Miley Cyrus got candid about the end of her eight-month marriage to Liam Hemsworth after being together for over 10 years, revealing that she had the revelation at the 2019 Glastonbury music festival.

The end of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s marriage came as a surprise to many fans, but not to Miley herself.

The “Flowers” singer recently shared when she knew that her marriage with the Hunger Games star had reached its end, eight months after they tied the knot and more than a decade together.

“I have to slow down because this is actually serious,” Miley said in her “Used To Be Young” TikTok series on September 5. “So Glastonbury was in June, which was when the decision had been made that me and Liam’s commitment to be married just really came from a place of love first because we’ve been together for 10 years but also from a place of trauma and just trying to rebuild as quickly as we could.”

Miley, who performed at the music festival on June 30, 2019, went on to explain, “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.”

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

After a decade-long on-again/off-again relationship with Liam, whom she met on the set of their 2009 movie The Last Song, the pair wed in December 2018. However, just months later, Liam filed for divorce in August 2019, with the divorce finalized in January 2020.

But even though it didn’t last, Miley previously noted she doesn’t regret their marriage.

“I wouldn’t erase my story or want it to be erased,” she told British Vogue in May. “Having an interesting life makes for interesting storytelling.”

These days, Miley and Liam have each found love again, with Miley dating musician Maxx Morando since late 2021. A source told E! last October that “their relationship is very serious.”

Meanwhile, Liam has kept his romances out of the spotlight since his split from the Grammy winner, but has since moved on with model Gabriella Brooks.

After going Instagram official in 2021, an insider told E! News that Liam’s family “very much approves and likes having her around. They are happy for Liam that he has found someone that brings out the best in him.”

Remembering the Fireworks Despite the split, Miley acknowledged the spark they felt while filming the 2010 movie The Last Song.

“I think one of the elements that made that movie feel so special,” she shared on TikTok in September 2023, “was it was watching two very young people fall in love with each other, which was happening in real time and real life.”

Miley added, “So the chemistry was undeniable, and that was the beginning of a long, 10-year relationship.”

Knowing It Was Over Miley revealed in September 2023 that she knew their marriage was over at the 2019 Glastonbury music festival.

She said in a TikTok video, “So Glastonbury was in June, which was when the decision had been made that me and Liam’s commitment to be married just really came from—a place of love first, because we’ve been together for 10 years—but also from a place of trauma and just trying to rebuild as quickly as we could.”

Miley added, “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.”

A Series of Firsts Miley has noted the irony of critics who think she’s too out there and provocative when the reality is that she married her first love (and first other stuff) after a very long engagement.

“I didn’t go all the way with a dude…I was 16,” she said on an August 2020 episode of Barstool Sports’ Call Your Daddy podcast, reflecting on her first hookup. “I ended up marrying the guy, so that’s pretty crazy.”

Asked to confirm that the guy she married was the first guy she hooked up with, Miley admitted, “Yeah, which I lied and said that he wasn’t the first, so I didn’t seem like a loser.”

Marriage as Life Preserver After years of proving they were in no rush to get married, Miley and Liam surprised everyone by actually saying “I do” on Dec. 23, 2018, about six weeks after their Malibu home burned down amid a surge of wildfires in Southern California.

The fire “removed me from what no longer was serving its purpose,” Miley reflected to Rolling Stone. “And then as you drown, you reach for that lifesaver and you want to save yourself. I think that’s really what, ultimately, getting married was for me. One last attempt to save myself.”

Similarly, she told Howard Stern in a December 2020 interview about how she went from losing a houseful of possessions to gaining a husband, “Me being an intense person and not wanting to sit with it and not wanting to go, you know, ‘What could be purposeful about this?’ I just clung to what I had left of that house, which was me and him. And I really do and did love him very, very, very much and still do, always will.”
