“They have decided this is what’s best”; Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth split

Celebrity couple Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have separated after less than a year of marriage.

A rep for the singer and Aussie actor confirmed the news in a statement to US People magazine.

“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” the statement read.


“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.”

The pair wed in December last year after a topsy-turvy romance.

They started dating in 2009 after meeting on the set of the movie The Last Song.

Hemsworth popped the question in 2012 but the couple split a year later.

They rekindled their relationship in 2015 before eventually tying the knot in an intimate ceremony at their home in Tennessee.


Cyrus was photographed without her wedding ring in a post on Instagram that she upload overnight.

“Mute me if you don’t want SPAMMED (sic)” the post read.

The break-up comes just days after a newly-ripped looking Liam was spotted working out with brother Chris.
