News reached us this weekend that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth had agreed to go their separate ways, leaving fans heartbroken and completely shook. I mean, I will put my hands up and admit that I thought Liam and Miley were in it for the long haul.
With fans wondering what will happen following the split (another Wrecking Ball-Esque banger, perhaps?), Liam has kept his head down, extending his stay in Australia.
Miley, on the other hand, appears very reflective following the break-up, sharing sage words with her fans. And she has also been seen getting, ahem... close and cozy with reality TV star, Kaitlynn Carter while on vacation together.
I mean, that's one way to get over a breakup, isn't it? Miley has also thrown some serious shade at Kaitlynn's ex over Instagram and, in true Miley fashion, she didn't hold back.
After heartbroken Liam Hemsworth spoke out about those shocking pics, reports are in that Miley and her new beau may be getting pretty serious...
Keep scrolling to spill the tea...
