Miley Cyrus, 26, reportedly begged Liam Hemsworth, 29, to go for marriage counselling with her to save their marriage but he refused.
The couple split after 10 years together on and off and 8 months of marriage.
The breakup of their marriage was announced over the weekend and, shortly after, Miley was seen kissing Brody Jenner's ex-wife Kaitlynn Carter during a girls' trip to Lake Como. This made people blame Miley for the breakup of the short union.
But sources close to the couple have told TMZ it was actually Miley who fought to save their marriage. Insiders said they had been struggling with various issues for months, and that Miley pushed for them to go to therapy together in a bid to make their marriage work.
But the source said: "He didn't come close to meeting her half way."
Liam, 29, is currently in Australia with his older brother Chris Hemsworth. When Daily Mail Australia ran into him, he was reportedly looking downcast and said to them, "You don't understand what it's like."
