Miley Cyrus’ engagement to Liam Hemsworth ended in 2013, but it taught her a thing or two about future relationships — including her most recent one with Patrick Schwarzenegger. Find out what she learned, and what she’s never doing again, below!
Miley Cyrus, 22, and Patrick Schwarzenegger, 21, have called it quits after just five months of dating — and nearly one month after he allegedly cheated on her. But things don’t look great for Patrick. Miley is simply not going to stand for anyone who takes her for granted like ex Liam Hemsworth, 25.
Miley Cyrus & Patrick Schwarzenegger: Liam Hemsworth Taught Her Not To Be Taken For Granted
Miley is thinking much further into the future than just a simple break with Patrick says a source who spoke EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. She’s ready to break free and live life on her own terms again — something she learned about all too well while during her four-year relationship with Liam.
“She’s done,” our source said. “She’s not wasting her time on anyone who doesn’t fully appreciate her. She learned this with Liam and she’s not putting up with anyone who’s not equally committed.”
Though Miley said she was in love with Liam during their relationship, it ultimately failed because she didn’t feel like she could be herself. And for someone as free-spirited and fun-loving as Miley, that’s clearly not going to work! Now she’s dealing with more of the same in her crumbling relationship with Patrick, who isn’t always a fan of some of her wild behavior.
“Miley felt that Patrick didn’t really appreciate her and so she ended things with him,” our source said. He’s fun and cute but too immature relationship wise. She has plenty of friends she can hang out with. Overall she’s just disappointed because she really did like Patrick.”
Let’s not forget that Patrick was also allegedly caught cheating on Miley over spring break with ex-girlfriend Taylor Burns. Patrick was spotted getting a little too comfy with Taylor, and the whole thing was captured on camera. Miley didn’t answer his calls for weeks after the incident — let’s see if she does ever again.
Despite the fact that Patrick was flirting up a storm with hordes of girls over spring break, he’s still got a few jealousy issues when it comes to Miley. Specifically, he can’t stand her close relationship with her musical mentor, Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne, 54, and “is very envious that she and Wayne share so many common interests,” according to a source who spoke to HollywoodLife.com.
Though there’s nothing romantic between Miley and Wayne, she idolizes the rocker, and it apparently makes Patrick feel inferior. True, she’s probably never made Patrick a necklace out of one of her pulled teeth before! Maybe these two crazy kids will work it out some day.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Miley is better off without Patrick?
