In December 2018, Australian-born actor Liam Hemsworth and singer Miley Cyrus got married in a top-secret ceremony at their Franklin, Tennessee home.
The couple met in 2009 on the set of the romantic drama The Last Song. They dated off and on until Hemsworth proposed in 2012. They broke up a year later before rekindling their romance in 2015. Cyrus and Hemsworth finally tied the knot in a top-secret wedding at their Franklin, Tennessee, home in December 2018.
On August 10, the couple announced their separation in a statement to PEOPLE.
“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” the statement read. “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.”
Even though sources said Cyrus wasn’t in a rush to file for divorce, and that there “is absolutely hope that they will get back together again,” Hemsworth has officially filed for divorce, TMZ reports. He filed the documents in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences.
There are lots of claims of wrongdoing by both parties, and Cyrus would like to clear the air to people who said that she had extramarital relationships.
In a series of 11 tweets, the singer went into detail on how she has made mistakes in her past, but that she is “refusing” to let anyone say she cheated.
She writes, “I can accept that the life I’ve chosen means I must live completely open and transparent with my fans who I love, and the public, 100% of the time. What I cannot accept is being told I’m lying to cover up a crime I haven’t committed. I have nothing to hide.”
Cyrus then revealed she lost a deal with Walmart when she was 17 for smoking pot out of a bong, got her role in the kids movie Hotel Transylvania taken away for giving Hemsworth a penis cake and licking it.
“But the truth is, once Liam & I reconciled,I meant it, & I was committed. There are NO secrets to uncover here. I’ve learned from every experience in my life. I’m not perfect, I don’t want to be, it’s boring. I’ve grown up in front of you, but the bottom line is, I HAVE GROWN UP,” she said. “I can admit to a lot of things but I refuse to admit that my marriage ended because of cheating. Liam and I have been together for a decade. I’ve said it before & it remains true, I love Liam and always will.”
