Miley Cyrus is moving on from her recent breakups. In only two months, Cyrus went from her marriage to Liam Hemsworth to a relationship with The Hills star, Kaitlynn Carter. Cyrus is currently single and it may be for the best.

In a whirlwind romance that surprised many, things with Cyrus and Carter moved fast. Cyrus moved into a relationship with Carter before Hemsworth filed divorce papers.

A photo of Cyrus and Carter appeared on Instagram before news broke of a split between Cyrus and Hemsworth, or Carter and former husband, This Hills costar, Brody Jenner. The relationship was confirmed soon after.

In early September, People confirmed Cyrus and Carter moved in together in Malibu, though their split came a few short weeks later.

“They live together and are very happy,” a source told the publication at the time. “Miley is doing great. She is moving on. She seems to have no regrets. She loves being with Kaitlynn.”

It’s unclear why Cyrus and Carter broke up. Insiders told People, “They’ve been friends forever and were there for each other when they were both getting separated. But they’re just not in a romantic relationship anymore.”

Cyrus and Carter were friends before the relationship and remain friends post-breakup. Carter recently commented on an Instagram post of Cyrus performing at the iHeartRadio Music Festival to show her support. They’re clearly OK with where things stand.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth may not be on good terms

Things may not be on as good of terms between Cyrus and Hemsworth. The longterm pair met on the set of The Last song in 2009 (Hemsworth proposed in 2012, but they called it off), and they rekindled the relationship in 2018. The two have a sordid past.

When news broke of their separation, a source told E! News that “they were drifting apart. The source added, “They have been trying to make it work for months now but haven’t felt they were connecting on the level they were feeling when they got married last year. It’s been a rough year.”

Cyrus’s rep released a statement about the formal separation in August. “Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers.”

In mid-September, Page Six reported Hemsworth was blindsided by the news of the separation. He remained largely silent after the breakup until a Daily Mail Australia reporter asked for comment.

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

He posted on Instagram wishing Cyrus “nothing but health and happiness going forward.” He then reiterated it’s all a private matter and he wouldn’t respond to further questions about the situation. Clearly Cyrus and Hemsworth have gone their separate ways, though they may not have a friendship at this time.

What is Miley Cyrus doing to heal after her public breakups

For the first time in 10 years, Cyrus is living the single life. Carter moved out of Cyrus’s Malibu home, to her own in Los Angeles. A source told E! News Carter’s trying to figure out “what comes next,” adding, “Kaitlynn is still surprised and upset about how abruptly things ended. There is not a lot of contact between Miley and Kaitlynn.”

Cyrus, on the other hand, is “hitting the reset button” on her personal life and career.

“Miley did not want to rush into anything,” another source told E! News. “She and Kaitlynn have been close friends for a long time and things got romantic. Miley was ready to call it off because she wasn’t ready for a relationship. She needs to be by herself.”

Cyrus needs time to heal from both breakups saying, “Miley feels like she got in over her head by moving on so quickly with Kaitlynn Carter after her split from Liam.”

Cyrus is spending quality time with family to re-focus. When she’s not with them or working on herself, she’s in the studio to “focus on music and updating music to how she is feeling.”

Sometimes the best thing to do after any breakup is to focus on yourself. It looks like that’s exactly what Cyrus is doing.
