Parents of Miley Cyrus File for Divorce

by at .  Updated at . Comments

After 17 years of marriage, the parents of Miley Cyrus are getting a divorce.

Father Billy Ray is listed as the plaintiff in papers filed yesterday in Tennessee's Williamson Country Chancery Court. He cites "irreconcilable differences" as the basis for the split.

Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish Cyrus

"As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for our family," the couple said in a joint statement "We are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers."

Billy Ray and Tish have three children together - Miley, 17, Braison, 16, and Noah, 10 - while the former also adopted Trace and Brandi, the latter's kids from a previous relationship.

Miley is close to both her parents. Tish works as her manager, while Billy Ray has been known to come to his daughter's defense in the face of criticism, even once saying the world is counting on her. We wish this family the best.

This is very sad news. Miley, Noah, Braison, Billy Ray and Tish deserve our support at this time and maybe Billy Ray and Tish can work things out although I guess they have already tried. And critics/paparazzi - please give Miley a break now.

my mom and dad just got a divorce/separation after 17 years too but I'm only 16 and my little bro is 12 and now I'm starting to think my friend might be on to something lol Any way the funny thing is when they got married my mom got stung by a bee and 17 years later when she broke it off she got stung by about 17 bees lol (Karma?) well good luck all of you Cyrus'

Very sorry to hear-it...This sort of thing is hard enough to go through when it's private,so you can multiply and magnify the harshness when going through this in the public eye...Hope things are not beyond repair. They make a great couple. Best wishes and good luck Billy-Ray, Tish,and the entire Cyrus family...
Later all;Hollywood---out...

I Pray for you and your family during this hard time. Divorce is always a hard thing, and if this does happen (which I can't be sure of cause theres been many rumours) I will still be praying for you and your family to be able to deal with it.

Hopefully at some point,these two parents will be able to resolve their differences,and decide to hold it all together considering the fact that Miley is almost an adult, and there are minor children who still need their guidance as parents.
P.S.
Billy Ray was an overnight sensation with his music,yet he remained a quiet and reserved personality. Because Tish has been in his life for so long,hopefully they will be able to repair their differences.

Everything they've been thru together(no matter how strange) and now they don't get along anymore? I guess they list that as the reason but it doesn't really have to be that. What a waste of time after all those years. Plus he ruined his first marriage by carrying on with Tish.
