It comes following multiple reports over the last few days about the “Hunger Games” star and “Mother’s Daughter” hitmaker’s relationship being on the rocks. The first reports stated that the celebrity duo had separated after less than nine months after they had tied the knot at a private ceremony in December surrounded by family and friends.
Those were followed by pictures of the “Wrecking Ball” singer and Brody Jenner’s ex, Kaitlyn Carter, kissing while on vacation together. The two reportedly didn’t start seeing each other until they ended things with their spouses, per TMZ.
Reports surfaced that Cyrus attempted to save her marriage and pleaded with Liam for the two to go into therapy.
“He [Liam] didn’t come close to meeting her half way,” one source told TMZ.
