Liam Hemsworth was ‘heartbroken & blindsided’ by the photos of Miley & Kaitlynn

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth Split After Less Than a Year of Marriage **FILE PHOTOS**

Just after Miley Cyrus announced her split from Liam Hemsworth while she was on vacation with her new girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter, someone tweeted at me and said that they hoped Liam didn’t slam Miley post-split. Apparently, there’s a theory amongst Miley-stans that during their last big breakup – basically, the Bangerz era – Liam waged a lowkey campaign to paint Miley as a promiscuous wild child who wouldn’t settle down. I mean… if you want to believe that Liam contributed to that narrative, sure, I’ll go along with that. But I wish the Miley-stans would also realize that Miley LOVES the “wild child” label and she desperately wants that brand. She still wants it. That’s why she’s making this most recent split as messy as possible, because she can’t help herself. That being said, of course Liam is going to play the wronged husband, the good guy who tried to love a difficult wild child. That’s HIS brand.

While sources close to Miley Cyrus have been busy painting her as the wronged party in her breakup with Liam Hemsworth, pals of the “Hunger Games” actor tell Page Six that he was “devastated” by the infamous pictures of his soon-to-be ex-wife making out with another woman.

“He was heartbroken and blindsided by those photos,” said a pal, referring to pictures of Cyrus smooching reality star Kaitlynn Carter at a hotel pool on Lake Como, Italy, that appeared online Sunday — just a day after the couple announced the end of their marriage.

“They are still married and they really did love each other. She’s really immature and always has been,” a source told Page Six.

People close to Hemsworth told us Cyrus sources have been working overtime to paint Hemsworth as the problem. On Wednesday, People magazine published a scathing story claiming that Cyrus had tried to curb his partying and that he would “lash out at her.”

But sources close to Hemsworth told us he’s hurt by the coverage. “Liam is one of the kindest, gentlest people out there. Him being wild or drunk or deadbeat is absolutely ridiculous.” They added that the booze claims are “100% a distraction” from her actions.

I’ve said this before and I’ll keep saying it until proven otherwise: Liam just seems like a guy who likes to smoke some weed, have a few beers, grill some meat and watch a movie. He doesn’t seem like he would “lash out” at Miley or whatever. I could see the biggest problem being, theoretically, his laziness. Like, he doesn’t show up emotionally, he’s content to just drink a beer and get high and not do the work of being in a marriage. That’s just my theory, again. But yes, I believe that Liam was probably hurt by Miley’s affair with Kaitlynn and the photos from Italy this past weekend. That’s why Miley posed for those photos – to get under Liam’s skin, because she’s that immature.

    For real???? Blindsided and didn’t see it coming, dude, are you for real???

    • Eleonor says:

      They have been together for years, he knew her, I don’t believe this for a second.

      • Renee says:

        I was with my ex-husband for years and was blindsided when I found out he was having an affair. It’s more than possible.

    • FHMom says:

      But it didn’t have to be so public. Miley and Kaitlynn just might be having fun to get back at their exes. It’s mean and immature.

    • MariaS says:

      The headline says blindsided by the photos, not the breakup.

    • Dani says:

      I don’t think anyone is ever prepared to be cheated on, regardless of how long they have been with someone or whatever issues they may have had.

      • Seraphina says:

        Young, clueless and in love is a very bad combo. This is Miley we are talking about. And yes I can call them both clueless because they do have enough worldly experience to know this was not a good combo.

  2. Ronaldinhio says:

    I reckon they were split and she kissed her mate to help her get back at Brody – who seems an utter low life
    I think Hemsworth knows this and is jumping on a poor steady good guy free publicity

  3. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Liam and Miley are a perfect example of young love that both people have outgrown. They just both need to cut their losses for good. I do think that Liam wants Miley to be someone she’s not. And I think Miley wants Liam’s attention and for him to be her fallback person when she’s craving safety. Both of those things are toxic.
    Also – Miley CLEARLY doesn’t know who she is and what she wants and she’s desperately grasping for some form of identity. And she is under the mistaken impression that that comes from outside forces. People like that are train wrecks and cause nothing but devastation to the people in relationships with them.

    • Lisa says:

      All of this.

    • Taryn says:

      I think you nailed it with these two, I was rooting for them but it seems like Liam has always been consistent in what he wants in a partner and Miley is consistent in the fact that she constantly craves attention.

