Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth Split After 8 Months of Marriage

Share on Facebook

After just 8 months of marriage, long-time couple Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus have split. The news was confirmed by Miley’s rep, speaking to the publication, People.

Rumors of a split between Cyrus and Hemsworth started on Saturday after fans noticed something strange in her Instagram posts. Keep scrolling to see the Instagram post and the reason for the couple’s split.

They began dating back in 2009 and married ten years later. They’ve come a long way since they first met.

Miley Cyrus got her first big break in showbiz way back in 2006, having first auditioned for the role when she was just eleven years old. She played alongside her real-life dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, as she oscillated between being a pop star and a regular teenager. Presumably something about this role just spoke to her.

Miley has had three number-one albums on the US Billboard 200, plus another top five albums, all since 2007. She’s also had nine top-ten singles, including Party in the U.S.A., The Climb, Wrecking Ball, and Malibu.

Liam comes from strong Australian stock, as both his older brothers have been involved in acting and they all starred on Home and Away. As they moved across to Hollywood, Liam actually got through to the final auditions for the part of Thor, but was beaten to it by his older brother.

Liam found success in The Hunger Games.

Starring opposite Jennifer Lawrence, Liam played her best friend from home, Gale Hawthorne, throughout The Hunger Games series. Since then he has also starred in The Dressmaker, with Kate Winslet, and Independence Day: Resurgence.

It wasn’t a The Last Song for this couple.

In true Hollywood style, Liam and Miley first met on set back in 2009. They played the unlikely couple who found love in this Nicholas Sparks adaptation. It’s not quite The Notebook, but it did bring us this wonderful, real-life romance.

When they first met, Miley was only 17, and Liam was 20. They had each other to rely on as they both went through the growing pains of adapting to the life and pain of Hollywood.

And then in September 2013, after months of speculation by the media that things may be on the rocks, this dream couple split up. They stayed good friends, but they just needed some time apart at this point.

In the years that they were apart, they both did some growing up. Liam developed as an actor and continued getting some more serious roles. Meanwhile, Miley started standing up more for her beliefs. She spoke out about believing that both gender and sexuality are fluid.

Miley decided that she needed some time away from Malibu, so she moved back to Nashville. In the meantime, Liam moved to Malibu to try to get over Miley. When he bought his house, he was told it was the house where Miley had recorded her first album. Miley’s hit song, Malibu, is about their relationship and love.

In a case of life is better than fiction, it seems like this couple was just meant to be. At the end of 2015 they started hanging out again and ended up getting back together.

Before they broke up in 2013, they had spent nearly a year being engaged together. When they got back together, in 2015, they got back together and remained fiancées. They even kept the same ring.

They were living together, holidaying together, and just generally looked so happy, but so normal. Plus, they are both vegans and regularly share pictures together of themselves with all their pets.

When the terrible California fires devastated the land last year, Liam managed to save all their pets, and they have a lot. They have: 2 dogs, 3 cats, 4 horses and 2 pigs. Luckily he managed to drive them all to safety. Sadly, all that was left of their home was the ‘LOVE‘ sign.

Although their engagement had been going on for years, to the outside world it seemed like Miley and Liam were just happy being regular twenty-somethings dating.

After months, years even, of thinking that maybe they were just another celebrity couple who would never tie the knot, two pictures were posted. It wasn’t easy to see what was going on, especially as there were no pictures.

It sure looked like a wedding picture, but with no caption there was certainly room for doubt. Especially as it was around Christmas time. It’s the one time of year when people could be wearing anything, for any occasion, and it could just be for Christmas.

Out of nowhere, to celebrate Valentine’s day, Miley started posting some photos from their wedding. In true Miley style, she posts a real picture of them just being them.

Miley marches to her own tune and does things for herself, rather than other people. It seems like she and Liam have that in common.

This is one of the few pictures that have been posted of Miley in her wedding dress. Her Vivienne Westwood dress is simple, but elegant. Much like their wedding, which was for close family only.

Most people have a billion wedding photos, and all of them are staged. Often near some trees, or a sunset, or some other improbable setting. But Miley just posted a photo of herself rocking it on the dancefloor.

This picture is beyond sweet, particularly as it resonates for so many of us. With Miley at 1.65m and Liam standing tall at 1.91m, there is nearly a foot difference in their height, but they’re happy to meet in the middle.

A rep for Miley told People: “Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. 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.”

Miley captioned the picture “Mute me if you don’t want SPAMMED” In response to the image, her sister, Brandi, commented, “Boooooooooooooom!” It looks like we’re about to see a lot more of Miley.
