Miley Cyrus uses Twitter to reveal Billy Ray’s affair with co-star: too harsh?

Miley Cyrus

The Cyrus family is so filled with drama that I guess Miley (shown in this photo en route to a music studio yesterday) comes by it honestly. Less than ten days after Tish Cyrus filed for divorce from Billy Ray, the two were not only spotted out for lunch with their youngest child, Noah, but they were also photographed arm in arm with Tish nuzzling into Billy Ray’s shoulder. I guess this means that Tish and Billy Ray are the new Miley and Liam, and they might be back on now, but it could be so over next week.

Well, the photos of her parents looking all coupley again didn’t sit too well with Miley, who decided to call her dad out last night on Twitter in a huge way. Of course, she tweeted and deleted, but before people could take a screencap (and that always happens, silly celebrities), Miley threatened to out Billy Ray for what looks like an affair against his marriage:

The woman standing next to Miley in this photo is named Dylis Croman, and she starred alongside Billy Ray last year for his Broadway debut in Chicago. Billy Ray played Billy Flynn (I know, it’s ridiculous), and I guess Dylis played Roxie Hart. Here’s some photos of them together.

Would it surprise me if Billy Ray got something extra from Dylis as they bonded backstage? Not at all, but it’s not like Tish has been entirely faithful throughout the marriage either. Remember those Bret Michaels rumors?

This isn’t the first time Miley has owned her dad on Twitter. She also did so when Billy Ray wasn’t answering his texts or email immediately after Tish filed for divorce earlier this month. Ordinarily, I’d think Miley was acting a little immature by airing her family’s dirty laundry in public, but it would behoove Billy Ray to answer his familial texts and emails in the first place. One can be certain that he’ll do so in the future.

      Yep. Bratty, immature, insensitive, moronic and douchie.

      There, she really should pair up with Beiber. Perfect couple right there.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        Why should she be sensitive to her father’s feelings when he didn’t take his wife and kids feelings into consideration?

      • FLORC says:

        Kind of agree with all of you. Miley is hurt and lashing out all over the place. She’s being a brat, but in her world this is probably the only route.

      • RocketMerry says:

        @Mort, I understand that this might be a touchy topic for you (read your post further down in the thread, sorry about your situation).
        But let’s be clear, here: Miley is NOT being fair. For instance, her mother was not really caring and warm towards her family whilst cheating on her husband a while ago. I don’t see Miley being full of attitude about that.

        And I’m sorry, posting threats to relatives on social networks IS being insensitive. He IS her father, even though he made a horrible mistake. Adults make mistakes all of the time, and while I would never condone a cheating husband’s behaviour, I really don’t think in this case it’s the daughter’s job to call him out on it (especially since Trish isn’t some delicate flower incapable of defending herself). Let Trish do that, if she does not mind Billy Ray replying on the same tone.

        Bottom line: Miley is behaving like an insensitive douche, in this very particular situation.
        Did she even bother to ask her own mother or other family members if making this public would be ok? Did she even consider that this being all over the net might hurt somebody other than her own father? See: insensitive.

        Now, had she dealt with this whole thing OUTSIDE of the virtual world, I would have said: “Good for her”. But she went social with this, so…

      • Bijlee says:

        @rocketmerry while I agree it may be bratty sensitive immature etc. I think the real reason she did it was because when her parents were first getting divorced, tish was getting all the flack for cheating. They were known rumors whereas with billy ray people weren’t very aware and may have been treating him like a saint through this divorce, saying awful things about her mom being a goldigger etc (I for one do think her mom is in it for the money). So she probably got tired and annoyed of it.

        I can see where she’s coming from because it would annoy me to no end to have people say awful things about my mother and father without knowing the full story.

        But agreed she really didnt think this through. And its not something that she should have poosted on twitter. Especially since even her little sister has a twitter. Plus it’s probably pr for her album too, which omfg is annoying.

      • Lucinda says:

        If her parents aren’t acting mature, why should she? I strongly suspect her parents treat her more like a friend than a daughter until things get dicey and then they pull the parent card. My parents acted that way a bit with me when it came to divorce. And again, she’s 20! She’s being a 20 year old kid of parents who aren’t very parental. Unfortunately for all, they live a very public life so we are going to see all the spats. How different is this really from your Facebook friend who airs his/her dirty laundry all over Facebook. Not right but it still happens.

      • hayley says:

        maybe it’s because I’m 18, or because my parents recently separated due to infidelity, but I don’t see what she’s doing as bratty. I’m sure she’s hurt by him and wants to hurt him right back. I get it.

    • The Original Victoria says:

      +1 She needs to stay in a child’s place in regards to her father and his marriage.

      Not only that you’re putting the other woman’s business out there and who knows what HE told that lady.

      She is trifling and culturally appropriates other people’s cultures for monetary gain which makes her even more of a jerk.

      • Lucinda says:

        Wow. Judgy much? What exactly is a child’s place? Is this expected even if father isn’t acting fatherly? Answer your child’s texts.

      • Zinjojo says:

        “A child’s place in regards to her father…” Jeez, what exactly is that? Would you say the same thing about an abusive relationship? Is the parent always right. Are you an authoritarian who believes in hierarchical structures.

        She’s clearly hurt and possibly lashing out but if he’s not responding to her privately, then perhaps this is the only way she can get a response.

      • Bijlee says:

        @zingo she said in regards to her father and his marriage. I don’t think she meant like its okay for her dad to ever abuse her just that Miley should stay out of it.

      • CC says:

        She’s an adult now, not a child. I would have done the same, I do and will continue to expose my own father’s cheating ways. Let everyone know who he really is. This whole “keep it within the family” only protects the cheater.

      • blaize says:

        Celebrity or not, not everybody agrees that it’s wrong to wear things from other cultures, and a lot of us aren’t offended when people wear things of are cultures. I know it doesn’t offend my family in the least, and we’ve seen many people inside and outside of Hollywood wear things from our culture and do dances that originated from our culture. All of this fills some of us with pride.

