Miley Cyrus' MTV VMAs' performance has reportedly added strain to her on-and-off relationship with Liam Hemsworth as a new report claims the actor was so embarrassed by his fiancé's lewd dancing that he will likely call of their engagement.
The former Disney star, 20, took to the stage at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Sunday to perform her hit song "We Can't Stop" and while Hemsworth, 23, was not present for the disastrous performance, sources claim the Australian actor was "mortified" after hearing criticisms about her overtly sexualized routine. Cyrus danced provocatively with married singer Robin Thicke and subsequently Hemsworth is said to be done with the relationship.
"Liam really does care about Miley, but her racy new look and sort of ghetto attitude isn't exactly what he signed up for," an alleged friend of Hemsworth told RadarOnline.com.
"Her VMA performance absolutely mortified him and he couldn't be more embarrassed. He doesn't really see anything sexy about what she did on stage," the source explained.
Over the past year Cyrus has made headlines for questionable reasons including her substantial weight loss; drastic haircuts; getting her 10th tattoo and wrist cutting suspicion. Sources claim that her erratic behavior is only pushing the "Hunger Games" star away.
"It's not just Liam that Miley is pushing away…his entire team is urging him to part ways with her because she's nothing but negative for his reputation and career. Liam is a serious actor with a growing career, while Miley has just turned into a joke," the source said.
"It's pretty much over. He knows he can't stay with her when this is who she's become," the source explained. "He doesn't want to babysit her anymore. He has to move on."
In February Cyrus, who got engaged to Hemsworth in 2012 after three years of dating, abruptly stopped wearing her engagement ring after reports of an affair between the actor and actress January Jones began swirling.
Hemsworth never addressed the rumors and while Cyrus was initially concerned about the nature of the reports, she eventually began wearing her ring again in March.
"Miley is super independent, which Liam loves about her, but at the same time she's an insecure girl who's terrified of losing him and will do whatever it takes to make their relationship work," a source previously told Radar.
"This just goes to show Miley's immaturity and lack of relationship experience," the source continued. "She's the one who's dying to make it work with Liam, when he's the one who strayed from their relationship!"
