'So, I don't think that I have that co-dependency,' she added. 'I think people that break up and get back together, that's awesome.

'You get time to be yourself. You get time to grow up. I think if you're growing up attached to another person, you never really get solid as your own being.'

The 24-year-old and the 27-year-old actor first sparked rumours of a reconciliation in 2016 with Miley previously admitting she didn't regret the break-up.

'I didn't know if that was the end of it or know if we'd be back together again, but knew that wherever I was going, I was on the right path,' she revealed in an interview on Sirius FM earlier this year.