    • Ennie says:

      I agree, I do suspect she has a group of hangers on or fans, who knows? who are more “hardcore” and who she is trying to appeal to.
      I don’t think she knows what makes her happy, she seems lost. I hope she goes back to healthier ways.

    • Christin says:

      Agree. While I think they actually outgrew each other the last time they split, apparently they wanted one more try. Time to accept reality and move on.

    • Christina says:

      All of this. They need to resist the pull of what they had when they were first together. Intense emotions aren’t the same as love.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Totally agree with this. Liam probably at one point was into the HW party life but he seems to have grown up and out of it but Miley hasn’t. Having met many narcissists over the years Miley behaviour screams of a) attention (from Liam and the media), b) projection (she’s project her own behaviour/issues/mistakes onto others) and c) petty revenge: she’s rubbing the new relationship in his face as its classic ‘you made me do this as you weren’t giving me attention’ behaviour – narcissists do this when they have been called out on their behaviour. It its true he didn’t want to do relationship counselling that means he is OVER the relationship for good and knows that its never going to work and this her paying him back for that. She strikes me as someone who always needs a fall back relationship.

      Once she has whatever it is out of her system or gets bored with Caitlynn she’ll run back to him like she always does but I think this time that bridge has been truly burned and she doesn’t realise this yet. It will be interesting to see how she reacts when he moves on with someone else.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        To add: am not saying he’s an angel but he is coming off as the more mature one here. Miley has always been her own worst enemy.

        I still think she’s trying to figure out who she is but doing in such a public was is something she might come to regret. I remember her saying she was embarrassed by some of the things she did during the Bangerz part of her life, I think it may have been those Terry Richardson photo’s.

  4. BaronSamedi says:

    I don’t buy that he ever had to lift a finger to paint Miley as a ‘wild child’. She did that allllll on her own. She worked so hard at cultivating that image it would honestly be a disservice to her hard work to give anyone credit for that.

    • Otaku fairy... says:

      Me neither.

    • Kebbie says:

      Yeah, I’m surprised that’s even being claimed by anyone. The only way he assisted in that is by appearing to be very stable while she appears to be the opposite. The dichotomy between the two makes her instability look worse.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Me neither and yeah I totally agree she wants to be seen as a wild child. She has spent years cultivating that image – remember ‘Can’t Be Tamed’ and ‘Wrecking Ball’. Its sad as she has talent as a singer/songwriter and actress – I LOVE her cover of Jolene.

      • holly hobby says:

        Her singing is much better than Snakey Swifts. It is a shame. She pissed her natural talent away. People care about the art. The tabloid drama doesn’t sell music.

  5. FHMom says:

    I agree with everything you’ve said. Anybody would be hurt by an ex publically moving on so quickly. Miley is her own worst enemy, and I don’t think she cares.

    • Otaku fairy... says:

      He did the same thing with Eiza, so I don’t feel sorry for either of them on that situation.

      • noyouplum says:

        @Otaku fairy That was years ago and they weren’t married then. It’s very different after you’ve taken vows. I’m not saying what he did was ok but it’s not the same circumstances so shouldn’t be judged the same, IMO.

      • Meg says:

        Exactly! I remember a previous breakup where he was photographed kissing and kinda grabbing a models butt the very next day after the breakup announcement. But now he’s heartbroken over her doing what looks nearly identical to what he did? He’s trying to play the victim here

      • Kebbie says:

        He was 23, that’s something you do when you’re 23. I’m not trying to excuse it because it was still cold, but 27 and married is definitely colder.

      • otaku fairy... says:

        They were engaged though. Trust me, it’s patriarchy. The mic-cutting that’s going on is some of that too .

      • Kebbie says:

        @Otaku She blanketed her Instagram in photos and videos of her trip with the girl. It’s not the same.

      • Goldie says:

        Not really on anyone’s side here but I looked at Miley’s instagram and didn’t see any pics of her and Katelyn. I’m pretty sure Katelyn was the one who posted the pics of them on the yacht.
        Or maybe Miley posted instastories. I didn’t check that.

      • Kebbie says:

        @Goldie No you’re right, it’s Kaitlynn’s Instagram and stories that are blanketed with them together. My bad. I’m guessing Miley okay’d her posting that stuff, but maybe not.

