Miley Cyrus' parents Billy Ray and Tish getting divorced




As if growing up as a prematurely oversexualized hyperfamous pop star wasn't hard enough for Miley Cyrus, now her parents are getting divorced. It's a good thing that one episode of Hannah Montana taught Miley how to act when her dad starts dating again.

"As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for our family," Billy Ray and Tish told People in a statement. "We are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers."

The couple were married for 17 years and have four other children besides Miley. They filed in a Tennessee court Wednesday, citing irreconcilable differences. Maybe Tish couldn't reconcile the fact that 10 years ago, everyone made fun of Garth Brooks for trying out that alter ego Chris Gaines, and now Billy Ray looks just like him.
