We all know Miley Cyrus is grabbing headlines for the wrong reasons but are these actions of a rebellious young adult or a hidden cry for professional help?
First her sexually suggestive twerking performance at the MTV video music award show in August, then the video for her latest single Wrecking Ball, in which she swings naked on a demolition ball and licks a sledgehammer in a suggestive manner.
Adding fuel to the fire was the public row with pop veteran Sinead O’Connor when she called Miley the latest onetime child star heading for a fall. Buckling under the constant criticism and post-breakup with fiance and actor Liam Hemsworth, close friends of the former Hannah Montana star feel that she may be heading towards a breakdown.
Cyrus & Hemsworth
Cyrus and Hemsworth got engaged in May 2012. Her latest album Bangerz is a reflection of her relationship with Hemsworth, whom she began dating in 2009. By 2013, Miley and Liam were growing apart and the couple appeared together less and less frequently in public, and new rumors of a break up came out daily.
So it didn’t surprise many people when Miley and Liam announced their high profiled split. Now fresh stories claim that the that the “Wrecking Ball” singer has turned to drugs and alcohol, indulging in destructive behaviour like nonstop partying and random hookups in an attempt to cope with the split.
Though, the 20-year-old has defended herself by saying she is merely growing up and the publicity will certainly do no harm to sales of her records, friends are worried. “She’s been acting erratically and has a screw-it attitude. Everyone is worried now that Liam is gone. She’s a mess without him”, says a friend close to the star.
Liam’s moved on
Liam, on the other hand, seems to have moved on. The hunky actor is reportedly dating his ex-girlfriend Eiza Gonzalez. There has been gossip of the couple partying down, way into the wee hours of the night.
“She doesn’t have many real friends and is constantly messed up. She never wants to go home, never wants to be alone and doesn’t want the party to end. The way Miley has been acting is a cry for help,” a source said.
Miley hooking up with sexy guys
Since her split, Miley Cyrus has been linked to several sexy guys including the rapper-actor Romeo Miller a.k.a. Lil Romeo. Reports that the duo has been hooking up got confirmed after the latter posted a flirty photo of the two on Oct. 29.
But Romeo isn’t the only rumored love interest of single Miley. In addition to her reported fling with Theo Wenner, Miley was also spotted making out with Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden at a wild Halloween party.
“She`s always looking for male attention. It`s uncomfortable to be around. She`s partying to mask her true feelings. And she`s really unhealthy – she barely eats… If she continues acting out at this rate, she could be headed straight for rehab. It`s sad,” the source said.
