We've been living in denial since finding out that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth had chosen to separate, but now, it looks like there's no going back for this beloved celebrity couple. It seems Liam has officially filed for divorce, and the new details that have emerged about their split are heartbreaking.

We may need to bring out the tissues for this ...

  • Liam filed on Wednesday, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for divorce.

    "Liam's decision to file for divorce is sad, but in the end, it was never going to work," a source close to the former couple told Entertainment Tonight. "They are too different. Liam never wanted to share Miley with anyone. He loves her and he is far too traditional. He finally realized he just wants to start fresh."

    Ugh -- that just breaks our hearts. We'd think after so many years together, he'd have figured it out by now ... but better late than never.

  • Liam is reportedly hoping he can make the divorce happen quickly.

    "At first, Liam wanted to just give it time but he finally felt like things were getting nasty and he didn't want to drag it out publicly," the source added. "He decided it was all too much." 

    That makes sense. After all, the photos that surfaced of Miley and Kaitlynn Carter have only added to the media hoopla around their breakup. Who wants to drag out something like this, anyway?

  • As far as Miley's concerned? It sounds like she's ready to move on.

    Reportedly, Miley Cyrus is more interested in figuring out who she is than being held back by someone else, even if that means her marriage coming to an end.

    "Liam loves Miley and is crushed by all of this," another insider told the outlet. "But right now Miley doesn't want to answer to anyone. She still feels the need to explore herself, her sexuality and her music. Miley has been working in the studio and wants to blow off steam."

    Yeah, she has -- her newest song, "Slide Away," is pretty freakin' good. Maybe a really great album will come from all of this, but it doesn't make their split any less sad.
  • Miley and Liam's split was first announced on August 10.

    In a statement at the time, Miley's rep said that they'd chosen to separate, choosing to "lovingly" take time apart.

    "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 read. "They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy."

    Looks like the time apart has turned permanent. Have we mentioned that we're crushed?!

  • We truly wish the best for Miley and Liam going forward.

    Breakups -- especially celebrity breakups that happen in front of the entire world -- are never easy, but we know these two will get through it. 

    They might be over for good, but hopefully, it'll lead to much happier lives for them both.
