Miley Cyrus confessed that she lost her virginity to her ex-husband, Liam Hemsworth, when she was just 16 years old, and she lied about it for 10 years.
On the latest episode of the Call Her Daddy podcast from Barstool Sports, hosted by Alexandra Cooper, the 27-year-old musician said that she didn't lose her virginity to Nick Jonas, but she married the person that she did first have sex with.
"I was 16," she said. "But I ended up marrying the guy, so that's pretty crazy."
Liam and Miley were married in 2018 and were divorced less than a year later. They first got engaged in 2012 after they met on the set of the 2009 Nicholas Sparks romance film, The Last Song. The couple called it quits, but later reunited in 2015 before tying the knot.
She explained that when she first slept with Liam, she lied and told him that he wasn't her first in order to save face. She thought admitting that she was a virgin to him would make her seem like a "loser."
"He said, 'Oh, who have you had sex with,' and I couldn't think of anyone, so I just made somebody up that I knew but we had never actually had sex before," she said.
She never told him the truth until much later, when the lie ended up catching up with her after the person she named married someone Liam knew.
"[Liam's] friend ended up marrying him and then it was like, 'Oh now my friend is marrying someone you've hooked up with?'" she said. "So then when I was like 24 I had to say that I lied when I was 16. It was a lie that I held onto for, like, 10 years."
After the couple called it quits for good, Miley famously moved on with reality star Kaitlynn Carter and later singer Cody Simpson. It was recently reported that Cody and Miley have called it quits on their relationship, though neither has confirmed the news or given a reason for the breakup.
Miley explained in the podcast that she has noticed a pattern in her relationships. She often complains that people are boring, only to find later that she needs the sort of person who will act like an anchor for her.
The singer also confessed on the podcast that her first sexual encounter was with two girls, whom she confirmed she went past first base with, as The Inquisitr previously reported.
