It's over for Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth.

Over the weekend, a rep confirmed the 26-year-old actress and the 29-year-old actor have called it quits.

"Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time," the rep said via 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."

E! News learned the two have actually been separated for months. While both celebrities have remained tight-lipped about the split, Daily Mail Australia caught Liam stepping out with his brother, Chris Hemsworth, just days after the breakup news broke.

"You don't understand what it's like," Liam told the outlet. "I don't want to talk about it, mate."

Meanwhile, Miley was recently photographed kissing Brody Jenner's ex Kaitlyn Carter while on vacation in Lake Como, Italy. According to a source, the two friends recently bonded over their public splits.

As fans will recall, Miley and Liam met in 2009 while working on their movie The Last Song. They then made their red carpet debut as a couple in 2010, and Liam proposed in 2012. While the two experienced a few ups and downs over the course of their relationship, they ended up tying the knot in December 2018. In fact, Liam said Miley took his last name.

"She will still be known as Miley Cyrus but she took my name, which is great. I think that was one of the best things about it," he told Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa back in February. "I didn't ask her to take my name and she was like of course I'm taking your name."

Miley called Liam her "survival partner" and explained the dynamic of their relationship during a recent interview with Elle.

"I think it's very confusing to people that I'm married," she told the magazine for its August 2019 issue. "But my relationship is unique. And I don't know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it's so complex, and modern, and new that I don't think we're in a place where people would get it. I mean, do people really think that I'm at home in a fucking apron cooking dinner? I'm in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women. People become vegetarian for health reasons, but bacon is still fucking good, and I know that. I made a partner decision. This is the person I feel has my back the most. I definitely don't fit into a stereotypical wife role. I don't even like that word."
