Miley Cyrus' parents Billy Ray and Tish had a huge fight before split
As hard as we try to encourage you to stay away from celebrity news and pursue more intellectual activities (like buying tickets to Skyline or assembling a zombie survival kit), we understand sometimes you want to know the gossipy stuff. Like there was a knock-down, drag-out fight between Billy Ray Cyrus and wife Tish right before they decided to get divorced.
The National Enquirer, which is often correct more than people would like to admit, says the pair started a screaming match because Billy Ray tried to ground daughter Miley for talking back to him. It seems the problem started when he found out Tish went behind his back and allowed Miley to go out.
"Billy screamed terrible things at Tish. Then he started kicking in the door," a source tells the tabloid. "Tish locked herself in her bedroom to escape Billy Ray's wrath. And he pounded on the door screaming: 'Come out here and talk to me, b----! You let everyone run wild when I'm not here! It's going to STOP!'"
That's a pretty vivid description of the catalyst for their divorce. Then again, looking at these two it may just as well have been an argument over hairspray, so believe this at your own risk. It would explain why Miley is reportedly feeling so guilty about the breakup, though.
