Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth’s peeps are trading accusations of infidelity, drug use


met gala 2019 NY

It basically took 72 hours for a peaceful celebrity split to turn into a gossip bloodbath. Honestly though, I’m not surprised. It felt like Miley Cyrus’s rep only confirmed Miley’s split from Liam Hemsworth as part of a one-two punch alongside the loved-up photos of Miley and Kaitlynn Carter. Miley was desperately trying to get Liam’s attention. And when people were like “damn, so Miley flat-out left her husband for a woman huh,” Miley decided to set the record straight – through unnamed sources – just to let us know that Liam is a BAD GUY. He’s moody! He parties! That’s why she dumped him and ran off with their neighbor. Now, obviously, TMZ has even more dirt:

It started out amicable, but the breakup between Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth is now in nasty territory … with claims of drug use and infidelity. Sources with direct knowledge of the breakup are telling radically different stories. Sources from Miley’s side tell TMZ, she tried valiantly to save the marriage and the dealbreaker was that Liam was drinking a lot and using certain drugs, and she wanted no part of it … especially since she struggled with substance abuse in the past.

Sources from Liam’s side are calling BS, saying the drug and alcohol claims are designed to mask what they say really destroyed their marriage … they claim infidelity on Miley’s part.

As you saw, Miley and Kaitlynn Carter were making out in Italy last Friday … though our Miley sources made it clear … she had broken up with Liam months earlier — we’re told Liam begs to differ. As one source put it, “This is another attempt by Miley to distract from her infidelity and recent outrageous public behavior.”

[From TMZ]

Liam seems like he’s just a pot-smoker and beer-drinker, but hey, what do I know. Maybe he does hard drugs (I doubt it, but I really don’t know). Between the two of them, I would have guessed that Miley is the one with some quiet, nasty habits. And yes, Team Miley is just leaking all of this sh-t because they know Miley looks like an a–hole for flaunting her affair with Kaitlynn.

What else? Sources told Page Six that Miley has been “acting like the ‘old Miley’ again,” and that Liam “wants a normal, settled-down life.” Sources close to Miley also swear up and down that Miley never, ever cheated on Liam and that Miley and Kaitlynn only started up after Miley and Liam were done. I don’t believe that, I really don’t.

    I….don’t think they’re getting back together this time, kids.

    • Spicecake38 says:

      Understatement of the year 😉

    • Arizona says:

      I don’t either, this seems a lot nastier than it has been in the past.

      I don’t think Liam does more than smoke pot and drink. If he does, he’s exceptional at hiding it. I don’t think partying is the issue though (and if it is, she looks worse partying on a yacht in Italy while he’s with his family back home). I also really, really don’t buy that her and Kaitlynn got together after their relationships were over. That’s what everyone says when they get caught with their jump off immediately after a relationship ended.

      I think they had a lot of issues, and the fire bonded them for a period. When that ended, they realized they had the same issues as before. I think Miley loved Liam, but I think she’d have a hard time settling down with anyone, and I think she cheated. Maybe he did too, who knows. All I DO know is that he’s playing the PR game very well, and she’s not at all.

  2. Lucy says:

    Miley has zero class. Liam hasn’t said much of anything and she has her people trying very hard to smear him. Maybe everyone should act like adults and be quiet.

    • Spicecake38 says:

      That would be too normal and classy when clearly Miley seems to relish the drama and the attention.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        I think maybe he gave her an ultimatum (to grow up???) and she said “No” so he walked. It would explain why she is trying so hard to get his attention.

        I know nothing about Liam but my gut feeling tells me he is not the type to be a substance abuser.

      • Athyrmose says:

        @BAYTAMPABAY there were blinds shortly after their first big breakup confirming this. Something to the effect that said he was sick of her Bangerz-era shenanigans, and that she changed her public persona to win him back, but planned to revert after they married.

    • Ronaldinhio says:

      Miley has class. Who are we to decide who does or does not have class. What is class anyway?
      We have no idea who she or Hemsworth truly are, none. They are simply all the media have portrayed to us and for Miley that is a massive dollop of misogyny.
      I’m bored with bashing her for being a young, successful woman who is herself

      • Sierra says:

        Unfortunately we live in a man’s world and women still gets blamed for everything.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        No, we have more than what “the media” portrays. In this age of social media, stars have the ability to directly communicate for themselves. Miley has been quite public with a lot of her behavior.

      • Kimberly says:

        @Ronald

        having class is a well defined attitude, and isn’t a mystery, nor is it associated with a bank account balance.with that said, we all view life differently and some people don’t mind a bit of trash mixed into their class.✌

      • VintageS says:

        If the shoe were on the other foot, and he was smacking on someone right the split I would say the same thing. Her classlessness or cluelessness or whatever has nothing to do with being female. She’s desperate and gross.

    • MariaS says:

      Agreed with the lack of class. Performing with a strap on dildo and blow up doll when most of your fans are young teens who know you from a Disney show? Yeah, that’s gross. My sister and young teenage niece left her concert because they were so disgusted by her onstage antics. My sister is by no means a prude – it simply wasn’t age appropriate for who MC knows her fans to be.

