I guess the limelight got the best of the both of them. From what I can understand, Tish is officially Miley's manager. They probably didn't see "eye to eye" on the current direction of Miley's career and Billy Ray's seems to be overshadowed by Miley's success. Fame and wealth doesn't always bring out the best in everybody. Operating behind the scenes as a business woman, wife and mother within a family business can take its toll on close interpersonal relationships. Billy Ray is still "fine as wine" and probably wanted to explore other "intimate" options. Good luck to the both of them.

Here we go..... now they can begin fighting over who gets more of Miley's money - And I think "Tish" is gonna change her name again.... to "Dina". Ought to be fun.

Who gets to keep turning the 9-year-old into some kind of pre-sexed nightmare?

Not at all surprised. Her dad seems pretty liberal regarding teen sexual exploitation, while mom seems to be more conservative. I imagine their views differed on these matters, and a split was inevitable. It's a shame, but too late for Milely, hopefully not too late for the other children. Maybe they can finish growing up without Dad's show business, liberal, Hollywood influence.

Well, Miley will latch on to whichever parent let's her get away with the most and I think that's Billy. He's been fine with everything she's done so far and I'm betting it's going to get a lot better.
