We also have you covered if you’re after the latest on Miley Cyrus herself.
How Miley and Liam Met
Miley first met hunky Australian actor Liam, then a Hollywood newbie, while filming their romantic drama The Last Song in Georgia in June 2009. At the time, she was 16 and he was 19 — and as The Notebook brought Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams together for a few good years, The Last Song (also based on a Nicholas Sparks novel) sparked an off-screen romance between its male and female leads.
In a March 2010 interview with Teen Vogue, Miley recalled being impressed first and foremost by Liam’s height, as well as his chivalrous nature. “He's really tall. I thought, Either I'm going to have to be in heels or standing on something for this entire movie!” she said. “He definitely showed chivalry: I remember him opening the door for the director, and I was like, Wow.”
The On-Again, Off-Again Early Years
After dating for nearly a year, Miley and Liam broke up briefly in August 2010. They were back on a month later, only to split again in early November. Miley was photographed getting hot-’n’-heavy with Victorious actor Avan Jogia at her 18th birthday party the following month, and in February 2011, she was spotted cozying up to her So Undercover co-star Josh Bowman.
But those boys were mere distractions, because Miley and Liam rekindled their young romance by April 2011.
Miley and Liam’s Engagement
With their relationship still going strong over a year later, Liam popped the question on May 31, 2012, in the backyard of their Malibu home — right after Miley performed a cover of “Lilac Wine.”
He presented Miley with a 3.5-carat Neil Lane sparkler featuring a 19th-century diamond as the centerpiece stone.
Miley confirmed their engagement on June 6, telling People, “I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam.”
Clearing up speculation that they’d already tied the knot, Miley gushed to Marie Claire in September 2012, “I don’t really care about the wedding or the piece of paper as much as I do the promise we’ve made to each other. We want to have a long engagement.”
Are Miley and Liam Still Engaged?
In late February 2013, the rumor mill began churning in the opposite direction, with reports flying that the two had called off their wedding.
It started with a story about Miley being “out of control” when Liam is away, and then got darker with a report about Liam making out with Mad Men star January Jones.
Miley was spotted partying two nights in a row sans engagement ring, while Liam jetted to Australia, supposedly “so that they could have a break.”
The End of Their Engagement
Those reports may have been one giant false alarm: After suggesting on Twitter that she hadn’t been wearing her ring because she was getting it fixed, Miley posted a photo of herself in an equine onesie — and the formerly absent bling — on March 19. Unfortunately, by September 2013, it was official: the two lovebirds had broken off their engagement.
We're not sure exactly when the couple started the big break, but the gossip is already red-hot on who they're going to date next. Some posit that Miley's dating producer Mike WiLL Made It, and others swear they saw Liam out and about with singer Eiza Gonzalez.
