Have Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth broken up? We look at the evidence

LEAVE MILEY AND LIAM ALONE.

Miley Cyrus is a bona fide A-lister. Her father, Billy Ray Cyrus is an American icon — he literally wrote 'Achy Breaky Heart'. And Miley herself has been in the spotlight ever since Hannah Montana premiered in 2006. The 25 year old's long-term boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth, also comes from a famous (and very good looking) family of actors.

So what do you get when you put Miley and Liam together? A lot of media scrutiny, that's what.

This week, there has been plenty of speculation that Miley and Liam have broken off their engagement.

The rumours began when Miley deleted everything off her Instagram — including all of the cute-as-hell images she's posted of herself and Liam over the years.

It's a bit of a weird move, especially considering she has over 76 million Instagram followers. The singer songwriter has built up her Insta-following over many years. So why delete everything now?

(Side note: As you can see above, Liam's Instagram activity has been business as usual.)

One theory is that Miley and Liam have broken up. A source told OK! this week that the two have called off their engagement because "Miley put off plans for the wedding and Liam was growing tired of it." Apparently, "He wants kids and doesn't want to keep putting it off but it's not quite the timeline Miley had in mind... he is left heartbroken."

Eh! Is this really the case? Perhaps Miley is just pulling a Blake Lively, deleting everything off her grid to gain a bit of traction and promote a new project with her next post?

TBH, we ship Miley and Liam. Here's hoping this speculated break up is just a storm in a teacup.
