Miley, 26, is said to be feeling ‘a bit disappointed’ that Liam, 29, filed for divorce ‘so quickly’ after their split was announced earlier this month.
There also seems to be little chance of a reconciliation, as the Australian actor wants to put his failed marriage behind him.
‘Liam is just so done with it. There is no turning back and he knows he wants to move on,’ claimed the source.

Meanwhile, New Idea also reported on Monday that Liam, who is based in the U.S., is considering moving back to Australia permanently for a ‘fresh start’.
‘Liam has been thinking long and hard coming back home. It will do him good to be away from the Hollywood scene and Miley’s network,’ an insider claimed.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Miley and Liam for comment.
It comes after The Sun claimed that Liam’s family has been begging him to ‘cut off all contact’ with the Can’t Be Tamed singer.

A source said: ‘Miley and Liam both keep saying the word “separated”, not “divorcing”, which has his family really worried they’re leaving the door open to get back together in the future.
‘[Their marriage] has been toxic for way too long. They’re not meant to be together.’

A representative for Miley confirmed the split on Saturday, August 10.
They said in a statement: ‘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.’

While the pair didn’t confirm their break-up until this month, it’s believed they actually called it quits in June after ‘drifting apart’.
The last known footage of them together was from July 9 during a sighting in Solvang, California, but they looked decidedly unhappy.
Insiders have told Page Six that Liam was hoping to have ‘a normal, settled-down life’ but Miley was determined to return to her famously wild ways.

After announcing their split, allegations have sprung from both sides concerning the reasons for the demise of their marriage, including claims that Liam was abusing ‘certain substances’ and that Miley is ‘immature’.
Following their initial split in 2013 Miley famously shed her wholesome girl-next-door image, opting instead for sexually provocative outfits and outrageous behavior, culminating in her notorious appearance at the VMAs with Robin Thicke.
After toning down her behaviour when they first reunited in 2016, sources claimed that the return to ‘old Miley’ had caused serious issues for Liam.

Liam addressed the split on August 13, two days after pictures of Miley kissing Brody Jenner’s ex-wife Kaitlynn Carter in Italy were splashed across the tabloids.
He shared a photo to Instagram of a beach at sunset alongside a brief caption addressed to his fans.
He wrote: ‘Hi all. Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward… Peace and Love.’
Miley and Liam married last December in her native Tennessee after an on-off romance that began when they co-starred in the 2010 movie The Last Song.

Meanwhile, Miley recently released a break-up ballad titled Slide Away, in which she sings about drug and alcohol use and moving on.
The telling chorus appears to hint that Liam will relocate to Australia, as she repeats: ‘So won’t you slide away? Back to the ocean, I’ll go back to the city lights.’
Lyrics also allude to their younger years, as she sings, ‘Move on, we’re not 17 / I’m not who I used to be / You said that everything changed / You’re right, I’m grown now.’
