Billy Ray Cyrus divorcing, seeks custody

Miley Cyrus’ parents Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish are divorcing after 17 years of marriage. Country singer-turned-actor Billy Ray and Tish — real name Leticia — were considered one of Hollywood’s happiest couples, having spawned television and music superstar Miley, 17, as well as 16-year-old Braison and Noah, ten. Billy Ray also has two adopted stepchildren and a son from a past relationship. In the divorce papers filed Tuesday, Cyrus seeks to “share the care, custody and control” of the three minor children he has with Tish. The papers cite “irreconcilable differences” as the reason behind the split. On the day the papers were filed, Billy Ray posted lines from Psalm 91 on his Twitter account: “He will cover you with his feathers and under his wings you shall take refuge. Truth will be your shield and buckler.”

    Natasha I totally disagree. If a couple cannot work then they cannot work. The worst thing for them to do is to try and ‘stay together for the children’. The only thing I hope happens here is that they have mutually decided to split up and that both parents are mature enough to not turn the children against the other parent. Just don’t play the he said she said game with the kids.

    That’s very sad news. It explains why Miley’s so messed up, though. She sees relationships don’t last, not even her parents so she’s slutting around. It’s what a lot of teen girls do in the face of divorce.

    Hey Billy-Bob, citing the bible doesn’t change the fact that your daughter’s the spawn of satan. She’ll probably use the divorce as context for yet another stupid, slutty song.

    As far as I’m concerned, if you want to make the world a better place, you stuff that entire family into a rocket and fire them off into the sun.
