“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” a rep for Cyrus said in a statement to Us. “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.”
At the time, Carter and her ex Brody Jenner had just called it quits on their relationship, one year after tying the knot in June 2018. Despite having a wedding celebration in Indonesia, a source told Us that the twosome were never legally married as they failed to obtain a marriage license in the United States.
Following their Italian rendezvous, Carter and Cyrus continued to spend time together in Los Angeles, and began to flaunt their love all over Hollywood. Whether a lunch date with the Hannah Montana alum’s mom, Tish, or a birthday celebration with pals, the couple appear to have no shortage of fun together.
Jenner, who began dating model Josie Canseco shortly after Cyrus and Carter were first linked, is seemingly in full support of his former flame.
A second insider shared: “Brody and Kaitlynn separated on good terms and are still close friends. Brody is in a great headspace right now and really isn’t bothered by Kaitlynn and Miley’s relationship.”
