Is it just me or does it feel like it’s an end of an era? First, we were heartbroken and potentially traumatised by the fact that Brangelina is no more, and now Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have announced their separation after almost a decade long romance. It’s really sad to see these things happen but you’ve got to remember that celebrities are only people and they fall out of love the same as everyone else and they can’t stay together just because we want them too. But let’s take this opportunity and go through the timeline of Miley and Liam.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth met in 2009 when they were cast in the movie adaptation of a Nicolas Sparks novel The Last Song. They clearly felt a spark, and you can see it in the movie, but rumors about them dating started right away. Miley was only 17 and Liam was 19. Such adorable young love. At first, they tried to hide it and Miley would say that Liam is her best friend but eventually paparazzi caught them making out.
At the beginning of 2010, they confirmed that they are in a relationship and proved it further by attending an Oscar even together. They also walked the red carpet for the movie premiere of The Last Song as a couple. Miley even said that Liam was her muse for the song Can’t Be Tamed. She said a lot of the song is about him. 2010 was also the year they had their first breakup. Apparently because of Miley’s work schedule they broke up in August. But by September they were back together, running errands and going out for dinner as a couple.
In November they took a timeout again.
By 2011 Miley and Liam are back together and this time they’re saying they’re gonna take things slow and just enjoy their time together. They go to several events together, walk some red carpets, pose for some cute couple pictures.
Liam and Miley attend the Vanity Fair Oscar party together and Liam says in an interview that Miley makes him really happy. They also go to the Hunger Games premiere together and Miley is seen wearing a ring on her finger so obviously rumors about engagement start spreading like wildfire. Miley, of course, denies those rumors on Twitter, but in June of the same year, they confirm that they’re engaged.
2013 started off pretty chill but turned out to be a very rocky year for the couple. There were rumors about Miley cheating, sometimes they would go to premieres together, but they went to separate Oscar parties, the ring on Miley’s finger would disappear and people would speculate that the engagement is off, but then the ring would be back. But at the end of the year, Miley unfollowed Liam on Twitter and a few days later her publicist confirmed that the engagement is off and they’ve broken up. She also talks about her breakup in an interview and says that she’s not dwelling on it, it’s the best time of her life.
Miley starts and ends a relationship with Patrick Schwarzenegger and also comes out as pansexual. Rumors spread about her dating Stella Maxwell, but Miley says she’s just enjoying the single life. Liam in the meantime spends this time saying him and Miley will always be good friends and that his relationship with Miley was an important time in his life and you can never choose who you fall in love with. He also adopts a rescue dog.
Miley goes to Australia and shows up on Instagram accounts of Liam’s friends. It looks like they might be back together and having fun down under. By the end of the year the engagement ring is back on, Miley gets some tattoos with Liam’s family, she also gets a small tattoo of vegemite, Liam’s favorite condiment. And Liam, in turn, opens up in an interview and talks about how their breakup was hard on him but it was right at the time when asked about the current state of affairs he says “people will figure it out, they already have”. They show up on each other’s Instagrams too.
2017 – 2018
The year is full of love, cute pictures together and Miley writes and performs Malibu as a way of taking back the control over the narrative of their relationship. She says it’s been hard because she was going through a massive life change in 2013 and they’ve had to fall for each other all over again but Liam basically saved her and she’s happy to be embarking on this journey with him. They show up to the premiere of Thor: Ragnarok together – a first public outing as a couple in years. 2018 also features a lot of public outings, some adorable pictures and videos together, Miley’s house in Malibu burns down and Liam helps save her animals. Oh and obviously they get married.
The year starts with proclamations of love and Liam even mentions that he’d love to have about 20 kids with Miley, but later, when they don’t have so many dogs. But as we know now it wasn’t all perfect. August 10 is the day the bug news was confirmed – Miley and Liam are no more. They have broken up, Miley went on a trip with Kaitlynn Carter, some pictures of them kissing surfaced, and in the following days, Liam filed for divorce. Miley is getting full custody of all their pets. Liam made a quit post on Instagram to say “Hi all
Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward.
This is a private matter and I have not made, nor will I be making, any comments to any journalists or media outlets. Any reported quotes attributed to me are false.
Peace and Love.”
