Do Mom and Dad know best?

Miley Cyrus has reportedly split with Liam Hemsworth, and word has it that her parents, Billy Ray and Tish, desperately want the two to patch things up, according to Hollywood Life.

“Miley’s parents do not want to see this split happen — they’re really worried about Miley," reveals a source. "They hate the idea of Miley being single, especially now that she’s going through such a wild stage." Perhaps Miley can't be tamed after all.

"They know Liam’s a good influence on her — he’s very stable, and unlike some guys she’s been with, they know he’s not using her for money or fame," the source continues.

Apparently, Liam isn't perfect, but Miley's parents think his positive attributes could rub off on Miley.

“Liam’s no angel — he likes to drink and have fun — but mostly he’s very focused on his career," the insider reveals. "He’s extremely disciplined, and they think he’s a good influence on Miley." 

"Without him around to keep her on track, who knows how wild she could get — it’s a huge worry for them, and if she’s single they know it will only get worse,” adds the source.

Another surprising reason why Miley's folks want the couple to reconcile? Her dad apparently wasn't thrilled about them shacking up together because of his Christian faith, and this has created issues between Miley's dad and mom.

“When Miley moved in with Liam before getting married, it was a huge deal," says the source. "It caused a lot of tension between Billy Ray and Tish because he felt like she was encouraging Miley to go against their faith." 

"Billy Ray got over the fact that they were living in sin when they got engaged — that was a big relief for him," the source points out. "If the wedding doesn’t happen, he’s going to take it very hard. They have their own issues in their marriage, so the last thing they need is another fight over Miley.” Yikes.

At any rate, it's nice to know we're not the only ones pulling for Miley and Liam to work out their reported issues!
