Many celebrity gossip followers were surprised by yesterday's divorce announcement from Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus.
But sources say one person was aware this was coming a long time ago: Miley Cyrus.
“Miley knew about the divorce awhile ago and she’s been taking it really hard," a friend told Hollywood Life. "Pretty much at the same time, she broke up with [Liam Hemsworth], Hannah Montana was ending and then her parents’ marriage was falling apart."
Left: Tish Cyrus make her first appearance since her divorce goes public. Right: Miley grabs Liam by the hand.
In a quest for what this insider describes as "normalcy and structure" in her life, Miley got back together with Liam in September.
“She got super stressed out and that’s really when she started acting out more," says the source. "Plus, her parents really like him and so she’s trying to make it work. She’s just doing the best she can.”
More than ever, Miley will now be counted on to be the rock of her family. We don't always agree with her professional decisions, but we do wish her the best in overcoming this personal obstacle.
