Liam Hemsworth on Miley Cyrus: ‘I wish her nothing but health and happiness’

World Premiere Of Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures "Avengers: Endgame"

It’s worth noting that the statement announcing Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s split came from Miley’s rep, though I saw the statement credited as a “joint statement.” It was not. Miley got to announce the split, seemingly on her time table, and she got to announce it in a way that made it look like she was already moving on Kaitlynn Jenner. Miley’s rep sent this out to media outlets this weekend: “Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.”

There were claims that Miley sprang this on Liam, which… she did not. I believe the reports about Miley and Liam hitting a rough patch for the past few months. I think Miley is problematic AF, but I don’t think she would announce their split without giving Liam any kind of warning or heads up. In fact, I think this is why Liam made the trip to Australia – he wanted to be with family when Miley announced it. Anyway, Liam finally got around to issuing some kind of statement. He posted this message to an Instagram pic of a sunset:

Hi all

Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward.

This is a private matter and I have not made, nor will I be making, any comments to any journalists or media outlets. Any reported quotes attributed to me are false. Peace and Love.

I think he means it – he cared about Miley and probably still does. For as much as we talk about how Miley sheds personas and pretends to be various pop archetypes, I feel like Liam often cast himself as “the good guy” who was just trying to be Miley’s stabilizing force. Is that who he really is? I don’t know. Some people argued that Liam will probably paint Miley as promiscuous and unstable, like he might have done during their last big breakup. I never really thought that was ON Liam though – that was Miley’s own branding, or failed branding. And besides that, it’s pretty clear that Miley actually did leave Liam for Kaitlynn Carter, so I feel like Liam has a right to be hurt by that betrayal.

    He is winning the PR war if it is a war. If course I assume Miley is fine with the attention as long as it keeps coming. She is a singer and can afford scandal whereas he needs to be more likable to get cast in movies at this point.

    • xdanix says:

      I’m not sure it’s any PR war or act, or whatever, just sounds like a very simple, decent statement (though I’d argue he doesn’t really need to do much of anything to look “good” in comparison- I get that Miley has to deal the way she has to deal, and I believe she is sad and hurting just like he is, but she’s her own worst enemy with her antics in terms of how she’s coming across.) He’s looked sad in a lot of pap pictures by himself for the past couple months, when nobody in the media was even questioning anything, so I don’t think he’s putting on a sad act or anything- I think he really is sad. I’m surprised it took this long for it the news to come out though- he hasn’t been wearing his wedding ring since June. He usually tried to shove his hand in a pocket or keep it angled away from cameras when he could, but it was obvious every time once I noticed one time- no ring. I wonder would they have waited longer to announce if not for the pictures of Miley’s holiday coming out (or did she do that so there was no going back?) I’m sad for them both.

      • Ennie says:

        But the pics were so obviously staged, they are practically posing for them. Most probably she hired the photographer and gave him a heads up that she was revealing their split. That Brody Jenner comment she put in his instagram was probably trying to leave Liam out if this, or at least that’s what I thought.

      • xdanix says:


        Oh, I think they look pretty staged and attention-grabby too! That’s why I sort of wonder was it a bit of a “burn it all down” kind of move for her- like I said, Liam hasn’t been wearing his wedding ring in months. He hasn’t been at her performances or been with her family. I think he’s been seen with her ONE time in the last few months. He’s been spending more and more time in Australia without her. I was waiting for the DM or some other rag to pick up on it much sooner, tbh. And yet there was very little speculation apart from some fans wondering, and no announcement until those pictures came out. I wondered were they just quietly going to live apart and hope that the media would continue to not pick up on it. But then the holiday happened and the split news was everywhere.

  2. Boxy Lady says:

    He’s taking the high road. Good for him.

    • Ravensdaughter says:

      Classy, not trashy, like his soon-to-be ex-wife.

    • Jane says:

      ^This. He has class and she frequently acts like an a**.

      • Kathryn says:

        He also cheated on her multiple times which is why they broke off their engagement but sure, it’s all her

    • Chaine says:

      Or at the very least the PR person that writes his statements is taking the high road!

    • Sierra says:

      Snort – he has to because she has dirt on him.

      Liam is an equally notorious party boy. He just hides is from the public eye.

