How Liam Hemsworth Really Feels About Miley Cyrus’ New Hookup

Just when fans thought Miley Cyrus had finally settled down, she and Liam Hemsworth announced their divorce. Not a day later, photos popped up of Miley making out with Kaitlynn Carter poolside in Lake Como, Italy.  

There have been a lot of rumors around this breakup. Both camps are trying to make their half of the couple seem like the wronged party. Whether the rumors about Miley or Liam’s behavior are true, seeing your ex-wife moving on so soon after breaking up has to hurt.

Liam’s people say Miley is just trying to hurt him 

Again, there’s a lot of he said/she said going on. Sources close to Liam told Page Six he’s gutted by the pictures. They say this is just an example of Miley’s immaturity, and that this was done to hurt Liam. 

They also say Miley and her reps have been trying to paint Liam as the bad guy, but that’s not the case. There are claims Liam was drinking and partying too much. Sources close to Miley say he got upset with her when she tried to get him to cool it. According to Liam, this is false.  

Fans have long seen Miley as the bigger partier. Being a wild child has long been part of her image. According to Liam’s pals, she tried to reverse the narrative and make him seem like the bigger drinker. Liam and his reps deny that.  

Miley and Liam have been together for a long time

Miley and Liam met on the set of a Nicholas Sparks movie in 2009. They’ve had their ups and downs since then, but decided to finally tie the knot in December of 2018.  

The marriage may have been doomed to fail from the beginning, considering the pair had just split up a few months before. Publicly, Miley wavered over whether a marriage was for her at all. She’s not a traditional person, and she certainly doesn’t have a normal life. Marriage is already hard work, but those factors make it harder. 

 Is Miley’s hook-up just a way to hurt Liam?

It’s hard to know for sure if this is just a ploy by Miley to hurt Liam, or if she’s truly getting back on her feet with Kaitlynn Carter. It certainly seems like this may have been more than just a makeout session for Instagram. 

The two women vacationed together in Italy, along with Miley’s sister.  Miley and Kaitlynn reportedly went out on a date while on the trip and even got a couple’s massage.  

Miley has said she feels her relationship with Liam was “too new” and “too modern” for people to understand. Although Liam’s people deny any cheating from either party, or that they had an open marriage, Miley has made it clear she’s always been attracted to women as well as men.  

It seems like these two didn’t go into their marriage with the same ideas about what the union would mean. Miley has talked about how non-traditional their marriage was, but Liam may not have been on board with that kind of partnership.  

It also seems like they’re expressing their pain in different ways. Liam is mourning the loss quietly, while Miley is making a splash on the dating scene. That just goes to show how different these two are. Considering their history, we can’t yet call this the end of the relationship.
