Miley Cyrus is reportedly putting her rumoured ex-fiancé Liam Hemsworth through "hell right now".
The 20-year-old singer-and-actress and the 23-year-old Australian actor got engaged in June of last year.
Speculation is rife the pair have broken up in recent weeks.
Apparently Hemsworth is not happy with Cyrus's new look and her partying lifestyle. Cyrus is said to be infuriated by accusations that Hemsworth kissed Mad Men actress January Jones and she has been seen without her engagement ring in public.
According to sources, Cyrus is not walking away silently and the contention in their relationship is fierce as ever.
"They'll probably end up together, but Miley is just giving him hell right now and trying to publicly humiliate him," an insider told Radar Online.
"They were always arguing about the company she kept and her actions with alcohol and stuff, and it made him especially uncomfortable when he was not home to supervise. Plus, Miley isn't looking so fierce these days and Liam hasn't really been feeling her 'look.'
"The second Miley caught wind of Liam being unfaithful she took that as an opportunity to rip into him because he made her feel guilty all the time about her behaviour. But she never cheated on him."
Hemsworth is currently in his native Australia spending time with his brother Chris and other family.
Although the star may be suffering from the alleged split, his professional milieu is thought to be celebrating.
"Liam's PR firm has been trying to break them up for years. They think she is bad news for his image. He could be such a bigger star if he weren't tied down to her," the source explained.
"He's getting a lot of work but all the outlets ever want to talk about is Miley and it's really frustrating for him."
Apparently Cyrus is not at all comfortable with the thought of letting Hemsworth go for good.
"If Miley has her way, the breakup won't last because she's head over heels for Liam and ultimately doesn't want to lose him," the insider said.
"But now that Liam is taking some time away from her, he might come to the realisation that she's not the best fit for him. And that terrifies Miley."
Cyrus and Hemsworth met while shooting movie The Last Song together in 2009. They had an on/off relationship during 2010, before working out their differences and getting engaged
