There were a few newly single celebrities at the 2015 Much Music Video Awards last night, but luckily for stars like Nick Jonas and Ed Sheeran, their exes weren’t at the show. Unfortunately forCody Simpson and Gigi Hadid, that wasn’t the case! The former couple both walked the red carpet and presented at the show, and successfully avoided each other. Talk about awkward!
Surprisingly, Gigi didn’t walk the red carpet with her new rumored boyfriend Joe Jonas – but it’s probably for the best. She may have even made the decision consciously knowing that Cody would be there.
The last time we spoke with Cody, he told us that the single life was treating him well and that it’s freed up a lot of his time so he can focus on music.
“I’ve been needing some time to focus on my music and you know, [being single has] freed up a lot of creative space for me as a musician and everything. It’s sort of like… you’ve got to roll with life [and] do what’s best for you and do what’s best for everyone,” he said.
