It’s been more than 4 years since Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth split, and the pop star has finally decided to open up about the exact moment she knew her marriage was over. Miley showed refreshing honesty in her personal essay, which will, it is hoped, put an end to any further speculation about her turbulent romance.
Miley and Liam have lived a love story with many ups and downs
The couple met on the set of The Last Song in 2009, starting their romantic adventure. Their relationship is said to have been on and off but led to them getting engaged for the first time in 2012. However, by 2013, Cyrus and Hemsworth had broken off their engagement, and for the next 3 years, they both dated other people.
In 2016, Miley and Liam resumed their relationship. Shortly after, the actor expressed that the first breakup had been difficult for both of them, but necessary: “At that moment, we were taking different paths and it was what had to happen.” That same year, the couple announced their second engagement, and it seemed like they were finally ready to give themselves to each other.
In 2018, two relevant events marked their lives: they got married and lost their home in Malibu. Miley reflected on both events: “I would say losing the house changed us a lot more than getting married.” She deepened her thoughts by mentioning that tragedies bring people closer, as no one can understand that heartbreak better than both of them.
Then, in 2019, shortly after celebrating their 10th anniversary, Cyrus and Hemsworth announced their decision to separate. Her statement read: “Constantly evolving, changing as a couple and as individuals, they have decided this is best while they both focus on themselves and their careers.” What followed were years of speculation about the exact reason for their breakup, but it was just speculation. Until now.
Cyrus Finally Shared What Led to Her Divorce
Recently, Miley made a series on TikTok called Used to Be Young, where she reflects deeply on her career. In one part of her personal story, Cyrus revealed the exact moment she realized her marriage was over. The exact date and location: Glastonbury, June 2019. The singer was preparing for a performance and said that “the decision had already been made.”
Cyrus elaborated, explaining that losing her home was the trigger that brought them together, but it was actually a connection born of trauma. She felt like she was playing a role until she understood the need to put her own wants and needs first. Miley commented: “There was another moment when the work, the show and the character predominated. I think that is why it is now essential to me that this is not the case, that the human essence prevails.”
