Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus’ divorce documents have been revealed, showing the Australian actor has hired one of the top lawyers in Hollywood to bat in his corner.
Filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday, as he made the first play in the legal dissolution of his marriage to Miley, Laura A Wasser was revealed to be Liam’s attorney as he ended his union with the singer.
The two announced they were separating last week, with Miley taking off to Italy and being spotted kissing Kaitlynn Carter, while Liam lay low in Australia with brother Chris Hemsworth.
Now the documents he filed alongside Wasser have revealed the celebrity couple will keep their individual earnings and assets due to an iron-clad prenuptial agreement.
The two are said to be worth up to £300million, with multiple properties bought between the two successful stars.
Liam cited irreconcilable differences for the split, following their marriage on 23 December, 2018.
However the date of their separation has been kept under lock and key, listed as ‘TBD’ (to be determined) on the legal document.
The actor is asking the court not to award either of them any spousal support either, as he cited the prenup signed before they tied the knot.
Behind him is a powerhouse lawyer Wasser, who has represented the likes of Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie in their respective separations from Amber Heard and Billy-Bob Thornton. She also repped Kim Kardashian when the reality star split from Kris Humphries after their infamous 72-day marriage, and Britney Spears in her split and resulting custody battle with Kevin Federline.
While some of her previous celebrity clients went through lengthy legal squabbles (such was the case with Kim and Kris after he called their marriage ‘fraudulent’), Liam and Miley have no children together, therefore, things should be smooth sailing.
The two were married at Miley’s Nashville home over Christmas during an intimate ceremony.
‘It was a really special day. It was pretty much just immediate family,’ Miley said of the special day, attended by the couple’s close family.
She added: ‘I feel really happy and really fortunate to be with such a great person.’
It all ended after Liam and Miley announced their split earlier this month.
A statement from Miley’s reps last Sunday read: ‘Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is whats 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.’