      • Grant says:

        Miley had a #1 hit about partying and popping Molly. If your sister wasn’t expecting on-stage antics commensurate with the same, that’s on her.

  3. A random commenter says:

    Miley, girl, fire your PR person. No one in the world is going to believe Liam is the one who parties too hard when he’s being photographed looking glum with family and you’re photographed partying with your jumpoff on a yacht.

    • Lucy2 says:

      Not only that, but they’re throwing all these accusations out there after all he said was he wishes her the best.

      • Lightpurple says:

        And good health. He wished her good health.

      • A random commenter says:

        IMO the accusations don’t really have anything to do with Liam, it’s all to change public perception. Miley was posting pics with whatsherface on a yacht and got bad, bad press. Everyone was accusing her of cheating or of being cruel at the very least. Then her “sources” let it be known that she was the one who wanted to get into therapy and it was mean ol’ liam who kept that from happening. When that didn’t change her bad press, she came out accusing him of cheating and hard drugs. It’s like she’s hurling whatever accusations she can to hurt him and make herself look better, but it isn’t working. Liam comes out of this smelling like roses and Miley like turds.

      • Jaded says:

        @Lightpurple: that comment wishing her “good health” struck me as a veiled hint that she’s gone down the rabbit hole of narcissistic “look at MEEEEE” behaviour and possibly drug abuse again.

      • Puravidacostarica says:

        Jaded: Absolutely spot on. Miley has had problems with narcissism and drug abuse for years. It wasn’t going away just by tying the knot.

    • Mia4s says:

      Yeah it’s a crazy amateur PR move. Even if what they are saying about him is true? Doesn’t matter because of how this was handled. He may not be even close to as big a star, but he has got some PR game I’ll give him that. Seems to be a Hemsworth trait.

    • Kebbie says:

      Seriously. Who thought this was a good move? I said this yesterday, but if she wants to ruin his reputation she should just say he cheated because no one is going to look at the two of them and believe he is the one with the drug problem.

      • holly hobby says:

        Yeah if you look at the pictures here he looks healthier than her. She’s the one who looks strung out in some photos.

  4. LadyT says:

    There’s a picture from yesterday of the two ladies in a car. Miley’s left arm is suspiciously marked and bruised.

    • amilou says:

      Huh? I’m looking at the photo now. All I see are shadows and light and her terrible tattoos. Keep reaching.

  5. DD says:

    No matter what the circumstances no one wants to see their ex enjoying someone else’s company so soon after announcing a split. Miley and Kaitlyn could have resisted posting all the pics.

  6. Pixie says:

    This is so messed up. I really don’t see the point of publicly smearing someone you were in a long term relationship with, with claims of drug use and infidelity in an attempt to ruin their careers, just because you broke up. I understand bad break ups happen, but I would never dream of jeopardizing someone’s career and reputation, the way all these celebrities apparently just can’t wait to do. Clearly, Hollywood is where decency goes to die.

    • lucy2 says:

      It’s not just celebrities, a LOT of people get vengeful when they break up and try to hurt the other. We just know about the celebrity ones because they’re famous.

      • Pixie says:

        I suppose that’s true. I guess it seems worse because of the huge platforms on which they are often so happy to do it. I get being vengeful, but telling millions of people, including all his future prospective employers, your ex husband has a drug problem seems a little extreme. Especially, if there is zero evidence to support it.

    What an entertaining mess… Lol

    They both are shitty people idaf

    • Ennie says:

      I try to give her a break due to her momager and her childhood, but her family is really trashy, girl seems a nice person in some aspects (activism, well meaning), but so selfish and outrageous in others. She really does not have a lot of good examples, and she loves to hang out with that reality crowd who are even trashier.

      • holly hobby says:

        Looking at her fully tattooed brother is enough of an example. Brenda Song dodged a bullet with that one.

  9. Gaby says:

    I have a few Aussie friends and I think in Australian culture is pretty common to go out with friends regularly and drink beer and pot is not a big deal. I think is just his normal behavior and we have never seen him stumbling drunk or doing really hard drugs. Plus, he looks the healthier of the two.
    Is he a cheater? I don’t know. But he has the PR game down, because she is the one looking like a real mess here.

    • Lucy says:

      She IS a mess.

    • crogirl says:

      He’s a man, and with Miley being Miley he hardly needs PR.

      • Dani says:

        Jennifer Aniston pays the the same game which is why everyone still loves her and regards her as a nice, down to earth person. Man or woman – people just need to learn when to shhhh.

      • Grant says:

        What does Jen Aniston have to do with any of this?! Angelina, is that you??

    • Lina says:

      Maybe not recently, but there are pictures of him getting into bar fights, with Chris there too. Maybe he doesn’t shoot heroin, but he seems like an asshole. And so does Miley.

      • Kitten says:

        +1
        I can’t help but feel like the people pointing to the fact that they’ve never seen pics of him nodding off or stumbling-drunk as evidence that he’s not an addict don’t have much experience with addiction. I’m not saying he’s addicted, just saying that lack of photos are not somehow proof that he’s not. Addicts can be really good at hiding it. Likewise, he could just be an occasional recreational user. You might not find photos of him all messed up if that’s the case.

