Us Weekly: Liam Hemsworth dumped Miley Cyrus because he was ‘miserable’

Miley Cyrus Liam Hemsworth

Before jumping into this story, I’d like to remind everyone that this relationship drama between Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth has been going on since late February when Liam allegedly made it with January Jones in the back of a car after a pre-Oscar party. That equates to over three months of either needlessly drawn out or purely fabricated drama, and I tend to think that it’s a hefty combination of the two. My take? Liam has wanted out for several months, and he didn’t have the guts to pull the trigger, and Miley has been waiting around (in denial) and hoping that Liam would change his mind. Surely, the process has been quite torturous for Miley because there are few (first-world) things worse than being in a relationship and wanting to stay there while the other party is hedging and dragging his feet as to what he or she desires.

(Miley, I’ve been there. The good news? Eventually, it gets easier.)

This week’s cover of Us Weekly is taking a pretty straightforward stance by claiming that “It’s Over!” between these two young lovers. The report follows months after endless back-and-forth between the two parties’ different publicity camps that has wavered between a Hemsworth brothers-styled intervention and allegations that Liam demanded an open relationship while Miley allegedly begged for couple’s therapy. To be certain, this is an utter mess, but Us is standing firm with its latest story. As always, Hollywood Life has received some advance quotes that claim, “They are definitely over” because Liam was “miserable.” Here are some more details:

Liam dumped Miley because he was ‘miserable,’ says a shocking new report. Here is the new insight as to why Liam ended their engagement, and what pushed him to do it.

Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus are over once and for all, and a report reveals the several reasons why Liam decided to dump Miley. From her rebellious ways to their lack of passion, Liam and Miley became “more and more out of sync.”

Miley, 20, and Liam, 23, met on the set of The Last Song in 2009, but their four year romance is now over for good, a new report claims.

“It’s strange,” a Miley source told Us Weekly about the end of her relationship with Liam. “He’s like a roomie who she can have fun with and be silly with — but there’s no passion.”

To make matters worse, Liam thought Miley was “immature.” “She was acting out,” says the source about Miley’s dramatic blonde makeover. “She felt somewhat neglected by Liam and wanted her presence known.”

“Liam always admired Miley’s independence, but this was more like a rebellion, and it freaked him out. She has undergone a complete personality change. She’s basically thugged out,” continued the source.

Liam originally loved Miley’s wild side, but it began to grate on him. “He used to be obsessed with the way she would go wild. But it got more childish to him. He’s growing up — and fast. At first they were yin and yang, balancing each other out. But they got more and more out of sync.”

Meanwhile, Hollywood Life also heard from a source that claims Miley is still in denial: “She still thinks that Liam is going to marry her, even though things have been SO up and down. She really doesn’t want this to be over. He gives her totally mixed signals! He’s putting her through hell.” Further, Miley has yet to return her ring, which doesn’t seem like a huge deal to me. Why does Liam really need the ring back?

Who knows if this Us Weekly story is really true or is simply a retread of stuff we’ve heard already. Seriously, I can’t believe that this inevitable breakup has been dragging out for over three months in the tabloids … with no concrete affirmations or photo ops taking place. Just put out a joint, publicist-dictated statement and be done with it, kids.

Here’s photos of Liam leaving the gym yesterday; meanwhile, Miley was on a photoshoot of some sort. Separate lives, man. Separate lives.

    I believe he was at his/her/their house after his usual “to the gym.”

    • thebutlerdidit says:

      You know, people shouldn’t blame her for thinking it might not be over when they are still sleeping together and he is still living under her roof. If he truly wanted out, where’s the pics of him doing the Robert Pattison “kitchen garbage bag” getaway? His car is parked in her driveway, so maybe he needs to make a WalMart run and load up and GTFO.

      • Meaghan says:

        Totally agree. I used to hate Miley, but lately I’ve been really liking what she has transitioned into! I feel bad for the girl, she’s young and inexperienced with douchebag men, and still believes and trusts.

      • Kath says:

        I totally agree – he is still living at HER house FFS! If he truly wanted out, he should, I don’t know… MOVE OUT!

        I also agree that I used to think that Miley was a pill, but I like the fact that she’s grown into an individual with actual opinions, rather than some bland, brainless starlet.

        I think it was about the time she started tweeting about Carl Sagan and atheism that I thought, hmmm, that was unexpected!

  2. brin says:

    I feel bad for Miley but she needs to let go, she’ll realize in time it wasn’t meant to be. (At least not now).

    • JudyK says:

      Also feel sorry for Miley, but, in the relationship department, they were too young when this started. They both need to mature, date, grow up, and decide who and what is important to them before making a life-changing commitment.

