It feels like it’s been about 20 years since Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth announced they were splitting up after just eight months of marriage (and many years together—on and off). In reality, that was just in August 2019, and the couple finalized their divorce only in January.
Since that time both stars have moved on to new relationships. Hemsworth is reportedly dating model Gabriella Brooks, and Cyrus is currently self-isolating with boyfriend Cody Simpson after a brief relationship last summer with Kaitlynn Carter.
A source recently talked to *Entertainment Tonight( about how Cyrus currently feels about her ex-husband, and it seems like it’s all good vibes. “She knows how important love and marriage are for him, but she just needed her independence,” the source said. “Miley and Liam have moved on, and it seems they’re both where they most want to be in life.”
The source continued, “Miley has moved on; she feels free. She is happy and dating Cody at the moment with no pressure to marry. Miley and Cody are staying home and social-distancing together. She keeps saying this has been the best thing for her.”
According to the source who spoke to ET, Hemsworth is doing just fine too. “Liam loved Miley so much, but in the back of his mind, he always knew a life with her would prove difficult because she never seemed ready to settle down,” they said. “Liam wanted a marriage and family.”
The source added, “While Liam’s family has been a huge support since the breakup with Miley, it was Gabriella who made him realize there is life after Miley. Gabriella is quiet, low-key. She loves to be alone with Liam and isn’t seeking attention from others.”
This sounds very much like an all’s-well-that-ends-well situation, and we’re happy if Cyrus and Hemsworth are too.
