The battle rages on between Miley Cyrus and her former in-laws following her split from Liam Hemsworth earlier this year.

A few weeks back at a press conference in Madrid, Cyrus’ ex sister-in-law Elsa Pataky (wife of Chris Hemsworth) said she reckons Liam “deserves much better” than Miley.

While the singer has yet to respond to the diss, sources say she still cares deeply about what the Hemsworth family thinks of her.

A friend of Miley’s told Woman’s Day: “Elsa saying she wasn’t good enough for Liam will hurt her hard.”

Despite their 17-year age gap, Elsa and Miley shared a close bond during the decade she was with Liam.

The gals appeared to be rather tight, frequently going on vacays together and enjoying many a night out.

Following the couple’s split, Liam reportedly spent time cooling off in his native Byron Bay with Chris, Elsa and the rest of the fam.

It is unclear if Cyrus has had any contact with her former in-laws since the divorce.
