Wedding bells aren't in every Cyrus family member's future.

Days after Miley Cyrus, 19, announced her engagement to Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth, 22, the singer's older brother, Trace Cryus, 23, revealed he and fiancee Brenda Song, 24, are no longer together.

"Brenda and I have decided to go our separate ways. We split up a couple of months ago," Trace told Us Weekly in a statement Monday. "We will continue to focus on our careers."

"I wish Brenda the best and much success in the future," he added. "I hope everyone can respect our privacy about this situation. Thanks so much."

Trace and Song became engaged in October 2011; the couple began dating earlier that spring.

According to a source, "they were in love and they care a lot about each other, but they just weren't ready for what they got themselves into. . . it just comes down to them being too young and not ready."

Song, who played Andrew Garfield's psycho girlfriend in The Social Network, is a successful Disney Channel star whose acting credits include Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, College Road Trip and Stuck in the Suburbs.
