Miley Cyrus’ parents are splitting up.

TMZ is reporting that Tish Cyrus has filed for divorce from Billy Ray Cyrus after 19 years of marriage and five children.

On Thursday afternoon, Miley, 20, sent the following message to her father via Twitter:


Tish’s filing, which cites “irreconcilable differences” and asks for full physical and legal custody of the couple’s youngest child, 13-year-old Noah, comes some three years after Billy Ray filed for divorce.

In March 2011, Billy Ray told the ladies of The View that a divorce was no longer in the picture.

“Things are really the best they’ve ever been. A lot of people think that I am divorced — I’m not divorced. I dropped the divorce. I wanted to put my family back together,” he said at the time.
