Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus in happier times

As has been long expected, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have officially — and finally — called off their engagement. As reported on my blog Monday, Cyrus’ “unfollowing” on Twitter of the Aussie actor was likely the final nail in the the coffin of the dead relationship. Multiple sources close to both the former “Hannah Montana” star and the “Hunger Games” actor have repeatedly reported the duo have gone their own ways some time ago.

With the exception of the two working the red carpet for Hemsworth’s “Paranoia” release in August, the couple were rarely seen together. In fact, that “Paranoia” event was the first professional event the two had attended together in more than a year.

A longtime friend of Cyrus told me Monday, “Miley just realized that Liam is not ready to be a one-woman man, and may never be that kind of guy. … His roving eye and lack of true commitment was just too much to overcome.”

Along those lines there are multiple reports Hemsworth already has moved on. The Australian hunk was spotted at a Las Vegas nightclub Sunday night — joined by beautiful Mexican actress Eiza Gonzalez.

†Hemsworth and Cyrus met while filming “The Last Song,” back in 2009 and started a romance that led to the actor proposing in 2012, after taking a short break in August, 2010.

Since then, it has seemed the couple has been on an emotional rollercoaster — with regular reports of angry spats and separations.

Reportedly, both of the stars’ families were not enamored of the engagement. Miley’s father, Billy Ray Cyrus, was said to be not convinced Hemsworth was the right guy for his little girl.

Turns out he appeared to be right all along.
