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.

Billy Ray puts his daughter into show biz then blames her fame on the break down of his Family?! Maybe if Stage Daddy- Ray knew the meaning of balance he could have had it all! But everyone knew he was simply riding on HER fame to try to recoupe his own-epic failure! I just hope they ALL find the happiness they deserve!

Miley didn't hit the genetic lottery in the brains dept. her mother looks a bit loopy ad wild in pictures and Billy Ray is as stupid as the day is long.
Is it any wonder she's shaking her flabby ass for the cameras now?

Hard to see why she has stayed with him so long. He filed before - wonder what the problem was then. He is a jerk! Lucky for Miley - she looks like her mother. Hopefully she doesn't have her daddy's personality. Good luck to Tish. He needs to get rid of that stupid looking stuff under his bottom lip.

Father and daughter will most likely marry, now that Mom's out of the way. Isn't that what they do down south?

I'm actually sorry to hear the 'BAD NEWS"!!! Truthfully, I believe if this family was "FLAT BROKE" no one would be filing divorce petitions. The Cyrus' would be forced "OUT OF NECESSITY" to work out their differences. Perhaps, if the "BOTH OF THEM" would keep their noses out of their daughter's business -- THEY WOULD STILL HAVE A MARRIAGE!!! Miley is "GROWN" and entitled to make her own choices "FOR BETTER OR WORSE"!!! The both of them are somewhat attractive people and the opportunities to "FIND COMFORT" in the arms of other people can be overwhelming -- BUT THE PROBLEMS WON'T DISAPPEAR!!! I guess they simply got tired of trying to make their marriage work!!! Miley Cyrus was raised to "HONOR HER PARENTS"!!! Calling Billy Ray Cyrus out on Twitter is "STRAIGHT-UP DISRESPECTFUL"!!! When he's ready to talk -- HE'LL TALK!!! LET THE MAN HAVE HIS SPACE!!!

Just the look on his face tells you that he thinks he is 'all that'.....He was a one hit wonder with someone else's song and Travis Tritt had it right when he said he didn't have talent. He can thank Miley for his piggy back ride to the bank.
