Miley Cyrus‘ newest album, Endless Summer Vacation, has fans thinking that some of the lyrics contain cheating allegations against her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth.

Cyrus, 30, and Hemsworth, 33, first met on the set of The Last Song in 2009. They married in 2018 and split in 2019.

“Muddy Feet”

Cyrus’ new song “Muddy Feet” includes the line “And you smell like perfume that I didn’t purchase.” Fans were quick to link it to Hemsworth. 

“And you smell like perfume that I didn’t purchase/Now I know why you’ve been closing the curtains/Get the f— out of my house,” she sings. “I don’t know who the hell you think you’re messin’ with/Get the f— out of my house with that s—/Get the f— out of my life with that.”

The chorus sings about her ex-partner “coming ‘round with your muddy feet,” and that she’s to “have to do some[thing] ‘bout it.”

“Muddy Feet,” doesn’t contain a direct reference to Hemsworth, but fans have been buzzing on social media with speculation.


The first single off the new album, “Flowers,” also sparked curiosity with fans. The single contains references to things her ex-husband did for her that she can now do herself.

“I can buy myself flowers / Write my name in the sand / Talk to myself for hours / Say things you don’t understand / I can take myself dancing / And I can hold my own hand / Yeah, I can love me better than you can,” Cyrus sings on the tune’s chorus.

Fans began drawing a correlation to Bruno Mars’ hit song “When I Was Your Man” and think at some point Hemsworth dedicated the song to his wife. There hasn’t been a confirmation of that, but the lyrics are similar.

“I should’ve bought you flowers / And held your hand / Should’ve gave you all my hours / When I had the chance / Take you to every party / ‘Cause all you wanted to do was dance / Now my baby’s dancing / But she’s dancing with another man.”

The song also includes a line about building a home and watching it burn. The couple’s home in Malibu burnt down in late 2018.

Rumors began swirling when Cyrus announced the release date, Jan. 13, which happened to be Hemsworth’s birthday. A week later, Spotify announced the song became the most-streamed song in a single week.


“Jaded” is the second track on the album and the ballad recalls missed opportunities in a relationship that didn’t work. Almost like she regrets not speaking up when she had the chance.

“Now I’ve had time to think it over / We’re much older and the bone’s too big to bury.”