        I personally believe that he was doing drugs with Miley-to what extent, I don’t know. Whether he has a problem or she has a problem I don’t know. I DO know that she’s been looking very thin and not very healthy lately.

      • Ashley G says:

        That’s what makes it hard for me to completely side with him; he was with and married Miley for a reason. They must have had a lot of common traits if they spent 10 years together. It’s hard for me to believe he is that different from her when they were together for so long.

      • Christina says:

        Bottom line: he wouldn’t have kept pursuing her for marriage if he wasn’t okay with her lifestyle. If he wasn’t doing hard drugs, he was accepting, but there are things you get used to in that business, and coke is everywhere. He couldn’t live with her without being accepting or even doing it. I think that his use is recreational and closeted. Hers is open and barely hidden. Their PR styles are different, but they had a private life that none of us were privy to except when Miley’s open lifestyle gives clues, like the whopper of making out with BJ’s ex on a boat.

      • The Recluse says:

        Yeah, that was a LONG time ago. Pre-Thor.

      • Notbirdsofafeather says:

        My partner is into different types of recreational activities than I am. Not saying that’s the case here, but I don’t do pot in any form, ever, and he does. He also goes out and stays out late with friends at bars frequently and I’m out maybe once a year. Totally different lifestyle preferences that may not make for a lasting relationship (for us or Chris/Miley) but we have other things in common to keep us together so far.

        Anyway, if you saw him out and assumed I was into the same things because we’ve been together ten plus years you’d be wrong.

    • kosmos says:

      I think Liam got really lucky here–he can find someone soooo much better now and he’s free of little Miley, who has a lot more growing up to do before she marries anyone!!!! She totally turned me off years ago with her stage behavior, so she’s NEVER been right in my eyes. Don’t know what Liam is really like, and why he is so attracted to her? I wish him the best and am actually HAPPY for him that he can move on. She’s going to stay in the baby stage for now and continue to carry on with attention-grabbing behavior as she always has.

  10. loop says:

    Miley complaining about someone else’s partying and drug use? Pot, meet kettle.

  11. Coz' says:

    “Outrageous public beahviour”??? Please. This is so transparent.
    I have no dogs in this fight and I am not a fan of Miley but I find the slut shaming really exasperating. And it was the same way when they last broke up.

    • Lucy says:

      Slut shaming? I think people are disgusted with how she and her team are trying to smear Liam. And if you separate from someone, immediately posting photos of you making out with someone else is so wrong imho

      • Coz' says:

        Or maybe her people are trying to prevent what happened last time they broke up?
        I feel so tired of the double take on feminism here depending on wether we are talking about a woman “we” love or “we” don’t.

    • Lullu says:

      @Coz’ Thank you. This feels so old, I thought we moved beyond this type of mysogynist narrative. Prefer Laineys coverage of this break up.

      • Purplehazeforever says:

        Both can be truth like Coz & Otaku Fairy are pointing out. Is Miley a mess? Yes. Is she being slut shamed? Yes. Is she reacting badly to the split? Yes. But Liam also knows who he married & he knew she wanted space. He’s not surprised. Please. No one on this site, including Kaiser, knows what happened in their marriage or how Liam is just because how Liam presents himself! It seemed like Miley had to change & compromise for Liam to get him back. Always an issue. This is who she is…if he can’t accept it…then yes, they need to part ways. I’m not necessarily talking about infidelity, I have a feeling there’s something bigger going on here. Like he can’t accept something? Her “acting out”, “outrageous” behavior…what is that supposed to mean? Her sexuality? Her posing with another woman? Her comments? What exactly?

      • Arizona says:

        I think what they mean by her acting out with outrageous behavior is the take that she basically posed for those pap photos of her and Kaitlynn to get Liam’s attention and hurt him.

        My issue isn’t that it was another woman or her sexuality or anything like that. I think it’s gross to not even have announced your split yet and get photographed making out with another person while partying on a yacht. Especially since this person was part of a couple friend with her and Liam. It seems tacky.

        To me personally, it doesn’t have anything to do with him being male and her being female. It just has to do with the public behavior.

      • Purplehazeforever says:

        I was referring to sources from Liam’s camp..I genuinely believe he’s not who he appears to be. She had to change to get him back. She had to tone it down to become “Malibu.” Remember that? Why is this hard for everyone to see? He doesn’t accept Miley for who she is. And while I agree she’s reacting badly to the separation, he’s hurt her deeply this time. He’s blindsided by the pics? No he’s not. Give me a break. I can agree that he doesn’t want this played out in the public & he’s upset, too but he’s known who he’s married to.

    • Jules says:

      This is not slut shaming. This is public acting out, one step away from Britney’s head shaving and umbrella escapades. Do not turn this into a feminist argument.

