An emotional Liam Hemsworth has spoken for the first time in the wake of his shock split from pop star wife Miley Cyrus.

The youngest Hemsworth joined brother Chris on a trip into town on Monday, having spent the day holed up inside the Thor superstar's $4.3 million Byron Bay beach house.

After stopping off for a late-afternoon frozen yoghurt with his older brother, the actor, 29, admitted things had been tough since separating from Miley, 26, after just seven months of marriage.

'You don't understand what it's like,' Liam told Daily Mail Australia when asked about the split. 

'I don't want to talk about it mate.'

(Photo by Dia Dipasupil/Getty Images) In the first photos of the Australian star since the split was announced on Saturday, Liam appeared visibly downtrodden. 

Wearing a stern expression, Liam dressed down in a caramel-toned hoodie and black skinny jeans, as well as a pair of scuffed white sneakers. 

The actor stepped out with his older brother Chris and his children, India, seven, and twins Tristan and Sasha, five, with the foursome heading to a frozen yoghurt cafe at the seaside town. 

Liam picked a stool by the wall and crossed his legs and arms, appearing a little protective in his stance.

Having picked up his frozen dessert, the actor then stepped out into the street with Chris and his family, continuing to look downcast. 

The outing comes as Miley urged Brody Jenner to 'take a nap and cool off' after he joked about her kissing his ex Kaitlynn Carter following the split. 

Brody, 35, had taken to social media, where he shared a photo of himself standing on a cliff solo with a pointed caption.

'Don't let yesterday take up too much of today,' he wrote on Instagram, just the day after photos of his ex wife getting hot and heavy with Miley emerged.

Poking fun at the situation, Brody's friend Brandon Thomas Lee, 23, took to the comments with a light-hearted response. 

'Let's round this scandal our band post a pic of us making out,' the son of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee said with a kissy emoji.

Brody kept up the playful tone in his reply, writing: 'Watch out! Pics of Liam and I holding hands on the beach coming soon.' 

The singer/actress clapped back with a sassy response, telling Jenner: 'Go take a nap in your truck and cool off. #HotGirlSummer.'

Miley was alluding to a part of The Hills: New Beginnings where Jenner stormed off from a fight with Carter to spend the night in his car.  

While Miley seemed to have the last laugh, Brody's mom Linda Thompson still chimed in with her own two cents.

'Always so proud of your dignity, generosity, kindness & nobility. You are a gentleman and I love you very much. Onward... [thumbs up emoji]' the ex of Caitlyn Jenner wrote. 

Liam's appearance comes after news of their split shocked fans across the world over the weekend.

Earlier on Monday, a video resurfaced online of the couple looking distant in the final days of their doomed seven-month marriage. 

The short clip, which was recorded in Solvang, California on July 9, is believed to be the last known footage of the pair together before they announced their breakup.   

The footage showed Miley and Liam strolling down the street looking downcast and distracted.

The Can't Be Tamed singer gazed down at her iPhone and kept her distance from her husband, trailing at least a metre behind him.

Liam wore a sullen expression on his face as he walked ahead.

The footage was taken after Miley's performance at the Glastonbury music festival in England. 

It was shot before Liam returned to Australia alone, where he remains in the company of brother Chris in Bryon Bay.  

In contrast to the candid footage, a selfie the couple took with a fan on the same day showed Miley and Liam looking much happier.

Just one month later, the Hollywood sweethearts announced their split.

The Wrecking Ball star confirmed via a statement to that she and Liam had gone their separate ways. 

Her spokesperson 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 was said to have been blindsided by photos of his estranged wife kissing Kaitlynn Carter, 30, the ex of The Hills star Brody Jenner, 35, on a girls' holiday in Lake Como, Italy.

Kaitlynn and Brody announced their own split just a week ago after a year of marriage, but it's since been claimed they never made their union official. 

According to The Sun on Sunday, Miley's 'fling came as a shock' to Liam.

'Their marriage is over and Liam is absolutely heartbroken, but Miley is making up for lost time,' claimed a source close to the couple.

'He wants to settle down and have a conventional family including kids, but that couldn't be further from what Miley is after right now. 

'She made it clear she wanted to be able to have fun with other people - men and women - but it's always been something he's had a hard time understanding.' 

Miley broke her silence on the split on Sunday morning, telling her Instagram followers she was going to let life take its path.

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

'The Dolomites were not created over night, it was over millions of years that this magnificent beauty was formed.'

'My dad always told me, 'Nature never hurries but it is always on time'... it fills my heart with peace and hope KNOWING that is true.'

She concluded by a reflecting on her own life, saying: 'I was taught to respect the planet and its process and I am committed to doing the same with my own.'

Meanwhile, a source told People magazine on Sunday that the couple's split 'isn't shocking to people who are actually with them every day.'

They said: 'After they reunited [in 2016 following their previous break-up], everyone thought they were this 'perfect' couple, but they still had a lot of issues.

'They're not on the same page when it comes to a lot of fundamental things that make a relationship work. It's not surprising at all.' 

OK! Australia had previously reported that the couple had clashed over family plans.

Liam had apparently wanted to settle down while Miley wasn't ready, leading to an 'explosive fight' back in July 2018, months before their secret December wedding.

'He wants kids and doesn't want to keep putting it off but it's not quite the timeline Miley had in mind... he is left heartbroken,' a source said at the time.

'Miley put off plans for the wedding and Liam was growing tired of it... They haven't been getting along in recent months.

'[She] didn't really want to get married. It's something that everyone else seemed to get but Liam. [His] family had been begging him to see the light for a long time, but he had faith in Miley. Now he feels like an idiot.'

Furthermore, Liam was also allegedly embarrassed by Miley's outrageous behavior at the Met Gala in New York City on May 6.

The Met Gala was the couple's last red carpet appearance together before announcing their split.

'She was licking his face for the cameras on the red carpet, then grinding on people on the dance floor inside and grabbing her crotch,' a source told OK! Australia. 

'He gets turned off when she acts up for the cameras,' they added. 'He really doesn't like that side of her, because he is the total opposite.'

The break-up comes after Miley spoke to Elle magazine last month about how she 'doesn't fit into a stereotypical wife role.'

'I think it's very confusing to people that I'm married. But my relationship is unique,' she said.

'I mean, do people really think that I'm at home in a f**ing apron cooking dinner? I'm in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women.'

'People become vegetarian for health reasons, but bacon is still f**ing good, and I know that,' she added.

'I made a partner decision. This is the person I feel has my back the most. I definitely don't fit into a stereotypical wife role. I don't even like that word.'

Miley and Liam secretly married in a surprise ceremony at their home in Franklin, Tennessee in December 2018.

The couple first met on set of The Last Song in 2009 before embarking on an on-again-off-again relationship. 

They were initially engaged in June 2012 before calling it off in September 2013. They later reconciled in 2016.
