Fresh from his split from wife Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth, 29, is now reportedly dating fellow Australian Maddison Brown after the pair were spotted sharing a passionate kiss in New York City on Thursday.
The divorcee was seen engaging in some serious PDA with the 22-year-old Dynasty actress on the streets of the Big Apple in pictures obtained by Daily Mail.
The suspected new couple looked to be on a steamy date night which included drinks at the Flower Shop bar followed by a visit to the Alley Cat amateur theatre.
Liam and Maddison’s new romance
Liam and Maddison’s romantic evening isn’t the first time they’ve stepped out together.
Earlier that same day, the ‘inseparable’ duo were spotted hand-in-hand on a low-key lunch date at the West Village restaurant Sant Ambroeus.
“Liam was in dark sunglasses and kept them on for their lunch. When Liam and Maddison walked into the restaurant, he was holding her hand,” an onlooker reported.
“The entire restaurant turned heads when they arrived, but it was unclear if patrons knew who he was or were just staring because Liam had such a presence ... Liam asked for a table outside and had his arm around Maddison's back while they were escorted to their table,” they added.
Liam and the blonde beauty reportedly sat at their outdoor table at the restaurant for just over an hour, but fellow diners insist no lip-locking took place.
“Liam and Maddison were both smiling and laughing a little, but there was no kissing or PDA. They looked really great together and seemed very at ease with each other. It was romantic, but they seemed like friends enjoying each other's company,” an eyewitness told Us Weekly magazine.
If the photos are anything to go by, the smitten couple were saving their PDA for later that evening when they put on a very open and hands-on display.
At one stage a grinning Liam was snapped wrapping his arms around his new lady love and even cheekily nestling his face in her chest.
Who is Dynasty star Maddison Brown?
At the tender age of 16, the home-grown talent left her hometown of Sydney and headed to the bright lights of New York City to pursue her catwalk dreams before making the transition to the big screen.
She went on to prove her acting chops alongside Oscar winner Nicole Kidman in 2015’s feature film, Strangerland, followed by a role in the 2016 Aussie TV series, The Kettering Incident.
Then in 2018, Maddison landed the plum role of Kirby Anders in the Netflix drama Dynasty, a re-make of the iconic '80s soap opera of the same name.
And back in June, Maddison dropped some major hints about her feelings toward the Aussie hunk - and his older brother - during a raunchy game of ‘F***, marry, kill?’ on a radio show.
When faced with choosing between Liam and Chris on the Zach Sang Show, the star said she wouldn’t mind getting down and dirty with both Hemsworth siblings!
At the time, Liam was of course still married to Miley following their intimate at-home nuptials in December 2018.
Miley and Liam moving on
The news comes after it was recently reported that while Liam hadn’t officially begun seeing anyone he was ready to move on following his August split from 26-year-old Miley.
“He hasn't been dating anyone. But he's open to meeting people,” a source said of the Hunger Games star.
Liam filed for divorce from Miley several days after they called time on their eight-month marriage, after she was pictured kissing Kaitlynn Carter on a romantic holiday in Italy.
The “Slide Away” hitmaker has since ended things with the Hills: New Beginnings star, and is now loved up with another Aussie, Cody Simpson.
Miley was first snapped locking lips with the 22-year-old homegrown heartthrob on October 3, just two weeks after she called time on Kaitlynn.
Since then, Cody and Miley have flaunted their budding romance on social media, with the “Surfboard” singer penning poems and love songs for his lady and even visiting her during a recent hospital stay for tonsillitis.
Miley appears equally head-over-heels, calling Cody her ‘BF’ (aka ‘boyfriend’) on Instagram.
