Miley Cyrus has been alleged by a gossip magazine to have trapped Liam Hemsworth into staying with her by wrongly thinking she was pregnant.
Reps for both Cyrus and Hemsworth have shot down the story, which claims that the 'Wrecking Ball' star wanted to go public with her news, but was persuaded against it by her Hunger Games beau.
The couple confirmed their split last week, but OK! magazine's "insider" suggests that Liam actually wanted to throw in the towel as early as April.

"Miley thought she was expcting and wanted to announce it to the world, even before she went to a doctor to verify the results," the incorrect source said.
"Liam begged her not to go public yet. He was emotionally out of the romance for months by that point, though he was still sleeping with her."
The mag also says that Miley "threatened" Liam by telling him that she'd claim he "abandoned" her if h went through with the break-up, however Cyrus' rep has told Gossip Cop that there is "absolutely no truth" to anything in the report.
They add that it's a "complete fabrication", while Hemsworth's spokesperson has also said that there was never a pregnancy scare.
Liam has already been seen smooching Mexican star Eiza Gonzales since the split went public. Miley, meanwhile, has been linked to Mike WiLL Made-It, but is thought to just be focussing on her career for the time being.