      • Otaku fairy... says:

        When people’s response to an immodest woman (considered less deserving of a nice boy than the girl who dresses and acts like a lady) moving on to someone else right away is drastically different from what their response was when the wholesome-looking hot guy did the same exact thing previously, that’s misogyny. When a woman seeing her ex in paparazzi shots making out with another girl gets a shoulder shrug and praise for getting rid of her and sending a clear message to her, but that same man seeing his ‘unworthy’ female ex behave the same way gets called cruelty and abuse, that’s misogyny and plays into already toxic messages about what men (and others) are entitled to from women. Incels eat this shit up. In the manosphere guys are still using the Ariana/ Mac Miller situation for their who!e, “Women are responsible for their exes emotions and owe them control over their bodies for a certain amount of time’ hate agenda.

    • crogirl says:

      @COZ
      This 100%

    • A random commenter says:

      Oh please. Miley never took her marriage seriously. Look at the wedding pics she shared or the interviews where she all but said as much. She failed to take the ending of her marriage seriously too. I mean…partying on a yacht with your new girlfriend AS your separation is announced?! Kind people don’t do that. Decent people do not smear their ex while also rubbing their new relationship into their ex’s face. It’s not slut shaming. It’s calling out shitty behavior.

      • Otaku fairy... says:

        It is slut-shaming when people didn’t react as harshly to Liam doing the same thing with Eiza Gonzales. And sorry, but I don’t think exes of either gender owe it to whoever they were either dumped by or dumped to wait any amount of time before making out with someone else. But there’s a pattern of people thinking women owe their exes something when it comes to what they do with their bodies.
        What’s wrong on her part though is that she’s throwing Liam under the bus as a reaction to the slut-shaming, when it’s not his fault. That is shitty. A mature woman would have handled it differently.

      • Kitten says:

        +1 Otaku Fairy.

      • A random commenter says:

        It’s easy for you to reduce this to slut shaming because Miley is the one acting a fool, but I would bet good money most of us would say the exact same thing if it were Liam. It’s trashy, tacky, unkind, immature, and selfish. It has nothing to do with “immodest women” or whatever you wanna claim. And like it or not, he’s basically semi-famous for being the less-hot Hemsworth so his antics and bad behavior are never going to get the kind of notice Miley’s does. People just don’t know who Thor’s brother is.

      • otaku fairy... says:

        Nope. It’s possessive and unfair to impose that standard of morality on anyone, male or female. But yeah, it is about misogyny and literally about female modesty. Thank u, next.

      • LadyT says:

        Liam didn’t take, caption and post the Eiza picture did he?
        Miley did post her own. There IS a difference. That’s what I find tacky and immature. Who does who, what, where, and when is not my issue at all. Couldn’t care less.
        I honestly get your point and appreciate it, but I don’t consider this slut-shaming.

    • ByTheSea says:

      But it IS outrageous public behavior. They literally just announced their separation. If he had done it, we’d have ripped him a new one, too. Doesn’t make it right, just because it’s a woman doing it. That’s not feminism.

      • Otaku fairy... says:

        Liam did do it a few years ago, and not only did most commenters not rip him apart for it- they were gleeful about it and said that’s what unattractive clingy Miley gets for showing skin and shaking her ass. Nobody claimed that Liam was abusing Miley by moving on so quickly with those staged photos.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Liam did not do the same thing a few years ago. They weren’t married a few years ago.

        I don’t think he’s a saint, but Miley’s make out photoshoot was exceptional in how obvious of an intentional dig it was. She did a shitty thing in a very public way. It’s hard to argue against calling those actions as we see them, as they were intended to be received.

        The Liam/Eliza thing wasn’t on my radar (don’t know who she is), so I can’t give the comparison as much weight as others give it, especially considering they weren’t married then.

    • Otaku fairy... says:

      @Coz: Truth. The complicit ones and those with patterns of enabling slut-shaming when women they want taught a lesson are involved will try to shut it down, but you’re right. To be clear, Miley is a mess and the way she’s handling the reaction to this break up is wrong, AND she’s being slut-shamed. Both can be true. One doesn’t have to be a perfect victim, and sexism is still sexism even when someone is an asshole about it.

      • OriginalLala says:

        I was admire everything you post Otaky Fairy, it always makes me look deeper at my internalized misogyny and I thank you for it.

      • Coz' says:

        @Otaku fairy… Thank you! That is what I meant only you articulated it way better.
        I am tired of seeing so called feminist only defend the women they think deserve to be defended from sexism.

      • Kitten says:

        Exactly.

      • PleaseAndThankYou says:

        @Otaku Fairy

        Once again, I have always generally agreed with your comments and find them consistently insightful and important.

        In this specific comment, I agree with you completely. On every single thing you just wrote in that post.

        But re: Liam’s previous actions versus Miley’s current actions, as you discussed before, they were/are completely different, due to the nature of their relationship at that time and now, their ages then and now, and Liam not choosing to post photos of himself with Eiza, but instead, getting caught by photographers with her. Are the differences in public reactions to each fueled by something more… misogynistic, as well? Yes. Of course.

        And while I believe Miley has every right to do as she pleases, as I responded in to you the other post, her actions and words (as they are seen and interpreted by the general public and judged) of late have been slightly problematic *simply* on the level of reinforcing stupid stereotypes/biases about bisexual and pansexual people and monogamy, as we do get lumped together (bi/pan). But is it up to her to present as some sort of perfect role model? Hell no!