  6. Tonya says:

    Miley looks so strung out. Comparing the top photo to the old photo at the end of the post, is shocking! She looks like she has been awake for DAYS in that top photo.

    Drugs make people act terrible. She also looks like she hardly eats. Girl get it together and stop hurting people!

  7. Tiffany says:

    You know what, I was expecting 2019 to be the year of mess from Miranda Lambert and Whatshisteeth, not these two.

    Miley and Liam, think about what you are doing.

  8. Ennie says:

    1. He didn’t need to do that at all.
    2. She wouldn’t have gotten back with him if she thought it was true and was hurt by it.

  9. I’m not convinced he was blindsided by anything, my guess is he knows exactly why they split.
    Miley’s actions have been poorly thought out and bad PR but it reads like a woman very deeply hurt to me. She came out swinging and burned the marriage and any thought of reconciliation completely to the ground.

    He knows why.

    • Tonya says:

      Unless she’s a total jerk. I dumped a narcissist once because I was tired of his mistreatment. He had a new supply within days and was public on social media with her within the next weekend (my ex and I were together for 5 years). I was heartbroken he replaced me within hours, literally and he was doing it to hurt me. Narc’s can’t stand it when someone decides to not tolerate and enable their stupidity. So, they move on quickly to a rebound who will and then they don’t have face the consequences of their bad behavior (destroying their previous relationship).

      She is obviously a coke head and then some. What if he got sick of her and found her to be a total embarrassment since she is so immature still? I think she is acting out because he had enough of her drama. Don’t forget the weird things she said about their marriage, I would have been insulted if I were Liam. He seems to always take her back and maybe this is the first time he really stood up and put his foot down. Maybe she can’t believe it. She seems to be acting out like a child.

      Miley really needs to figure herself out before she gets in a relationship with ANYONE.

      • Which is exactly what HE did last time around, the difference is that he was praised for it. Maybe he’s the narc and she is no longer tolerating the low key negging? Maybe he can’t handle that her career continues while his has stalled?

        Yea her response has been childish and heavy handed… but it doesn’t seem to be a consideration that maybe she’s hurt and completely over it.

    • Catstan says:

      I agree with you op! Miley has been writing songs about Liam’s temper and emotional unavailability for years.

      • Kebbie says:

        About his temper? I didn’t know that, which songs?

      • Catstan says:

        Kebbie: “Week Without You”, “Rooting for my Baby”, “Drive”, “My Darlin”, “I Get so Scared”. Off her album Younger Now which came out after they got back together, this is one of the lyrics about Liam:

        “You used to make me smile but now you don’t do that anymore
        It feels like I’m always just crying and sleeping alone
        But when I think of you gone, I know
        I know that I gave you my heart
        But you stomped it to the ground
        I don’t want to wonder what it’s like
        To not have you around”

        - Sounds like someone in an emotionally abusive relationship, I am sure she is not perfect but I don’t think Liam is the chill laid back “Nice guy” he wants people to think he is. I think he is really attractive but I don’t think that gives him a pass if what she has been saying for years is true.

      • Arizona says:

        My Darlin, I Get So Scared, and Drive are break up songs, but they’re not about his temper. Rooting For My Baby is really the only closest one that mentions temper – Week Without You mentions a bad mood bringing her down but again, is really more of a breakup song.

        Plus, let’s not forget that she had other relationships/people in her life between their breakups, so Week Without You doesn’t necessarily mean it’s about Liam. The other ones I would suggest are about him, for sure.

        And if we’re examining her song lyrics – what about The Most (which talks about how Liam loves her the most and she keeps hurting him) and D.R.E.A.M. which is literally Drugs Rule Everything Around Me and about her partying all night. Because those are both brand new songs. There are a lot of assumptions that could be made here.

      • Kebbie says:

        Rooting for my Baby isn’t a great look for Liam if it’s about him. I don’t know that it’s about actual abuse, but it sounds like she’s walking on egg shells around him, so that’s a red flag at the very least. The others point more to infidelity than anger, IMO. But then she’s got songs where she basically idealizes him, says he saved her and says he’s a giver and she’s a taker.

        They need to just stay broken up. They’re obviously not good for each other.

      • Purplehazeforever says:

        @ Arizona…she’s dated women..besides Liam. I mean you’d have to match up their timeline to the songs but now I’m curious.

