Well, when it comes to the news that they're living apart, we guess it's not that easy to hide.
Now Nick has finally responded to the rumors, and his answer confirms our worst fears for the pair. He said:

We're not going to lie: we're getting SERIOUSLY nervous for her!
Speculation that Miley Cyrus is a self-harmer has followed the starlet for quite some time, as she's been spotted out on numerous occasions in the past sporting what look to be a series of scars above her left wrist and up the arm!
Combined with some elusive Twitter messages regarding the very real and dangerous condition that plagues way too many teenagers in this country, it now seems abundantly clear that the former Disney starlet has faced - and perhaps is STILL facing - some serious personal demons!
Ch-ch-check out some photos of Miley as she arrived at Clive Davis' annual Pre-Grammy Party (above)!
While she may have tried to keep the focus on her fierce new haircut and super-provocative fashion choices, our eyes immediately went to her arm!
Obviously, it's tough to really gauge how recently those marks may have been made, but it still breaks our heart to think that at some point in her life, she was dealing with so many issues of self-worth that she resorted to trying to give her pain a physical representation and outlet on her own skin.
We sincerely hope that those days are behind you, gurl.
And if they are not - and for anyone else struggling with similar issues - you are not alone!
