It was a busy month for Kaitlynn Carter.
Less than two weeks after her split from Brody Jenner, the Hills: New Beginnings star made the news for her Italian makeup session with Miley Cyrus.
Photos obtained by ET on Saturday show Cyrus, 26, and Carter, 30, showing off a lot of PDA as they hugged, kissed and hung by the pool in their hotel in Lake Como, just before the news of Cyrus’ divorce from Liam Hemsworth broke . “They didn’t try to hide it at all,” an eyewitness told ET. “There were other people by the pool.”
According to ET’s eyewitness, the couple were accompanied by Cyrus’s sister and others on their journey, but spent some quality time alone. “They were all out on a date, just for the two,” the source said. “They even got a few massages at the hotel.”
But how did Carter go from starring with Jenner on The Hills to vacation with Cyrus? Here is everything about Carter.
She’s All About Style
Carter, 30, graduated in 2010 as an English major at the University of New Hampshire. After her studies, she started a style blog and collaborated with major fashion brands. Hey, Mrs. Carter, has been sleeping for years, but while it was still active, Carter grew a following by posting about fashion, beauty and travel.
In 2015, she and her friend started the e-commerce site Foray Collective. In a recent interview with Vogue, she shared that it was a huge selling point to become a member of The Hills: New Beginnings.
She Just Ended Her 5-Year Relationship
Carter and Jenner met at a party in 2013 and had a direct connection. Three years later, on a romantic trip to Indonesia, they became engaged in the same place in 2018. By August 2019, however, the couple had split.
“Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter have decided to divorce amicably,” read a statement from the couple’s former representative on August 2. “They love and respect each other and know that this is the best decision for their relationship.”
A source close to the couple told ET that the couple had never been legally married. “They never did it in the US, so it wasn’t legal. But they had a wedding in Indonesia,” the source said, adding that Jenner and Carter had been having problems for quite some time.
She and Brody Had Some Key Disagreements
Fans of The Hills should not forget Carter who interrogates Jenner about allegedly telling a woman that they had an “open relationship,” and it appears that they had different disagreements during their marriage.
“She wants children. I want children, but I’m not in a hurry to have children,” Jenner revealed in an earlier episode of the show. “Although I have no children, I almost do what I want to do and live for myself, as opposed to living for another person.”
She Was a Big ‘Hills’ Fan Before Joining the Show
Carter became a reality star when she joined the cast of the Hills reboot, New Beginnings, which premiered in June. The show has just been renewed for a second season.
“I looked at The Hills religiously, and I mean, I never thought I’d have it in a million years,” she told Vogue from the MTV series. “I was the same age as the rest of the women at the time and I feel it helped me see that there was a whole different world and endless possibilities.”
She and Cyrus Have Been Friends for a While
A source told ET on Sunday that Cyrus and Hemsworth have spent time as a couple with Jenner and Carter.
“The [ex-] couples are friends – the four have spent time together in Malibu,” the source shared. “Brody and Liam are both fond of surfing and his friends.”
And They May Have Gone on Another Trip Together
Both Carter and Cyrus seemed to have visited Stonehenge earlier this summer, with fans speculating that they might have traveled together. After her performance on July 30 in Glastonbury, Cyrus called her trip to Stonehenge a “spiritual experience.” Carter shared an Instagram photo from the spot on July 1.
