Liam Hemsworth, 29 learned about his split from wife of eight months Miley Cyrus, 26 on social media.
On August 10, 2019, Cyrus representatives had released a statement,
“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.”
According to Page Six, Hemsworth was blindsided by the statement and was in Australia at the time. Moreover, just hours after the statement was released, former Disney star Miley Cyrus was pictured smooching her new girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter, who had just split from “husband” Brody Jenner.
Liam Hemsworth did not address the split publicly until days after. On August 13, he posted,
“Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward.”
Sources close to the now ex-couple have claimed that the breakup was not unexpected as “things had been going south for months.” The source also had added that they had been separated for months and both had been pictured without their wedding rings.
Another source close to Hemsworth added that although their marriage was crumbling, he was trying to save the marriage, and wasn’t ready to publicly announce it. Sources close to Cyrus has also claimed that she had “fought” to make it work and denied that Hemsworth was taken by surprise.
Almost 2 weeks later after their split hit the news, Liam Hemsworth filed for divorce in LA on August 21.