        The cultural appropriation debate is new to me- I literally just learned about it this year. To me what seems offensive about Miley’s cultural appropriation (even though I’m not black) is mostly what she SAID about it. When you combine that with her style, it comes off as kind of stereotypical rather than appreciative and admiring, and she needs to be more careful what she says. Even though I doubt that she’s at all a racist and meant any harm, we should all be careful not to say ignorant things when it comes to racial things so we don’t offend people or come off as being reductive, intentions be damned. Someone needs to have a talk with this girl.

      • Zinjojo says:

        @bijlee; I don’t think you get what I was saying. I was reacting to the very authoritarian comment that she needs to stay in a child’s place. She’s an adult and has the agency to do what she wants. If her father is not responding to her private messages and she calls him out publicly, that’s her choice to make. I do not believe that just because he’s her father that sets some type of unbreakable boundary.

      • Dutch says:

        Miley has been that family’s breadwinner for a long time. She’s not been a child in that family dynamic just as long.

      • Bijlee says:

        @zinjojo I get what your saying in response to the authoritarian comment now, but I’m saying Victoria only used it specific to her father and his marriage. People down below have said something similar that Miley should stay out of it. I don’t at all agree with what or how shes saying.

      • Chell says:

        I agree with you 100%! It’s not her place to make public any information in regards to her parent’s marriage! That is between her mother & father. If she has an issue, she needs to handle it privately…not post it on social media. Completely disrespectful to all parties involved. And a bit hypocritical when she complains about her relationship troubles being splashed all over the media!

      • jwoolman says:

        Dutch – Miley was never her family’s breadwinner. She herself said her dad paid for her personal expenses. Her mom acted as her manager on commission. So when Miley came into her money at 18- she had a bundle.

        I doubt that she knows exactly what’s been going on between her parents. She’s super-needy right now. I doubt that her dad has been totally ignoring her- he just needed some downtime. I know people like that, who would get terribly angry with me if I wasn’t answering the phone 24/7. Apparently they thought I could function without sleeping, eating, and using the toilet. What can her dad tell her, anyway, other than repeat endlessly (as he probably already has) “honey, this isn’t about you and we both love you very much and always will”.

        Her mother should be reading her the riot act over this behavior. Maybe she already has. Miley’s relationship with her dad should not be connected to her mother’s relationship with her dad. Neither of her parents are saints, but there is simply no way that Miley could know the whole story. She is probably projecting her frustration with her on again/off again boyfriend onto her dad. She needs to just shut up and let the grownups deal with their own problems.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        Cheating isn’t JUST about the husband & wife. It hurts the kids too. Therefore, it is their business. When a parent cheats it destroys a child’s ability to trust, which affects the type of partner they choose and whether they will have a healthy relationship that partner. My father’s affair was, was most definitely my business, particularly when I found out I might have a brother (as a result of his indiscretions). It’s my right to know who my siblings are and to decide if I want to form a relationship with them. And before anyone says my case is unique, it isn’t. I hate to have anything in common with Lohan, but her father did the same thing, as did Arnold. Perhaps Miley did her dad a favor calling him out before he did something that would have affected their family further (ie having a child that will cut into their family fortune).

      • Amber says:

        That’s what I don’t get @jwoolman. Is Miley also not able to contact her mother? Miley can’t know all that’s going on w/ her parents. THEY obviously don’t know. (Can we imagine her parents discussing this stuff with her in detail? If so, maybe that’s part of the problem.) If her parents reconciled, but Billy Ray wasn’t totally honest, is just blurting it out to the world the best thing for her mother and siblings? Perhaps her mother already knows and it’s a “break”, open marriage thing (and maybe neither parent has copped to). In that case it’s none of Miley’s business. Or maybe!!!, lol, her mom knows and Miley’s doing the dirty work or getting her own revenge against her dad. I’m having trouble coming up w/ scenarios where this needed to be made public. If her parents go back and forth, reconciliation, break up, blah, blah… the only thing that makes sense to me is Miley has beef w/ her dad and wants him shamed and brought down a few pegs. Unless it’s a really, really, bad environment for her mother, I don’t see how this is appropriate. Maybe Miley has reasons that we don’t even know about. But she’s done this in a way that’s now opened all of them/this up (since SHE dished the details), she’s going to be asked about it and she’s going to seem like a hypocrite (b/c of the Liam rumors, the stuff about her mom and divulging this private info). It’s also vague. We don’t know what’s going on. It doesn’t look good for Miley and it seems like she’s injecting herself into their drama.

    • nina says:

      uhhhhh….her dad aired dirty laundry about her publicly before himself. She’s just following her dumb assed parents exmample. the cyrus family seems to be stage parenty and they clearly benefitted from their daughter’s celebrity, they’ve created this.

  1. Liv says:

    What’s wrong with this family? Talking like that about your dad on twitter? She should be ashamed.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      My father was a career politician who frequently cheated on my mom, while everyone kept quiet and pretended it didn’t happen. I was sick of all the gossip and whispers, so I finally called him on it after I heard he had fathered a child with his favorite mistress (and found a loan payment book that he kept hidden from my mom). Turns out he took out a loan for $10,000 to keep his mistress quiet and landed her a $60,000 a year job managing a senior building (when she was totally unqualified and didn’t even know how to send an e-mail). I stopped talking to my father last year, when he promised to stop seeing the child of his mistress (who is a 20 year old addict that he supports financially, and is NOT actually his child). Now, if someone asks how my dad is I tell them I wouldn’t know because I don’t speak to him any more. I refuse to keep his secret because it enables him. Perhaps Miley doesn’t want to enable him. She has nothing to be ashamed of. He should be ashamed of himself and if he won’t hold himself accountable, I’m glad she’s forcing his hand.

      • Badirene says:

        This^^

        It must be an awful position to be in, keeping one parents secret from the other parent. And also a terrible position for a parent to put a child in, no matter what age that child is.

      • aims says:

        How does your mom put up with it? I’ve always wonder how the wives of politicians are able to be ok with, or shut off their brains to their husbands activities.

      • Liv says:

        Okay, I understand your point of view. And of course it’s her father who’s to blame, but putting this on twitter is wrong. I’m against her choice to make everything public on twitter, not against the choice to expose a cheater.

      • CC says:

        + a million

        When I was 10, I was in my dad’s car, saw condoms there, and told my mother. My “excellent” dad called me a liar. But you know what? I watched TV, I knew condom brands.

