"Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time," Cyrus' representative told People.com in a statement Saturday. "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."
Entertainment Tonight published photos this weekend of Cyrus, 26, kissing and cuddling reality TV personality Kaitlynn Carter, 30, while they are on vacation in Italy.
