Miley Cyrus recently lost her dog Floyd, and she has been fairly silent about the particulars behind the death. She has been on Twitter posting about how horrible her life is, and how awful she feels. She also has broken down crying during some recent concert events. The tragedy has really hit her quite hard. She even Tweeted, “I am broken. I know I don’t mean it, but I wish he would’ve taken me with him,” referring to her lost dog. It was a bit of a shocking statement, to say the least.
The singer is currently on her “Bangerz” tour. US Weekly reported that she is having great difficulty getting through performances. Floyd was an Alaskan Klee Kai, and Miley had owned him since 2011.
Until this point, most assumed that Floyd had died through some sort of natural causes. The real facts behind the story have begun to emerge, however. One of Miley’s backup dancers posted some photos on Instagram, and the backup dancer also revealed the cause of death in one of the photo comments: a coyote attack. The strange way in which the information came to be known has many asking whether or not the famous Disney singer wanted to cover up the truth. So far, Miley Cyrus herself has been silent about the facts concerning the death of her beloved dog. The apparent secrecy behind the death has left many fans wondering whether negligence might have been involved.
This is not the first dog that the singer has lost under strange circumstances. She also lost a dog named Lila. Lila got in some sort of fight with another one of the singer’s dogs, Ziggy. Lila suffered mortal wounds and did not survive. The former Disney star also kept this incident secret, but her mother, Tish, later revealed it to the press.
The news of Floyd’s death comes just after recent allegations that the pop singer smokes too much marijuana. Wiz Khalifa told Arsenio Hall that Miley smokes “a ton” of weed. When asked what “a ton” meant, Wiz responded, “exactly? I don’t know. She’s younger so it’s different. Every five minutes she kept being like, Wiz, you don’t have a joint rolled?” Wiz’ comments left her fans a bit startled about the young star’s alleged drug habits.
Cyrus clearly loves her drugs, though. She told Rolling Stone, “One time I smoked a joint with peyote in it, and I saw a wolf howling at the moon.” The former teen idol likes smoking weed so much that she even named one of her dogs “Mary Jane.” Mary Jane has been helping her through these rough times.
Even with all the heartache, the singer has been able to get through most of her raunchy performance pieces during the Bangerz tour. Everything was where it should have been, even the sexual poses and leg spreading.
It remains to be seen whether or not she herself will come clean about how the dog died. For now, many fans are making up their own minds. Miley Cyrus will most likely remain silent about the death of her dog Floyd. The older Lila incident and this one both involve a strange attack, which could simply be a coincidence.
