Liam has also made his first public remark on the split, albeit reluctantly. The actor was approached by a Daily Mail Australia reporter who asked him the recent reports, to which Liam replied, "'You don't understand what it's like. I don't want to talk about it, mate."
Liam's comments come two days after Miley's rep said the two had "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," the full statement reads.
Despite most of us being very confused and upset by the news the two had decided to go their seperate ways, according to those close to Liam and Miley, the split doesn't come as a surprise.
“This split isn’t shocking to people who are actually with them every day,” a source told PEOPLE yesterday. “After they reunited, everyone thought they were this ‘perfect’ couple, but they still had a lot of issues. They’re not on the same page when it comes to a lot of fundamental things that make a relationship work,” they added. “It’s not surprising at all.”
Another source told E! News that Miley and Liam "were drifting apart" and were "trying to make it work for months now."
