Miley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger have split, not just temporarily but permanently, say sources close to the famous couple. But don’t look for public tantrums or social media mania because the breakup is friendly, reported People.
“It’s not a break,” confirmed an insider who knows both Miley and Patrick. “It’s done.”
So, what caused those reports of an engagement, marriage, and even baby bumps to go sour? Blame it on their divergent interests, added the source.
“They’re just in two different places in their lives – he’s in college and she’s focused on her music and career.”
But it’s more than career versus college that has caused consternation in their relationship, according to Us Weekly. After Miley and Patrick dated for five months, the 21-year-old college student indulged in a wild’n’crazy time of freedom in Mexico, where he went for his spring break from USC.
When Miley saw the photos of Patrick and a pal getting cozy in Cabo, the “Wrecking Ball” singer felt wrecked, said a source.
“The scandal did its damage,” confirmed that insider. “They both saw sides of each other they weren’t pleased with but they were trying to make it work.”
So, although they communicate, they aren’t committed to a long-term relationship, added that source.
Adding to their separation, Patrick partied at Coachella, while Miley focused on her highly praised performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2015 ceremony.
As the Inquisitr reported, Miley Cyrus inducted Joan Jett into the Hall Of Fame. Wearing pasties and dishing on smoking pot with Joan, Miley described Jett as one of her musical idols.
“She’s what Superwoman really should be. The first to do many things, not just as a woman, but as a bada** babe on the planet,” declared Cyrus.
But did Patrick’s mother Maria Shriver also contribute to the breakup? The ex-wife of Arnold Schwarzenegger reportedly wasn’t on board with the romance, but then became reconciled to it and even had dinner with Patrick and Miley, according to the Daily Mail.
Cyrus even tried to appease Maria by dressing down in little black dresses, as opposed to her more revealing attire tendencies. But now it appears that the Patrick party is over.
It also impacted their relationship when rumors that Miley Cyrus was pregnant with Patrick’s baby escalated, as the Inquisitr reported. She became so frustrated with the false baby bump reports that she created a parody showing herself “pregnant” with a food bump of pizza.
