Liam Hemsworth has stuck by his fiancee Miley Cyrus through her drastic image change and her transformation from Hannah Montana to raunchy chart-topper but was the singer's headline (and crotch) grabbing VMAs performance on Sunday one step too far for loyal Liam?
On Sunday, Miley took to the VMAs stage in Brooklyn to perform a medley of her single 'We Can't Stop' and Robin's hit 'Blurred Lines,' but she left many in the audience with open mouths when she stripped off to a barely-there bikini and shook her derriere into Robin Thicke's crotch while touching herself with a large foam finger.
Now an insider has claimed to Radar Online that Miley's Hunger Games beau Liam has been left bemused and embarrassed by his fiancee's latest risque display, which goes against his own clean cut career plans:
“Liam really does care about Miley, but her racy new look and sort of ghetto attitude isn’t exactly what he signed up for,” a pal tells Radar. “Her VMA performance absolutely mortified him and he couldn’t be more embarrassed. He doesn’t really see anything sexy about what she did on stage.”
Liam, who has been dating Miley since 2009, wasn't at the VMAs but he surely can't have escaped the press attention the performance has received over the past few days.
The inside source goes on to claim that Liam is being urged to break things off from Miley once and for all:
“It’s not just Liam that Miley is pushing away…his entire team is urging him to part ways with her because she’s nothing but negative for his reputation and career,” the source alleges.
“Liam is a serious actor with a growing career, while Miley has just turned into a joke.”
"It’s pretty much over. He knows he can’t stay with her when this is who she’s become,” the source concluded. “He doesn’t want to babysit her anymore. He has to move on.”
Miley and Liam's relationship has been surrounded by speculation for a while now, but recent reports suggest that despite the pair "fighting" a lot, Miley is still very much "in love" with her hubby-to-be.

“She’s totally in love with Liam,” a source told Hollywoodlife earlier this month. As for the wedding, the source says it’s definitely what Miley still wants, but their relationship seems "more volatile" than others simply because they are allegedly so different from each other.
“They say opposites attract and that’s true but it can also work against them,” the source says. “Miley is so much more open and out there with everything and Liam is pretty reserved and that’s something they fight about a lot.”
But, the insider adds that the couple still compromise, which is a sign that they’re still in love and willing to work to stay together, adding: “Miley even quit [Twitter] for a while because it was causing so many fights. But she couldn’t stay off so she ended up promising him that she would never post about their personal life and she’s been pretty good about that.”
