E! News confirms that Billy Ray Cyrus and wife of 19 years Tish Cyrus are officially calling it quits. However, this isn’t the first time the couple has had marital issues. It’s no wonder that daughter Miley Cyrus is up in arms about this. E! News reports that Billy Ray tried filing for divorce for the first time back in 2011, but apparently the couple tried to give things another shot. So, apparently this is round two for them.

Concerning the divorce, Tish tells TMZ News:
This is a personal matter and we are doing what is in the best interest of our family… We ask that you respect our privacy at this time.
TMZ.com also reports that she claims full legal custody over their youngest daughter and minor of the family, Noah (13), after citing “irreconcilable differences” in her divorce documentation.This time around, it seems things are different… and permanent. “Billy Ray’s soon-to-be ex is also requesting spousal support and wants him to cover attorney fees. The date of the spouse’s separation is listed as “to be determined.”
But, how is Miley and the rest of the family taking the divorce?

Apparently, not well. Yesterday Miley publicly lashed out at her father over Twitter. But, why now?
@billyraycyrus since your text and email obviously aren't working would you like to talk like this?

A source says there may be some unresolved tension between Billy Ray and Miley ever since her parents’ first attempt at divorce. Back when Miley starred with her father in Disney show Hannah Montana, Billy Ray told GQ magazine that he “blamed” the show for “destroying” his family. Ouch, that must sting. Sounds to us like a pretty harsh accusation, especially from father to daughter.
