Miley Cyrus' decision to release new music on her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth's birthday has sparked controversy.
On January 1, the 30-year-old singer surprised her followers on social media by announcing her latest song, "Flower."
"New year, new miles, new ankles. January 13 flowers," he wrote on Instagram and Twitter.
Cyrus shared a sneak peek of the tune, singing "I Can Love You Better Than You."
The clip will be released on January 13, which is Hemsworth's birthday. However, it's unclear if Cyrus chose the date on purpose or if it was just a coincidence.

"Oh, he's acting suspicious," a third yelled. "We love to watch!"
"She attracts Taylor Swift, I love her," writer Missy Antoine tweeted.
Meanwhile, others have suggested that Cyrus, 32, should move from her native Australia.
"She really needs to get over it, it's horrible," said one commenter, adding, "Did they break up 4 years ago? Why is he still giving her the time of day?"
"I love you girl, but leave this boy already," said another commenter.
"We'd rather be celebrating Liam's birthday than hearing this," one commenter wrote.
Cyrus and Hemsworth met on the set of The Last Song in 2009.
[Liam] has become my best friend in the whole world," Cyrus told Parade in 2010. "I love him. He really respects me for who I am because coming from Australia, he didn't really know me as the celebrity that I am here. I had to meet him on my terms and my way. He is I want to be. I had no preconceived notions about it."

“You fall in love with who you fall in love with; You can never choose,” says the Men's Fitness actor. "I think some people come with a little more baggage. I mean, look, we've been together for five years, so I don't think those feelings will ever change. And that's a good thing because it really shows me that it's. It was. It wasn't. .just one thing. It was and always will be a big part of my life."
Hemsworth added that Cyrus is a "free spirit" who will "always surprise people with what she does."

In a December 2020 interview with Howard Stern, Cyrus revealed the reason for the split.
"When I go home, I want someone to help me. I don't do drama or fight," the former Disney Channel star said before adding, "I really do and I really, really love it. And yet I always will." .
