Miley Cyrus has stated that she "still loves" Liam Hemsworth, despite them not being a couple anymore.
The 'Nothing Breaks Like a Heart' singer and The Hunger Games actor first dated in 2009, during the filming of The Last Song. They were first engaged between 2012 and 2013, before reconciling in 2016 and being engaged for a second time between December 2018 and and August 2019.
Speaking on Howard Stern's SiriusXM show, Miley stated that the trauma over a fire that ravaged California in November 2018 was the reason they rushed into an engagement and later called time on their relationship.
"We were together since 16. Our house burned down. We had been like, engaged – I don't know if we really ever thought we were actually going to get married.
"But when we lost our house in Malibu – which if you listen to my voice pre and post-fire, they're very different so that trauma really affected my voice.
"And I was actually in South Africa, so I couldn't come home... I lost everything... I had so much and it was all gone, every song I had ever written was in that house. Every photograph of me that my parents had given to me, all my scripts, I lost everything.
"And so in trying to put that back together, instead of going, 'Oh, nature kind of did something I couldn't do for myself; it forced me to let go,' I ran toward the fire."
"I just clung to what I had left of that house, which was me and (Liam). And I really do and did love him very, very, very much and still do, always will."
Miley has since dated Australian singer Cody Simpson, but announced a few months back that their relationship had ended too.
