Miley Cyrus fans were left shocked and stunned by the news that she and husband Liam Hemsworth are breaking up. The two were together off and on for almost a decade before they finally married in December 2018. The shocking news came after she shared a photo on Instagram without her wedding ring.

"Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time," a representative for Cyrus told Entertainment Tonight in a statement. "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."
A few hours before her representative confirmed the split, Cyrus shared an eye-catching photo taken during her recent vacation in Italy. In the photo, Cyrus is not wearing her wedding ring, which some fans noticed before the statement came out.
