Ugh, I don’t know what to think of this mess. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth may be officially OVER, except that they aren’t announcing anything officially. I guess it’s not Liam’s style to have his publicist make an announcement – maybe Liam’s public statement is the fact that he’s in Australia right now without Miley. Meanwhile, Miley won’t shut up, but she just hasn’t issued any specific statement about whether she and Liam have really broken off their engagement. Maybe it was always going to end like this – maybe it was always going to be a mess. She’s only 20 years old. That’s a pretty sloppy age for most young women (I was sloppy when I was 18-21). Anyway, Page Six’s “sources” are throwing down the split gauntlet this morning – it’s up to Miley to deny this story at this point:
Miley Cyrus has split with her fiancé, “Hunger Games” star Liam Hemsworth, multiple sources tell Page Six. Hemsworth has jetted off to his native Australia because, we are told, “He needed to get away from Los Angeles and spend some time with his brother and friends.”
One source said, “Miley and Liam are done; it’s over. She likes to party really hard and can be pretty wild. It became a problem for him.”
Another source added, “They have broken up before, and are broken up again now. There was drama because she suspected he had a wandering eye. And she recently tweeted a denial that he cheated.
“While Miley has insisted they are still together, right now they are very, very much apart,” the insider said.
Hemsworth, 23, has been spotted Down Under with his “Thor” star brother, Chris Hemsworth, sister-in-law Elsa Pataky and niece India Rose.
Meanwhile, days ago, former “Hannah Montana” star Cyrus was photographed outside an LA recording studio without her engagement ring. She’s been trying for a big career comeback with her fourth album, working with collaborators including Dr. Luke and Pharrell Williams.
Amid rumors of a split, Cyrus tweeted on March 6, “I am so sick of La. And sick of the lies that come with it. I didn’t call off my wedding. Taking a break from social media. #draining.” She also wrote that her new album will “shut everyone up.”
Cyrus and Hemsworth became engaged last May when he presented her with a 3.5-carat diamond ring. But recently rumors have swirled that they’re going through a rough patch. Another source added, “Miley is a fiery character, and they do fight, but she is crazy about Liam. She isn’t ready to accept it might be over for good.” Reps for Cyrus and Hemsworth didn’t get back to us last night.
I wonder if Page Six has sources in both the Team Liam camp and the Team Miley camp? How else do you explain that wildly different theories about why they (probably) broke up? Or maybe they broke up because of different things – for Liam, he couldn’t handle Miley’s partying and “wild” ways (or her hair?), and Miley couldn’t handle Liam’s wandering eye (and dong). Do we have to assign teams with this breakup? Can’t we just say that it was always going to be a mess and they both made mistakes within the relationship and it’s probably a good thing they never married?
