Miley Cyrus Says "Goodbyes Are Never Easy" Following Kaitlynn Carter Split

Miley Cyrus is leaning on her family following her split from Kaitlynn Carter. The 26-year-old singer recently escaped to Utah for a little R&R and has been sharing photos from her trip on Instagram. In addition to posting scenic shots of herself on top of a canyon and hiking, Miley appeared to reference the breakup in a bikini snap, writing, "Goodbyes are never easy . . . but g2g." It's unclear if this was a cryptic message about the split, or if Miley was simply just marking the end of her vacation. However, she did post a photo of her mom, Tish Cyrus, on her Instagram Stories, captioning it, "My mom is the love of my life forever."

Miley announced her separation from Liam Hemsworth after seven months of marriage in August. Shortly after, Miley began dating Kaitlynn, who had also recently ended her marriage with Brody Jenner. Despite a handful of PDA-filled outings, the two decided to go their separate ways earlier this month. "Miley and Kaitlynn broke up," People reported. "[But] they're still friends . . . They've been friends forever and were there for each other when they were both getting separated, but they're just not in a romantic relationship anymore."
