A fiery, all-consuming love was theirs which spanned 10 years after their meeting on The Last Song in 2009. It ended in heartache and despair as the singing super star admitted their final parting had been like a death. The pop star, 27, lamented "losing a love so deep" in a heartwrenching interview, a year on from their split.

She told Barstool Sports' Call Her Daddy podcast: "I had a very public, very big breakup that was over a 10-year span of a relationship... "It’s like a death when you lose a love that deep. It feels like a death."

Tragedy struck as their marriage crumbled after just eight months. It was a whirlwind when the couple had a surprise wedding at her family home but it wasn't meant to be. Her Wrecking Ball love life has seen her break up with Kaitlyn Carter and long-time BFF Cody Simpson in the last year since she left Liam's arms for good. Within days of splitting from Cody, Miley was dishing the details on her divorce from Liam.

Her tell-all interview also covered how she lied to her ex Liam about being a virgin for 10 years. The singer had previously had sexual experiences with women but she had never gone the whole way with a man before her love with Liam.
