The pair may have split back in 2013, but 2016 has brought in a whole new wave of relationship rumors for Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus. After several sightings, potential clothes swapping, and partying together, we're starting to get the feeling not even a wrecking ball could tear these two apart.
Are Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus hooking up on the sly? Consider the evidence:
Exhibit A. You're the onesie
Around Halloween last year Miley posted the above shot to her Instagram account. Most of us didn't bat an eyelid because a picture of the 23-year-old dressed as a Ninja Turtle isn't exactly out of character; this is a girl who dresses as a pot smoking Cinderella, after all. Beady eyed fans, however, spotted something we missed.
Over a year ago, Liam wore the same pajamas for the ALS Ice Bucket challenge! Mere coincidence? Or has Miley refashioned Liam's (a.k.a. her secret boyfriend's) comfy onesie?
Exhibit B. (Rescue) Puppy Love
Just weeks after that onesie got us all pondering, they teamed up in person to help Liam pick up the perfect pooch over at Wylder's Holistic Pet Rescue in L.A. On finding the right, adorable (and absolutely massive) creature, the center posted an Instagram shot of him with his new pal, captioned with direct thanks to Miley.
Now, correct me if I'm wrong and, I know these two have a weirdly solid relationship considering they're no longer together (?) but choosing pets is a pretty intimate activity. Then again, Miley it seems is a regular down at Wylder's Pet Rescue, so maybe she's just showing a pal the ropes. But...
Exhibit C. Up in Arms
Come January 2016, hopeful shippers get a boost of confidence when the pair were pictured together, reunited to party at Byron Bay Falls music festival. Although the above image isn't clear as to whether Liam has his arm around Miley, a gesture which wouldn't be out of place should the pair be just friends, it's certainly added fuel to the rumor fire.
Which of course was further aided by sources Down Under who whispered to 'The Gold Coast Bulletin':
"They were absolutely back on — they were hugging and kissing, it was full on. There was a lot of affection."
Exhibit D. Berry Suspicious
The Internet went into a frenzy when Miley posted the above snap earlier this week, and it wasn't because of the, 'I look like a fucking strawberry,' caption. No, it was because of the ring placed on her engagement finger. Namely, its familiarity...
If the multiple sources currently speculating are be to believed, this ring is the same ring Liam gave to her back in 2012. And, well, when you look at them together it's hard to argue the contrary.
According to US Weekly the pair are currently in 'a passionate phase of reconnecting,' so it looks like we'll have to wait a while to know for sure whether they 'are' or 'aren't.'
Just tell us for Peeta's sake!
