Liam Hemsworth Turns To His Mother For Comfort After Split With Miley Cyrus

It's not been the best few days for Liam Hemsworth after finally confirming that his relationship with Miley Cyrus is over.

The actor sought comfort from the only woman who knows him best, his mother, on Monday night as the 23-year-old was seen leaving the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Los Angeles with his mum, Leonie.

Liam kept his head down after their evening dinner out, however it was obvious to see on Liam's face that the past few weeks have been tough on The Hunger Games hunk.

Their outing comes as it was claimed that Liam had been left 'mortified' by Miley's controversial performance at the MTV VMA's earlier this year.

The 20-year-old singer twerked against Robin Thicke while wearing nude latex underwear, in what was deemed a wholly inappropriate performance.

A source told RadarOnline.com: "'Miley and Liam were already pretty much broken up at that point, but when he saw her performance and the backlash it created, it was the nail in the coffin. That was all he needed to finally break up with Miley once and for all. He was embarrassed, disgusted and mortified by her performance."

On Monday, representatives for Miley and Liam confirmed that the pair have ended their engagement and their romance, after having dated for two years.

Liam proposed to Miley in May 2012, and at the time the'We Can't Stop' star was excited about her future with the Aussie heart-throb. "I'm so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam," she told People magazine at the time.

The pair first met on the set of the 2010 romantic drama The Last Song, and began dating not long after.

After news of the split has been confirmed, it seems Liam may already have another love interest on the horizon. He was seen getting close to Mexican actress Eiza Gonzalez, 23, as he partied at VIP club Bungalow in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

According to reports, Liam and Eiza left the club together at 2am.