  3. RocketMerry says:

    Man, she exhausts me, and I don’t even follow her gossip escapades closely.

    I can’t figure how they even got together: he seems calmer, more mature and focused, she seems to be all over the place and unfocused.
    If it’s over it’s for the best!

    • Liv says:

      If I were him just her twitter obsession would turn me off.

      I hope she stays away from him now, for her own sake. It’s devastating to think he’s the one and to have to let go, I really feel for her. But this whole hoopla has to end now! It’s exhausting for everyone (including us! ;-) ).

  4. epiphany says:

    Anytime there’s a Miley story people blog about how “chill” she is, and she seems so cool… anyway, I guess I’m in the minority, but I get the exact opposite vibe from her. To me, she seems lost, emotional unstable, and was hanging onto an engagement that in reality was over months ago like it was a lifeline. I imagine living with her is like a rollercoaster ride, lots of mood swings, drama – Liam probably didn’t know who and what he would be facing each day. I think Miley is a sad, lost little girl who’s headed for trouble if she isn’t careful. Yes, I know most will disagree with me, but there it is.

    • Liv says:

      I agree with you. Her latest “style” as a punk is screaming that she’s actually lost. She apparently doesn’t know herself very well.

      • yolo112 says:

        I think her new style suits her quite well, actually. I like it and I don’t think that just because she isn’t fitting in the typical H-wood look means anything crazy. So she gave up hair extensions, big deal! She’s just bein Miley! ;)

      • blaize says:

        I agree with The Original Kitten. Why not experiment with every different look while you’re still young and can get away with it? Being a celebrity gives a person an opportunity to do that on a level that us regular folks mignt not be able to. And most pop stars over the past decade have been really experimental with their looks- think of Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, Rihana, and Katy Perry. And remember Christina and Pink when they were Miley’s age? This sort of thing seems normal for hollywood- it’s definitely not enough evidence to suggest instability.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Oh come on guys…If her style changes are indicative of that then every young person I know is “lost”.

      If you want to say that she’s immature, I agree 100% (she IS only 20) but her changes in clothing styles are exactly what I did at her age and it was simply about having fun and playing around with different looks–not all that dramatic of a thing and extremely common for young women in her age group.

      That being said, I think the only thing that’s wrong with her is that she’s 20-years-old. I think of where I was at that age and I was SUCH a completely different person. My focus in life was completely superficial-partying, looking hot, messing around with guys and getting attention and of course, the drama. Ugh. I sucked.

      I definitely don’t see her as being “emotionally unstable” or having any major issues beyond just BEING YOUNG, very immature and just not ready to make a lifetime commitment to someone.

      • epiphany says:

        Well, I wasn’t referring to her changing hairstyles – we all do that when we’re young. I was specifically referring to her constant need to draw attention to herself – being engaged but making out with girls in clubs, walking on public streets in a long tee shirt and no pants or shorts underneath, getting high in public – she hasn’t had any direction since Hannah Montana ended, and IMO, she’s lost. I thought she wanted to get her musical career back on track, so you think she would focus on that. Also, refusing to accept that her relationship with Liam is over, to the point that she’s tweeting photos of herself in a wedding gown, still wearing her engagement ring. Like I said, I knew my opinion would be the minority, but I think she has real emotional problems.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I have to confess that I did a lot of the things you describe here when I was her age. I hope you don’t hate me ;)

        I guess I can meet you half-way and concede that maybe she is “lost” but I still think it’s more symptomatic of her age than anything. But I’m sure having nothing really happening with her career isn’t helping her situation.

        One of many hazards of being a celeb is that they so often define themselves and their self-worth through how much attention they get and I think maybe they do find themselves a bit “lost” without it. I think Miley put herself on the back-burner while she was with Liam (a common mistake that many women her age make) and now that she doesn’t have the distraction that the relationship provided for her, she’s not sure what to do with herself.

      • LahdidahBaby says:

        Word. Plus, I really like her ventures into fashion. She’s got a gutsy/artsy approach and most of the time really pulls it off. Few girls (yes, girls–she’s not a woman yet, no matter what her chronological age) have the pure style savvy Miley has, and her whimsical sense of couture as a blend of art and badass play. Yes, she needs to grow up–wtf?!? so did I at her age!–but I hope she doesn’t go careful in style as she tempers her personal life.

      • Liv says:

        I think this whole punk attitude seems fake. And I agree, she’s young, she’s free to do so. But I just have a feeling that she’s searching for something, because she doesn’t seem to be comfortable in her own skin. Look at Pink, I totally believe Pink’s style. Miley not so much.

