Miley Cyrus: "I'm Four Months Sober"

The pop star took to Instagram live with her big news.

Miley Cyrus

Despite the end of her long time on-again, off-again relationship with husband Liam Hemsworth, singer Miley Cyrus is sober and “radiating.”

“I’m four months sober. It’s the best I’ve ever felt. I’m radiating,” the “Wrecking Ball” singer shared on Instagram live on Sunday (Oct. 20).

A Marriage Ends

Cyrus and Hemsworth separated in August, and soon after, Hemsworth filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences.”

According to TMZ, Miley “tried valiantly to save the marriage” but could not reconcile the fact that “Liam was drinking a lot and using certain drugs, and she wanted no part of it, especially since she struggled with substance abuse in the past.”

However, Hemsworth’s side denies this narrative, instead accusing Miley of covering up the fact that it was her infidelity that ended the marriage.

Miley, who rose to fame as the Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana, gained a reputation for partying hard, with hits like “We Can’t Stop.”

We Can’t Stop” was released in 2013 and attracted speculation that she was singing about partying with Molly (MDMA) and cocaine. But she’s calmed down since then, she says.

Brief Stint Of Sobriety In 2017

Cyrus said she was “evolving” in a 2017 interview with Billboard. “I haven’t smoked weed in three weeks, which is the longest I’ve ever [gone without it.] I’m not doing drugs, I’m not drinking, I’m completely clean right now! That was just something that I wanted to do,” she said at the time.

But her mom Tish Cyrus got her smoking again. “My mom got me back on it,” Miley said last year. Still, her relationship with weed has some clear boundaries. “When I’m just working, I don’t think I function at my highest, most intelligent, most being-able-to-be-as-aware-and-as-present, so I don’t smoke when I work,” she told The Sun last December.

A New Relationship

Fans are now buzzing about Miley’s new relationship with Australian singer and long-time friend Cody Simpson. The two appear to be on the same page in regard to partying—they’d rather wake up early for yoga, according to HollywoodLife “sources.” 

“We both met back in the day when we were partying a lot and had a lot of fun then, but now we found each other in a space where we’re not partying, working real hard, and it just keeps things healthy,” Cody told HollywoodLife at a recent event.
