Disney to Miley: Face the Music or Else!

9/22/2008 3:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Miley and Billy Ray Cyrus want off "Hannah Montana," and their conduct has triggered a war on the set.

Our spies on the set tell us Miley has bragged that she will get fired, making it clear she wants to focus on singing and not the show. For his part, Billy Ray has also made it clear that there is more money in singing than a Disney cable show. As a result, the father-daughter team has been showing up to the set ridiculously late, stalling production and infuriating cast and crew.

Emily Osment, who plays Lilly Truscott, used to be extremely tight with Miley. Now we're told Emily is so bitter she literally turns away from Miley after each scene. We're told Emily's dad got in a screaming match with Billy Ray, complaining he and Miley were unprofessional.

Family Guy Look-Alikes: Cick to view!Sources tell us Billy Ray has told people on the set that he and Miley will do 12 more episodes and then they are out. Disney was so pissed they called his agent, railing that Billy Ray and Miley were ingrates. Disney insisted that Billy Ray and Miley not only finish the 24 episode season -- but Disney was adding six more episodes.

To put it mildly, this set is far from the happiest place on earth.

Miley is a spoiled brat. Fire her, and let her fade away like most child stars do.

Incredibly ungrateful selfish and totally unprofessional. Don't they even realize that the Hannah Montana craze has already peaked and begun to fade?

Oh well, guess they'll get it when it's way, way too late.

Won't it be nice when Billy Ray and his bucktoothed spawn fade back into the oblivion they so richly deserve?

i don't think it's right that their cast members will be out of work because of them
it's kind of selfish.

Miley who? That's right...it won't be long now...this CHILD has gotten a little too big for her britches...we are used to seeing these little wanna-be's come up fast and fall even faster...she is no different...and we can all blame her lousy excuse for a father...what a lame example of parenting...they should both be ashamed of themselves and their very public bad behavior. Instead of being grateful for what they have in our ever worsening economy, they are the leaders of the "me first now" celebrity craze that has plagued our lives for way too long. Over it!

Hillbillies with money. Miley is a spoiled little brat and her daddy isn't showing her good manners and gratefulness.

Good job by MIley and her father. Disney is a bunch of pricks who will exploit as much as they can out of their child stars., Disney is nothing more than child pimps... anything for a quick buck... Stick it to them MIley and dad!!

Alright, so TMZ is expecting us to believe that Miley and Billy Ray are trying to getting fired off Hannah Montana. In the same week that Disney announces a movie deal with Miley for a Nicholas Sparks novel based movie.

Please don't expect people to be idiots, there are still some people that have minds of their own and don't believe everything they're told.
