Miley Cyrus is putting a leash on her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, as his media blitz escalates.
“When Miley found out her father was scheduled to appear on The View on Wednesday she went nuts,” a source tells Popeater. "Only last week, Billy shot his mouth off in GQ, and now he planned to sit down with [Barbara and Whoopi] and talk more crap about his family. No way would Miley or her team let that happen.”
Billy Ray has used previous interviews to compare his daughter to Anna Nicole Smith, while blaming Disney and Hannah Montana for destroying his family.
“At first Miley defended her dad, wanting to believe he had been tricked into saying bad things by the magazine,” another source says. “But after she found out about his media trip to New York, no more excuses could be made.”
