Miley Cyrus and Husband Liam Hemsworth Call it Quits
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have called it quits less than a year into their marriage, 10 years after meeting on a movie set.
The two announced their breakup Saturday night after rumors sparked earlier that day when Cyrus posted an Instagram photo in which she wasn’t wearing her wedding ring.
A representative for the singer told The Associated Press on Saturday that the pair decided a break was best while they focus on “themselves and careers,” but will remain “dedicated parents to all of their animals they share.” They requested privacy. USA TODAY has reached out to representatives for Cyrus and Hemsworth for comment.
Cyrus, 26, and Hemsworth, 29, met in 2009 while filming an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ “The Last Song” and announced their engagement in 2012. She began wearing her engagement ring again in early 2016, and the couple married in December 2018 in Tennessee.
Cyrus has been posting photos this weekend while on vacation in Lake Como with Kaitlynn Carter, who has been in a relationship with Brody Jenner. Paparazzi photos obtained by Entertainment Tonight and TMZ show Cyrus and Carter kissing poolside in Italy.
Earlier this summer, Cyrus opened up about her “modern” marriage to Hemsworth and how she doesn’t feel like she fits into a “stereotypical wife role.”
“My relationship is unique. And 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 told Elle. “I mean, do people really think that I’m at home in a (expletive) apron cooking dinner? I’m in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women.”
She continued: “I have a new song, ‘Never Be Me,’ and the chorus says, ‘If you’re looking for faithful, that’ll never be me. If you’re looking for stable, that’ll never be me. If you’re looking for someone that’ll be all that you need, that’s never going to be me.”
