It was the performance that put her on the map.
But for Robin Thicke, Miley Cyrus’ twerking antics at the VMAs were a source of annoyance.
According to Us weekly, the ‘Blurred Lines’ singer is harbouring resentment toward the 'Wrecking Ball' songstress as he feels it made her career what it is today.
A source told the mag: “Robin is jealous Miley's career took off after that. He thinks she hijacked the performance.”
The bad blood between the two began after Robin, 36, came under fire for performing in such a sexually explicit way with Miley who was 20 at the time.
However, in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Robin dismissed these claims stating that the blame was ‘on her’ – something Miley did not take kindly to.
“Miley thinks Robin threw her under the bus,” a source claimed.
The two even ignored each other at Clive Davis' pre-grammy party despite only being sat a few tables apart.

Robin previously admitted that his VMA performance with Miley did help to let people know who he was.
He said to Vanity Fair: “They told me [beforehand] that Miley's going to take her clothes off and dance around and she might bend over.
“Everybody knows who I am now because I let Miley Cyrus twerk in front of me on the MTV awards.
“I spent my whole career playing it safe, being a gentleman, never doing anything controversial.”
Perhaps he shouldn’t be complaining then.
