DITCHED AT THE AL­TAR

Mi­ley’s Worst Night­mare Mi­ley Cyrus fi­nally won Liam Hemsworth back, but their re­la­tion­ship was quickly pushed to the brink

In Touch (USA) - - News flash -

She didn’t waste any time. Just days after Mi­ley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s De­cem­ber rec­on­cil­i­a­tion, the 3.5-carat cush­ion-cut di­a­mond en­gage­ment ring he first gave her in 2012 was firmly back on the pop star’s fin­ger — and all over her In­sta­gram page. “For Mi­ley,” says a friend, “be­ing en­gaged to Liam again was a dream come true.”

Now it’s turn­ing into a night­mare. After weeks of drama with Liam and his fam­ily — the ring came off in mid-march only to reap­pear two weeks later — Mi­ley, 23, is ter­ri­fiede­v­ery­thing will go hor­ri­bly­wrong again and Liam will call off the wed­ding. “Even worse,” says the friend, “Mi­ley fears he will wait un­til the last minute and dump her at the al­tar!”

Mi­ley is pres­sur­ing Liam to walk down the aisle ASAP. “She wants noth­ing more than to get mar­ried. She needs this re­la­tion­ship to work,” says her friend. “She’s ready to settle down and she wants chil­dren with Liam. She’s say­ing she wants to have this beau­ti­ful wed­ding. She’s plan­ning for it to hap­pen as soon as this sum­mer.”

She doesn’t want to give her crit­ics — es­pe­cially Liam’s fam­ily — the chance to come be­tween them again. “Over the New Year’s hol­i­day, when Mi­ley and Liam rec­on­ciled and spent time with his fam­ily in Aus­tralia, they made her feel like she was back in their good graces,” ex­plains a sec­ond pal. But after a few months of the en­gage­ment be­ing back on, Liam’s fam­ily turned on Mi­ley — and al­most con­vinced Liam, 26, to leave her for good. “They started to scru­ti­nize Mi­ley’s ev­ery move. It ab­so­lutely crushed her,” adds the sec­ond pal, who says the Hemsworths are not fans of Mi­ley’s wild an­tics or head­line-mak­ing at­ten­tion grabs. “Liam felt the pres­sure, started to pull away, and their re­la­tion­ship went into this limbo where ev­ery other week they were on a break.”

Now Mi­ley is de­mand­ing that the Aus­tralian hunk tune out his loved ones. “She’s afraid that Liam will leave her be­cause of the mas­sive in­flu­ence his fam­ily has over him. She prays ev­ery day that he isn’t ly­ing to both his fam­ily and to her just to please ev­ery­body,” says the first friend. “So she’s made it clear to him that if this re­la­tion­ship is go­ing to work, they are both go­ing to have to ig­nore what their friends and fam­ily say.”

Mi­ley is des­per­ate for Liam to see things her way. “Him dump­ing her would put her into a very dark place men­tally, emo­tion­ally and phys­i­cally,” says the first friend. “If he leaves her, it will be years be­fore she gets back on her feet. She will fall apart — and it will be ugly. She won’t be able to han­dle it.” ◼

OFF BROKENHEARTED In Septem­ber 2013, just three weeks after her con­tro­ver­sial MTV VMAS per­for­mance with Robin Thicke, she and Liam end their en­gage­ment.

MO­MENT OF TRUTH “Liam’s had to ask him­self: Do I re­ally want to marry Mi­ley?” says a source.
