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.

I never got the Hannah Montana thing anyway. She is one ugly kid. Just more white trailer trash like Britney and Jamie Spears.

People actually believe this crap?? I don't believe a word. People are always making stuff up about Miley to make people not like her anymore! If they didn't want to do it they would wait till their contract is over and leave, not try to get fired!

The person I feel most sorry for is Emily. That girl has much, much more acting talent than Miley. In a couple of years, Emily's acting career will take off, much like her brother Haley Joel's did a few years back.

Emily will be reaping in many rewards while Miley is going to languish. Who knows- maybe we'll see Em as a Bond Girl in a future 007 movie!

I call B.S. on this story. The media is so fixated on trying to ruin this girl's career. It's ridiculous the amount of crazy stories out there trashing her. :(

Wow, that's pathetic. They're both primadonnas.

Just let Disney fire her. Her supposed music career won't last long anyway. She'll fade just like those past musicans and bands...
