Reports surfaced Thursday that Miley's new pad signaled a split. TMZ has learned it's the exact opposite ... she bought it as a bonus home for her and Liam.
Our sources tell us Miley's new place, which is a mere 0.2 miles away from Liam, will be her primary address with most of her stuff, including her bed. But the real reason for the purchase -- QT with Liam.
We're told Liam's 3 bedroom home has become overcrowded with guests -- Liam has a bunch of Aussie buddies who've been crashing there. Throw in Miley and her 5 dogs and things get messy.
So, to be clear ... Miley reportedly spent $2.5 mil just to get alone time with Liam. It's good to be rich.
