In case you’ve been living under a rock, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have officially split after just seven months of marriage. And there’s basically been a whirlwind of drama and scandal that’s followed this news.
Hours before Miley’s rep released a statement officially confirming the break up, photos surfaced of the 26-year-old singer kissing Brody Jenner’s ex Kaitlynn Carter while on holidays in Italy.
Since then Miley and Brody have traded rather savage comments on Instagram, but Liam has remained silent on the matter.
Of course, amongst all of this Hollywood drama we knew that the one person we needed to turn to for all the inside information was none other than gossip guru Perez Hilton.
And so Kyle and Jackie O called up Perez this morning in order to get his opinion on the scandal that’s got everyone talking.
Perez told us that he found the timing of the news rather “suspect” and actually called out Miley for being “disrespectful” in the way that she’s handled the split.
“I find the timing of it all very suspect,” Perez told us. “The statement confirming their split wasn’t released until after photos started to circulate of Miley Cyrus on vacation with Brody Jenner’s soon-to-be ex wife and making out.
“To me it’s insensitive,” he continued. “You know I get it. I don’t even think they ever really had a fully committed marriage, she hinted at that herself earlier this year at an interview saying that he relationship with Liam was very complex.
“But to me it was disrespectful. I would’ve thought that, okay, if you’re already going to be making out with other people, then let people know this is where we’re at now.”
The statement in question came from Cyrus’ rep after the photos began to appear, confirming that her and Liam had split.
“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” the rep said in a statement. “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.”
Miley has since spoken out herself on Instagram, posting a rather lengthy message about evolving and accepting change.
As for the cause of the split between Miley and Liam, which came as quite a shock seeing as the pair were only married in December 2019, Perez says he had heard that Liam had been unhappy with Miley’s recent behaviour.
“We don’t know but I am hearing that Liam was not comfortable with a lot of the 2019 Miley Cyrus which seems to be very different to the 2018 Miley Cyrus,” Perez said.
“You know, they got married last year and if you go back and look at her wedding photos she really felt and looked like a different person last year. But this year she’s kind of back to her old, very rebellious ways and maybe just didn’t like that.”
