    Aww, I feel bad for the children. It’s always very sad when parents divorce.
    People, please try to stay nice. I’m not a Cyrus fan either but now is not the time to attack this family.

    i always thought there was something odd about this couple. billy ray seems so down to earth and wise, and his wife seems the polar opposite. pushy stage mom, former rock star groupie with 2 kids before she met billy ray. then she got knocked up, and while billy ray had another woman knocked up…and he chose to stay with this broad. i hear she’s controlling and gets what she wants…but not in a good way. why am i calling her a broad? because she is miley’s manager and she is behind everything miley does. she is producing her movies, her show, her career choices, her music, etc. notice how when hannah montanna had just started miley and her dad were very close? as she grew up and started to become more reckless in her personal choices and ‘sexy’, she hasn’t been as solid with her father. its because her mother has been influencing her. something tells me her mother is not a very good rolemodel. she looks like she’s had some plastic surgery, is obsessed with her youth, and is living vicariously through her daughter. i’m not sure if miley knew this was coming, but the reason they lasted this long in a marriage is because they were hardly together. with tish and miley always on tour or on location together, and billy ray persuing his career.

    divorce is always difficult on children, even on the older ones. but i feel bad for the 10 year old and miley. for some reason people think 18 is automatically an adult, but thats far from true. you’re still developing and finding out who you are as a person. since she hasn’t been making the best choices lately…i hope this doesn’t further the trend. i hope she remains on good terms with both of her parents and maybe finds more maturity and strength from it. :).

    To all the commenters who think incest is what caused this divorce: Are you serious? Look, I think Miley Cyrus is completely obnoxious and I wish she would step out of the spotlight and get an education, but to insinuate that she is having sex with her father is heinous. If you think this teenage girl has dressed inappropriately in the past because she is sleeping with her father, please go take a walk through any high school during school hours, or go to the movie theater on a Friday night, or look on facebook – I think you’ll see it is not uncommon for young girls to try to push the limits with what they wear. Not to seduce their fathers (eww), but in an effort to look sexy and grown-up to their peers. Not saying it’s right, just saying Miley Cyrus is not the first teenager to dress in revealing clothing. So, please consider this and also consider how distasteful it is to say that Miley and her father have an incestuous relationship.

    i love celebrities seem to have these weird trends: first it was the cheating husbands and now its married couples getting divorces. wonder who’s next…..

    Dan Says:

    Unfortunate, but understandable. I suppose we could all aptly assume that Miley Cyrus was the cause, not because of incest, but because of her fame. @faith: I agree with the polar opposite comment and @Rockstar: I agree with the incest remarks being heinous and repulsive.

    Another divorce, but the only difference is that it’s in the spotlight. Divorce rates are extremely high in America, and Hollywood is not an exception.

    miley’s been photographed going out without bras wearing white tshirts with huge gaping holes in them. i’m sure as miley’s manager, the fact that tish has been ignoring, if not encouring this type of behavior has caused a strain on the marriage. we’ve seen this in all of the popstars/actresses with ‘momagers’. britney spears, lindsay lohan, etc. you’re just NOT suppose to mix parenting with management. she’s paying her mom as her manager, and the distinction between PARENT and friend/manager becomes blurred. she gets encouragement and people enabling her, when her mother’s job is suppose to tell her NO. i’m not sure if billy ray has been more of a parent to miley ,since he is the one that introduced the 20 year old underwear model to her….but most fathers who are protective do not like to see their daughters acting the way she has lately. seeing as how he is a veteran of a business which sucks you dry and spits you out…..i think billy ray doesn’t approve of the direction miley is taking both in her career and her personal life. like it or not, miley’s mom has dealt a large hand in that.

    if there is anything that led to their marriage dissolution beyond their children, business, etc….. im going to wager that her mother is a cougar. she just has that vibe lool.

    i totally saw this coming, i mean come on! tish and miley are living in LA when billy lives in tennesse! ugh hello is that not weird? face it this family is not and has never been your “normal” family. before mileys fame, billy was touring 24/7, with tish and the kids at home. then miley got famous, and she toured with tish, leaving billy home. now they feel like theyve spent so much time apart they dont even know eachother, and there you a divorce. its pretty simple if you think about it

    maybe that’s hy miley is so crazy and not acting in a good way, the divorce or the problems of her parents are affecting her and that’s how she shows she needs attention.

    Shawna Says:

    So which one of them will get custody of their 10 year old so they can continue to turn her into a prosti-tot? Hopefully there will be a guardian ad litem to determine who out of the two of them can actually PARENT their children, rather than pimp them out.
