For a bit of back story, Miley and Liam were together for around a decade. After years of dating the pair were first engaged from May 2012 to September 2013, but then split for three years (which btw shook us to our core). The two rekindled their romance in 2016, eventually renewing their engagement and marrying. However, the union lasted less than a year, with the couple announcing their separation in August 2019.

"We were together since 16," Cyrus said of her and Hemsworth. "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, and like, my animals were tied to a post at the beach. I lost everything.”

"I had so much and it was all gone, every song I had ever written was in that house," she continued. "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.” Cyrus said she "clung to what I had left of that house, which was me and him.” Sharing, “I really do and did love him very, very, very much and still do, always will," she shared.

Miley attributes “too much conflict" as what ultimately led the two to break up. "When I come home, I want to be anchored by someone," she explained. "I don’t get off on drama or fighting.”

Miley also went on to talk about how its been almost a decade since Hannah Montana ended, reflecting on the pressures she faced as a Disney Channel star. As well as her latest endeavors, including her latest single and music video “Prisoner,” with Dua Lipa, about which Stern had a few naughty things to say.
