Billy Ray Cyrus' Wife

Files for Divorce

6/14/2013 4:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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 don't really follow the Cyrus' that much, but here's hoping Noah will be ok. It's tough to be a teen, add to it a famous family with parents getting divorced and you're in for a potentially rough ride. I hope Billy and Tish are able to keep it civil for their kids sake.

Tish Cyrus has been cheating on her husband for YEARS and in Kentucky people have been saying shes a sex addict. Before Billy Ray hit it big Tish had group sex with several biker type guys because I happened to have been married to one of the four guys that night. So I do hope Billy Ray does not have to support that old slut forever

they only have 2 kids together-and have been apart since the first divorce filing so 19 years??? seems like maybe 12 or 13 years of actually being "married" maybe even less-you can bet when Smelly was pulling down the Disney cash they stayed married in fear that one or the other would get cut out of the money train-and look what they did to their daughter?? that's what happens when the stupid pop country fame stalker hooks up with the stripper gold digging band chasing skankk-so she married him what 6 months after Achy Breaky heart came out?? thought she cashed in that jack pot didn't she-probably knew him before that and was screwing the drummer-and now the world is cursed with the Smelly Circus and her constant barrage of twiiter self posted skannk selfies promoting her new career as a stripper for low end rappers and thug parties-sooo proud-sorry tish but the hore spawn doesn't fall from the tree-that's how mommy got her "lifestyle" must be how it's done

Obviously a spoiled ass bratt. Bet dad wishes he would've used a switch a few times, nothing wrong with demanding respect from insolent spoiled disrespectful bratty kids. In my opinion this is why there is no such thing as children respecting their parents these days.the good Lord made butts just for such purposes. My children would never publicly disrespect me in such a way. Not even my adult children.