        I know that it only concerns me because those same stupid biases have kept me from being completely out to my family/in-laws. And I worry for other young people in similar situations, but I recognize that as my sh*t. And our society’s sh*t. Not hers.

        Not to continue to project all over the place, but I just hope she has a good support system through this all. I don’t know how one human can survive their life being so public. She’s so incredibly talented (do people really think that she’s ugly?!?) and has so much more to give, creatively. This society is so cruel to women and to the LGBTQ+ community.

        I hope this makes sense at all? I respect you very much.

      • Otaku fairy... says:

        Thank you for all the support. I’m waiting to see the election results though and if Trump wins, I will not be coming back.

    • Nova says:

      +1 to everything Coz and Otaku said. The hack with internalised misogyny is that a lot of you don’t even realize you were socialized into being excessively critical/judgmental of other women.

  12. Adrien says:

    OK Miley and Liam’s peeps, just keep it to yourselves. No one is interested in knowing the reasons for their split. When they announced it everyone was like, “K”🙅‍♀️and moved on.

  13. Stacy Dresden says:

    They are going to regret smearing each other publicly. They should have stayed quiet out of respect for their past relationship.

  14. Deanne says:

    Who are her PR people? Sure you don’t know what people behave like in private, but trying to push the narrative that he’s the drug user and partier is really stupid. Making out with someone else in public, before your split is even announced is classless and in keeping with Miley’s typical behaviour. Liam has been mostly silent, but I’m sure he’s going to start talking if she and her team don’t stop what they’re doing. Someone from her team claimed that she was taking the high road. What a joke.

    • one of the Marys says:

      I really, really hope he stays quiet, that’s the only way to handle this mess I think

  15. Justjj says:

    I think Miley needs to go to state college, work at a chain restaurant for a couple years, and get some high-quality, trauma informed, counseling. I don’t know anything about Liam. He’s super hot. That’s all.

  16. Eliza says:

    They were a couple who should have never got married. They were together so long their feelings couldn’t let them quit until they imploded. She wants to be iconic and scandalous to get there, he wants to be taken seriously in his industry. Both wanted to live publically (and maybe privately) differently from the other. Of course they were both miserable, they only had a love of dogs and weed in common.

  17. Osito says:

    I think this is a terrible move for two serious reasons and a silly reason. The serious reasons first: 1) If Hemsworth and/or Cyrus were abusing drugs and/or alcohol and/or were coping poorly with mental health challenges, public shaming and humiliation are actively harmful when addressing those issues. 2) If Hemsworth and/or Cyrus are toxic and/or abusive partners (which wouldn’t be surprising given #1), continuing public explorations of why this happened only deepens entanglement in a relationship that needs to be vacated by one or both parties as quickly as possible. The public shaming can definitely be a part of that, and if there is an innocent party in all of this, they need to disengage quickly and let the lawyers handle everything else. Be the Angelina you wish to see in this world.

    Silly reason: This is terrible PR and makes them both look immature, petty, and tacky. Liam handled it better first, but both could save face by shutting the f- up.

    • Lucy says:

      Perhaps they are immature, petty and tacky though I haven’t read anything from Lam except he wishes her well.

      • Osito says:

        From above: “Sources from Liam’s side are calling BS, saying the drug and alcohol claims are designed to mask what they say really destroyed their marriage … they claim infidelity on Miley’s part.”

        “Sources” need to stay out of it, especially if the serious issues I explored are closer to the truth in this situation. Sexual shaming is definitely a form of abuse (and unverified allegations of infidelity is definitely sexual shaming), and if he was in fact the wronged party, continued engagement with a toxic former partner is dysfunctional and will delay his ability to move forward. Like I said, LH’s PR played it right with the brief Insta press release. Now he needs to let the lawyers handle it. Same goes for MC.

      • Arizona says:

        I dunno, sources could be any number of shitty friends looking to make some money by speaking to the press, right? It doesn’t mean he’s okaying it. I also think that’s mostly only come up because shots were fired from Miley’s camp first.

      • Osito says:

        @Arizona — Could be, but seems fairly unlikely at this point. He’s best served by not responding. And she’s served best by not responding. My original opinion hasn’t changed: if there are serious issues they should be dealt with privately. If this is tit-for-tat attention seeking, they need to let it go. I don’t see what’s wrong with that.

  18. bears says:

    It doesn’t really matter if you’ve physically “hooked up” with someone before your marriage was over – what matters is that you were knowingly spending time with someone that you wanted to hook up with, someone you’d rather be with than your spouse. Keeping someone on your back burner is shady and does amount to cheating – after all, you’re not really invested in your marriage/making things better if you’ve already got someone else lined up and are just waiting to pounce. So, either way, sketch. And regardless of how it worked out, it’s still pretty low class to immediately be flaunting a new relationship before the dust has even settled.

