A representative for Miley confirmed the split on the weekend, after she was pictured without a wedding ring in her social media snaps.

Miley has been the topic of everyone’s conversation as she was pictured holidaying with Kaitlynn Carter in Italy only a week after her split from Kim Kardashian's step-brother Brody Jenner.

The pair were snapped kissing on a yacht, which sparked rumours of a romance. Miley has always been open about her sexuality and has previously dated women.
