Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have reportedly broken up after less than a year of marriage.

“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” a representative for Cyrus told People. “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.”

Rumors of a breakup began to swirl after Cyrus posted numerous images on her Instagram of her without her wedding ring on Saturday (Aug. 10).

The photos were taken on vacation with Brody Jenner's ex-wife, Kaitlynn Carter, who split with Jenner this past week after one year of marriage. Carter posted two images of her and Cyrus while vacationing on Lake Como in Italy. In a since-deleted comment, Jenner left a comment on one of the posts. "Hot girl summer," Jenner wrote with a flame emoji.

ET shared images of Cyrus and Carter kissing while out in the sun in Italy.

In a Vanity Fair interview earlier this year, Cyrus described her sexuality as a "queer person" in a "hetero relationship."
