Liam filed legal documents in L.A. – citing the standard, “irreconcilable differences.” The former lovebirds reportedly had a prenup and kept their earnings separate during their marriage.
“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” a rep told Us Weekly in a statement on Saturday, August 10. “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.”
On August 11, Miley took to Twitter to post a cryptic message about evolving as a person.
“Don’t fight evolution because you will never win,” she wrote. “Like the mountain I am standing on top of, which was once under water, connected with Africa, change is inevitable. The Dolomites were not created over night, it was over millions of years that this magnificent beauty was formed.”
Liam finally took to Instagram to address the rumors and confirm their split on August 12.
“Hi all. Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward,” the 29-year-old wrote. “This is a private matter and I have not made, nor will I be making, any comments to any journalists or media outlets. Any reported quotes attributed to me are false. Peace and Love.”
Fans couldn’t help but notice that the lyrics behind Miley’s new tune, “Slide Away,” — which she dropped on Friday, August 16 — seem to have tons of hidden messages about her split from Liam.
Well, sorry #Miam shippers. It’s officially over.
