Pop singer Miley Cyrus and actor Liam Hemsworth have finalized the terms of a divorce to officially end their brief union, according to TMZ.
What began as a bitter dispute when Hemsworth initially filed for divorce in August has since cooled to a mutual agreement for a peaceable split. The pair’s lawyers have reportedly worked out a settlement that will soon be submitted to the court.
Given that the duo had no children together — they only shared animals — and that there was a prenuptial agreement in place, there likely wasn’t a lot the lawyers had to discuss. According to TMZ’s sources, Cyrus will get sole possession of the couple’s animals and the prenup will dictate how any shared property will be split.
According to a source close to Cyrus who spoke with People magazine, “Miley is relieved that she and Liam reached an agreement when it comes to the divorce.”
“She just wants to move on,” the source added.
Cyrus and Hemsworth were married on Dec. 23, 2018, but just seven months later, Hemsworth was ready to call it quits, citing irreconcilable differences.
In a statement at the time, a representative for Cyrus 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.”
Though a settlement has been reached to finalize the divorce, the split likely won’t be made official by a judge until March 2020, meaning Cyrus and Hemsworth are technically still married until then, according to People.
That technicality apparently hasn’t stopped either of them from already moving on with other relationships, however. Hemsworth is reportedly dating model Gabriella Brooks, while Cyrus has paired up with singer Cody Simpson.
According to the source cited by People, Cyrus and Simpson two are doing “great” together right now.
“They had a wonderful Christmas Day with her family,” the source told the magazine. “They plan on celebrating New Year’s together, as well. They are also talking about an Australia trip next year. Miley seems very happy.”
As for Hemsworth, People reported that he was spotted earlier in December introducing Brooks to his parents.
