Back in October we learned the somewhat surprising news that Billy Ray Cyrus and wife Leticia Tish Cyrus, parents of popstar/actress Miley Cyrus, decided to split and end their marriage. At the time, there were rumors going around that the split was caused by an alleged affair between Tish and rocker Bret Michaels (tho, both parties have denied the affair). After a bit of back and forth feuding in the media, we learn today that plans for a divorce between the couple have been called off … Billy Ray has filed to end the divorce proceedings because the couple are working to reconcile.
Billy Ray Cyrus just made it official, by filing documents — obtained by TMZ — to withdraw his divorce petition so he can try to save his marriage. Billy Ray filed the docs in Williamson County, Tennessee, stating, “The parties are attempting a reconciliation.” Billy Ray has been saying Miley Cyrus’ fame compromised their family. Billy Ray and Tish have been seen out together over the last few weeks. The petition to withdraw the divorce was filed March 11 … and the judge signed the order withdrawing the divorce papers.
Aww … well this is nice. I may not be any kind of Cyrus fan but I am glad to hear that Billy Ray and Tish are working to repair their marriage. It’s always a sad thing when a couple finds out that they are no longer in love but it’s a very heartening thing to hear that a couple is mature enough to work thru their difficulties and repair a damaged relationship. It’s unclear at this point if the couple will be successful in the long run but I, for one, am rooting for their successful reconciliation.
