Miley Cyrus’ parents Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus file for divorce
Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife Tish are heading down the path to divorce once again, after Tish Cyrus filed dissolution papers Thursday in L.A.
It’s not the first time in their 19-year marriage that Miley Cyrus’ parents have eyeballed divorce: In October 2010, Billy Ray filed, only to withdraw his petition five months later.
Tish, who says she doesn’t want her maiden name back, is seeking spousal support, payment of attorney’s fees legal and physical custody of daughter Noah Cyrus, 13, the only one of their five kids who’s still a minor, according to documents obtained by TMZ.
“Irreconcilable differences” was cited as the reason for the split, with the date of separation to be determined.
[Update, 12:05 p.m. June 14: Billy Ray also filed for divorce on Thursday, in Nashville, according to documents obtained by E! News.]
The couple released separate but nearly identical statements to People, calling the divorce petitions a “personal matter” to be resolved in the “best interest of our family.”
It would be a second divorce for Billy Ray, whose first marriage ended in 1991. He and Tish married in 1992.