        And you know what else? They’re now divorced but by what is my understanding, he cheated on my mom the whole time they were in a relationship and married. I guess she should be glad (?) he wore condoms, or who knows what she might have caught.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Yeah I’m with Mort. I think it’s unfair to judge how she’s behaving, given how hurt she must be right now.

        ..besides the fact that, according to this piece, her father stonewalling her.

        Personally the WORST thing someone can do to me is ignore me when I’m trying to tell them how I feel. Yell at me, argue back, call me names, ANYTHING but when someone just shuts down or behaves in a nonreactive way, I go ape-shit. I feel like that’s basically telling someone that their feelings are worth shit, not even important enough to acknowledge.

      • jwoolman says:

        You don’t have to deal with your dad (I gave up on mine ages ago), but I would never put conditions on him like “don’t ever see your possible child again”. My father had a couple of kids he claimed and supported outside of his marriage, too, and I always thought his willingness to support them was a good thing. He was such a liar, I couldn’t stand him anyway… But even though I have doubts about the actual paternity of my alleged half-sibs, it doesn’t matter. It was good that he took responsibility for them. And that has nothing to do with how they turned out, either. Would have been nice if he took financial responsibility for us, too, but I’ll give credit where it’s due. He was pretty delusional about why he felt he didn’t need to give mom support, as we found out from letters after her death. He thought he “left her a house” while he actually left her a big mortgage and other debts. This is the same guy who divorced and remarried without actually informing his wife and then didn’t bother leaving a forwarding address! His own lawyer claimed to not know where he was (apparently the address died with the original lawyer in a car crash), which really ticked off the judge when mom had to get a legal divorce (his wasn’t quite legal….) to establish support requirements. Yes, I know my family history would make an excellent soap opera.

    • kristin says:

      my mom cheated on my dad and subsequently ripped my family apart with her selfishness. miley is no different than another adult, she just happens to be related. she has every right to call her dad out. GO MILEY

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @Aims, at first she was in denial. My father was a very convincing liar, as most politicians are. Then he got bolder, and sloppier and it became more difficult for him to cover up. By the time she was fed up with him, she felt that she couldn’t leave him because she was the bread winner and she didn’t want him to walk away with half of what she worked so hard for. So they remain in a loveless marriage, where she is miserable and he pretends it isn’t his fault. I feel sad for my mom because she’ll never have that great love or a partner that treats her with the respect she deserves.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @jwool, the terms were established by my father in the presence of a family therapist who added that his relationship with his mistresses son was poisoning his marriage and destroying his relationship with me. We all agreed that he should support the kid IF he was his. However, a paternity test established that he was not and, at that point, my father was supposed to sever ties (as per his suggestion). He claimed to be done with him, but caught him on the phone with him and found several bills related to the kid (dental bills, clothing and electronics). These were all things my mom had to pay for when the credit card bill came in (since my mom was the one working, and dad was retired at that point). That kid was a constant reminder of my dad’s affair and my mom wasn’t able to move on with him in our life. Telling him to cut ties with the kid was the RIGHT thing to do for all of us. I’m sorry to hear you had a similar experience. What I did may not have been right for you, but it was right for me. I know I did everything I needed to do for the relationship on my end. He just refused to keep up his end of the bargain. Which is why I don’t grieve the loss of our relationship.

      • judysee says:

        My mom cheated too, left Dad and all six kids to move in with her lover, I was 13. My dad fought for custody and raised us. Her lover was an alcoholic, but she loved him and stuck by him til he died. Decades later my parents are best friends, I speak to both of them almost every day. I love them dearly. She was a good mom, not a good wife. That was between them. I never spoke ill of her to him or vice versa and I’m glad. They have healed and bottom line it was not my business to call them names or threaten. She has her regrets. Everyone makes mistakes, move on. Being angry and hateful only hurts the you.

  2. atorontogal says:

    Good for her. Billy’s a douche.

  3. Shannon says:

    I feel bad for Miley. Her father is a dirty cheat and probably has been for many years. While I think it was a tad immature for her to throw it all out there on twitter, you can’t blame her really because she’s probably sick of her father’s cheating ways. And how annoying is it when your texts and calls don’t get answered? Pretty f*cking annoying.

  4. teehee says:

    No, not too harsh. Men get away with it too often and I’d call him out too. Its ok if she has standards— as ironic as it seems given her tendencies. Its mean but hey, he didnt have to cheat either.

  5. Eliza says:

    She needs to stop taking those pills. The side effects are not worth it!

  6. Mia 4S says:

    But but but Miley is so private! She’s only about the music! ;-)

  7. Krista says:

    What happened to picking up the phone and just calling him?

  8. Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    Inappropriate to a large extent but I can totally see why she would be angry with her dad, I wish she hadn’t publicly revealed his affair but she has a right to be angry.

  9. JL says:

    Well if you don;t want it told, don’t do it…

  10. pao la says:

    What a stupid bitch. she’ll regret all the latest behaviors when she’ll be older and hopefully her career will be done by then.

  11. DTX says:

    Okaaay…

    So Miley can get annoyed that her parents are “back together” after an alleged affair but she wants everyone to leave her alone when it comes to her own relationship cheating scandal, riiiiight…

    A little off topic but I read a blind a couple of years ago that hinted that Miley hooked up with Chris Hemsworth before he & wifey were pregnant. Anybody else heard this? Maybe this is why she’s forgiven Liam over the January thing?

  12. mommak918 says:

    I kinda feel for her… As a kid, my mom had an ongoing affair for years! I called my mom out on it and tried breaking it to my father. Everyone treated me like I an idiot kid.. years later my mom admitted her affair. My dad was a chump who paid for her and her side piece for 20 years. He lived in the darkness and it broke my heart. I still have anger towards my mom and though Im working on forgiving her, I can totally relate to the feelings of anger and the need for the truth when there has been years of lying!

  13. wonderwoman21 says:

    Who knows, she might be a brat but her mom my be pulling her strings to get revenge on the dad. In my teens during my parents divorce my mother used us to take out revenge on our dad by pressuring us to have no contact with him and by telling us that he was a horrible person. Turns out she was the one being a horrible person but we were blind to it because of her sob stories.

