We can't even begin to keep up with these on-again, off-again rumors surrounding Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth. Back in January People reported that Cyrus and Hemsworth had rekindled their relationship after breaking off their engagement in 2013. But we've yet to hear anything of their relationship status from either Hemsworth or Cyrus. Sure, Cyrus has been photographed together and with Hemsworth's family, but as with most news in the entertainment industry, things can change at the drop of a hat.

However, Hemsworth may have finally given us the confirmation we've been waiting for. When asked about he and Cyrus's current state of affairs, he told GQ Australia, “People will figure it out, they already have... They’re not dumb.” Considering many media outlets are saying the two are back together, that sounds like as close to a declaration in the affirmative as we're going to get from this typically secretive fella. Hemsworth also revealed that their time apart was necessary for the both of them saying, 

"Of course it was hard... But at the time we were going in different directions and it’s just what needed to happen. We were both super young and it was a good decision at the time – we both needed that.”
