Well, I guess we should have seen this one coming. Miley Cyrus and fiance Liam Hemsworth have broken up. Page Six is reporting that multiple sources confirmed the split after Liam jetted off to Australia because "he needed to get away from Los Angeles and spend some time with his brother and friends.” Meanwhile, another source said, "Miley and Liam are done; it’s over. She likes to party really hard and can be pretty wild. It became a problem for him.”
Not that surprising. Liam has always seemed the more grounded and mature one of the pair (if slightly himbo-ish). Anyway, this whole breaking up routine isn't exactly new territory for the couple ...
As another source (wow, Page Six is hooked up with Miley's inner circle, eh?!) added:
They have broken up before, and are broken up again now. There was drama because she suspected he had a wandering eye. And she recently tweeted a denial that he cheated. While Miley has insisted they are still together, right now they are very, very much apart.
Ahh, well. Sure, there have been instances in which young Hollywood love has lasted ... Look at Michael J. Fox and his wife Tracy Pollan or Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze, Jr. (Am I dating myself here?) But more often than not, we shouldn't be surprised when celebs who are engaged at the not-at-all ripe or old age of 19 halt their sprint down the aisle.
As cute a couple as they were -- and as hot as he is! -- it seems like Miley's at a point in her life where she could really stand to be single and figure out who she is. (Is she more a single process then shaved Sinead O'Connor or a multi-tonal highlights mohawk Pink kinda gal? Juuust kidding.) She's even trying to make a music career "comeback" by putting out a fourth album that she tweeted will "shut everyone up."
Not sure that's what she should be hoping for, but either way, girl sounds streesssed out! And it all seems to come back to needing to figure out her true identity and path. Without a rocky, prematurely serious relationship in her life, maybe she'll have the time and space to do that.
Are you surprised by this split? Do you think Miley and Liam are better off broken up?
