In hindsight, perhaps Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s breakup seems inevitable. After all, these two did meet on the set of The Last Song back when they were just teenagers and still at the beginning of their careers. Now that both Miley and Liam have found stratospheric levels of success as adults, it’s got to be hard maintaining a normal dating relationship. That, at least, is the theory being floated over at Ryan Seacrest’s radio show.

Ken Baker of E! News, whom Ryan identified as helping “to break this story,” called in to the show to discuss the latest details of the Miliam breakup.

“What I was told with no questions about it was that Miley at the end of the day did decide to pull the plug,” Ken explained. “They had both been trying to make it work and she just decided she couldn’t do it anymore.”

The reason? “The most immediate concern was they definitely lost trust,” Ken said, citing the couple’s hectic travel schedules that often kept them apart. “At least what I’m told by really good sources close to the situation [is] that sometimes in that space the trust can break.”

In the void, rumors, like those ones that Liam was sexting January Jones, begin to creep in and, Ken said, “things just start to deteriorate from there.”

Earlier in the show, Ryan speculated that perhaps the two parted ways because of Miley’s recent transformation. “[You’ve] got to be really confident with you relationship when your girl is in that ‘Wrecking Ball’ video like that,” he said to which co-host wisely added, “And you have to be really confident to be in a relationship with a Hemsworth.”

Take note, Eiza Gonzalez.
