Hemsworth's post came days after a representative for Cyrus issued a statement Saturday confirming the split.

"Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time," the statement read, according to "Entertainment Tonight." "Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what's best while they both focus on themselves and careers."

Cyrus, who has been spotted with "The Hills: New Beginnings" star Kaitlynn Carter, Brody Jenner's ex-beau, also appeared to reference the breakup on the social media platform over the weekend, "ET" reported.

"Don't fight evolution, because you will never win," she captioned one photo. "Like the mountain I am standing on top of, which was once under water, connected with Africa, change is inevitable."
