Billy Ray Cyrus to Files to End Marriage After 7 Months

Share

Billy Ray Cyrus has filed for divorce from Firerose, and the reason?

Well, there appears to be a lot more to this unexpected story.

According to legal documents obtained by People Magazine and other celebrity gossip outlets, Cyrus is seeking to have his union from Firerose (real name: Johanna Rose Hodges) annulled after the spouses only just got married in October.

For what reason?

These same legal papers cite irreconcilable differences and, perhaps most notably, inappropriate marital conduct as the reason for divorce.

Cyrus is also seeking an annulment on the grounds of fraud.

Yikes, huh?

Neither side of this apparently unhappy marriage has commented on the split in public just yet.

The Australian musician — who still goes by Firerose Cyrus on Instagram, at least as of this exact time — posted photos with the rocker as recently as late April.

Heck, just a few weeks ago, the 35-year old paid tribute to her husband on the occasion of their six-month wedding anniversary.

“6 months ago I married this man,” she wrote online, adding at the time:

“Life isn’t always easy… but it sure helps when your husband’s also your best friend. Thank you Lord!”

How Did They Get Here

The musicians were friends for years before they began writing tracks together during the COVID-19 pandemic.

They started dating in 2022 and got engaged later that year before exchanging vows last autumn.

“10/10/23 will always be the beautiful, joyous day that our two souls united as one in holy matrimony,” they wrote in a joint Instagram post at the time.

“It was the most perfect, ethereal celebration of love we could have ever imagined.”

Together professionally, the estranged husband and wife have released four songs: “New Day,” “Time,” “Plans” and “After the Storm.”

Their marriage marked Cyrus’ third time walking down the aisle — and now this will be his third divorce.

The country crooner was married to Cindy Smith from 1986 until 1991. Following their split, he wed Tish Cyrus in 1993 and stayed married to her for three decades.

The exes are the parents of Miley Cyrus.