    • Eliza says:

      Yup. I know someone who swears he didn’t cheat because he only talked every day to his backup after meeting her… she told him every day she would never treat him like his wife did (the irony being, she treats him much worse). He lies a lot so I’m not sure I believe the only talking, but even if true, emotional affair and plotting the next relationship without the wife knowing is still cheating on the vow of marriage.

  19. Ennie says:

    Her angle backfired big time. She seemingly has yes people as employees (pr included) and does and says what she wants, not seeing the obvious outcome.
    I think she’s used to call the shots and have a family of enablers. They might have both part in the breakup, of course, but what she has said about their own marriage ( pics and twerking videos not included) really make her look like she was trying to please a certain crowd, like if she felt that she needed to make known how hardcore she still was. As far as I know, there have been some rockers who live a hard lifestyle, being totally volatile and unstable, but there are also talented rock artists who leave a more peaceful life, not needing to project a certain image. In her instagram she reflects how she wants to be seen, and went the whole way to say how not “traditional” she was. She never said that he wanted traditional, I wonder why some people are saying that he wanted a stay at home mom of his children.
    To me, she handled it badly from the beginning and now it is a pr mess of her own doing, instead of a clean breakup with friendship possibilities.

    • Lightpurple says:

      They’re saying that because that’s the story she pushed after their first big breakup when she was out twerking around the world and posing for pictures in which she was fondling herself. She continues to push that story. His mother wasn’t a “stay at home mom” and he has never said anything in public about wanting that.

    • ct says:

      This! I’ve always felt that Miley’s surrounded by enablers. Her family, management, fans and commentators.

  20. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Miley has a song on her new album called D.R.E.A.M which stands for “drugs rue everything around me.” She literally is singing about her drug use. She has ANOTHER song on the album called Most. It’s about Liam. And she sings about how solid a guy he is and how despite her crazy he loves her. Now he’s a bad guy?? Yeah..,I’m calling BS.
    Miley simply doesn’t like that the public sees how truly messy she is and is now trying to make it that Liam was a bad dude. If he was SUCH a bad dude Miley then wtf did you marry him??

  21. Not My Fight says:

    When I first saw the pics of Miley making out on the yacht, I said to myself, “girl get some class”! But, then I remembered when I was 25 and I dumped my long-time boyfriend because he wouldn’t stop cheating. I made out with a guy in public in front of his friends within days because I knew it would get back to him and hurt him. Looking back on it now, it just made myself look like the bad guy while he came out looking squeaky clean because no one ever believed he was the reason we broke up. If what her people is true, she will learn in a few years this wasn’t the way to go.

  22. DS9 says:

    Doesn’t anyone know shutting up is free? Good God.

    I don’t understand Miley’s play here. She needs to own the best view of where she is right now and leave Liam out if it.

    Life your best life, say you loved the dude but you weren’t ready to settle down, and keep on keeping on making out with some chick on a boat somewhere. And then if anyone slut shames you, you can call them a misogynist and move on.

    But you can’t realistically claim you left your husband because he’s a drug using, unfaithful party boy while you’re looking a little strung out on a boat licking on a new partner and twerking on a couch. It doesn’t wash.

    Pick a narrative that works.

    And for God’s sake, is he a bar fighting cokehead or did he want to knock you up and tie you to the kitchen? You don’t get both.

  23. Eleonor says:

    In the last months Miley was desperate for attention. Her album, correct me if I’m wrong, didn’t have too much success, and this made her even more desperate.
    I don’t think Liam is a saint: he has married her, after years together, and I think it’s possible he is less clean or healthy than his image is.
    For sure he has a better pr team.
    And in one photo she looks like Madonna during the “Hard Candy” era!

  24. FHMom says:

    Didn’t she give an interview where she basically said she could never be faithful? I assumed they had an open marriage or at least she wanted people to,think she was cool like that. She’s been very disrespectful of her marriage in interviews, so nobody is going to buy her story. Her PR people are trying to tone down her image, but we are going to see wild, nasty tongue Miley again as she tries to reinvent herself yet again.

    • Otaku fairy... says:

      That was about a song she had, and she talked about how female artists singing about cheating is more controversial for people and taken more personally than when male artists take on those things.

      • Dani says:

        She said it in her Vogue (or whatever other publication) that she’s not a ‘regular’ wife and that their marriage isn’t traditional and she emphasized that she’s not straight. Words mean things. If I said stuff like that about my marriage, even if it wasn’t outright like oh yeah F this, my husband would also be hurt.

      • Jaded says:

        Oh for heaven’s sake stop trying to turn a sow’s ear into a silk purse. This isn’t a feminist vs. misogynist issue, she’s turning this into another attention-grabbing, selfish and self-obsessed Miley show. She should just do what Liam is doing and keep it private. For someone to turn their marriage break-down into a public shaming match is unconscionable and indefensible.

      • Otaku fairy... says:

        The response to her shaming Liam is not the problematic part- that criticism is completely valid. It’s a lot of the response (here and elsewhere) to her moving on to someone else right away that’s been misogynistic and ott possessive.
        As for it being more shocking/controversial when female artists do songs about cheating than when male artists do it, that part has been true for a while. It was part of the reason why the theme of ‘Unfaithful ‘ was so noteworthy, and it’s why some of the people who took ‘Break up with your Girlfriend ‘ personally don’ t have a problem with Sam Smith or Shawn Mendez having songs with the same theme.

