Miley Cyrus, 26, and Liam Hemsworth’s, 29, breakup news shocked fans all around the world on Saturday after just seven months of marriage.
But according to sources, people close to them are not all that surprised.
The beauty broke her silence on the matter on Sunday morning saying she was going to let life take its path in its own time, as reports revealed their split ‘wasn’t surprising’ as they had ‘a lot of issues’.
Don’t fight evolution, because you will never win, ‘ she begun the deep and metaphoric post.
‘Like the mountain I am standing on top of, which was once under water, connected with Africa, change is inevitable. The Dolomites were not created over night, it was over millions of years that this magnificent beauty was formed.’
My dad always told me ‘Nature never hurries but it is always on time’…. it fills my heart with peace and hope KNOWING that is true.’
She finished with a reflection on her own life: ‘I was taught to respect the planet and its process and I am committed to doing the same with my own …. [sic].’
Miley’s post comes after People revealed on Sunday: ‘This split isn’t shocking to people who are actually with them every day.’
‘After they reunited, everyone thought they were this ‘perfect’ couple, but they still had a lot of issues.’
They continued: ‘They’re not on the same page when it comes to a lot of fundamental things that make a relationship work. It’s not surprising at all.’
And according to OK! Australia, one issue appeared to be about settling down and starting a family.
The magazine reported on Sunday that Liam wanted to settle down while Miley wasn’t ready – leading to an ‘explosive fight’ back in July 2018 – months before their secret December wedding.
He wants kids and doesn’t want to keep putting it off but it’s not quite the timeline Miley had in mind… he is left heartbroken,’ the source said at the time.
‘Miley put off plans for the wedding and Liam was growing tired of it… They haven’t been getting along in recent months.’
The insider added: ‘[She] didn’t really want to get married. It’s something that everyone else seemed to get but Liam. [His] family had been begging him to see the light for a long time, but he had faith in Miley. Now he feels like an idiot.’
The Mother’s Daughter singer’s reps confirmed the split on Saturday, hours after she was seen kissing Kaitlynn Carter on a boat in Italy – a week after her split from ‘husband’ Brody Jenner.
‘Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,’ the rep revealed.
‘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.’
And Liam is yet to say anything of the news, Miley slying addressed the split on Sunday while with Kaitlynn on the boat.
She lip synced her old Bangerz lyrics – a track she released after their initial split in 2013.
‘Why do I need his milli’s when I got Billy on he speed dial?’ she sung while referencing famous dad, Billy Ray Cyrus.
Reports back in late May, published by OK! magazine in Australia, claimed that the Hunger Games star was ‘unhappy’ with some of his wife’s antics.
An alleged source claimed the Australian star was embarrassed when Miley licked his face at the Met Gala on May 4.
The Gala was the couple’s last public appearance together before announcing their split.
‘She was licking his face for the cameras on the red carpet, then grinding on people on the dance floor inside and grabbing her crotch,’ the alleged source is quoted as having said.
The report went on to say Miley got a ‘tongue-lashing from her unimpressed husband’ for ‘going too far’.
‘He gets turned off when she acts up for the cameras. He really doesn’t like that side of her, because he is the total opposite’ the source is said to have added.
Miley pulled a similar stunt on the red carpet at the world premiere of Avengers: Endgame in Los Angeles on April 22.
Their were hints back in May that the pair may have been heading for splitsville in an unearthed behind-the-scenes clip from The Met Gala.
Model Amber Valletta shared a short video clip to Instagram Stories on the night, showing the couple in a party bus together, on their way to the star-studded event.
Miley appeared to be kneeling on her seat as she played a snippet of her latest, unreleased track, believed to be called Bad Karma.
Dancing as the music played, Miley mimed the lyrics: ‘They say it’s bad karma, being such a heartbreaker.
‘I’m always picked a giver, ’cause I’ve always been a taker. I’d rather just do it, then I’ll think about it later. Kiss me bad karma’.
While singing the words, ‘I’ve always picked a giver, ’cause I’ve always been a taker’ Miley pointed at Liam, who was dancing behind her, indicating the lyrics were about their relationship.
Written across the clip were the words ‘bad karma’ and a broken heart emoji.
The break-up comes after Miley dished to Elle magazine last month about how she ‘doesn’t fit into a stereotypical wife role.’
‘I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married. But my relationship is unique,’ she told the magazine.
‘I mean, do people really think that I’m at home in a f—ing apron cooking dinner? I’m in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women.’
‘People become vegetarian for health reasons, but bacon is still f–ing good, and I know that,’ she added.
‘I made a partner decision. This is the person I feel has my back the most. I definitely don’t fit into a stereotypical wife role. I don’t even like that word.’
Miley and Liam secretly wed in front of their family in a surprise ceremony at their home in Franklin, Tennessee in December 2018.
They first met on set of The Last Song in 2009 and have shared an on-and-off relationship ever since.
