Mom Lessons from Miley's Breakup

After years of denying they were even together, Miley Cyrus speaks out about her split with Nick Jonas.


In this month's Seventeen magazine, Miley Cyrus opens up for the first time about her relationship with Nick Jonas--and how completely devastated she was when they broke up. (Jonas is now reportedly linked to 16-year-old Disney Channel star Selena Gomez but reps for the pair deny, deny, deny.)

"Nick and I loved each other," Cyrus says now. "We still do, but we were in love with each other. For two years he was basically my 24/7. But it was really hard to keep it from people. We were arguing a lot, and it really wasn't fun."

After they broke up at the end of 2007, Cyrus tells Seventeen, "At first I bawled for a month straight. I was so sad. I just went into this weird funk. And I dyed my hair black. When we were dating, Nick wanted me to get highlights-- and so I did that, and I got myself looking great. And then, on the day we broke up, I was like, 'I want to make my hair black now--I don't want to look pretty; I want to look hard-core.' I was rebelling against everything Nick wanted me to be. And then I was like, 'I've got to be by myself for now and just figure out who I really am.'"

It's hard to imagine how a "relationship" between 13-year-olds could be love, and how a breakup at such a young age could be so completely devastating. Yet to teens, the pain of a breakup is very real. How do you help your own teen survive a breakup like this one? Psychologist Dr. Lisa Boesky gives moms tips on page 2. Plus, check out momlogic's Shannon Fox on CNN's Showbiz Tonight at 8 pm discussing Miley and the early onset of teen and tween love.

She’s too young to know what real love is.