      • epiphany says:

        @original kitten – I don’t hate anyone, least of all you and Miley! If she were a freewheeling college kid who wasn’t famous and wasn’t engaged, I wouldn’t think twice about it, and of course it’s possible all of this is a function of her age, but I’m not convinced of that. I think there’s a hint of desperation behind much of her behavior – I hope I’m wrong.

    • thebutlerdidit says:

      Last time I personally worked with her was at the beginning of the Hemsworth relationship, but I can tell you, she’s very much in control of who she is, what she wants to say. That’s one area she’s very mature and savvy about. Plus, she is extremely fun-loving, and yes, cool.

  5. Shelley says:

    She was quoted as confirming the break up but she is also in denial about it?? How does that work?
    Anyhoo…I love Miley’s new look and attitude. It is sad when people don’t adapt to inevitable changes or growth in their partners, esp at that age. I don’t see anything mature about him to be honest. Besides, in the wise words of Carrie Bradshaw, “a girl does not need to be tamed but needs a guy who is going to run wild and free with her” :-)

  6. paola says:

    I don’t know.. To me they never looked good together, not a perfect fit. and usually when a woman drastically changes her haircut something happens.. And here we go.. At least they didn’t get married and then divorced.

    • Erinn says:

      “and usually when a woman drastically changes her haircut something happens”

      That’s a very odd thing to say. I recently cut off about 9″ of my hair, and lightened it. It was a huge change. I’m still happily engaged. Nothing happened, except he told me he really liked the haircut.

      Clearly, if someone drastically changes their hair and their relationship starts to crumble, there wasn’t a decent relationship to begin with.

      • AlexandraJane says:

        Quite, its just hair. What would happen if something terrible happened, like she lost it through illness. I understand attraction but one feature should not define your relationship.

      • Amelia says:

        This is going to sound so geeky, but in biology, there are these things called ‘phenotypes’ and ‘genotypes’. (Bear with me on this, it’s the only way I can get my point across at the moment!)
        Anyway, the genotype is the genetic makeup of an organism. It determines what the organism’s phenotype will be, and it’s not visible (unless you’ve got an uberpowerful microscope hanging around).
        The phenotype is the physical or functional consequences of the expression of the genotype; the appearance of an individual produced by its genetic makeup.
        I think rather than the haircut being the root of the problem, my theory is that the haircut (the change in phenotype) is indicative of the changes Miley has gone through regarding her sense of self (the genotype).
        The drastic change of style – from her previous pink, bubblegum-pop, Disney image – certainly indicates she’s at a different point in her life now than when she and Liam first met.
        Relationships don’t always weather those changes well.
        So, in short, the haircut (amongst other things) is the outward expression of Miley’s personal change.
        Like others have mentioned, she’s seemed a little lost of late.

      • TuesdaysChild says:

        Totally agree with Amelia. I get the feeling it’s not just Miley’s hairstyle that’s changed. I think it’s understandable that he may be struggling with who she’s turning into now.

      • blaize says:

        Her innocent disney bubblegum image ended LONG before she got the haircut though- it ended in 2010/2011. The only things that seem different about 2011 Miley and 2013 Miley are her haircut and her music. I think there’s more to this relationship failure than that.

      • Lulu says:

        Yup @Amelia. It’s an outward manifestation of the inner changes. I know I chopped my hair when I was done with an oppressive relationship. He very much liked my long hair, but it was still the one thing I had control of.

  7. Andrea says:

    The bottom line is that they are both so young. She is only 20 years old. Yes, some people meet their spouse very young but for many people you just aren’t ready at that age to really make this kind of commitment work. You change so much in your 20′s. From age 18-25 you can literally feel like you become a different person.

    My take is that these two are very young and I feel for any drama between them bc it’s just so confusing and hard at that age to really know what you want. Miley, it’s ok. Let it go. You have alot of time in front of you. You will find love again. It’s ok.

    • Relli says:

      “From age 18-25 you can literally feel like you become a different person.”

      THIS, so this.

      Personal anecdote time……

      You know how sometimes people say things to you that just make you stop dead in your tracks and think about where your life is going. At 20 I was wrapped up in a very complicated relationship to the point it was all consuming. Then one day while I was at work I was talking to an older co-worker and he gave me this advice, “Don’t make any major life decisions concerning marriage and kids right now because who you are at 20 is a totally different person then who you are at 25.”


      At first I was sort of offended because for some people they really do meet the right person early on in life but the person I was with was not that person for me. Because he was right at 25 our lives were going in completely opposite directions and had we tried to keep holding on I think we both would have been very, very unhappy.

