Was Liam Hemsworth Using This New Project to Distract Himself From His Rocky Relationship with Miley Cyrus?

Liam Hemsworth has had a tough time romantically. Just a few months ago, he seemed like he had the perfect love story. He had met the supposed love of his life when he was young and after a rocky romance, they had found their way back to one another and eventually entered into wedded bliss.

Except, apparently, there was nothing blissful about Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus’ marriage. The two recently announced their separation and Hemsworth filed for divorce.

Hemsworth and Cyrus’ divorce

Cyrus and Hemsworth first met on the set of the 2009 movie, The Last Song. They started dating soon after. They got engaged in 2012 but decided to call the whole thing off in 2013. But over five years later, the couple finally got their wedding and married in December of 2018.

Unfortunately, the marriage didn’t even last a year.

“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” a rep for Cyrus told People. “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.”

Why did the couple split up?

For fans and people who love a good full-circle romance, this split was surprising. But for those who knew the couple intimately, it was always coming.

“This split isn’t shocking to people who are actually with them every day,” a source told the outlet.

“After they reunited, everyone thought they were this ‘perfect’ couple, but they still had a lot of issues. They’re not on the same page when it comes to a lot of fundamental things that make a relationship work,” the source adds. “It’s not surprising at all.”

Since the split, Hemsworth had been pretty tight-lipped about the whole thing, especially after Cyrus was seen out kissing Brody Jenner’s ex Kaitlynn Carter. But he recently spoke about Cyrus for the first time since the breakup on his Instagram.

“Hi all,” he captioned a picture of a beach. “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.”

What new project is Hemsworth working on?

Some say the best way to get over someone is to throw yourself into work. And that’s exactly what Hemsworth is doing. Yesterday, he announced his newest project, Killerman.

“Excited to announce a movie I worked on called Killerman will be released in the USA on August 30th,” he wrote on Instagram. “I’m incredibly proud of the work everyone did on it. It was an absolute honor to work with my friend Emory Cohen again, one of my favorite actors, Malik Bader, an extremely creative and intelligent director, and the brilliant Ken Seng for his work as Director of Photography.”

“Blood, sweat, and tears were shed from all who were involved. Independent film making is always a tough thing to pull off and I just want to thank all the hard-working people who helped make it happen.”
