Hemsworth, 29, cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the end of his marriage to Cyrus, 26.
Hemsworth and Cyrus were an on-again, off-again couple for over a decade before getting married in December.
They announced their separation on Aug. 10 and although they didn’t have any children, they said in a statement that they will remain “dedicated parents to all of their animals they share.”
Cyrus took to Instagram on Aug. 11 to tell her followers that “change is inevitable.”
She returned to Instagram a few hours later to post another photo on a mountaintop.
“Life’s a climb… but the view is great,” she captioned the photo.
Hemsworth took to Instagram on Aug. 12 to break his silence about the separation.
“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 29-year-old actor wrote.
“This is a private matter and I have not made, nor will I be making, any comments to any journalists or media outlets,” Hemsworth wrote. “Any reported quotes attributed to me are false. Peace and Love.”
