The internet has not stopped buzzing since Liam Hemsworth officially filed for divorce from Miley Cyrus, bringing their 10-year relationship to an end. In an Instagram post, Hemsworth made it clear that he wishes nothing but the best for Cyrus and wants to deal with this situation in private. But a source who spoke to Entertainment Tonight just illuminated exactly why this divorce happened.
According to the source, Hemsworth just felt like it was time for him and Cyrus to go their separate ways. "Liam's decision to file for divorce is sad, but in the end, it was never going to work," the source said. "They are too different. Liam never wanted to share Miley with anyone. He loves her and he is far too traditional. He finally realized he just wants to start fresh."
The source added that Hemsworth had "come to terms that it was time to move on" and that his family had been "incredibly supportive" of his decision. "They are relieved it's over," the source said.
"At first, Liam wanted to just give it time but he finally felt like things were getting nasty and he didn't want to drag it out publicly," adds the insider. "He decided it was all too much."
It definitely has gotten intense: In addition to people speculating over the song Cyrus released that seems to be about their breakup, "Slide Away," there have been rumors about infidelity, partying, and fighting being reasons the two of them drifted apart. The gossip has only grown since Cyrus was seen kissing her longtime friend Kaitlynn Carter, Brody Jenner's ex, in Italy. Cyrus took to Twitter on Thursday, August 22, to shut down rumors there was cheating on her end.
"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," she wrote. "I’ve said it before & it remains true, I love Liam and always will."
