Billy Ray Cyrus is getting divorced ... TMZ has learned.

Billy Ray's wife, Tish Cyrus, is citing "irreconcilable differences" in her filing.  Her decision to pull the plug on the marriage comes 3 years after Billy Ray filed for divorce but dropped it in an attempt to work things out.

Billy Ray and Tish have been married for 19 years and have 5 children, including, of course, Miley.  There's only one minor child left, Noah Cyrus, who is 13.  Tish is asking for full physical and legal custody, with visitation to Billy Ray.

Tish is also asking for spousal support, and she wants him to pay her attorney's fees.  The date of separation is listed as TBD.

Tish tells TMZ, "This is a personal matter and we are working to find a resolution that is in the best interest of our family. We ask that you respect our privacy at this time."

A few hours ago, Miley tweeted @billyraycyrus, "since your texts and email obviously aren't working would you like to talk like this?"

Interesting ... when Billy Ray filed the first time he had said Miley's fame compromised their family.

They claim to be Christians. If they were, they would know that all things are possible through Christ and that marriage can survive if they really wanted it to. Divorce is a cop out.

Good for her. Can you imagine being married to that? Of course Miley's fame compromised the family - it crushed her father's ego and he can't handle it.

Really Miley...confronting your father in a public place. That's totally ignorant. I bet you're arrogant, immature drama is the cause of the disruption in the family. Shame on you. Remember this...the bigger they are, the harder they fall. You are a bully, even to your mild-tempered father. Skum.

Who is the parent    

Miley is old enough to know she can't make this about her. I get it when young kids do this to their parents when they find out they are getting divorced but when adults do it is so frigging childish and annoying. For peetes sake not everything is ABOUT YOU!!!! as much as you would like it to be. And lastly Miley said she text and emailed well here is a thing TRY SEEING IN PERSON and/or CALLIING!

What? Neither Miley or Miley wannabe Dad can pick up a phone and chat? Neither can go over to the other's house, or meet somewhere for a meal? Talking about intimate family business over Twitter is the way to go? Yeah, I guess, if you want the whole world and every celeb gossip site and publication to print every last detail.
