'You don't understand what it's like':Liam Hemsworth breaks his silence on split from Miley Cyrus
Updated: Aug 16, 2019
An emotional Liam Hemsworth has spoken for the first time in the wake of his shock split from pop star wife Miley Cyrus.
The youngest Hemsworth joined brother Chris on a trip into town on Monday, having spent the day holed up inside the Thor superstar's $4.3 million Byron Bay beach house.
After stopping off for a late-afternoon frozen yoghurt with his older brother, the actor, 29, admitted things had been tough since separating from Miley, 26, after just seven months of marriage.
'You don't understand what it's like,' Liam told Daily Mail Australia when asked about the split.
'I don't want to talk about it mate.'
The actor stepped out with his older brother Chris and his children, India, seven, and twins Tristan and Sasha, five, with the foursome heading to a frozen yoghurt cafe at the seaside town.
Liam picked a stool by the wall and crossed his legs and arms, appearing a little protective in his stance.
Having picked up his frozen dessert, the actor then stepped out into the street with Chris and his family, continuing to look downcast.
The outing comes as Miley urged Brody Jenner to 'take a nap and cool off' after he joked about her kissing his ex Kaitlynn Carter following the split.
Brody, 35, had taken to social media, where he shared a photo of himself standing on a cliff solo with a pointed caption.
'Don't let yesterday take up too much of today,' he wrote on Instagram, just the day after photos of his ex wife getting hot and heavy with Miley emerged.
Poking fun at the situation, Brody's friend Brandon Thomas Lee, 23, took to the comments with a light-hearted response.
'Let's round this scandal our band post a pic of us making out,' the son of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee said with a kissy emoji.
Brody kept up the playful tone in his reply, writing: 'Watch out! Pics of Liam and I holding hands on the beach coming soon.'
The singer/actress clapped back with a sassy response, telling Jenner: 'Go take a nap in your truck and cool off. # HotGirlSummer.'
Miley was alluding to a part of The Hills: New Beginnings where Jenner stormed off from a fight with Carter to spend the night in his car.
While Miley seemed to have the last laugh, Brody's mom Linda Thompson still chimed in with her own two cents.
'Always so proud of your dignity, generosity, kindness & nobility. You are a gentleman and I love you very much. Onward... [thumbs up emoji]' the ex of Caitlyn Jenner wrote.
Liam's appearance comes after news of their split shocked fans across the world over the weekend.
The Wrecking Ball star confirmed via a statement to that she and Liam had gone their separate ways.
Her spokesperson said: '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.'
Kaitlynn and Brody announced their own split just a week ago after a year of marriage, but it's since been claimed they never made their union official.
According to The on Sunday, Miley's 'fling came as a shock' to Liam.
'Their marriage is over and Liam is absolutely heartbroken, but Miley is making up for lost time,' claimed a source close to the couple.
'He wants to settle down and have a conventional family including kids, but that couldn't be further from what Miley is after right now.
'She made it clear she wanted to be able to have fun with other people - men and women - but it's always been something he's had a hard time understanding.'
Miley broke her silence on the split on Sunday morning, telling her Instagram followers she was going to let life take its path.
