On Tuesday we learned from Billy Ray Cyrus, in a new interview with GQ Magazine, that he blames the Disney show Hannah Montana for “destroying” his family and today we are learning that his daughter Miley Cyrus is none too pleased with her daddy’s comments. In his interview, Billy Ray lamented that he no longer has any control of his daughter’s wild ways and he places the blame squarely on the show that made her a star. Apparently, Miley has expressed to the people around her that she is PISSED at Billy Ray for making such comments about her publicly and has even reportedly likened her father to Michael Lohan. Ouch!
Miley Cyrus is furious that her country singin’ daddy, Billy Ray, sat down with GQ to bash the Disney show that made them mega-rich, as well as for his comments saying he’s “scared” for his daughter’s well-being. Now, I’m hearing that the ‘Hannah Montana’ star has signaled that she wants him to clam up and stop acting like another infamous stage dad. “To say Miley is angry is an understatement,” a friend of the Disney star tells me. “She’s furious that her own flesh and blood would make a private matter so public. Who does he think he is, Michael Lohan?” While Miley hasn’t commented publicly about the article, friends tell me the actress-singer is mystified, saying it’s “unforgivable” that Billy Ray would randomly start biting the hand that fed him, as well as gab about his kid’s personal life. “This isn’t what a father does,” my source says. “He never said a bad world about ‘Hannah Montana’ all those years it made millions for the family, and now that Miley has turned 18 and is making her own decisions, he does this. Unforgivable.” There have also been rumblings that Miley and Billy Ray haven’t actually spoken since December, before his interview for the GQ article. “Miley has told him that if he wants to talk with her he has her number,” the friend reveals. “It’s been the same number she always has had.” Call your kid, Billy Ray!
Ugh … this is really unfortunate. My fear is that things will continue to worsen between Miley and Billy Ray if they don’t mend fences quickly. While I get that Billy Ray is upset over the way things turned out with his family, I think it’s very important for him to repair his relationship with his daughter as soon as possible. If this rift is allowed to grow bigger, Billy Ray‘s relationship with Miley could actually turn out like the one that Lindsay Lohan has with her father Michael Lohan. Blah! I don’t think anyone wants that to happen. It remains to be seen how this drama will play out … but I do hope that this father and daughter relationship can be fixed. It would just be sad to see things get worse between Miley and Billy Ray :/
