Well, this got nasty in no time!

When news broke last weekend of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s breakup, the respectful silence followed by respectful statements coming out of both camps seemed to indicate a peaceful approach to ending their on-again-off-again relationship, which culminated in less than a year of marriage. Hemsworth posted a demure but kind Instagram message, while Cyrus’s rep released a statement saying, “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.” All this despite the fact that Cyrus was reportedly rebounding in Italy with Brody Jenner’s ex Kaitlynn Carter.

But the peace didn’t hold, at least according to the tabloids. Last week, TMZ reported that sources from Cyrus’s and Hemsworth’s camps are hard at work blaming the other side. According to the tabloid, Cyrus “tried valiantly to save the marriage and the dealbreaker was that Liam was drinking a lot and using certain drugs.” Hemsworth’s sources deny this narrative, claiming Cyrus cheated and that this is ultimately what tanked the relationship. A source told TMZ, “This is another attempt by Miley to distract from her infidelity and recent outrageous public behavior.”

“Page Six” reported that Hemsworth was “heartbroken and blindsided by those photos” of Cyrus kissing Carter. “They are still married and they really did love each other,” the source continued. “She’s really immature and always has been.” Okay, but what do you really think?!

I don’t know what the heck to believe, because then People reported that, according to a source, Cyrus is having difficulty “letting him go,” although “at the end of the day, she wants to be happy and she genuinely wants Liam to be happy too.”

Meanwhile, Cyrus and Carter have returned to Los Angeles, where they’ve remained close to one another. Over the weekend the pair was spotted grabbing lunch with Miley’s mom, Tish Cyrus. Then on Monday, “Page Six” reported that, according to a source, Cyrus and Carter were hanging out at West Hollywood’s Soho House on Friday, their affection for one another on full display. “They were obsessed with each other. They couldn’t keep their hands off each other,” the source said. “They were kissing and making out everywhere. In the bathroom, at the bar, in the middle of the floor. They were basically having sex. There’s no question they’re together.”

Now that Cyrus is back in L.A., I wonder who will get custody of their beloved pets.