  25. Lisa says:

    Miley is a mess and needs to leave bad enough alone.

  26. QueenMeow says:

    She doesn’t need to take his feelings into consideration to live her life. I know it seems harsh, and I know from personal experience that being on Liam’s end of that is ROUGH, but it’s true nonetheless. People are assuming Liam is some poor sap victim here because he seems like a quite, laid back, domesticated guy, but no one actually knows him. He could be a serious drug user (so could she for that matter), he could be manipulative, or he could be just plain insensitive. We don’t know. Miley is being who she has shown before to be. She tried to be different for him, or he tried to make her different or whatever, but it’s clear they weren’t suitable for one another. So they’re apart, and she’s living her life to the fullest and he’s licking his wounds. He could be out doing what she’s doing if he wanted to. Eventually he’ll be fine, and she’ll move on to the next thing she’s into. It’s gonna be ok, guys. She’s not a heathen, and he’s not a victim. They are just 2 young people going through a dramatic breakup/divorce.

  27. MariaS says:

    I continue to find her utterly revolting. Crass, immature, attention-seeking, and ignorant. I don’t know if he does drugs or cheated but, he’s better off without her.

  28. MoreSalt says:

    I can’t even imagine how exhausting this life is, planning an Instagram day on the boat with your new fling for your strategic social media drops informing people of your relationship ups and downs. I just cry and eat ice cream and listen to sad music. Makes me very glad I don’t have to worry about documenting my private life for public consumption.

  29. EK says:

    Yeah, I definitely believe big, bad Liam brought scary hardcore drugs into her happy hippie home and Miley had to stop twerking long enough to run away. Absolutely.

  30. tw says:

    The only thing I got from this post is that Kaitlyn Carter’s cheekbone injections are not subtle. The filler is jutting out the side of her face. That’s all.

  31. sassafras says:

    Gah. It is NOT misogyny to note that Miley is being immature! Or unfaithful!

    If the roles were reversed and Liam was the one who had run off and was POSTING photos with him and a side chick, I think there would absolutely be judgment about that.

    It’s the POSTING and PUBLIC NATURE of this fling that is immature. If Miley had left Liam, and went on a private holiday with girlfriends, no one would be “slut-shaming” her. But the desperate begging for attention and slapping an ex in the face with this is not what a responsible adult does and it’s not misogyny to call that out.

    (And PLEASE, do not get into whatever happened with Liam and January Jones. Miley-stans cannot have it both ways – pointing the finger at him for supposedly cheating (five years ago?) and then defending her for all the current nonsense. Cheating is either wrong or it isn’t.)

  32. Chaine says:

    All I can say is, I don’t see him ever engaging in any publicity seeking antics, while she seems like she would be an incredibly exhausting and draining person with whom to be in a relationship. He’s probably better off without her.

  33. Cee says:

    This is what I meant the other day when I posted that only those breaking up are the ones who KNOW what really happened. Some people feel the need to play victim with their acquaintances and friends and, in turn, people only get ONE SIDE of the story.

    Whatever happened, it’s over. They should move on with their respective lifestyles.

  34. Keke says:

    So we all know Liam cheated on her in the past with January Jones and others, and that the older Hemsworth brother is a giant cheater (sources from London have commented about it on this site )

    And during that breakup she got all the crap and should “change for him”.

    Seems like the same thing is happening here. The yacht photos seem like “screw you photos” to me. To get back at him for cheating. Possibly. Obviously I don’t know this for sure. It’s possible there was infidelity and drug use on both sides.

    Liam has a better PR strategy to stay quiet and look sad. And he probably is sad. But those photos look staged to me.

    I can believe that Miley’s into the drugs, just by now she’s looking these days. Don’t know about him, but can we stop just blaming her??

    Yeah, it was immature on her part no matter what happened to post those photos, but people to rash things when they are hurting

  35. paranormalgirl says:

    Wouldn’t it be nice if they could just end their marriage, not trash each other, and move on?

  36. Mel says:

    Everyone on both sides needs to behave like adults and shut up. I’m sorry, but I don’t care who you are, you don’t announce your separation/impending divorce with pics of you sucking face with the next one in line. It’s immature and attention seeking and if he was the one who did that, he’d get crucified for it. I’m sure there is enough blame to go around when it comes to what went wrong with them, but Miley is wrong for not only flaunting her side piece but she’s making moves to throw him under the bus. Just shut up.

  37. Emily says:

    I noticed a lot of comments defending Miley’s lack of clothing. Where were you when Adam Levine was universally panned for taking his shirt off? JK. I never want to see that again.

  38. Jb says:

    Called it! But I guess we all kinda did…the drama is never ending!! Honestly hope Liam finds someone soon so we can get back to back Instagram pics and see who can out do each other!! Ok ok not really but this is far from over…if I was Liam I’d stay away from social media, focus on myself, my career and yes enjoy meeting other ppl (romantically or just sex ) when I was ready. Miley should do the same but who are we kidding she LOVES this right now

  39. Brittney says:

    I suspect they both do LOTS of coke… and I’m almost as positive that it played a role in their reunion, decision to marry, aaaand breakup.

