Patrick Schwarzenegger & Miley Cyrus Split: Why They Decided To Break Up

“Miley wasn’t convinced Patrick was trying hard enough to win her heart back after the spring break scandal, so she got pissed. She wanted to prove to herself that she could have fun on her own without him. She decided a break would be best with the full intention for it to be a break only, not a breakup. Her friends are thinking this is just another test for Patrick to see what he will do. If he really wants her in his life, he will convince her to take him back and not be on a break,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

Well, that’s certainly one way to get a reaction out of someone. We just hope Miley’s plan doesn’t backfire on her.

Even though he tried his best to win Miley back through roses and romantic emails, it seems like that wasn’t enough for the “Wrecking Ball” singer. And now, she’s hoping that a break will light a fire under him.
