‘Georgia is very single and very happy being so I believe.

‘She and Cody have known each other for a long time and they’ve been friends for a long time but there’s nothing happening beyond that.’
