Miley Cyrus’ Parents Tish + Billy Ray Cyrus File for Divorce
Miley Cyrus’ parents, Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus, are headed for splitsville, a source reports. Married for 19 years, the couple has decided to file for divorce on the grounds of “irreconcilable differences.”
“This is a personal matter and we are doing what is in the best interest of our family. We ask that you respect our privacy at this time,” said a rep for the couple.
“As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for our family,” the couple told ET. “We are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers.”
Miley – who has suffered through her own fair share of relationship woes this year – has yet to reveal her thoughts on the matter, but the young pop star took to Twitter earlier today (June 13) to send her dad the following message:
@billyraycyrus since your text and email obviously aren’t working would you like to talk like this?

Yikes. Bear in mind that this isn’t the first time that Billy Ray and Tish have attempted to call it quits. They filed for divorce back in 2010 but wound up making amends a few months later.