    • Arizona says:

      My husband’s ex wife cheated on him for months before she finally left one day, and then showed up to my stepson’s soccer game days later with the new guy, specifically to rub it in my husband’s face. She is also an alcoholic. My husband is a lot like what I suspect Liam is like – smokes some pot, drinks some beers, grills, and isn’t big into going out. She complained that he was “too boring.” And since then, she has claimed that it was his fault and yada yada yada, rather than her repeatedly cheating on him with numerous people throughout their marriage. So…yeah, I dunno. That dynamic seems familiar to this situation.

      It’s certainly possible that Liam is awful in a lot of ways and is just really good at PR, but this isn’t a great look for Miley.

    • Cee says:

      I agree with you. I recently left an emotionally abusive relationship. He finally exploded in such a way I felt unsafe around him. In order for me to leave him I had to destroy the relationship and set it on fire so that HE wouldn’t ever want to approach me again and show me this put upon persona that gaslighted me for so long. Be that a narcissist, a sociopath or a SOB… sometimes you need to implode in order to get away.

      • Kebbie says:

        I thought the same thing…until she started dropping quotes to People that she’s not filing for divorce because they could get back together. She doesn’t know what she wants. I’m no longer convinced that her behavior is logical or should be judged and analyzed as such.

  10. tw says:

    “Liam is going to play the wronged husband, the good guy who tried to love a difficult wild child. That’s HIS brand.”

    Well, he doesn’t have to play that angle too hard. He didn’t exactly hack into her IG and post those photos a day after their split was announced. She did that all on her own. AND, if it was Liam who posted a photo of himself with someone a new a day after the split was announced, I think our reaction would be more extreme, no? He would be dragged for being a dog and an insensitive jerk. His reputation would not recover. But somehow Miley largely gets a pass.

    • Hikaru says:

      Lol, this. She is the one out here giving interviews talking about how insulted she is by the thought of being a wife (because she is too special and modern and open minded and queer to be just a wife!) and how she would never prepare food (in an apron! in the dreaded kitchen!) or spend time with her kids at home because that’s what basic boring straight women with no life or a career do (as well as actual gay people but I guess we’re not edgy enough for her, lol).
      She openly talks about how she isn’t attracted to her husband like she is to other people and how she’s only there because she decided to. And to add insult to injury makes a point to emphasize how she’s still looking around and checking others out.

      She has been nothing but disparaging to both her marriage and her husband all this time and is now shocked people don’t believe her claims that she was the adult responsible one who wanted to go to therapy and “did everything to try save the marriage”.

    • Totally Old says:

      @ TW, I agree 100%.

    • Otaku fairy... says:

      Imagine the mocking, eye-rolls, and probable outrage on both sides that would be triggered if one of the other female celebrities hated largely for their immodesty as women cried ‘abuse’ because their ex made out with somebody else right away. She would be Dear Muslimah’d into the next decade, branded a manipulative diva, and possibly worse. Somewhat rightfully too.
      No, Liam’s reputation/career was not ruined when he pulled the same stunt in 2013 and in my opinion, it shouldn’t be ruined. In general, the possessive and patriarchal responses to break-ups and rebounds of people whose bodies we don’t own or whom we don’t even know is a part of the culture that needs to die. It’s not healthy.

      • PleaseAndThankYou says:

        @Otaku Fairy

        I typically agree with your posts, but here I have to say I don’t believe it is nearly that complicated. I don’t believe the response to Miley’s actions comes from a patriarchal need to control women. It’s because she’s put her cheating/jump-off on blast, publicly. She is getting the attention she wants.

        You cannot compare Liam hooking up with Eiza after a break-up years ago in 2013 (your actions at 23 will and should vary widely in maturity to your actions at 29), and being photographed with her then to what Miley is doing right now – they are married now, they were not just dating – they are both years older, and Miley is posting photos of herself with Kaitlynn hooking up non-stop on social media.

        It’s also frustrating, as a bisexual woman married to a man, to hear her reinforcing stereotypes of bisexual/pansexual individuals that have always made it hard for me to be out to everyone I love. Because those biases are alive and well. Implying bi/pansexual people cannot be monogamous and do not wish to be; that we are continuously interested by anyone else we find attractive, rather than only our own partners. I want to applaud her sex positivity, but in this case, I cannot. She also seems like she’s struggling and it’s painful to watch.

