The Word: Tish Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus are divorcing
Insert your own “Achy Breaky Heart” joke here: Tish Cyrus has filed for divorce from country star Billy Ray Cyrus.
“This is a personal matter and we are working to find a resolution that is in the best interest of our family. We ask that you respect our privacy at this time,” she told People.
The Cyruses are parents to five children, including Miley Cyrus. Tish is requesting primary custody of their 13-year-old daughter Noah, with visitation for Billy Ray.
Billy Ray Cyrus first filed for divorce from Tish in 2010, but the couple later reconciled. “I want to put my family back together,” he said on “The View.”
Meanwhile, Billy Ray’s daughter Miley is prepping for her own wedding to Liam Hemsworth, but she’s also spending lots of time with her old friend Justin Bieber. Justin and Miley have a lot in common right now. They’re both pop stars. They both have on-again, off-again exes. They have very similar haircuts.
Maybe that’s why the two seemed to be getting closer this weekend. Justin’s leopard print Audi (or a leopard-print Audi. Who knows how many of those are around) was spotted leaving Miley’s house on Saturday. Later that evening, they met up again at Los Angeles’s Roosevelt Hotel, according to TMZ. After partying for a few minutes, they left together for parts unknown.
