The mother of pop singer Miley Cyrus has filed for divorce from her father, Billy Ray Cyrus.
Multi-platinum selling country singer Billy Ray, 51, is best known for his worldwide hit single Achy Breaky Heart. He marred Leticia ‘Tish’ Finley in December 1993 and the couple had three children together – Miley, now 20, Braison, 19, and Noah, 13. Billy Ray also adopted Brandi and Trace, his wife’s two children from her first marriage.
According to TMZ, Tish has cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for the split after 19 years of marriage. She has asked for full custody of Noah, alimony, and payment of her legal fees.
Tish Cyrus told TMZ, “This is a personal matter and we are working to find a resolution that is in the best interest of our family.”
Miley Cyrus is best known for her role in teen comedy-drama Hannah Montana.
Billy Ray initially filed for divorce three years ago, saying Miley’s fame had affected the family, but later dropped the petition.
