That’s one way to deal with a breakup. Just days after her split from husband Liam Hemsworth was announced, Miley Cyrus is apparently “really focused on work and being in a healthy place,” according to Us Weekly. “Miley wanted to make her relationship with Liam work more than anything,” an insider told the outlet. But sometimes things just aren’t meant to be.

A representative for Miley, 26, confirmed the split on August 10. The statement read, “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.”

Just hours before the separation was announced, the “Wrecking Ball” singer was spotted without her wedding ring in a photo on Instagram. “Mute me if you don’t want SPAMMED,” she wrote in the caption of the picture. Fans picked up on the missing ring very quickly and replied with comments like, “Where is her wedding ring?” and, “I miss the wedding ring 😭.” Plus, the same day the split was confirmed, photos surfaced of the performer kissing Brody Jenner’s ex Kaitlynn Carter.

But it sounds like there are no hard feelings between the exes. Just one day after the separation was announced, Miley took to Instagram to write about change. “Don’t fight evolution, because you will never win,” she captioned a photo standing on top of a mountain in the Dolomites of Italy. “Like the mountain I am standing on top of, which was once underwater, connected with Africa, change is inevitable. The Dolomites were not created overnight, it was over millions of years that this magnificent beauty was formed … 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 … 💙”.”

Meanwhile, Liam, 29, broke his silence about how he was doing on Monday, August 12, just two days after it was revealed that he and his wife were calling it quits. “Hi all,” he wrote on Instagram. “Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward. This is a private matter and I have not made, nor will I be making, any comments to any journalists or media outlets. Any reported quotes attributed to me are false. Peace and Love.”

As for Miley getting back to work, she did upload a recording studio selfie on August 12. That led some fans to speculate that she may be working on new music to channel her feelings over the breakup. If that helps her get through the split, all power to her.
