Billy Ray Cyrus is recovering from a week of bad publicity and is looking to put things right with his daughter, he tells People magazine.
“It is all a learning process, and we thank everyone for their support and respect of our privacy as we sort through very important family issues," he says. "It is very important to me to work on mending my family right now."
The singer initially upset daughter Miley Cyrus with a GQ interview during which he said he was “scared for her” and blamed her show, Hannah Montana, for the breakup of his family. Billy Ray was also set to appear on The View this week until Miley put a stop to it.
