Part of the deal of celebrity status is that fans are going to watch your life from afar and talk about your personal choices. Fans become invested in what their favorite celebrities do, and this definitely extends to their love lives.

When stars break up, fans can be heartbroken right along with them, and they also often secretly — or not so secretly — hope for reunions between the couples they miss the most. Of course, many celebrity relationships end so badly that there is little hope for a reconciliation, but there are others where the sparks continue to fly and fans watch for them to ignite. 

Cyrus has recently been sharing some intimate details about her former relationship with Liam Hemsworth, and it has several fans crossing their fingers that the pair could find themselves together again. 

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth had a long relationship

Cyrus and Hemsworth met on the set of The Last Song in 2009. In March 2010, the couple appeared on the red carpet together and confirmed they were dating.

Just a few months later, the pair broke up amid clashing work schedules, but they were back together a month after that. This cycle of breaking up and making up would continue throughout much of their relationship. In March 2012, Cyrus was spotted with a ring that had engagement rumors flying, but she denied them.

Then, just three months later, she and Hemsworth officially announced their engagement. By August 2013, Cyrus unfollowed Hemsworth on social media, and her rep confirmed that the engagement was off. This break seemed especially serious, and both stars went on to date other people. 

While that looked like the end of it, eagle-eyed fans spotted Cyrus in pictures posted by friends of the Hemsworths and speculated a reunion might have happened. In January 2016, Cyrus was spotted wearing her old engagement ring again, and the couple eventually confirmed the engagement was back on.

By September 2017, though, there was no sign of a wedding on the horizon, and Cyrus suggested she was too young to think about it: “I don’t envision marriage. I’m 24. I hope I get to live a little bit more.”

The couple remained in a state of what seemed like eternal engagement for a long time. During that time, they tragically lost their home during the Malibu fires, but Hemsworth daringly saved all of their many animals, and Cyrus assured the press he got “a lot of action” as a thank you.

In December 2018, the pair finally tied the knot. By May 2019, Hemsworth was in the press saying he wanted “maybe 20” kids with Cyrus, and all seemed well. 

In July 2019, Cyrus made some comments that suggested things weren’t as rosy as they seemed. “Do people really think that I’m at home in a fu**ing apron cooking dinner? I’m in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women,” Cyrus said in part before adding “I definitely don’t fit into a stereotypical wife role. I don’t even like that word.”

Just a month later, the pair would confirm their break up. At first, fans hoped it would be another temporary split, but things definitely looked more and more permanent as time went on.

Miley Cyrus Left Church, Religion Because of Her Sexuality and LGBTQ Friends

It has now been over a year since the couple announced their split, but fans are still holding out hope they might reconcile. Those shipping the reunion look to signs like the fact that Cyrus has not yet changed her name back (it’s officially Miley Ray Hemsworth) for hope. 

Adding even more fuel to the potential reunion fire are recent comments from Cyrus. Appearing on the podcast Call Her Daddy, Cyrus revealed some very personal details about her past with Hemsworth, including the fact that she lost her virginity to him when she was just 16: “I didn’t go all the way with a dude until I was 16, but I ended up marrying the guy.”

Fans who are itching to make these comments a sign that Cyrus is pining for her lost love might take a cue from Cyrus’ own advice. When she was confirming her split from Hemsworth, Cyrus had this to say: “And so, don’t make it some drama story if next week we hang out and we’re getting pizza. We’ve been friends for 10 years, and we’re going to continue to be friends. Just don’t make it something that it is not.”
