So It Looks Like Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth's Families Don't Think They're Ready to Get a Divorce

While we were all just minding our own business last weekend and trying to enjoy the remainder of summer, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth went ahead and dropped a bomb on everyone by announcing that they had split after less than a year of marriage.

The breakup has since gotten kind of messy with photos surfacing of Miley making out with Brody Jenner's ex-wife Kaitlynn Carter (opens in new tab) and Miley releasing a song that seemingly calls out Liam's partying (opens in new tab) (which was allegedly one of the reasons for their breakup (opens in new tab)). However, it looks like some people, other than myself, don't want to see Miley and Liam split up for good—and apparently, those people are their families.

An insider recently told E! (opens in new tab), "Their families have urged them to take some time to breathe before they make any final decisions. They are both upset about how this has blown up and are both hurting right now."

And while I'm firmly on team Liley (side note: did we ever come up with a couple name for these two?) and another source previously said that there's a chance Miley and Liam won't divorce (opens in new tab), it sure doesn't seem like they're interested in getting back together. Right after Miley's rep confirmed the split, Miley posted an Instagram saying "change is inevitable" and talking about respecting her "process." (opens in new tab)

So I guess if anything, it looks like things might still be up in the air for these two.
