Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth squashed rumors about their troubled relationship after they were spotted together for the first time since rekindling their romance. Since several months rumors surfaced that Cyrus and Hemsworth were back together after the "Wrecking Ball" singer was seen wearing the same ring that Hemsworth gave her during their engagement in 2012.
Cyrus and Hemsworth were pictured spending time in Los Angeles Friday as a sign of confirmation that the two are dating, according to Entertainment Tonight (ET Online). Cyrus had a lunch date with Hemsworth and his family as she still rocked the ring given to her by "The Hunger Games" star. According to ET Online, the two dined at Gracias Madre, an all-vegan, organic Mexican restaurant in West Hollywood, California. Hemsworth's brothers, Chris and Luke, and Luke's wife, Samantha, were also present.
The 23-year-old singer appeared "happy and relaxed" as they were photographed leaving the eatery, a source told ET Online. The tabloid also posted several photos of the two together.
Cyrus and Hemsworth's lunch date comes amid rumors that the two were on the verge of a split over the former's addiction.
On Wednesday, InTouch Weekly reported that Cyrus was concerned that Hemsworth will “dump her at the altar.” A friend of Cyrus told the magazine that Hemsworth might take the decision of splitting with Cyrus “because of the massive influence his family has over him.”
“Him dumping her would put her into a very dark place mentally, emotionally and physically,” Cyrus’ friend reportedly said. “She will fall apart — and it will be ugly. She won’t be able to handle it.”
Amid tensions between the two over Cyrus’ addiction, the couple’s relationship also reportedly got strained after she sent Hemsworth a sext meant for her former rumored girlfriend Victoria's Secret model Stella Maxwell.
