After tying the knot less than a year ago, pop star Miley Cyrus and actor Liam Hemsworth have split.

"Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time," a rep for the high-profile duo said.

"Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what's best while they both focus on themselves and careers."

Prior to their split, Miley described her relationship with Liam as "unique".

Cyrus and Hemsworth, who both starred in the 2010 romantic drama The Last Song, got married in December.
