Miley Cyrus’ mum files for divorce after 28 years of marriage
Tish, mother of popular American singer, and television personality, Miley Cyrus, has reportedly filed for divorce from her husband, country singing sensation, Billy Ray Cyrus, after 28 years of marriage.
54-year-old Tish filed the divorce in Tennessee last week citing irreconcilable differences, according to a Monday report from TMZ.
She also said that the couple have not lived together in more than two years.
The now 60-year-old “Achy Breaky Heart” singer and Tish married in 1993, and share five children: daughters Miley, 29, Noah, 22, and Brandi, 34, and sons Trace, 33, and Braison, 27.
Cyrus first filed for divorce in 2010 but announced five months later that he’d withdrawn his petition.
“I’ve dropped the divorce. I want to put my family back together,” the Hannah Montana star told The View at the time. “Things are the best they’ve ever been.”
Later in 2013, Tish filed for divorce that June, telling PEOPLE at the time: “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.”
The pair later said that they were able to work on their marriage through hard work and couples therapy.
“We both woke up and realized we love each other and decided we want to stay together,” they said in a statement in July 2013.
“We both went into couples therapy something we haven’t done in 22 years of being together, and it’s brought us closer together and really opened up our communication in amazing ways.”
