Miley Cyrus has been inconsolable since her much-loved dog Floyd died on Tuesday night (April 1), while she was away on tour. “I don’t wanna say it because I don’t want it to be real… But my precious baby Floyd has passed away,” she tweeted to fans, before admitting: “I am broken.” The “Wrecking Ball” diva then tweeted pics of her beloved pet and asked concertgoers for their understanding. “I’m sorry in advance if I am not myself tomorrow Boston. I will try my best to be my best.”
As it turns out, the 21-year-old did a good job of putting on a brave face and even dedicated her cover of Fleetwood Mac‘s “Landslide” to her lost pup. However, Miley lost her nerve when it came to the part of the show where a giant inflatable likeness of Floyd appears on stage. She stopped singing and broke down sobbing. Her younger sister Noah Cyrus eventually helped the superstar off stage. See the emotional moment after the jump.
