Liam Hemsworth sparks split rumors after unfollowing Gabriella Brooks on Instagram
After going public with their romance in January, it looks like Liam Hemsworth, 30, has hinted at a split with Australian model Gabriella Brooks, 23.
According to a report by Perth Now, fans have noticed that the duo doesn't follow one another on Instagram anymore.
Hemsworth and Brooks first grabbed headlines in mid-December when they were spotted together in Byron Bay, New South Wales, during a lunch date with his parents Craig and Leonie.
In March, it was reported that Hemsworth felt more at ease with his new girlfriend as compared to his marriage with pop sensation Miley Cyrus, 27.
"He feels more at home with Gabriella than he did with Miley and feels like he can be his complete self without any drama," a source told Us Weekly at the time. "Gabriella helped Liam boost his confidence and played an encouraging role in his life after his split with Miley. They are very happy together and it's comfortable and easy."
"Liam's family is so taken by Gabby, they think Liam has made a very solid choice. She's also so well-spoken and just seems to have a really good head on her shoulders," another insider told Ok! Australia.
Hemsworth and Cyrus went their separate ways in August last year -- just eight months after their secret wedding.
"This is a private matter and I have not made, nor will I be making, any comments to journalists or media outlets," the 'Hunger Games' star said at the time of their split.
Cyrus and Hemsworth were together for more than a decade and spent most of their time in Malibu, with the American pop star even dedicating her hit song 'Malibu' to their romance.
Following their split, Cyrus referenced her “house in the hills” and the “harbor lights” of Australia in her song 'Slide Away.' The 27-year-old singer-songwriter also wrote about Hemsworth going “back to the ocean” while she goes “back to the city lights," according to People.
Elsa Pataky, the wife of 'Avengers' star Chris Hemsworth, revealed last November how her brother-in-law was coping after the split. “My brother in law, well, after a relationship where he dedicated 10 years, he’s discouraged … but he’s taking it well,” the actress said, per Hola! magazine. “He’s a strong guy and he deserves the best. I think he deserves much more,” she added.
Liam had been leaning on family, mostly his older brother, to get back on his feet, Pataky continued.
“Family is always there to protect you. He and his brother are so close and he’s really been there for him to give him the strength he needs,” she told reporters.
Liam and Cyrus, who met on the set of 'The Last Song' in 2009, reached a settlement agreement in late December and their divorce was finalized in January this year.
Following her split with Liam, Cyrus had a whirlwind romance with Kaitlynn Carter but broke up shortly after. She then started dating Australian singer Cody Simpson, 23.
Gabriella Brooks entered the glam world at the age of 14 and signed up with agencies like Priscillas Models, Storm Models, and Next Models in Australia, America, and Britain.
She has starred in big brand campaigns such as Topshop and Calvin Klein. Reportedly, she studied ancient history and archaeology at Sydney University and loves zoology.
She had earlier been romantically linked to 1975 frontman Matt Healy for four years.
