Earlier in August, Hollywood couple Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth announced they were separating after just barely eight months of marriage. Less than two weeks later, Liam Hemsworth was reported to have filed for divorce.
And while the two have kept mum about the reason for their unexpected split, Liam has taken to Instagram to announce to his fans that he and Miley “have recently separated” and that the split is a private matter, explaining that “I have not made, nor will I be making, any comments to any journalists or media outlets.”
Miley, on the other hand, was spotted on vacation, and (surprise!) lip locking with The Hills: New Beginnings star Kaitlynn Carter. The photos were taken just hours before Miley and Liam’s reps announced the separation.
With all the backlash Miley is receiving accusing her of cheating, the pop star finally took it to social media to defend herself in this raw, emotional statement about her life and love.