  11. Catstan says:

    Miley has at least 6 songs spread out over three albums over the span of her relationship with Liam where she sings about his temper and lashing out. That is not consistent with the theory that this is a rumor she is just trying to spread right now. I believe he does have a temper and she wanted him to work on that but he refused.

    • Arizona says:

      She also literally just released a song about partying all night called Drugs Rule Everything Around Me, so the “he’s a partier and she tried to curb it” theory seems off.

  12. Osito says:

    Is Liam Jennifer Aniston now? This is textbook “Uncool Triangle,” and it reads to me as pretty manipulative. Cyrus is a mess (by general outward appearance standards/things she says, not because she makes out on boats with girlfriends) but this makes me think that Liam is not unmessy.

  13. Xo says:

    Oh, I see. S#@t’s messy.

    Generally, in high profile splits, I think it’s a mistake to try to paint yourself as the injured party/cast blame, even if it’s warranted. The other side will just retaliate & things can spiral fast.

    Easy to say, I know.

  14. DenG says:

    To me, Liam appears to have the same expression in each photo I’ve seen of him. Not quite smiling, self-satisfied, vaguely bored, comfortably numb–I don’t know.

  15. Cee says:

    Some people often appear to be very sweet, tolerant, understanding and “meek”… until things do not go the way they want them to go, AND THEN you see their true colours. If Miley says Liam can lash out, then I believe her. I dated a very chill, meek guy and he turned out to be the opposite. This duality would often leave me off center and so confused it took me a while to break free.

  16. Jensies says:

    My read on this is that their relationship was pretty open, and that there was a swinging situation with the Jenners. And maybe feelings developed between Miley and Kaitlynn, maybe Liam cheated and she got hurt, and it all blew up this way.

  17. Heha says:

    ..he will find better suited women so will she…what is the constant need to talk… Let it be over in mature way and work on being it over….and have less talk to prove which one of them is better….
    Imo miley probs has BPD people with that is a lot unstable…he typical a fool smart bit of narcc he only can able work on certain type of women dobt understand his types and their attraction to unstable types ….:)
    And Angelina should be the last person for relationship advise…

  18. Dbee says:

    Brad Pitt and him must be sharing the same PR

    • Kebbie says:

      Except everybody’s assumptions about Miley are part of a meticulously cultivated image she created and encourages. The drugs, the infidelity, the craziness is how she has described her life and personality in her music.

      Brad Pitt leans into misconceptions and an unfair demonization of Angelina. They don’t compare.

  19. Caty Page says:

    She allows herself to be messy, but I agree with Otaku Fairy that patriarchy tends to paint “messy” women with an incredibly harsh brush. She’s always been fairly honest about what a sh!tshow she is, so I believe what she says about Gale/The Other Hemsworth. I’ve also learned to believe women when they say men have a temper.

  20. ZIG says:

    Maybe being a “wild child” isn’t a label, maybe it is who she is. She tried to conform and settle down and it was a mistake, she shouldn’t have done it and hurt people in the process.

    There are those of us who don’t want mundane, settled down lives, and it isn’t a label or an affectation just because it isn’t what YOU want.

    • Tonya says:

      Yeah I think she might be a wild child for real and maybe she realized she is not interested in a domestic life. I’ve read many comments from celebitchies (myself included) that got a sudden desire for independence around her age, especially if they had been in long term relationships most of their adult life. Maybe she loved him and really gave it one last shot and geniunely wanted to get married at some point and now has realized it was a mistake. It really could be any reason for the break up and I respect not wanting to be together or married anymore.

      I do have a problem with being cruel post break up and acting like trash with your new hook up to get back at your ex. Especially if her and Liam just grew apart and he didn’t cheat. Even if he did cheat, she still looks like trash behaving this way. I have been cheated on and I didn’t go make a fool out of myself and jump in bed with someone immediately and put it on social media out of misguided revenge – I won’t sink to that level because I have self respect. She needs to find her self respect.

      She will regret this whole thing with Brody’s wife because it really makes her look like an a hole. Take the high road Miley! You will never regret it!

  21. JanetFerber says:

    Boo hoo. Didn’t he cheat on her with January Jones while they were in a relationship? My prediction is he will collect big-time with this break-up. Maybe even to the tune of 97 million dollars (what Guy “I would never take money from my ex-wife” Ritchie took from Madonna). She’s worth a helluva lot more than he is and I can really see him getting big, big money. We’ll see.
