TooFab went back to the beginning of Miley and Liam's romance -- this one's got a LOT of twists and turns.

Liam Hemsworth has filed for divorce from Miley Cyrus.

Just a couple of weeks after news broke that the "Hunger Games" star, 29, and the singer, 26, had split following less than a year of marriage, Liam officially pulled the plug on their relationship, according to TMZ Wednesday.

The actor filed for divorce in Los Angeles, citing "irreconcilable differences."

While this looks to be the end of one of the most plot twist riddled Hollywood romances, it was certainly a wild ride. Here's a full timeline of their relationship -- from the beginning.


The couple met while filming the Nicholas Sparks film "The Last Song" and began dating.


In early 2012, Miley denied she and Liam were engaged. However, a few months later in June, the couple confirmed their engagement to People. At this time, Miley was 19 and Hemsworth was 22. The Australian actor proposed with a 3.5-carat Neil Lane diamond ring.

"I'm so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam," Miley told People of her engagement.


2013, also known as the year of Miley's "Bangerz" phase. Rumors began circulating of a possible split between Miley and Liam after they postponed their wedding. As the breakup reports continued, the couple later confirmed they had ended their engagement.


Miley and Liam officially reunited and the relationship was back on. Miley was seen wearing her old wedding ring. Although they didn't confirm they were back on, Liam alluded to the reconciliation when speaking to GQ at the time.

"Of course it was hard, man. But at the time we were going in different directions, and it's just what needed to happen," he told the magazine. "We were both super young, and it was a good decision at the time -- we both needed that."

"People will figure it out; they already have," he added. "They're not dumb."


Everything was well! Miley dedicated her song "Malibu" to Liam, and the two seemed happy together.

Miley expressed to Elle for their August 2019 cover story that she doesn't "fit into a stereotypical wife role" and that she's still "very sexually attracted to women."

"I think it's very confusing to people that I'm married. But my relationship is unique," she said.

"I don't know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it's so complex, and modern, and new that I don't think we’re in a place where people would get it," Miley added. "I mean, do people really think that I'm at home in a f--king apron cooking dinner? I'm in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women."
