Liam Hemsworth's sister-in-law Elsa Pataky rushed to his defense when talking about his nasty split from Miley Cyrus. Pataky saying that Liam "deserves much better" most likely isn't a direct dig at Cyrus, but rather an overall statement that Liam deserves a more stable relationship and deserves to be happy after such a destabilizing event in his life. "After a relationship that you've dedicated ten years to, he's a little bit down, but he's coping well", the 43-year-old actress said.
It was a surprising move from Elsa, who had been close friends with Miley during the pop star's decade-long relationship with Liam. As Elle pointed out, the two even got matching tattoos in 2016 to solidify their friendship.
In contrast, Liam has kept a remarkably low profile, posting only occasionally on social media and being spotted in September on an exclusive private island with brother Chris and his wife Elsa.
Liam and Miley met on the set of The Last Song in 2009 and had an on-again, off-again relationship for years before tying the knot in December 2018.
"Hi all. Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward", the message began.
Elsa Pataky spoke out about Miley Cyrus.
"Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what's best while they both focus on themselves and careers".
The couple announced they were splitting in August after less than a year of marriage, with Liam filing for divorce 11 days later citing "irreconcilable differences". "Please respect their process and privacy".
So cute! Cody Simpson showed the new lock screen on his phone, which features a baby Miley Cyrus smiling at the camera amid rumors that the couple was heading for a separation.
"They are the ones picking up the pieces", a source told Radar.
Cody Simpson and Miley Cyrus are now dating.
