Liam Hemsworth: Marriage to Miley Cyrus Was Hell!
CHEATING, DRUGS, BROKEN PROMISES… SOURCES CLOSE TO A HEARTBROKEN LIAM HEMSWORTH REVEAL HOW MILEY CYRUS DID HIM DIRTY.
The humiliated Aussie actor is heartbroken since his wife left him — for another woman. Plus, all the details about the singer’s scandalous antics.
THREE days after the shocking news broke that Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus were calling it quits, the Aussie actor took to Instagram to share an emotional message with fans. “Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated,” he wrote alongside a solemn photo of a sunset, adding, “I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward.”
The post was undeniably heartfelt — but it doesn’t paint the full picture of what he’s been going through during the highprofile split. “Behind the scenes, Liam is livid with Miley,” reveals an insider. “He feels she’s humiliated and betrayed him.” The source says the couple’s eight-month marriage was destroyed by lies, cheating and hard partying. “Liam is telling people close to him that Miley made his life hell,” adds the source. The duo fell in love in 2009 on the set of The Last Song and embarked on a roller-coaster romance marked by breakups and make-ups before secretly saying “I do” in December 2018. Liam, 29, hoped that marriage would calm 26-year-old Miley’s wild ways,
says the source, “but once they made it official, things went downhill fast.”
Liam and Miley had drastically different ideas about what married life would look like. For Liam, it meant settling down and starting a family. And while Miley had promised they could try for a baby when they became husband and wife, she had a change of heart after they wed. “Liam was devastated,” says the insider. “He accused her of being a liar.” The “Wrecking Ball” singer then rubbed salt in the wound by telling Elle magazine she didn’t want children. “Instead of keeping such a sensitive topic between the two of them, she told the world,” the source notes. “Liam didn’t want her discussing their private life with the media, but she just couldn’t help herself.”
Miley prioritized her career over her marriage, another tipster observes. “She made a comment about how Liam probably wants her to get fat and stay home and not work.” Known for her edgy outfits and envelope-pushing antics (who could forget her twerking at the 2013 VMAs!), Miley reportedly worried that her marriage to Liam was ruining her image. “She thought Liam was making her boring,” says the insider. “She was more concerned about her career than about Liam.”
And she wasn’t willing to compromise. “Miley has this unapologetic attitude – she wants to live her life on her terms,” says another insider. And the former child star is used to getting what she wants. “She’s spoiled from being famous her entire life,” says the source. Liam hated her attention-seeking tricks — especially her half-naked Instagram posts. “Plus,” says another source, “when they went out, Miley would ignore Liam and flirt nonstop with both men and women, leaving him red-faced with anger.” SECRETS AND LIES Friends of Liam say Miley — who identifies as “pansexual” — was unfaithful multiple times. “She cheated on him more than once before their 2013 split,” says an insider. (See box, below, for more on their relationship through the years.) Trust was a major issue for the actor. “It’s no secret Miley’s hooked up with many men and women in the past,” says the source. When Liam was out of town shooting, he worried constantly about what Miley was up to. “His thoughts would spiral about whether she was up to her old tricks,” says the insider. “He was convinced she was stepping out on him.” The same day they announced their split, photos surfaced of Miley kissing Brody Jenner’s ex, Kaitlynn Carter, while on vacation in Italy. (See box, opposite page, for more on their tangled web.) Miley’s partying ways were also a huge source of contention. Since the breakup, both sides have accused the other of overdoing it with drugs and alcohol. “Liam and his guy friends in Malibu go surfing during the day and have house parties every night where they do tons of drugs,” says one insider. Adds another: “Liam will enjoy a few beers, and there have definitely been times he’s drunk to numb the pain of his failing relationship.
But he’s not some alcoholic.”
Another source says “social butterfly” Miley is the one who’s up all night. “She’d go out with friends until the early hours of the morning, then pass out stoned next to a sleeping Liam,” says the insider. “He felt like he was married to an immature teenager.”
A FROWNING FAMILY
Liam’s family had begged him not to take the plunge with Miley. “They never liked her,” says a source. Liam has always been close to his parents and brothers Luke and Chris, both of whom are married with kids. “They don’t think Miley has the same morals as Liam,” says the insider. They also think Miley’s famous parents, Billy Ray and Tish, are “trashy and crazy,” says a source, “and just encourage Miley to do whatever she wants.” BITTER END
Before finally throwing in the towel, Miley and Liam tried couples counseling. “It was a last resort,” says an insider, “but by that point, nothing could save the marriage.” Their problems were insurmountable, and neither was willing to bend far enough to meet the other. “They’re two very different people who can’t change who they are,” says the source. “That’s the real reason she hooked up with Kaitlynn.” Liam is now paying the price. “He accepts he’s not perfect,” says an insider, “but feels like Miley showed a different side of herself once they got married — a really selfish side.” But he was in it for the long haul. “Liam didn’t take their marriage casually; it was a real commitment for him,” says the source. “He thought he and Miley would be together forever. He’s heartbroken.”
