After all that inter-family slander, blocking of interviews, bong hits and random Miley skankiness, the Cyruses are back to being one happy family.
First, Billy Ray announced that he and his wife Tish have called off their divorce.
Billy Ray Cyrus opens up to the ladies of The View on Friday, revealing that he’s called off his divorce from his wife of 17 years, in an effort to mend his family.
“I dropped the divorce. I wanted to put my family back together,” he says.
The musician and his wife Leticia “Tish” Cyrus – parents of teen pop sensation Miley Cyrus – made the bombshell announcement of their split last October after filing papers in Tennessee citing “irreconcilable differences.”
Right now, Billy Ray says his family is making strides towards reconciling and that they are working hard on the healing process together.
“Communication I think is one of the biggest problems that we as human beings have in this whole world,” he says, “and I think for the first time me and my entire family are finally communicating with each other in a way that it’s been quite some time and to answer your question, things are really the best they’ve ever been.”
And today he also reveals that part of that communication fixing has brought him and his princess-on-a-path of destruction back together.
When asked how his relationship is now with his superstar daughter, Cyrus says: “The best it’s ever been. I feel like I kind of got my Miley back in a way. I feel like we are the daddy and the daughter that we were before Hannah Montana happened. Our communication, we have laughed a lot in the last couple of days.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Cyrus raised the ire of Miley when he went public with their troubled relationship and his concerns for his daughter, whose life appeared to be spiraling out of control as scandal after scandal surfaced.
He told GQ magazine that he blamed fame and those that were handling his daughter’s career for making “bad choices” and shared that he wished he could turn back the clock and do things differently.
He also talks about recent pictures that surfaced of a seemingly intoxicated 18-year-old Miley “stumbling” out of a New York restaurant.
“I was talking to Miley last night and she was talking about New York and then I noticed that she felt there was a sadness and I said Miley are you… and she’d sent me a picture and I thought it looked like she’d been crying,” Cyrus says.
“And I asked her and she said ‘Well there’s some stuff about a picture and they said I was drunk’ and she said ‘Daddy, I wasn’t I had a meeting with Dr. Luke’ and I happen to know that Dr. Luke is one of the greatest songwriters in the world right now, he wrote Party in the U.S.A. and Miley’s working on a new album and that’s very good for her creativity to be channeling that energy toward music.
“So she says ‘I had a meeting with Dr. Luke and the staff and we were all there and I came out of this restaurant’ and there were so many paparazzi that she said ‘I couldn’t see Daddy’ and ‘they were flashing’ she said ‘I held my hand up to block the flashes out of my eyes because I couldn’t see to take a step.’
“I went back and re-looked at the picture and I go ‘Baby I’m sorry it’s just got to be tough.’ She said ‘It’s embarrassing. It hurts my feelings’ and she said, most importantly, ‘It was a lie. I wasn’t drinking. I wasn’t drunk. I was just trying to get to my car after a meeting.’”
If THAT man isn’t in denial… SMH. At least he figured out it’s cheaper to keep the wife before it was too late.
