How would your family react to pictures of your wife reportedly making out with another woman shortly after you separated? Well, Liam Hemsworth's family's reported reaction to Miley Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter's reported make-out session in Italy was not great. On Aug. 28, a source told Us Weekly that the photos may have swayed Hemsworth and his family toward filing for divorce.
“He thought they could work it out, but all those pictures of her and Kaitlynn ended that,” the source explained to Us Weekly on Aug. 28. “Liam comes from a very conservative family and his family was freaked out by it.”
The source also told Us Weekly that Hemsworth and his family were troubled by Cyrus “being so open about her relationship with Kaitlynn.”
For those of you who missed the memo on what's been going on with the now exes, let me give you a little refresher.
A rep for Cyrus announced her split from Hemsworth on Aug. 10. "Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers," the rep told People. "They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy."
That same day, Entertainment Tonight leaked pictures of Cyrus and Carter reportedly making out while on vacation together in Italy. On Aug. 22, Cyrus took to Twitter to make it clear that any reported relations with Carter took place after she and Hemsworth had split. "I can admit to a lot of things but I refuse to admit that my marriage ended because of cheating," she wrote in a series of tweets. "Liam and I have been together for a decade. I’ve said it before & it remains true, I love Liam and always will."
Cyrus' tweets came the day after after Hemsworth reportedly filed for divorce in Los Angeles on Aug. 21.
Hemsworth, himself, has remained relatively quiet about the split outside of an Aug. 12 Instagram post of a picture of the sunset that he captioned:
Hi all Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward. This is a private matter and I have not made, nor will I be making, any comments to any journalists or media outlets. Any reported quotes attributed to me are false. Peace and Love.
While Hemsworth is reportedly having a hard time with his ex moving on so publicly, Carter's ex Brody Jenner seems to be totally cool with it. So much so that, in a since deleted post, he even took to Instagram on Aug. 16 to defend his ex against any backlash she was receiving for her reported relationship with Cyrus:
I guess everyone has their own way of handling things post-breakup. Whatever happens next, hopefully everyone finds peace and happiness.