  14. Faye says:

    Not cool, Miley. On the other hand, she comes by her drama and bad relationship decisions honestly.

  15. Jules says:

    What she managed to do this without having her famewhore tongue involved somehow?

  16. Holden says:

    You are going to flame out your father for not answering your texts fast enough? Grow up and fix that disaster of a haircut.

  17. emmie_a says:

    If Miley really wanted to talk to Billy Ray, she would CALL him not text him. This was just blackmail. And who gives their parent a one hour ultimatum? Ignorance is bliss in that clan.

  18. UsedToBeLulu says:

    She needs to stay out of her parent’s business. Despite their problems, I think Tish and Billy really love each other, and that is more than most kids have – two loving parents. I’m not giving either of them a pass if they have cheated, and I understand that Miley is 1. A spoiled entitled brat and 2. Way too addicted to living her private life publicly and 3. Understandably angry about the situation. But in this case, she is out of line.

  19. lisa2 says:

    My mother told me once that she loved her children, but that we were in affect outsiders in her marriage. That her and my father had a dynamic that in part had nothing to do with us. Miley mother is dealing with her marriage. Miley said that she was keeping her relationship private. But why would that not apply to her parents.

    I know people are going nuts over the “government spying” thing is the government doesn’t need to spy. People are telling all their business on twitter, facebook, instagram everywhere. Anywhere. The lines are so blurry and it is amazing to see how people don’t have boundaries about what to share and what to keep private.

    she needs to take care of her own life and let her GROWN mother deal with HER marriage.

    • PrincessMe says:

      ^^ So much, this.

      I’ve always thought that whatever was going on in Miley’s relationship was her business, and only hers; and whatever she decided to do was only going to affect her life. If Liam really did cheat and she felt the need to stay with him (hopefully they talked about it and worked it out, one way or the other), that’s her business.

      But this… this seems mighty rich. Whatever is happening in her parent’s relationship is not up to her to fix. Yes, it may affect her in some way. Yes, she may take a side of who is “right” and who is “wronged”, but at the end of the day, it’s not her problem to fix. At the end of the day, relationships are complicated, and we can have our own feelings of what the right thing to do is, but the two people in the relationship know way more about their own dynamics than anyone else can. They know if it’s worth saving or not. This is not the public’s relationship, so I don’t know what airing your parent’s (or whoever’s) business is going to accomplish.
      I can’t agree with this. If she was airing her own crap, more power to her – handle it how you feel you must. But this is not her relationship, so she needs to step back.

    • marie says:

      completely agree with all this, stop airing your dirty laundry for everyone to see. once it’s out there, there’s no taking it back..why would you want everyone to know?

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        To be fair, this will probably be a US Weekly cover story in a few weeks anyway.

        Miley’s really just beating them to the punch ;)

        I’m giving her a pass on this. She’s only 20 years old and she’s obviously really hurting right now.

      • marie says:

        oh, I get that she’s pissed OKitt and she has every right to be but once you get over being pissed, there’s a lot of hurt. And me personally, would not want to see that on the cover of magazines or talked about on gossip news programs. And yeah, maybe US Weekly would have ran it, may be not but Miley just made their jobs a hell of a lot easier. Plus, she just opened herself up to a whole slew of questions she’s probably not ready to answer. there’s just some things you can’t take back.

        Last thing, why the hell did she give Liam a free pass?

      • gogoGorilla says:

        Yeah, I just don’t understand this need to play one’s entire life out in the media. I think what she did was wrong because although they may be her parents, it is NOT her marriage, and how her parents choose to deal with what goes on in their relationship has nothing to do with adult children who aren’t affected other than some compulsive need for attention.

        Besides, does anyone think Miley is doing this for anything except attention? I used to like her and have always stuck up for her on this site, but I’m starting to agree that she’s just a brat who will say/do anything if people pay attention to her.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I’m not saying I’d handle it the same way either guys but TBH, I’m a product of a happy marriage (going on 50 years for my parents)-so I’m not sure how I would handle something like that. Mort made a REALLY good point above about how sometimes you have to put cheaters on blast in a public arena to get them to come clean so…*shrugs*

        “Yeah, I just don’t understand this need to play one’s entire life out in the media.”

        Right, but she’s lived her entire life in the spotlight from a very early age. This is just normal to her. Like a lot of child stars, she probably wouldn’t know the idea of “privacy” if it slapped her in the face. If Liam DID in fact cheat on her and she forgave him, that’s indefensible, but cheating on your bf/gf is not the same as cheating on your wife/husband of XX years, particularly when there are children involved.

        Anyway, I’m mad at you ladies for forcing me to defend her this much so I’ll leave it at this: Sure, it wasn’t the classiest/smartest thing for Miley to do, but I’m laying blame on her father’s shoulders, which is where I think it belongs.

      • marie says:

        congratulations to your parents OKitt, that’s truly amazing, it’s not something you hear about anymore..

        as for the rest, I’m kind of annoyed that it seems like I’m attacking Miley, which I’m not trying too. I don’t dislike the girl, I just think she’s young and her emotions still rule her.. meh, whatever

      • Marty says:

        I see where Miley’s coming from and she has every right to call out her father, but on Twitter? Calling him out at a family dinner is one thing, calling him out to all your 12,000,000 followers is another. Just seems a bit classless to me.

        @Marie- For what it’s worth I didn’t feel like you were attacking Miley or any other person, just stating your opinions. Which you have every right to btw. :)

        I know, marie-my parents are a def. rarity. I always tell them they should be put in a lab to be studied by scientists! lol

        FTR, I def. didn’t think you were “attacking Miley”, and I hope you didn’t take my comments as such. I just feel like, collectively, the comments on this post are pretty skewed towards being overly-harsh on Miley. I also think I’m just really sympathetic because I feel like I’ve lived a charmed life when it comes to my parents’ marriage, plus I was young and impulsive once, many light years ago ;)

        Anyway *interweb hugs* to you

  20. Jayna says:

    Her mother screwed around.

