Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are over. Just weeks after their separation went public, Liam filed for divorce.
Of the many rumors, one of the most persistent is that they broke up because Miley cheated. She says that's just not true.
Speaking out, Miley admits to a number of scandals and mistakes, but insists that she never cheated on her husband.
On Thursday afternoon, Miley Cyrus posted a heartfelt Twitter thread to clear the air about why she and Liam split.
"I can accept that the life I’ve chosen means I must live completely open and transparent," Miley begins.
She notes that she remains open "with my fans who I love, and the public, 100% of the time."
"What I cannot accept," Miley continues. "Is being told I’m lying to cover up a crime I haven’t committed."
"I have nothing to hide," she declares.
"It is no secret that I was into partying in my teens and early 20s," Miley acknowledges.
About 11 years ago, a huge part of the entertainment news industry revolved around covering Miley's first forays into being "wild."
"I have not only smoked," she says of marijuana. "But advocated for weed."
"I’ve experimented with drugs," Miley confesses.
In fact, she notes that "my biggest song to date is about dancing on molly and snorting lines in the bathroom."
"I f--ked up and cheated in relationships when I was young," Miley admits.
She adds: "I lost a massive Walmart deal at 17 for ripping a bong."
"I got kicked off hotel Transylvania for buying Liam a penis cake for his birthday and licking it," Miley points out.
This is such an illuminating thread. Interesting to see these events, a couple of which were unfair, laid out in order.
"I swung on a wrecking ball naked," she adds.
Miley assesses: "There are probably more nudes of me on the internet than maybe any woman in history."
That is ... almost certainly not even close to true. Maybe among former Disney stars?
"But the truth is," Miley continues. "Once Liam & I reconciled,I meant it, & I was committed."
"There are NO secrets to uncover here," she insists.
Miley shares that "I’ve learned from every experience in my life."
"I’m not perfect," she admits. "I don’t want to be, it’s boring."
"I’ve grown up in front of you," Miley points out. "But the bottom line is, I HAVE GROWN UP."
"I can admit to a lot of things," Miley assures her fans and followers.
"But," she writes. "I refuse to admit that my marriage ended because of cheating."
"Liam and I have been together for a decade," she acknowledges.
"I’ve said it before & it remains true," Miley emphasizes. "I love Liam and always will."
It's just that they are no longer married.
"BUT at this point I had to make a healthy decision for myself," Miley explains. "To leave a previous life behind."
"I am the healthiest and happiest I have been in a long time," she announces.
"You can say I am a twerking, pot smoking , foul mouthed hillbilly," Miley permits. "But I am not a liar."
"I am proud to say," Miley concludes. "I am simply in a different place from where i was when I was a younger."
Honestly? That is pretty believable.
It does not really explain why she and the hunky Hemsworth have parted ways, but I'm willing to believe that it wasn't because of her cheating.
