Miley Cyrus asked ‘one foot out the door’ Liam to go to couple’s therapy

Liam Hemsworth

Here are some photos of Liam Hemsworth doing what he’s always doing lately — leaving the gym. Oh and before I get into this week’s tabloid coverage of this doomed romance, Miley Cyrus is indeed the winner of the #1 slot on the Maxim Hot 100 list, which has been released in full. Here’s the rest of the top 10: (2) Selena Gomez; (3) Rihanna; (4) Mila Kunis; (5) Jennifer Lawrence; (6) Jennifer Love Hewitt; (7) Ashley Tisdale; (8) Kate Upton; (9) Vanessa Hudgens; (10) Elisha Cuthbert.

Yesterday, we discussed how Liam’s brothers, Chris and Luke, had allegedly staged an intervention to tell him that his relationship with Miley obviously wasn’t working and that it was time to cut the cord. My opinion on the matter is that Liam is probably still sleeping with January Jones and knows that Miley won’t dump him, but he’s too much of a chickensh-t to do it himself. According to this week’s issue of In Touch, Miley is trying to talk Liam into going with her to couple’s counseling. Good luck, Miley:

The’ve postponed their wedding, and she’s taken off her engagement ring, but Miley Cyrus, 20, isn’t ready to throw in the towel with Liam Hemworth just yet. “She’s hoping to save her relationship by enlisting a therapist,” reveals an insider close to Miley. “She knows that Liam is one foot out the door and that she’ll lose him if she doesn’t act fast.” But Liam, 23 — who seems to have checked out of the relationship since February, when he was seen leaving a pre-Oscars party with “Mad Men” actress January Jones, 35 — isn’t sure they have a future together. “Miley and Liam fight constantly because he’s always questioning if she’s the same girl he fell in love with,” says the insider. Miley is hoping that “professional help” will turn things around, adds the insider: “They need to find some common ground.”

Hmm. If this story is true, then at least they’re considering couple’s therapy before marriage rather than waiting until they’re married and miserable. Good idea? Most of the married couples that I know who have tried therapy have waited until things are super, super broken already, so they didn’t get much out of the process, but premarital counseling makes a lot more sense, assuming that both parties are into it. This week’s issue of Star adds that Miley is using shopping as her current form of self therapy:

Forget pints of ice cream and sappy movies — Miley Cyrus’ remedy for her broken heart is to shop until she drops! The 20-year-old star has been spending wildly since her reported split from fiance Liam Hemworth, who is now secretly dating “Mad Men” vixen January Jones, as Star previously revealed. In addition to ordering a $150,000 new Porsche, Miely has dropped more than $60,000 on furniture for her Toluca Lake, Calif., home and at least $100,000 on jewelry and clothes.

“Miley can’t seem to stop spending,” her friend says. “She is really sad, and it’s the only thing that seems to cheer her up. Now her friend worries that her costly new hobby is becoming an obsession, saying, “All she wants to do is work on her new album and shop.”

Well, it’s not like Miley (who supposedly has a net worth of $120 million) can’t afford a few shopping sprees and a new car as a form of therapy. Honestly, I think that Liam really is “out the door” and just can’t admit it, so Miley spending her money on clothes is probably more productive than blowing it on couple’s therapy.

There’s other Miley news spilling forth too. We recently covered the photoshoot and some excerpts of Miley’s recent Elle UK cover feature, and now the magazine has released a weird excerpt that reveals how Miley thinks her old London flat was haunted by the ghost of a young boy who watched her take a shower. Spooky.

Back to Liam and Miley though. These kids haven’t been photographed together since late 2012, and their body language at the time is very telling, isn’t it?

    If she doesn’t want to see the truth (IT’S OVER he is cheating you), she should call Jessica Biel to get some useful advice.

  2. brin says:

    Ugh…let him go Miley, you are both too young to be tied down.

    • aims says:

      Exactly. Why beat a dead horse? They’re still young, move on, more fish in the sea.

    • manya says:

      I honestly think that miley paid maxim to get on #1 just to show liam that she is still hot…

    • Liv says:

      Couples therapy and these two are not even 25 years old? Are they kidding?

