(CNN) - In the wake of his split from Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth has posted on social media wishing her the best.

The "Hunger Games" star put up a photo of what appears to be a beautiful sunset scene on a beach. It appeared on his official Instagram account early Tuesday.

The caption jumped right into the ending of his marriage of less than a year to the singer/actress.

"Hi all," Hemsworth wrote, "Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward."

Over the weekend People magazine reported that the couple, who married in December 2018 after an almost decadelong, on-again, off-again relationship, had broken up.

"Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time," a rep for Cyrus told the publication in a statement. "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."

CNN has reached out to representatives for the couple.

In his Instagram caption, Hemsworth, 29, also appeared to address a Daily Mail Australia story which had been picked up by other outlets quoting him as saying about the split, "You don't understand what it's like."

"This is a private matter and I have not made, nor will I be making, any comments to any journalists or media outlets," Hemsworth wrote. "Any reported quotes attributed to me are false. Peace and Love."
