Photographs of Miley Cyrus and a moving truck at Liam Hemsworth’s house, coupled with photos of her wearing what appeared to be her old engagement ring, have reignited speculation that the longtime on-again off-again couple are together once more.
TMZ.com Monday ran several photos of Cyrus, 23, and two friends appearing to be unloading small bags from a U-Haul truck at what it said was Hemsworth’s home in Malibu, California. The website also ran images of “Hunger Games” star Hemsworth without specifying a time or locale. The two appeared in no photo together.
Cyrus herself, however, posted three Instagram photos Monday dressed comically in colorful outfits — one image an evidently photo-manipulated variation of another — with each showing an apparent engagement ring on her left hand. That jewelry, Us Weekly noted Monday, appeared to be the same as or highly similar to the 3.5-carat circular diamond ring custom-designed by Neil Lane, which Hemsworth, 26, gave Cyrus when he proposed on May 31, 2012.
The ring also appears in a news photo of Cyrus arriving at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Sunday.
Rumors of a reconciliation became widespread early this month after the Sydney, Australia, newspaper The Daily Telegraph said Cyrus and Hemsworth were seen behaving affectionately at the Falls Music Festival at Byron Bay on Jan. 3. The paper also published fans’ Instagram photos of the two there, as well as a grainy shot of Cyrus at what it said was the Hemsworths’ New Year’s Eve party. Cyrus skipped a planned appearance in Los Angeles on Jan. 5 in order to remain in Australia.
Cyrus and Hemsworth began a romance after meeting on the set of their coming-of-age romantic drama “The Last Song” in 2009. They broke up and reunited at least twice before becoming engaged in 2012, and called off the engagement in September the following year.
