Billy Ray

FURIOUS after DJ Asks

About Divorce

11/12/2010 2:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Billy Ray Cyrus stormed out of an unaired radio interview this week after the DJ tried to ask Billy about his divorce ... and TMZ has obtained audio from the emotionally charged exchange.

Billy Ray Cyrus Divorce:
It all went down on Tuesday during an interview for the "Woody & The Wake-Up Call" show on WCOL in Nashville -- when Billy scolded the host Woody Johnson for even trying to ask about his marriage.

As he made a beeline for the exit, Billy can be heard lashing out at Woody -- saying he was, "very rude" ... and that he "should be disgusted."

The full interview is set to air on Monday -- but we gotta ask...

The public does not have a right to know about the personal life of entertainers. If they want to talk about it, fine. If they don't, also fine. The price of being an entertainer shouldn't be to lose your personal life.

Cyrus obviously came on the show to talk about certain things. The DJ made a mistake trying to get something very personal and obviously very painful out of him that was not on the agenda. Cyrus reacted emotionally to it, just proving that he's human. He's also obviously not the sort of guy who runs around gabbing about such things every time he sees a microphone - he's kept his family life pretty private, even with Miley's fame.

This is just as s***my as those tv reporters who shove microphones in people's faces after a disaster, saying things like "How did you feel seeing your house explode and your entire family blown to bits?".

It goes without saying that they'd ask, but he has a right to not answer if he doesn't want to talk about it.
