"I can admit to a lot of things but I refuse to admit that my marriage ended because of cheating," Cyrus said. "Liam and I have been together for a decade. I’ve said it before & it remains true, I love Liam and always will."
Hemsworth and Cyrus have been an on-again, off-again couple over the course of the last decade, but it seemed as though all their troubles were in the past when the two tied the knot last December.
But the fairy tale would be short-lived. A representative for the couple confirmed to People magazine earlier this month that the two had chosen to go their separate ways. Hemsworth officially filed for divorce on Wednesday, according to court documents obtained by the Blast.
Rumors that Cyrus had been unfaithful to Hemsworth erupted after the singer was seen kissing blogger and e-commerce entrepreneur Kaitlynn Carter in Italy right after the couple announced their split.
According to gossip site TMZ, sources on both sides of the split were blaming the other for alleged infidelity.
But amid all the rumors, Cyrus opted to circumvent the media and went straight to Twitter on Thursday.
She began her thread by stating that with the life she's chosen as a public figure, she's come to terms with the fact that fans expect her to be transparent.
"What I cannot accept is being told I’m lying to cover up a crime I haven’t committed," Cyrus said. "I have nothing to hide."
During the candid moment, Cyrus admitted some of her past mistakes; she said she has cheated in previous relationships and squandered important financial deals because of her behavior. But the star said these things happened when she was young and that she has since matured.
She added that when she and Hemsworth reconciled, she was committed to their relationship. "There are NO secrets to uncover here," she stressed.
"I’ve learned from every experience in my life. I’m not perfect, I don’t want to be, it’s boring," she said. "I’ve grown up in front of you, but the bottom line is, I HAVE GROWN UP."
Fans of the singer showered her with kindness for her revealing thread.
One fan said Cyrus deserves "ALL THE LOVE IN THE WORLD."
"The only goal in this life is to be happy, & if something is not letting you be 100% yourself, then [it] is time to move on!" another added.
And some admired the star's decision to be "brutally honest."
"Reading this thread makes me feel for Miley. Sometimes relationships just don't work out because they DON'T WORK OUT," another fan said. "Not every breakup has to be because of cheating. Sheesh..."
Near the conclusion of her Twitter thread, Cyrus said she made "a healthy decision for [herself] to leave a previous life behind" and that she is the "happiest" she's been in a while.
"You can say I am a twerking, pot smoking, foul mouthed hillbilly but I am not a liar," Cyrus said. "I am proud to say, I am simply in a different place from where I was when I was a younger."
