Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and [their] 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.” Miley and Liam started dating after meeting on the set of the movie “The Last Song” in 2009.  They got married this past December.  Obviously the rumors were true, Miley has already moved on.  She was spotted on a yacht in Italy making out with . . .
