Last month, Miley Cyrus was hospitalized with tonsillitis, and doctors discovered an unrelated issue with her vocal cords. She underwent emergency surgery to fix the issue and will require weeks of silence to ensure that they heal correctly.
Throughout the entire process, boyfriend Cody Simpson, a 22-year-old Australian singer, has been her companion. A source told People:
"The surgery went well and she is resting up at home now. [She] has known for a while that she needed the surgery. Cody is by her side. They are still doing well. Miley seems very happy. Cody will make sure she isn’t bored while she recovers."
