Billy Ray Cyrus filed papers to divorce Trish his wife of seventeen years. Billy Ray Cyrus is the father of Miley Cyrus who is the star of the Disney show “Hannah Montana”. Billy Ray Cyrus is looking for shared custody of the couple’s children and a split of the marital estate. Billy Ray Cyrus says irreconcilable differences led to the decision of divorce. Today, Billy Ray Cyrus has an “Achy Breaky Heart”
This breakup of the Cyrus family is in a word, a shame. The Cyrus couple had been married for seventeen years with beautiful children. Miley Cyrus has a successful television and singing career and Billy Ray Cyrus seemed to be a good father to Miley.
Lately, the public has seen a different side to Miley. She was no longer the sweet, beautiful child who played Hannah Montana on television. Miley Cyrus has been shown in revealing photographs since she was fifteen years old. She has followed in the steps of other young pop stars by revealing her sexuality to her fans at a young age. Maybe this comes from the trouble that has been brewing in the Cyrus home.
Not to mention, the time Billy Ray Cyrus had to spend away from home pushing Miley’s career and helping his teen daughter become a star at a young age. This time away from home obviously did nothing to keep his marriage with Trish going strong. It is a shame to see a successful teen girl fall from grace at the same time her family is falling apart.
There have been all kinds of news on the internet about Miley Cyrus losing her fans. Many fans of the cute little Hanna Montana see Miley as weirder every day and a teenager willing to reveal her sexuality. This divorce between Billy Ray Cyrus and Trish will do nothing to help the family. Divorce breaks the whole family apart and harms children, yes even teenagers.
Someday, we may learn the real reasons Billy Ray Cyrus filed for divorce of his wife Trish. For now, we speculate just like the whole world speculates. Maybe stardom was too much for the whole family to deal with. Maybe the changes in Miley’s life were too hard for the family to deal with. Regardless, this is another sad divorce in a Hollywood family. Billy Ray Cyrus is left with another “Achy Breaky Heart.” Nearly twenty years later, his song has become his life.