    They apparently, even with Tish knowing this gossip now tweeted, got together for lunch with your dad and even hugged. Stay out of it in the media, kid. You will only lose. Mom will actually support Dad and say you don’t know everything, blah, blah. Tryiing to humiliate dad on twitter, no matter what, is immature.

  21. fabgrrl says:

    Well, I’m sure glad Twitter wasn’t around when I was 12 years old. Oh, wait, Miley is 20?!?!

  22. MisJes says:

    It blows my mind that she would even consider showing that level of disrespect to her father, and embarrass her family by airing their dirty laundry for all the world to see.

    Whatever is going on within her family should be handled with privacy and dignity. But what do I know, her best friend Leslie would probably tell me she’s just being Miley.

  23. Georgina says:

    Not the classiest behavior, but I think it says a lot about Billy Ray that Miley would even need to resort to Twitter blackmail in order to get her father to answer her calls/texts/emails

  24. lisa says:

    miley looks like a sick little boy in that pic with dylis

  25. Talie says:

    This girl is insane to do this. For godsakes, she has a little sister that she should be protecting.

  26. Mayday says:

    I don’t care what he did, airing a family’s dirty laundry on a public forum is immature and we all KNOW if this situation was reveresed she would be flipping out about her “privacy” etc.

  27. GiGi says:

    I think the sooner adult children see their parents as individuals – with their own personalities, problems, etc. – the better. Billy Ray & Tish’s marriage has nothing to do with Miley. Hopefully they can be good parents even if they’re not good spouses.

    • sputnik says:

      i agree with what you’re saying about seeing your parents as adults with their own wants and needs. but as a child of a big old cheater, it can take a looong time for you to get there. the instinct to lash out when you see a parent hurt another, cheat, and get away with it is pretty overwhelming. smart to do it on twitter, nope. but i can understand why.

    • gogoGorilla says:

      Totally agree with @gigi. I said something similar above (should have read all the comments!).

      Miley is 20 years old, not 12 (although you’d never know it). I understand the point of view from folks here who have felt the pain of a cheating parent, but Miley is not a kid who lives at home and is at the mercy of what happens between her parents. Honestly, she’s just acting like a little brat here.

    • Violet says:

      True, but I would argue that — unless there are extentuating circumstances, like one parent being abusive — being a good parent includes treating the other parent with respect, and cheating is pretty much the definition of disrepectful.

      I’m a lot older than Miley, but would be absolutely devasted if I found out my dad was cheating on my mother. I can see how she’d lash out so publicly, given that he seems to have cut off all communication with his family.

      Since Miley deleted the tweet shortly afterwards, it’s clear that it was just a momentary impulse, but the Internet never forgets. No one under the age of 30 has ever had, or ever will have, true privacy. Every little lapse is captured forever.

      At this point, I have much more sympathy for Miley and her siblings than for her father and his side piece.

  28. Asdfg says:

    Has she tried CALLING her father?

    I feel like this all a huge PR move for her new album.

    Seriously, what father would ignore his children? If Miley wants to speak with her father so badly why can’t she call, fly, drive or go to him? Would her father ignore her? Anyone know about Billy Ray Cyrus? Is that like him to ignore his family? I don’t know much about him.

    Ugh.

    • Asdfg says:

      If this is all really happening and not a pr stunt…

      Not only is she being disrespectful to her father (the father that raised her/made her famous) by tweeting and posting pictures she is being disrespectful to her family and friends. Dylis Croman too. Poor woman ( Dylis ).

      How low Miley.

      Can’t believe i’m only a year older than Miley. She should be ashamed of herself.

    • jwoolman says:

      He’s not in the habit of ignoring his children. Miley just thinks she has the right to him 24/7. She doesn’t, she’s an adult and certainly doesn’t hop to it when he wants to contact her. She’s just very upset about other things right now. If things were going well with Liam, she would not be blowing up about this. It hasn’t occurred to her that her dad is dealing with tough issues right now also and that her dad isn’t Liam. I doubt she really knows the true story, and neither do we.

      • Asdfg says:

        True, it’s quite obvious she has no respect for her father. I get that she’s going through a lot right now but that doesn’t excuse her actions.

        Everyone make mistakes. Parents have feelings and needs too. They can’t be mom and dad 24/7. Just because your parents make mistakes does NOT give you the right to disrespect them or belittle them in front of the world.

        Like you said, she probably doesn’t know the whole story. Only Tish and Billy know the truth. Would a couple of 19 years really get divorced over a one night stand? Most couples would seek marriage counseling or talk it out and try to get past it. I think there is more to this divorce then “cheating”. Which is understandable. People change – grow apart. That’s just life.

        Miley just needs to grow up. It’s the least she could do for her younger siblings. She needs a reality check.

        ETA:

        Just saw pictures of Tish and Billy getting lunch 10 days after she filed for divorce. Hmmm…

        http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2347566/Tish-Cyrus-nuzzles-Billy-Ray-arm-arm-lunch-outing–10-days-announcing-split.html

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        What more do you need to know about the story besides that he cheated? If I found out that my husband cheated I wouldn’t need to know anything more. The details would just be excuses for poor behavior.

      • Asdfg says:

        To each their own. Just because your partner cheats on you emotionally or sexually doesn’t mean he doesn’t love you or deserves forgiveness.

        I would hope one would not throw away a 20 year marriage over a one night stand. I can’t really relate to this kind of situation though. I’ve never been married and i’m only 21.

  29. Magsmarq says:

    It’s called projection and Miley calling out her father on Twitter is equivalent to what she’d really like to say to Liam. She won’t do that however, because she’s so damn desperate to keep Liam, so to air out her anger over her own relationship, she steps into her parents dysfunction. She should deal with her own issues, period.

  30. Nerd Alert says:

    OMG TOTL DRAMZ.

    Not classy, but I don’t think it was as immature of her as everyone is saying, though.

    What’s immature is being in a relationship with the facade of monogamy, and then repeatedly cheating on each other and getting back together. It clearly affects their children to the point that one partner at least is too selfish to talk to his daughter. Have an open relationship or don’t have one at all, the monogamy isn’t working, ya’ll.

    In the words of Sterling Mallory Archer: Un-head-up-your-ass!

