The fiery diss track Flowers has sent rumor mills into a frenzy for its loaded lyrics and buckets of shade the singer seems to be throwing at her ex-husband.
Despite obvious references made towards the famous actor, online sleuths are certain there is a hidden meaning in the video that alludes to an extra-marital affair.
Caught in the firing line, Liam’s Hunger Games co-star Jennifer Lawrence has been pulled into the drama.
Miley dropped the explosive footage on her ex’s birthday that shows the hitmaker strutting around Hollywood Hills in a tight-fitting gold dress that came from Saint Laurent’s autumn/winter 1991 collection.
After watching the musician don the glittering gown, eagle-eyed fans felt a sense of deja-vu when they realized they had seen something similar before.
Social media users pointed out that the dress in the video looked a lot like the gold Prabal Gurung number worn by Jennifer at The Hunger Games premiere in Los Angeles on March 12, 2012 – which she attended with Liam.
Explaining the breadcrumb, a video on TikTok connected the dots and walked viewers through the drama.
The viral clip was titled: ‘Tell us Miley! Queen of Shade’ and showed side-by-side footage of the Flowers singer in the new song’s video and the actress on the red carpet.
One user penned underneath the post: ‘For her to duplicate the “gold dress” she has receipts!! [sic]’.
While another commented: ‘I feel like Jlaw shaded Miley so much during certain interviews with Liam too, would make sense [sic]’.
‘I always felt there was somethin sneaky bout Miss Lawrence [sic],’ was a third accounts thoughts.
The award-winning artist has never publicly confronted Jennifer over cheating rumors but some fans believed she was ‘throwing shade’ at the Silver Linings Playbook star because she and Liam were thought to have had a brief romance on the set of the blockbuster Hunger Games franchise .
Metro.co.uk contacted Miley and Liam’s reps for comment.
