“Broken” pop star breaks down in tears on stage

Miley Cyrus broke down in tears on stage last night following the death of her “favourite” dog.

Miley’s beloved Alaskan Klee Kai dog Floyd died on Tuesday and the pop star said she left was “broken” by the news.

Last night, the Wrecking Ball singer  invited fans to a special sound-check before the concert in Boston.

It was all too much for the 21-year-old star who got very emotional while singing a Coldplay hit for her fans.

Before the performance Miley told the crowd, “I’m sure you guys already know, but the reason that I’m so upset is my dog. I shouldn’t say he was my favourite but he was my favourite. He passed away.”

Miley later dedicated Fleetwood song Landslide to her pet.
