A family insider tells HollywoodLife.com the 17-year-old starlet has been struggling with her parents’ breakup and is leaning on her BF, Liam Hemsworth, for stability
Miley Cyrus has been the pillar in her close-knit family for some time — and it’s finally starting to take its toll. An insider tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively the 17-year-old Disney star was so devastated by her parents Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus‘ pending divorce that she got back together with her ex-boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth, because she craved support and “normalcy.”
“Miley knew about the divorce awhile ago and she’s been taking it really hard. Pretty much at the same time, she broke up with Liam, Hannah Montana was ending and then her parents’ marriage was falling apart,” Miley’s friend says.
“She got super stressed out and that’s really when she started acting out more. She got back together with Liam because she wanted some normalcy and structure. Plus, her parents really like him too and so she’s trying to make it work. She’s just doing the best she can.”
Miley met and fell in love with Liam, 20, on the set of their film, The Last Song, in the summer of 2009. After dating seriously for a little more than a year, the couple parted ways for a few months — but got back together in Sept. and have been going strong since.
Do YOU think Liam can give Miley the security and support she needs during such a difficult time?
