Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife of seventeen years Tish filed for divorce in Tennessee Court on October 26th. The couple, who have five children including Miley Cyrus, cite irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce.
The pair released a statement saying:
As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for our family. We are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers.
In the divorce papers, Billy Ray is seeking shared custody of their three minor children. Additionally, Billy Ray is seeking “equitable distribution of the marital estate” and for the court to approve a “parenting plan” that would need to be signed by both Tish and Billy Ray.
