It’s not always a great day when we get to hear about heartbreaks. Unfortunately, it’s one of those days. Popstar Miley Cyrus and actor Liam Hemsworth have called it quits after nine months of marriage. Liam took to Instagram to officially announce their separation with a picture of a sunset and mentioned that he still wishes the best for Miley and he will not be answering any questions about the same.

Take a look:

But speculations of trouble with their relationship had started when Miley had posted pictures of herself on Instagram without her wedding ring. Many of her fans had noticed and left comments about the same on her picture.

Check it out:

The photo was taken while Miley was on vacation with Brody Jenner‘s ex Kaitlynn Carter in Italy. Staying true to the caption of her above picture, she has been spamming her fans with pictures of her from the vacation. Meanwhile, Liam briefly spoke to Daily Mail Australia about his split. When asked about his separation while on a run to get some frozen yogurt with his elder brother Chris Hemsworth, he replied with, “You don’t understand what it’s like, I don’t want to talk about it mate.

His reply truly breaks our heart. But Miley and Liam have always had an on-again and off again kinda relationship. The duo who met in 2009 on the sets on their film The Last Song, dated for a while until Liam proposed in 2012. In 2013 they called off their engagement to reconcile in 2015. In December last year, the couple tied the knot in a private ceremony and took to Instagram to tell the world.

Take a look:

Miley’s representative also gave a statement to People about the split saying:

Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time, 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 split has come as a shock to many of us as Liam and Miley seemed to be happy and posting pictures on Instagram as recent as June. We hope both Liam and Miley get past this tough phase soon.