    • AnnaKist says:

      Sierra: I’ve no idea whether that’s true or not, but the Hemsworth family is known to be inherently and thoroughly decent. I doubt any of them would publicly talk schitt about anyone.

  3. Purplehazeforever says:

    I waited to comment on this. There are always three sides: his, hers & the truth. I read the comments yesterday & I was taken aback at some of the comments. Miley’s rip off of hip hop/ appropriation of black culture with her album during her “edgy” years should not be confused with her coming out as pansexual. Is she a jerk? Yes. Can she sing? Yes. People can disagree & that’s okay. However, Liam isn’t this wholesome, great saint everyone made him out to be. According to something I heard yesterday, Miley wanted to go therapy & he refused. If this is true, was she supposed to stay with him & ignore the fact it wasn’t working? When they got back together, it appeared she changed to get him back. Always problematic. Stop blaming Miley…it takes two to make a relationship work. As for kids being an issue, Miley has stated for a few years now she didn’t want kids.. I’m surprised this is now an issue.

    • Otaku fairy... says:

      Truth. It’s interesting that when he moved on quickly and publicly with Eiza Gonzales before, the general response was a shoulder shrug and ” Nice guy Liam is just moving on from a clingy soiled towel, just like in sex ed. Good for him. Nbd. It’s all her fault.” But now to a lot of those same people, her doing the same thing with a woman, suddenly it’s too much and being called ‘abuse’, ‘bullying’, and ‘cruel’, and something that needs curing.

      The little Incel trend of crying ‘abuser!’ every time a female celebrity, influencer, ‘e-girl’, or woman with any kind of public presence openly moves on from an ex to a new partner/boyfriend/girlfriend has nothing to do with empathy, and everything to do with patriarchal entitlement/old-fashioned people being a little too hateful and possessive about bodies that aren’t theirs, & that don’t have access to. That applies to toxic fan reactions to the girlfriends of boybanders, athletes, and actors too.

      • Arizona says:

        Weren’t they officially broken up by the time Liam was photographed with Eiza though? Because to me, the issue is that the photos came out before they announced their split. And they were newly married at this point.

        I haven’t seen anyone saying it’s abusive for her to be moving on so quickly (Edit: I take it back, I just saw one comment on the other post), but it’s definitely not a good look. Especially since the person she moved on with was part of a couple they had been friends with for years. It seems insensitive, at least.

      • Otaku fairy... says:

        When people announce the split publicly often comes after when they announce it to each other privately though, especially with famous people. Last time around, they waited a while to announce the split publicly. This time, they were married, last time they were engaged, but the action is the same. I don’t see either one of them as victims over it, and neither one of them has claimed victimhood over it. But even when things are announced publicly, people have a pattern of treating guys like victims when their famous female exes get with someone else and making the girls out to be villanesses for doing what they want with their bodies, even when the guy doesn’t have mental health issues.
        A couple of people here and elsewhere have been equating this with being abused over the past few days, and a lot of them are people with histories of misogyny. If it wasn’t cruel and abusive when he did it, (it wasn’t), then it can’t suddenly be cruel and abusive when she does it or when certain other women do it.

    • Tanya says:

      What’s there to work on in therapy, though? She wants to bang other chicks, he doesn’t want an open marriage. It’s an incompatibility that can’t be resolved. Better to just end things.

      • ans says:

        Wow Tanya, that’s quite an assumption to make. What’s there to work on in therapy? Well gee, my husband and I have a good relationship and I can think of about 80 things!

    • Tiffany :) says:

      The difference is, you are making a lot of assumptions in order to justify painting Liam as “the bad guy”. On the other hand, people are judging Miley by her public actions, so no assumptions needed.

      • ans says:

        I don’t think she’s painting him as a bad guy. She’s just saying that we don’t know what goes on behind closed doors, or that simply because she’s “wild,” he’s the good guy/victim of this situation.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I think with this comment, she is painting him as the bad guy:
        “Liam isn’t this wholesome, great saint everyone made him out to be.”

  4. They did the splitting maturely. Good-luck to the both if them anyways.

    But am kind of confused on who Miley Cyrus wants to start dating currently

  5. Chrissy says:

    She is on drugs and looks awful. She does need some health and happiness and he knows it

    • Otaku fairy... says:

      I think you’re right about that, and yeah she does look awful- both style-wise and health-wise.

