According to RadarOnline.com, Liam was reportedly mortified and embarrassed by his lady's raunchy act...even though he wasn't there!
"Liam really does care about Miley, but her racy new look and sort of ghetto attitude isn't exactly what he signed up for," an insider told Radar.
"Her VMA performance absolutely mortified him and he couldn't be more embarrassed. He doesn't really see anything sexy about what she did on stage."
Uhh, who did?! We totally don't blame him for being embarrassed! Maybe that's why they're never seen together anymore?
"It's not just Liam that Miley is pushing away...his entire team is urging him to part ways with her because she's nothing but negative for his reputation and career," the same source added.
"Liam is a serious actor with a growing career, while Miley has just turned into a joke...It's pretty much over. He knows he can't stay with her when this is who she's become."
Miley's other loved ones, her parents, don't feel the same way Liam does. Click here to find out what they thought of Miley's VMA performance!
