When Miley Cyrus dug deeper into her disturbing memory lane

Going deeper into the backstory, Miley Cyrus revealed in the Howard Stern show in 2020 that their decision to get married might not have happened if it weren't for a devastating event—the loss of their Malibu home in the Woolsey fire in 2018. This traumatic experience played an important role in their decision to marry, rather than it being a deeply-rooted desire to become Hemsworth's wife over being engaged. Their history, dating back to when they were just 16, was intertwined with this traumatic event, which had a profound impact on Cyrus's voice and her life as a whole.

Reportedly, Cyrus vividly recounted the heartbreak of being in South Africa at the time, unable to return home, and finding her beloved animals tied to a post on the beach. She revealed, "I had so much and it was all gone, every song I had ever written was in that house, every photograph of me that my parents had given to me, all my scripts, I lost everything.

As per the reports, in her response to the loss, Cyrus admitted to a natural human response, running towards the fire metaphorically. Instead of letting go and allowing nature to take its course, she clung to what remained of her home, which was her relationship with Liam Hemsworth. She stated, “And so in trying to put that back together, instead of going, 'Oh, nature kind of did something I couldn’t do for myself; it forced me to let go,' I ran toward the fire. Which is not abnormal, a lot of animals do this and end up dying, like deers run into the forest. You’re attracted to that heat and me being an intense person and not wanting to sit with it, and not wanting to go, you know, 'What could be purposeful about this?' I just clung to what I had left of that house, which was me and him.

As per multiple sources, she confessed to her intense personality and aversion to confronting the pain head-on, emphasizing that she still deeply loved Hemsworth. She reportedly confessed,  “And I really do and did love him very, very, very much and still do, always will."
