Is Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s relationship singing its last song?
Harkening back to their on-again, off-again early years, the engaged stars — she of Hannah Montana fame, he of Hunger Games renown — may no longer be quite so happily engaged.
Up until late February 2013, the rumor mill was all about whether Miley and Liam had secretly tied the knot. In recent weeks, however, the speculation has taken a sharp turn for the negative, pointing to a possible rift in the couple’s relationship.
The trouble-in-paradise gossip began 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. The two haven’t been spotted together since, with Miley hitting parties solo — sans engagement ring — and Liam chilling with friends Down Under.
“Miley is still upset with Liam. She took the ring off to make him mad,” a source spills to People.
The insider adds that Miley claims they haven’t split, but that Liam jetted to Australia “so they could have a break.”
But according to multiple sources for Page Six, their time apart isn’t quite so temporary: “Miley and Liam are done; it's over,” a source says.
It’s also possible that this is all 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.
Miley and Liam met and began dating in June 2009, while co-starring in the romantic drama The Last Song. A couple breakups and makeups later, Liam popped the question on May 31, 2012.
Given how adorable they are, we hope they make it through this rough patch, at least for the sake of their canine brood.