    • C says:

      You nailed! There are two blind items about it. She’s on drugs again.

    • tealily says:

      That was my thought too. “Health and happiness” is perhaps pointed.

    • Penn says:

      I wouldn’t doubt it. Miley is so thirsty, tacky, and gross that she and her LOOK AT ME, GIVE ME ATTENTION antics are making her out to be the bad guy here, and Liam by default, looks like the out-upon party. I’m sure he’s not Mr Innocent, but if he was acting out and slobbering all over a new lover while she was keeping quiet, we would all be disgusted with him instead.

  6. Sam says:

    This makes me so sad.

    I did kind of a deep dive into her instagram yesterday after the post with comments about her not wearing her wedding ring. I saw posts as far back as April/May in which she is not wearing her ring. I think they’ve been separated for a while.

    • Alexandria says:

      I don’t wear my ring because I’m afraid of losing it. It’s going to be 10 years.

      I hope this will end well unlike Brangelina (I see you Brad). I know Miley is problematic and she is wrong for appropriating black culture. But I hope she grows. I was very immature at her age. I disliked feminism and I believe I was a casual racist. I was one of those who victim blamed. I am not perfect now but I have learnt so much, especially after reading Celebitchy.

      • Joanna says:

        It takes a lot of guts to admit that. Glad to hear you’ve grown. I think there’s a lot of stuff us white people say or do sometimes that comes from a certain upbringing and you don’t even realize the background behind it. In my case, I realized certain sayings/stereotyping came from a racist place. And I had never realized it.

    • xdanix says:

      @Sam I said this in another comment above, but I think you’re right, because Liam hasn’t been wearing his ring since June. And I would take that as actually more significant, because she sometimes didn’t wear hers, she’d wear other rings in its place or none at all sometimes, but he ALWAYS wore his. But since June, his has been nowhere to be seen.

  7. Ennie says:

    I wish him well. I hope she finds peace, this all “evolving” schtick strikes me as that she’s looking for something that she probably doesn’t even know what it is. I think her childhood left her a bit damaged. One think is to like this, or that, another one is to be committed to your relationship, and in the interviews she seemed to be bursting out of her own seams to demonstrate she was still oh so edgy and still wild miley who was conforming to be vegetarian (being with him) while still loving bacon. So not nice. They should really have straightened things out before getting married, but maybe she doesn’t know where her evolution will take her, better not to be attached to anyone.

  8. Cee says:

    With a breakup people only get one side of the story and some don’t really know the person the way a parent or partner does, so it’s easy to take words at face value and vilify the other person. My ex was abusive towards me; the last time I saw him things had escalated and I panicked – I had to put my car in reverse in order to get away. Word got to me he painted me as an unstable person who almost ran him over with her car. He failed to mention what he was doing in order for me to go into survival mode and get out of there. Not surprisingly, his family has kept their silence because they know exactly who he is and what he is capable of. So, no judgement on Miley nor Liam and their part in the breakup.

  9. Kebbie says:

    I think his statement was mostly so he could deny DM Australia’s quote claiming he said “You don’t know what it’s like. I don’t want to talk about it, mate.”

    I think she needs to figure out who she is, for real this time, and he needs to move on. They’ve always had this on and off thing and I’m not sure that dynamic is ever going to evolve into something that lasts forever. They aren’t going to suddenly click into place and be stable together.

    They obviously want very different things, I’m not sure therapy was going to change that.

  10. The Recluse says:

    Whatever is going on, going straight from one relationship into another does not solve one’s problems. It just muddies up the water even further.

  11. Lex says:

    Liam. We share the exact same bday and are both Aussie. I see what needs to happen here.

  12. Lizzie says:

    i’m going to WK for miley here. i think they have a tale as old as time in that they loved each other as kids but grew up to be different people. no matter what caused the split – the root cause is that they grew up in different directions. with all their on and off i think they both tried to compromise part of themselves to make it work and in the end that isn’t enough. she has clearly had to diminish part of herself for him to see her in a more traditional light and he should get credit for trying to be open about her sexuality that he might not understand and in his heart can’t accept in his marriage. the fire brought them closer together than ever but when the rush of that tragedy wore off all the problems were still there. i think she is over the top but i also think that is truly “her” and the way she’s acting might seem immature or pointed but they might also just be that she’s just living as her self and it seems extreme b/c she has been holding it back for the last few years…for him.