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      ITA…I think it’s weird that everyone’s vilifying Miley when it was her father who cheated. I mean really, what’s the appropriate protocol when both your parents are cheating a-holes?

      Sure, Miley grates on our last collective nerve, but I think vilifying her for a tweet about her father’s affair is kind of over-the-top.

      • Nerd Alert says:

        No kidding. Some people will hate on this girl for anything. If my parents were like hers, I would be just about as mature as she is at 20 (could be a hell of a lot worse off, IMO). They cheat all over each other, they pimped her out, and he IS acting like a child if she can’t even get a text back from her dad.

        Bottom line: when you’re a douche, expect people to treat you like one. If she has to call a douche out on Twitter, so be it.

        I feel bad for any double-douche descendant.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        @ NErd Alert-that’s basically what I said above.

        I’m well-adjusted because my parents are phenomenal. I might suck at life too if my parents were selfish a-holes.

      • Lee says:

        I completely agree. And I also think a lot of people forget that the Cyrus’ family situation is completely different than most of us understand. Miley was put out there and sold to Disney by her parents as a child. Despite her own occasional half-hearted pleas for privacy, I doubt she knows a life where the whole world wasn’t involved in her private life anyways.

        I may never have exposed the dirty details of my parents divorce as a child, but that doesn’t mean Miley deserves to the vilified for handling her situation how she did. Plus, as much as we gossip followers would like to think we know the dirt, it seems entirely likely to me that there’s a lot more behind the scenes we aren’t privy to.

    • gg says:

      I think they’re all being horrible. Several wrongs don’t make a right.

      • Nerd Alert says:

        Fair enough, I’m not saying she was right or cheering her on, so we agree there.

        The difference is that she is 20 and was robbed of her teenage years while her parents are in their 40′s and were the ones robbing her. They should be held to different standards of maturity, IMO.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Agree with Nerd Alert.

        I hear ya, gg, I certainly don’t think it was the smartest thing for Miley to do but as others have said, I’m REALLY happy social media wasn’t a “thing” when I was her age. Hell, even texting was rarely used back then. I just know that it took me many years to learn to deal with hurt feelings and anger in a private way. I definitely had my ill-advised moments when I went off on a guy that I felt burned me or placed a drunken phone call to a dude that did me wrong. My point being that young people are impulsive and reactionary in general and rarely do they take the time to think about the consequences of their behavior. Sure it’s stupid, but I think if we’re being fair, we’ve all been there before.

        I didn’t start REALLY learning how to deal with anger and resolve things privately until I was in my late-twenties. Now I force myself to “sleep on it” before I express hurt feelings and more often than not, just having that time to clarify my thoughts and resolve things in my own way is enough for me to squash it and move on.

      • gg says:

        I appreciate the posts and insight. Well, maybe she’s learned something.

        Meanwhile, the mom and dad are more than embarrassing as hell. They act like teenagers.

      • Nerd Alert says:

        @The Original Kitten, we are peas in a pod in certain ways. I’m about to finish up my twenties and it is only recently that I really started coping with my emotions in a constructive manner. To be able to stop myself before I react and actually put myself in someone else’s shoes, to THINK about my affect on people before I say or do something, is life-changing.

        My impression of Miley is that she’s come so far from the person she was forced to be at 15, she actually can’t grasp how far she has to go. But, that illustrates your original point as well, @gg ;)

        @Lee you make very good points. A lot of people forget what Miley was put through and exposed to, and who did that to her. I don’t know how I would react if I found out one of my parents was cheating, let alone both. I would recommend a divorce for sure, though.

  31. TheOriginalWaffle says:

    If you have a father who’s manipulative and selfish and takes the family money and cheats on your mother … but everyone else treats your father like he’s a saint … you end up having dreams of calling him out in this fashion.

    I’m not saying I’d actually do it, but boy it’s tempting.

  32. Huh says:

    Not too harsh against her father. COMPLETELY harsh and fking inappropriate beyond belief to that woman.

    Smug brat Miley probably doesn’t know exactly what happened there, what her father told her, etc. — that woman has her own career and concerns. Ridiculous and nasty as hell, and frankly typical of how some women react to ‘love triangles.’ The reddest paint always splashes on the ‘other woman.’

  33. Greenie says:

    He deserves it. He blew through all the money he made in his career on cocaine and prostitutes and then pimped out his daughter as a child star to rebuild the family fortune. Most of her actions lately seem to be trying to live down/distance herself from that embarrassing Hannah Montana crap.

    …and this is the same father who complained to a magazine about her smoking weed instead of speaking directly to her. So fk him.

    • jwoolman says:

      No, he didn’t. He’s quite rich precisely because he didn’t blow all his money on stupid things. He’s lived a relatively simple life compared to most in his profession. He made his own money, he did not leech off Miley. She was clearly self-driven, I don’t think her parents pushed her into anything. She pushed herself. Some kids really are like that. She’s at an awkward stage in such a career, which is also making things tough on her. She’s good, but not the superstar she played on tv.

  34. lolalola3 says:

    Who does this little girl think she is? Does anyone, ANYONE, really care about Billy Ray whatsisname? **Crickets**…

    Yeah. That’s what I thought.

  35. gg says:

    Twitter is not for airing out personal family business. It’s harmful. I bet parents all over are damning the existence of it because their bratty kids think it’s okay to broadcast everything to the world.

  36. Dommy Dearest says:

    I swear if she starts begging for their families privacy this girl will be the biggest idiot. She aired their dirty laundry which means this is all out in the open. Interviewers should be able to ask Miley questions when she gives interviews on the subject, not avoid it. I’m interested to see the outcome of these antics. Really am.

  37. Enn says:

    Tacky. My dad cheated on my mom, too, Mort, and I’m so sorry that yours turned out to be such a shit. You seem like a great person in your posts on here. I have no relationship with my father because of the things he did, and the things he didn’t do. That being said, my mom always taught me that you don’t air your dirty laundry.

    That last bit is directed at Miley, not you.

  38. Fan says:

    Why is she acting like she is the boss of the family without regards or respect to her parent’s privacy? Just because she has money does not mean she can bypass parental respect.

  39. jen says:

    TELL TWITTER DAD!!! It is sooooo important everyone knows this hugely important information!!!!!! can this child shut up already???