      • Andrea says:

        I think your situation rings true for many people. It’s a very confusing time.

      • jess says:

        My mom always said that 18-25 is so full of changes that you’ll be a different person every year. SO true!! I slowed down, change wise around 23, but I can’t even imagine being the same person I was at 18, 19, 20, etc or even dating the same people I did.

      • Brittney says:

        I turn 26 in two months and I *still* don’t feel fully formed… waiting to grow up any day now. My relationship, thankfully, has weathered three and a half years’ worth of changes, but if I’d met my partner even six months sooner (when I was still 21), we’d probably be over. You have to make lots of mistakes and suffer through lots of stupid heartbreaks before you’re truly ready for a mature relationship.

    • HotPockets says:

      Ya, this is how I feel. How much you change from the ages of 18-25 is insane, but I feel like the person you develop into, while in your mid to late 20′s, is who you’re always going to be. I’m turning 26 on Tuesday and I finally feel like I know myself and feel secure with who I am. I met my husband when I was 19 and he was 24. I never like to say that you’re too young to marry, since I married young, and a lot of the time you can be in your late 20′s, 30′s, and 40′s and still not be ready to marry. Age is just a number, but how a person matures and grows is really just different for everyone, especially when it comes to the commitment of marriage. I feel like for Miley and Liam, especially Miley, being a child star seems to really enable any sort of emotional development from forming. Liam probably could relate to her when they were a little younger, but as he matured it was probably harder for him to understand her.

  8. LB says:

    They’re so young and in Hollywood. Who really thought this (or Robsten) would last?

  9. marie says:

    If Liam ended it, then Miley gets to keep the ring and he can suck it. I think she needs to let it go though, cause these stories are starting to make her look sad.

    Was there ever a denial yesterday? If there wasn’t I would think this is true.

    And what exactly is “thugged out”? Is this a knock at the way she dresses, or the fact that she smokes weed? Either way, ridiculous

  10. TuesdaysChild says:

    If they’re not broken up, they should be. A relationship should not be *this* much work and at such a young age to boot. Liam is really good-looking and appears to be a calm and measured young man but if he wants out, he should just.leave. This relationship is clearly all played out and they both deserve better.

  11. Amilie says:

    Does no one remember all those Liam/January Jones /Emma Roberts rumors or did I dream about them? I hate when people act like the one who was cheated on is at fault, I don’t see people trashing Sparkles.

    • Badirene says:

      I agree, I have a bit of a soft spot for Miley and I don’t know why. It seems like he wasn’t going to end it and be the “bad guy” so just played back and forth (Emma Watson and January Jones) to try to make her end the relationship. She’s young and will get over it soon enough.

    • Vee says:

      There are big differences. We have one pic of Liam in the back of a car with January. That is all.
      And all the parties are legally single.

      There is no comparison.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I too have a very strange soft spot for Miley (I have no idea how or why and I fight against it but it persists) but she’s 20-years-old, she will get her heart broken many MANY more times before she finds the right guy. It sucks but it’s life ya know?

      I think this is the best for both parties involved. Liam seems kinda caught up in his own hype right now and Miley really needs to be going out and having fun.

  12. erika says:

    …ugh. they both need to grow some balls.

  13. Talie says:

    When she couldn’t convince him to do some kind of staged pap shot…I knew it was over then.

  14. CC says:

    Kinda feel bad for her, but in the long run, it’s better for her, she would have been miserable. Sure she will be miserable for a while, but beats the alternative of getting married and drag it out in a courtroom, plus money matters.

    And she should TOTALLY keep the ring if he’s the one who bailed.

  15. moon says:

    It sounds to me like he used her…I mean, he was known as Miley Cyrus’ boyfriend/fiance for a long time, and now he’s known as the hunger games dude and Chris Hemsworth’s brother but his work doesn’t make him the A Lister that gossip mags make him out to be. And the relationship made him look good – he was the mature one, the calm understanding one, and now of course he has no choice but to break it off because he’s too mature. Really? Dude must have an awesome agent and PR team.

    • The Original Mia says:

      Exactly. You were a lot more coherent than me. I’m just mad on her behalf.

    • MonicaQ says:

      All of that right there.

    • another nina says:

      Of course, I only know him from interviews but he seemed to have been genuinely attracted to Miley…And he was always very protective of her. I liked this couple.

      Anyway, surprisingly, Liam always wins his auditions. If he gets it, he delivers it. And he got more auditions being a brother of Thor than being Miley’s bf…

      He also seems to be a calm guy and Miley is anything but calm these days. She must get on his nerves.

