Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth had a secret wedding, but their divorce wasn’t very secret when it happened just eight months after they tied the knot.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth had an on-again, off-again relationship. There is no doubt that the pair loved each other. However, things didn’t just work out for them. A divorce lawyer attempts to explain their split.
Miley Cyrus was allegedly looking for stability in Liam
Rebecca Zung, a divorce lawyer and partner at Long, Murphy & Zung, shared her thoughts about Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s divorce. She recalled a significant event that happened before their wedding.
In 2018, Hemsworth’s home in Malibu was devastated by the Woolsey fire. However, they still tied the knot in December of the same year. According to Zung, Cyrus was “looking for stability and she thought that by marrying [Hemsworth] that she would find that.”
Unfortunately, it wasn’t the right reason to get married. Thus, their marriage failed.
Expert speaks about lasting marriages
“Marriages last because there is a mutual respect for each other, of course, but part of that respect also must be a respect for the relationship,” Zung told Nicki Swift.
“Marrying a person for stability but without a romantic attraction for the person will result in failure,” she added.
Zung recalled seeing many people getting married for the wrong reasons, including money, prestige, stability, or to combat loneliness. Others walked down the aisle with other reasons that have nothing to do with love and being committed to a romantic relationship.
She added that as a divorce attorney, people who married without integrity to themselves about the reasons they are marrying would likely face a failed marriage.
Cyrus speaks about divorce from Liam
Miley Cyrus has opened up about her split from Liam Hemsworth in an interview in the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. The Wrecking Ball singer shared that she could accept the fact that their feelings changed. However, she didn’t like the report making her look like a villain for moving on so shortly after their split.
Cyrus was spotted kissing Kaitlynn Carter after their separation announcement. However, the reports alleging that she cheated on Hemsworth were not true. Cyrus couldn’t accept cheating allegations.
“I feel like, as a woman, I was villainized for moving on. They made me seem like I was disloyal, which is so against my f—king character. You attack my f—king character, and my character is everything. It’s my foundation,” Cyrus said.
“I can’t accept … just all those stories. It’s just amazing to me that the public kind of thinks that there is no gap in time that they didn’t see that could possibly be what led to this. Like, it’s not, ‘One day you were happy on the carpet, and the next you’re making out with your friend in Italy, what the [explicit]?’ Well, there was a lot of time between that that you didn’t see.”
Hemsworth has been dating Gabrielle Brooks. Meanwhile, Cyrus is single after she broke up with Cody Simpson in August.
