High-profile duo Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were reportedly "drifting apart" for months prior to their separation.
The 26-year-old pop star and Liam, 29, have separated after less than 12 months of marriage and, according to an insider, they've been fighting to save their relationship for a number of months.
A source told E! News: "They have been trying to make it work for months now but haven't felt they were connecting on the level they were feeling when they got married last year.
"It's been a rough year."
Liam is said to be "focused on a more simplified lifestyle while Miley has been preparing for a new wave of her music career".
