According to MSNBC.com, Miley Cyrus’ mom Tish was having an affair with rocker Bret Michaels, explaining why Billy Ray Cyrus filed for divorce on October 27, 2010.
TMZ posted photos of a distraught-looking Tish Cyrus being comforted by her kids hours after Billy Ray Cyrus filed for divorce, looking very much the victim. So did Billy Ray Cyrus deliver a blow that she didn’t seen coming, and is she really the bad guy here?
According to MSNBC.com, Billy Ray Cyrus wasn’t just upset over Tish having an affair with Bret Michaels; she reportedly had at least one other fling (talk about an achy-break-heart that just can’t understand; let’s hope it doesn’t blow up and kill that poor man!). The affair allegedly started while Bret Michaels was working with Miley Cyrus on the duet “Nothing to Lose” as the rocker became close to the whole family.
Tish was spotted at a Bret Michaels show in L.A., and he allegedly asked her production company to help him turn his book “Roses & Thorns” into a movie. These occurrences might make it seem like just a professional relationship, but a source insists that it turned into something more.
On Bret Michaels’ side, Access Hollywood is reporting that a rep for the rocker also insists that the allegations are not true, stating that Bret Michaels isn’t that type of person (we’re talking about a guy who dated multiple women on a reality show, after all). Billy Ray Cyrus cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. Tish definitely looks blind-sided in photos, however, so if he knew something was up, he might not have revealed his knowledge to her until the day the divorce papers were filed and served. It’s hard to say just want went down, but a divorce is never easy for any family.
So what’s next for the Cyrus clan and their five kids? Could we see Billy Ray Cyrus or Tish looking for love on reality TV? Could this split really have something to do with the due disagreeing about Miley Cyrus’ new grown-up image? We may never know the cause of Billy Ray Cyrus’ achy breaky heart for sure, but every rose has its thorn, and it might have just taken 17 years of marriage before he finally got pricked by it.
