Billy Ray and Leticia "Tish" Cyrus are divorcing after 17 years of marriage, according to The Tennessean. "As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for our family," the pair said in a statement. "We are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers."
The couple has five children, including daughter Miley, aka Hannah Montana. Billy Ray and Tish were married on Dec. 28, 1993, just over a year after Miley, named Destiny Hope at birth, was born on Nov. 23, 1992.
They are also parents to daughter Noah Lindsey and son Braison Chance. Billy Ray adopted Tish's son Trace and daughter Brandi when they were young children.
Divorce papers were filed Oct. 26 in Williamson County, Tennessee citing irreconcilable differences.
