"He feels more at home with Gabriella than he did with Miley [Cyrus]," a source told US Weekly. "He feels like he can be his complete self without any drama."
The source continued: "Gabriella helped Liam boost his confidence and played an encouraging role in his life after his split with Miley. They are very happy together and it's comfortable and easy."
After the former couple finalised their divorce in December 2019, Liam went public with his new romance, begging the question: What does Miley think about his new lover?
While most of us assumed she was distraught— seeing as she reportedly turned into a "green-eyed monster" when Liam was pictured getting cosy with his ex Maddison Brown— the former Disney star is said to have put the past behind her.
"Miley is not asking their mutual friends about Liam’s new relationship. She doesn’t want to make anyone uncomfortable. She is not checking in on Liam" a source close to the pop sensation turned Black Mirror actress told Hollywood life.
"Miley and Liam have not spoken in quite some time. They barely spoke after the break-up. They’ll always love each other deep down and friends close to them feel they both still do love one another."
The insider continued: "When they first broke up, a lot of their closest friends were in disbelief and thought they’d get back together. They were always fighting and breaking up and making up and everyone thought they’d get past this, but it got too deep.
"Liam just realised he wanted a different kind of wife, one who was more traditional and reserved, and his family really helped him take the step in divorce. He’s happier, but he does miss Miley. The divorce really divided some of their close friends."
Thankfully, Miley has also moved on from all the drama, proving her relationship with Cody Simpson is the real deal as they continue to go from strength to strength. And while a source says the “Slide Away” singer, 27, and The Masked Singer star, 23, have been “good for each other” since they began dating in October 2019, they're taking things at a steady pace.
"They both understand each other’s lifestyles and the traveling that comes along with each of their jobs. They aren’t putting any hard restrictions on their relationship and are just having fun and seeing where it goes,” a source told Us Weekly. “Cody isn’t a jealous person and is pretty relaxed and laid back, which works for both of them.”
