Perhaps the odds are in their favor! Miley Cyrus, who recently broke up with her boyfriend of five months, Patrick Schwarzenegger, is getting close again to ex-fiancé Liam Hemsworth, sources reveal in the new issue of Us Weekly.

“They’ve been hanging out in L.A., but only a few people know,” a source close to the Hunger Games actor, 25, who slipped a 3.5-carat Neil Lane sparkler on Cyrus’ finger in 2012, tells Us. “Dating could definitely happen.”

Credit 22-year-old Cyrus’ can’t-stop, won’t-stop persistence. Following their September 2013 split, “Liam cut her off, but she would still text him,” adds a second source. “He eventually started answering. They would check in on each other here and there.”

Still, the Australian hunk is proceeding with caution. After all, a Cyrus romance takes twerk. “Liam has rough stories about that relationship,” says the Hemsworth insider. “But he always talks about how fun she was to hang out with and their great chemistry.”

As Us previously reported, the “Wrecking Ball” singer called it quits with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son after the college junior was caught flirting and doing body shots off of another girl in Mexico March 15.

“At first, she was into him because she thought he was a nice guy,” an insider explained at the time. “But the Mexico scandal completely changed how she felt.”
