Nearly a year after her divorce from Liam Hemsworth was finalized, Miley Cyrus spoke candidly to Howard Stern about why the couple’s relationship failed, how she feels about Hemsworth now, and how they may not have gotten married in 2018 if they hadn’t lost their Malibu house in the Woolsey fire. Hemsworth is aware of the remarks, Entertainment Tonight reports, but they haven’t gotten under his skin, in part because he has very much moved on with Gabriella Brooks, his 22-year-old Australian model girlfriend.
“Liam Hemsworth isn’t upset by the recent interview Miley did where she says there was too much conflict in their marriage,” a source told the outlet. “Liam was very hurt when they initially broke up, but he has moved on now and is happy with Gabriella. He’s very traditional and Gabriella shares the same values as him and gets along with his family. Their relationship is easygoing and they have similar upbringings and backgrounds.”
Cyrus did tell Stern that the two privately struggled in their marriage. “There was too much conflict,” she said. She added, “When I come home, I want to be anchored by someone. I don’t get off on drama or fighting.”
She added earlier in the interview that the trauma from losing their house led her to want to get married rather than a deep desire to become Hemsworth’s wife.
“We were together since 16,” Cyrus started. “Our house burned down. We had been like, engaged—I don’t know if we really ever thought we were actually going to get married, but when we lost our house in Malibu—which if you listen to my voice pre- and post-fire, they’re very different so that trauma really affected my voice. And I was actually in South Africa, so I couldn’t come home, and like, my animals were tied to a post at the beach. I lost everything. I had polaroids of Elvis, like front row, passed on from—I got a couple grandmas to give me their Elvis polaroids. I always became friends with my friends’ grandmas so I could get the goods from the artists I love.”
“I had so much and it was all gone, every song I had ever written was in that house,” she continued. “Every photograph of me that my parents had given to me, all my scripts, I lost everything. And so in trying to put that back together, instead of going, ‘Oh, nature kind of did something I couldn’t do for myself; it forced me to let go,’ I ran toward the fire. Which is not abnormal, a lot of animals do this and end up dying, like deers run into the forest. You’re attracted to that heat and me being an intense person and not wanting to sit with it, and not wanting to go, you know, ‘What could be purposeful about this?’ I just clung to what I had left of that house, which was me and him. And I really do and did love him very, very, very much and still do, always will.”
