Ex-wife Miley Cyrus has been just as heartbroken, releasing a touching new single titled "Slide Away" last week. In the beautiful three-and-a-half minute ballad, the artist reflects on her split from Liam Hemsworth, calling for a healthier and happier life without him.
"Once upon a time it was made for us/ Woke up one day and it turned to dust/ Baby we were fine but now we're lost/ So it's time to let it go."
"I am not who I used to be/You say that everything changed/ You're right we're grown now," Miley sings.
In the single — which is her first new material since "On A Roll"— Miley also discusses moving on from the Australian actor, revealing she plans to "go back to the city life" while surfer Liam "heads to the ocean".
Halfway through the song the talented artist sings, "don't want the whisky and pills"— a reference that adds weight to claims the couple parted ways due to Liam's excessive partying habits, "drinking" and "drug use". The artwork accompanying 'Slide away'— which features a collection of whisky bottles and pills floating in the water— also seems to imply these substances played a part in the demise of their decade long relationship.
The Black Mirror star's heartbreaking single comes five days after a representative for the pop star confirmed she'd parted ways with her husband of seven months. Since then, dozens of insiders have dished on their breakup, with many admitting Miley and Liam are now at war— with claims of drug abuse and infidelity at the heart of their nasty split.
According to TMZ, sources on the pop star's side say Miley desperately tried to save their seven-month-long marriage, however, Liam's alleged "drinking" and "drug use" spelled the end of their decade long relationship. The questionable source also added that Miley wasn't accepting of Liam's alleged party antics, especially since she's "struggled with substance abuse in the past".
Since these shocking accusations emerged— which we should take with a grain of salt— a source close to The Hunger Games actor has hit back, claiming Miley's friends are intentionally using this as a coverup so the attention is taken away from supposed "infidelity" on the "Wrecking Ball" singer's behalf.
"This is another attempt by Miley to distract from her infidelity and recent outrageous public behavior," the insider said.
Despite making out with Kaitlynn Carter hours after announcing she'd split from husband Liam Hemsworth, a source close to the A-listers claim Miley spent months trying to save her marriage to the Australian actor, however they decided to secretly part ways in June.
The insider revealed the songstress, 26, begged Liam to go to couple's therapy, however "he didn't come close to meeting her halfway". So, basically, they're implying Liam gave up on their marriage a long time ago.
It has since been said that Miley “was the one to end" their seven-month-long marriage after revealing "she wanted an open relationship" and "wasn’t ready for just one person for forever.”
The jaw-dropping claims come after an insider close to Miley and The Hills: New Beginnings reality star revealed the duo— who were photographed making out while relaxing on a yacht in Italy—have been "hooking up for a couple of months".
And, in an unexpected turn of events, Kaitlynn's ex-husband Brody Jenner is, apparently, "totally okay with it".
Yesterday, WHO shared a video from May showing the "Mother's Daughter" songstress snapping at Liam. In the clip, Liam can be seen smiling alongside the pop sensation before he jokingly tickles her stomach. Miley, who was visibly angry at the time, took exception to his cheeky gesture, grabbing his hand and forcefully pushing him away.
Although we're not entirely sure what she said to Liam when she shoved him, it's clear he got the message loud and clear, quickly walking away as he smiled awkwardly. Miley— who obviously wanted to be the centre of attention— didn't seem bothered in the slightest that she embarrassed her hubby in front of hundreds of people, shrugging him off as she ran her fingers through her hair and continued posing.

"Hi all, Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward," said Liam, who met Miley on the set of their movie The Last Song in 2010.
