If you don't know, now you know — Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have confirmed their split after speculations circling Cyrus' recent Instagram post, where she was pictured without her wedding ring. The photo was said to be taken while Cyrus was on holiday in Italy with Kaitlynn Carter, Brody Jenner's ex-wife.\nThe picture on Instagram seems innocent enough, with Cyrus wearing an all black outfit that was accessorized with overlapping jewellery. However, eagle-eyed fans and gossipers were quick to notice that the most important accessory of them all was missing. Cyrus had captioned the post with, "Mute me if you don’t want SPAMMED."\nView this post on Instagram Mute me if you don’t want SPAMMED A post shared by Miley Cyrus (@mileycyrus) on Aug 10, 2019 at 7:03am PDT\nFollowing these rumours, Cyrus' rep released a statement to People, saying, "Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time ... 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."\nThings are quiet over on Hemsworth's side of the story, but Cyrus' Instagram photo and her rep's statement has said more than enough.\nIt's been one heck of an experience for those who have been riding the Cyrus & Hemsworth roller coaster of emotions. The couple had been on-and-off-again before finally getting their marriage license in December 2018.\nSo, you can imagine people's reactions to the news of their break up. Most of the couple's fans were heartbroken themselves over the annoucement.\nYou know I was so happy when Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus overcame everything to finally end up together AND YOU TELLING ME THEY DIVORCE 6 MONTHS LATER? pic.twitter.com/4LpNoEMb5Z— Sara (@SaraCave3) August 11, 2019\nRight when I was starting to believe in love again you’re telling me Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus are divorcing the mf audacity I FEEL ROBBED OF MY FEELINGS. pic.twitter.com/Fm01LgttI4— naomi (@naomirosi_) August 11, 2019\nMe when I found out Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus broke up pic.twitter.com/BKLjAsTVgj— milka (@imilkacontreras) August 11, 2019\nmiley cyrus and liam hemsworth broke up.,,...... is love even real ????!:! alexa play when i look at you by miley cyrus. pic.twitter.com/HPIZFdOdZX— violaceous (@_iisayah) August 11, 2019\nSomeone predicted what Hemsworth will look like in a future without Cyrus.\nLiam hemsworth In a few years pic.twitter.com/4UItwUJwo9— Alt (@yeeeee43288150) August 11, 2019\nliam hemsworth and miley cyrus splitting up means that thor and hannah montana aren’t related anymore— ariana (fan acc) (@capsheroes) August 11, 2019\nOne person even saved us a Google search on this very important bit of info.\nAt least they still not unfollowing each other. #MileyCyrus #LiamHemsworth 🙏😢 pic.twitter.com/rJ4YoYMkHV— Luz Clarita Jaravata 🦋 (@luzclarita_03) August 11, 2019\nAnd of course, there are those who kinda saw all of this coming.\nNot surprising #MileyCyrus #LiamHemsworth pic.twitter.com/msS4LQe4iz— Kayla (@kaylacasey98) August 11, 2019\nhonest to god, #MileyCyrus is up to her bullsh*t again and #LiamHemsworth was just like... pic.twitter.com/L1cmBwhG4j— brad (@cape_town_brad) August 11, 2019\nWatching Miley Cyrus stans mourn her split from Liam Hemsworth when I knew it wouldn’t last pic.twitter.com/QcD99qYWSo— Joshua Chenault (@joshuachenault1) August 11, 2019\nMore importantly, people are psyched about Cyrus' future projects post-Hemsworth.\n#MileyCyrus prepping herself for her crazy mode comeback once again after her split with #liamhemsworth pic.twitter.com/Q8gQhWgRy4— christine (@umberboi) August 11, 2019\nwelp, #MileyCyrus and #LiamHemsworth have broken up again, get ready for Bangerz 2.0 !! 😬 pic.twitter.com/UQUkQfuGYT— Leander Michiko 🉐🌬 (@ICEWOMANE) August 11, 2019\nWe're hoping Hemsworth will release his own thoughts soon on their separation.
