Billy Ray Cyrus’ marriage seems to once again be on the rocks. According to TMZ, Billy Ray’s wife, Tish, has filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences.” 

This marks the second time Billy Ray and Tish have been at divorce’s door. In 2011, Billy Ray filed but later withdrew the papers in an attempt at reconciliation, which he revealed during an appearance on The View. “I want to put my family back together,” he told the ladies in 2011. “Things are the best they’ve ever been.”

Now, however, it’s Tish who is seeking an end to their nearly 20-year union. In Billy Ray’s memoir, Hillbilly Heart, released this past year, he wrote at length about their courtship and marriage. 

According to TMZ, Billy Ray’s wife, Tish, is asking for full physical and legal custody, with visitation for Billy Ray. 

Together, the couple has three biological children, including singer-actress Miley Cyrus.
