Tish Cyrus reveals the real reason she filed for divorce from Billy Ray Cyrus after 28 years of marriage
Billy Ray Cyrus, however, seems to have moved on and has looked solid with Firerose, his new blonde girlfriend
NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE: Tish Cyrus revealed that the sudden downfall of Billy Ray Cyrus' singing career took a bitter toll on their 28-year marriage and even wrecked his relationship with his pop star daughter, Miley Cyrus. Tish filed for divorce for the second time in July 2010 to end her marriage with Billy, now 61, but later withdrew it as it would have hurt his chances of a comeback, as per Radaronline.
"Tish first filed on her own in 2013, but Billy begged her to stay, knowing a split would keep him away from his best chance for a sustained comeback — Miley," a source told Radaronline. Billy rose to fame after his 1992 hit 'Achy Break Heart' became a crossover success. After that, his career languished until 'Old Town Road', his duet with rapper Lil Nas X, topped the charts in 2019. Nevertheless, a friend says his brief resurgence signified the end of his career. The couple eventually filed for divorce for the third time, with Tish citing "irreconcilable differences" as the cause for the split.
"Then the pandemic hit and Billy Ray's plans for a big concert tour crashed, and he was bitter about it," confided Billy's close friend. The friend added that the main reason behind the divorce was not his affair with another woman, but the fact that Tish believed her ambitious husband cared more about his career comeback than his family.
Five months after Tish filed for divorce, Billy Ray was already with Firerose, and the two are dropping hints that a wedding may be on the way. Billy Cyrus recently posted photos with his new blonde girlfriend, who was wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring. Although the two have remained silent in the face of speculations, Billy Ray teased their upcoming collaboration song 'Time', which led some to believe it was all part of his attempt to make a comeback.
Tish Cyrus filed for a divorce for the third time on April 6, 2022. According to court documents obtained by Us, Tish, 54, and the “Achy Breaky Heart” singer have not lived together in over two years and have no minor children. She also requested an "equitable division and distribution" of all marital assets, as well as separate property.
A restraining order has also been issued for their marital property, which prohibits both of them from transferring assets or concealing them and requires them to refrain from harassing or slandering each other in front of their children.
The couple shares 5 children, 29-year-old pop star Miley Cyrus, Brandi Cyrus, 34, Trace Cyrus, 33, Braison Cyrus, 27, and Noah Cyrus, 22.
