A lot has unfolded, in full view of the public, since Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth announced their separation a little over a week ago.

There was the initial divorce statement, pictures of Cyrus on holiday kissing reality TV star Kaitlynn Carter, a separate clarification from Hemsworth, rumours that the couple were just, in fact, taking a break and then the familiar tabloid 'sources' feeding the gossip machine from both sides.

However, all of the speculation has now climaxed with the revelation that Hemsworth has officially filed for divorce from his wife of eight months.

In court documents, the Australian actor cited 'irreconcilable differences' as the reason for the divorce, reports CNN.

The couple had a pre-marital agreement (pre-nup) in place and there are no 'community assets' to divvy up.

Cyrus and Hemsworth married in a low-key ceremony in December after 10 years of on-off dating. The couple met on the set of the Nicholas Sparks' movie The Last Song in 2009.

Their split came as a surprise to fans considering their recent nuptials. In the statement announcing their separation, a representative for Cyrus told People: 'Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what's best while they both focus on themselves and careers.'

The statement stressed they are 'lovingly taking time apart' while also remaining 'dedicated parents' to their animals - which were all thankfully saved from a devastating wildfire that destroyed their Californian home last year.

Days later, Cyrus and Carter - who also recently announced her marital separation, from The Hills star husband Brody Jenner - were pictured kissing in Italy. When Jenner then joked on Instagram 'pics of Liam and I holding hands on the beach coming soon', Cyrus clapped back telling the reality star: 'Go take a nap in your truck and cool off'.

Cyrus and Carter have since reportedly been spotted on dates, with the We Can't Stop singer's mother, Tish, even joining them for one outing.

When reports swirled that Hemsworth had made off-the-shoulder comments to the press, he then took matters into his own hands by clarifying on Instagram that he has not spoken to any journalists.

Hi all Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward. This is a private matter and I have not made, nor will I be making, any comments to any journalists or media outlets. Any reported quotes attributed to me are false. Peace and Love.

'I wish her [Cyrus] nohing but health and happiness going forward,' he clarified.

Cyrus has also articulated her feelings since the break up, releasing the song 'Slide Away' which features lyrics like 'Move on, we're not 17, I'm not who I used to be. You said that everything changed, you're right we're grown now.'
