In the most recent news surrounding the Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth breakup, the singer reportedly wanted to split with the actor back in February.
In a recent interview with Canada’s Fashion Magazine, she talked about her song “Drive”, a song inspired by her wishes to leave Hemsworth.
“I wrote it while I was working on Valentine’s Day, emotionally it was such a hard time,” she said. “It is about needing to leave someone but not really wanting to completely cut yourself off from the relationship. It’s a time when you want to leave but you can’t. It’s also about moving on.”
Although there comes little surprise of the split, since the couple hadn’t been seen together over months, the announcement of how long Cyrus wanted to split was shocking, considering the couple only called it quits earlier last month.
The couple of eight months, at the time, called it quits only to get back together the following month. The two appeared be nearly inseparable for the next six months, although rumors of the couple taking a break surrounded them.
Cyrus was spotted wearing a giant topaz ring on her left hand ring finger, which let everyone know where Cyrus and Hemsworth’s relationship stood.
The two confirmed the headlines and rumors by announcing that they were engaged and soon to be married.
But, things began to crumble when pop culture blogger Perez Hilton tweeted that Miley Cyrus had been cheating on Liam Hemsworth with actor/musician Ed Westwick. Cyrus later responded to the tweets saying she had, “never been with Ed W,” calling the blogger a hypocrite for his promise, to not spread rumors and making physical threats. The singer was also rumored to have ties to Justin Bieber around the same time.
Despite what the singer says, the couple was seen on a date at the movies, and had been photographed together in almost five months. Then, after another absence in the tabloids and an absence of a response from Liam following Miley’s shocking MTV Music Awards performance, the two confirmed their split to E! News. Cyrus unfollowed Liam on Twitter just before the official announcement.
In the end, whatever the case may be behind the young star couple’s split, it is safe to say that the two are not getting back together anytime soon. Miley’s music career has been soaring ever since the release of her single “We Can’t Stop” and Hemsworth has recently been spotted with Mexican actress/singer Eiza Gonzalez.
