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.
has back-door'd her way into the 7-figure range ... 'cause the former MTV star tells TMZ she's a bona fide millionaire.
The 22-year-old just called in to "TMZ Live" to discuss her crush on Charlie Sheen
... when we asked her straight up if her foray into the world of adult entertainment has turned her into a millionaire.
But Farrah's swollen bank account isn't just from the sex tape -- we broke the story, she scored in the high 6-figures when she sold her sex tape to Vivid Entertainment. But she's also locking down endorsement deals ... and collecting checks for public appearances.
Bottom line ... the Kim Kardashian
Sex Tape Playbook sure as hell worked for Farrah.
is stable and doing OK ... but she's dealing with some pretty heavy issues, including the fact that she hasn't dealt with Michael Jackson
's death -- this according to sources connected with the Jackson family.
Our sources say Paris -- who's currently receiving psychological help at UCLA Medical Center -- has indeed felt bullied, but NOT by schoolmates. We're told Paris has had an obsession with comments people leave about her on social media and websites -- and the negative comments "really get to her." Our sources say she currently does not have access to her phone or the Internet, so the problem is temporarily solved.
Paris, one source says, is a "rebel." We've learned Paris almost got expelled from school after punching a student who "talked smack about her father."
We're told Debbie Rowe
has expressed deep concern about some of the friends Paris has been hanging with -- friends who she believes have been a bad influence.
And there's this ... we're told the shrinks who have been helping Paris believe she has not really gone through the grieving process over her dad's death. In other words, a lot of emotional upset has been building for nearly 4 years.
We're told when Paris gets out of UCLA ... she and Debbie Rowe are going away together for 6 to 8 weeks so she can get better. Our sources say Debbie feels very strongly it's important to get her the hell out of L.A. for the summer.
A photog (not TMZ) got into a fight with Carey Hart
Wednesday night in Malibu ... which ended with cops, EMTs and lots of after-the-fact taunting.
Hart and his wife Pink
were at the Malibu Country Mart when the photog allegedly started snapping pics of Pink changing their kid's diaper ... and that set Carey and his buddy off.
You see Carey's friend stomp on the photog's foot and then kick his camera to the ground. The photog claims he also got kicked in the balls for good measure.
Once cops left ... the photog goes off on Carey and his friend.
So we gotta ask ...
is involved in a full on textual relationship with Charlie Sheen
, TMZ has learned -- and the two are now planning to hook up in person.
TMZ has obtained text messages that show the "Backdoor Teen Mom" porn star first reached out to Sheen back in May saying she hopes to meet Sheen if she can score herself a role on "Anger Management."
Farrah even took the initiative ... and asked Sheen out on a date -- either a parent playdate with their kids ... or an adult get together for some coffee.
Sheen's response: "Coffee is for amateurs and grandma."
He also said he's down to meet up ... because ... well, he's probably a big fan of her work.
Farrah followed up with Sheen and asked him to an event she would be attending with some "porn star ppl" ... but Sheen wasn't able to attend.
We're told they have stayed in touch ... and are trying to work out a date to see each other ASAP, but they're both busy with work ... and kids ... and porn.
Stay tuned ...
It's a shocking testament ... Michael Jackson
-- who amassed hundreds of millions of dollars during his storied career -- needed the "This Is It" tour so he could afford a house for his children.
During the wrongful death trial Wednesday afternoon ... AEG honcho Randy Phillips
told the jury about an emotional meeting he had with MJ around Halloween, 2008. Phillips said a tearful Jackson told him his 3 kids were living "like vagabonds" -- shuttling from a Las Vegas rental to the Bel Air Hotel in L.A.
Phillips said Jackson wanted a home the family could call their own, and needed the "This Is It" tour to make enough money to realize that dream.
Phillips said the meeting was so emotional, both he and Jackson cried.
But get this ... the next day Phillips met MJ again, and the singer revealed the home he wanted to buy --- a 40,000-square-foot estate with a $93 million price tag. Phillips told MJ he thought it was ridiculous to blow his wad on the property.
