LONDON - Miley Cyrus has no plans to file for divorce just yet.

The _Nothing Breaks Like a Heart _singer announced over the weekend that she and Liam Hemsworth had separated after just eight months of marriage but insiders have claimed it doesn't necessarily mean their relationship - which was rekindled in late 2015, almost two years after they split for the first time - is over for good.

A source told_ People magazine_: "They are having a break right now because they needed it. It was a bad situation with a lot of disagreements.

"They both agreed it's better to spend time apart, but this doesn't mean their relationship is completely over."

Insiders pointed out the 26-year-old singer and the 29-year-old actor have previously been in similar situations and found their way back together again and insisted the pair haven't completely ruled out the idea of a reconciliation in the future.

The source said: "They are great together when they are happy. There is absolutely hope that they will get back together again."

It was recently claimed the _Wrecking Ball _hitmaker had suggested she and Hemsworth go to therapy in a bid to repair their marital problems.

A source said recently: "[Miley] really fought to make it work. She wanted to go to therapy. She just wants to be in a healthy and focused place."

Days after their split, _Malibu _hitmaker Cyrus was spotted locking lips with Kaitlynn Carter, who recently broke up with her estranged husband Brody Jenner, but pals don't think they are in a real relationship with one another.

One insider claimed: "Miley and Liam love each other and always will. Most of their friends feel they'll be back together. No one thinks Miley and Kaitlynn are in a real relationship, they believe it's more fun on vacation."
