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 are from my hometown in Flatwoods, KY and you wouldn't believe how she used to cheat on him before he got big(back in the 80's. Yes, I know, I'm old I'm old) Most people back here are surprised that it lasted this long. Of course, Billy Ray was playing the bars a lot back then and I'm pretty sure that he wasn't quite an angel either.

He should have gone through with the divorce after there was that big to do about her cheating with Bret Michaels.

If both parents are sober & of a sound mind.. then why should one end up with visitation ??? Seems she is out for $$$$$$$$$$ !!

Please stop bagging on Miley people. Her parents have their issues, stop blaming her. It's disgusting. She's so young and of course she still has growing up to do. Leave it be and let the family sort out their issues.

This isn't just aimed at miley, how about instead of texts or emails you actually try a phone call? I think verbal communication works waaaaay better than textual conversations

She was a groupie that cheated with him on his previous wife. They broke up that family - I always knew she'd be cheated on too. Why else would she be dumping her 20 year marriage?
