Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s Relationship: The Breakup
Much like amazing Seattle summers, young celebrity relationships never seem to last. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were no exception to this rule (and we're still binge-eating ice cream every night to cope).
Miley started the month of May by posing topless for Maxim, while Liam caused "riots" at Cannes thanks to his adoring female fans. Miley capped off the month by tweeting selfies of herself in a wedding dress, while at the same time the couple was reported to have split again. Despite that, Liam was spotted just days after the rumored split looking happy while working out in West Hollywood, Calif., and Miley was seen flashing her engagement ring for the umpteenth time by the end of May. June was a magical month for Liam Hemsworth fans, as the star ! ... but finally joined the world of Twitter he didn't follow Miley first thing, which raised a few eyebrows. To make matters worse for the couple, Miley was seen leaving a club with Justin Bieber, though she very quickly put the myth to rest that the two were dating. Maybe she was just trying to party her way into an escape from the reality that her parents were divorcing? The two rounded off the month with a super-adorbs movie date, and it sounded like Miley might finally have had a positive change of heart concerning her long-standing engagement to Liam... even if they were still allegedly fighting over Miley's sexy image. The duo started off July by posing with a fan in Canada, where Liam was filming Cut Bank at the time. And while Miley's sister said they weren't yet planning Miley's wedding, we still had hope for these two kids to make it, after all. We also got closure on the Twitter issue, when Liam admitted to "sucking" at Twitter. August found Miley and Liam making a coupled red carpet appearance for the first time in ages, but Miley also slipped and called Liam her "boyfriend" around the same time, which set off alarms for many critics about the state of their engagement. Unfortunately, it seems like that red carpet appearance might be their last, as the release of Miley's Bangerz single "Wrecking Ball" had fans and critics alike speculating that it was a breakup song about Liam. Miley's eccentric, raunchy, heavily-panned performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards didn't help her relationship at all, and Liam was reportedly "mortified" by the performance — so much so that it very well might have been the catalyst for a breakup for the couple, as multiple sources reported the split was impending, and it was finally confirmed September 16.
