- Liam Hemsworth reportedly found out about his split from Miley Cyrus on social media, sources told Page Six.
- The singer first announced the breakup news with a statement from her rep on August 10, and Hemsworth publicly responded to the announcement days later on Instagram.
- The actor filed for divorce on August 21.
Sources have told Page Six that Liam Hemsworth found out about his breakup from Miley Cyrus on social media. He was in his native Australia when Cyrus announced the split with a statement from her rep and was reportedly "blindsided" by the news.
The former couple have not yet responded to the report, and it seems especially unlikely that Hemsworth will at all. The actor has been keeping mum in the wake of the breakup news, as Cyrus appears to move on with The Hills: New Beginnings star Kaitlynn Carter.
Hemsworth made a rare statement about his separation from Cyrus days after the singer's rep initially announced the news in early August. He wrote in a personal Instagram post, "Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward. This is a private matter and I have not made, nor will I be making, any comments to any journalists or media outlets. Any reported quotes attributed to me are false. Peace and Love."
The Hunger Games star filed for divorce on August 21, citing irreconcilable differences, according to documents obtained by People. Hemsworth was reportedly hoping to reconcile with Cyrus, per Us Weekly, but after he saw how his family reacted to the singer's PDA photos with new flame Kaitlynn Carter, things changed.
