Speaking on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast this week, the 27-year-old star said the split “f*****g sucked”, explaining that she felt that she was villainised in the press after it became public.
“What really sucked about it wasn't the fact that me and someone that I loved realised that we don't love each other the way that we used to anymore,' the 27-year-old explained.
“That’s okay, I can accept that. I can't accept the villainising, and just all those stories”, she added.
Cyrus, who has gone on to date blogger Kaitlynn Carter and singer Cody Simpson since her divorce, went on to explain how she felt it was portrayed that she doesn’t have a gap between dating different partners.
“It's amazing to me the public thinks that there's no gap of time that they didn't see that could possibly be what led to this.
“It's not: “One day you were happy on the carpet and the next day you were making out with your friend in Italy, what the f**k?” There's a lot of time in between that you didn't see”, the singer told Rogan.
The “Wrecking Ball” star also discussed being truly single for the first time in five years over a year after filing for divorce.
Explaining what she looks for in a romantic partner Cyrus said: “I don't need a man or a woman that's gonna take care of me, I can take care of me. I need them to be able to take care of them.”
Cyrus and Hemsworth tied the knot in December 2019 and split eight months later. The couple met on the set of their film The Last Song in 2008.
