Miley Cyrus’ parents are getting divorced after 17 years of marriage.
Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus have both cited irreconcilable differences in their papers, which were filed in Tennessee on Wednesday (10/27).
A joint statement from the parents read,
“As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for our family. We are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers.”
It seemed like it was coming down thepike for a long time. Friends of the couple say it was inevitable, one pal said:
“It was a long time coming. It is the best thing for both of them.”
The couple has three children together – Miley (17), Braison (16), and Noah (10). Tish also had two children from a previous marriage – Brandi and Trace – and Billy had a son, Christopher, from a relationship with Kristen Luckey.
So it seems quite a busy household!
