Though fans were certain Cyrus and Hemsworth had the picture-perfect relationship behind closed doors, according to friends and family, that wasn’t the case.

Friends of the couple weren’t surprised at all that they split

It is safe to say that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s decision to split after eight months of marriage definitely took everyone by surprise.

While many of us were certain Cyrus and Hemsworth were enjoying every moment of married life and had the perfect relationship, it has been revealed that their marriage had its issues.

Though the split was extremely heartbreaking for fans to learn about, those close to the couple have been expecting this to happen for a while now.

According to sources, the couple’s friends and family weren’t taken back by this news in the slightest and knew their relationship wasn’t going to get better.

“This split isn’t shocking to people who are actually with them every day,” a source recently told People.

While things were going well for Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s relationship shortly after tying the knot back in December, they soon found themselves having problems within their marriage.

“After they reunited, everyone thought they were this ‘perfect’ couple, but they still had a lot of issues. They’re not on the same page when it comes to a lot of fundamental things that make a relationship work,” the source continued. “It’s not surprising at all.”

On August 9, a rep for Cyrus and Hemsworth released a statement explaining the couple’s decision to call it quits.

“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” the rep said. “Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.”

Cyrus and Hemsworth are leaning on those close to them

Though their friends and family had a hunch their split was coming, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are still leaning on those people to get them through this difficult time.

Liam Hemsworth was recently spotted out with older brother Chris Hemsworth in Byron Bay, Australia, where he has been staying with the actor and his family.

The famous brothers were seen grabbing frozen yogurt during their outing, where Hemsworth was reportedly approached by Daily Mail Australia with questions surrounding the split.

“You don’t understand what it’s like,” Hemsworth told the outlet. “I don’t want to talk about it mate.”

As for Miley Cyrus, she has been soaking up some sun in Lake Como, Italy with her older sister, Brandi, and Brody Jenner’s ex-wife, Kaitlynn Carter.

The singer was even photographed kissing The Hills: New Beginnings co-star while sitting poolside during their lavish vacation.

A source told People that Cyrus and Carter have mutual friends in common and are “just having fun” together.

While there is no telling what the future holds for Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s relationship, at least they have people in their corners who are helping them cope with their split.