    Not because of any specific info, but because that seems to be the case for every 20- or 30-something who parties in my city… and my city isn’t even LA.

  40. SURFCHICK says:

    They are so young. All this media nonsense is just that, nonsense. Only they know what really happened between them and it’s only their business.

  41. naomipaige99 says:

    Who cares? They are done! We all pretty much saw this coming.
    Time to move on….. NEXT!!!

  42. Kathryn says:

    Liam has a history of cheating (January Jones, Eiza Gonzalez, anyone???) the fact that Miley is getting made out to look like the bad person her is really showing a lot of our internalized bias

    • LadyT says:

      Have you read the comments. Cheating is not the issue here. Miley is taking pictures with her lover, captioning and posting them herself, just as her break-up hits the news. People think that is tacky. Did Liam do that?

  43. Hateonit. says:

    I feel like he cheated on her. And that is why he isn’t saying anything to the press except to wish her well because of guilt. They’re too different also. She’s changed not for the better. I really liked her when she was all supportive of animals and doing yoga or whatever, dressed normally and exercised with him and they had a happy little family of them and a bunch of rescue dogs. I also think this split has been inevitable. From her comments about her marriage and once she got that haircut. If you notice once she changes her hair and style it’s because she’s going through it and she’s going to be crazy again. She loved all the attention she got in that bangerz stage and it was obvious she did drugs all the time. She pretended to be normal to get him back which worked and they got married. Then she made all the comments about their marriage, got p***y tattooed on her ankle, and got a terrible haircut. It’s been over for a while.

  44. Patty says:

    Miley’s team is playing this all wrong. By mostly staying silent and just wishing Miley health and happiness, Liam is winning.

  45. JRenee says:

    Messy, messy, messy

  46. A says:

    Oh Miley. I think that Disney did a number on her. She’s never been happy with the squeaky clean, apple pie, girl next door image that they foisted on her, and that’s been obvious from the minute she was slightly free of the reins over at Disney. Her whole career progression since has just been one stunt after another to explain to us just how much of a rebel she is, really!!!! But if you have to say it, you’re not really a rebel, are you?

  47. Rogue says:

    Did anyone see footage of Liam tickling Miley at the Avengers red carpet and her being super irate he was interrupting her posing or another red carpet where she started twerking on him and he got really annoyed? Both moments were really revealing in retrospect. Seems they may want different things

    • entine says:

      I really think you exaggerate, I took a look , and in the in the avengers one , they seemed both kind of playful, she was posing up a storm and he kind of interrupted tickling her, and went out of frame two seconds later to let her pose by herself, in the twerking red carpet, he just moved a bitaway from the twerking and the journalist asking intimate questions, but not super irate, really, more like shy or like a private man. .

  48. Alison Stephens says:

    Well it’s kind of sad imo that here is another split. Don’t mind either of them, think she’s a good singer/performer, and he a half decent good looking actor. I always felt Miley had her oddities and issues because of her Disney early years, and do wonder if anyone ,gets out of the ‘Disney machine’ and Hollywood anywhere near normal. So I hoped that these 2 would break the norm and they’d prove Hollywood couples can last it out. Who knows what goes on behind closed doors in private . She looked wired at Glastonbury and I wondered if she was on something actually, which is strange as he is being accused of using drugs . Let’s face it, it’s part and parcel of showbiz ,drugs and scandal. So nothing surprises me. I do however, find in my cynical bones, how convenient it is that she’s releasing a break up type song right now , at the same time he, has a new film out . So all this publicity will probably have it’s plus points in someway

  49. kirstin says:

    Miley have use drugs since she was very young. She did stop 6 months or so – then she and Liam get serious, but after that she was back on the drugs, the pills etc (she has always been open about it beside, i think more or less her whole family is in to it too. And all the halfnaked pics, twerking, tutching herself on instagram all the time, & the songs lately. She has no idea who she is – she pretend she is just Miley – but she pretend she knows it all, but have no clue at all. The new girlfriend has been with Miley at least 6-7 weeks. pics on instagram when she was in Europe to peform. Miley is an adult now, & it is time to start acting like one. The way her team are trying to milk this, to pretend she is the good nice girl & liam is thebad one– i dont belive it at all. They are trying to hard. Liam did cancel his press junket etc for his new film Killerman who is out in the end of this month, so he seems very hurt. When he has got some time to think, to murns his marriage i dont think she will ever getting him back. So when after he has heal, & he find a new woman, he can fall in love with (maybe start a family ) it will be to late for Miley to get him back again. That train has gone. She need to grow up, & not have to be in a headline all the time to feel good about herself. The way she is handling the break up in the press/media is just embarrassed and it shows how immature she still is. The last time it ended, she was also bad at him. And where are her so-called parents, they never set boundaries no matter how she dumbs out to the whole world. shamefull
