One of this week's tabloids claims Miley Cyrus is hooking up with ex-girlfriend Stella Maxwell again and Liam Hemsworth is on board with it. There's no truth to the story. Gossip Cop can debunk it.
A so-called "source" tells the National Enquirer, "Miley's still attracted to Stella. They had a very special friendship. She misses Stella - and she can't help herself!" The alleged insider goes on to say that Hemsworth has no issue with the arrangement, adding, "Liam's softened his stance about a lot of things lately - especially Miley's flirty and loose behavior, so it makes a lot of sense."
The suspicious tipster further contends that Cyrus and Hemsworth are "writing their own rules when it comes to marriage," which is why the singer is free to see other people. "They know what works for them and they don't really care what anyone else thinks," adds the seemingly phony source.
Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the couple, who wasn't able to speak on the record, but tells us the tabloid's report is fabricated. The singer isn't hooking up with her ex-girlfriend, who she hasn't been spotted with in quite some time. Our trusted insider assures us the magazine's article is a work of fiction.
It's worth noting, Gossip Cop debunked a similar premise earlier this month. We called out NW for falsely claiming Cyrus and Hemsworth had an "open marriage" and are free to "hook up with other people from time to time." It's simply not the case, despite this storyline being recycled.
Meanwhile, the Enquirer has already proven to have zero insight into the couple's relationship. Last year, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for wrongly reporting that Cyrus and Hemsworth had split over the singer's "return to her wild ways." A few months after we debunked the story, the couple got married.
It's also worth noting, the tabloids have a habit of making up stories about a celebrity couple agreeing to see other people. Last year, Gossip Cop called out the Enquirer's sister outlet, Star, for wrongly alleging that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have an "open marriage." We also recently shot down a report claiming Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez were discussing having an open marriage.
For whatever reason, the gossip media seems to be fixated on this narrative. Gossip Cop, however, can confirm that Cyrus and Hemsworth are in a committed relationship and aren't hooking up with other people, especially not exes.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
