Today marks day six of the complicated drama between Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth, Brody Jenner, and Kaitlynn Carter, so let’s get to it.
If you are a dedicated entertainment news junky, please skip the recap. If not, allow me to catch you up:
Brody and his "wife" Kaitlynn, of one year, announced their split two weeks ago. Then, the model headed off on a vacation (bc fake divorce is hard, ok?) with none other than Miley Cyrus.
Miley and Liam, who have been married for a short eight months, have also split.
And hours after that news broke, Miley and Kaitlynn were photographed kissing on a boat in Italy.
OK, that’s pretty much everything — along with a few stabs made here and there — but we should all be on the same page now.
To add to the already complicated and shocking news, another player has joined the game.
That’s right, Brody Jenner’s mother Linda Thompson is now involved and has something to say about her daughter-in-law’s recent actions.
And it’s getting shady, people.
Here’s how it all began:
Earlier this week, Linda posted a quote from the Dalai Lama that read, "Silence is sometimes the best answer."
In the comment section, Linda’s followers offered their support while also completely dragging Miley and Kaitlynn in the process.
But instead of ignoring them, the mom was out here "liking" these savage Instagram comments.
"I think both boys, Liam and Brody, must be hurting… the girls clearly had no regard for them by allowing their display to be made public," read one comment that she Liked.
Oh, and she also felt the need to show her support on a comment that said, "His happiness someday will be HER misery."
She also Liked a third comment that linked to a blogs article claiming that the photos were set up by Kaitlynn, just to get more followers.
And to make things even more awkward, Kaitlynn saw all of it.
Linda later posted a photo (which honestly just made things more confusing and seemed a tad hypocritical) of a second quote to Instagram.
This one read: Please don’t judge people. You don’t know what it took someone to get out of bed, look and feel presentable as possible and face the day. You never truly know the daily struggles of others."
But one comment stuck out, and yes — it was from Kaitlynn!
"EXACTLY." she fired.
When Linda saw her comment she quickly stepped down, making it clear that she didn’t mean any harm to Kaitlynn and that she will always hold a special place in her heart.
No grudges here.
Her first comment was a basic purple heart emoji. But don’t worry, the second one had more thought behind it.
"And for the record, honey, the only ‘shade’ I throw is my own shadow walking away from drama," she snarked.
Adding, "You know I love you. I always have & always will," with a couple more heart emojis.
Whether or not Kaitlynn even saw her response is unknown, but we think she is pretty unbothered because she is living things up with Miley back in LA.
According to E! News, the two are still hanging out and are bonding over their recent splits.
Neither are interested in getting serious right now, and they are "truly having fun," says a source.
Well that’s all for now! But we’re sure there will be a whole new round of drama tomorrow!
