Exes Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth avoid awkward run-in at WME Pre-Oscars party weeks after finalizing their divorce

LIAM Hemsworth ditched a pre-Oscars bash early to avoid a run-in with ex-wife Miley Cyrus — but still had to party with her parents.

The Australian hunk was spotted without new girlfriend, Gabriella Brooks, at the WME bash in Beverly Hills on Friday night, meters away from Miley’s mom and dad, Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus, in an awkward awards season moment.

Liam avoided chatting with his former in-laws and made a swift exit before Miley arrived with her entourage.

A guest at the exclusive party told The Sun: “Billy Ray and Tish arrived very early followed by Liam who kept his distance at the bar while they sat in a booth nearby, he was flying solo and drinking water, chatting to Vince Vaughn.

"He looked really bored as if he didn’t want to be there at all and was aware Miley was on her way to the party. Guests were talking about how she’d signed to WME this week so she had to show her face."

The partygoer revealed Liam decided to make an early exit at 10:30 pm, with Miley joining the party just an hour later minus boyfriend Cody Simpson.

She was seen leaving with a group of friends including fashion designer Jeremy Scott after midnight.

"Miley and Liam are clearly not in a place yet where they’re ok running into each other in public, but it's likely to happen a lot now she’s with the same management agency as him," the source added.

"She was in a very different mood to Liam, like she didn’t have a care in the world. She was singing and dancing with her crew at the party and even went on to the Chateau Marmont Hotel with her guy friends after 1am.”

The pair's near run-in comes after a judge granted their divorce in January.

According to TMZ, the former couple's divorce passed quickly because the couple don't share any children together.

The judge was also able to make the decision quickly because there was already a pre-nup in place and the duo had agreed that Miley would keep the pets.

Miley and Liam split six months ago after less than a year of marriage, with 27-year-old Miley causing shockwaves when she quickly moved on with Kaitlynn Carter.

The pair first started their rocky on-off romance shortly after they met on the set of The Last Song back in 2009.

In June 2012, Miley and Liam announced their engagement but they split the following year.

They reconciled in 2016, with the couple plagued with break-up rumors throughout the next two years.

They had a surprise wedding in 2018, shortly after the Woolsey Fire that wrecked their old Malibu house – with the disaster said to have made Miley realise what is truly important.

However, in August last year the two confirmed that they were separating with TMZ reporting that the “divorce was marked by significant bitterness on both sides” when it was finalized in December.

Miley moved on with Kaitlynn – Brody Jenner’s ex-wife – but is now happily dating long time friend Cody Simpson.

Meanwhile, Liam has officially moved on with Australian model Gabriella Brooks.
