Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have baffled fans with their off-again on-again romance. After splitting several years ago, the two seemed to be rekindling their romance recently. Miley was seen wearing the same engagement ring that she flaunted after Liam proposed the first time, and the two were spotted engaging in PDA. But then amid rumors that they were engaged again came the official statement from Hemsworth that he is not engaged.
“I am not engaged, no,” said Liam firmly.
Miley was still flaunting the same 3.5 carat engagement ring that Liam gave her prior to their breakup in 2013. Adding to the signs that the two are reunited, Cyrus spent time with Hemsworth’s sister-in-law, Elsa Pataky.
“[Miley and Liam] are back together and very happy,” a source revealed to People.
Cyrus apparently has become close with Elsa because they went together to a tattoo parlor in Sydney, Australia, to get matching tattoos, according to the Mirror.
The “custom wave” thrilled the artist Lauren Winzer, who posted photos on Instagram.
“Stoked to do these little matching custom waves @kellyslater drew up for @mileycyrus @kalanimiller @elsapatakyconfidential @aprilmun,” wrote the tattoo artist.
Miley reportedly purchased a $2.5 million Malibu mansion after they reunited, and a source cited by the Mirror explained the significance.
“The plan is for Liam to stay there while they reconnect, and then move in permanently when he’s ready. They know what they have is real. Miley needed some time to grow up, but she feels ready for this now.”
Hemsworth initially proposed to Cyrus in June, 2012, but then they ended that phase of their relationship in September, 2013.
But although Cyrus is allegedly planning a summer wedding, an option to an elaborate ceremony reportedly exists. Amid the speculation is the possibility that Miley and Hemsworth will head to Las Vegas for a secret ceremony away from the paparazzi.
With all those signs that the lovebirds have rekindled their romance, why did Hemsworth deny that he is engaged to Cyrus? Liam changed his mind, claims an insider cited by Hollywood Life.
“Just as Miley and Liam were starting to plan their wedding, he had a change of heart,” revealed the insider. “He still wants to be with Miley but isn’t sure about a lifelong commitment.”
And that comment from Hemsworth that he is “not engaged” caused Cyrus to go “ballistic,” added the source. Miley raged at Liam when she learned what he had said. And Cyrus found it particularly embarrassing because she’s been sporting her engagement ring.
“She went ballistic. She accused him of humiliating her.”
But despite that anger, Cyrus hasn’t stopped yearning to wed Hemsworth. And that’s why she’s still wearing that enormous diamond engagement ring.
“She still desperately wants to marry Liam,” explained the insider. “She’s going to keep wearing the ring as a sign of her commitment to him.”
During their separation, Cyrus recognized that he’s unique in appreciating her.
“While they were apart, she realized even more what she had with him. He just gets her and knows the real Miley, and she appreciates that,” revealed the source.
As for how Miley maintains her calm amid the confusing relationship she’s maintaining with Liam? Cyrus shared that her secret is yoga, noted E News.
Cyrus has been regularly posting her yoga poses on social media. In one caption, Miley explained that beginning her day with a yoga-powered workout energizes her body and soothes her mind.
“Starting da day right,” shared Cyrus. “Gotta do yoga not for my body but for my mind! DO YOGA or GO CRAZY!”