      Her hair is cracking me up by they way. So glad the 90s are over and there she is, willingly parading around with embarassing hair 😉

  3. marie says:

    she’s so young and if he is cheating on her she can do so much better. just let him go..

    • Jano1981 says:

      At this point maybe he needs to break up with her. They got together when she was just 16? I think 16. She may not be able to let go. I got a Miley soft spot, but I’ve been embarrassed for her lately with her getups. Then her hair which alone may have been ok. I wouldn’t want to plan a future with someone who changes that much on a whim. Then there is the fact he may not find her physically appealing anymore due to the changes. I just feel really sorry for her. At least she’s rich and could go back to being cute anytime she wants. That’s gotta cushion a breakup.

      • jwoolman says:

        If his problem is her physical changes that don’t “appeal” to him- the lad better not marry anybody. If he’s so turned off by a hairstyle change, what will happen if she’s injured or gets sick or just gets older? Or gets pregnant and swells up? Stuff happens. Change is inevitable. Or is he planning to change the traditional phrase “for better and for worse, in sickness and in health” to “only as long as I like your haircut and your clothes and you stay the same size and look young forever”?

  4. SmokeyBlues says:

    She’s not very articulate. I live a good ghost story but I couldn’t understand what she was trying to say in that story.
    She really really needs so move on from Liam. And he is coming off like a dick.

  5. Dhavynia says:

    She should just move on. Just thinking that he’s been with JJ who seems to be the Heather Graham of this decade would make me not touch that with a 10′ pole

  6. Badirene says:

    Dump him, take six months to travel the world and decide what you want to do next, that is what I would do in her position. Travel, maybe back to education but no jumping from one boy to the next to feel better.

  7. Talie says:

    Their body language has always been: she’s into it and he’s looking everywhere else. Although, maybe he’s just not into PDA. He seems cold, doesn’t he?

  8. Tapioca says:

    Miley Cyrus – Maxim’s “Hottest”?

    Gwyneth Paltrow – People’s “Most Beautiful”?

    Either there’s a couple of magazine editors who’ll be paying off their mortgages in full this month, or you should shortly expect to see the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse riding over the horizon. The End is Nigh!!

    Oh, and can someone please lend the poor girl a copy of He’s Just Not That Into You, before she wastes any more time flogging a dead horse…

    • Launicaangelina says:

      LMAO! Your comment cracked me up. I lurk on this site all time but don’t comment often. But I had to let you know that was funny!

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        The four horses that they will ride in on will be Miley, Leanne Rimes, Sara Jessica Parker and a fourth that has yet to be determined.

      • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

        4th one is Aniston.

  9. gogoGorilla says:

    I know people here hate her but I think she is young and adorable and wish she would move on from this guy.

    January Jones? Ick.

    • VioletCrumble says:

      I agree. She’s had an irregular upbringing, but so far, she doesn’t seem any different from all my friends’ late teens-to-early-twenties daughters. I really like her, too, and believe she’s got the self-confidence and is smart enough to pull herself through this. I just hope that when the shopping sprees lose their therapeutic value, she won’t go down the path of self-medication.

  10. Amy says:

    Wow, looking at that Maxim list, all I can think of is someone had a serious Disney fetish a few years ago.

  11. bowers says:

    You can’t tell. Many people dislike PDA because it appears that it’s for everyone else to see which is stupid.

  12. Cookie says:

    It looks like they are broken up or at least on a break. I seriously doubted he cheated w/ January Jones, though; they probably shared an agent or something boring like that which is why they were photographed in the same car. I don’t think she would go for him.

  13. NM9005 says:

    It’s very hard to break up with your first love.

    • Barhey says:

      I really can’t bring myself to like her at all. She’s pretty annoying all around, honestly.

      But when I put myself in her shoes and think back to breaking up with my first love…damn that was hard. It hurt, a lot. It’s so to let someone go even when they’re clearly so bad for you.

    • VioletCrumble says:

      So true. I think that’s what this is, deep down. I hope for Miley’s sake, he ends it soon, and that she goes underground for a bit, to help get over him.

