Cyrus family is in turmoil over Miley’s 20-year-old boyfriend


In public, they put on quite a show to look like the perfect family, but sources say that behind closed doors, the Cyrus family is just as dysfunctional as everyone else. The root of the problem is 16-year-old Miley and her 20-year-old boyfriend, Justin Gaston, who is now living with the family. Apparently, dad Billy Ray and mom Tish thought that having the pair under their roof together would be a good way to monitor their underage daughter and make sure things don’t get too physical. But the plan backfired, according to reports. While Billy Ray appears in public to be crazy about Miley’s man, behind the scenes, the stage dad is fuming.

Ever since her 20-year-old boyfriend, Justin Gaston, moved into the family home in Toluca Lake, Calif., Miley’s been battling with her parents, dad Billy Ray and mom Tish have been quarreling, and even her little brother and sister have been ganging up on her, sources tell Star.

“Miley’s mom and dad bicker non-stop,” a friend of the family reveals. “They thought having Justin in the house would make it easier to keep an eye on him and Miley, but they’re having a hard time because Justin has no boundaries.”

The friend says that Justin – a former underwear model and wannabe singer who insists that he and Miley do not sleep together – walks around the house in nothing but his briefs, angering Billy Ray. And he has a ferocious appetite, so he repeatedly raids the family refrigerator! “Justin recently devoured an entire apple pie that Billy Ray was looking forward to eating when he got home,” says the friend. “Unfortunately, all he found when he got home was the empty tin.”

That’s not the only battle being wages in the Cyrus household. “Billy Ray and Tish are having a tough time managing all the drama that comes with having a teenage superstar for a daughter,” says the friend. “They don’t only fight about Justin. They fight about Miley’s money, Miley’s career and Miley’s increasingly rebellious behavior.”

[From Star Magazine print version, March 2, 2009]

All together now: Boo hoo! Only an idiot would think that allowing your teen daughter’s 20-year-old boyfriend to move in is a good idea. As for the claim that they aren’t sleeping together – it’s not the sleeping that they should be worried about. Clearly, Miley is unsupervised often enough to take inappropriate photos of herself and post them online. What else is she capable of doing, especially with a 20-year-old who likes to parade himself around in underwear? Now these moron parents have the nerve to be surprised that it’s not working out? What did they think was going to happen? As for fighting over their daughter’s money and career – let’s not forget who pushed little Miley into the spotlight in the first place. These two stage parents pulled out all the stops to get their kid famous, and now that she is, they’d better learn how to deal with it fast or she’s going to end up as yet another child star cautionary tale. If they can’t handle the pressure now, just wait until Miley pulls that old child star stunt and has herself legally emancipated. You all know it’s coming! I think we all know how this story will end – Hollywood roadkill, folks. This is just chapter one.

    Their first Really big mistake was taking the easy way out, and allowing Miley to be BFF’s with that trashy 20-year old back up singer.

  2. becca says:

    I’m just going to sit back with a bucket of popcorn and watch the Cyrus machine implode. Aaaany day now :)

  3. Christina says:

    mmmmmmmmmmmm apple pie…

  4. Ash says:

    “Justin recently devoured an entire apple pie that Billy Ray was looking forward to eating when he got home,” says the friend. “Unfortunately, all he found when he got home was the empty tin.”

    What a good example. Grrrr… that Justin

  5. Melanie says:

    I know this story just got me thinking the same thing Christina!

  6. what is ever. says:

    So, this dude is playing the shit out of Miley and her parents (among the other laundry list of reasons this is wrong), and it’s the empty pie tin that has billy’s panties in a bunch…

    Another day, another task of redefining asinine… accomplished.

  7. Eileen Yover says:

    Yes. I am craving pie now too.
    I’m cracking up-we’ve all read so much on here the only thing that gets our attention anymore is the apple pie.

  8. the original kate says:

    so billy ray and his wife have no control over who moves into their family home? redneck losers.

  9. SolitaryAngel says:

    Damn it! Now I want apple pie too!

    @ becca: move over, girl–share that popcorn with ME! We’ll watch it together, and I could even be persuaded to bring the margaritas!

  10. NotBlonde says:

    LOL about the pie. I so want pie….Christina and Eileen have got me wanting pie.

  11. Annie says:

    Wow. *rofl* That’s insane.

    And seriously disrespectful of a house guest. Thank God my boyfriend would never behave like that. Although to be fair, at my mother’s house, he doesn’t even step past the living room into the bedroom area. And we are definitely older than little Miss Cyrus.

  12. Eileen Yover says:

    I’m sure there is a Freudism in there somewhere. Thank God it’s mostly women who read this!

  13. caribassett says:

    I just do not understand. She is a child. Kick out that boyfriend, ground that little girl, throw away her cell phone and computer. Toss the trashy clothes, and begin to behave like parents that love their child. It is really not that hard.
    Loving your child does not mean letting her destroy herself, and get away with murder. Do they love Miley, or her paychecks?

