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.

Divorce aside . . . as I do not want to make a comment on it. I just want to mention that the entire family is white trash.

This takes him back to his achy breaky heart days. He at least gets paid any time someone downloads it on iTunes. By the way, worst karaoke song of all time.

He's a nasty piece of work. He cheated on her from day one and has a history of infidelity. Couple that with a bad temper, weird religious beliefs and a narcissistic personality and you get Hillbilly Hypocrite. Hooray for Tish!

Billy Ray wonder what became of your son in Texas growing up knowing his daddy got two chicks knocked up at the same time, he is not a multi millionaire or famous I guess that's why you don't care?

I'd call her trash before I'd call Billy Ray,she's been accused of cheating on him in the past and if you ever seen pics of her parading around with hardly any clothes on she's got the ugliest of tattoos all over her body like her son Trace and like Miley. Miley's taking after her mother not her dad. Both are trash,I'd say Billy Ray should be glad to be rid of them both!
