The actor was approached by a Daily Mail Australia reporter who asked him the recent reports, to which Liam replied, "'You don't understand what it's like. I don't want to talk about it, mate." However, a source close to the 29-year-old told Entertainment Tonight how he's really feeling about seeing Miley's PDA with another woman.
"Liam loves Miley and is hurt, but he knows that she does this," the source said. "Miley and Liam very recently separated. Miley's behaviour is no shock to Liam. He is hurt but not surprised. The last several months they've been talking about taking a break. Liam's been frustrated with some of her antics and, in turn, Miley claims she 'needs her space.' This seems to be a pattern in their relationship."
Despite all of the drama, there's still hope for a reconciliation. "Miley and Liam love each other and always will," the source said. "Most of their friends feel they'll be back together. No one thinks Miley and Kaitlynn are in a real relationship, they believe it's more fun on vacation."
The update comes as TMZ reports that Miley tried for months to make her marriage work and that Liam "didn't come close to meeting her halfway."
