According toPEOPLE magazine, a source has confirmed the surprising news telling the publication that, "Miley and Kaitlynn broke up" but the former lovers are "still friends".
MileyandKaitlynn were close friends while they were still married to Liam Hemsworth and Brody Jenner, and according to the same source, after their respective marriages broke down they found comfort in each other.
"They’ve been friends forever and were there for each other when they were both getting separated,” the insider tells PEOPLE, “but they’re just not in a romantic relationship anymore.”

Miley and Kaitlynn first stepped out as a couple just a few short days after Miley and Aussie actor Liam Hemsworth announced their separation via a joint statement to PEOPLE on August 10.
It read: "Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers.
"They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy."
Miley and Kaitlynn were then spotted in Lake Como together on a lover's retreat, with photos of the pair kissing in Italy shattering any rumours of a Liam and Miley reconciliation.
Although their separation was reportedly amicable, an insider recently told Page Six that Liam— who was in Australia when the news broke— was "blindsided" by the announcement seeing as the former couple hadn't decided on when exactly they planned to tell the world. The same source said Liam was intentionally holding off on announcing the news in the hope he could save their "crumbling" marriage.
Following their trip to the European romantic coastal town, Miley Cyrus was accompanied by The Hills: New Beginnings star to the 2019 VMA's, where Miley performed her breakup ballad, 'Slide Away'.
The couple was also spotted in a public 'kissing session' during New York Fashion Week, leaving a devasted Liam back home in Australia to lick his wounds.
Neither Miley Cyrus or Kaitlynn Carter has commented on the breakup rumours.