  13. Sarah says:

    She looks strung out. Good possibility that Liam left but agreed to let her to make all of the announcements to allow some face-saving on her end.

    • Tonya says:

      Yeah she does look like she is strung out, not operating on a full nights sleep. Her skin tone really gives it away. I’ve seen people with that ashey look that were abusing cocaine and meth behind all of our backs and were up for days at time.

  14. Tiffany :) says:

    “she was already moving on Kaitlynn Jenner.“

    Wrong last name! 😉

  15. BayTampaBay says:

    Kaitlynn Carter or Kaitlynn Jenner?????

  16. Sesame says:

    “Ever-evolving” omg I rolled my eyes so much at her rep’s statement. Hardly revolutionary what she’s going through in this day and age.

    • Arizona says:

      Yeah, I didn’t think that it was a joint statement because it was pretty clear from how it was worded that it came from her camp lol.

  17. Dani says:

    It doesn’t matter who is right or wrong or what the truth is – she DOES seem unstable with all the posts, comments and pics. He’s taking the high road and everything that is said about her from here on out is her own doing. So if she does look promiscuous or unhinged etc etc…she has no one to blame but herself.

    • Otaku fairy... says:

      Anything misogynistic people choose to say or do is on them, not on women for being immodest. We’re all responsible for our own bigotry and biases. Same with homophobia, fat-shaming, or anything else.

  18. Kitty says:

    Liam wanted a girl that would hide away and be a good wife, not show him up too much just like his brother Chris. I like him and I feel for him but he should have realized that was never going to be Miley. She is not going to move to Australia, have a couple kids and be a good girl for him. Not that there is anything wrong with the life Liam wanted it’s just NOT Miley and we all can see that! I do not think there is anything wrong with Miley, sometimes she is cringe but she has a lot of compassion and does charity work that should get more attention. I also think Liam was always jealous of her fame, he had to live in the shadow of his brother and wife which can’t be easy.

    • Ennie says:

      I think you project too mcuh, he’s known her for years. I think the issues go beyond her acting up as a good wife, she was talking too much about settling, and finding other genres attractive

    • Kebbie says:

      He moved to Malibu, he married her in Tennessee, he became a vegan and raised a slew of animals with her. I don’t see any evidence that he expected her to change for him or to move to Australia and have his kids. She said their marriage was modern, why not just take her word for it?

    • Joanna says:

      I agree w you Kitty

  19. EK says:

    Her whole vibe right now reads to me as “desperate Madonna impersonator” from her appearance, to her desperation for edgy controversy. And just like Madonna, she will continue to squander whatever actual talent she has in pursuit of said controversy, and end up a washed-up stunt queen. Whatever the truth behind the scenes, Liam has always appeared to be the stable, traditionally handsome man who put up with her antics for love. He will have no problem eventually moving on and settling down and we will probably not see too much more (gossip-wise) from him.

    • Dee Kay says:

      I don’t know if this scenario will happen to Miley, but your description of what happened to Madonna is spot-on. “Washed-up stunt queen,” yup. My tween 80s self will always be a little bit sad that Madonna didn’t become a cool sage elder lady.

  20. EmmaC says:

    My take is that Miley wanted counselling because she wanted a different kind of marriage (an open marriage) so if Liam doesn’t want that then no amount of counselling will change his mind. Plus I read she’s back on drugs and that got back together when she was sober so maybe a contributing factor

  21. tw says:

    My not-professional opinion is that Miley is bipolar and she self medicates with weed and other drugs.

    • Kebbie says:

      I’ve never heard of her going through any kind of depressive phases. Has she talked about depression? If she’s got a mental illness my money would be on a personality disorder, not bipolar disorder. But I don’t know enough about her.

      • Jaded says:

        I think she’s got a severe case of borderline/narcissistic/histrionic personality disorder and dealing with someone with it is like living under a volcano. My sister had it big time and made my life a living hell growing up. She eventually drank and drugged herself to death.

      • tw says:

        True, maybe it’s some kind of personality disorder. It’s something.

      • Otaku fairy... says:

        How predictably dated.

