Fact: Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are actual relationship goals. They met on the set of one of our fave rom-coms, they’ve adopted puppies together, and have THE BEST Insta banter. I mean, what more could you ask for?

But the pair is not been without their fair share of rough patches. Just four years ago, the engaged couple split for a ~mysterious~ reason. Now, Miley’s FINALLY spilling the beans on what exactly went down with her fiancé all those years ago.

When asked about the split in an interview with Howard Stern, the 24-year-old year responded, “I had to. I don't like when relationships are two halves trying to make a whole.”

Miley went on to say that she's naturally quite an independent person anyway. “I don't think that I have that co-dependency,” she said, adding, “I think people that break up and get back together, that's awesome.”

“You get time to be yourself. You get time to grow up. I think if you're growing up attached to another person, you never really get solid as your own being.”

So, as much as it KILLED us to see these guys apart, we've gotta admit, sounds like it was for the right reason. Besides, splitting up for a bit might be exactly what makes them so damn perfect now.

Miley+Liam=4eva.
