Miley Cyrus has spoken out after it was announced yesterday she has split from her husband Liam Hemsworth.

The 26-year-old pop star and Liam confirmed they have decided to go their separate ways after less than a year of marriage, having tied the knot in their Nashville home in December 2018.

A representative said in a statement: "Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time.

"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."

And now, Miley has taken to Instagram to address their decision to break up.

Alongside a photo of her standing in front of a European mountain range, she wrote: "Don’t fight evolution, because you will never win.

"Like the mountain I am standing on top of, which was once under water, connected with Africa, change is inevitable.

"My dad always told me 'Nature never hurries but it is always on time' .... it fills my heart with peace and hope KNOWING that is true. I was taught to respect the planet and its process and I am committed to doing the same with my own ...."

She also shared a second photo with the caption: "New day. New adventure."

News of their split comes a few days after Miley was photographed kissing Brody Jenner's ex, Kaitlynn Carter in Lake Como, Italy.

The duo were also seen cuddling by the side of a pool.

An eyewitness told Entertainment Tonight: "They were not trying to hide it at all. There were other people sitting by the pool.

"They were fully on a date, getting drinks, just the two of them. They even got a couple of massages at the hotel."

Miley and Liam have famously had a rocky, on-again, off-again relationship for years since meeting in 2009 on the set of the romantic drama The Last Song.

The Aussie actor first proposed in 2012, before the two ended their engagement and broke up a year later.

They later reconciled in 2015.

In December 2018, the pair wed during an intimate ceremony at their home in Franklin, Tennessee.
