According to a new report, there are tears behind the tongue.
An insider says that Miley Cyrus - who just announced her Bangerz tour dates - feels terrible about how things ended with her former fiance Liam Hemsworth.
As a result, she's gone out of her way to tell the Catching Fire star as much. She actually penned her longtime love a letter, lamenting the breakup.
Or at least the circumstances that led to the much-publicized split.
"Miley admitted to Liam she has pushed him away and said sorry for acting so mad,” a source tells Great Britain's The Sun of her alleged mea culpa.
”Miley says in her letter she still loves Liam deeply and has asked him to meet up," the insider adds. "It could be for closure or it could be to start again."
Either way, "she just wants to see him and talk things through.”
It's unclear when this letter was allegedly written, but the photographic evidence is NOT unclear: Cyrus made out with Benji Madden last week. Hard.
Just how sorry can she truly be in light of recent events?
THE WAY THEY WERE: Miley and Liam in happier, tamer times.
Hemsworth has also been spotted getting close with Mexican actress Eiza Gonzalez, so we can't imagine a reconciliation is actually in the works.
But if Miley simply realized the error of her ways? And felt bad?
And took the step to acknowledge that she may have made a few mistakes over the past year and at least leave things on decent terms with Liam?
Hey, that's a sign of maturity, and it's one we applaud.
Liam, for his part, appeared on The Tonight Show this week as part of the Catching Fire media blitz. If Miley was on his mind at all, he did not show it.
