“Nothing Breaks Like a Heart” singer Miley Cyrus opened up about her personal life and her failed marriage to Liam Hemsworth during a recent bombshell interview with controversial radio host Howard Stern.
28-year-old actress and singer Miley Cyrus left everyone in shock (it wasn’t exactly the first time) back in August 2019 when her marriage with longtime on-and-off boyfriend Liam Hemsworth ended only 8 months after their wedding.
Even though it surfaced that it was Hemsworth who filed for divorce from the singer, citing “irreconcilable differences,” a representative for Cyrus had previously confirmed the couple’s decision to split.

THERE IS STILL LOVE
Most recently, in a tell-all interview with media personality Howard Stern for his namesake SiriusXM radio show, Cyrus opened up about her relationship with her ex-husband, and she also cited the real reason for the demise of their marriage.
After Cyrus discussed her recent collaboration with fellow singer Dua Lipa, with the “Hannah Montana” star celebrating been single and available, Stern was curious to know what had led to her divorce from Hemsworth.
As was much-publicized, Cyrus and Hemsworth lost their Malibu home to the 2018 California wildfires while still engaged, which caused a mental and physical trauma on Cyrus, who was so devastated that she ended up rushing to marry.
Cyrus explained that after losing all her personal belongings, her creations, and her memories in the fire, she clung to the only thing that was left of her pass, which was Hemsworth, whom she knows since she was 16 years old.
“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,” Cyrus shared with Stern, more than a year after she and Hemsworth parted ways for good.
On her December 2 appearance on “The Howard Stern Show,” Cyrus covered a lot of different subjects about her professional and personal life, including her need to have a romantic partner that helps her laugh at her anxieties.
Cyrus also opened up about how she is transiting being single amid the COVID-19 pandemic, revealing that she has struggled to continue meeting people and dating, having to recur to a lot of FaceTime interactions.
The singer also addressed the subject of her sobriety, and she shared that it hasn’t been that challenging for her to stay sober once she set out her mind to do it, even though she admits that the pandemic tempted to break her determination.
While she said that she doesn’t consider herself an alcoholic, Cyrus accepts that alcohol consumption prevents her from reaching her full potential, something that she is no longer willing to do.
Apart from limiting her work performance, alcohol has badly affected Cyrus’ relationships, either with her family or with her partners, and she wants to stay sober in order to be her best self, something on which she is still working on.
