I wish Miley 'nothing but health and happiness' after split - Liam
Liam Hemsworth said he wishes estranged wife Miley Cyrus "nothing but health and happiness" following their split.
The Australian actor (29) and the US pop star (26) have separated after less than a year of marriage.
Hemsworth confirmed they were no longer together on Instagram.
He said: "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."
Hemsworth said the split was a "private matter" and he would not be making any further comment in the media, adding: "Peace and Love."
A representative for Hannah Montana star Cyrus announced the shock split on Saturday.
In a statement, they 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."
Cyrus and Hemsworth wed in December 2018 after almost a decade of on-again-off-again dating. They met on the set of 2010 drama The Last Song.
Cyrus has already returned to the recording studio, sharing a picture on Monday showing her behind a microphone.
She also posted a cryptic message about evolution on Instagram.
Sharing images of herself with a mountain range in the background, she said: "Like the mountain I am standing on top of, which was once under water, connected with Africa, change is inevitable.
"The Dolomites were not created over night, it was over millions of years that this magnificent beauty was formed."
She added: "My dad always told me 'Nature never hurries but it is always on time'... it fills my heart with peace and hope KNOWING that is true.
"I was taught to respect the planet and its process and I am committed to doing the same with my own..."
