News just dropped that Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus have agreed to separate at this time after only about a year of marriage. This is obviously a big shocking revelation, the entertainment press “WOW!” of the moment, but it seems the musician was somewhat obvious about this a day or so ago when she photographed herself without her wedding ring in a shot that went up on her Instagram.

See a photo from her account below pretty much sealing the deal on her independence…

The statement basically just said they need to focus on themselves and their careers.

“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.” [via]
