Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish Cyrus to divorce after 28 years together


Tish Cyrus has filed for divorce from Billy Ray Cyrus after almost 30 years of marriage. Tish filed for divorce in Tennessee last week, according to court documents; it also notes that Tish and Billy Ray have not lived together since February 2020. Tish cited irreconcilable differences as the grounds for their divorce and is asking that the court equitably divide and distribute their marital assets and award her separate property.

This is not the first time either has filed for divorce from the other. In October 2010, Billy Ray filed before revealing the following year that he dropped the divorce. Then, in 2013, Tish filed for divorce.  The two spoke out about working on their relationship, saying: “We both woke up and realized we love each other and decided we want to stay together. We both went into couples therapy, something we haven’t done in 22 years of being together, and its brought us closer together and really opened up our communication in amazing ways. We’ve had rough times, but we both realized we didn’t want to be another statistic and wanted to make it work.”

The couple were married in December 1993, share five kids: Miley Cyrus, 29, Noah Cyrus, 22, and Braison Cyrus, 27, as well as Brandi Cyrus, 34, and Trace Cyrus, 33, who Trish gave birth to prior to their relationship. Billy Ray also has a son, Christopher, with his ex, Kristin Luckey.
