Miley Cyrus’ parents are getting a divorce. Billy Ray Cyrus is ending his marriage to Tish, his wife of more than 19 years. The country singer first filed for divorce more than two years ago but withdrew the petition in March 2011 after the pair reconciled.
Billy Ray filed his papers in Nashville while Tish filed her own divorce petition in LA.
“This is a personal matter and we are working to find a resolution that is in the best interest of our family,” Tish said in a statement. “We ask that you respect our privacy at this time.”
It seems things may be a bit rocky between Billy Ray and his daughter Miley as well. Earlier today, the “We Can’t Stop” singer tweeted, “@billyraycyrus since your text and email obviously aren’t working would you like to talk like this?”
Tish and Billy Ray married in 1993 and have three children together — Braison, Noah and Miley. Tish has two kids from a previous marriage, Trace and Brandi, who Billy Ray adopted. He also has a son from a previous relationship, Christopher.
