Miley Cyrus is opening up about the moment she knew her marriage to Liam Hemsworth was over.

The singer, who was in an on-and-off relationship with her The Last Song co-star for a decade, said the decision occurred when she performed at Glastonbury in June 2019.

“Me and Liam’s commitment to being married just really came from ― of course ― a place of love first because we’d been together for 10 years,” Miley explained in her ongoing TikTok series, which she is using to promote her latest single Used To Be Young.

She said their commitment came “from a place of trauma and just trying to rebuild as quickly as we could”.

“The day of the show was the day that I had decided that it was no longer going to work in my life to be in that relationship,” Miley said.

“So that was another moment where the work, the performance, the character came first. And I guess that’s why it’s now so important to me for that to not be the case — that the human comes first.”

Miley and Liam first began dating in 2009. The two got engaged for the first time in 2012 when she was just 19 and he was 22. Then, they split in 2013 before eventually rekindling things in 2016.

The couple announced they were engaged for a second time later that year, and tied the knot in December 2018. By August 2019, the two had split for good.

“Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers,” a rep for the couple told People magazine at the time.

Miley has opened up about the two’s divorce before, telling Joe Rogan in 2020 about the part that “sucked” the most about her “very public divorce”.

“It wasn’t the fact that me and someone that I loved realised that we don’t love each other the way that we used to anymore. That’s OK, I can accept that,” she said.

“I can’t accept the villainising and just all those stories,” the singer explained.

“It’s amazing that the public kind of thinks there’s no gap of time they didn’t see that could possibly be what led to this.”