  14. dcypher1 says:

    Let him go miley it seem like he’s over it and his family too. They are too young for couples therapy. They definitely shouldn’t get married either. They need to expirience New relationships. I think its better when u settle down when u older and know u more things and are more experienced.

  15. Anna says:

    At this point I just feel bad for Miles. She still cant seem to get out of puppy love with him. Which, I think, is the reason she’s letting his publicity machine run all over her. Otherwise she has much more resources/connections to make HIM look like as a$$hat party in this breakup. But she’s holding on to straws. Poor girl – this might be silly and immature on a woman, but Miles IS just a girl, still, and first True Love is always the hardest.

  16. fabgrrl says:

    Liam, stop being a pansy and break up with her! Typical guy move, do everything to make the girl break up with him, so he doesn’t have to be the “bad guy”. Not to excuse a woman acting like a clingy doormat, but Miley is SO YOUNG and inexperienced!

  17. Lulu.T.O. says:

    Miley, the best revenge is to live well and ignore him. If he really loves you, he will be back. But chasing him at this point will just drive him away.

  18. Relli says:

    They havent been photographed since holiday cups were out at Sbux?!? That puts it in perspective doesnt it! I predict there was some sort of tussle during that time between the two and thats what got the ball rolling. So maybe the hemsworths didnt have so much as an intervention as they spoke to Liam during the winter holidays when family is usually gathered

  19. Aussie girl says:

    Dang!! I must be getting old! The maxin top ten list consisted of three Disney girls. They still seem so young to me! Sigh

  20. kay says:

    wtf is with that list? Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens? I wouldn’t have thought of those in a million years. Urgh Miley just freaking end the relationship- you were never actually going to last

  21. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    I’m sure I will catch flack for this but January is a confident 35 year old woman who has been around the block enough to know what she likes in bed and how to please her partner. Miley strikes me as insecure and attention seeking and that’s probably a huge turnoff for him. Plus at 20, she hasn’t come into her own sexually the way January has. In other words, Liam is thinking with his d*ck and would rather be with a sexually adventurous older woman than an insecure 20 year old.

    • fabgrrl says:

      I can totally believe that. So Liam needs to man up and break it off with the girl he doesn’t want anymore. Before January gets tired of this shite and move on.

    • Bitca says:

      Since she was 16?! Ow. That’s hard. But making a final break may be tough for him too. Sounds like a normal guy who’s dragging his feet, hoping she’ll get the picture so he doesn’t have to make (& watch) a girl cry & endure those heartbroken sobbing hiccups.

      But this is *really* dragging things out. He should respect that young male back in the neanderthal era who invented the “This just isn’t going anywhere” speech, & yes, indeed, man up. Men can be so lame about break-ups (at 21 or so, I had to cue a guy at the end of a summer fling, when he forgot his lines & went blank. Being a young actor, by reflex, he said “thank you!” & went right back into the rest of The Speech. Might’ve been the only time we were on the same page ;).

  22. Regina George says:

    Jennifer Lawrence and Liam hemsworth umm !!!! Yes i ship that

  23. Scarlett says:

    They are supposedly engaged and need couple’s therapy? If you are in couple’s therapy before you are even married then I think you have a problem. It’s really time to just face the writing on the wall: this guy is completely over it. He is officially emotionally disconnected from her and this relationship. Time for them both to just move on and call it quits. Even if they were hopelessly in love and completely compatible, they are much too young and the odds of this lasting forever are slim to none. He is probably still sleeping with January Jones. At his age, wild sex without commitment with someone who is aggressive as JJ is probably enticing to him.

  24. Lia says:

    I think she’s become too extreme for him, and too needy as far as public attention goes. Who on earth convinced her that her hair looked good like that at the Met gala? I don’t think there are too many men who would find that attractive.

  25. mac says:

    The fact that Miley, Selena, Ashley Tisdale, and Vanessa Hudgens are all in the top 10 of Maxim makes me wonder who’s voting for these things.

  26. serena says:

    Ashley Tisdale? Really?

  27. KellyinSeattle says:

    Miley and Liam are punching this for all the publicity they can get; publicity overload, like KStew and Robert, like Kim K., like Goop…please, Miley, just move on…