  14. Blah Girls says:

    well who’s bright idea was it to have him move in anyway??

  15. LondonParis says:

    …her paychecks.
    just like the spears and the lohan families.

  16. Codzilla says:

    Pie DOES sound good. But the only thing even remotely dessert-like in my cupboards is a half full bottle of that Green Apple Pucker, leftover from a party we had about 100 years ago. Do you think it’s still OK to drink?

    Ah, f*ck it, bottom’s up!

  17. TinaWithPom says:

    Earning a paycheck does not maturity make.

    Miley is still just a teenager. And I totally agree that Cyruses sponging off their Little Miley Money-maker.

  18. Because I Say So says:

    The Cyruses must have obviously read Lynne Spears’ book on how to properly raise a child.

  19. Mairead says:

    We’re obsessing over the pie because, let’s face it, it’s seemingly the closest thing to an intelligent life-form in that house. ;-)

    Wait until their son becomes a teenager – they have quite a few years of an empty fridge ahead of them yet.

  20. Eileen Yover says:

    Ooo Codzilla genius! I have old Apple Pucker somewhere too! Maybe I should get it and play a game that every time someone mentions pie on here I take a shot. Just like every time a bells rings, but better!

  21. Bodhi says:

    Kick the freeloader out! DUH!

    Apple Pucker does sound mighty tasty…

  22. jjm says:

    Billy Bob Ray needs to go to Wal-Mart and buy a Mossberg/Remington shotgun. Either meet Mr. Gaston at the door and put the fear of God into the punk or catch him with his hand in Miley’s underage Cherry Pie and make for another chapter in E’s True Hollywood Story; Death of a Statutory Rapist! No judge would convict him!

  23. jarkko says:

    This sounds just like a sitcom plot, what with the apple pie and the underwear. Good times.

  24. Annie says:

    Pucker+Crown+splash of cranberry juice = amazingness.

    And oh, pucker does not go bad. Not in my book anyway.

  25. Ata girl, Coz!

    MSat – I love your write up! I’d only add a “Boo-f*cking-hoo” for increased sarcasm and callousness.

  26. Todd H says:

    She is for a rude awakening when she gets a little older and the “next big thing” appears in the Disney stable and she’ll be resorted to gigs at malls putting on a cheap blonde wig to play her alter ego.

  27. Renee says:

    apple pie: apple pucker, hot damn, butter shots, and apple cider. so good!

  28. Jolie says:

    The dude is a child rapist. Why isn’t he in jail? People now know him more as the face of a perv than a male model. I guess daddy doesn’t want to upset the bread winner of the family.

  29. Eileen Yover says:

    See how great CB readers are. We go from Disney, teenage girl, and apple pie to liquor. LOL
    BTW-3 shots so far…I be start slurring my typing pretty soon.

  30. czarina says:

    Okay…I could go for some pie. CB must have caught us all in dessert mode (ooooh…pie a la mode!!!)

    ANYWAY, the first mistake was not letting this guy move in…it was allowing their (then) 15 year old daughter to date a 20 year old man.
    I don’t know how accurate this story is, but I wouldn’t be surprised.
    I knew when I read Billy Ray in an interview saying how he wanted to be his daughter’s “best friend”, that it would be a disaster.
    Kids have friends their own age.
    What they need are parents who are willing to suffer the tantrums and the angst (and the “I hate you!”‘s) in order to make rules and have boundaries.
    Why on earth is this guy living there anyway? Doesn’t he have a job? A place of his own to live?
    See, this is what comes of parents who are so selfish they want to bask in their child loving and adoring them at all times more than they want to be the adult and make tough decisions.

  31. eternalcanadian says:

    lolz. ah, but see, they goofed big time when they let him move in. i mean, please, we all saw this train wreck 10 miles away.

    next! :D

  32. CB Rawks says:

    Slooow news day!
    And Billy Ray, you should have whooped the douche’s ass with that pie tin!

  33. wende says:

    Checkout miley neck it already looks like she been getting a good work out it looks as wrinkled as kimora lee simmons. Shes being taught slowly.

  34. pixiegirl says:

    There’s no way to teach a redneck how to raise a child. You just have to watch them let their teenage child get pregnant/hooked on meth/generally do whatever they want. Seriously! It’s the age old story that won’t stop.

  35. georgia says:

    Give it a few months, she’ll b preggers!

    He is awfuly hot but none theless getting a free ride to a reality tv show.

  36. Wonder Woman says:

    Just looking out for the sex tape :) , then all hell is going to brake lose. Of course nothing severe will come out of it…like the bf getting arrested or child services would step in, but still an entertaining story to look forward to.

  37. Madelyn Rose says:

    Hmmmm….letting the boyfriend move in with your teenage daughter is just not right. From her interviews, it seems like that (mom let her and her boyfriend live together as a teenager) really messed up Angelina Jolie. They got into the whole knife/sex thing and the drugs…not good.

