Sad news for Miley/Liam fans: After less than one year of marriage, the couple has reportedly decided to split.

“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” Cyrus' rep 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.”

Fans started to notice something was up with the couple when Miley posted an Instagram yesterday without her wedding ring on. She's been vacationing in Italy with Kaitlynn Carter, who also just split from her husband Brody Jenner.

Miley and Liam wed in a private ceremony back in December and decorated their home with Mr. & Mrs. balloons. Fans found out about it when the couple’s close friend Conrad Carr accidentally leaked the ceremony on his Instagram story. Miley and Liam have been together on and off since 2009 when they met on the set of The Last Song, so this is pretty heartbreaking.

Twitter is devastated as well:

Hopefully the two of them will find happiness moving forward.