    • MisJes says:

      I don’t really agree with this. Yes, he co-starred with Miley in his first Hollywood film, and the attention from dating her helped – but he was still always Chris Hemsworth’s brother.

      I think being Chris Hemsworth’s younger brother trumps being Miley Cyrus’s boyfriend in the claim to fame stakes, and holds more sway with the powers to be in Hollywood. Chris does carry far more star power than Miley.

  16. The Original Mia says:

    After all the negative stories about Miley coming from Liam’s camp, I’m not particularly impressed with him. He’s a grown man. If he didn’t want to be with her, he should have left her of his own accord. I don’t know if he cheated. I think he did. What I do know is his butt left her to deal with the fallout.

    He’s not worth it, Miley. He seems like a duller, immature version of Chris. Move on and find someone else. Or not. Just enjoy your life, girl.

  17. Nicolette says:

    She’s so young, what’s the rush to settle down? This is the age to have fun. It hurts but she’ll probably look back someday and be happy it didn’t happen now.

  18. MrsPatrickBateman says:

    An engagement ring is like a contract for a marriage, if the marriage doesn’t happen then the ring needs to be returned. Plus why would she want to keep it? A token of a failed relationship?

  19. Marty says:

    I think when one partner has obviously checked out, and Liam has, then it’s not going to work. BOTH parties have to be willing to work things out and it just doesn’t seem like that’s happening.

  20. MistyNinja says:

    I originally clicked on the link because I thought this was about Annie Lennox. When I saw the hair, I was like ooo Annie Lennox what has she been upto lately. Sadly it was about Miley.

  21. Scarlett says:

    I really think he probably checked out even before Miley’s drastic makeover and this emotional abandonment is what triggered this makeover..desperate cry for attention. It’s time to move on because when one of the partners has abandoned the other emotionally, there is no going back. She ought to just give the ring back..she doesn’t need it and it just serves a a reminder of a relationship lost. The monetary value of the ring is not what is important..both can easily afford it…but she needs to let go. Sadly he looks very happy and relieved these yeah….that’s it.

  22. Alexa says:

    Whatever – we’ll never know what really happens with all of these celebs. However, if Miley was “dumped” – I just want to say “Welcome to the world of ‘grown-ups’ and CHIN UP girl! You got it goin’ on, so don’t let yourself get too sad and down for too long. You’re too adorable and loved by many!”

  23. TxGal says:

    Come on people this relationship was never going to work. Probably both are at fault. I really don’t care for Miley, I find her annoying.

  24. NM9005 says:

    Team Miley. Hemsworth is a douche. Miley is the one focusing on her career, trying to be happy while her (ex)fiancée thrashes her in the papers. He’s not supposed to feel miserable, he can do what he wants. His only dilemma was to break up or not to break up. That was on him because she didn’t want to break up. He could have done it without thrashing her so who’s the adult really? He’s playing this game hard.

  25. MyCatLovesTV says:

    I dunno. I think that Liam should be the bigger person since he is the one wanting to break the engagement. I think he should give Miley the option to keep the engagement ring or not. Miley should then return it. It’s not like she’s broke and needs to sell the ring to buy milk. Sure it is a big dance but so much of life is theater. And good theater is treating each other with respect and kindness even when your heart is breaking or you are “miserable.” Nobody said it would be easy.

  26. mandygirl says:

    WTH is up with her hair? Seriously…WTH? I’m not a Miley fan and I think Liam could do way better.

  27. Shy says:

    You know what? This reminds me case of Bieber and Gomez. It’s the same there. Selena is tired from her relationship with Beiber and wants to move on. But he won’t let go and keep begging her to come back. Same here. Liam want’s out of relationship but Miley can’t let go and keep begging him to come back.
    Sometimes you just have to let go. There were too young to married. And I’m sure that she begged him for that ring. As some proof of their love.

  28. Michele says:

    He’s far too classy and handsome for this hillbilly. My opinion, but her family makes Brittany Spears family look like the Vanderbilts.

  29. Lucy2 says:

    Did anyone really expect this to last? They were both so young, and add the Hollywood factor, and it was bound to fall apart. I don’t blame him for changing his mind, and better now than later, but I do feel bad for her that he strung her along for a while.

  30. Fan says:

    I heard they are back on again.

  31. Happy21 says:

    He just seems so chill and laid back and she seems like an obnixious, try-hard teenager. I just don’t see them together. Maybe when they first started dating but they seem like polar opposites to me.

    Not only that he seems like a MAN and she nothing but a child.
