When Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth announced their engagement, it came as a surprise to almost everyone. People speculated almost immediately the relationship would fall apart before it even got started.

Many skeptics pointed to their young age as a reason why the pair should slow things down – but then there was also Miley’s dramatic behavior.  Aside from rumors that she had been drinking and getting high, she also drastically changed her appearance, cutting off her signature long brown locks in favor of a short, platinum blond punky look.  She said she was finally just being herself which, of course, is entirely possible.  It’s also possible that she’s going through some sort of post-Disney identity crisis.  Either way, it might be a good idea for her to spend time gaining confidence in who she is rather than rushing into a long-term commitment.

Despite all of her interviews where she gushes over her “hot” fiancé, Miley has been spotted without her engagement ring and there has been talk that their relationship is over.

If any of the new reports are true, Liam’s brothers (including Thor star, Chris Hemsworth) would be thrilled if the young couple called it quits. Apparently, Chris and their other brother, Luke, staged an intervention of sorts last month in an effort to help Liam “end the romance for good.”

It’s tough because Liam and Miley have been together for more than three years now and, although they’ve broken up a few times, they seem to genuinely care for each other but, as is the case with some couples, it may not be the healthiest relationship.

In fact, there was speculation that Liam cheated on his fiancé with Mad Men star, January Jones, at a pre-Oscar party this past February but by early March, Miley tweeted: “I am so sick of La. And sick of the lies that come with it. I didn’t call off my wedding. Taking a break from social media. #draining.”

Since then, the pair have been dogged by rumors that the wedding is off and that the majority of their problems stem from Miley’s “insecurities” and “partying ways.”  Adding fuel to the fire, Miley’s dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, spoke to ABC News last month and said that he wasn’t sure if a wedding was still in the works.

Hopefully, they sort things out so that they can enjoy their lives and careers.  Miley is working on a new album and Liam will next appear in Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
