Disney Channel star Miley Cyrus has broken up with her boyfriend of almost nine months and is tweeting about it.
According to E! News, the 16-year-old ended her relationship last week with underwear model and aspiring singer Justin Gaston, 20, as she prepared to leave L.A. for her two-month shoot for "The Last Song" in Savannah, Ga.
Though her rep had no comment, the teen star and her ex-boyfriend's Twitter posts over the weekend reflected the breakup. (Her June 8 tweets included: "trying to smile through a gloomy day in savannah," and "life will go on. you will smile again.") Gaston quoted lyrics from John Mayer's "Dreaming With a Broken Heart" in a June 4 tweet.
The couple went through a rocky path because of Cyrus' resurrected friendship with ex-boyfriend Nick Jonas, of the Jonas Brothers, E! News reported.
