Watch: Miley Cyrus Reflects on Malibu Home With Liam Hemsworth

Miley Cyrus is detailing some of her most cherished memories.

The "Flowers" singer reflected on the significance of her former Malibu home, which she shared with ex Liam Hemsworth before it burned down due to the California wildfires nearly five years ago, noting how it served as the starting block to her professional development.

"The Meet Miley Cyrus record was really where I started writing my own songs as a solo artist," Miley said in an Aug. 29 TikTok. "And so I was working with a producer in Malibu that lived in a house in Ramirez Canyon, which I would've never known 15 years later I would be living in that house, which would eventually burn down."

As the 30-year-old noted, "That house had so much magic to it. It ended up really changing my life."

In November 2018, the former couple's $2.5 million four-bedroom home was lost due to the wildfires that ripped through the area. At the time, Miley—who was married to the Last Song actor from the following month until their August 2019 split—was filming a project outside of the country.

"My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family and friends stand strong," she tweeted at the time. "I am grateful for all I have left."

After the tragic loss, Miley reflected on the process of having to rebuild.

"I'll never be happy that all those memories and pictures and things that I've loved are gone," she told Vanity Fair in 2019. "But to have an experience like this—I find myself feeling more connected to being human again."
