Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have announced they have separated. The news comes less than a year after they tied the knot. Insiders say those close to the couple aren't shocked by the split. Miley was recently caught kissing Brody Jenner's ex Kaitlyn Carter.
“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” a rep for Cyrus tells PEOPLE in a statement. “Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.”
Rumors of a split between Cyrus, 26, and Hemsworth, 29, began on Saturday, after the “Mother’s Daughter” singer posted a photo of herself on Instagram in which she was not wearing her wedding ring.
