Things aren’t looking good for Hollywood’s favorite sweethearts Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth. It was just last month that the singer told the UK's The Sun on Sunday that she doesn’t “envision marriage” because she has “too much living to do” and is “just riding this out.” And while that news came as a shock to fans, Life & Style can exclusively reveal that Liam’s family was so taken aback by her words that they’re urging him to break up with his fiancée.
An insider reveals that the Hemsworth crew is “encouraging him to end things with Miley because [they feel] she is just using him and doesn’t see a future with him.” Miley’s public statement is odd considering The Voice coach, 24, has been photographed wearing her engagement ring in recent weeks and, as Life & Style has reported, she pushed Liam to wear a promise ring on his ring finger to show how committed he is.
Even amid his family’s urging, however, Liam is remaining true to his lady. “While he was blindsided by Miley’s comments,” the insider explains, “he is still completely in love with her.”
It was back in July that Life & Style exclusively revealed Miley and Liam had called off their wedding. And while this time around the tension seems to stem from the “Wrecking Ball” songstress, previously, it had to do with the Hunger Games actor’s hesitations. “Bottom line, Liam got cold feet,” one source said at the time.
“Miley was really having fun imagining her wedding,” an insider added, “but she knows it’s important to put a hold on everything. She loves Liam and wants it to last forever when they take that step. But it can’t be now.”
The up and down nature of their relationship is nothing new to fans. The duo met when they both starred in The Last Song in 2009. Three years later, they made it official with a ring and got engaged. The couple then called off their engagement in 2013 — shortly after Miley twerked onstage with Robin Thicke at the VMAs. Then, at the end of 2015, they were spotted together again.
Miley has even opened up about breaking up and making up with her beau. “People that break up and get back together — I think that’s awesome because you know it’s true, but also you get time to be yourself, you get time to grow up,” she said. “If you’re growing up attached to another person, you never really get solid as your own being.”