    So don’t call me nothin’ bad as you are the same as mom cheatin’ too.. makes no sense

  41. Eammes says:

    She has no problem calling her dad out but is still chasing around her cheating fiance?

  42. Mia says:

    My father cheated on my mother when I was very young and it still affects us. I can’t say I blame her. If I had a platform to publicly embarrass my father for being a cheating, lying philanderer who threatened our family unit for no reason, I might be tempted to take it too.

    • DEB says:

      And drag yourself down to their level? She’s being an a-hole, and has been for some time now. Let her be, lol, she’ll ruin herself soon enough.

      • CC says:

        Just so you know, people that go through this are already dragged down as it is due to the effects it has, but instead of knowing the truth while everyone else applauds the cheater (mom or dad) as a swell guy/gal while you know that person has absolutely no respect for the family, everyone gets to know. Instead of you having to bottle everything in because you have no one to tell the truth to.

      • DEB says:

        That’s true, cc. Fair enough.

      • Mia says:

        Going to to their level? A child embarrassing their cheating father is nowhere near as bad as a father who cheats on their wife, threatens their family unit, and fucks with their children’s sense of stability. People like that should be ashamed, and everyone else effected by infidelity should have the right to discuss how a traumatic betrayal like that effects them on a personal level.

        Maybe Miley did cheat on Liam Hemsworth, but do you think she might be repeating her parents dysfunctional patterns of infidelity in her own relationship? Or that she might have trust or commitment issues because one or both of her parents were cheaters? When you cheat on your spouse and you have children, it effects everyone in the family very deeply in ways you can’t even dream of. The fault lies with the cheater, not the people who may or may not want to discuss how they were impacted by the cheating.

    • sputnik says:

      yeah, i’m glad social networking wasn’t around when i was younger. god knows what my siblings and i would have said about my philandering father. it’s not very mature but it seems like she’s just lashing out.

  43. Vanessa says:

    If Miley dad did cheat then shame on him for putting his family throught this but at the same time what if she wrong. Miley is a disrespect rude brat if she had a problem with her father she could have talk to him privately not air her family secret on twitter Miley is not all about music. She is a fully on drama queen it’s funny she all cheat is wrong and horrible but she has no problem staying with Liam .

  44. Leslie says:

    No kids likes to find out that a parent is cheating. I can understand where she’s coming from. She sent the tweet without stoping to think. She just wanted to lash out at her father probably after learning the cheating news from her momma.

  45. gg says:

    Billy Ray is not the only person this affects. What about the other lady? Why ruin her now? She might’ve been told they were split up at the time and regrets the affair and now it’s been broadcast around the world. I for one don’t wanna know everybody’s dirty laundry.

    • Hakura says:

      @gg – This is true. =( I’m sure that woman’s well-being was the last thing on her mind when she posted her message.

    • Mia says:

      I’m sorry but the woman is the last person I’d sympathize with before his wife and kids. It’s not her job to care about that woman or her reputation when she might have a hard time processing this herself and has her own mother and younger siblings to worry about.

      • gg says:

        She should’ve stopped to think first. I think everybody should consider everyone it impacts before broadcasting anything worldwide. She did it in an act of impulse, which means she didn’t stop to think of far-reaching consequences. She removed it quickly which means she thought better of it – but too late, everybody’s seen it.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        Also, billy ray is a public figure. One google search would indicate he’s married.

      • Huh says:

        She had no right whatsoever to do that. She was presumably not privy to whatever this woman did or did not do and did or did not discuss with Billy Ray.

        I can’t believe the anger in this thread, and the assumptions about Miley knowing enough to be in the right about this, when what is known is that she’s an impulse-control-challenged, relentless attention-whore drags someone else into her drama. It’s just a shitty thing for Miley to do, particularly since she lied about it and claimed her Twitter ‘went cray’ (on Dlisted.)

  46. Pixie says:

    She’s just being Miley, y’all.
    Seriously…this isn’t good. I can understand the hurt and pain she must be feeling if he’s been revealed as a cheater, etc but she has to handle this in private. Calling him out on Twitter isn’t fair- not to him, but her siblings. Miley’s showing some real immaturity here. Yes, Billy Ray shouldn’t have cheated- but it also shouldn’t have been plastered over Twitter by his daughter.

    • Vanessa says:

      Agreed what if the rumor is not true and billy and this women. Were just co worker nothing more. Now this women is public shame for something she didn’t do. She might have kids and a husband too. Miley actions was straight up selfish she was not thinking about anyone. But herself she is 20 years old she knows better. Miley was acting like brat who threated their father like that you have one hour. To call me or I’m going to embrass you on twitter. Miley is not some innocent newly famous person. She knew what she was doing by twittering this she just embrass herself and her family. And this women family too over something that could of happen. But no one knows for sure and now Miley is back tracking saying her twitter went cray. Miley is immature and brat I think Miley is so used to her parents letting run her the household. Now she thinks she own her parents and she think can blackmail them into doing what she wants. When she does not get her way Miley is over grown brat. And she is older to know better there is no excuse for behavior

  47. Hakura says:

    I actually feel sorry for her, losing her ‘family unit’ right at the start of adulthood. But when parents split up, it’s very common for kids to take sides/blame 1 parent more than the other.

    I just hope it gets sorted out, for her sake.

  48. blaize says:

    Immature and impulsive thing to do? Definitely. But I can’t say I blame her at all. I know what it’s like to learn that a parent is doing something like this, all the while still acting like everything is ok. You go into a rage and respond to it in a stupid, impulsive, immature way, like an internet rant, a disrespectful text rant that you send to all parties involved, (that’s what I did) or something else you shouldn’t do. Boy, what drama that caused.

    Plus, as someone else mentioned, this is probably her impulsive way of defending her mom, since her mom was basically labeled a trashy whore when the rumors about her came out.

    By the way, I thought everyone should know that apparently Miley is claiming that she didn’t send that tweet or that she didn’t mean to. She’s either implying that someone else tweeted it or that something went wrong, but I’m not sure I buy that. I think she’s backpedaling now because she feels bad about it. When I did what I did, I ended up having to apologize to people and I ended up feeling bad about it later. So embarrassing.