  22. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    I don’t for one second believe the story she wanted to go to marriage counseling and he didn’t. Everything Miley does is for attention. She married him for attention and she seemed to immediately try to distant herself from the marriage immediately after. Hopefully this time he doesn’t take her back when she’s bored with liking girls and wants him back again like last time.

  23. Myra says:

    Nice guys finish last…Miley is mad at something, wonder what it is???

  24. LuvSpaghetti says:

    I’m in the industry and frequently work with a lot of people who know & work with Miley. I’ve heard a lot about her over the years and it’s always pretty consistent. If you want a version closer to the truth, here it is…

    They love each other and he’s actually cool with her non-traditional ways. But she is a well known addict and when she’s using, she likes to hook up with women and act really wild, not really becoming for a married person. They are not in an open marriage from what I hear. She’s very much an attention seeker and it gets worse when she’s using. (Do you all remember when she was filmed finger-banging some model, outside…in public(!) and she just looked over at the camera and smiled and kept going? She was using back then) I actually do believe that she’s not willing to go to counseling bc she’s not ready to confront or view her addiction as a “problem”. Her family is incredibly messed up and are her biggest enablers, especially her idiot mother. This woman makes the “cool mom” on Mean Girls look like June Cleaver.

    The fact that he wished her HEALTH (1st) and then happiness jumped out at me and just cemented what I’ve always heard about them. He seems like a good guy (I haven’t heard a ton about him tho, but never anything negative) and I don’t think it’s her fault that she grew up to behave so trashy and with addictions, that’s what she saw and learned from her parents. That is her normal, but at some point she has to grow up and own her sh*t.

  25. Bahare says:

    I have seen this situation in many couples (including me) where they can’t stay together and can’t seem to break up and after many years together they are finally married but split up quickly. Is it because you think some people flourish in a relationship that’s up and down like eternal makeup sex ? Does it make you become clearly aware of the problems once you are married? Or is it that divorce is a bigger closure tham just splitting up and now they can really breakup?

  26. Kitten says:

    The drug addiction is really obvious which makes me wonder if he was ok with her using but not ok with her not hiding it well. Because I highly doubt that he doesn’t dabble in drugs a bit himself but the difference is probably has it well under control. I hope she doesn’t continue on a downward slide because it was painful to watch her act out a few years ago.

    • LuvSpaghetti says:

      From what I heard, he only reconciled with her because she stopped using, so I don’t think he was ever okay with it. Supposedly, she was miserable & acting out when they broke up the first time and he was seen with other women. But she straightened up to get him back and it worked. She even looked obviously healthier when they got back together and put out that Malibu song which (I think) was about her finding peace and settling down with her lover or something like that. I haven’t talked to my friends yet to know for sure but…If i had to guess, he probably got upset at her for starting back up recently and walked out, and this stupid ass behavior of hers was in response to him “leaving her”. She’s obviously trying to hurt him back.

      • Totally Old says:

        @LuvSpaghetti, that actually makes the most sense of any scenario I’ve read about them. Whatever, the problems, it’s theirs and I hate it’s not private for them. If she were my daughter, I would be very worried about her health right now. She needs someone very supportive of her right now.

  27. Yes Doubtful says:

    I’m sure Liam is no angel in all of this, but the way she is handling this separation is tacky. Move on Liam, this girl ain’t it.

  28. potatoe says:

    Always felt he was the mature one. It kinda proves my point. Never appreciated them both, but he seems like a chill dude with a backbone while Miley is totally carefree about anyone and anything. I don’t know why she behaves so edgy or stuff but she doesnt look good in her own skin. That’s probably better they’re apart now. Liam deserves better.

  29. Busyann says:

    All of these stories seem fishy….Miley,Liam,Kaitlynn, and Brody….this all seems so fake. But it also seems like Miley is on some type of bender too. Can both things be true?

    Now people is reporting that Liam and Miley are just on a break, not divorcing, and oh she’s recording music too, and Brody already has a new girlfriend, and Spencer and Heidi are talking about the facade of the marriage….it’s bizarre and about as believable as Camilla and Shawn. But the latest pics of Miley do not look good. I am so confused and sad but also a part of me thinks that these people are selling something, and I bet Liam didnt want to have much to do with it so he left.
