Nooooooo! Another tween couple bites the dust. Adolescents with Twitter accounts have been hyperventilating all over their keyboards since news broke that Miley Cyrus has reportedly activated the termination clause in fiancé Liam Hemsworth‘s contract.
But it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. Things have been iffy since the youngest Hemsworth of the Fine-as-all-Hell Hemsworths of Australia was spotted getting a microscopic particle of emotion out of January Jones during a recent night out on the town. And as this person can tell you, that is no easy feat.
“They went to a private house party, and right in the middle of the party, January was clinging to Liam, saying, ‘You’re so handsome,’” a guest told Life & Style. “He kept saying, ‘We can’t do this here.’ Then they left holding hands and went out in the hallway and were making out. She was wasted. It wasn’t good.”
Yeah, not too bright, Liam. It’s not like the good old days where you could make out with anyone and it wouldn’t immediately end up all over the universe.
Leave it to the Hollywood spin doctors to make their imminent split about something as hollow and transparent as “work schedules,” though.
“’Liam and Miley are done,’ says a source to Us Weekly, who adds that Liam, 23, is having major second thoughts about their wedding because of Miley’s new workload.
“’Miley put her career on hold to spend all her time with Liam. Now that she is back recording her fourth album, he’s not happy. She says she’s already over it,’ continues the source, who says that ‘work has put a stress on their relationship.’” [Us Weekly via Cele|bitchy.]
So it could be that Liam was trying to send a message to Miley by letting her know he was fully capable of melting January if he damn well felt like it. Or maybe they’ve been over for a while and he was simply trawling for a little frozen rebound action.
Whatever the reason, Liam’s lack of discretion – unusual in someone who’s grown up in the Hollywood tabloid machine – certainly indicated that he doesn’t care who knows.
But the fact that they’re trying to spin this as Liam being some kind of control-monster who wanted his little (billionaire) lady to stay home and let the man earn a living sounds more than a little suspect to me.
His star may be rising thanks to the Hunger Games, but Miley’s in a different stratosphere and it would be ridiculous for Liam – or anyone – to think that at 20 she’d be willing to pack it all in for a dude.
Nice try, Cyrus publicity machine, but try harder.
