Miley Cyrus reveals the real reason she and Liam Hemsworth split

Fans were in utter disbelief when it was revealed earlier this month that Miley Cyrus and her longtime beau and husband of nearly eight months, Liam Hemsworth, had decided to call it quits.

Per Entertainment Tonight, a representative for the couple said: "Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. 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."

News of the separation was soon followed by intimate photos of the 26-year-old singer kissing reality star Kaitlynn Carter, who had recently split with Brody Jenner, while on vacation in Italy.

We were given little indication as to what had prompted the unexpected split, so many of us jumped to the conclusion that it may have had a little something to do with Miley's fling with Kaitlynn. Or perhaps an entirely different lover altogether - basically a lot of us assumed that the marriage had ended due to cheating.

Miley Cyrus was having the time of her life during her recent Italian getaway:

In order to put these rumours to bed, the former Disney star took to Twitter to tell her side of the story in a series of 11 tweets.

The first of which began:

"I can accept that the life I’ve chosen means I must live completely open and transparent with my fans who I love, and the public, 100% of the time. What I cannot accept is being told I’m lying to cover up a crime I haven’t committed. I have nothing to hide."

Miley then delves into her reputation for partying and experimenting with various drugs. She also recalls losing out on a major merchandising deal as a result of her wild behaviour. Furthermore, she admits to making mistakes in her personal life, which included cheating in past relationships.

The Black Mirror star goes into further detail about her often frowned upon behaviour in the public eye, recounting a time she was fired from animated movie Hotel Transylvania for buying Liam a ''penis cake'' for his birthday and licking said cake.

After detailing all her past mistakes, Miley very emphatically states that once she and Liam reconciled, she was "committed".

"There are NO secrets to uncover here," she insists. "I’ve learned from every experience in my life. I’m not perfect, I don’t want to be, it’s boring. I’ve grown up in front of you, but the bottom line is, I HAVE GROWN UP."

She then adds that while she can "admit to a lot of things", she refuses to admit that her marriage "ended because of cheating".

"Liam and I have been together for a decade," she continues. "I’ve said it before & it remains true, I love Liam and always will."

She continues: "BUT at this point I had to make a healthy decision for myself to leave a previous life behind. I am the healthiest and happiest I have been in a long time. You can say I am a twerking, pot smoking, foul mouthed hillbilly but I am not a liar."
