Miley Cyrus Says There's a Lot 'That You Didn’t See' From Liam Hemsworth Divorce

'I can’t accept the villainizing and just all those stories'

September 3, 2020

Miley Cyrus was the latest highly influential guest to join comedian Joe Rogan on the JRE Podcast and, among a myriad of other topics like her unique voice, her start in music, drugs, and her dad's love of bubble baths -- she also opened up about her split from ex-husband Liam Hemsworth.

The very public divorce "f****** sucked," Cyrus said pointedly.

The couple were married in December 2018 and Hemsworth filed for divorce just months later in August 2019, citing irreconcilable differences. A rep for Cyrus explained that the couple were simply “changing as partners.”

"What really sucked about it wasn’t the fact that me and someone that I loved realized that we don’t love each other the way that we used to anymore," she admitted. "That’s okay, I can accept that. I can’t accept the villainizing and just all those stories."

The stories she refers to are the rumors about their split highlighted by Cyrus' follow-up relationship with blogger Kaitlynn Carter. "There was a lot of time between that you didn’t see," she says.

Miley also discussed her current health, past drug use, and her journey getting completely sober after her recovery from vocal cord surgery back in November of 2019. "I kind of learned a lot about the voice and how our experiences affect our voice,” she told Rogan.

Likening our voices to a face, Cyrus feels "it collects wrinkles and it tells a story" just the same. "Over the last year I noticed a really big change to my voice, kind of a heaviness to it," she explained. "And I experienced some heavy things. I feel like it is a reflection. It is a kind of scar in a sense. But also kind of having the surgery was a gift because I was able to understand my instrument."

"I don't smoke anymore, and I'm sober. I've been sober. Pretty much the vocal surgery kind of did it for me because I just learned so much about the effects,” she says about getting clean. “You're just taught it's not really the drinking, it's the staying up all night. Once you have your drink, you end up smoking."
