The report goes on to say: 'They've become quite good friends. She's there to take his mind off things and she's been an excellent person to turn to for advice.

'She's in Europe at the moment and feels bad she's jetted out during the worst of it for Liam, but even so, she's been keeping in touch via text.'

According to her Instagram, the actress has been hiking in the Swiss Alps this week with a male companion. 

Prior to that, at the start of August, she was on holiday in Greece.

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Isabel Lucas and Liam Hemsworth for comment. 

It comes after Liam and Miley announced that they had split last week.  

The couple, who have dated on-off for 10 years, stunned fans when they revealed they had split after just seven months of marriage.

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 California, but they looked decidedly unhappy.

Liam broke his silence on Tuesday, two days after pictures of Miley kissing Brody Jenner's blogger ex-wife Kaitlynn Carter were revealed.
