Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth split seven months after tying the knot as singer is spotted kissing Brody Jenner’s ex Kaitlynn Carter
The first rumors of a split between Cyrus and Hemsworth spread when she shared a photo on Instagram where she was spotted not wearing her wedding ring.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have officially split within just a year of tying the knot, a representative for Cyrus confirmed to People magazine.
“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” the rep told People in a statement, continuing to explain: “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.”
The first rumors of a split between the 26-year-old former Disney actress-turned-musician, Cyrus, and Hemsworth, 29, arrived on August 10 when the 'Wrecking Ball' singer shared a photo on her Instagram. In that, she was spotted not wearing her wedding ring. Clad in a black bustier top, multiple bracelets and necklaces, and sitting on a chair, Cyrus posed without the ring alongside the caption “Mute me if you don’t want SPAMMED." Her elder sister Brandi Cyrus also commented on the photo writing: “Boooooooooooooom!”
The photo is from Cyrus' recent Italy vacation with Brody Jenner's ex Kaitlynn Carter. The vacation is believed to have taken off shortly after reports of Jenner and Carter's split, after a year of marriage, were confirmed. On August 9, Carter also posted photos from the vacation, one of them being of her and Cyrus, accompanied by two other friends. Another one was just Carter and Cyrus, clad in sexy swimsuits. Carter captioned the photo, “rock the boat, don’t rock the boat baby", and her 35-year-old ex, Jenner, commented, “Hot girl summer.”
Ahead of this shocking split, Cyrus had addressed her 'unique' marriage to Hemsworth, telling Elle how she doesn’t 'fit into a stereotypical wife role.' “I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married. But my relationship is unique,” Cyrus told Elle for its August 2019 cover story, mentioning that she chooses to keep details of their love life, private. “I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in a place where people would get it,” she said. “I mean, do people really think that I’m at home in a f—ing apron cooking dinner? I’m in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women.”
Cyrus added: “People become vegetarian for health reasons, but bacon is still f–ing good, and I know that. I made a partner decision. This is the person I feel has my back the most. I definitely don’t fit into a stereotypical wife role. I don’t even like that word.” She and Hemsworth had met in 2009, in the sets of 'The Last Song' before getting into a rocky, on-again, off-again relationship until he popped the question in 2012. The two were engaged briefly, before they broke off their engagement, only to reunite three years later in 2015.
Despite being committed to each other for years, neither Cyrus nor Hemsworth were keen on tying the knot. That was until December 2018 when the two finally got married in a private ceremony at Franklin, Tennessee. The couple also went through the tragic loss of their Malibu home burning down in the California wildfires - something that reportedly brought the couple closer. “The timing for their wedding makes perfect sense. They, like many others, endured a painful loss which deepened their bond,” a friend of Cyrus told People right after the two got married. “They don’t have doubts about their relationship,” a Cyrus source added. “They both wanted to get married. They have both matured a lot, and it seemed like the perfect time for them to get married.”
