Liam Hemsworth’s family is reportedly begging him to ‘cut off all contact’ with his estranged wife Miley Cyrus.
According to The Sun, the Hemsworths are deeply concerned that Liam, 29, will reconcile with Miley, 26, after their split was announced on Saturday.
A source said: ‘Miley and Liam both keep saying the word “separated”, not “divorcing”, which has his family really worried they’re leaving the door open to get back together in the future.’
The insider added: ‘[Their marriage] has been toxic for way too long. They’re not meant to be together.’ Liam is the youngest member of the Hemsworth acting dynasty.
His brother Chris, 36, is best known for playing Thor in the Marvel Universe films. Eldest sibling Luke is currently starring in the sci-fi series Westworld.
The news comes after Liam was reportedly left ‘heartbroken’ by the photos of Miley kissing Brody Jenner’s ex Kaitlynn Carter in Lake Como last week.
After announcing their split over the weekend, allegations have sprung from both sides concerning the reasons for the demise of their marriage, including claims that Liam was abusing substances and that Miley is ‘immature’.
Insiders gave an insight into Liam’s reaction, with sources telling Maybach Media: ‘He was heartbroken and blindsided by those photos [of Miley and Kaitlynn].’
Liam and Miley announced their break-up on Saturday after she was spotted kissing Kaitlynn, 30. However, it’s since been claimed they actually split several months ago.
The couple, who have dated on-off for 10 years, stunned fans when they announced their separation after just seven months of marriage. Now, insiders have commented on his reaction to the kissing pictures and insisted that Miley’s immaturity caused problems for the couple.
It was apparent on Wednesday that Miley and Kaitlynn are still thoroughly enjoying each other’s company when they were seen together in LA. Miley was in the driver’s seat of a car and could be seen chatting as Kaitlynn lounged alongside.
Prior to their arrival back in LA, it was claimed that Liam’s excessive use of drugs and alcohol contributed to the split. Meanwhile, his insiders allege she was unfaithful.
Sources close to Miley told TMZ the songstress tried ‘valiantly’ to save the marriage but couldn’t accept Liam’s ‘drinking a lot’ and ‘using certain drugs’.
Miley’s struggles with substance abuse in the past meant it was a ‘deal-breaker’ for the actress and especially hard for her to move past. Sources on Liam’s side claim this is not correct, according to TMZ, and say the real issue was Miley’s infidelity.
The Hunger Games star’s pals say the Wrecking Ball singer is using the drug and alcohol accusations to distract from the real cause of the split.
‘This is another attempt by Miley to distract from her infidelity and recent outrageous public behaviour’ said a Liam insider. Liam’s sources dispute the insistence by Miley’s insiders that they were separated for months before she began her fling with Kaitlynn.
Miley and Liam married last December in her native Tennessee after an on-off romance that began when they co-starred in the 2010 movie The Last Song.
They have been through multiple break-ups, including two reported splits in 2010 and another that lasted from 2013 to 2016. Brody, the son of Caitlyn Jenner, began dating Kaitlynn in 2013 and married her last summer at a lavish ceremony in Indonesia.
Caitlyn declined to show up to her son’s nuptials, a slight that Brody admitted was painful on The Hills: New Beginnings. ‘Honestly, it really did hurt and I would have loved to have had her there, but she had better things to do, apparently,’ he said on the show.
It emerged at the beginning of this month that Brody and Kaitlynn had decided to end their relationship. The plot thickened when further details surfaced indicating that Brody had declined to ever legally marry Kaitlynn, TMZ reported.
In fact, the relationship fell apart specifically because of Brody’s refusal to make the marriage legal and have a baby with Kaitlynn, according to sources.
