Liam Hemsworth is reportedly beyond embarrassed by Miley Cyrus' recent theatrics, but insiders say this does not necessarily mean they're breaking up.
It's been widely speculated that the actor was none too pleased by Miley Cyrus Twerking on the VMA stage or getting buck naked in her new video.
That speculation, insiders say, is very much on point.
"He is embarrassed," a source tells E! News of the 23-year-old actor's reaction. "He is normally extremely laid back but her performance shocked him."
"He had no idea she was going to go that far."
Apparently, neither did her camp - at the VMAs at least. The Miley Cyrus "Wrecking Ball" video took it to a new level, sure, but it wasn't on live TV.
"She was caught up in the moment. That's Miley," a source said, revealing that there wasn't as much tongue, twerking and foam finger action in rehearsal.
"People need to understand she was just having fun," the insider said, noting that this issue doesn't mean the engaged duo is on the rocks, either.
While acknowledging "tension" between the twosome recently, the insider says reports that Liam wants a clean break from her may be exaggerated.
Ditto reports that he is pining for (or putting it to) January Jones.
"They go through these phases and things usually work out," the source explains, and you do have to give the couple credit for this basic point:
They've been together for years and are engaged. Maybe they'll split and maybe they won't, but this isn't a fly-by-night relationship they take lightly.
What do you think: Should Liam end things with Miley?
