    Brody Jenner Defended His Ex-Wife Kaitlynn Carter After She Received Backlash For Kissing Miley Cyrus

    "There is far too much negativity being directed at someone who I love and care about very much."

    Last week, Miley and Liam shattered my heart and visions of love when they announced their split after eight months of marriage.

    You can read the official statement here.

    Not even hours after the announcement, Miley was seen kissing Kaitlynn Carter on a boat in Italy.

    Kaitlynn Carter is Brody Jenner's recent ex. They announced their split about a week before Miley and Liam.

    Now, all this happened just last week. Since then, both Miley and Liam have spoken out, Miley's written a new song ~seemingly~ about the breakup, and there's been some shady Instagram shenanigans going on. Whew!

    In particular, Kaitlynn has been getting a lot of hate from all around. To clear the air on what he could, Brody addressed the issue on Instagram. He wrote, "There is far too much negativity being directed at someone who I love and care about very much. I feel the need to set the story straight."

    "Kaitlynn and I have been best friends for six years, and we continue to be. We, like many others before us and many after us, grew in different directions over those same six years."

    "Kaitlynn is a wonderful person, beautiful and fun to be with, always a positive force in my life. We decided the best move for both of us was to keep our love for each other strong but move forward separately with our lives."

    "I respect Kaitlynn and care deeply about her. She deserves to be able to move forward in her life with respect and happiness."

    Kaitlynn replied to the post with a simple heart emoji.

    Love that these exes have each other's back!

    Though Miley and Kaitlynn's relationship status is ambiguous at best, Brody seems to have already moved on. He was recently spotted with model Josie Canseco. 👀
