Insiders close to the Hunger Games star have revealed that Hemsworth was aware that the relationship was “crumbling” but say he was determined to save his marriage to Miley Cyrus.

It has been 37 sad days since the official announcement of Liam & Miley’s split. Reps for Miley released a statement on August 10:

“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.”

Contradicting the soft, calm and seemingly amicable breakup outlined in the statement, an insider has told Page Six that Liam was “blindsided” by the statement as he was in Australia at the time and Miley hadn’t communicated with him that she’d be going public with the news.

Insiders close to the Hunger Games star have revealed that Hemsworth was aware that the relationship was “crumbling” but say he was determined to save his marriage to Miley Cyrus.

Miley uploaded a lengthy Instagram post outlining her perspective on her personal growth and the decision to separate.

A source previously told PEOPLE “Everyone always thinks Miley is problematic and immature and a hardcore partier while he’s this chill surfer dude, but that’s actually [not accurate],”. “Liam parties with his friends, and Miley thinks he should’ve grown out of that by now.”

The source adds that the actor’s alleged drug use became a “deal breaker” for Miley as she was trying to steer clear from substances after her history of drug abuse.

This Hollywood breakup is quite messy and even after a month of separation, new details from both camps emerge. I guess we will have to stay tuned as the story unfolds…
