Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have both spoken out since rocking the celebrity gossip world with news of their split.
And each has said something very, very different.
Following a mere eight months of marriage -- but a decade of mostly being together, with the occasional hiatus here and there -- Cyrus and Hemsworth pulled the plug on their romance over the weekend.
The separation was confirmed by a rep for the singer, who said the following to People Magazine:
"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."
As you might expect, however, this latter request has been ignored.
This likely would have been the case no matter what, considering just how famous both halves of the now-former couple are, but a follow-up to the story has made it impossible for outlets to simply give Liam and Miley privacy.
And that follow-up is this:
Yes, that is Brody Jenner's ex-wife. And, yes, she's a woman.
In the wake of this bombshell*, Liam was spotted out in Byron Bay, Australia with his older hot brother on Monday morning.
When asked about the situation by The Daily Mail Australia, the actor demurred, wishing his private life to remain as private as possible, which has been his general take for many years now.
"You don't understand what it's like," the actor told the outlet. "I don't want to talk about it, mate."
(*Okay, fine, perhaps we can't really call this a bombshell because Miley only just recently said she was NOT a "stereotypical wife," bristling at the mere use of this word and confirming she's still very much attracted to women.)
As for Cyrus?
She has also remained pretty quiet about her relationship with Liam ever since it started way back in 2010 -- but she's never been one to remain quiet on the Internet.
Staying very much on brand, she shared the following image on Instagram yesterday, breaking her silence on the end of her marriage by writing some very profound and weird stuff.
First, the image:
And now the deep caption affiliated with it:
Don’t fight evolution, because you will never win. Like the mountain I am standing on top of , which was once under water , connected with Africa , change is inevitable.
The Dolomites were not created over night, it was over millions of years that this magnificent beauty was formed.
My dad always told me “ Nature never hurries but it is always on time”.... it fills my heart with peace and hope KNOWING that is true.
I was taught to respect the planet and its process and I am committed to doing the same with my own...
It's not all that hard to read between Miley's lines here, of course.
She has always been very open about her sexuality and it admitting with this message that she's a work in progress.
She's evolving as a human and also as a sexual being. All totally fine and maybe even admirable things, of course.
But the question remains: When did she start dating Kailtynn Carter?
Is she actually dating her? Did she cheat on Liam with her?
Because, if so, Cyrus can talk profoundly about evolution and nature and whatever else she wants... but she'll still have acted in a very inappropriate manner.
