Liam Hemsworth is spotted holding hands with a woman in N.Y.C. just days after Miley Cyrus introduced Cody Simpson as her “boyfriend.”
In photos obtained by TMZ, Hemsworth can be viewed with a woman the outlet has recognized as actress Maddison Brown, 22, dining al fresco at a restaurant and going on a walk. Brown, a fellow Australian, cast in the CW series Dynasty.
Since he and Cyrus broke up in August after eight months of marriage, Hemsworth has been spotted spending time with family, including brother Chris Hemsworth and his wife Elsa Pataky.
He filed for divorce from Cyrus a few weeks after the split was announced, and thus far has only issued one statement about the breakup, writing to tell fans on Instagram, “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.”
Following the breakup, Cyrus has dated Kaitlynn Carter, from whom she split last month. She’s since been seen kissing singer Cody Simpson, who she recently called her “boyfriend.”
Both Simpson and Cyrus have known each other for very long. In a 2015 interview with GQ, Simpson said to the publication: “Miley is one of my best friends and she supports with some of that transitional stuff — trying to escape your childhood. She’s super open-minded and I’m working on becoming more like that.”
After news of their relationship got viral, she shut down criticisms that she moved on too fast from Hemsworth, writing, “I know the public feels invested in my past relationship because they felt like they saw it thru from the beginning.”
Referencing her kiss with Simpson at a smoothie shop, she wrote, “If our president can ‘grab ’em by the p—’… can’t I just have a kiss and an açai bowl?!?!” before signing off, “Get used to me dating — this is where I’m at! #HotGirlFall.”
