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.

Maybe Miley Cyrus is just tired of doing the show. so she and her dad Billy Ray are showing their protest. Her latest album is doing very strong in sales and is outdoing her stint on Disney. And Disney's demands for them to be on 12 or 18 more shows is ridiculous. They just don't want to do the show anymore. Miley wants to have her own identity and not be known as Hannah Montana, her show's character. Don't those producers understand that?

The only talent Billy Ray has is exploiting his teen daughter. They were soooo boring as hosts of the Country Music Awards. He should be ashamed of creating this disaster, no role model. The child is being treated like an adult. She is probably more adult than he is. And the public for making them such a phenomenon. I hope people will shun Billy now and put him back in the barn where he belongs.

This is a bad idea for her because she's not a good singer and acting was probably her last shot at something. Now they found something in her throat area that might stop her from singing yay! but who knows if thats true hollywood never confesses to anything even if you got proof they don't care you can get away with anything over there especially if you're a celebrity. And isn't this illegal anyway whats daddy going to say about this. its like all the bad stuff only happens to her and not to any other young celebs damn didn't she get the memo thats its cool to be good now :)
