The couple had been together for 10 years and were known synonymously as "Bennifer #2."

According to a source close to the breakup, Elsa Pataky, wife of Liam's big bro Chris Hemsworth, was NOT a fan of the Miley and urged Liam to break it off!
But Mileybird's former future sister-in-law didn't so much use a Wrecking Ball on their relationship so much as an iceberg! The source says:
"She spent the last year freezing Miley out in some kind of passive-agressive move."
"Elsa is totally against Miley and Liam getting back together. Miley desperately wants to get back with Liam and believes she can because she’s done it before. But to do that, she’s going to have to win over Elsa!"
If Miley did get close to Liam again, she apparently would be braving an awfully cold climate!