  38. Obvious says:

    i don’t blame Justin. just the parents. he’s riding the gravy train-and actually i bet he isn’t sleeping with her-he seems to have this live-with-a-star-who-will-pay-for-everything-without-getting-in-trouble-thing down pat.

  39. Goddess711 says:

    Like a modern-day Beverly Hillbillies, Justin’s replaced Jethro.
    Don’t know what apple pucker is but it sounds good, give me a double!
    Don’t they have statutory rape laws down there in…wait…this is the Cyruses we’re talking about. MAKE THAT A TRIPLE!

  40. trish says:

    can wait to see what they do without miley’s money when she gets fed up with their bullshit.

  41. whatever says:

    its star magazine,so theres a 99.9% chance
    this story is bullshit.
    remember,dead britney?
    i hope miley´s
    parents arent that stupid.

  42. Taylor says:

    I think Justin is making miley’s life worse than it already is…if miley wants to move on a be a role model she needs to stop hanging out with Justin…and the fact that he LIVES with her…THATS DISGUSTING! Shes like 16 years old! I totally believe that mileys parents did NOT raise her good enough.

  43. slicklock says:

    he ate the apple pie Billy Ray was looking forward to when he got home? That’s just too funny not to be real.. this could be a great Hannah Montanna spinoff

  44. dawlface says:

    sounds like someone had the munchies.

  45. Carlos says:

    Uh…. Why has no one mentioned how isnanely got JUstin Gaston is?? To have that beaut strolling around in his underwear is a fucking HONOR and the family need to respect that.

  46. Judy says:

    There is no way any court will let her go on her own. There has to be a very valid reason and she doesnt have one besides the fact she wants to get laid.
    Billy needs to say NO and throw the kid
    out of his home and make her date kids her age period. If she doesnt want that then she can sit at home at night like any other kid.

  47. Sue Townsend says:

    What’s with the redneck junk. Sounds like Miley is being raised like all celeb kids, do as she pleases, no boundries. That couldn’t be farther from redneck raising. Get to know some true rednecks before you down them, you’d be surprised. What’s with Disney backing this so called role model? Wouldn’t let my 16 year old even hang with her.

  48. pie chick says:

    god damn it! wat the h*ll! Kick that perv out and ground that slut! SERIOUSLY! Oh, n i need some of that apple pucker! a triple plzzzzzz. ill take some popcorn too. n some pie! im hungry! Just give it 9 months, miley will have her own little baby with Justin that she will turn into a slut/hoar just like what happened to her. I feel bad for miley’s soon to be baby. Id run away at age 3! Oh, n @ the bottom of the screen it says mileys IQ, 122. I’m younger than her and i got 229 on the same test! God damn it shes stupid!

  49. pie chick says:

    i am really smart though for a 6th grader. : )

  50. ray says:

    i talked with billy ray once at one of his concerts…and i knew then….almost 20 yrs ago he was a dumb ass redneck

  51. Janeyre says:

    Talk about dysfunctional family values… How old is the younger brother? These parents are really weird. This girl is out of control and that guy is too old for her. Have him locked up…

  52. raquel says:

    Gosh kick the boyfriend out have a body guard or something to watch her when billy can’t and if not will be seeing the next britney spears on tmz all the time

  53. Aspen says:

    Ate his pie and popped his cherry. /gasp.

    Seriously…I can’t even begin. I’ll stick with my pie comment and leave it at that.

    Okay…so maybe I’ll just say one more thing: “Parenting, Billy Ray. Look it up, you jackass.”

  54. chastity belts r us says:

    They’ve come a long way making chastity belts. You can even buy them with alarms.

    Or, you could let the girl get laid. I’d focus more on birth control than vagina control if I were Billy Ray.

    Regardless, kick the creep out. He’s a star f**ker and is stealing the Cyrus family blind as they sleep. If you’d get your borderline incestuous claws off her and let her get some action, this 30-year old in a 16 year old body would be easier to control, dad and mom.

    If, not, just lock her up at night. click!

  55. Wendy says:

    You know what’s funny is how Trace(Miley’s half brother from another marriage) is out on his own making a name for himself and his sister is slowly turning her career in a nuclear waste dump.

  56. Wendy says:

    Oh someone give me the popcorn and pie.

  57. Kisha says:

    I think they should keep justin out. And learn how to raise there child first then her attiude then the boy!!!!
    Just because she’s famous doesnt mean that she not like any other 16 year old teen who needs her mom and dad and her chores and rules and RESPECT.

  58. HSHSTROJAN2012 says:

    I LIKE PIE =)

    I always knew Miley was a slut from the beginning!

    The way she acts on her show, Hannah Montana…it makes me wanna freakin throw the tv out of my freakin two story window!

    She wasnt even supposed to be Hannah Montana…


    Ya’ll should try a lime margarita with two shots of tequilla and a little cherry on top *ding*!!! =)
