Miley Cyrus has revealed her tears in the video for Wrecking Ball were for her dead dog, not her shattered romance.
Fans felt sure miserable Miley was crying about her love split from fiance Liam Hemsworth in the promo, but she has now set the record straight, insisting she had a pet, not a lover, in her thoughts.
She tells Rolling Stone magazine, "That (crying) was real. My dog just passed away."
Miley's beloved Yorkshire terrier Lila, who she adopted in 2011, died in December (12).
