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.

I think it's terrible that he blamed his daughter for the dissolution of his marriage. Obviously there were some issues that needed to be worked out and although Miley's fame may have been the factor that brought those cracks to the surface, it's a lot of responsibility that he is putting on her and deflecting off of himself and his wife's.

I think she got rich and just wants a boy toy now, and not a husband.

Asking her Dad if he wants to hash things out on Twitter since his text and emails don't work, sounds like a threat to put him on blast on Twitter. Miley's a little bitch! He's the father! Who does she think she is? Like he has to answer to her! Get over yourself Miley!

Lots of stupid opinons posted here. Since none of us live with them or even know them at all, it is stupid to do so. It is too bad, but they did give it an honest try to have lasted 19 years. Hope neither feels the need to get down and dirty before all is final and after either.

It is the disgusting tattoo on this women's back. My husband would leave me if I looked like that from the back.

this mother has the ugliest , most disgusting tattoo on her back. Do you think that is the reason for their divorce?