  49. Spring Season says:

    She needs to stay out of grown folks business. Meaning her parents marriage. She is just like us on the outside looking in. She doesn’t know what all the details/problems of parents relationship and she shouldn’t because she’s their child. Miley and a lot of other celebs need to stop airing their issues on Twitter.

  50. anon says:

    well if daddy answers we may get the sccop on Miley and Liam.. this could get uglier faster

  51. Lark says:

    Thing is, nobody knows what Billy Ray said to this woman. People remember the huge Brett Michael rumors with her Mom; hell, I think even some legitimate news sources reported on it. For all we know, Billy Ray could have told this lady he and his wife had an open marriage. That’s why I think this is totally inappropriate. Also, don’t air your dirty laundry in public.

  52. Miss Melissa says:

    I know this is going to be controversial, but I speak from experience here.

    When a man cheats on his wife, he cheats on his whole family. Miley is at the age where she identifies with her mom not only as a role model, but the female half of a relationship. She feels like her dad betrayed her too.

    It will be years before she can rebuild things with him and see both of her parents as whole people, and see both sides of the story. If she is close to her mother, she will only see her as the wronged party.

    She is young, idealistic and just learning about the difficulties of long term adult relationships. She is not capable of seeing her father as anything but the person who hurt her mother and destroyed her family to pursue another woman. And he is not taking responsibility for it.

    Been there, done that.

    • Lark says:

      I semi-agree. I tend to be more far more annoyed with people who cheat while they have children, because they are not only betraying their significant other but possibly uprooting their own children’s lives for a quick cheap, thrill. One of the reasons I’ve never cared for the word home-wrecker (although the other person is an asshole too) is because I feel that Billy Ray wrecked his own home by endangering the structure of his family unit.

      At the same time though, you just don’t know the relationship between your parents sometimes. If I recall correctly, even some legitimate sources were reporting of the affair between Trish and Brett Michaels. It’s possible that Trish and Billy Ray had an open relationship if she did have an affair, and they were divorcing for other reasons. It’s possible he told the other woman that he was separated. There is just so much unknown, which is why I dislike that she went on social media and aired this. However, the things you do in your late teens and early 20s are often not thought through.

    • Cece says:

      Not sure what any of that has to do with outing the guy on Twitter. She can never take that back, even when she repairs her relationship with her dad (which she probably will).

      Sorry, but I think she is nothing less than classless and immature. All families deal with problems – she needs to approach her issues like an adult, not a child stamping her foot and throwing a tantrum.

    How can this b*tch think it’s even close to appropriate to blabber a private family matter to the Twitterverse? It’s appalling what social media does to people’s brains! Or in her case, social media and all the weed. She really needs to check herself.

  55. Huh says:

    The idea that people who have extramarital affairs need to be publicly outed is incredibly disturbing to me. I have the same story a lot of people do – one unfaithful parent, lots of pain because of it – and I think it’s dead wrong. I don’t believe in a society that values vengeance, public shaming for activities between consensual adults, however unfair and traumatic for other relationships, and anything else reminiscent of Arthur Dimmesdale. How repugnant and moralistic and absurd.

    • Bijlee says:

      …what would humanity do without their weekly witch hunt? Lol then we really shouldn’t be on a gossip site should we? I don’t know, I’m on the fence.

      I think public shaming is a good thing for cheaters. They should feel the consequences of what they’ve done. Not to the extent of other FAR more serious crimes, but definitely “hey man you destroyed your family, that was wrong.”

      But then again things like this shouldn’t be aired out to the public because so many people can be hurt by all the public shaming when they had NOTHING to do with it and when people don’t really know the whole story. That’s one reason why I’m uncomfortable with it. You don’t really know the truth in such relationships. You don’t know who manipulated who and what went down and the character of those involved. It’s a slightly difficult thing to wrap your head around.

      I wanna know what Dolly has to say. The gal is a family friend and is very rational and reasonable. She’s a close friend of BRC’s too.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      They out themselves, but we let them know that it’s not tolerated by turning our backs on them publicly. I’m offended that you find my behavior “repugnant.” I spent years covering up for my father while the public thought me stupid or laughed behind my back. After years of rumors I told people I was not stupid, I knew the truth. That I was done covering for him and had severed ties because of the choices he had made. I only confirmed what everyone already knew and took the power away from him, and for that I was shown respect. After that, he alone had to be accountable for his repugnant behavior. Perhaps you’ve never been in my position, but I’m willing to bet you haven’t , as you appear to have more sympathy for the cheater than the families their behavior affects.

  56. Jaded says:

    Why do celebrities air their filthy laundry in public? It’s the lowest form of revenge. Deal with your family issues within your family, not in the media for public castigation.

    Children of a marriage in crisis feel helpless. If DAddy is not responding she damn well will make him respond. I totally get it. Especially if Daddy thinks he might be made of Teflon, or he thinks that Miley is too clueless to see what is going down. She must be so furious and beside herself.

    And get used to it, this is the new norm.

    I feel like Billy Ray should be called out on his cheating ways. If he refuses to communicate with his daughter, I guess he sort of brought the repercussions on himself. These two parents of Miley should both grow up.
    I really dislike all the “public” sites like Facebook, Twitter and etc. Personal things should be handled in personal ways

    Acting like she’s having a tantrum…She looks just real sad, lost & wanting a real hug. Thats all.

    She’d be a nobody if it weren’t for her Dad’s one hit wonder. Miley sure knows how to give him an Achy Breaky Heart.

    Twitter this, Twitter that..
    but what the EFF is up with those terrible pants in that picture of her that is posted?!

    Miley.. It wasn’t January Jones or some other hot gal.. Liam saw you in those pants and was all like “Whaaaatt…. I gotta go!”
    Come on girl! You can do better :)

    That’ll come around and bite her on her ass. Just wait until those words are launched into HER ears. Miley, Beibs and Will Smith’s boy (Jayden?) need to be shipped off to a deserted island for a few years. Perhaps at that point we can discuss re-entry into civilized life. :p

    Gee, I wonder who’s in control in this family……..must be the breadwinner, Miss Miley!
