The rumors have been flying around for a while. Now they've been proven true.
After a year of tense will-they-won’t-they action, the news has finally been confirmed – Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus have broken up, People reports. Reps for the two stars have confirmed the split for the website. The pair have been together since 2010, when they met on the set of The Last Song and subsequently began dating. They got engaged in 2012 and with Hemsworth starring in one of the year’s biggest blockbusters, The Hunger Games, and Miley diligently working on her new music and her image overhaul, there was no sign of any trouble in paradise at the time.
Miley and Liam haven't been spotted together since the paranoia premiere earlier this year.
However since then, it appears relationship drama – some of it no doubt fueled by tabloid rumors – has taken over. Earlier this year, People reported that the couple had decided to postpone this wedding. Over the summer, Miley was seen around town without her wedding ring and this minor detail was enough to add fuel to the rumors that the wedding was off. Cyrus later denied the breakup rumors on Twitter and was seen in a number of photos once again sporting the 3.5-carat Neil Lane diamond. All appeared well once again.
The pair have apparently been flying solo for some time now.
But this time, it sounds like the breakup is for good. Perhaps it has something to do with both stars’ constant engagements – with Cyrus hard at work promoting her single Wrecking Ball and the upcoming Bangerz album and Hemsworth doing press rounds about the upcoming Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire, it looks like both of them are moving on quite successfully. Considering this news, Miley’s evocative lyrics in Wrecking Ball take on a whole new meaning.
