‘Happiest she's ever been': Miley Cyrus has moved on from 'toxic' marriage to ex Liam Hemsworth
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Miley Cyrus is apparently in the “happiest” phase of her life after moving past her “toxic” marriage and bitter divorce from ex Liam Hemsworth. The 30-year-old pop icon, who has had plenty of time to heal, is thriving as she basks in the success of her new album ‘Endless Summer Vacation’.
The 'Flower' hit-maker is “the healthiest and happiest she's been in a long time” a source close to Cyrus told People, adding "Everyone was blaming her for the divorce and calling her this wild child, but that wasn't fair. Their relationship and marriage was toxic, and she was heartbroken." Cyrus and the ‘Hunger Games’ star met in 2009 while filming 'The Last Song' and they entered an on-again, off-again relationship for several years. They finally tied the knot in December 2018 but called it off less than a year later before officially divorcing in February 2020.

'She's not trying to bash Liam'
The source added that Miley is finally ready to "tell her side of the story" after having "had time to process and heal" from the split. "She's not trying to bash Liam, but she feels like she has every right to own the narrative after everyone was picking her apart after the breakup," the insider continued. Miley is currently dating drummer Maxx Morando, 24, who produced two songs on ‘Endless Summer Vacation’. The two musicians have been dating since 2021 after were also seen getting close at Miley's New Year's Eve Party special in Miami, according to Ace Show Biz.
In April 2022, Miley and Maxx seemingly went public with their romance as they were photographed sharing a passionate kiss out in West Hollywood. Reflecting on their relationship, a second source told People that the Drummer is a "cool guy" whose drama-free personality Cyrus finds refreshing. "He has no interest in being a huge celebrity; he's very low-key. Miley loves these qualities," the insider says. "Miley can be herself. They are supportive of each other's careers. Miley is enjoying life and things are great."
Did Miley Cyrus take a dig at Liam Hemsworth in ‘Muddy Feet’?
These claims came after Cyrus released her new song 'Muddy Feet' which fans believe is a dig at his ex-husband. A collaboration with Sia, the ninth track on the 'Endless Summer Vacation' album captures Cyrus singing "And you smell like perfume that I didn’t purchase / Now I know why you’ve been closing the curtains / Get the f**k out of my house". In another verse, she describes gaslighting behaviour, singing, "Back and forth always questioning my questioning / Get the fuck out of my head with that shit” and in another verse accuses her partner of destroying her self-esteem, crooning, “You watered the weeds / And you killed all the roses”. While Cyrus doesn't name names, fans didn't take long to speculate whether the song is about her ex-husband, Liam Hemsworth, according to Elle. Many of 'The Climb' singer's followers on Twitter shared their theories about how she might have been hinting at Hemsworth's unconfirmed cheating in her songs.
