Liam Hemsworth, spotted without wedding ring, makes first statement on Miley Cyrus separation

One day after news broke that he and wife Miley Cyrus are over, Liam Hemsworth was spotted in Australia sans wedding ring — and he reluctantly spoke to a reporter who asked him about the split.

Wearing a beige hoodie and black jeans but no gold band, Hemsworth was approached by the Daily Mail Australia while grabbing a frozen yogurt with older brother Chris Hemsworth.

"You don't understand what it's like," Hemsworth said.

He added, "I don't want to talk about it, mate."

Hemsworth lived with Cyrus in their shared Malibu home until it burned down in the devastating Woolsey Fire that consumed a large swath of California last year. It's unclear where he's now living long-term, but the Daily Mail reports that he's currently staying with brother Chris in his beach house in on the Australian coast.

In addition to Chris, the actor's been spending time with his nieces, 7-year-old India and 5-year-old twins Tristan and Sasha, who were along for the froyo run this weekend.

Hemsworth and Cyrus, who wed in 2018 after a decade of on-and-off dating, share no children, but the official statement about their separation describes them as "dedicated parents to all of their animals."

One of the ex-couple's final official outings together was in April 2019 to support Chris at the premiere of "Avengers: Endgame." A month later, all appeared normal as they posed on the red carpet at the Met Gala.

It's unclear how long a separation was in the works, but Cyrus was still wearing her engagement ring as recently as August 2, according to her Instagram page.

The news of their breakup came as photos emerged of a swimsuit-clad Cyrus kissing Brody Jenner's ex, Kaitlynn Carter, during an Italy vacation.
