Miley Cyrus’ parents, Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish Finley Cyrus have announced they are divorcing after 17 years of marriage. The couple confirmed the news to PEOPLE magazine.
“As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for our family,” they said in a statement. “We are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers.”
Billy Ray and Tish have 5 children together: pop star Miley, 17, Braison, 16, and Noah, 10; Billy Ray also adopted Tish’s two children from a previous marriage, Trace and Brandi.
TMZ reports that Billy Ray was the one who pulled the trigger on the divorce proceedings, citing irreconcilable differences. He’s also asking for shared custody of their 3 minor children, and wants the court to “approve a parenting plan” to be signed by both Billy Ray and Tish.
