Why did Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth break up?

In court documents obtained by E! News, Liam cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason behind their split.

Miley has opened up about the reasons behind their break-up since, revealing in an interview a month before their divorce was finalised in 2020 that they may not have ever gotten married if their Malibu home hadn’t burned down in the Woolsey fire in 2018.

The ‘Wrecking Ball’ songstress said: “We were together since 16. Our house burned down. We had been like, engaged—I don't know if we really ever thought we were actually going to get married, but when we lost our house in Malibu—which if you listen to my voice pre- and post-fire, they’re very different so that trauma really affected my voice.

“And I was actually in South Africa, so I couldn’t come home, and like, my animals were tied to a post at the beach. I lost everything.”

She later went on to say in the same chat that “there was too much conflict” in their relationship which led to their eventual split.
