Brody Jenner’s joke about Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth split falls flat as pop star responds

Brody Jenner and Miley Cyrus

She came in like a wrecking ball.

Miley Cyrus didn’t waste any time responding after Brody Jenner made a joke about the singer’s recent split from husband Liam Hemsworth.

Cyrus and Hemsworth’s breakup was revealed on Saturday, shortly after Cyrus was photographed kissing Jenner’s ex, Kaitlynn Carter, in Italy.

Jenner then joked to a friend on Instagram Sunday, “Pics of Liam and I holding hands on the beach coming soon,” as seen in screen grabs of the conversation shared to social media.


Cyrus replied with a comment of her own: “@brodyjenner go take a nap in your truck and cool off #HotGirlSummer.”

The conversation played out in the comments section of an Instagram photo shared by Jenner that shows the actor on a Malibu beach. The commenting began when Jenner’s co-star on “Hills,” Brandon Thomas Lee, wrote, “Let’s round this scandal out and post a pic of us making out.”

A rep for Cyrus, 26, told People in a statement over the weekend that the “Malibu” singer and Hemsworth had “agreed to separate” after less than eight months of marriage.

Cyrus then posted an Instagram photo Sunday featuring a cryptic message about “change.”

“Don’t fight evolution, because you will never win,” Cyrus captioned the photo showing her on a mountain. “Like the mountain I am standing on top of, which was once under water, connected with Africa, change is inevitable.”
