Billy Ray Cyrus is trying to mend his relationship with daughter Miley Cyrus after telling GQ magazine that he was “scared” for her well-being.

Billy Ray, 49, tells People magazine that his comments in GQ were “explosive, and unintentionally so” and that he is now focusing his time on mending his relationship with his children and his estranged wife, Tish Cyrus.

Last week, Billy Ray told GQ magazine that he “never made a dime” off of his daughter (a claim that a source at Disney called “ludicrous“) and that his family was bring attacked by Satan.

Miley was reportedly “furious” over Billy Ray’s comment and a source connected with her camp likened Billy Ray to the notoriously press-happy Michael Lohan.

Billy Ray is now reportedly spending his time with 11-year-old daughter Noah Cyrus and his soon-to-be-ex wife, Tish. Billy Ray and Tish filed for divorce in 2010.

“My family is the most important thing I have, and we are working together to make sure our future is stronger and healthier,” Cyrus told People. “It is all a learning process, and we thank everyone for their support and respect of our privacy as we sort through very important family issues.”

Billy Ray and Miley have always had a very close relationship. Watch the two sing “Ready, Set, Don’t Go,” a song about a father trying to let his daughter go out into the world, below.

When asked about Billy Ray’s claim that he is making amends, Miley’s rep tells Celebuzz that they have “no comment.”
