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.

"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.
