Liam’s behavior since he broke up with Miley could be considered very hurtful, when he was photographed kissing Eiza Gonzalez on Sept. 17 — just one day after he called it quits on his engagement to her. Read on for a relationship expert’s take on the situation — and why he’s retaliating against Miley!
Liam Hemsworth: He’s ‘Obviously Hurting’
We asked relationship expert and TODAY’s 30 Second Therapist Dr. Gilda Carle about what Liam is trying to convey — and what Miley’s actions have been saying all along. Dr. Gilda says that Liam’s behavior post-breakup with Miley indicates that he’s trying to intentionally hurt her.
“He’s so obvious about his kissing, he is intentionally hurting her. When they try to have makeups and breakups in the public view, you wonder about the depth about what’s going on in their relationship. It should not involve the public,” said Dr. Gilda. “Even though he seems really generous — keep that $250 million ring! — he’s obviously hurting and wants to retaliate with that photo. Love has no room for retaliation.”
Liam’s kissing picture would appear extremely hurtful to his ex-fiancee so quickly after their breakup — and what did Miley do to spur his feelings?
“They have known each other for years, these two. You see old pictures of the two of them together, and she was a sweet girl and all of a sudden, fame really went to her head — and he watched this metamorphosis right in front of his eyes,” Dr. Gilda explained. “He saw a peeling of the onion and he didn’t like what he saw inside.”
The two seem to have very different personalities in the public eye, and it’s easy to see how things fell apart. What was the initial reason Liam was hurt by Miley?
Liam Hemsworth’s Feelings Post-Breakup: He Feels Like ‘A Real Fool’
“I think there was distancing going on for quite some time — they were never together! She was left on her own to let loose and obviously she has one thing in mind — to a make a public image by putting her image out there more and more and more to get all this attention,” she told us. “No man wants his woman thinking her main goal is to get attention, rather than to have love with him.”
There’s obviously hurt on both sides of the relationship stemming from different factors — so it’s confusing to see whether Liam is enjoying that he’s a single man, or he’s truly stinging from all the hurt.
“Now that they’re split — he can do what he want. However, (the making out) doesn’t demean HER — it demeans her. Two seconds after they break up formally, he’s out there sucking face of someone else. It makes him feel like a real fool,” said Dr. Gilda.
Sounds like a lose-lose situation to us. We hope Liam and Miley can keep things amicable and keep on going with their exploding careers.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? If you were Liam, would you be happy that you’re single or still hurt from all the pain?