MJ eventually settled on renting the house where he died.
says he's not surprised that ex-MLB star Dwight "Doc" Gooden
is trash talking him ... telling TMZ, Gooden is still bitter because Michael recently tried to get him to go back to rehab.
Michael -- who was on "Celebrity Rehab" with Gooden in 2011 -- tells us, "I am sorry that Dwight is in such a bad place. He used to stay in touch with me but he fell off the wagon and into his dugout mode."
Michael is lashing back after Gooden told Jim Rome
that he believes Michael is responsible for Lindsay Lohan
going off the rails.
Michael is obviously upset, adding, "I am surprised he said that, but maybe it's because I work in the recovery business and I recently tried to get him to go into treatment."
He adds, "I guess he isn't throwing strike outs as much as striking out himself. Just another wild pitch! I hope he gets well."
clearly knows how to compartmentalize his life ... because he hit the town Tuesday night in low fashion, attending the premiere of True Blood, Season 6.
The 16-year-old and his GF, Remi Alfalah
, were flanked by 3 bodyguards as they left the ArcLight in Hollywood.
People inside the screening tell us ... they were "touchy-feely" and seemed happy. Almost everyone was dressed up -- except Prince, which either makes him a slouch or a baller.
Prince seemed annoyed when photogs asked him about his sister, Paris
... specifically how he felt about the possibility that Debbie Rowe
could become her guardian.
Eat your heart out, David Hasselhoff!!!
For the first time in her life, Mama June
splashed around in the Atlantic Ocean ... during a family vacation to Tybee Island in Georgia this week.
June posed for some Baywatch-inspired photos ... helped bury Uncle Poodle in the sand ... all while keeping an eye on Honey Boo Boo
, who went crazy with an inner tube.
After the outing, June facebooked about her day in the waves ... writing, "Omg had a blast on tybee today a first time ever at a beach for pumpkin katilyn and alana and my first time going in the ocean."
TMZ has obtained the emergency call made from the Lost Hills Sheriff's Dept. to the L.A. County Fire Dept. on June 5 ... reporting that Paris Jackson
had "OD'd on 20 Motrin and cut her arm with a kitchen knife."
During the call, the Sheriff's Dept. tells Fire that Paris is "awake and breathing."
The Fire Dept. also asks the Sheriff's Dept. if they want Fire to "stage" -- which is shop talk for "waiting" until the Sheriff's Dept. deems the situation safe to enter.
The Sheriff's Dept. told Fire they didn't have to "stage" because it was not a dangerous situation.
The call was made after Paris herself contacted a suicide hotline.
We broke the story
... Paris was taken from the family's Calabasas home by stretcher at around 2 AM on June 5 ... and an ambulance rushed her to a nearby hospital.
She was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold for 72 hours at Children's Hospital in L.A. She was moved Sunday to the UCLA medical center for further psychiatric evaluation ... the same place her father died 4 years ago this month.
's family has circled the wagons ... with many family members expressing outrage at the prospect Debbie Rowe
could become Paris Jackson
's legal guardian ... sources connected with the family tell TMZ.
We broke the story ... Debbie has not made any move to become Paris' guardian after last week's suicide attempt, but she's amenable if Paris wants it
. As we reported ... Paris is having trouble connecting with grandma Katherine, and that's one of the reasons she's established a bond with Debbie over the last few months.
Our sources say ... members of the family believe Debbie's motivation is to put herself in the public eye, as evidenced by her statement to the media after the suicide attempt. As one source said, "If her intentions were pure she'd be speaking to the family."
We're told the family will fight Debbie "tooth and nail" if she attempts to secure guardianship.
The criticism is puzzling, because Debbie has stayed out of the spotlight for years, and her statement about Paris had nothing to do with guardianship -- it was merely confirming TMZ's story that Paris had attempted suicide.
Also interesting ... the family is not suggesting Debbie's motivation is money.
The judge in the guardianship case is currently reviewing Katherine's guardianship to determine if she's able to properly care for MJ's 3 kids.
