liam hemsworth miley cyrusWith everyone endlessly yabbering about Miley Cyrus's icky performance at the VMAs, we've been wondering how Liam Hemsworth feels about this latest incarnation and, err, "display" from his fiancee. Now, a source has supposedly spilled all the details to RadarOnline ...

A "pal" claims, "Liam really does care about Miley, but her racy new look and sort of ghetto attitude isn't exactly what he signed up for." Um, not sure what "ghetto attitude" is supposed to mean, but oookay. The insider continues, "Her VMA performance absolutely mortified him, and he couldn’t be more embarrassed. He doesn’t really see anything sexy about what she did on stage." Ouch!

As if that wasn't bad enough ...

The source asserts that Liam being a "serious actor with a growing career" has his "entire team ... urging him to part ways with her because she’s nothing but negative for his reputation and career. He doesn’t want to babysit her anymore. He has to move on.”

While, let's face it, this could be complete fiction, I wouldn't be surprised if there was even a grain of truth to it. Who would be shocked to hear that he was legitimately embarrassed by that? One of the biggest takeaways from that whole debacle was that his fiancee is trying waaaay too hard to convince us she's not that innocent anymore, and it's always a bit cringe-worthy to watch your significant other bend over backwards to prove themselves in an unsavory way

What's more, he probably is very conscious of how being her fiance makes him look to some people in Hollywood. I'm sure he doesn't want to be rejected from -- or included in! -- a casting call, because he's "the guy engaged to that Miley girl." I'm sure he wants to establish himself on his own, for his own merits, and Miley is most definitely overshadowing that right now -- and not in a way that should make either of them very proud.

All of that said, who could blame the guy for bordering on "over it" with this engagement? If her antics continue to make him cringe and throw his professional rep under the bus, it may be only a matter of time before he throws in the towel.

Do you believe Liam was embarrassed by Miley's performance?
