With one airport photo in January, Miley Cyrus kicked off re-engagement rumors by wearing the ring former fiancé Liam Hemsworth gave her before they broke up in 2013—notably afterjust hanging out and "cuddling and kissing" him in Australia. In the weeks since, Miley's kept the ring on, with People and Us Weekly confirming the engagement via sources. Neither Miley or Liam commented on their relationship status…until March 31.
Liam, during an interview with Australia's TV Week that day, offered a definitive answer: "I am not engaged, no," he said. He hasn't been out because of an injury: "I just didn't leave my home for the last few months because I had a back injury; I really couldn't do much."
The paparazzi attention he attracts "is what it is," he said. "I am not someone who is looking for any more attention than I have and I try not to draw attention in any way...so most of the time I fly under the radar...but I did have a helicopter flying over my house for a while."
Since the interview, Miley and Liam have been spotted out on two public dates: a vegan lunch last week and a movie premiere Monday.
