Miley Cyrus Is Back in the Recording Studio After Announcing Split from Husband Liam Hemsworth
On Monday, days after PEOPLE exclusively confirmed her breakup, the singer, 26, shared a selfie from a recording studio on Twitter and Instagram Story that showed her wearing headphones and posing in front of a microphone.
Cyrus, whose most recent single “On a Roll” was released in June, left the photo without a caption but the new image comes after hours after she seemingly broke her silence about the separation on social media Sunday.
Speaking out about how “change is inevitable,” the star shared an empowering message during her Italy trip with her sister Brandi and Kaitlynn Carter, whom the “Mother’s Daughter” hitmaker was spotted kissing over the weekend.
“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,” Cyrus captioned two photos of herself with the picturesque mountain ranges of northeastern Italy in the background.
“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,” she concluded.
Seven months after tying the knot, Cyrus and Hemsworth, 29, announced their breakup in a statement exclusively to PEOPLE on Saturday.
“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” a rep for Cyrus said. “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.”
A source tells PEOPLE the couple actually split months prior to the announcement.
The two ended their engagement and broke up a year later, before reconciling in 2015. Then in December 2018, they wed during an intimate ceremony at their home in Franklin, Tennessee.
During her Italian getaway, Cyrus is “just having fun” with the newly single Carter, according to a source who told PEOPLE that the pair has mutual friends in common.
Earlier this month, Carter annnounced her split from husband and The Hills star Brody Jenner, whom she wed in 2018. “Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter have decided to amicably separate,” the pair’s reps, Scott Newman and Lindsay Maguire, told PEOPLE. “They love and respect one another, and know that this is the best decision for their relationship moving forward,” the reps added.
At the time, an insider said Jenner and Carter were not legally married as they never made their union official.
