The source said: “He wants kids and doesn’t want to keep putting it off but it’s not quite the timeline Miley had in mind… he is left heartbroken.
“Miley put off plans for the wedding and Liam was growing tired of it… They haven’t been getting along in recent months.
It was this week reported that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth split up over clashing views on starting a family.
A source told OK! Australia that Liam, 28, was ready to start a family, while 25-year-old Miley wasn’t on the same page.
“She didn’t really want to get married. It’s something that everyone else seemed to get but Liam. [His] family had been begging him to see the light for a long time, but he had faith in Miley. Now he feels like an idiot.”
While GLAMOUR has reached out to a rep for both Miley and Liam and is awaiting comment, a video shared by Liam himself may suggest the rumours aren’t true.
The actor posted an Instagram story showing him and Miley cruising in his car and larking around, just like any other couple.
Take a look for yourself…
It looks like Liam’s video proves all is well in the Hemsworth-Cyrus camp – and we are glad to see it!
The rumours come after Miley deleted all of the photos on her Instagram account. While there’s nothing to suggest this is linked to the split news, we haven’t seen much of Miley recently.
Last year, following her self-imposed “media blackout”, Miley Cyrus spoke out about her relationship with hubby Liam Hemsworth and she got honest!
“I think, know that everything is happening for the right reason,” Miley said while speaking to SiriusXM’s Hits 1 in Hollywood.
The couple split in 2013, as Miley revamped her image from Disney star to the girl who infamously twerked on Robin Thicke at the VMAs. They were first seen back together in January 2016.
Miley said she would tell her younger self: “I think … everything is happening for the right reason, and I knew that when we weren’t together for the first time. I didn’t know if that was the end of it, or if we’d be back together again, but knew that wherever I was going, I was on the right path.”
The pair needed to breakup to have the relationship they have today: “I think, people who break up and get back together, I think that’s awesome, because you know it’s true, but you get time to be yourself. You get time to grow up. I think if you’re growing up attached to another person, you never really get solid as your own being.”
It’s not the first time Miley has spoken about getting back with Liam, telling Billboard magazine.
“I needed to change so much. And changing with someone else not changing like that is too hard,” she told the interviewer. “We had to re-fall for each other.”
Miley Cyrus drops new music video for “Malibu” the lyrics are truly beautiful ?
Miley even wrote a song about her relationship with Liam. The track, Malibu, includes the lyrics, “I never would’ve believed you if three years ago you told me I’d be here writing this song.”
Speaking of the track, she said: “They’re going to talk about me if I come out of a restaurant with Liam. So why not put the power back in my relationship and say, ‘This is how I feel’?”
Their love story 2.0 started when Miley and Liam hung out over Christmas and New Year in 2015. “Miley came back to LA after spending the holidays with Liam. She had the time of her life being with him and his family,” a source told E! News at the time.
Miley also set tongues wagging when she posed for a photo on Instagram wearing the engagement ring Liam gave her the first time around…
To be fair, if we had a 3.5-carat, custom-designed Neil Lane engagement ring we would never take it off.
When we first heard the news that old flames Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were back together after splitting back in 2013, we were thrilled.
An insider told E News! at the time that Liam’s family is pleased to have Miley back in their life, and think that they can make it work now that they’re older.
“Liam never stopped loving Miley. Liam and Miley’s timing was just off the first time they were engaged, many things played into them calling it off,” an insider told the website.
“They both needed to grow up and figure themselves out more. Liam’s family always liked Miley but they supported Liam’s decision at the time. They did feel that both of them were too young.” The source added, “They are in love and it’s a different time now for them.”
Back in 2015, when the pair had broken up, Liam opened up about his five year relationship with Miley saying his feelings for her will never change.
When asked if he felt like he’d “dodged a bullet,” he said: “You fall in love with who you fall in love with; you can never choose. I guess some people just come with a little more baggage.
“I mean, look-we were together five years, so I don’t think those feelings will ever change. And that’s good because that proves to me that it was real. It wasn’t just a fling. It really was an important part of my life and always will be,” he told Men’s Fitness.
He continued: “She’s a free spirit. I think she’ll always surprise people with what she does, but she’s not a malicious person in any way. She’s a young girl who wants to do what she wants to do.”
Likewise, Miley told Australian talk show host Chris Bath: “I love Liam, Liam loves me”.
We hope everything works out for this pair, either way.
