Miley Cyrus has revealed that she “didn't spend too much time crying” after her split from former husband Liam Hemsworth.
The US singer, 27, and the Hunger Games actor went their separate ways in August last year after eight months of marriage.
But Cyrus has now said she didn’t shed too many years over their break up – or other traumatic events over the last couple of years – but that it was because she knew she couldn’t change it, not that she was cold.
According to E News, the Wrecking Ball singer opened up on Scandinavian talk show Skavlan, saying: “I've gone through a lot of kind of trauma and loss in the last couple years. I had a house fire in Malibu, where I lost my house and went through a divorce recently, my grandma who I was super close with, I lost."
"In a way, I didn't spend too much time crying over it, and it wasn't because I was cold or trying to avoid feeling something, but it was just because it wasn't going to change it,” she added.
“I tried to just continue to be active in what I can control, otherwise you just start feeling like you're trapped."
Cyrus and Liam had dated on and off for around a decade after meeting on the set of the film The Last Song.
The former Hannah Montana star has previously spoken about the “traumatising” time she went through after they split.
She recently told the Call Her Daddy podcast: “At first when I got out of my long-time relationship and it didn’t work, that was really traumatising.
“Now I’m in a place where I just look at it and love it and respect it.”
