After recent news of their split following eight months of marriage, Liam Hemsworth has decided to make his separation from Miley Cyrus official.
According to multiple sources, the 29-year-old actor filed for divorce from Cyrus, 26, in Los Angeles on Wednesday, August 21. In the court documents that were filed by famed Hollywood divorce attorney Laura Wasser, Hemsworth has cited the reason as “irreconcilable differences.”
