When asked, the 43-year-old said: "My brother-in-law, well… after a relationship that you've dedicated ten years to, he's a little bit down, but he's coping well, he's a strong boy and he deserves the best."
It was a shocking move from Elsa, who was incredibly close to Miley when they were sisters-in-law, despite their 17-year age gap.
Aside from hanging out on many occasions, the girls even got matching tattoos at one point.
Miley and Liam announced their break up in August, only eight short months after their wedding.
Shortly after the split, when Miley was publically dating Kaitlynn Cater, Chris Hemsworth was reportedly so angry with Miley's behaviour that he warned her to stop "playing games" with his younger brother.
"They are the ones picking up the pieces," a source close to the situation told Radar Online in October. "And they’ll happily do anything to protect Liam, including shutting Miley out of Liam’s life."
According to reports, Miley was doing everything in her power to get Liam's attention after they broke up, like drunk-dialing him and posting loved-up PDA photos with her new boyfriend Cody Simpson on Instagram to make him jealous.
"She was drunk-dialing him for a while, so now she’s resorted to social media to get his attention," an insider told RadarOnline in October.
"This romance with Cody, supposed hospital visit and constant ‘look at me’ behaviour is all designed to push Liam’s buttons — and to be fair it’s always worked in the past because he’s a good guy who ultimately loves her.
"But now he’s just rolling his eyes and washing his hands of her, even as a friend, which of course is driving Miley nuts," the source continued.
Liam is now said to be dating 22-year-old Australian actress Maddison Brown.
