It’s been almost two weeks since the news broke that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were ending their relationship after a decade.
Since then, details have slowly emerged about what led to the breakdown of their marriage just seven months after they tied the knot in December 2018.
According to someone close to Liam’s camp, he and Miley had been spending time apart for a couple of months, but photos from the Wrecking Ball singer’s Italian vacation with newly single friend Kaitlynn Carter made him realise it was over.
The actor reportedly told a friend he “can’t do this anymore.”
“Even though Miley and Liam were separated for a while before she was photographed making out on the yacht with Kaitlynn, once Liam saw those photos he decided it was time to file for divorce,” the insider told E! News.
“That was it for him, seeing those photos and then all the Soho House stories thereafter.”
The ‘Soho House’ stories being reports that Miley and Kaitlynn were, ahem, “basically having sex” as they partied at the exclusive Hollywood venue.
Hemsworth filed divorce papers in a California court this week, ending any speculation the couple might be able to reconcile.
“He doesn’t want anything bad for Miley at all,” the source said.
“It’s honestly very simple, they fell in love when they were young and they are just different people now.”
I can admit to a lot of things but I refuse to admit that my marriage ended because of cheating,” she continued.
“Liam and I have been together for a decade. I’ve said it before and it remains true, I love Liam and always will.”
I f***ed up and cheated in relationships when I was young.
“But the truth is, once Liam and I reconciled I meant it, and I was committed. There are NO secrets to uncover here. I’ve learned from every experience in my life. I’m not perfect, I don’t want to be, it’s boring. I’ve grown up in front of you, but the bottom line is, I HAVE GROWN UP.
