Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are less than a month away from being officially divorced.
In court papers obtained by TMZ, a judge has signed off on their divorce settlement, but it won’t be official until February 22.
The legal documents noted “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce.
Last month, Liam and his ex, Miley Cyrus, reached a settlement in their divorce, TMZ reported. The site noted that it wasn’t difficult to reach an agreement since there were no kids involved and there was a prenup in place.
Liam and Miley called it quits in August 2019, when he filed for divorce. A week before Liam filed the divorce papers, Miley released her new single “Slide Away,” which many have speculated is about their breakup.
The song references their Malibu home being lost in the wildfires last year. She sings, “Once upon a time it was made for us, woke up one day and it turned to dust. Baby, we were found, but now we’re lost. So it’s time to let it go.”
Cyrus also appears to discuss their future without each other, singing, “So won't you slide away? Back to the ocean, I'll go back to the city lights.” Liam grew up in Australia and loves spending time surfing, while Miley grew up with the city lights of Los Angeles.
Miley and Liam had been together on and off for the previous nine years. After the split, her rep 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."
Liam released a statement on his Instagram, saying, “Just a quick note to say that 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.”
Liam has now moved on with Gabriella Brooks, while Miley is dating Cody Simpson.
