In the same interview, Miley revealed that she and Liam maintained a private friendship during their time apart. "I didn't know [we'd get back together]. I'm so crazy I have no idea. But I had something in my heart, it never felt like it was really over. We kept a great friendship really private. It's good for people to have that space to grow individually. Otherwise when you're with someone from 16 until 24, you grow into the same person."

To celebrate Miley's Younger Now album drop, Liam posts this cute cartoon selfie of them both.

The album contains several songs that make reference to Liam, including 'Malibu', 'Week Without You,' and 'She's Not Him', which is believed to be about Miley's brief romance with model Stella Maxwell during her time apart from Liam in 2015.

OCTOBER 2017: Miley spills the beans on her breakup, talking to Howard Stern she says, "I had to [end it]. I don't like when relationships are two halves trying to make a whole... So, I don't think that I have that co-dependency. 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."

JULY 2018: Out of nowhere, Miley Cyrus deletes every single one of her Instagram pictures — including all the adorable snaps of her and Liam together. Naturally, break-up rumours begin to swirl and fans are freaking out that the couple have officially called it quits. Of course, it could just be a classic celebrity publicity stunt for a new album drop or movie release (a la Taylor Swift and Blake Lively)...

Liam remains silent about Miley following the mass delete — only taking to the 'gram to share a picture from the set of his new movie, Isn't It Romantic. We get that you're probably not trying to rub it in, Liam, but now does not seem the time to be making love references!

JULY 2018: Liam confirms what we were all hoping for but too scared to wish—he and Miley are still together and going strong. The evidence? A video shared to his Instagram story of him doing a good old mid-driving prank on poor Miley.
