While Miley Cyrus is walking around without her engagement ring and partying with mystery men, her fiancé has reportedly been spending some time in Australia to create some distance between them in the wake of all the rumored tension between them.

A source tells PEOPLE:

Miley is still upset with Liam… She took the ring off to make him mad. It doesn’t mean that they have split. Miley says they are still together.”

However, there is still some bad news. The insider continues:

Liam did fly home [to Australia on March 1] so they could have a break.”

The couple’s troubles became known to the public after Liam was photographed in the back seat of a car with actress January Jones, which sparked rumors that he had been cheating on Miley. But while it’s unclear whether this really was the cause of all their relationship problems, the source reveals that there have been other issues between the two:

Miley is crazy about Liam, but sometimes doesn’t treat him great… She likes things her way and tends to play games. Liam is also a strong person and that’s why they often butt heads.”
